CALGARY - The Calgary Stampeders re-signed veteran long-snapper Randy Chevrier on Thursday. Todd Heap Jersey .Chevrier, a 37-year-old Montreal native, was slated to become a free agent Feb. 15.Chevrier played in all 18 regular-season games last year without making an errant snap while registering nine special-teams tackles. He also played in Calgarys 35-13 loss to Saskatchewan in the West final.Chevrier has appeared in 157 career games with Calgary."Randy has always been a reliable performer at one of the more underrated roles on a football team," head coach/GM John Hufnagel said in a statement. "In addition to his important work on special teams, his work ethic and experience makes him one of our leaders in the locker room."Chevrier joined the Stampeders in 2005 after two seasons with Edmonton.         Corey Harris Jersey .S. womens soccer team to a 2-0 win over China in Colorado in the afternoon. Ben Powers Jersey .C. -- The Steve Smith era in Carolina is over.CARSON, Calif. -- Although the Los Angeles Galaxy opened their MLS title defence with the result Landon Donovan wanted, hes hoping they dont regret their missed chances to make it even better.Sean Franklin scored on a dramatic 27-yard strike just after halftime, and the Galaxy began their run at a third straight league championship with a 1-0 victory over Real Salt Lake on Sunday night in the first leg of the Western Conference semifinals.Franklins first goal in more than five months provided a small advantage for the third-seeded Galaxy when the clubs head to Utah on Thursday for the second leg.The Galaxy were good, dominating possession and effectively shuttering Reals attack, but they could have been even better. Donovan and Robbie Keane had numerous chances up front throughout the match, but repeatedly failed to provide additional cushion for the Galaxy."We put a lot of pressure on them throughout the night, so theres going to be some cracks," Donovan said. "Robbie and I need to do a better job with our counterattacks. Usually were better than that. I have a feeling were going to have a lot more chances Thursday as the game goes on as they open up and expose themselves, and were fine with that."Jaime Penedo posted his fifth shutout in 10 MLS matches for the Galaxy, who are in search of their league-record fifth MLS Cup title.Los Angeles is trying to become the first MLS team to win three consecutive titles despite losing two key components of its previous championship teams: star midfielder David Beckham and goal-scorer Mike Magee. The Galaxy are in prime position to make that run, but a couple of extra goals would have helped from an otherwise one-sided game.Keane barely missed a goal on a breakaway in the 85th minute, pushing a low shot just wide of the far post. The Irish international star scored 16 MLS goals for the second straight regular season."We certainly left a few chances out there, but we cant score every time," Keane said. "I wwasnt connecting with the ball properly. Sam Koch Jersey.  You have nights like this. Its not something Im going to lose any sleep over."Salt Lake, which had a four-game unbeaten streak and a lengthy break before the playoffs, might have a sleepless night after an ineffective performance at StubHub Center. Los Angeles largely controlled the flow against second-seeded Salt Lake in a matchup of franchises with three of the last four MLS titles between them."On a different night, Keane and Donovan are going to kill you on those," Real coach Jason Kreis said. "We werent good enough. We gave the ball away cheaply so many times in so many dangerous spots. ... Players need to be better. Were just missing some simple passes. Our better players need to be better, and they will."Keane and Donovan both missed on impressive runs in the opening minutes, and Reals Chris Schuler slid in from behind to knock the ball off Donovans foot at the goalmouth in the 42nd minute.But Franklin thrilled the Galaxys lively sellout crowd in the 47th minute when he collected an errant pass from Keane well outside the penalty area and put a rocket of a shot inside Nick Rimandos left post.Franklin, a stalwart defender, hadnt scored since May 26."The ball just came out on top of the box, and I had time and space to hit it," Franklin said. "Once I opened my eyes up, the ball was in the back of the net."Real had its best chance in the 80th minute, but substitute forward Devon Sandoval fell down on contact with a Los Angeles defender while closing in on Luis Gils pass in front of the Galaxy goal.Los Angeles entered the playoffs unbeaten in four straight games after allowing just one goal in its entire October schedule. The Galaxy have never lost in the two-leg conference semifinals since MLS adopted the playoff format in 2003, advancing eight times.These clubs met in the MLS Cup final in 2009, with Real Salt Lake winning its only league title on penalty kicks.        '''
