FRISCO, Texas -- Dan Kennedy earned his first shutout of the season helping Chivas USA to a scoreless draw with FC Dallas on Thu Antworten

FRISCO, Texas -- Dan Kennedy earned his first shutout of the season helping Chivas USA to a scoreless draw with FC Dallas on Thursday night. Bruce Smith Jersey . Chivas (3-10-4) got its second straight draw while extended its winless streak to 12 in the opener of a three-game road trip. "I think they are starting to play more as a team and less as individuals," Chivas coach Jose Luis Real said through a translator. Real took over at the end of May for Jose Luis Sanchez Sola. Although he is still searching for his first win as Chivas coachr, the team is showing improvement, The Goats tend to show up more against Dallas than against other opponents, and Thursday night was no different. Dallas has not defeated Chivas in six straight matches. "I dont know what it is," Real said. "I think its motivation. Obviously the players come in the game with the motivation (to take down a top team)." Dallas (8-3-7) is winless in its last five matches and sits two points behind Real Salt Lake atop the Western Conference. There were plenty of chances for both teams, though neither could take advantage. Chivas outshot Dallas 17-6, holding a 6-1 advantage on shots on goal. "I think were trying to get in the right path," Chivas midfielder Jorge Villafana said. "The thing is looking better each game. Last game we had the opportunity to get three points, we let ourselves tie it, and this time I think we did a good job coming here and getting a point in a difficult place (against) a good team." Dallas sent its first 10 shots off target, missing the goal by inches on several occasions. Chivas kept rifling shots that were blocked by Dallas defenders, including four shots in one sequence in the 54th minute. Jackson nearly put Dallas on the board in the 85th minute when he headed a cross just wide of the post. One minute later, Kennedy made a toe save on Blas Perezs header. Both teams squandered stoppage-time free-kick opportunities to saddle them with a point each. Dallas had three strong scoring opportunities in the opening 10 minutes of the game, including a strong showing on early set pieces. Defender Stephen Keel, making his first start for Dallas, just missed a header six minutes in on a corner, which would have been the 30-year-olds first career MLS goal. Four minutes later, Michels left-footed free kick from about 30 yards didnt quite curl back far enough, caroming off the far post. From there, Chivas backline tightened in the middle as the visitors starting pressing up and limiting the Dallas chances to ones created on the wings. "The beginning of the first half, we were playing really well and we kind of faded in the middle of the game," Dallas defender Matt Hedges said, "and we were giving the ball away, I think, too much and not keeping enough possession. It started to be kind of a track meet back and forth." Chivas found its footing in the final 15 minutes of the first half. Eric Avila, who played for Dallas from 2008-11, had a ground shot from about 25 yards stopped by a diving Raul Fernandez in the 30th minute. Avilas attempt triggered a string of shots to end the half, including Jose Correas about-face shot from six yards out that just went wide when he found the ball off a neat back heel from Walter Vilchez following a corner.

Burris threw for 247 yards in one half of a game -- on pace for a nearly 500-yard outing -- as the Redblacks downed the woeful Montreal Alouettes 26-10 in CFL pre-season play Friday night at Percival Molson Stadium. Josh Allen Womens Jersey . The young man, never lacking confidence, thought he could be really good. . Andrew Luck couldnt believe his ears. Colts fans couldnt believe the scoreboard, and the Kansas City Chiefs couldnt believe their incredibly bad luck.WINDEMERE, Fla. - Tiger Woods appears to be on the road to recovery again, only its no longer a question of how soon before he reaches full speed.There are a lot more cars on the road now.Faster ones, too.Woods acknowledged as much before the Hero World Challenge began when he jokingly said, Father Time remains undefeated.He still has plenty of power when hes healthy and swings freely. But theres a long list of players who hit it farther.We all eventually are losing some of the things we are able to do when we were younger, Woods said. But theres other ways to go around a golf course. ... You can win at a very late age because you dont have to physically dominate anybody. You dont have to physically beat anybody. You just have to beat the golf course.Thats a recipe for winning, but not for being the best in the sport.That label belongs to 25-year-old Rory McIlroy, an undisputed title at the moment. The most consistent threat in the majors this year was 25-year-old Rickie Fowler, who played in the final group twice and finished in the top five in all of them.The latest arrival is 21-year-old Jordan Spieth, who showed off his potential not because of the fields he beat (strength or size) but because of the stamps in his passport. In three weeks in three corners of the world, Spieth finished one shot out of a playoff in Japan, won by six shots in the Australian Open against a field that included McIlroy and Adam Scott, and then overwhelmed an 18-man field of top-50 players in Florida with a 10-shot victory.One of the more telling comments after he won at Isleworth was how Spieth defined his target.In order to take it to the next level and try and win majors, Ive got to look to Rory, Spieth said. Hes the youngest guy, the one with the most success. Hes No. 1 in the world and setting the bar. Hes the one were all chasing.Woods is now part of the chase.He did not say where he would start in 2015, but heres a sobering thought: If Woods does not play better than he did at Isleworth, theres a mathematical chance hell fall out of the top 50 by March and not be eligible for the first World Golf Championship at Dorral. Thurman Thomas Bills Jersey. This isnt the first time Woods has returned from an injury-induced layoff. But its the first time he is coming back from injury and retooling his swing under a new coach. This could take time, and thats something Woods doesnt have at this stage in his career. He turns 39 at the end of the month.Can he get back to where he was? Probably not.Can he get back to No. 1 in the world? Certainly. The last time he was in this position, it took five victories for Woods to climb back to No. 1, along with a mini-slump by McIlroy. Both are capable of doing that again.Woods is so popular as a golfer, and he demands so much attention, that its easy to fall into a trap of measuring his progress without considering the rest of the field.When he opened with a 77 at Isleworth, it was easy to blame that on rust because he had not faced any competition since the PGA Championship. Except that Steve Stricker had not played since the PGA and he opened with a 67.Woods made progress in the second round. He was attacking. He was making birdies. He was 4 under through 16 holes, which ordinarily would seem like a good score. Except that the guy playing alongside him, Patrick Reed, was 9 under through 16 holes.The competition has never been deeper — and as it relates to Woods, younger.He is responsible for that. Most of these rising stars, if not all, grew up watching Woods destroy his competition. They learned by watching him. It was different for an older generation of players who only saw Woods when he arrived on the PGA Tour, and then didnt know what hit them.He was the best anyone had seen, Reed said. He was so much better than anyone else at the time. With me growing up and watching that, I tried to copy his mental strength and go from there.And how does one copy mental strength?Be stubborn, Reed said. Focus on what youre doing and not anyone around you. You could see it just by looking at him in the eyes. If looks could kill, he would literally kill you. Its not because hes not a good guy. He was just so focused and determined to play well. And he obviously gets it. Thats what Im trying to do. ' ' '
