BUDAPEST, Hungary -- Fernando Alonso is treating McLarens promising Friday practice performance with caution after he and teammate Jenson Button finished seventh and eighth in FP2 for the Hungarian Grand Prix. .Mercedes appears to be in a class of its own at the Hungaroring, with Red Bull and Ferrari in a battle for the second and third rows of the grid. McLaren was the fourth quickest team in both practice sessions on Friday, but Alonso warned that Friday pace has not always transferred to high grid positions once the Mercedes-powered teams switch to their qualifying settings.We were 7th today but well have to see how it goes, he said. We were up there in Silverstone and just made into Q3 to qualify 10th. I think well be in the battle to get into Q3 and hopefully well be in the top ten as that should give us an advantage in the race.Lets see what happens tomorrow, as others do improve a lot when they get full use of their engines in qualifying, especially the Mercedes. Here the engine counts a bit less, so hopefully they wont have that much of an advantage and well be able to stay up there.McLaren had to fit a used Honda power unit to Alonsos car between practice sessions after his new one from Silverstone developed a problem.The first session went rather well, there were no issues, but while we were in the technical meeting a Honda engineer came up to tell us it would be better to change the Power Unit. So they put back the one I used in Austria and Azerbaijan, and it ran with no problems in FP2, so it will stay in the car for tomorrow.Of course its bad news to have to change a Power Unit that has done just one Grand Prix, in Silverstone, but its not a step backward, its something normal. .

The hearings will be held from July 20 to Aug. 4 in Toronto.Barrie has scored 102 points over the past two seasons with the Avalanche, becoming one of the leagues top young offensive defensemen. Colorados inability to reach a long-term deal has prompted trade speculation around Barrie, who made $3.2 million last year.Kreider had his second straight 21-goal season for the Rangers, while Hoffman led the Senators with 29 goals last season.Other arbitration filers are hoping to benefit from arbitration after setbacks. St. Louis forward Jaden Schwartz missed most of his 22-point season with a serious ankle injury.Palmieri will be expecting a hefty raise after leading the Devils in scoring last season with 30 goals and 27 assists in his first year with New Jersey.Philadelphias Brayden Schenn filed after setting career highs with 26 goals and 33 assists.

With the majority of internationals from Ireland and Wales rested over the weekend, our British & Irish Lions team of the week takes a slightly English feel to it.BACKS15. Alex GoodeHis kicking and running makes him a great threat from full-back and his tackle on Peter Betham prevented the Tigers from getting back in the game, having set up Sean Maitland for a try earlier.14.Semesa RokoduguniPossibly Englands answer to?Nemani Nadolo, as the winger was exciting to watch during Baths win. His stunning try at the end and his weaving past players was exciting to watch.13. Joe MarchantHe was impressive to watch in Quins victory, which included a 70-metre intercept try. Although just 20 he is taking every chance given to him at Harlequins.12. Ben TeoA recent call-up to the England team was followed by a brilliant performance in defeat to Harlequins. He was a constant threat, rampaging through the Worcester defence, players bouncing off him, while his footwork was equally impressive.11. Tim VisserAn interception saw Visser run 60 metres to set up Danny Care for the opening try for Quins. He grabbed a try in the final moments having had an earlier chalked off after obstruction from Care.10 Owen FarrellHis main rival for the England spot number 10 shirt, George Ford, had a difficult game from the kicking tee was 0/2 from the boot while Farrell was exquisite once more. With the Irish & Welsh fly-halves rested, he didnt have much competition.9 Danny CareHe was outstanding in providing quick ball to the Harlequins backs and provided an option to snipe around the breakdown. Very lively and added a try in their victory at Bristol.FORWARDS1. Mako VunipolaOn a day where both Joe Marler and Vunipola were both sin-binned, the Saracens front row gets the nod with another immense display, with pressure at the breakdown creating the penalty which led to his brothers try. 2. Jamie GeorgeShould injuries to other key player occur, George could be a more than adequate replacement. His work was done by the time Saracens subbed him in the second-half, as they led comfortably.3. Mike RossIf the former Harlequins front row continues his form, he could win a surprise inclusion. He would need to get back into the Irish set up. His pace has always been an issue, but his scrummaging has been key for Leinster.4. Joe LaunchburyAnother man of the match performance for Launchbury is set to give him a brilliant platform for claiming a starting birth for England.?His ball-carrying in attack and his resolute defending were evident in Wasps win.5. Dave AttwoodHe was outstanding for Bath, in defence and in driving forward. He was ever present in defence and attack and one reason why they kept Exeter to a solitary try.6. Peter OMahonyConsidering it was his first 80 minutes back for Munster, it was an impressive outing, as he carried well and as expected, put his body on the line continuously.7. Sean OBrienAnother Irishman making a comeback after a long lay-off through injury, OBrien did well against Connacht, despite a yellow card.8.Billy VunipolaImpressive once more for Sarries as he crashed over for their third try of the game. He was in devastating form as he made 24 carries and driving Ben Youngs back was another highlight in defence.

