RIO DE JANEIRO -- A three-minute momentum shift triggered one of the biggest Olympic wins in United States womens field hockey.Agustina Albertarrio appeared to break a scoreless tie two minutes into the third period, but the Argentines goal was nullified. A few minutes later, Katie Reinprecht slipped one under the goalkeeper to give the Americans the lead. The United States went on to defeat No. 2 Argentina 2-1 Saturday in its opening match.United States coach Craig Parnham said his team handled the swing well.Those can sort of flip a game on its head, but there still was a lot of hockey to be played after that, and I thought we did a nice job of continuing to play, he said. It was important for us to keep the pressure on Argentina, and I thought we did that for the second part of the game.Reinprechts shot didnt generate much power.That first goal we scored, if you saw it coming, youre thinking, `Thats probably not going to go in, United States goalkeeper Jackie Briggs said. But you just never know. Youve got to shoot it.Michelle Kasold scored on a penalty corner with 10:26 to play to put the United States up 2-0. Delfina Merino got Argentina on the board with 3:27 remaining, but the Americans held on.The United States dominated much of the second half after a rough start.I think the first period, we started a little slow, maybe a little bit tentative, Parnham said. Weve got some players that have not played on this stage before. It may be better attributed to that.Argentina is among the sports greatest powers. The Argentines won the Champions Trophy final over No. 1-ranked Netherlands in June and entered this tournament with confidence.The United States has had success in some of their biggest matchups with the Argentines. The Americans beat them during the 2012 London Games before Argentina eventually recovered and earned silver. The United States also beat Argentina last year in the gold medal match at the Pan American Games.The Americans havent medaled since 1984, when they claimed bronze in Los Angeles. The United States gained momentum this year by placing third in the Champions Trophy in June, and its No. 5 world ranking is its highest ever.The Americans spent most of the first period defending their side of the field, but they never broke, and the match was scoreless after the first 15 minutes, despite Argentinas 6-0 shot advantage.The United States controlled the action through much of the second period, with six shots to Argentinas two. The Americans couldnt break through, and the match remained scoreless at halftime.We didnt play our best hockey and we came out 0-0, and thats always a good thing, to be able to not play your best and still not get scored on, Briggs said.Argentina manufactured 13 shots in the match, but Briggs was up for the challenge.Jackies done a nice job in there tonight for us, and for the rest of this week and the next two weeks of this tournament, were going to need her to be on song, Parnham said. She weathered the early storm and did well for us and kept us in the game.The United States will play No. 3 Australia on Monday.If we play our game and stick to our game plan, we can beat anybody, Briggs said.---Follow Cliff Brunt on Twitter: (at)CliffBruntAP Joffrey Lauvergne Jersey . -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No. Custom San Antonio Spurs Jerseys . Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday night. http://www.shopspursauthentic.com/Cheap-Derrick-White-Spurs-Jersey/ . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. Kawhi Leonard Jersey . Kiriasis and brakeman Franziska Fritz finished two runs in one minute 55.41 seconds -- a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of Meyers and Lolo Jones, who likely bolstered her Olympic hopes by helping give USA-1 a huge push in the second heat. Danny Green Jersey . LOUIS -- The New Orleans Saints looked like a team playing out the string. SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- Jimmy Walker overcame a few wild tee shots with four birdies on the back nine for a 2-under 68 and a one-shot lead over defending champion Jason Day going into the final round of the rain-plagued PGA Championship.The competition was already shaping up to be a major like no other.Even as Walker and Day were finishing their rounds, the fourth round already had begun on rain-soaked Baltusrol Golf Club. The PGA of America chose not to redo pairings for the final round because it was the only chance to finish by Sunday.Then the PGA decided to play preferred lies for the final round, which had not happened in a major in more than a half-century. That means players will be able to lift, clean and place their balls in closely mown areas.Walker, who was at 11-under 199, was among 10 players who didnt even hit a shot Saturday because of storms that flooded the Lower Course at Baltusrol. He had never contended in a major until this week and went into the final 18 holes having been at least tied for the lead all three rounds.I made a couple of tentative swings early, Walker said. I just said, Trust it, man. Youre swinging it good. Keep the pedal down.The final round figured to be the toughest, especially with the cast of characters behind him.Day surged into the lead with a 75-foot birdie putt on No. 7 from the front to the back of the green,and a tee shot to 4 feet on the par-3 ninth. Walker and Robert Streb, who shot a 63 on Friday to share the 36-hole lead, began to struggle off the tee and on the green, both dropping two shots behind Day at one point.Day settled into a string of pars on the easier back nine until finishing with a birdie for a 67. It was his seventh straight round of 68 or better in the PGA Championship.I went a stretch of eight holes without a birdie and I needed one to get some motivation for the fourth round, DDay said.dddddddddddd. But I played some nice golf out there.He is trying to join Tiger Woods as the only players to win the PGA Championship in consecutive years since it went to stroke play in 1958.It would be really nice to get that second major under my belt, Day said. I dont want to win just one for my career.Unlike The Open two weeks ago, this is hardly a two-man race.Henrik Stenson, who won the duel at Royal Troon with a record score in a major, piled up enough birdies on the back nine for a 67 and was two shots behind in his bid to join Ben Hogan as the only players to win back-to-back majors at age 40.Brooks Koepka, playing for the first time since the U.S. Open because of an ankle injury, had a bogey-free 66 and was two shots behind. A big week by Koepka could all but clinch a spot on his first Ryder Cup team for the U.S.Streb, meanwhile, didnt make his first birdie until the 17th hole, only to three-putt from just inside 8 feet for bogey on the 18th and a 72. He was four shots behind, along with William McGirt (66) and Hideki Matsuyama (67).Jordan Spieth finished with eight straight pars, missing good birdie chances along the way, and had to settle for a 69. That left him seven shots behind, which would require a record-tying comeback at the PGA Championship to have any chance.Patrick Reed also wasted a good opportunity, making double-bogey on the sixth hole and shooting 70 to finish six shots behind.The PGA Championship was trying to avoid its second straight Monday finish at Baltusrol. Phil Mickelson won on a Monday in 2005. Rain began to fall on Sunday as the leaders finished the third round, though play kept going. Any stoppage was sure to mean one more day before the Wanamaker Trophy is handed out.
