HAMILTON, Ont. -- A desperate bid by the Hamilton Bulldogs to generate some offence came back to haunt them. Luke Adam scored his first of two goals on a counterattack early in the third period, and the Rochester Americans held on for a 3-1 win over the Bulldogs in American Hockey League play Wednesday. Hamilton suffered its fifth consecutive loss and sixth in seven games. Head coach Sylvain Lefebvre was left to rue his teams costly lapse of judgement. "We cant have that happen," said Lefebvre. "We refocused in the second period after they got the best of us, and then to start the third period that way is unacceptable." Phil Varone also scored for the Americans (6-3-4), while Matt Hackett made 26 saves. Sven Andrighetto had the lone goal for the Bulldogs (5-6-3) while Dustin Tokarski made 34 saves in a losing effort. The Americans scored the decisive goal just 23 seconds into the third period, as Mike Zigomanis sprung a counter attack. A well-worked passing play saw Zigomanis move the puck ahead to Kevin Sundher on the right wing. Sundher backhanded a centring pass to Adam, who easily beat Tokarski from the edge of the crease. "We want to be a team that plays hard defensively, and were not even doing that right now," said Lefebvre. "Were struggling because were not doing what were supposed to be doing. "We cheat for chances and we havent been playing well in our own zone." Tokarski produced a series of pad saves to keep Rochester off the scoreboard in the early minutes of the first period, but his good work was all for naught when Varone scored the games opening goal at 5:02. The Rochester forward corralled the puck outside the offensive zone and cut in through the middle of the ice, splitting Hamiltons defenders. He released a quick wrist shot that found an opening between Tokarskis chest and arm to trickle over the goal-line. Hamilton pounced on a Rochester giveaway to level the game at 14:20 of the period. A badly-placed exit pass landed on the stick of the forechecking Mike Blunden in the slot, whose initial shot was bobbled by Hackett. The winger crashed the net and was followed by Andrighetto, who alertly fired the loose puck in as it slid to him. The goal was Andrighettos team-leading seventh of the season. It appeared that Rochester had retaken the lead with just over a minute to play in the period, but Jamie Tardif was ruled to have kicked the puck past knocked Tokarski at the end of a goal-mouth scramble on a power play. Rochester had the clearest chance to score in a sloppy second period, as Zigomanis grabbed a rebound and rung a slap shot off of Tokarskis near post with four and a half minutes to play. Nathan Beaulieu manufactured an opportunity for the Bulldogs two minutes later, when he walked in from the blue-line and stepped past an American defender before chipping a wrist shot toward Hackett, who slid to turn it aside with his shoulder. Hamilton captain Martin St. Pierre called for his team to simplify its approach on offence. "We start out well, but whether were trying to do to much individually or as a team, weve just got to get back to the basics," said St. Pierre. "Whether its the first line or the fourth, weve got to get the puck deep and play simple. "Were getting down on ourselves mentally, and its affecting us physically." The Bulldogs have been outscored 12-3 in their past three games. Notes: Wednesdays contest was the Bulldogs annual "School Game," bringing Hamilton-area school children to Copps Coliseum for a morning game at 10:00 a.m. a Announced attendance was 12,185.

Almost 18 months after Armstrongs seven Tour wins were wiped from the record, an independent panel created by the new International Cycling Union leadership has begun work to discover the extent of the sports past problems. TORONTO -- It goes down as a comfortable win. But it was far from an impressive performance. "We set basketball back 15 years in the first half," Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey quipped after his team defeated the Orlando Magic 105-90 at the Air Canada Centre Sunday night. "But like I told our guys, were going to have a lot of games where were going to have to grind it out," Casey said. "For whatever reason, we struggle in the first half and then come through, turn it on. "But I also think thats a little bit of growth on our part." After shooting a woeful 41.7 per cent from the field in the first half, the Raptors shot 12-for-14 in the third quarter to blow the game open on the way to win their second straight and fifth in six outings. "Just coming out with a different kind of intensity," point guard Kyle Lowry said when asked about the key to turning things around in the second half. "Weve got to figure out a way to start the game the way we start third quarters. "Thats how weve got to come out from now on." Lowry had 17 points in the third as the Raptors (31-25) widened a three-point halftime lead to 15. Lowry, who was just 1-for-7 from the field in the first half, hit all five of his attempts in the third quarter. He had four from beyond the three-point arc in the period, including a 25-footer at the buzzer which brought the crowd of 17,435 to their feet. Lowry scored the final 14 points for the Raptors in the third quarter and the first two of the fourth quarter as Toronto stretched the lead to as much as 18 points. Toronto is six games above .500 for the first time since Feb..dddddddddddd 24, 2010, when they were also 31-25. Facing the struggling Magic (17-41), the Raptors were uncharacteristically sloppy, turning the ball over 24 times, which led to 25 Orlando points and allowed the visitors to keep the game close. "Were not that good of a team to just ease our way into the game," Lowry said. "Weve got to come out and play with our hard-nosed and hard-headed intensity from the start." Lowry scored 28 points, including four three-pointers to run his career-high mark to 134 this season. DeMar DeRozan added 24 points for the Raptors, who had five players score in double-figures. Amir Johnson left midway through the third quarter with what was described by Raptors personnel as a right ankle sprain. He had 12 points and eight rebounds in 23 minutes before leaving. Casey said it didnt appear Johnson hurt it as badly as earlier in the season when he missed two games. Tobias Harris matched Lowrys 28 points to lead Orlando, which fell to 3-26 on the road. It was the Magics 15th straight loss away from home. The Raptors led 19-14 after the first quarter; 44-41 at the half and 80-65 going into the fourth. "You cant put your finger on the slow starts," DeRozan said. "Maybe we like a challenge sometimes by putting ourselves in a tough situation, so we can fight our way out. "We have to stop that and understand that we have to come out of the gate, so we dont make the game that hard on us." The Raptors visit the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday before returning home to host the Washington Wizards on Thursday and the Golden State Warriors next Sunday afternoon. cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys Soni Mustivar Jersey ' ' '
