Sweden and Canada became the first mens teams to qualify for the Olympic curling semifinals on Sunday, and Britain missed the chance to join them by losing to Norway. Pas Cher Prix Pour Adidas Tubular Runner Femme Chaussures . Canada (6-2) stole a point at the last end to secure an 8-6 win over the U.S., which now cannot qualify. The Canadians didnt know they had qualified when they came off the ice after a tense win over the U.S. team, but they soon were celebrating. Even if the Canadians lose their last game — to China in the evening session — the worst they could finish is tied at 6-3 with Norway and Britain. They would qualify on a superior head-to-head record, the Canadian Curling Association confirmed. "We played all right, definitely not our best, but its still good to get the win knowing that we didnt put our best performance together," Canada skip Brad Jacobs said. The game came down to the final shot, delivered by U.S. skip John Shuster. His draw settled around the button next to a Canadian stone, which was closer by barely half an inch. "Sometimes you are on the right side and sometimes on the wrong side," Shuster said. "It just sucks that weve been on the wrong side at the Olympics." Playing in front of their king, Carl XVI Gustaf, the Swedes beat Russia 8-4 in nine ends to move into the outright lead at 7-1. They are the reigning world champions. Norway (4-3) staved off elimination with a 7-6 win over Britain (5-3), ensuring there will be plenty to play for going into the final day of round-robin action Monday. "It was one of the most important games of our career," said Haavard Vad Petersson, who was part of the Norway team that won an Olympic silver medal in 2010. "We had to win this one to stay alive. "We have won a medal before but we want to get gold." The Americans are 2-5. Norways final two games are against Switzerland and Denmark, both of which are out of contention. Britains last game is against China. Adidas Superstar Foundation Blanc Noir j w Chaussures . -- EJ Manuel followed the worst game of his career with the best.

When his time finally came, the Florida State transfer came through. Trickett threw a touchdown pass in his first start at West Virginia and engineered two late scoring drives, leading the Mountaineers to a 30-21 win over No. 11 Oklahoma State on Saturday. For all the mistakes West Virginia made in a 37-0 loss at Maryland last week, the Mountaineers (3-2, 1-1 Big 12) seemed to get most of the breaks Saturday. "There has been a bunch of emotions over the past week, embarrassment and disappointment," Holgorsen said. "But they kept working. It was the best week of practice that we have had all year. We felt like we could win, so we went out there and wanted it pretty bad." Trickett was named West Virginias third starting quarterback after Ford Childress was injured last week. Trickett was chosen to start over Paul Millard, who started the first two games but lost the job after a 16-7 loss at Oklahoma. Trickett finished 24 of 50 for 309 yards in his first start since subbing for EJ Manuel for the Seminoles in October 2011. "When youre the starter, and you know youve got everyone behind you and theyre confident in you, thats so big for me," Trickett said. Trickett said it was tough being passed over as the starter in West Virginias first four games. He played two series in a backup role and couldnt move the offence in the season opener against William & Mary. He didnt play again until Saturday. After taking a 24-14 halftime lead, West Virginia was held out of the end zone in the second half and relied on its defence to slow down J.W. Walsh, who couldnt bring the Cowboys back from their first halftime deficit of the season. Walsh threw three touchdown passes but was intercepted twice. Holgorsen came out on top against Mike Gundy, the Oklahoma State coach whose offence Holgorsen installed when he was the Cowboys offensive co-ordinator in 2010. The teams combined for 177 offensive plays. Yet Holgorsen was proud of one of the better defensive efforts in the thrree years since hes been at West Virginia.

Cornerback Ishmael Banks 58-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter was part of 13 points the Mountaineers scored off Oklahoma States three turnovers -- more turnovers than the Cowboys (3-1, 0-1) had in their first three games combined. They also were plagued by errant and dropped passes, poor punting and were penalized 10 times for 96 yards. "There were times when we were functioning and doing fine, and then wed have a drop or two, then a poor throw and then wed put the ball on the ground," Gundy said. "Those arent small mistakes. Those are big mistakes." Oklahoma State, making the 1,000-mile trip to Morgantown for the first time since 1928, got the only second-half touchdown on Walshs 30-yard scoring pass to fullback Jeremy Seaton in blown coverage early in the third quarter. The Cowboys had the chance to tie it midway through the fourth, but Ben Grogans 23-yard field goal try hit the right upright. It marked the first time in 16 tries this season that Oklahoma State didnt score a touchdown when it advanced inside the opponents 20. West Virginia had poor field position for much of the second half and needed a spark to keep its lead. It didnt look good when Trickett left the field for one play after taking a hit to his throwing shoulder early in the fourth quarter, but he returned on the next series. Trickett eventually threw a pair of 17-yard passes to Ronald Carswell and Jordan Thompson to set up Josh Lamberts 27-yard field goal with 3:55 left. Walsh, who finished 20 of 47 for 322 yards, then was intercepted by Darwin Cook and West Virginia took over at the Oklahoma State 36. A personal foul penalty on cornerback Justin Gilbert put the ball at the 7, and Lambert closed the scoring with a 34-yard field goal with 1:28 remaining to close the scoring. Lambert also had a field goal in the first quarter. "It kind of snowballed on us late," Gundy said.
