WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Blue Bombers may have handed the Edmonton Eskimos their first loss of the season, but they werent thumping their chests after the 28-16 victory Friday night. Nike Free 6.0 Laufschuhe Rosa Blau Weiß . Buck Pierce threw for two touchdowns and ran one in himself as the Bombers went to 5-1 for the first time since 1987 and stayed in first place in the CFL East Division. The Eskimos dropped to 5-1, but remain atop the West. The victory came in front of a second-straight sold out crowd of 29,533 at Canad Inns Stadium. "Its early, and Ill continue to say that ..." said Pierce, who completed 20-of-27 passes for 242 yards with two TDs and one interception. "Ill celebrate this win tonight and tomorrow, but Ill move on and Ill look at what we need to do to keep this up." Edmonton quarterback Ricky Ray, the leagues top-rated passer going into the game with 10 TDs against one interception, was intercepted three times. Ray finished 17-of-28 for 226 yards and one 22-yard TD toss to Jason Barnes. Two of the interceptions were by Bomber cornerback Brandon Stewart, who also wasnt tooting the horn too loudly. "I dont know if this sends a message," Stewart said. "We just want to come out here every day when were on the field and achieve our personal best, which is execute, run to the football, tackle the football. "If youve got a chance to make a play, make it." Bomber slotback Terrence Edwards notched his fifth TD of the year with a 29-yard catch in a drive aided by a face-mask penalty called on Edmonton during an earlier Edwards reception. Edmonton was flagged 12 times for 118 yards compared to Winnipegs seven penalties for 70 yards. Cory Watson scored a TD with a seven-yard catch, but he wasnt about to boast about marring Edmontons record either. "We havent really done anything yet," said Watson, who had three catches for 43 yards. "We only got two points in the standings. Thats all it is. Defensively were great, but we need to do better on offence." Bomber kicker Justin Palardy missed his first two field-goal attempts, going wide right on a 22-yard try and then wide left on a 32-yard attempt before finally nailing a 33-yarder. Mike Renaud added two punt singles. Aside from Barnes TD -- he finished with a game-high eight catches for 125 yards -- Damon Duval booted field goals from 37 and 21 yards and had a punt single. Renaud added two points to the Esks total when he conceded a safety. Winnipegs first touchdown of the game was only its 10th of the season. It came courtesy of Pierce, who ran a career-high 48 yards into the end zone. It was also the longest run by a Bomber this season. Did he think of sliding during the run? "I slid quite a bit (during the game), but no, there was so much room," said Pierce, who rushed six times for 54 yards. "I was able to outrun a few linebackers and break a tackle and had some good blocks down the field, so once you get rolling that fast, I want to make sure I got into the end zone. "But I was huffing and puffing." The Eskimos also turned the ball over on downs and through a fumble for a total of five turnovers. Winnipeg only scored six points off those mishaps. Through its first five games of the season, Edmonton only had a total of five turnovers. "We just did not play fundamentally sound football," Edmonton head coach Kavis Reed said. "We missed tackles, we dropped balls, we committed penalties." He added it was a "learning lesson" for the squad -- when they have the opportunity to keep a team down, they have to do it. The Eskimos led 11-1 after the first quarter and 14-12 at halftime, but Winnipeg outscored them 14-2 in the third quarter to take a 26-16 lead into the final quarter. "I got frustrated a little bit and tried to force some big plays and they got some turnovers," Ray said. "Weve just got to learn from that and move on. Weve just got to clean up the mistakes were making and move on. Its a long season." Ray was also intercepted by cornerback Jovon Johnson, leading to a single. Esks linebacker Brian Bonner fumbled and lost the ball, a gift the Bombers used for Palardys field goal. Ray was sacked four times, twice by Kenny Mainor and once each by Bryant Turner and Odell Willis, who has a league-leading eight sacks. Pierce was sacked once. Edmonton defensive back Rob Williams grabbed his league-leading fourth interception of the season off a Pierce pass. The turnover led to Duvals 37-yard field goal. Notes -- Bomber running back Fred Reid still hasnt rushed for 100 yards this season. He tallied 96 yards off 19 carries.

LOUIS -- The NHL board of governors has approved the sale of the St.JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Brazils doubles team of Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares upset the top-ranked Mike and Bob Bryan 7-6 (6), 6-7 (7), 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 and kept the United States from clinching the first-round Davis Cup match. The Bryan brothers have been the most successful doubles duo in Davis Cup history, with a record 20 wins and only two losses when playing together. But Melo and Soares beat the U.S. duo for the third time in four meetings overall. "(The Brazilian team) came out with something to prove and played an extremely high level of doubles and made some great gets," U.S. team captain Jim Courier said. "Im sure (our) guys can play at a higher level. Im not sure that those guys can. To their credit, they played great today and they deserved to win." The tone of the match may have been established in the first set when the Bryan brothers held a 5-1 lead in the tiebreaker. They lost the next couple points but won the next point for a 6-3 lead and a triple-set advantage. But they failed to convert on any of the next three chances as the Brazilians gained momentum and won five consecutive points for the set win. With neither side able to break the others serve, the second set also went to a tiebreaker. Brazil looked as if it would jump to a 2-0 set lead when it had three set-point opportunities at 6-3. But this time the Brazilians couldnt convert on any of their chances and when Melo and Soares hit consecutive shots into the net with a 7-7 score, the U.S. team evened the match at one set. Brazil rebounded and went on to win the third and fifth sets to record a win that Soares called, "this ranks number one for sure. Its very speccial. Nike Free 3.0 V3 Laufschuhe Blau Dunkel Blau Weiß. ." The Bryans entered the match with momentum, having captured their 13th Grand Slam title two weeks earlier by winning the Australian Open. "Theres no doubt on paper, theyre a better team than us," Soares said. "But we got a good record against them. "To beat these guys you have to be 110 per cent. Today we showed we were 110 per cent, most important for five sets." The Bryans rallied in the fourth set. They broke Melos serve in the sixth game with Bob Bryans backhand volley winner giving them a 4-2 lead. They went on to hold their serve to close out the set at 6-3. The Bryans lost a chance to gain a break, but couldnt convert two break points in the third game. In the eighth game with Brazil holding a 4-3 lead, things fell apart for the two Americans who lost Mike Bryans serve at love. In the ninth game with the score at 30-30, both Bryans hit shots that sailed long or wide, leaving the Brazilian team and its small but raucous crowd to erupt in celebration. "Hats off to the Brazilians," Bob Bryan said. "I thought they served well pretty much of the four hours. Were obviously disappointed. I feel were capable of playing at a higher level." Attention turns to Sundays two singles matches. John Isner will meet Thomaz Bellucci in the opener with Sam Querrey taking on Thiago Alves if the match is tied 2-2. Isner and Querrey were both straight-set winners in their Friday matches. "(Isner and Querrey) are well-prepared. They come in with three sets under their belt from yesterday which is good for their confidence, not damaging to their physical fitness," Courier said. ' ' '
