GLENEAGLES, Scotland - Its 10-6 going into the final day of the Ryder Cup — again. Cheap Nike Air Max . This time, Europes in the lead and its the United States needing a stunning Sunday comeback. Two years after the Miracle of Medinah, where Europe overcome a 10-6 deficit to win 14 1/2-13 1/2, the home team leads by the same score after dominating the foursomes matches at Gleneagles on Saturday. But Europe, too, know what its like to throw away a 10-6 lead. Back in 1999 in Brookline, the U.S. overturned that same score to win 14 1/2-13 1/2. Europe, which has captured seven of the last nine Ryder Cups, needs four points from Sundays 12 singles matches to retain the trophy and 4 1/2 points to win it outright. We know its possible, Europe star Justin Rose said. The finish line is nowhere near yet. Still have 4 1/2 points to earn tomorrow. Thats four or five guys that need to go out and play great golf, and thats nearly half the team. So the way I see it, we have some work to do. The Americans said they are up to the challenge. Everyone in our team room believes that we can do that, U.S. rookie Jordan Spieth said. They have to win 4 1/2 points out of 12 matches. Brookline was 10-6, Medinah was 10-6 the other way. Hopefully, we get some good pairings and some guys out early to go make a move. Saturdays play began with Europe leading 5-3. The United States won 2 1/2 points in the morning fourballs to cut the lead to 6 1/2-5 1/2. Then the Europeans seized command in the afternoon, winning three of the alternate-shot matches and halving the fourth. It was the second day in a row Europe grabbed 3 1/2 points from the foursomes. Lee Westwood and rookie Jamie Donaldson got the ball rolling, beating Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar 2 and 1 in the first foursomes. Then, Graeme McDowell and rookie Victor Dubuisson extended the lead to 8 1/2-5 1/2, beating Ricky Fowler and Jimmy Walker 5 and 4. Dubuisson has won both of his matches in a sensational debut, while Fowler remains without a win in his Ryder Cup career. The third win of the afternoon came from Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia, who defeated Jim Furyk and Hunter Mahan 3 and 2. It was the marquee duos first win in three matches after two halves. Its nice to put that first win on the board, McIlroy said. In the final match, Rose and Martin Kaymer halved with U.S. rookies Spieth and Patrick Reed. With the Americans 1-up going to the final hole, Europe got up and down from a greenside bunker. Rose holed a 5-foot birdie putt to earn the half point. Earlier, Reed lipped out a 2-footer on the 16th, then bent over with his hands on his knees in despair for several seconds. Reed was in the same bunker as Kaymer on No. 18 but had a bad lie and couldnt hit the ball toward the hole. Spieth missed a potential match-winning putt from long range. The morning session featured a record-breaking performance by Rose and Henrik Stenson, who finished with 10 straight birdies to beat Bubba Watson and Matt Kuchar 3 and 2. The European duos 12-under score was a Ryder Cup record in fourballs. The 21-under total for the two pairings was also a record. Its hard to reflect on it when youre playing, but 21 birdies in 16 holes between us, thats something special, Stenson said. It might be a highlight to put on the big screen with the grandkids one day. After Rose and Stenson stretched the overall score to 6-3, the Americans surged back, and came close to levelling the score by the end of the morning. Jim Furyk and Hunter Mahan beat Westwood and Donaldson 4 and 3. Spieth and Reed — winning their second match in two days — took down Thomas Bjorn and Kaymer 5 and 3. Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker earned a half-point against McIlroy and Ian Poulter, bringing the U.S. within a point going into the afternoon foursomes. With an eagle putt to win the match on the 18th, Fowler left it just short. Left out of both sessions was Phil Mickelson, marking the first time the American has been omitted from an entire days play in 10 Ryder Cups. Nike Air Max Outlet . Philippe Desrosiers stopped 42 shots through overtime and three more in the shootout to pick up his third shutout of the season for Rimouski (31-15-7). Zachary Fucale made 28 saves for Halifax (34-17-3) in the loss. Nike Air Max Clearance . Louis second-period goal increased the New York Rangers lead but Dustin Brown has countered for the Los Angeles Kings who now trail the New York Rangers 2-1 in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final at Madison Square Garden. . -- The Sacramento Kings have claimed forward Travis Outlaw off waivers under the NBAs new amnesty provision, filling out the frontcourt with another veteran.Spains 5-1 humiliation at the hands of the Netherlands on Friday came as a shock to everyone who follows the beautiful game. It also served as a reminder that at the highest level of the game, the margin for error is incredibly small. Up 1-0 in the first half after Xabi Alonso had converted a dubious penalty kick, Spain had a glorious chance to double their lead in the 43rd minute. An exquisite reverse pass from Andres Iniesta (pictured below) sent David Silva in alone on the Dutch goal. Unfortunately, Silvas finish wasnt up to the same standard as Iniestas pass. (CLICK FOR LARGER IMAGE) Just one minute later, the Netherlands equalized through a spectacular Robin van Persie diving header. With no apparent danger coming from the Netherlands, Spain set up in a very narrow defensive shape. (Spains opponents will do well to take note – exploiting this is a key to success against the reigning World Cup champs.) Yet just two passes later, the ball was in the back of the Spanish goal. The first pass came from Bruno Martins Indi to Daley Blind, who took up a wide position on the left flank. It was a free pass, with no Spanish player in a position to put pressure on Blinds first touch. (CLICK FOR LARGER IMAGE) Once Blind received the ball, Spains back four was vulnerable to the diagonal ball over the top to van Persie – because Sergio Ramos, the left central defender, fell asleep and got caught ball-watching. (CLICK FOR LARGER IMAGE) With no pressure on the ball, Blind was able to spot that van Persie managed to get a step in front of his marker, Ramos. (CLICK FOR LARGER IMAGE) The ball from Blind was exquisite, and it was matched only by the finish from van Persie - a diving, looping header over Iker Casillas in Spains goal. (CLICK FOR LARGER IMAGE) So what could Spain have done differently? In this situation, when the ball went wide to Blind, Gerard Pique was tight with Arjen Robben, the first striker – as he should be. Fake Nike Air Max For Sale. His defensive partner, Ramos, needed to be in a deeper covering position, so that he could support Pique while also nullifying the threat of the ball in behind to van Persie. (CLICK FOR LARGER IMAGE) It is only a matter of Ramos being 3-4 yards deeper, but at the World Cup, that is sometimes all that is needed to create scoring opportunities. Had Spains back-four been properly aligned (highlighted in yellow, above), Blind would never had played the ball forward for van Persie to run onto because Ramos would have been in a position to head the pass away. This goal, scored right before the half-time break, was a real blow to Spains confidence. From nearly doubling their lead a minute earlier, to conceding a wonder goal to the Dutch, the momentum turned in favour of the Netherlands going into the second half. The Spanish collapse after the break – where they conceded four unanswered goals – should have been prevented, though. The second goal was down to a combination of wonderful skill from Robben and slack marking from Pique and Ramos; the third and fourth goals down to mistakes from Casillas, with the fifth goal a classic counter-attacking move from the Dutch. It would be naïve to presume that this result – as shocking as it was – is an indication that Spains style of play is now ineffective. La Roja still possess a squad full of some of the worlds most talented players, and they will continue to employ their tiki-taka possession game to great effect. Players like Alonso, Xavi, Iniesta and Silva are still a joy to watch, and they will go into their next game with Chile knowing they must win, as a loss will effectively end their tournament. What it does prove, though, is that even the best are fallible on an off day. ' ' '
