HAMILTON, Ont. -- With Justin Medlock booting field goals from anywhere in the B.C. Lions half of the field, even stalled offensive drives by Hamilton Tiger-Cats were deadly. Medlock hit all seven of his field-goal attempts, at one point hitting four-straight over 40 yards, as the Tiger-Cats routed the Lions 42-10 in CFL action Saturday night and ended BC.s winning streak at eight games. "The offence did a great job today," Medlock said. "(The quarterbacks) all moved the ball well. Its good to finish it up and help the team out." Medlock hit from 19, 44, 42, 48, 47, 29 and 35 yards. Thats a CFL season-high and only the third time a Ticat kicker has hit seven field goals in a game in team history. Paul Osbaldiston had one game with seven field goals and another with eight field goals. "Its good to join that company and make all your kicks," he said, adding that it also matched a personal best, having hit seven in a game when he was in Toronto in 2009. "However you can get on the board, however you can get points, you take them," said Hamilton quarterback Kevin Glenn, who sat out the second half while back-up Quinton Porter took over. "Weve got a good field-goal kicker, so we put him in a position to kick field goals, which is great. I wish we would have had more touchdowns, but we came away with a victory." Porter came in late in the second quarter and rushed for one touchdown -- his league-leading ninth rushing TD -- and passed for another. The Ticats defence held B.C. scoreless in the second half. "I think we out hit them today," said Hamilton linebacker Renauld Williams. "We outran them. We were just faster than them." With B.C. losing, Edmonton now sits in sole possession of first place in the CFL West Division. The Lions (9-7) hadnt lost a game since August 13 when they were defeated by Winnipeg 30-17. Edmontons 31-24 win over Toronto on Friday meant B.C. needed a win over Hamilton in order to keep pace with the Eskimos atop the West Division standings. "They came out and they hit us in the mouth," said B.C. quarterback Travis Lulay, who completed 17 of 36 pass attempts for 218 yards and one TD. "They set the tone early and we couldnt counterpunch. They were the better football team today." B.C. plays Edmonton next week, so still has a chance to catch them for top spot. "Fortunately, we have them on our schedule," Lulay said. "This one will hurt for the night, but well get back to work and know that we can still make a run." The Ticats (8-8) ended a two-game losing streak, but have played their final game at Ivor Wynne stadium this season. Winnipegs 26-25 win over Montreal earlier Saturday means the Ticats will finish third in the East. Hamilton receiver Bakari Grant and linebacker Ray Mariuz also scored touchdowns while Lions receiver Geroy Simon scored for B.C. Lions kicker Paul McCallum hit his lone field-goal from 21 yards, and was intercepted when he tried to pass on a fake punt late in the game that led to Mariuzs TD. Simon became the leagues second-leading all-time receiver with his 25-yard TD catch, passing Allen Pitts but still behind Milt Stegall. He came in with 14,885 yards and finished the game with 42 more, for a total 14,927. Stegall has 15,153 yards. "Its just a sign of longevity and having a lot of success," said the 13-year veteran. "Ive been on very good teams for a number of years. Ive played with some great quarterbacks. Its an honour to be where Im at, but Im not playing for the individual stuff. Im playing for the Grey Cup." Porter scored his touchdown when he took over from Glenn on the Ticats final possession of the first half. Head coach Marcel Bellefeuille had said he would be using a quarterback tandem heading into the playoffs. Glenn finished with nine completions on 18 attempts for 116 yards, no TDs or interceptions. The Ticats led 16-10 at halftime. Hamiltons Marcus Thigpen opened the third quarter with a 43-yard kick-off return that set up Medlocks 48-yard field goal and boosted Hamiltons lead to 19-10. Medlock returned to clean up the next possession, after Porter was sacked for an 11-yard loss, with a 47-yarder to give Hamilton a 22-10 lead. Hamilton running back Avon Cobourne fumbled on the B.C. 26-yard line, and the Lions recovered but couldnt do anything with the ball. That led to a 37-yard punt by McCallum being returned 36 yards by Thigpen to the B.C. 22. The kicker also had to do his own tackling to keep Thigpen from the endzone. Two plays later, Porter found Grant for the 24-yard catch-and-run TD and a 29-10 Hamilton lead heading into the fourth. Medlocks sixth field goal and Mariuz interception gave the Ticats the 39-10 lead. Mariuz then recovered a fumble on B.C.s next possession. With less than four minutes to play, the Ticats sent in third-string quarterback Jason Boltus to finish the game and Medlock finished the scoring. http://www.louisvuittonoutletshop.com/

That means that Marc Bartra will probably start again in the centre of the defence alongside Gerard Pique. http://www.louisvuittonoutletshop.com/Women-zs-16_Louis-Vuitton-Shoes-fv-88/

