SAINT JOHN, N.B. -- Rachel Homan still hadnt thrown a final stone for a win at world womens curling championship Tuesday. At both the Canadian championships, where her team went unbeaten in 13 games, and at this weeks Ford World Womens Curling Championship, even seeing her Canadian team in a 10th end has been akin to spying an exotic animal in the wild. With their ability to keep the front of the house clear and throw heavy weight shots with accuracy, the Ottawa Curling Club team has been virtually uncatchable when theyve taken a lead. Their reward is opposing teams conceding before the 10th end, with the exception so far in Saint John a loss to Switzerland on Sunday. Conversely, it was the Canadians shaking hands after eight ends in the face of a four-point deficit. But Homan went through the Scotties Tournament of Hearts and the first seven games of the world championship without making a game-winning throw in the 10th. Down 8-3 to Canada, Scotlands Kerry Barr shook hands after nine ends Tuesday night. The Latvians also conceded after nine ends when they trailed the Canadians 8-4 in the morning draw. Canada capped the two-win day tied for first in the preliminary-round standings at 6-1 with Swedens Margaretha Sigfridsson and Switzerlands Binia Feltscher. "We played well, two solid games by our team," Homan said. "Were not playing 100 per cent, but were reading the lines and learning the lines when we need to." Russias Anna Sidorova, South Koreas Ji-sun Kim and Chinas Liu Sijia were tied at 5-2. The Scots dropped to 2-5. Allison Pottinger of the United States was 3-4. Germanys Imogen Oona Lehmann, Denmarks Madeleine Dupont, Latvias Evita Regza and Anna Kubeskova of the Czech Republic were all 1-6. The top four teams at the conclusion of the round robin Thursday make the playoffs. Canada faces Germany and South Korea on Wednesday. The only 10th end Homan, vice Emma Miskew, second Alison Kreviazuk and lead Lisa Weagle played in their first four days in Saint John was their opener against Russia. Again, Homan didnt throw her final stone because Sidorova missed her last draw. Homan, 24, wasnt worried about being battle-ready for a possible playoff game later in the week. "Ive had a lot of white-knuckle games in my life. Id be OK not throwing my last shot for the rest of the tournament," Homan said. "If it comes down to it, Im ready for it. Ive done it before. Ive thrown some big shots this week already. Whatever happens, if we keep playing strong, Im good with what were doing." Weagle is adept at shifting guards away from the front of the house, but not removing them which is not allowed until the fifth rock of the end is thrown. Homan and Miskew are heavy hitters. A Miskew runback double against the Scots completely swung momentum back to Canada. Those skills make Canada ruthlessly efficient when they have the hammer, in both scoring more than one point in an end and avoiding steals by the opposition. Canada scored two on Scotland in the first and third ends with hammer to lead 5-2 at the fifth-end break. They stole a point in the eighth and again in the ninth when the Scots called it a day. "What we do so well when they have last rock is theyre able to take risks, but because were as good a team as there is on the planet for being able to make runbacks and throw heavy weight accurately, we can get out of jail fairly easily if things dont go well," Canadian coach Earle Morris said. "And we tick (guards). Those are two weapons we have that not all the other teams have." Reigning world champion and Olympic bronze medallist Eve Muirhead didnt participate in Scottish womens playdowns to prepare for the Winter Olympic in Sochi last month. Her former junior teammate Kerry Barr is skipping the Scots in Saint John. They werent able to generate a deuce with hammer early against Canada. "Theyre never going to be a team thats easy to come back against when you go a couple of shots down, but I think we did a good job of making them play some tricky shots," Barr said. "Im not too disheartened. "We knew we were going to have to get a two earlier on in the game, but we just werent able to create anything and Rachel and Emma came up with some real good shots." Miskew outcurled Scottish counterpart Rachel Simms 86 per cent to 56 per cent, but one of her throws had the Canadian skip and third dissolving into a fit of laughter. "I threw one shot out there that I wasnt really all that close to the broom on my slide out, which isnt normal," Miskew explained. "Rachel was laughing. She thought it was pretty funny. "Were trying to keep it loose and relaxed." Nike Air Max 1 Dames Sale . Goran Dragic added 20 points, 15 in the first half, and Markieff Morris scored 16 for the Suns. Rodney Stuckey scored 23 and Andre Drummond had 13 points and 16 rebounds for the Pistons in their fourth overall loss and 12th straight on the road. Nike Air Huarache Snakeskin . The Vikings picked up one more victory at the soon-to-be-demolished stadium, perhaps a parting gift for the popular coach. Fittingly, the Detroit Lions left on the losing end. http://www.bestellenairmax1-nl.com/nike-air-max-1/nike-air-max-1-dames.html . Cheers filled the arena for most of the game as fans rooted for their Jets, but also for Ducks forward Teemu Selanne, who made his much-anticipated return to Winnipeg. Nike Air Max 1 Dames wit .

