LAKE PLACID, N. Phil Hughes Jersey .Y. -- Steven Holcomb wins a World Cup bobsled gold medal on home ice nearly every year, and Jamie Gruebel Poser may be following that same path.It was a U.S. bobsled sweep at Mount Van Hoevenberg on Friday. Gruebel Poser and Aja Evans held off U.S. teammates Elana Meyers Taylor and Lolo Jones to win the womens race, and Holcomb teamed with Sam McGuffie to win the two-man race -- his sixth gold in the last seven international two-man races on his home track.Every single person out here wanted to win today, Holcomb said. To have a victory, to be on top, no matter where it is, its nice; just getting back to that mentality of winning again. It is a mentality. Putting together two runs. These cold conditions make the ice very hard and very slippery. Being the veteran on the tour, my experience paid off today.For Greubel Poser, it was the second straight year she drove to a World Cup win at Lake Placid.She and Evans finished their two runs on a frigid day in 1 minute, 52.02 seconds, taking advantage of super-hard, super-fast ice to set a track record along the way. Meyers Taylor and Jones were 0.14 seconds back in 1:52.16, while the Canadian team of Olympic champion Kaillie Humphries and Cynthia Appiah was third in 1:53.05.It just shows how strong Team USA is, Meyers Taylor said.Gruebel Poser and Evans broke the track record in their first heat, finishing in 55.81. Thats a significant shaving off the former mark, 56.28 set by Meyers Taylor and Cherrelle Garrett two years ago.We were so excited to see that time when we crossed the finish line, Greubel Poser said. I was screaming, we were just so excited to know that we went that fast. We literally gave everything we had at the top.And in the mens race, only U.S. and Canadian sleds reached the podium as well -- a rare World Cup bobsled day with nothing but North Americans in the top three spots.Holcomb and McGuffie won in 1:49.47. Canada took silver and bronze, with the team of World Cup points leader Justin Kripps and Jesse Lumsden finishing in 1:49.74, 0.01 ahead of Chris Spring and Lascelles Brown.The four-person race is Saturday, and Meyers Taylor is expected to be one of the drivers in the field -- pushed by a team that will include her husband, Nic Taylor. She would be competing against male drivers for the third time in World Cup competition, after doing so twice in the 2014-15 season and finishing 13th and 16th. Joe Mauer Jersey . -- The plastic that was taped across the lockers in Oaklands clubhouse came down and the champagne that was on ice went back into the cooler. Justin Morneau Jersey . Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones that forced them off. http://www.baseballtwinsprostore.com/twins-matt-belisle-jersey/ . -- On the field, it was business as usual for Jameis Winston and No. WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- After years of frustration with an anemic offense, Wake Forest finally had a pair of breakout performers in last weeks road win at Duke. But before the conclusion of the first quarter of Saturdays game against Delaware, both of those players were sidelined due to injury.At least this week, it didnt matter.Sophomore running back Matt Colburn rushed for a career-high 118 yards and a touchdown, and quarterback John Wolford scored a pair of touchdowns to go with 155 passing yards and another 70 on the ground as the injury-riddled Demon Deacons knocked off Delaware 38-21 on Saturday.Colburn proved a capable replacement for injured freshman Cade Carney, who scored three touchdowns in Wake Forests 24-14 victory at Duke. Colburn powered through for a 1-yard touchdown just before halftime and averaged 4.9 yards per carry.Thats what we work on in practice. We work to be ready, Colburn said. When one guy goes down, the next guy has got to be ready to step up to the plate. It just so happened thats what happened for me tonight, and I just took everything, made the most of my opportunities that I could.He wasnt the only reserve forced into action due to injury.Quarterback Kendall Hinton, starting his second career game after leading all four Deacon scoring drives at Duke, pulled up with an injury of his own during a run late in the first quarter. Hinton was not hit on the play, but went to the ground immediately after sustaining a left knee sprain. He did not return, and coach Dave Clawson said Hintons status moving forward was uncertain.In his stead, former starter Wolford returned to action. While his passing performance was inconsistent, the Deacons dominance on the ground ensured it wouldnt matter.Wake Forest, which moved to 3-0 for the first time since 2008, ran for 302 yards. Five different players registered at least 30 yards rushing.Weve been getting better every game. Jose Berrios Jersey. Our rushing attack is so much better than last year, said Colburn. Its really exciting to see, and its really gratifying when we produce those results.The Deacons dominated in a manner that the final score did not demonstrate, piling up 481 yards of total offense while holding the Blue Hens to 94. But a pair of turnovers inside their own 20-yard line gave Delaware two quick scores, and Wake Forests lead was only 17-14 before Colburns touchdown run.But the Deacons followed up on his score by beginning the third quarter with a 10-play, 75-yard TD drive that extended their lead to 31-14 and ended any thoughts of an upset.We never make it easy, Clawson said. But I thought for the most part, we dominated play.THE TAKEAWAYWake Forest: The win was Clawsons ninth overall at Wake Forest, and his third against Championship Subdivision opponents. While the Deacons have struggled in recent seasons, they have fared well against FCS schools, winning by an average margin of 23.6 points under Clawson.Delaware: The Blue Hens fell for the fifth consecutive time against a Bowl Subdivision opponent. Their last victory against an FBS foe came in 2007, a 59-52 win over Navy.GROUND TO A HALTSaturdays performance was the first time Wake Forest held an opponent to fewer than 100 yards since a 1952 game against Furman, when the Deacons did not allow a single yard. Any time you hold the other team to under 100, youve got to be happy with the overall physicality of the game, Clawson said.UP NEXTWake Forest: The Demon Deacons will look for their first 4-0 start since 2006 when they visit Indiana. That 2006 squad went on to win Wake Forests second, and most recent, ACC championship.Delaware: The Blue Hens return to FCS play when they host James Madison on October 1 Cheap Jerseys Free ShippingWholesale Jerseys ChinaCheap JerseysCheap Jerseys 2018Cheap NFL Jerseys WholesaleStitched JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
