Two tries from Liam Williams helped Scarlets register their first Guinness PRO12 win of the season after they overcame Connacht 17-8 in a low quality basement battle at Parc y Scarlets. Camo Texans Jerseys .Scarlets came back from 8-7 down at the break to control the second half and leave the defending champions still looking for their first league point of this campaign.Williams went over either side of half-time with both tries converted by outside-half Rhys Patchell, who added a drop goal. Connachts try came from wing Niyi Adeolokun with Jack Carty kicking a penalty.This was a bottom of the table clash with Scarlets having lost their opening three games of the season and defending champions Connacht having suffered heavy home defeats against Glasgow and Ospreys.Aaron Shingler returned at blindside flanker with Aled Davies coming in at scrum-half to replace Gareth Davies, who had a virus.Connacht made seven changes from the team that played in the Zebre game which got abandoned because of torrential rain. And the inclement weather in Llanelli did not help two sides low on confidence.?Connacht just about edged a mistake-ridden first half with Scarlets cause not helped by Aled Thomas wayward kicking, the full-back missing three penalties inside the first 20 minutes.Those misses proved crucial as centre Bundee Aki broke into Scarlets 22 and when the ball was moved right, Adeolokun went over in the corner. Carty missed the conversion.Matters did not get much better for Scarlets when Patchell kicked his penalty attempt to the corner into the dead ball area. But Carty missed a penalty attempt at the other end before Scarlets broke their duck to go into the lead briefly when wing Williams ran in to finish off a move begun by a Shingler break, with Patchell converting.Their 7-5 lead only lasted three minutes before Carty kicked a final minute penalty after skipper Ken Owens had disrupted a Connacht maul illegally.In the second half wing Steff Evans went closest to scoring a try but with Scarlets still trailing the Welsh region brought on Scott Williams in a reorganised backline.Scarlets began to play on the front foot with scrum-half Aled Davies and Owens combining well before Williams went over in the left corner.The conversion was put over from the touchline by Patchell, who also kicked a 71st minute drop-goal to put his side nine points ahead to make sure they walked away with the points. Elite Texans Jerseys .Y. - New Orleans forward Anthony Davis was chosen Friday to replace the injured Kobe Bryant in the NBA All-Star game that will be played in his home city. Cheap Texans Jerseys .

Kuznetsov, who was selected by the Capitals in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, has been playing for his hometown team Chelyabinsk Traktor of the KHL. CLEMSON, S.C. -- When Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables learned the Tigers were facing Virginia Tech for the Atlantic Coast Conference title, he had a strong message for his players.No. 3 Clemson (11-1; No. 3 College Football Playoff) tries to penetrate the defense of No. 19 Virginia Tech (9-3; No. 23 CFP) on Saturday night in the ACC championship game.Were going to have to play our butts off on defense because I know our offense is going to have to play its butts off, Venables said of Hokies counterpart, Bud Foster. Nothings going to come easy.It rarely does for opponents when facing the game plans of Venables or Foster, two of college footballs best at what they do. Clemsons defense leads the ACC and is eight in the FBS with 307 yards allowed. Virginia Tech is close behind, fourth in the league and 19th overall at 332 yards per game allowed, perhaps more remarkable in a year many figured would be a transition under first-year coach Justin Fuente.But one of Fuentes earliest moves was holding onto Foster, who won the Broyles Award in 2006 as the college footballs top assistant.Foster is glad to maintain his role in Virginia Techs program .Ive been a part of this thing for 30 years now and I like that, Foster said.If Foster wasnt effective, though, he would not be the longest-tenured Bowl Subdivision defensive coordinator at 22 seasons and counting.Virginia Tech defensive end Ken Ekanem said keeping Foster meant the Hokies would not surrender their championship goals to a coaching change.Foster has kept the Hokies humming as they were while winning four ACC titles between 2004 and 2010. Among Power Five conference teams, only Michigan and Wisconsin have been better at stopping opponents on third down than Virginia Tech.I dont ever look forward to going against Bud Foster, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said.The one thing that I know Im going to see is a group thats going to play incredibly disciplined. Theyre going to play hard, with great efforrt. Womens Texans Jerseys. Theyre going to play physical and tough. Theyre going to tackle well, and theyre going to play with a relentless mindset, and thats their DNA.Clemson can be just as relentless under Venables, an unrestrained personality on the sidelines who often needs a staffer to pull him back off the field as he wildly runs his defense.Linebacker Ben Boulware calls him wired. Venables, under the alias Jimmy Greenbeans , plays scout team quarterback in prepping his defenders to make sure things are right. Coach V is intense, defensive end Christian Wilkins said.Venables was hired from Oklahoma after the 2011 season and Clemsons 70-33 Orange Bowl debacle against West Virginia. Since, hes steadily built a group of fast, fiery defenders adept at stopping the run and the pass. They lead the ACC with 16 interceptions and are second with 42 sacks. The Tigers are tied for second nationally with 104 tackles for loss.And he did it this season after six of his starters, five who were underclassmen, were taken in the NFL draft.Im definitely proud of our guys, Clemson senior linebacker Ben Boulware said. Weve been very focused the whole season, especially the latter part of the season.The Tigers have picked things up on defense the past two weeks after giving up a season-high 43 points and 464 yards, their second highest total of the year, in a loss to Pitt on Nov. 12. Clemson has yielded only 20 points and 415 yards combined in easy wins over Wake Forest and South Carolina.Venables is up for the Broyles Award this season, his second straight year as a finalist.Hes honored to share the defensive spotlight this week with Foster. He doesnt chase money or (job) titles and has chosen to stay the course, Venables said.
