COMMERCE CITY, Colo. Chad Moeller Jersey . -- Chicagos Juan Luis Anangono pushed a header wide in the 76th minute and the Fire settled for a 0-0 tie with the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday night. Anangono broke free of Colorado defender Shane ONeill and goalkeeper John Berner couldnt recover in time to defend his goal. But with a wide open net. Anangonos header went just outside the left post. "I thought it was a scrappy game, Chicago coach Frank Yallop said. "We had a great chance with Juan. All in all really happy with the point." Chicago (2-3-8) had its MLS-leading eighth tie. Dillon Serna hit the crossbar in the final seconds of added time for Colorado (6-4-4). "Id like three points. Id like $100 million. Id like a lot of things," Colorado coach Pablo Mastroeni said. "The most important thing from this is the effort we had and the attitude." The Rapids had their two-game winning streak snapped. They have three scoreless ties. "We had a couple of good chances, and one very good chance in the first half," Colorado defenceman Drew Moor said. "Other than that I didnt think we had that killer instinct. We didnt score." Silvino Bracho Jersey . Arsene Wenger reportedly wants to convert the player into an attacking force, much like he did with Robin Van Persie. Jimmie Sherfy Jersey . -- Two out of three aint bad. https://www.cheapdiamondbacksjerseys.us/678l-matt-mantei-jersey-diamondbacks.html . -- Justin Verlander took a no-hit bid into the sixth inning and won his fourth straight decision, leading Detroit over the Kansas City Royals 9-4 Sunday and extending the Tigers winning streak to a season-high five games.REGINA -- Tino Sunseri turned the boos he heard at halftime into a standing ovation at the end of the game. In just his second start in the CFL, the second-year quarterback rallied the Saskatchewan Roughriders to a thrilling 35-32 victory in overtime over the Ottawa Redblacks at a sold-out Mosaic Stadium on Sunday. Sunseri engineered a last-minute touchdown drive that tied the game at 32-32 and then set up the winning field goal by Chris Milo in overtime. "I never saw doubt in his eyes," Riders head coach Corey Chamblin said of his quarterback. Milos game-winning kick in overtime was a 22-yard boot and it was his second opportunity to win the game. On the Riders first overtime possession, he had to deal with a bad snap and his 37-yard attempt sailed wide. Redblacks kicker Kicker Brett Maher had his game-tying, 37-yard field goal attempt blocked. "We came in here at halftime and looked each other in the eye and said, Shoot, thats not how we wanted the first half to go," Sunseri said. "But we had 30 more minutes to put our statement on this game." The Riders mustered just 26 yards passing in the first half and were booed off the field as they trailed 22-10 at halftime. In his first start a week ago in Hamilton, Sunseri struggled mightily. He managed just nine completions and 88 yards on 22 pass attempts in a 28-3 loss to the Tiger-Cats. But Sunseri found a groove in the second half on Sunday. On his teams first possession of the third quarter, Sunseri hooked up with Will Ford on a 23-yard touchdown strike. Sunseris second touchdown toss of the second half came early in the fourth quarter and stirred talk of a possible comeback by the home team. A 60-yard passing play to Weston Dressler pulled the Riders to within five at 29-24. After a late field goal from Maher that pushed the Ottawa lead to 32-24, Sunseris stage was set for a thrilling, last-minute scoring drive. Sunseri completed passes to Dressler, Brett Swain and Chris Getzlaf before a pass interference penalty moved the Riders to the Ottawa one-yard line with 54 seconds remaining in regulation. One play later, running back Anthony Alllen plunged ahead for a one-yard touchdown run to pull the Riders to within two at 32-30. Eduardo Escobar Jersey. Dressler caught the two-point convert to pull the Riders even. "Whatever game you put us in, were going to keep fighting," Riders defensive lineman Tearrius George said after his team improved to 9-3. "Thats why I love playing with these guys. "And its a big thing for (Sunseri), especially after that first week. Everybody had worries, but we see him play every day and Im glad he had a big game. Some starting quarterbacks wouldnt have been able to do what he did today, pulling out the win late like he did." Serenaded by the fans with chants of "Hen-ry, Hen-ry," former Roughriders quarterback Henry Burris was a one-man offensive show for the Redblacks. Burris was 23-for-38 passing for 282 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed for 22 yards and a touchdown. The 32 points scored was a season-high for the Redblacks. Their previous high came in Week 2 in a 36-28 loss to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. But Burris effort on this day was overshadowed by that of Sunseris. "It stings because we had this game won," Burris said, after his team fell to 1-10 on the season. "We took it down to the wire and we just have to be a better team in the fourth quarter and be able to finish things off. That comes with learning how to win games." Wallace Miles caught two touchdowns for Ottawa as the team built a commanding 22-10 lead in the first half. Jeremiah Johnson also caught a touchdown pass from Burris, which restored a 12-point advantage at 29-17 midway through the third quarter. Dressler had two touchdowns on the day, both of the big-play variety. His 78-yard punt return for a major was his second touchdown of the season on special teams. His 60-yard catch and run saw him break four tackles along the sideline before he raced into the end zone. The veteran slotback finished the day with seven receptions for 125 yards. The Riders will travel to Edmonton on Friday to take on the Eskimos. Meanwhile, the Redblacks will play host to the Montreal Alouettes later this week. ' ' '
