SAINT JOHN, N. Brad Miller Jersey .B. -- The skips voice rasped and there was fatigue in her face. Rachel Homan and her Ottawa Curling Club team were ready to put their feet up for an evening and a morning at the Ford World Womens Curling Championship after three straight wins, one of them a white-knuckler. "Oh my god, so ready. I cant wait to not curl for 24 hours," Homan said Wednesday. "I feel like its midnight, so it will be nice to get a break." The Canadians arrived at a break in the schedule tied atop the standings with Switzerlands Binia Feltscher at 8-1. The Canadians reverted to their custom of both taking the lead and finishing a game early in a 10-3 win over South Koreas Ji-sun Kim, who shook hands after eight ends. But Canada went the distance in the morning draw. They stole three points over the final two ends to rescue a 7-5 win over Germanys Imogen Oona Lehmann. That was the first time Homan threw her final stone at the world championship and just the second time Canada played a 10th end in Saint John. Theyd beaten Scotland the previous evening and were back on the Harbour Station ice in the morning. "It was a long haul, three games in a row on not much sleep and a big grind this morning against Germany," Homan said. Homan, third Emma Miskew, second Alison Kreviazuk and lead Lisa Weagle headed to dinner with family members feeling confident about their position. Canada concludes the round robin Thursday against China and Sweden. "Two great teams," Miskew said. Swedens Margaretha Sigfridsson and Russias Anna Sidorova were both 7-2 followed by Chinas Liu Sijia and South Korea tied at 6-3 and Allison Pottinger of the U.S. at 5-4. Scotlands Kerry Barr and Anna Kubeskova of the Czech Republic were 2-7 with Germany, Latvias Evita Regza and Denmarks Madeleine Dupont at 1-8. The top four teams in the preliminary round advance to the Page playoff. Ties for fourth will be solved by tie-breaker games. The countries with the two best records meet in one playoff game Friday with the winner advancing directly to Sundays gold-medal game. The loser drops to Saturday afternoons semifinal to meet the winner of a morning playoff between the third and fourth seeds. "We have our fate in our own hands," Homan said. "Weve got to win out and see what happens with everybody else." The Canadians, all 28 years old or younger, couldnt hide their pleasure at the prospect of sleeping in Thursday morning. They intended to stop in at the tournament party room before bed Wednesday "because theres a band there Signal Hill that we like," Miskew said. "Theyve come to Ottawa and we usually go and watch them in Ottawa." Canada scored three points in the fourth and stole three in the eighth versus South Korea. Pyeongchang, South Korea, is the host city of the 2018 Winter Olympics. Kim is among the countrys female curlers getting fast-tracked to compete. The 26-year-old skipped South Korea to fourth at the 2012 world championship in Lethbridge, Alta. She beat Canadas Heather Nedohin in a playoff game, but lost the semifinal and lost the bronze-medal rematch to Nedohin. Kim threw third stones against Homan with Un-chi Gim, her lead in Lethbridge, throwing fourth stones. With the score tied 2-2, the South Koreans played conservatively in the fourth end by putting up guards early on a counter on the button. But Miskews well-executed draw around a guard forced them to chase. South Koreas poorly-placed draws opened the door for Canada to plant more counters around the button. Homan had an easy tap for three points and a 5-2 lead in front of 1,726 at Harbour Station. "Not good," Kim said. "We were a little nervous." Canada recovered from errors against Germany to grind out a win. The Germans led 5-4 heading into the ninth, when Homan and Lehmann shifted momentum back and forth with misses. Lehmann overthrew an attempted double takeout with hammer to leave Canada shot rock for a steal of one. Miskew put guards in front of a Kreviazuk draw to the button in 10th and German third Corinna Scholz missed an attempted hit and roll behind cover. Homan struggled with draws in the earlier ends, but she had it solved by the 10th as she drew in to stack two Canadian counters on the button. Lehmann cleared just one and Homan buried a draw behind a guard to lie two again. The German skips attempt to follow her didnt curl enough. "Youve got to be confident and believe you can steal because theres no other way, theres no other option," Homan said. "It was just tough out there. We werent quite reading things right. There were a lot of uncharacteristic misses. We just tried to figure out our rocks and our lines. We just had to keep playing a little bit better each end and hope for a few lucky breaks and we made it out in the end."

