Mason Crosby hits FG as time expires to help Packers top 49ers

A pick, a penalty and a game-winning kick. Quite a final minute for the Green Bay Packers. Mason Crosby kicked a 27-yard field goal as time expired to cap an 81-yard drive set up by Kevin King’s interception with 1:07 left, and the Packers outlasted the San Francisco 49ers for a 33-30 win on Monday night. The final drive was extended after 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman was called for an illegal contact penalty on third-and-15 that wiped out a sack of Rodgers with 43 seconds left. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers rushed up the middle for a 21-yard gain on the next

Brewers blank Dodgers to retake NLCS lead

A veteran starter, an intimidating bullpen and a twice-demoted shortstop who is suddenly flashing power helped the Milwaukee Brewers take a 2-1 lead in the NL Championship Series. Jhoulys Chacin combined with four relievers on a five-hitter and Orlando Arcia hit a two-run homer in a 4-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday. Los Angeles loaded the bases against Jeremy Jeffress in the ninth inning, but the struggling closer shut the door. He struck out Yasmani Grandal and pinch-hitter Brian Dozier to complete Milwaukee’s third shutout in six playoff games this year. “Our guys that we’re giving the

When asked about Sale’s status for the rest of the ALCS, Cora said he wanted to see the pitcher first before making that

Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, owner of NFL’s Seahawks and NBA’s Blazers, dead at 65

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, the man who persuaded school-friend Bill Gates to drop out of Harvard to start what became the world’s biggest software company, died on Monday at the age of 65, his family said. Allen left Microsoft in 1983, before the company became a corporate juggernaut, following a dispute with Gates, but his share of their original partnership allowed him to spend the rest of his life and billions of dollars on yachts, art, rock music, sports teams, brain research and real estate. Allen died from complications of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer, the Allen family said

Changing of the guard as Scott Arfield takes over as Canada soccer captain

A changing of the guard is under way with the Canadian men’s soccer team with Scott Arfield taking over as permanent captain from Atiba Hutchinson. Health permitting, Arfield will lead out the 79th-ranked Canadians against No. 177 Dominica in CONCACAF Nation League qualifying play Tuesday at BMO Field. The Glasgow Rangers midfielder also wore the captain’s armband for last month’s 8-0 win over the U.S. Virgin Islands. Arfield, who left practice early Sunday as a precautionary move with a minor knock, has won 13 caps for Canada since making his debut in March 2016. The 35-year-old Hutchinson, arguably Canada’s best

Gleb and Vadim Alekseenko banned from tennis for life for match fixing

Ukrainian twins Gleb and Vadim Alekseenko have been banned from tennis for life and each fined $250,000 (£190,018) for match fixing. The pair were found guilty of multiple match-fixing offences at a number of ITF Futures tournaments between June 2015 and January 2016. They also arranged for another person to bet on matches which they contrived the result. The case was based on an investigation by the Tennis Integrity Unit. The match-fixing offences occurred at tournaments in Romania, Russia, Germany and Turkey on the Futures tour, tennis’ third-tier of tournaments. Vadim Alekseenko is 1,113th in the ATP rankings, having reached

Swinging celebration for joy Ryders

Draped in flags, the victorious team members hugged one another, posed for photos and shared emotional moments with wives and girlfriends. 

Among them was Spaniard Sergio Garcia, who embraced his wife Angela in the middle of the green after beating Ricky Fowler to become the most successful player in Ryder Cup history. 

He then sobbed as he was called a “legend” by team-mate Justin Rose. 

“I don’t usually cry, but I couldn’t help it, what a week,” he said Francesco Molinari was also surrounded by adoring fans after securing the winning putt against Phil Mickelson at Le Golf National, outside Paris. 

He also became the first European to win five points in one tournament. 

The Italian, alongside Englishman Tommy Fleetwood, had spearheaded Europe’s charge against what many believed to be the strongest ever American team. 

Molinari said after the victory: “It means so much more than majors, more than anything. It’s hard not to get emotional.

“They had probably the strongest team ever and we were just so good. It is unreal.” 

Elated Fleetwood, 27, was carried on the back of fellow Englishman Ian Poulter, who later delighted crowds by wearing a pillar-box fancy dress outfit. 

His nickname is “The Postman” as he always delivers points for the team, including beating world number one Dustin Johnson. Englishman Paul Casey, who made one of the best shots of the day, celebrated with his wife Pollyanna. 

Northern Irish legend Rory McIlroy, who was with his US wife Erica Stoll, led the cheers with the 70,000-strong crowd, before Danish captain Thomas Bjorn embraced each of his players. 

As he collected the trophy, he said: “They have been amazing, the 12 of them, unbelievable. “They were determined to set out and do the job themselves. 

“For me it was an easy job to guide them in that direction.” 

The Europeans started the day needing just four and a half points to seal victory. 

The American team briefly threatened a fightback after starting strongly, but were unable to sustain a serious challenge. 

Spaniard John Rahm beat Tiger Woods in a crucial match. 

He said: “To beat Tiger, one of the all-time greats, if not the greatest, at a pivotal point, it is the best feeling of my life.”
