Stampeders hold off Ticats in defensive struggle

Stampeders hold off Ticats in defensive struggle

It wasn't a pretty win, but the Calgary Stampeders will take it.Rene Parades kicked the game-winning field goal in the fourth quarter before the Calgary defence came up big to preserve the victory on Friday as the Stampeders hung on to edge the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 10-7."A win is a win," said veteran Calgary defender Brandon Smith, who combined with Micah Johnson to make the game-saving play late in the final frame. "As a defence, as long as we can limit the offence from scoring, that's an accomplishment in its own. As you see, we stopped them from getting in the end zone and we won 10-7. We don't care exactly how we win. We just care about the win. That's the most important thing."The Ticats had a chance to tie the game, but kicker Justin Medlock was unable to kick a 29-yard field goal due to a botched snap. Quarterback Dan LeFevour, who was the holder on the play, tried to run the ball instead, but was flattened by a big hit from Smith much to the delight of the 27,546 fans in attendance at McMahon Stadium."Micah, if anything, was there first," said Smith. "I did my part. Micah caused it. I had the opportunity to step up and make a good hit. I just seized the opportunity."Brad Sinopoli scored his first-career CFL touchdown on a 26-yard run in the second quarter, while Paredes atoned for an earlier miss by kicking a 39-yard field goal, which stood up as the game-winning points. 'We don't care exactly how we win. We just care about the win. That's the most important thing.'- Calgary defender Brandon Smith A week after throwing four touchdown passes in Calgary's 34-15 road win over the Toronto Argonauts, quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell failed to find the end zone against Hamilton. Mitchell still completed 19-of-34 passes for 196 yards as the Stamps improved to 3-0."At some point we found some holes in the defence, got some first downs, got the field goal when we needed it and obviously a huge play by Sinopoli and then just a great play by the defence at the end of the game," Sinopoli said. "The defence, they stepped up at every single play when they had to. That was the biggest thing for us was watching those guys have our backs time and time again when we weren't at our best."Medlock kicked a pair of field goal and added a single to account for all of Hamilton's points.Jeremiah Masoli made his first career CFL start at quarterback for Hamilton (0-3) and completed just nine-of-19 passes for 107 yards and an interception before being replaced by LeFevour in the third quarter. LeFevour completed nine-of-11 passes for 76 yards in a relief appearance."We've just got to keep fighting," LeFevour said. "It's early in the season - three games in. There's a lot of time left. You've got to credit Calgary for playing well, but at the same time we've got to execute better."Neither team could get anything going in the first quarter as the Stamps accounted for just 44 yards in offence, while the Ticats managed only 22 yards.Medlock accounted for all the scoring in the first quarter as he booted a 91-yard single on the opening kickoff before adding a 42-yard field goal with 2:05 left to play in the opening frame.Mitchell then engineered an 11-play, 85-yard drive in the second quarter that was capped off by a 26-yard touchdown run by Sinopoli on a broken play. Mitchell handed the ball off to Sinopoli, who sidestepped onrushing Hamilton linebacker Taylor Reed before running the rest of the way into the end zone untouched.Winning cause"We got a couple blocks down field and I just tried to make a move and fortunately it turned into a touchdown," said Sinopoli, who was happy to contribute in a winning cause. "It wasn't how we imagined how it would go, but we'll take the win. We're going to have games like that. It's a long season. That stuff's going to happen. All that matters at the end is the win."Calgary coach and general manager John Hufnagel called Sinopoli's touchdown fantastic."That was something special," Hufnagel said. "It was a play designed that he had a pass-run option, but he never had a chance to look at throwing the ball because he had instant pressure. He made a fantastic move to get away from the first tackler and then juked the second tackler and got himself in the end zone."On the next possession, the Ticats put themselves in a position to respond right back, but Calgary safety Joshua Bell picked off an errant pass by Masoli in the Calgary end zone to end the threat.The Stamps had a chance to extend their lead late in the first half, but a 48-yard field goal attempt by Rene Paredes sailed wide right.Hamilton had a great chance to take the lead in the third quarter when Brandon Banks returned a Rob Maver punt 38 yards to the Calgary 17-yard line. The Ticats then took and offside penalty before Masoli overthrew a pair of receivers in the end zone, prompting Medlock to kick a 30-yard field goal to tie the game at 7-7.On Calgary's next drive, Mitchell fumbled the ball at midfield for his first turnover of the season. Linebacker Frederic Plesius recovered the ball at the Hamilton 54-yard line, but the Ticats were unable to convert the turnover into points as Medlock missed a 45-yard field goal attempt wide right at the outset of the fourth quarter.The Stamps took a 10-7 lead at 8:16 of the fourth quarter when Parades connected from 39 yards out to round out the scoring.

