Wilson’s late heroics lift Seahawks over Packers

After a shaky beginning, Russell Wilson got hot in the fourth quarter, Bobby Wagner and Seattle’s defense stymied Aaron Rodgers and the Seahawks stayed in the middle of the NFC playoff race. “We’ve been through so much throughout this season it was time to get over the hump,” Wagner said. “We’ve been down, we’ve been up, we’ve lost close games, we’ve won close games. It was time.” Wilson threw for 225 yards and his 15-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson with 5:08 left was the difference in the Seahawks’ 27-24 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night.

Red Sox’s Mookie Betts caps off winning year with MVP award

Mookie Betts is ready to become an ambassador for baseball, now that he’s won a batting title, World Series and Most Valuable Player award with Boston. “I enjoy being kind of a face around the game. I’ve kind of used this pedestal or whatever you want to say to spread knowledge that the game is fun,” he said Thursday after his runaway victory for the AL MVP award. Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich was close to a unanimous pick for the NL honour. A 26-year-old outfielder just like Betts, Yelich also won a batting championship and led his team to a division

Matt Wallace FINED £3,000 for slow play despite back-to-back Dubai birdies

This season’s triple Tour winning Wallace was adjudged to have taken too long to putt out for par on the ninth hole and this after bizarrely being timed in birdying both the seventh and eighth holes on the Earth Course. The Tour’s Chief Referee, Andy McFee, was waiting for Wallace as he headed to the scorer’s hut having ended his round by also birding four of his closing five holes. His round of 68 saw him share fifth place in the closing Rolex Series event. Wallace had been advised by McFee he was ‘on the clock’ during the time he

Whitecaps’ Davies and Kamara team up to take out Fire

Vancouver’s teen soccer sensation showed Saturday why he’s an MLS all-star.

Midfielder Alphonso Davies was all over the field in the Whitecaps’ 3-2 win against the Chicago Fire, creating numerous chances and notching an assist at B.C. Place.

Meanwhile, Kei Kamara scored two goals as Vancouver improved to 7-7-5, good for sixth in the Western Conference.

Chicago dropped to 6-8-5.

The 17-year-old Davies was foiled by the posts multiple times, including on a breakaway in the 30th minute where he bounced a shot off the iron, then shook his head in disbelief.

Davies will play in the MLS all-star game against Italian champion Juventus on Aug. 1 in Atlanta.

Whitecaps coach Carl Robinson had wanted his team to focus on turning opportunities into goals Saturday. He felt the Whitecaps had dominated the Colorado Rapids on Canada Day, but lost the match 1-0 on an own goal.

He also asked some of his top scorers to step up and Kamara responded.

A battle in front of Chicago’s net in the 28th minute saw Fire goalkeeper Richard Sanchez stop a shot from Vancouver midfielder Yordy Reyna. But the rebound bounced to Kamara, who rocketed the ball into the back of the net to open the scoring.

Davies joined him for a synchronized dance to celebrate.

The pair teamed up again in the 71st minute, where Davies blasted past Chicago’s defenders and lobbed a shot at Sanchez. The rebound went straight to Kamara, who tapped it in for his second goal of the night.

Defender Marcel de Jong was credited with a second assist.

Kamara’s second goal was his team-leading eighth of the season. Cristian Techera, who has six, was sitting out Saturday’s game with a suspension.

Vancouver’s other goal came in the 46th minute, when midfielder Jordon Mutch waltzed past Sanchez at the top of the box and slowed the ball down before tapping it into the net for his first MLS goal. Efrain Juarez got the assist.

Chicago’s first goal came in the 42nd minute, after Vancouver midfielder Felipe Martins was beaten down low, allowing the Fire’s Kevin Ellis to get a pass off to forward Nemanja Nikolic, who beat Whitecaps keeper Brian Rowe. It was Nikolic’s eighth goal of the season.

Fire midfielder Tony Tchani drilled one past Rowe in the 81st minute to bring his team within one. Chicago applied major pressure in the dying minutes, but could not net the equalizer.

The loss snapped Chicago’s five-game unbeaten streak.
