MOSCOW —Russia held Copa America champion Uruguay to 1-1 in the first of its
three European Championship warmup games on Friday. Ryan Fitzpatrick Womens Jersey . Luis Suarez,
left unmarked in the box, opened the scoring for Uruguay with a low left-footed
shot past diving Vyacheslav Malafeev in the 48th minute. Striker Alexander
Kerzhakov, who substituted for Pavel Pogrebnyak after the break, equalized two
minutes later, scoring past Fernando Muslera from 11 metres. Russia opened
strongly and combined better in front of the visitors goal but struggled to
threaten Muslera. Uruguay seized the initiative midway through the first half
and striker Diego Forlan came close to an opener but his low cross in the box
missed the left post. Edinson Covani wasted another chance for the two-time
world champions, firing just wide of the right post in the 25th. Three minutes
later, striker Marat Izmailov, who last played for Russia in 2006, failed to
beat Muslera from six meters after Andrei Arshavins precise pass into the box.
Russia was more aggressive after the team exchanged goals. Midfielder Roman
Shirokov missed a chance in the 52nd when he stole the ball from Diego Godin in
the box but hit the left outer side of the net. Kerzhakov then outplayed four
Uruguay players but could not control the ball to go one-on-one with Muslera.
Forlan tested Malafeev with a powerful drive from 20 metres in the 85th. “We had
several good moments in the first half but they (Uruguay) were in control of the
game,” Russia coach Dick Advoicat said. “But in the second half we were the
leading team.” Russia next plays Latvia and Italy in Switzerland on May 29 and
June 1 respectively before facing the Czech Republic in its Euro 2012 opener on
June 8. ———Lineups: Russia: Vyacheslav Malafeev, Alexander Anyukov, Alexei

a second-year business student from Waterloo, Ont., scored five of her teams six
goals last weekend, including both game winners, as the fourth-ranked Golden
Hawks (5-0-1) remained undefeated in conference play with road wins against
Western, 2-1, and Windsor, 4-1. Steve Johnson Womens Jersey . Then he jumped
for joy. Landeskog scored with 40 seconds left on a deflection off his skate and
Matt Duchenes shootout goal was the difference in the Colorado Avalanches 3-2

seconds. “It was a good run for me,” said Streitberger, who was only 21st in the
super-G standings going into the race. Bryan Scott Jersey . —Kenny Miller scored
his first MLS goal, but it wasnt enough as the Vancouver Whitecaps lost 2-1 to
the Portland Timbers on Saturday at JELD-WEN Field.EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. —The
New York Giants were all over Mark Sanchez. They got to Tim Tebow, too. With the
Jets offence struggling and the Giants defence in midseason form, this turned
out to be a preseason mismatch. Rookie Jayron Hosley returned an interception of
Sanchez 77 yards for a touchdown, and the defending Super Bowl champions got
seven sacks while stifling the Jets in a 26-3 victory over their hometown rivals
Saturday night. “We played good,” Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said. “Still
a preseason game, still got a lot of things to learn from, but I think we played
fast. We played decisive.” Lawrence Tynes kicked four field goals, and former
Rutgers fullback Joe Martinek had a 14-yard touchdown catch from Ryan Perrilloux
for the Giants (1-1), who never trailed. Eli Manning and the rest of the
offensive starters for the Giants (No. 3 in the AP Pro32) were mostly quiet,
too, but they didnt need much to win on this night. “We have a lot more to fix
than the Giants do, clearly,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said. Both teams struggled on
third downs, with the Giants going 2 for 13 and the Jets 1 for 13. But the Jets
(0-2) had some costly penalties and just couldnt give their quarterbacks much
time to do anything. Embattled right tackle Wayne Hunter got manhandled for four
sacks—including two by Jason Pierre-Paul—although one was negated by a
penalty. “As a defensive line, we were able to get some pressure,” Tuck said.
“And thats really what we need to do if we want to be a good defence.
