BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. -- Toronto FC finally found the back of the net on Saturday. Torontos scoreless streak ended at three-plus games and 279 consecutive minutes as Dwayne De Rosario scored a late goal to salvage a 1-1 tie with the Chicago Fire at Toyota Park. "The first half we were a little timid, we sat back a little bit and needed more movement," said Toronto coach Greg Vanney, who remains winless since being named coach on Aug. 31. "The second half we came out and knew at some point we were going to push forward and, more importantly, we got more aggressive. "When we did that we created opportunities." A potential game-winner by forward Gilberto in stoppage time was waved off. Toronto FC (9-11-7) still saw its winless streak reach six while the Fire (5-7-15) moved to within one draw from matching an MLS record for most ties in a season. Until De Rosarios score, Torontos last goals came in a 2-2 tie with Chicago on Aug. 23 at BMO Field. They still havent beaten the Fire since May 8, 2010, a span of 10 games. Goalkeeper Joe Bendik turned back six shots, allowing only Palmers score on a header in the 11th minute. Bendik also stopped a second half penalty kick from Chicago captain Jeff Larentowicz. "Joe made a couple of phenomenal saves that kept us in it," Vanney said. Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson recorded five saves for his sixth shutout. Chicago coach Frank Yallop said his team lacked a will to finish. "Not having that real last do-or-die spirit to win a game, thats was missing," Yallop said. "I cant fault the guys for their continued efforts, but their mental, slight breakdowns are hurting us." Defender Lovel Palmer scored his first goal in three seasons to give Chicago an early lead on a header in the 11th minute. It was his first goal since a May 7, 2011 tally against Toronto while with Houston. Stuck in ninth place in the MLS Eastern Conference and with seven games to play, the Fire are seven points out of fifth place and the final Eastern Conference playoff spot. Toronto currently stands in seventh in the East. Saturdays game was the final regular season meeting between the teams, who tied in two previous meetings. Toronto opens a two-game home stand next Sunday against Chivas USA and entertains Portland on Sept. 27.

The San Angelo, Texas product, who was a high school and college quarterback sensation in the Lone Star State, will start his first CFL game with the Saskatchewan Roughriders (9-4) on Friday at Mosaic Stadium against the leagues top team, the Calgary Stampeders (11-2).The Oklahoma City Thunder and Memphis Grizzlies return to Chesapeake Energy Arena Tuesday night for a crucial Game 5 of their Western Conference quarterfinal matchup. The Thunder knotted the series with a 92-89 overtime victory in Memphis Saturday night. It was the third overtime contest during the four games of this series. "Now its tied up 2-2," OKC head coach Scott Brooks said. "That means that we have to play with the same type of intensity on both ends of the floor in front of our home crowd, which are the best fans in the league." The Grizzlies won Game 2 in Oklahoma City. On Saturday, the Thunders hero wasnt Kevin Durant, or Russell Westbrook. It wasnt even Serge Ibaka, rather top bench producer Reggie Jackson. Jackson scored a playoff career-best 32 points, including eight in overtime, to lead the Thunder. "We were struggling there in the fourth, and he just took it over," Durant said. "He was aggressive going to the rim all night. He just told himself before the game to be assertive. Defensively he was good. Offensively he attacked the defense and opened it up for everybody. We rolled all night. He made huge, huge plays and Im so proud of him." Durant had 15 points and 13 boards and Westbrook totaled 15 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, but the duo combined to shoot 11-of-45. Ibaka provided 12 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks for the second-seeded Thunder, who shot 36.7 percent. Marc Gasol had 23 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Grizzlies, who had a chance to tie the game at the end but Mike Conley missed a 3-point shot. The seventh-seeded Grizzlies had a 15-game home winning streak broken. Conley had 14 points and 10 assists, and Tony Alllen ended with 14 points and 13 rebounds in defeat.dddddddddddd. Zach Randolph was limited to 11 points for the Grizzlies, who made 37.2 percent from the floor. Memphis widened the gap to 80-75 following a Gasol jumper beyond the foul line with 1:20 left, but the Thunder scrapped to get the game to OT. Jackson drained a 3-ball with 59.2 seconds left, and Durant came up with a steal, which led to Jacksons floater in the lane to tie the game with 30.6 on the clock. It was a wild finish to regulation. Gasol missed a foul-line jumper, and Allen got the offensive rebound, but Ibaka came up with the block under the hoop. Jackson then got the loose ball and had plenty of time to dribble down the court, but shot early well beyond half-court and the ball went out of bounds as time expired. OKC used hustle plays to even this series with Jackson at the center of the effort. He dove for a loose ball on the floor with 1:08 left in OT. Durant then was fouled on a drive to the bucket and made two for an 88-87 edge for the Thunder with 62 seconds left. Conley missed high off the glass, but he came back with a big steal. Westbrook missed a jumper, got his own rebound and tried to dribble the ball back out, but Conley stole the ball and called timeout with 30.9 on the clock. Conleys jumper was then too strong and Jackson made two from the charity stripe with 12.2 seconds left. Conley then drove in for an uncontested layup with 3.8 seconds to go, but Jackson made two more foul shots less than a second later. "I thought the little plays made the difference," said Memphis coach Dave Joerger. "I thought we had great chances to pull out the win. They made enough plays." Game 6 is slated for Thursday night in Memphis. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
