Scrum-half Tom Kessell came off the bench to rescue victory for Northampton as they registered only their second home Aviva Premiership win of the season.Two struggling sides produced a mistake-ridden encounter but an exciting finish, with Kessells try with 10 minutes to go following a Louis Picamoles offload proving decisive in a 23-20 home victory.A Picamoles converted try and Stephen Myler penalty had given Northampton a 13-3 half-time lead - but tries from Jacob Rowan and Charlie Sharples plus seven points from Greig Laidlaw had put Gloucester 20-16 ahead with 21 minutes to go.It would have been a rare win at Franklins Gardens for the visitors but Northampton roused themselves to snatch victory, although the performance again raised more questions than answers after a poor start to the campaign.Northampton were slipshod from the off, losing their first two lineouts, and from the second Gloucester kicked ahead for Matt Scott to trap Ben Foden over the ball - but Laidlaw missed his kick.George North thought he had opened the scoring on 14 minutes, bursting though on the 10-metre line - but referee Tom Foley ruled Harry Mallinders inside pass to the Welshman was forward.From the restart Scott again won a penalty by getting over Foden, but Laidlaw missed again. Both sides were making mistakes and a dropped ball by James Hook was punished.From the scrum Foden broke on the short side and Picamoles picked up to drive for the line. He was stopped just short but the weight of the support behind pushed him over, Foley ruled after watching the big screen replays. Myler converted to give the home side a 7-0 lead in the 27th minute and two minutes later he added a penalty.Laidlaw finally converted a penalty at the third attempt, but a collapsed scrum saw Myler restore the 10-point lead at the break.A missed lineout on the Gloucester 22 saw Northampton lose possession and when Foden missed Laidlaws high kick the visitors pounced.Billy Twelvetrees picked up the bouncing ball and it was moved sharply to the right wing where flanker Rowan powered through a tackle to score in the corner. Laidlaw converted to give the visitors a much-needed boost and make it 13-10.Myler responded with a third penalty, but from the restart Gloucester caught Lee Dickson dawdling at a ruck to force a scrum.From it, the visitors won a penalty which Laidlaw converted. Just before the visitors were ahead, through Sharples.His opposite wing Jonny May made the break in midfield and some great hands from Ben Morgan opened up the right flank for Sharples to slip George Norths tackle and score.Laidlaw converted to stretch the lead to four points. Northampton almost created an instant response, as Foden burst through and sent Rory Hutchinson sidewinding towards the line, only to be hauled down by Richard Hibbard five metres short.With 10 minutes to go, though, Picamoles peeled off a lineout drive and offloaded for replacement Kessell to touch down. Myler made it 23-20.Hook was short with a penalty from the halfway line - but when Picamoles dropped the ball with a minute to go Gloucester had another chance. They got to within 10 metres of the line - but Kessell was there to get over the ball and win a penalty to end the game. Falcons Jerseys Sale . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. Wholesale Falcons Jerseys . PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.cheapatlantafalconsjerseys.com/ . The Australian is competing in his final season in Formula One and still looking for his first win this year. He will look to end Vettels run of six straight race wins on Sunday. Webber, who is fifth in the championship, earned his second pole from the past three races and 13th of his career. Authentic Falcons Jerseys . -- Five former Kansas City Chiefs players who were on the team between 1987 and 1993 filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming the team hid and even lied about the risks of head injuries during that time period when there was no collective bargaining agreement in place in the NFL. Falcons Jerseys Shop . Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 for the Celtics, who nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead. Sullingers 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnetts first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season. WACO, Texas -- Kalani Brown is 20 pounds lighter this season, and Baylors 6-foot-7 sophomore post player is moving smoothly up and down the court. And shes dominating on both ends for the second-ranked Lady Bears.Brown set career highs with 25 points, 19 rebounds and six assists and Baylor took over after halftime on way to an 84-70 victory over ninth-ranked UCLA on Monday night.My game is elevated, said Brown, the Louisiana native who said she ate healthier and worked extra throughout the offseason. Being able to take off getting my second wind, it feels really good.UCLA coach Cori Close put it simply: Kalani Brown was a hand full.Baylor had trailed 48-41 at halftime, but got even in the first 2 minutes of the third quarter. Alexis Prince hit a 3-pointer before Alexis Jones and Brown each had baskets, and assisted each other.Up by only two going to the fourth quarter, a layup by Jones soon after that started a 14-0 run over a 5-minute span for the Lady Bears (2-0). That spurt included a 13-foot straight-up jumper for Brown, who finished 12-of-15 shooting.Asked if it was the kind of overall game she expected of Brown, who also matched her career high with five blocked shots, Baylor coach Kim Mulkey responded, Yes, quite frankly. ... Kalani was one of the guys in the Oregon State game at the end of the year that wasnt afraid to get in there and bang with you. Yeah, thats why she stayed on the floor.Jordin Canada led UCLA (1-1) with 23 points, while Monique Billings had 16 points with 10 rebounds. Kari Korver had 13 points.Preseason All-America forward Nina Davis, Prince and Jones each had 15 points for Baylor. All played the entire second half, when Baylor outscored UCLA 43-22, and Kristy Wallace played the entire game.Our defense, not only picked it up in intensity, we just had positioning where we were smarter, Mulkey said. And I just think that you went with the most experienced, veteran players that could produce in a big game.BIG PICTUREUCLA: While the Bruins played like a top-10 team most of the first half, they just didnt have a big body to match up with Brown.dddddddddddd. After six 3-pointers (on 15 shots), helped UCLA take as much as an 11-point lead in the first half, they were 0-for-7 from long range after halftime. They came out in the second half and exerted their will, Close said of Baylor.Baylor: With consecutive games against top-10 opponents Mulkey leaned on the returning players. The three freshmen for the Lady Bears are going to be standout players, but Lauren Cox was 0-for-4 shooting with two rebounds in 4 minutes, and Natalie Chou was 0-for-1 with two rebounds in 12 minutes. Juicy Landrum didnt even play. All three got significant action in the season-opening rout over Houston Baptist.POLL IMPLICATIONSBaylor certainly lived up to its No. 2 ranking against another top-10 team, and gets another quick test at No. 3 UConn. UCLA has a chance to recover with the next two games at home and could stay in the top 10 with a couple of wins.BIG BOARDSThe Lady Bears had a 52-25 rebounding edge. Take out Browns 19 (including eight offensive boards), and Baylor still would have a 33-25 advantage.MAYBE IN MARCH?All the credit to Baylor, they showed great experience and poise, and I hope we get to play them again, Close said.REALLY, COACHWhen Mulkey was asked how blunt she was with her halftime message, she said, Its too early in the year to get ugly with them. Brown had a grin on her face when she rolled her eyes. Asked if she was getting soft, Mulkey then replied, Im just mellowing in my old age.UP NEXTUCLA returns home to play at home twice in three days. The Bruins play Southern University on Friday, then host Cal Poly on Sunday.Baylor hits the road for the first time and plays another top-10 opponent. The Lady Bears play Thursday at third-ranked UConn. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
