    Sydney FC have continued their sensational unbeaten start to the A-League season as David Carney scored a brace to send Melbourne Victory packing 2-1 in a thrilling, spiteful Big Blue. Matt Harvey Jersey .The Sky Blues rode their luck throughout a tricky first half at Allianz Stadium on Saturday then came from a goal down to stick the knife in and claim their first win against Victory in 10 meetings.The result leaves the Sky Blues with five wins from five games this season and five points clear at the top of the table - though it wasnt always clear-cut.Sydney conceded their first goal of this campaign when Mitch Austin put Victory in front on 41 minutes.It was a deserved goal for the left-winger, who played the role of creator all night and ran Sydney right-back Rhyan Grant ragged.Yet it should have come much earlier in an incredibly lucky first half for the hosts, during which Besart Berisha had a goal disallowed and missed a penalty, while captain Alex Brosque could well have been sent off for his heavy challenge on Leigh Broxham.Sandwiched in between, Marco Rojas missed a sitter with Sydney goalkeeper Danny Vukovic erroneously off his line and an empty net beckoning.Austin, who delivered Rojas the cross, was also provider of a lovely through ball to Berisha in the opening minutes, but the offside flag was raised moments after the Albanian striker chipped into the net.Berisha was then the recipient of wild jeers from 19,143 mostly Sydney fans for his shocking attempt at a penalty.The shot skewed high and left of goal, forcing a wry smile from him and a taunt from Filip Holosko, the man who had fouled him in the box.Despite the catalogue of close calls and chances at both ends, Sydney had a slight upper hand, with Serbian playmaker Milos Ninkovic applying pressure and Josh Brillante narrowly missing a long-range bullet.Graham Arnold clearly wasnt happy though and the coach traded barbs with his Victory counterpart Kevin Muscat, who was given a warning by referee Chris Beath as tensions boiled over.Tempers flared on the field too as substitute Matt Simon got rough with James Donachie and Michael Zullo suffered a nasty collision with a pitchside table.Amid the drama, Arnold made the big call of replacing marquee man Holosko with veteran Carney on the hour mark - and it proved a masterstroke.The former Socceroo struck just four minutes into his introduction, appearing to handle Brosques ball in the box before stabbing home with his left foot.Then, on the 78th minute, Grant cut the ball back to Carney for his clinical left boot to prod home again.Muscat said Carneys first goal was a definite handball.We cant do anything about it now, but people say there was a change to the outcome of the game - well, its a goal, Muscat said.But weve got to learn from that as well because they get in behind us from a throw-in, so weve got to take some responsibility.But were just asking, in my opinion, for the referee to see those decisions or those outcomes.Arnold was pleased with his teams fantastic comeback, having implored them at halftime to revert to their possession-based game.We didnt play our way in the first half, Arnold said.We wanted to get more involved in the fight and tried to get in behind them too quick. Cliff Pennington Jersey . -- There were a lot of firsts for the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. Homer Bailey Jersey . Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday night. . But the quarterback hopes to stay involved in football after officially calling it quits Tuesday. "Id love to look at those opportunities as they arise," Pierce said in an interview from his Winnipeg eatery. SAN DIEGO -- Jon Lester had another strong outing and his teammates powered their way to another win.Kris Bryant, Addison Russell and Jason Heyward all homered to back Lester as the Chicago Cubs beat the San Diego Padres 5-1 on Monday night.Lester (14-4) limited the Padres to a run and five hits in six innings. He struck out eight and walked two in winning for the 10th time in his last 11 decisions.The left-hander improved to 5-0 with six quality starts out of seven since the All-Star break.Game after game after game you kind of know what to expect from him right now, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. He had really good stuff tonight.Lester was making his first regular-season appearance at Petco Park, the last active ballpark where he hadnt yet started.I just try to go pitch and do a good job, he said. Thats all I worry about. The main number for me that Im always concerned about is 200 innings. If thats there, then all the other stuff is kind of gravy.Bryants solo shot in the fifth inning was his 32nd of the year, tying him with Colorados Nolan Arenado for the National League lead.Russell added his third home run in two days, and the struggling Heyward -- recently benched to rest mentally -- got his first since July 29.It was great for Jason to be able to do that, Cubs manager Joe Madden said. Those are the kinds of things that can get his confidence going again and going in the right direction.Anthony Rizzo had four hits to tie a career-high for the NL Central-leading Cubs, who have won six of their last eight games and 20 of 25.Edwin Jackson (3-4) gave up five runs and seven hits in five innings. The right-hander struck out two and walked four, one intentionally, as he snapped a three-start winning streak.It just wasnt a great job by me, Jackson said.The Padres, who have lost seven of nine, had only one runner reach third base in the opening five innings.Lester was lifted at 100 pitches after Alex Dickerson and Christian Bethancourt opened the seventh with singles. Justin Grimm, the first of three relievvers, came on and allowed a run on a wild pitch when striking out Ryan Schimpf. Adam Duvall Jersey. San Diegos only other threat was in the sixth, as Brett Wallace advanced to third on a one-out single and two-base error by Heyward in right when he overran the ball. But Lester struck out Travis Jankowski looking and, after a walk to Alexei Ramirez, struck out Wil Myers with a devastating curveball.Chicago pulled away with a three-run fifth, which featured two home runs. Bryant led off with arching shot into the left-center field seats. After Rizzos double, Heyward hit his long fly for a 5-0 advantage.That was the one that really hurt, that two-run homer, Jackson said. That kind of put a damper on things.The Cubs forged ahead 2-0 in the third as Jackson struggled with his command. Rizzo singled in between walks to Dexter Fowler and Ben Zobrist. That set up Russells sacrifice fly for his second RBI in two innings.You cant fall behind, especially against a team like this, Jackson said.Russell slugged Jacksons 86-mph slider for a home run in the second, his third solo blast in two days for a 1-0 edge.That was a horrible pitch to Russell, Jackson said. He should have hit that one out.The other two pitches hit for homers werent bad, just not good enough against the powerful Cubs.That is a difficult lineup to navigate, Padres manager Andy Green said.TRAINERS ROOMPadres: OF Jabari Blash was placed on the disabled list with a sprained left finger.UP NEXTCubs: RHP Jake Arrieta (15-5, 2.75 ERA) prevailed in his last outing on Thursday against Arizona, but he wasnt sharp. Arrieta, who has nine road wins, had a career-high seven walks and allowed five runs in 5 2/3 innings.Padres: LHP Christian Friedrich (4-9, 4.69 ERA) looks to snap a three-start losing streak as he has dropped seven of his past nine outings. He was effective on Wednesday against Tampa Bay, working 6 2/3 innings of two-run ball. Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Wholesale NFL GearCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys ' ' '
