The Western Bulldogs have shown their fighting spirit to return to the AFL winners list, defeating North Melbourne by 14 points at Etihad Stadium.In an ill-tempered contest between two finals-bound teams, the Kangaroos targeted Marcus Bontempelli but the Dogs and their young star prevailed, winning 9.7 (61) to 7.5 (47).The 20-year-old might have expected some attention from North after calling out Lindsay Thomas for a crude tackle on Lachie Hunter in their earlier meeting this year.He was roughed up before the first bounce and found himself in the middle of melees at quarter-time and halftime.Bontempelli wore the jumper punches and the bumps well, responding with a best-afield performance (15 kicks, nine tackles and a goal) in a strong team performance to snap a two-game losing streak.The win both keeps alive the Bulldogs top-four ambitions and delivers a hammer blow to North Melbournes own hopes.The Kangaroos are likely to be two wins outside the top four by rounds end and must play the top three clubs - Hawthorn, Sydney and GWS Giants - in their final three fixtures.Much could depend on an injury to key tall Ben Brown, who left the match early in the second quarter after hurting his already-strapped left knee.North went almost an hour without a goal after Brown departed.Already missing forward Jarrad Waite, the Kangaroos looked toothless when the mop-haired Tasmanian went down.In contrast, the slow-starting Bulldogs warmed into the contest and had plenty of routes to goal, with nine different goalkickers on a low-scoring night.Easton Wood was super in defence for the Bulldogs, with Jason Johannisen full of run.North mounted a challenge in the third term only for Jed Anderson - who was earlier reported for a hit on Lin Jong - to miss a simple set shot that would have brought them within two points.Less than a minute later, Lachie Hunter (21 possessions) kicked a fine running goal to keep the Dogs on top.In his 100th AFL match, Jamie Macmillan was North Melbournes best.The sour note for Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge was yet another injury, a concussion to Clay Smith that ended his night after 10 minutes.Beveridge said it went without saying he was proud of his team.They were enormous tonight, our boys, he said.Showed a lot of heart. It was a great defensive effort to keep North Melbourne to that score.Twenty-two really solid contributors.North Melbourne lost Scott Thompson in the final term to a groin injury.Roos coach Brad Scott said they had their chances but made too many errors.When you dominate parts of the game - disposals - but dont score and get scored against, youre doing something wrong, he said.We over-possessed the ball under pressure ... on balance they deserved their victory tonight.

The 29-year-old Baines has established himself as one of the top attacking full backs in the country and was the subject of two bids from United during the last off-season. Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that keeping Baines at the club is a "massive boost and exciting for the future" because he brings "maturity and football knowledge in a very specialized position on the pitch" and an "infectious and positive influence to the rest of the squad. http://www.cheapjerseysnhladidas.com/ .C. -- Glenn Howard needed an extra end to move into the Masters Grand Slam of Curling final.

The 1.83-meter (6-foot) Leapai defeated the previously unbeaten Denis Boytsov in November to become the WBOs mandatory challenger. WASHINGTON -- The final buzzer sounded, and Marylands players stormed the court to celebrate an improbable win over neighboring Georgetown.It didnt matter that it was only the second game of the season, or that neither team was ranked. The Terrapins had just erased a nine-point deficit over the span of 2 1/2 minutes, and it was time to revel in the moment.We just kept fighting, said Maryland guard Melo Trimble, who capped a 22-point performance by sinking two free throws with 7.6 seconds remaining in a 76-75 victory Tuesday night.Georgetown led 68-59 with 2:21 to go before the Terrapins used a game-ending 17-7 run.We beat a great team tonight, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. Except for fouling, we really guarded well.Maryland (2-0) limited the Hoyas (1-1) to 16 field goals but was outscored 37-17 at the foul line. The Terps won despite going 7 for 27 from beyond the arc and being whistled for 32 fouls.It was 75-72 when Trimble scored on a drive to get Maryland within a point. Tre Campbell then stepped out of bounds for the Hoyas after being pressured in the back court.This is how crazy basketball is: Im yelling foul at the top of my lungs, and he steps out of bounds, Turgeon said. We were very fortunate tonight.Trimble was subsequently fouled while receiving the long inbound pass, made both foul shots, and Terps freshman Kevin Huerter blocked a driving shot by Jagan Mosely just before the final buzzer.While the Terrapins celebrated, the Hoyas somberly trudged off the court.We have to grow. We have to get better. We have to learn from our mistakes, coach John Thompson III said. Just too many mental errors down at the end.L.J. Peak scored 19 of his 22 points in the second half for Georgetown and Rodney Pryor added 14.ddddddddddddTHE RIVALRY RENEWEDMaryland beat the Hoyas 75-71 last season and, with this victory, leads the series 38-27. This marked the first time Georgetown hosted Maryland since the 1993-94 season, even though the schools are only 20 miles apart.FAB FRESHMENMaryland received a huge contribution from its first-year players. In addition to getting a huge defensive play from Huerter, the Terps got 17 points from Justin Jackson and 11 from Anthony Cowan, including four free throws in the final 19 seconds.MELO SHINESTrimble scored 22 points in Marylands opener, an unimpressive 62-56 win over American that dropped the Terrapins out of the top 25.Maryland needed every one of his 22 points against Georgetown.Hes an outstanding player, Thompson said. He did what good players do -- he made plays.BIG PICTUREMaryland: The Terps showed vast improvement from their disappointing showing against American, providing evidence that this freshman-laden team will get better as the season progresses.Georgetown: The Hoyas received an ideal tune-up for the rigorous, physical play that lies ahead in the Big East. Georgetowns 37 for 42 showing at the foul line showed it knows how to take advantage of an overly aggressive defense. They do, however, need work at closing games.UP NEXTMaryland resumes play Thursday night at home against St. Marys (Md.) College, a Division III school that competes in the Capital Athletic Conference.Georgetown faces visiting Arkansas State on Thursday night at McDonough Arena, the teams on-campus facility. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