The next Captain America is black, says Marvel Comics

The next Captain America is black, says Marvel Comics

A black character will soon strap on the star-emblazoned shield and step into the red, white and blue uniform of Captain America in the pages of Marvel Comics.The character of Captain America first appeared in 1941, as a super soldier fighting the Nazis. He was revived by Marvel in the 1960s and became an icon among Marvel's lineup of heroes.Superhero shakeups: Check out a photo gallery of re-imagined classic characters above Black Captain America sparks race debate The change in characters was announced on the publisher's official website on Wednesday. It is built around the retirement of Captain America's original alter ego, Steve Rogers, who finds he has lost the extraordinary strength and agility he had once gained from injections of performance-enhancing "super soldier serum."The Goddess of Thunder: Marvel Comics unveils new female Thor​ CBC's comic book expert Eli Glasner reacts to Marvel's newest character Rogers will hand the Captain America persona to his much younger friend and cohort, the character Sam Wilson, already a comic book star in his own right as the true identity behind the winged superhero known as Falcon.A three-page explanation of the transformation was posted under the headline: "It's time for an all-new Captain America."Cover of the new Thor by Marvel Comics featuring a the God of Thunder as a female. (Russell Dauterman/Marvel Comics)It was authored by Marvel writer-artist Rick Remender and editor Tom Brevoort, part of the creative team involved in the publisher's re-launch of several of its popular heroes.The Captain America update also was unveiled by Marvel Comics' chief creative officer, Joe Quesada, during a Wednesday night TV appearance on Comedy Central's The Colbert Report.It came one day after Marvel's announcement that another founding member of its Avengers superhero team, the hammer-wielding Norse god Thor, would be reintroduced as a woman.For now, the changes in both characters - Thor and Captain America - will be limited to the pages of Marvel comic books. Chris Hemsworth will continue to play a male Thor, and Chris Evans a white Captain America, in Marvel's feature films.When Sam Wilson suits up as Captain America this fall, the character will undergo more than a mere racial transformation.Wilson will don a modified version of the familiar Captain America costume and keep Cap's trademark circular shield, according to Remender and Brevoort. But he will retain a key vestige of his old Falcon persona - retractable wings that give him the power of flight.As for the old Cap, Steve Rogers will stick around to serve as a strategic advisor to his successor, Marvel said.

Luiz Scolari resigns as Brazilian coach

Luiz Scolari resigns as Brazilian coach

Luiz Felipe Scolari has resigned as Brazil's head coach after the team's failure to win the World Cup, the Brazilian Football Confederation said Monday.Scolari had promised to win the tournament at home, but Brazil was eliminated in the semifinals after a disastrous 7-1 loss to Germany in the national team's worst defeat in its 100-year history. Brazil also fell 3-0 to the Netherlands in the third-place match.Scolari's contract ended after the World Cup and he handed over the command of the team after Saturday's match, saying that it would be up to the confederation to decide whether he would remain at the helm of the five-time world champions.In a statement, the confederation said that president Jose Maria Marin accepted what it called "Scolari's resignation.""Scolari and his staff deserve our respect and our gratitude," the statement said. "They were responsible for making the Brazilian people regain their love for the Selecao even though we did not reach our greater goal of winning the title."Assistant Parreira also departsScolari's replacement was not immediately announced. Assistant Carlos Alberto Parreira, the coach who led Brazil to the 1994 World Cup title, was also leaving.The confederation said Marin would give further explanations in a news conference on Thursday.Scolari, who led Brazil to the 2002 World Cup title, had said after Brazil's loss to the Netherlands that he would turn in a report of his work with the national team and Marin would then analyze what he would like to do.Scolari publicly apologized to fans after the loss to Germany, saying he knows it will never be forgotten, and defended his work with Brazil since returning in late 2012. In 29 matches, he led the nation to 19 wins, six draws and four losses. Brazil won last year's Confederations Cup, the World Cup warm-up tournament, under his command."I don't think you can analyze the entire work based on only one disastrous result," Scolari said after Brazil's loss to the Dutch. "I think the job was well done."The once-popular coach was loudly booed by fans after Brazil ended the home tournament on Saturday. Despite high expectations, Brazil struggled throughout the competition, finishing with three wins, two draws and two losses.Scolari had been betting on young striker Neymar to carry the team to the title, but the player was ruled out of the tournament because of a back injury sustained in the quarterfinals.Scolari was picked to lead the 2014 team mostly because of his popularity and experience from the 2002 title, but many critics said he was outdated as a coach. Before rejoining the national team, Scolari was coming off relegation in the Brazilian league with traditional club Palmeiras.Among those touted to replace Scolari are Tite and Muricy Ramalho, who have been successful with local clubs in recent years. Ramalho is a four-time Brazilian champion, while Tite led popular Corinthians to the Club World Cup title in 2012. There is also talk in local media about international coaches, including Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, and Chile's Argentine coach Jorge Sampaoli.Brazil's next official tournament is the 2015 Copa America. The team is expected to play four friendlies this year, the first one against Colombia on Sept. 5 in Miami. It will also play Ecuador on Sept. 8 in New York, Argentina on Oct. 11 in Beijing and Turkey on Nov. 12 in Istanbul.
