Manchester United eased the pressu

WEST BROMWICH, England -- Manchester United eased the pressure on manager David Moyes following a comfortable 3-0 win over relegation-threatened West Brom on Saturday in the English Premier League. After a week that saw Moyes write to fans -- addressing the difficult season that has seen the club exit both domestic cup competitions and struggle in the Champions League -- his side responded in a commanding fashion. "We were more creative and created more opportunities and we played well today. Overall, our play merited to go in front and, when we did, we controlled chunks of the game," said a relieved Moyes. Moyes counterpart Pepe Mel admitted his future was now out of his hands after failing to secure a single win in seven matches since taking over at The Hawthorns. "I dont know that, it doesnt depend on me," said Mel when asked about his future prospects. The Baggies secured a shock 2-1 victory in Manchester earlier in the season -- their first at Old Trafford since 1978 -- and had been aiming to do the double over United. Morgan Amalfitano was denied by David De Gea shortly before the half-hour mark, with the United stopper saving his header at the near post, following Chris Brunts left-wing cross. Seconds later at the other end, Ben Foster was called upon, tipping Rafaels header onto the bar after Adnan Januzajs delivery. Phil Jones opened the scoring for the visitors in the 34th minute, heading past Foster courtesy of an expert free kick from Robin Van Persie. Albion keeper Foster then made a mess of an attempted clearance, as he raced off his line to intercept a ball for Van Persie. The England international miscued his kick and the ball bounced up onto his hand outside the area. Referee Jonathan Moss quickly dismissed any appeals for Foster to be sent off. United doubled its lead after the interval following a fluid move. A neat exchange between Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata saw the latter roll the ball wide for Rafael, and his cross was met by a completely unmarked Rooney in the 65th. Substitute Danny Welbeck added a third in the 82nd minute following another well-worked move that once again involved Mata and Rooney. "We were hurt after losing to Olympiakos and we wanted to come and show everyone were a good team," Rooney said. He added: "Well fight for our shirt and for our place in the team. We played with great energy and we always looked a threat. The goals were well deserved and there maybe could have been more." Michael Carrick praised his teammates efforts. "It was all about the result. We wanted to bounce back, it seems a long time since the last game and we were ready for today," Carrick said. "It was important, we needed the three points." The win moves United into sixth place, level on 48 points with Moyes former club Everton. Defeat leaves West Brom in 17th place, a point clear of the relegation zone. Victor Salako Jersey .

Sweeting claimed a berth in the Page playoffs on Friday, beating Tracy Horgan of Sudbury, Ont., 5-3 in one of a pair of womens C-Event finals at the Olympic curling pre-trials. "It feels great," said Sweeting, who will face Calgarys Cheryl Bernard on Saturday. "We played really well today and we want to keep it up tomorrow and put ourselves in a position today. Thats what we did today. The team played really well, so to come out on top is confidence-boosting for sure." On Friday night, Sweeting had a tight game going with Horgan, who represented Ontario at the 2012 Scotties Tournament of Hearts, through six ends. But with Horgan holding a slim 2-1 lead, Sweeting was able to make a clutch hit to score a game-changing three, and never looked back, although she needed to make a delicate tap with her final rock of the 10th end to nail down the win. Bernard, meanwhile, prevailed 10-8 in an extra end over Cathy Auld of Mississauga, Ont., in a topsy-turvy affair that saw Bernard race to a 5-2 lead through four ends, then fall behind 8-6 through nine. But Bernard made a spectacular triple takeout to score a game-tying deuce in the 10th, and then stole the winning pair in 11 when Auld was wide on her game-winning draw to bite the button. The winner of the Sweeting-Bernard game will move into Sundays qualifying game for the Roar of the Rings Canadian curling trials in Winnipeg -- the event that will decide Canadas teams for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.dddddddddddd "We were definitely here to win," said Sweeting. "Were in a position to do that, so we have definitely met our expectations." The first womens Trials qualifier will be decided Saturday night between A-Event winner Kelly Scott of Kelowna, B.C., and B-Event winner Renee Sonnenberg of Grande Prairie, Alta. The loser of that game will play the Sweeting-Bernard winner. In mens play, reigning Brier champ Brad Jacobs of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., ran his win streak to four games on Friday night with a 9-6 win over Saskatoons Steve Laycock in the B-Event final. That set up a tantalizing Page playoff A-B game Saturday against A-Event winner John Morris and his Kelowna/Vernon, B.C., team. Jacobs took control of his game Friday night by scoring three in the fifth end, and then took advantage of a Laycock miscue in the ninth to score a deuce out of thin air. "Mission accomplished," said Jacobs. "Were in that A-B game, we have two shots to go to the Trials. We really came out and played well today, and we got a few breaks honestly. But sometimes you need those breaks to get the wins, and well take it." In C-Event play, meanwhile, Jake Higgs of Glencoe, Ont., stole a big deuce in the eighth end -- the turning point in an 8-7 win over Joe Frans of Bradford, Ont. Higgs advanced to a C-Event semifinal clash with 2006 Olympic gold-medallist Brad Gushue of St. Johns, N.L., while Frans was eliminated with the loss.
