OTTAWA -- Brett Mahers first career game-winning field goal was a historic one. Mahers 23-yard field goal with 28 seconds remaining earned the Ottawa Redblacks a thrilling 18-17 win over the Toronto Argonauts on Friday night. The victory was not only the first for the expansion club but came in the first CFL game played in the Canadian capital since 2005. "In my whole career Ive kicked a bunch of field goals but never a game-winner," said the University of Nebraska rookie. "Id never even tried one. "I was just excited to be there and excited to cash it in. Mahers boot, his sixth of the game, came after Swayze Waters connected from 46 yards out to put Toronto ahead 17-15 with 1:33 remaining. It looked like the Argos (1-3) would spoil the party for a TD Place Stadium sellout of 24,000, which included Prime Minister Stephen Harper and explained the presence of sharpshooters on the opposite roofs of the facility. But quarterback Henry Burris calmly moved Ottawa (1-2) 60 yards on six plays to set up Mahers boot in what was anything but just another football game. It marked the first time since November 2005 that Ottawa had hosted a CFL regular-season game and the city hasnt celebrated a Grey Cup championship since 1976. "The atmosphere was great, a blast to be part of," Maher said. "Its a great feeling to win. "If I wouldve had the same night and we wouldve lost, it wouldve been sick." The exciting win capped what was a party atmosphere throughout the contest, with many fans standing and grooving to the tunes during timeouts. Ottawas home opener had been much anticipated, with supporters proudly sporting their colours all week and turning out in droves for the various pre-game festivities and pep rallies. "This crowd support we have here, its definitely going to be a tough place (for opponents) to play," said Burris. "Theres no better fanbase in this league than here in Ottawa. "Redblacks Nation is for real. For the people who arent here and unable to experience this, youre missing out." Thousands entered TD Place Stadium three hours before the opening kickoff to participate in the tailgating festivities. And once fans were allowed to settle into their seats, those on the south side of the stadium resumed the longstanding tradition of chanting "North Side Sucks." However, the entire gathering -- most of which was clad in red -- was on its feet as one, loudly cheering the Redblacks as they took to the field for the pre-game introductions. "That was awesome, the fans were remarkable," said rookie Redblacks head coach Rick Campbell. "I knew the setup of the stadium and how close it is to the field and thought it would be great. "But to experience it firsthand, it really makes a difference for our football team." The night was one of two firsts for Campbell, who also received his inaugural Gatorade shower afterwards. "I was kind of shocked because I was just living in the moment of our football team getting the win," said Campbell, whose father Hugh, the legendary former head coach and GM with the Edmonton Eskimos, was in attendance. "Its an exciting night for us." Despite both offences being inconsistent for much of the night, they did manage to move the ball and make for an exciting finish as Mahers 48-yard field goal at 9:53 of the fourth put Ottawa ahead 15-14. It take after Toronto took a 14-12 advantage on Ricky Rays 20-yard TD strike to Darvin Adams just 43 seconds into the quarter. That was Torontos first TD in eight quarters, dating back to the fourth quarter of its 48-15 home win over Saskatchewan on July 5. The Argos were minus veterans Chad Owens (foot), Andre Durie (clavicle) and Jason Barnes (knee), their top three receivers. Both defences were solid on the night. Toronto recorded five sacks on Burris, but Ottawa did force three turnovers, including Rays first two interceptions of the season. Burris finished 17-of-30 passing for 216 yards while adding 22 yards rushing. Ray was 21-of-37 passing for 298 yards and a TD with the two picks and watched Burris improve to 18-11 in their career head-to-head matchups. Ray also suffered his first loss in six career games against Ottawa. "Ive seen that too many times when hes taken his team down in the last minute and pulled out a victory," Ray said of Burris. "I definitely respect his game, but its tough to give him the ball with the game on the line and be on the sideline watching because he makes a lot of good plays out there." Argos head coach Scott Milanovich said his team gave Burris too much time following Waters field goal. "That (1:33) is forever with Henry Burris back there," Milanovich said. "We just couldnt make it stick. "Its as disappointing a loss Ive had since Ive been here. We have to find a way to win that one, theres no doubt about that." Waters finished with three field goals, a single and convert. Mahers 23-yard field goal at 14:56 of the second quarter earned Ottawa a 9-7 lead in a lacklustre opening half offensively as the kickers accounted for all the scoring. Both offences came close to TDs as Ray underthrew a wide-open John Chiles in the endzone in the first before a streaking Kierrie Johnson got behind Torontos secondary but had Burriss nicely thrown pass go off his outstretched hands. But both offences lacked consistency and finish as Burris , who got little help from his offensive line, was 7-of-12 passing for 75 yards and Ray completed 9-of-16 attempts for 127 yards, but 45 yards came on one completion. For the second time this year, Toronto was victimized by a fake punt that went for a first down. Maher scampered 15 yards on third-and-10 to keep a drive alive in the second that he ultimately capped with a 29-yard field goal at 6:24 to put Ottawa ahead 6-3. NOTES: In their final regular-season game, the Renegades beat Toronto 27-17 on Nov. 5, 2005. Renegades head coach Joe Paopao wore a Hawaiian short on the sidelines, as did his coaching staff and the clubs football operations department. Following the game, Paopao threw his third into the stands . . Burris came into the game needing 65 yards rushing to move ahead of former Rough Riders star Russ Jackson and into fourth in all-time rushing yards by a quarterback. Jackson has 5,122 yards. Retired star Damon Allen, who played for both Ottawa and Toronto over his illustrious career, holds the league record with 11,920 yards. Corey Kluber Jersey .

