BERLIN - Christoph Kramers bizarre own goal gave Borussia Dortmund a 1-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach to end the sides five-game losing streak and lift it out of the Bundesligas relegation zone on Sunday. Johnny Bower Jersey .World Cup winner Kramer converted into his own net from the centre circle in the 58th minute when he inadvertently chipped an attempted back pass over his goalkeeper and could only watch helplessly as the ball bounced in.I thought the ball was going to bounce up, said Kramer, referring to the pass he received from teammate Tony Jantschke. It can happen. But how I played today, that shouldnt happen. The Dortmunders can thank me and I have to excuse myself to the Gladbachers.Dortmund midfielder Sebastian Kehl immediately consoled the 23-year-old, and he said afterward, I hope it doesnt harm him, because hes a good kicker. I wish him all the best for the next game.It was a deserved lead for the home side which had dominated without converting any chances.Marco Reus was a constant thorn for his former side and almost made it 2-0 three minutes after Kramers mishap when he struck the crossbar.Reus went agonizingly near the far post in the second minute, shortly before Yann Sommer pulled off a great save to push another Reus effort onto the post.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a goal ruled out for offside in the 19th, Lukasz Piszczek missed a good opportunity, Henrikh Mkhitaryan fired over with the goal at his mercy, and Sommer made another fine save to stop Aubameyangs free kick to keep it scoreless at the break.Moenchengladbach only threatened in a frenetic finale when Dortmund again missed numerous chances to secure the result.But the home side, which had 22 efforts to the visitors one, held on for a much-needed win to move above Werder Bremen on goal difference. Bremen occupies the relegation playoff spot.We totally deserved to win, said Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp, who also had words of consolation for Kramer.If that had to be the tin opener then Ill take it and tell the tale later. Christoph Kramer now has his own little place in our history.After its first defeat of the season Moenchengladbach is third, seven points behind Bayern Munich.Earlier, Kevin de Bruyne created both goals for Wolfsburg to beat Hamburger SV 2-0 and consolidate second.Ivica Olic opened the scoring in the 26th minute, deflecting de Bruynes wayward effort inside the left post from close range.Aaron Hunt made the game safe in the 64th, with a cool finish from de Bruynes pass — his ninth assist of the season, a Bundesliga high. The Belgian midfielder ran half the length of the pitch before picking out Hunt, who took his time before picking his spot.Wolfsburg were simply better than us, said Hamburg defender Dennis Diekmeier, whose side slipped back into the relegation zone. They deserved the win.American midfielder Julian Green, on loan at Hamburg from Munich, made a 79th-minute substitute appearance.Wolfsburg remained four points behind Bayern after its eighth consecutive win across all competitions.

Kelli Stack and Alex Carpenter also scored for the Americans, who avoided a repeat of Finlands upset at the Four Nations Cup in Lake Placid, N.Y., in November. Finnish goalie Noora Raty made 58 saves in that one, but the three-time Olympian could stop just 40 of 43 U. http://www.cheapmapleleafsjerseys.com/?tag=adidas-josh-leivo-jersey . She was a pioneer. She did things on skis that made the birds take notice.TORONTO - Jonas Valanciunas called it a cold shower — a harsh early-season lesson that brought the Toronto Raptors back down to earth Thursday night.The Raptors dropped a 100-93 decision to the Chicago Bulls in a battle for first place in the Eastern Conference. It was Torontos first loss in six games, and first loss at home in whats been a feel-good early-season story.Its a good experience, coming off the win streak. Thats good, Valanciunas said. Make us regroup and be strong in the next game.Kyle Lowry scored 20 points to lead the Raptors (7-2), who coughed up the game with a dreadful third quarter. James Johnson was big off the bench, with 16 points, five rebounds, four steals and four blocks.The third quarter did us in, said Raptors coach Dwane Casey. They got us on our heels and we stayed on our heels.You know thats the kind of game youre going to have against them. Its a hard game to officiate and its a hard game to play. But youve got to make a muscle and fight through the physicality, the bumps, the grinds. . . we didnt meet that