Canada kept their undefeated streak going by beating Great Britain 9-6 in womens curling to push their record to 3-0 at the Sochi Olympics on Wednesday. Bob Lilly Jersey . Canada, led by Jennifer Jones, faced their first real test coming off dominant wins over 9-2 over China and 9-3 over Sweden on Monday and Tuesday respectively. Eve Muirhead, the 23-year old skip who led Scotland to a 2013 World Championship, followed through with expectations to lead Great Britain to a strong challenge against Canada. The two skips battled fiercely right into the final end. The skips battled hard where Jones tossed 85% and Muirhead went for 83%. There was very little separation between the opponents early in the match and that was the continued trend throughout. Up 8-6 going into the final end, Canada looked to be into as Great Britain was looking at scoring a double until Jones got a clutch take out, leaving just one stone near the button. Muirhead had the hammer with :30 remaining, but the result of her triple take out attempt went awry, resulting in a steal of one for Canada. The biggest Canadian highlight was the moment right before the conclusion of the fifth end where Muirheads final stone sat just short of the rings to play guard for a potential steal of two.But Jones stuck back, shooting a major take out which earned three points to bring it to 6-3 lead for Canada. Britain pulled it closed after six ends, bringing it to 6-5, but Jones was able to to keep distance securing a single in the seventh end to stay up by two. Muirhread came out of a tough eighth end, finishing with two of the four stones in the house but only could muster one point. Canada continues in the round robin on Thursday as they take on Switzerland. Brice Butler Jersey .C. -- The Bobcats announced theyve signed centre Justin Hamilton to a 10-day contract. Geoff Swaim Jersey . -- Former NHL star Jeremy Roenick shot a second-round 69 to take the lead after 36 holes and former LPGA great Annika Sorenstam and Chad Pfeifer, who lost his left leg above the knee serving in Iraq, are among several players in contention in the American Century Championship tournament on Saturday. http://www.thecowboysfansmall.com/c-11-cowboys-michael-irvin-jersey.aspx . Burkes Flames are one of several teams involved in heavy trade speculation going into next Wednesdays 3pm et deadline, with the most prominent name in play being forward Michael Cammalleri.GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Packers losing streak without Aaron Rodgers is over, though the frustration continues in Titletown. A tie did little to lift spirits in chilly Green Bay. Backup quarterback Matt Flynn threw for 218 yards and helped spark a rally from a 16-point deficit early in the fourth quarter to the Minnesota Vikings. But the teams could only muster field goals in overtime and had to settle for a 26-26 draw Sunday. "Its an empty feeling. You go out there and didnt lose the game," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "But you feel like you didnt accomplish what you set out to do." Same sentiment in the Vikings locker room, where one player held tightly to a hot cup of coffee to warm up following a game that started with temperatures in the upper teens. "I view it as a loss, personally. We gave up a 16-point lead in the fourth quarter," defensive end Jared Allen said. "I dont have a sister, but Im going to say its like going to prom with your sister." For a while, the match was full of heart-racing drama. Mason Crosby hit from 20 yards at 10:28 of the extra period and Blair Walsh connected from 35 with 3:54 left. Greg Jennings, playing his first game at Lambeau Field as a member of the Vikings (3-8-1), dropped a third-down pass with 2:11 left. The Packers (5-5-1) also stumbled on their next possession. One last chance for the Vikings went nowhere with 1 second left, and the teams walked off with the first tie in the NFL since the Rams and 49ers ended 24-24 on Nov. 11, 2012. At least the 77,000-plus frigid fans got to witness a bit of history -- this was first game to end in a tie under the new overtime rule instituted last year that continues the extra period if both teams open it with field goals. A touchdown by either team would have ended the game. Jacksonville and Houston both kicked field goals to open OT in a game on Nov. 18, 2012, then the Texans won it with a touchdown. "I think to everybody around here, it feels like a loss, for sure," Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk said. The Packers are also in unfamiliar territory with so much instability at quarterback. Its been that way since Rodgers -- perhaps the most irreplaceable player in the NFL -- hurt his left collarbone on the first series of a 27-20 loss to the Bears on Nov. 4 that started the winless string. Flynn, Rodgers former backup who was re-signed last week, replaced the ineffective Scott Tolzien and finishhed 21 of 36 for 218 yards and a touchdown. Anthony Hitchens Jersey. He nearly led Green Bay back from a 23-7 deficit early in the fourth quarter to a win. Flynn caught a break in overtime after a third-down sack was called off by a holding penalty on Vikings safety Robert Blanton. He followed with three long completions, including a 34-yarder to the leaping Jarrett Boykin to the 7. Two runs by Eddie Lacy (110 yards on 25 carries) got the Packers to the 2, but Flynn misfired on third down to set up Crosbys kick. Adrian Peterson had 146 yards and a score on 32 carries. He and Toby Gerhart (91 yards on eight carries) dented the Packers worn defence in overtime, but could not get in the end zone. The Vikings settled for Walshs kick. That was it for the scoring. The fans bundled up in parkas and knit caps to brave temperatures in the upper teens had to settle for a draw. Some positives for the Packers: a maligned defence stopped two late fourth-quarter drives; Lacys running; Flynns play in relief. And the tie being less damaging than a loss would have been in the division race. "Looking at the guys eyes in the huddle, I dont think there was any doubt," Flynn said. "Im proud of the guys for fighting, but we just have to finish." Things looked bleak for them early in the fourth quarter after Walshs 29-yard field gave Minnesota 23-7 lead. Up to that point, Christian Ponder was the best quarterback on the field. He connected with Rhett Ellison for a 12-yard touchdown pass that helped give the Vikings build a 16 point lead. Ponder finished 21 of 30 for 233 yards. Maybe the quarterback carousel has finally come to a halt in Minnesota, though afterward Ponder was focused on a missed opportunity. "We let it get out of our hands," he said. "Its unfortunate were not walking away with our third victory." Notes: Jennings was booed heartily by Packers fans after the first of his two catches, totalling 29 yards. ... Audie Cole finished with 13 tackles and a sack starting for leading tackler and MLB Erin Henderson, who missed the game for a personal matter. ... CB Sam Shields missed a second straight game for the Packers with a hamstring injury. ... Tolzien finished 7 of 17 for 98 yards, but had an entertaining 6-yard touchdown run in the first quarter after putting a spin move on a defender before stumbling into the end zone. ... The only other tie between the teams was a 10-10 draw on Nov. 26, 1978.