The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night.

Holiday, a former Eastern Conference All-Star acquired from Philadelphia last summer, has not played because of the shin injury since Jan. Jim Thome Jersey . -- After a year spent travelling the world, Brooks Koepka suddenly is in a position to play a lot more golf at home. ATLANTA -- Billy Horschel showed why he might be the hottest player in golf at the moment with another 4-under 66 on Friday in the Tour Championship. It was his 10th straight round in the 60s. He already has a victory and a runner-up finish in the FedEx Cup playoffs. And now he gets to take on the best player in golf. Rory McIlroy rode three big putts and one bizarre break -- a tee shot landed in a spectators pocket -- on his way to a 65 that left him two shots behind and put him in the final group at East Lake going into the homestretch of the FedEx Cup. At stake for both of them -- along with Chris Kirk -- is a shot at the $10 million bonus. "Im a guy that when I feel good about my game, Ive got some confidence that Im going to figure out some way to play well and post a number," Horschel said. That he has done. Horschel is 35 under par in his last 10 rounds. He was runner-up at the Deutsche Bank Championship two weeks ago, when he squandered a shot to at least get into a playoff by chunking a 6-iron into a hazard. And he followed that with a victory in the BMW Championship at Cherry Hills. And now he has a pair of 66s, putting him at 8-under 132 at East Lake. McIlroy made his only bogey with a buried lie at the face of a bunker on No. 4, causing him to blast out sideways. He bounced back with birdies, and poured it on at the end of his round with a 12-foot par save, a 20-foot birdie and a 25-foot birdie. And then there was his par on the 14th, which looked ordinary only on paper. His tee shot drifted right into the pine trees, clattered around and dropped straight down. No one knew where it went until a fan realized it had fallen into the front pocket of his shorts. PGA Tour rules official Robby Ware made sure the fan had not moved, and McIlroy was given a free drop under Rule 19-1-a. Retrieving the ball? McIlroy wasnt going there. "I know how sweaty my pockets are. Im not going into anyone elses," McIlroy said. "I need to stop hitting it off line. Things happen there." McIlroy was joined by Jason Day, who made bogey on his last hole for a 67; and Kirk, who made two bogeys on the back nine that offset a run of four straight birdies around the turn for a 68. Kirk, Horschel and McIlroy are among the top five seedss in the FedEx Cup, meaning a victory would guarantee the $10 million bonus.dddddddddddd McIlroy seized the No. 1 ranking by winning the British Open, a World Golf Championship and the PGA Championship in successive starts. He was the top seed going into the FedEx Cup, though because the points are reset for East Lake, the 25-year-old from Northern Ireland always knew it would come down to the Tour Championship. As much as he wants to end a great year on a high note, McIlroy appears to be playing with no concerns. "Before coming into these FedEx Cup playoffs ... it was going to be a great season, anyway," he said. "I wanted to cap it off in style, and Ive given myself a chance to do that over the next two days. Im going into this week with nothing to lose. Im the one thats got the two majors this year. Im the one thats had the great season. Those are the guys that are trying to cap off a great season for themselves. "No matter what happens over the weekend, its going to be OK," he said. "But I still want to win this thing." McIlroy and Horschel first mixed it up seven years ago when they were amateurs at the Walker Cup. Horschel beat him in singles on the 18th hole, and the next morning teamed with Rickie Fowler in a foursomes win over McIlroy and Jonny Caldwell. Horschel was shouting and pumping fists, as he always does, and it rubbed McIlroy the wrong way. In the final singles session, McIlroy beat him 4 and 2. That was a long time ago. Neither harbours a grudge. McIlroy has gone on to win four majors at age 25 -- only Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Bobby Jones have done that -- while Horschel picked up his second career win last week. They last played together as pros at the Honda Classic this year, where McIlroy had rounds of 66-63 and Horschel missed the cut. "Hes a good buddy," Horschel said. "If I happen to come out on top and were battling out these next two rounds, that means a lot. The guy won three straight events in a row, and two of them happened to be majors. I think thats pretty impressive. Hes at that stage where when youre able to go toe to toe with one of the best players and the No. 1 ranked player in the world and youre able to come out on top, that gives me a lot of confidence."
