  • Rapids, Earthquakes play to scoreless tie

    Updated: Sat, Apr 19, 2014

    COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) — Alan Gordon hit the crossbar in the opening minute for San Jose and that was as close as the Earthquakes and the Colorado Rapids got to scoring in their 0-0 draw Saturday. "It was a good ball, a good ball," Gordon said. "I was able to get free and try to put the ball on target. It was a bit high and hopefully the next time it goes in." Chris Wondolowski's header cleared the crossbar late in the first half for San Jose (0-2-3), which is off to its worst start in 14 seasons. The Earthquakes opened 0-3 as the San Jose Clash in 1998.

    Updated: Sat, Apr 19, 2014

    HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Luke Donald believes he's got the right game on the right course — and is ready to make up for so many near-misses at the RBC Heritage. Donald had an eagle and six birdies to shoot 66 on Saturday and take a two-stroke lead over John Huh after three rounds at Harbour Town Golf Links. The Englishman has done just about everything on Harbour Town the past five times he's played — except win. He fell in a playoff to Brandt Snedeker here in 2011, part of a run of four top-3 finishes since at the tricky, Pete Dye design. Now, he'll carry the lead into the final day and is ready to make it stand up on Sunday. "If I can go out as relaxed and confident as I was today tomorrow," he said.