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Northwestern finally found some points. Josh Bell Jersey . Then the defense made a big play to secure a much-needed win.Justin Jackson ran for 171 yards and Austin Carr caught three touchdown passes as Northwestern held on to beat Iowa 38-31?on Saturday.Trae Williams interception in the final minute sealed the win for the Wildcats (2-3, 1-1 Big Ten), who scored touchdowns on three straight drives in the second half after Iowa ran off 17 straight points to take the lead.For us to weather that storm and then not to flinch after they went on a 17-0 run, I thought showed some maturity from this group and then to get the finish was critically important, Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said. Weve got to squeeze everything out of this group. I think theyre coming along for us.C.J. Beathard threw for 204 yards and a touchdown for Iowa (3-2, 1-1), which snapped its nine-game regular-season Big Ten winning streak.The Wildcats -- ranked as the worst scoring offense in the Big Ten and 125th out of 128 FBS teams coming into Saturday -- exploded for nearly as many points against Iowa as they scored in the last three games combined.Northwesterns Clayton Thorson threw for 164 yards. Carr -- his favorite target and the Big Tens receptions leader -- has caught a touchdown pass in four straight games. Hes the first Wildcat player to do that since 2000.Jackson became the fourth player in Northwestern history to reach 3,000 career yards. The juniors 58-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter regained the lead for the Wildcats.Defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo had four of Northwesterns six sacks.The Hawkeyes had two chances to tie the game in the final seven minutes, but were forced to punt and then Williams intercepted Beathard at Northwesterns 36-yard line.Iowas mistakes -- pass protection and penalties -- were costly. The Hawkeyes had 70 penalty yards, including consecutive personal fouls on Northwesterns last scoring drive.Were not good enough to give up 15 yards, whether its a sack, a penalty, Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said. Were just not good enough, and not many teams are.Iowas LeShun Daniels Jr. and Akrum Wadley combined for 107 rushing yards and three touchdowns. Wadley has seven touchdowns in three games against Northwestern.THE TAKEAWAYNORTHWESTERN: The 38-point outburst is what Fitzgerald needed to see after the Wildcats totaled just 65 points in their first four games. Northwestern took advantage of good field position early. It had three scoring drives of 75-plus yards in the second half.The key was limiting mistakes. Fitzgerald pointed to holding penalties and turnovers as reasons why the offense has sputtered. The Wildcats had one fumble and only one penalty against Iowa.The offense has been there, but I just think weve had self-inflicted wounds, Fitzgerald said.IOWA: Beathard didnt have time to find targets in his first game without top receiver Matt VandeBerg, who broke his foot this week in practice. Beathard was sacked six times and had to scramble to throw most of the game.Senior Riley McCarron had career-highs with eight catches and 78 yards. He could emerge as Beathards top target.INJURY REPORTNorthwesterns Brett Walsh was carted off the field during a scary moment in the third quarter, but officials said tests came back negative. Walsh is expected to travel back to Evanston, Illinois, on Saturday night.Walsh, a junior linebacker, was hurt covering a kickoff. The game was delayed almost 10 minutes while medical personnel attended to Walsh. He was put on a stretcher and carted off to the locker room.NOTABLESNorthwestern had lost four of the previous five games in the series. The Wildcats won in Kinnick Stadium for the first time since 2009. .Iowa linebacker Josey Jewell had a career-high 16 tackles. Jewell has had double-digit tackles in three straight games. .Iowa kicker Keith Duncan hit a career-long 24-yard field goal.UP NEXTNORTHWESTERN: The Wildcats have a bye next week before visiting No. 17 Michigan State on?Oct. 15.IOWA: The Hawkeyes travel to Minnesota with hopes of holding onto the Floyd of Rosedale trophy. Iowa got whipped 52-14 in its last trip to Minnesota two years ago. Starling Marte Jersey .