#1 Dallas drafted him. by jinshuiqian0713 11.12.2019 04:48

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.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.

Hal Greer Jersey .The 24-year-old quarterback spent four seasons at Northern Illinois and in 2013 was a finalist for the Heisman, which is awarded annually to the most outstanding player in U.IRVING, Texas - Jethro Pugh played alongside Hall of Famers Bob Lilly and Randy White in a long career as a defensive tackle for the Dallas Cowboys, which may explain why he was among the most unsung Super Bowl winners in the franchises storied history.Pugh, who played in the first four Super Bowls for Dallas and was part of a Doomsday Defence that won two of them, died Wednesday. He was 70.The team said Pugh died of natural causes four days before the Cowboys were to play their first post-season game in Green Bay since the famous Ice Bowl in 1967. Pugh was blocked on Bart Starrs quarterback sneak for the game-winning touchdown in Dallas 21-17 loss in the Ice Bowl that sent the Packers to the second Super Bowl.He was loved and appreciated by his teammates and Cowboys fans for decades, and his spirit will be felt when our team travels to Green Bay this weekend, owner Jerry Jones said.Pugh was the first Dallas player to lead the team in sacks five straight seasons (1968-72). DeMarcus Ware, the franchise sacks leader, was the only other to do it. Pugh is sixth on the teams list with 95 1/2 sacks. His 14 seasons are tied for fourth in club history.He was a terribly unsung person among that bunch of great players he had, said Gil Brandt, who wass the personnel director when the Cowboys drafted Pugh in the 11th round in 1965.ddddddddddddrandt said Pugh was a 20-year-old graduate of Elizabeth City State in North Carolina when Dallas drafted him. He became a starter the year of the Ice Bowl and started his five-year streak of leading the team in sacks a year later.Pugh played on Dallas teams that beat Miami and Denver in the Super Bowl after the 1971 and 1977 seasons. He was on teams that lost to Baltimore and Pittsburgh.The final season for Pugh was 1978, when he played in 13 regular-season games but missed the playoffs, including a loss to Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl.He would have been a top 10-type player in the draft today, Brandt said. He was big, long arms, very athletic, very fast. Just a great competitor. Smart. He was well beyond his years.Pugh never made the Pro Bowl, while teammates Lilly, White, Mel Renfro, Cliff Harris and Chuck Howley combined for 42 all-star appearances. Pugh was second-team All-Pro in 1968.After football, Pugh had a successful career as a businessman through a company that runs airport concessions.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler ' ' '