Defensively, as a whole, we played pretty well. We were able rush the
quarterback. ... Its a step in the right direction, a plus for us.” Sanchez
finished 9 of 11 for 59 yards and the costly interception, but was under
pressure on nearly every play. “Mark threw the ball well tonight,” Ryan said,
“but its hard to throw when youre flat on your back.” Sanchez was also without
injured wide receivers Santonio Holmes, Jeremy Kerley and Chaz Schilens, and it
showed. Through two preseason games, the Jets have failed to score a touchdown.
“We struggled,” Sanchez said. “We were good in spurts, but I know we can play
better than that up front. I know we can block those four-man rush looks. Ive
seen our guys do it. And, I know we have the right personnel.” Tebow, with his
elusiveness and knack for comebacks, couldnt even help the Jets (No. 14) in his
home debut. He led them to their only points of the night on a 30-yard field
goal by Josh Brown, but was sacked four times and finished 5 of 14 for 69 yards.
Hosley, a third-round pick out of Virginia Tech, had the biggest play when he
gave the Giants a 13-0 lead on his long interception return with 2:03 left in
the opening half. With the Jets finally moving the ball, Sanchez tried to get a
short pass to Patrick Turner, but Hosley stepped in front of the toss that was
slightly behind the reeceiver and ran down the sideline untouched. Ryan Fitzpatrick
. “When I threw the ball, I thought it was really accurate,”
Sanchez said. “You miss on one play and thats what can happen.” What made the
play even more remarkable was the fact that Hosley appeared to injure his right
foot on the return. He was wearing a walking boot after the game. He wasnt sure
of the extent of the injury, and expected to have more tests Sunday. Ryan joked
that his teams offence would be “vanilla with some sprinkles”—and he wasnt
kidding. The Jets started slowly and never really got going as the Giants front
seven played like the group that helped lead them to the Super Bowl title last
season. The Jets managed just 148 net yards, including 65 on the ground. “We
were able to stop the run,” Tuck said, “and when that happens, its kind of like
a feeding frenzy with our D-ends.” Tebow came in to a mixed reaction—cheers
from Jets fans and boos from the loads of Giants fans in attendance—and
appeared to energize the team. But he had a shot at his first touchdown on
second-and-20 from the 29 and short-hopped a pass to a wide-open Stephen Hill in
the end zone. “I wanted to throw it to the pylon and low,” Tebow said, “but I
didnt want to throw it that low.” The Jets settled for Browns field goal that
bounced off the right upright and over the crossbar to cut the deficit to 16-3
with 3:26 left in the third quarter. It was the teams first meeting since
Christmas Eve, when Victor Cruzs 99-yard catch helped send the Giants on their
Super Bowl run and the Jets into a disappointing off-season without a playoff
appearance. Tynes gave the Giants a 3-0 lead with a 35-yard field goal on a
12-play drive that was kept alive by a personal foul penalty on the Jets
Joe McKnight—a sign of things to come for the home team. The running back
rolled into punter Steve Weatherford and turned a fourth-and-5 from the Jets 25
to a first-and-10 from the 40. McKnight got an earful from Jets special teams
co-ordinator Mike Westhoff on the sideline after the play. Manning finished 7 of
14 for 62 yards, and was intercepted by LaRon Landry. “I thought we had a couple
good drives and moved the ball,” Manning said. “We converted some third downs,
had some opportunities, but didnt get in the end zone. Whenever you play the
Jets, youre always going against a great defence.” NOTES: Giants RB
Ahmad Bradshaw left the game after a cyst popped on his right hand, but X-rays
were negative and he said he would be fine. LB Mark Herzlich suffered a hip
pointer, and DE Adrian Tracy tweaked a hamstring on the Jets opening series of
the half, and didnt return. ... Giants DE Adewale Ojomo, an undrafted free
agent, had two sacks. ... Jets P T.J. Conley had punts of 19 and 23 yards in the
fourth quarter. ... It was the Giants largest margin of victory over the Jets—
preseason or regular season. ’ ’ ’