Homan and her Team Canada (1-0) rink from Ottawa scored four in the eighth end for an 8-3 victory over Manitobas Chelsea Carey (0-1) on Saturday night at the Maurice Richard Arena.AUSTIN, Texas - When Formula One was last in the United States, Sebastian Vettel had already earned his fourth consecutive world championship in a season of domination not seen since Michael Schumachers days at Ferrari.Then came the engine change, from the screeching V8s to the sublime hybrid turbo V6.The effect was a demolition of an F1 dynasty built by Vettels Red Bull team in a move that most thought would produce a wide-open title chase in 2014.Instead, F1 simply exchanged one dominant team for another. Mercedes has crushed the competition with teammates Lewis Hamilton leading Nico Rosberg by just 17 points in the title chase heading into this weeks U.S. Grand Prix.Red Bulls Daniel Ricciardo sits a distant third in the drivers championship with only three races left. Mercedes has already won the constructors title.Success in Formula One does not come easily and we are determined to ensure that our performance this year is not a one-off but the first of many, said Toto Wolff, head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport.Vettels 2013 was a performance for the ages. The baby-faced German tied Schumachers record of 13 victories in 2004, including the last nine of the year. And when he spun circles on the track after his win in Austin, his message to his team was to savour the moment. Even he seemed to know it would all soon end.Mercedes happily filled the void.Rosberg won the season-opener in Australia before Hamilton ripped off four wins in a row. Rosberg regained the lead in the title chase until Hamilton surged ahead again by winning the last four races heading into this weekend. Tension between the teammates and old friends has been simmering for months and another Hamilton victory could further put the squeeze on Rosberg.Its still all to play for in the battle for the drivers championship and I wont be giving up the fight, Rosberg said.Hamilton has a previous victory at the Circuit of the Americas in 2012, when he passed Vettel late to steal the win, forcing Vettel to wait until the final race that season to win the championship.Every point Hamilton can put between himself and Rosberg this week would be precious.dddddddddddd Rules changes in place for this season will award double points for the final race in Abu Dhabi on Nov. 23.The reliability of his car is as big of a concern for Hamilton as Rosbergs driving. Car problems have forced Hamilton to retire early three times this season, twice for Rosberg.But the guys have worked very hard to eradicate those through the year, so I hope that we can all go through these next races together as a team, without any of those issues, Hamilton said.Hamilton said he didnt want to even consider a crash or reliability problem that could cost him the title.Im not even going to put that negative energy out there, Hamilton said.Vettel would like to find even a spark of good energy this weekend. Its been a long time since he had any.His troubles started with a disastrous round of preseason testing that raised alarms about Red Bulls grasp on the new engine technology. An early run of bad form behind Mercedes dominance quickly killed any hopes of contending for another title.This year had quite a bad start in terms of reliability, which put us in a bad position, Vettel said.Vettel has no victories this season and just four podium finishes. And hes considering not even driving in qualifying Saturday because a change to a sixth engine this season will force him to start from pit lane, regardless of how fast he goes.His Red Bull run is almost over. Vettel has already announced hes leaving the team after this season but hasnt said where hell drive in 2015.Im looking forward the race, and to enjoy those last races Ive had with the team. Weve experienced a lot over the last few years, Vettel said.The U.S. Grand Prix will have just 18 cars on the grid, the smallest F1 race in nine years. Two teams, Marussia and Caterham, have been sidelined with financial problems and wont race this week.That prompted the FIA, the sports governing body, to call Thursday for any initiative that will help reduce costs to ensure the survival of the existing grid and attract potential new entrants. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