challenge in the third quarter. Amir Johnson had 14 points, while Terrence Ross finished with 12 points.Pau Gasol scored 27 to lead the Bulls (7-2), while Jimmy Butler finished with 21, and Derrick Rose scored 20 before leaving the game with 1:53 left with a left hamstring injury.I guess it was cramps in my hamstrings, said Rose, whod missed most of the previous two seasons with knee injuries. I think it is minor and they decided to pull me out.The Raptors led by nine points late in the second quarter, but the Bulls lit it up in third, outscoring Toronto 25-14 in the frame, punctuated with a 27-10 run, to send them into the fourth with a 80-66 lead.When Joakim Noah fed a wide-open Taj Gibson for a dunk early in the fourth, it put the Bulls up by 16, eliciting groans from the sellout Air Canada Centre crowd of 19,800 that included actor Donald Sutherland and Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel.A running layup by Rose put the Bulls up by 18 with 5:03 to play. Lowry — whose collision with a fan seated courtside left him wiping off remnants of an ice cream sandwich — drained a long jumper with 3:05 to go to make it a 10-point game.With the fans on their feet, Ross connected on a three to pull Toronto within seven, then a James Johnson block led to an Amir Johnson dunk, and the deficit was five points.But Mike Dunleavys two free throws with a minute left put the Bulls back up by seven, then it was a matter of the clock running out on Toronto.You find out you really arent as good. . ., James Johnson said. But none of us have big heads in here, all of us strive to get better every game regardless of whether we win or lose, we look at film regardless of whether we win or lose, and learn from the mistakes.The game marked the first time thee Raptors hosted a nationally-televised game on TNT since the Raptors hosted Orlando — Vince Carter vs. Auston Matthews Jersey. Tracy McGrady — in 2002. And the Air Canada Centre dressed up for the occasion, unfurling the giant We the North banner.The noise was reminiscent of last seasons playoff games, but all the ACCs cheering couldnt lift Toronto to a victory.Lowry said the game was a good gauge of where the Raptors are at — and where they need to get to.Just know thats what weve got to get up to, that physicality, that type of defensive intensity, that type of offence that they could go to a couple of different guys who could take over games at different points, Lowry said.Torontos all-star DeMar DeRozan struggled through another uncharacteristically low-scoring night, making just three of 17 shots for 10 points.Its fine, Im not worried about it at all, DeRozan said. These games, theyre going to happen, especially now. Ive just got to learn from it, not get down on it, get frustrated. Two years ago, Id think it was the end of the world, but were only eight games in. Id rather have these games now than later on.It was a strong game for Rose, whose two sprained ankles had kept him out of half of Chicagos games, to this point. Rose played in just 49 games total in the last two seasons, due to knee injuries.We have a good team, we had the game up by 10 by then so why force it, Rose said, on the decision to leave the game. I overstepped, just stretched out a little bit more with my left leg. It just comes with the process I guess of missing two years.The two teams were evenly matched through a first quarter that saw eight lead changes, and neither team lead by more than three points. The Bulls took a 25-24 lead into the second.James Johnson scored 12 points in a second quarter that saw the Raptors second unit contributing 18 of Torontos 22 points. Greivis Vasquez fed Johnson for a dunk that put the Raptors up by eight midway through the frame, then Patrick Patterson drained a three with 38 seconds to go, and Toronto headed to the dressing room up 52-45 at halftime.A running dunk by Jonas Valanciunas early in the fourth put Toronto up by five, but then the wheels fell off. Gasol and Dunleavy scored eight points apiece in the quarter to lead a charging Bulls team that took a 14-point lead into the fourth.The Raptors host Utah on Saturday, then Memphis on Wednesday. Their homestand ends Nov. 21 when they host Milwaukee.NOTES: The Raptors last TNT game was April 16, 2013 in Atlanta after an Indiana-Boston game was cancelled due to the Boston marathon bombing. . . The Raptors previous best start to the season was 4-1 in 2004-05.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version reported that the We the North banner had not been unfurled since the playoffs.