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have recalled forward Kevin Porter and defenceman Chad Ruhwedel from the minors as part of a five-player roster shuffle made by the NHLs worst team. Tyler Glasnow Jersey . 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. . Oyama had six birdies and two bogeys at Kintetsu Kashikojima in the event also sanctioned by the Japan LPGA Tour. "I have been having this neck ache thats been affecting my golf recently," Oyama said. RIO DE JANEIRO -- In back-to-back games, the U.S. women were within range of upset wins over Australia and New Zealand, the two leading contenders for the first rugby sevens gold medal ever awarded at the Olympics.By the end of an eventful Sunday, though, the semifinal pairings reflected the status quo in womens sevens with the top four teams in the world series vying for medals.World series winner Australia rebounded from a surprising 12-12 draw with the United States in the last game of the pool stage to trounce Spain 24-0 and set up a semifinal match against Canada, which rallied to beat France 15-5 in the quarterfinals.Britain advanced 26-7 over Fiji and then watched as semifinal opponent New Zealand struggled to put away the Americans 5-0, the only points coming from a try by world series try-scoring leader Portia Woodman just before halftime.I told them that they were true Olympians. They represented USA really, really well, U.S. womens coach Richie Walker said of his squad. We played the No. 1 and No. 2 nations in the world today but I saw no fear. We hung with the best in the world. We drew with the No. 1 and we just lost by five points to the No. 2.The Americans lost 12-7 to Fiji in their opening game Saturday, adding to the pressure on them in the last Pool A match to beat Australia on Sunday. Winger Jessica Jevelet scored two tries to give the Americans a 12-5 lead going into the last minute, but Emma Tonegato reached over to score her second try of the match for the Aussies and Chloe Dalton converted after the full-time siren for a draw.Jevelet was again in the thick of it against New Zealand. The Americans had a scoring opportunity shut down with three minutes to go when Jevelet was tackled late as she attempted to chase a kick into the in-goal that could have leveled the game. Tylia Nathan-Wong was yellow carded and sent from the field, but the New Zealanders survived unscathed.The U.S. and New Zealand squads played practicce matches against each other in Florida leading up to the Olympics, and the Americans obviously picked up some intel. Willie Stargell Jersey. They didnt play us this hard in Florida. It was a nice surprise, and hard, Woodman said. We made it hard for ourselves, not playing to our strengths, getting a bit too ahead of ourselves, and wanting to score on the first phase when we needed to play three or four.But were in medal contention, so (were) excited.The Americans will have to settle for playing in classification matches for fifth-eighth places along with the other quarterfinal losers.It probably hurts right now because theyre out of medal contention, but still we have something to fight for, Walker said. We want to finish No. 5.Thats the best day rugby-wise, not results-wise, that Ive ever seen from the girls. So Im really proud.Australia coach Tim Walsh said the Americans gave his team the kick up the pants that we needed going into the quarterfinals, where Charlotte Caslick scored twice and Tonegato added another to each increase their tournament tallies to six, equal with Woodman.The top three teams from the sevens world series appeared more vulnerable on Sunday than Britain, a team containing 11 members of the England team which placed fourth in the world series. The British won all three group games comfortably, including a 24-0 victory over Canada, and outscored Fiji four tries to one.The Canadians entered as the likely bronze medalists, but now face Australia in the semifinals -- which doesnt entirely bother them. Canada beat the Australians to win the last stop on the world series last season and nudge ahead of England for third place.The Olympics are a whole new thing for us and were still kind of getting used to that, Canada back Bianca Farella said. I think its an unconscious thing but tomorrow we start fresh.