There is no argument that the line of Pacioretty, David Desharnais and Thomas Vanek was one of the hottest in the NHL leading into the post-season, and they did combine for three goals and seven points, but it was the depth of all four lines that helped propel Montreal. https://www.cheappacers.com/273k-chuck-person-jersey-pacers.html . - Aroldis Chapman, with two black eyes, has returned to the Cincinnati Reds clubhouse four days after being hit in the face by a line drive.BARCELONA, Spain -- Spanish sides Valencia, Sevilla and Real Betis booked their spots in the Europa Leagues round of 32 on Thursday, while Tottenham locked up first place in its group with a fifth victory in as many matches. Tottenham claimed top spot in Group K by winning 2-0 at Tromso after defender Adnan Causevic scored an own goal before Mousa Dembele put the result beyond doubt. Valencia made sure it will finish first in Group A with a 1-0 win at Swansea thanks to an early goal from Dani Parejo. Lyon edged Betis 1-0, but both teams advanced from Group I after Rijeka drew 0-0 with Guimaraes. Sevilla also moved on from Group H even though it conceded a 90th-minute equalizer at home to Portuguese side Estoril in a 1-1 draw. Lazio, Genk, AZ Alkmaar, POAK, Rubin Kazan, Trabzonspor, Anzhi, and Ludogorets Razgrad also qualified for the knockout rounds with one group game to go. Beside the 24 teams to emerge from the group phase, the eight teams that finish in third place in their Champions League groups will also join the next round of Europes second-tier club competition. Valencias Parejo put in a deflected attempt by Juan Bernat after Swansea goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel punched out a corner to grab the lead for good in the 20th minute. Sevilla had a bright start seven minutes in when Jose Antonio Reyes sparked a lightning attack with a pass for forward Kevin Gameiro to hit on the break. But Estoril won the ball in the second half and pressed Sevilla into its box until a short delivery from Javier Balboa led to Ruben Fernandes squirting a shot under goalkeeper Javi Varas on the brink of stoppage time. "We played well in the first hallf, but then we relaxed and paid for it," said Reyes. Fred Jones Jersey. Freiburgs 2-1 win at Liberec means that it can qualify by beating Sevilla in the last round. In Lyon, forward Bafetimbi Gomis tapped in a squared ball from Yoann Gourcuff in the 66th to down Betis. Tottenham had already been guaranteed the top spot in its group when Russian club Anzhi could do no better than a 1-1 draw with FC Sheriff. The draw was also good enough to send Anzhi though. But the English side played through sub-zero temperatures and a dusting of snow at its northern Norwegian hosts to extend its winning run. Tottenham went ahead in the 63rd when defender Vlad Chiriches got a touch on a cross from Gylfi Sigurdsson, sending the ball off Causevic and into the net. Dembele scored his goal after receiving a pass from Sigurdsson near the penalty spot, where he fired into the left corner. Turkish team Trabzonspor and Lazio both advanced after comfortable wins. Trabzonspor only needs a draw to with Lazio in their final meeting to finish first in Group J. Olcan Adin was the nights leading scorer with a hat trick to lead Trabzonspor to a 4-2 win over Apollon, while Lazio won 2-0 at Legia Warsaw after goals by Brayan Perea and Felipe Anderson. About 120 Lazio fans were detained before the match after attacking police vans, authorities said. Rubin Kazan advanced from Group D after drawing 1-1 with Maribor. Ludogorets Razgrad won Group B by handing 10-man PSV a 2-0 loss at home. Eintracht Frankfurt claimed first place in Group F by beating Girondins Bordeaux 1-0 on the road. Genks comeback 3-1 win to beat Dynamo Kyiv earned it top spot in Group G. ' ' '