. "Im feeling great," Canadas top male diver told CTVOlympics.ca this week, speaking from Germany where he recently finished seventh in the synchronized springboard in a tune-up event.PARIS -- Always so avant-garde, Serena Williams started this years French Open fashion of addressing the Court Philippe Chatrier spectators in their language. Rafael Nadal followed suit after his first-round victory, as did Roger Federer, whos done it for years. And Novak Djokovic also got in on a ritual thats become de rigueur, telling fans in French at the end of a rain-disrupted Day 3 at the clay-court tournament, "The ambiance was awesome." Thats certainly one way to endear oneself to the locals. "I really wanted to finish tonight," Djokovic said after wrapping up his match shortly before 9 p.m. Tuesday, "although I know the crowd wanted to watch a little longer." Because of the wet weather, there was not much tennis to see -- only two of the four matches originally scheduled for Tuesday in the main stadium actually began. So Djokovic spent much of the afternoon wondering when he would wind up taking the court for what turned out to be a 7-6 (5), 6-4, 7-5 victory over David Goffin in the first round of the only Grand Slam tournament the Serb has yet to win. "It was a difficult day, because we have been waiting for hours and hours. I think I warmed up five or six times today," Djokovic said. "In these conditions ... you need to adjust your game and tactics, because its quite different than comparing to the conditions when its dry and sunny." Unlike Wimbledon and the Australian Open, Roland Garros does not have a roof at any court. Unlike the U.S. Open, though, at least there is a definitive timeline to build one. French Open officials said last weekend they would proceed with plans to put a retractable roof over centre court despite a judicial ruling in March that put the project on hold. The roof would be completed in 2018 as part of a $440 million renovation. Last years final between champion Nadal and runner-up Djokovic was halted in the fourth set Sunday because of rain, and they resumed Monday, the first time since 1973 the French Open didnt finish on time. Djokovic was pleased to learn that a cover is coming to the main court in Paris, and he also is eager for them to install artificial lights. Both of those improvements would have contributed to a more stress-free evening Tuesday for the man ranked and seeded No. 1. He and the 58th-ranked Goffin, a Belgian who was one of the revelations at Roland Garros a year ago, did not begin until after 6:30 p.m., even though theirs was the second match of the day. They finished as light was fading. "It was a long day," Djokovic said. At least he got to play. Because of showers that began in the morning, there was a delay of more than 2 1/2 hours at the start. Then, after only 1 1/2 hours of action, another stop of more than an hour came. In the end, 26 of 40 scheduled singles matches were completed, three were suspended in progress, and 11 were postponed entirely. That means players such as Victoria Azarenka, the reigning Australian Open champion, was slated for first-round action Wednesday, the fourth day of the tournament (when, by the way, the forecast called for more rain). That sets up a ssituation where Azarenka, for example, would need to win seven matches across 11 days to take home the trophy, while 2002 champion Williams -- who got to begin the tournament Sunday and was scheduled to play in the second round Wednesday -- would have her seven matches spread over 14 days if she goes the distance.dddddddddddd. Also among those who had yet to play a real point heading into Wednesday was 2011 Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova. The Day 4 program featured second-round matches for 2009 champion Federer and 2012 runner-up Sara Errani. Tuesdays winners included 2010 French Open runner-up and 2011 U.S. Open champion Sam Stosur, who beat 42-year-old Kimiko Date-Krumm of Japan 6-0, 6-2. "It was spitting a little bit when we went out there," Stosur said. "You think, Oh, are we going to start or are we not? Lucky for me, I was able to finish the match before this last downpour came." Another Australian, Bernard Tomic -- whose father was barred from Roland Garros after being accused this month of head-butting Tomics hitting partner -- stopped because of a torn right hamstring while trailing Victor Hanescu 7-5, 7-6 (8), 2-1. Three other men retired during matches: No. 28 Florian Mayer (right thigh), Alejandro Falla (stomach problems), Simone Bolelli (right wrist). No. 9 Stanislas Wawrinka, No. 12 Tommy Haas and No. 16 Philipp Kohlschreiber and No. 26 Grigor Dimitrov advanced, along with 20-year-old American Jack Sock in his French Open debut. If Dimitrov -- he and Maria Sharapova are an item, so he was asked Tuesday about dealing with paparazzi -- reaches the third round, he could face Djokovic. That would be an intriguing matchup, given that Dimitrov defeated Djokovic on clay at Madrid three weeks ago. "This is the kind of matches Id always want to play in," Dimitrov said. "I feel good on the big courts and playing against good players." Djokovic found Goffin in possession of that same attitude. In 2012, Goffin got into the French Open field as a "lucky loser" -- someone who loses in qualifying but is put in the main draw because another player withdrew -- and made it all the way to the fourth round. Thats when Goffin got to face Federer, his idol, and even took a set off the owner of the most career major titles before losing the match. "He has a good chance to have a good future," Djokovic said. "He likes playing here, obviously. He likes playing on a big stage." Perhaps. But Tuesdays key moment came in the first-set tiebreaker, with Goffin serving at 5-all. After he faulted once, a fan yelled, "Allez, David!" The 22-year-old Goffin then proceeded to miss his second serve, too, for a double-fault that gave Djokovic a set point. Goffin looked in the direction of the offending shout with palms up, as if to say, "What did you do that for?!" "Thats what happens sometimes. When you play in Davis Cup, you see that on every serve, basically," Goffin said. "Anyway, it was up to me to focus my mind. This is the type of thing that can happen, and can happen to anybody. So tough luck." ' ' '
