EDMONTON - Pauline Bremers goal in the 23rd minute stood up as the winner as Germany eliminated the host Canadian team with a 2-0 victory in the FIFA U-20 Womens World Cup quarter-final game between the two nations on Saturday. Germany will now await the winner of Sundays match between France and South Korea to determine its semifinal opponent for next weeks game in Montreal. The underdog Canadians were playing in the knockout stage of the tournament for the first time since 2004. The attendance at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton was 22,421, easily shattering the previous best showing of 16,503 for the 2014 event in Toronto. It was, however, the final game of the U-20 World Cup being played in Western Canada. Canada came out with a very strong start, putting the German side on its heels early. The Canadians came close to scoring in the ninth minute as Emma Fletcher sent a long shot past German goalkeeper Meike Kaemper and off the crossbar. Germany started to match the pace from there and had a strong opportunity of its own in the 17th minute as Rebecca Knaak got a shot off from in tight, but Canadian keeper Kailen Sheridan was perfectly positioned to haul it in. Germany got on the board in dramatic fashion in the 24th minute as a long goal kick was flicked on to Bremer for a clear breakaway. Sheridan came way out of her net to try and get to the ball and looked to have blocked Bremer out, but she was able to side-step at the last minute and take a shot on net that deflected off of Canadian defender Kadeisha Buchanan and in for a 1-0 lead. It was Bremers fourth goal of the tournament. The favoured Germans kept up the attack for the remainder of the first half and almost added to their lead in the 34th minute before Canadian defender Rebecca Quinn made a saving tackle in the crease. Germany came close to making it 2-0 once again in the 51st minute as a giveaway ended up giving Bremer a shot from inside the crease, but Sheridan came up with a big stop. Canada had its best opportunity in a while at the 61st minute mark, but Janine Beckies perfect pass in front was whiffed on by Valerie Sanderson. Then, in the 67th minute, Fletcher barely lost a race to a loose ball sitting in the crease to a diving Kaemper. The Germans made it 2-0 in the 82nd minute, as a corner kick by Sara Daebritz was headed in by Knaak. Canada came flying back seconds later and Amandine Pierrre-Louis had Kaemper beat, but shot the ball just wide of the far post. The Canadian squad furiously pushed forward in the final minutes, but was unable to get on the board despite a couple of very good chances. Earlier Saturday, North Korea knocked the United States out of the tournament with a 3-1 quarter-final win on penalties in Toronto. Jon So Yon, Ri Kyong Hyang, and Rim Se Ok each scored after drawing 1-1 through full-time. Goalkeeper Kim Chol Ok stopped three American penalty shots to earn player of the match honours. So Yon also scored in regulation, tying the game at a goal apiece with a penalty kick in the 54th minute. Makenzy Doniak had the lone U.S. goal in regulation, sending the ball into the net in the sixth minute, while Stephanie Amack scored on penalties. Notes: Only three teams have won the tournament since the inaugural event was staged in Canada in 2002. The United States has won three times, while Germany has claimed the title twice and Korea has the other… It was the first time since 2004 that Canada had advanced out of the group stage… Germany won all three of its games in the so-called Group of Death — Group B. The Germans outscored their opponents 12-6, although the totals against were blown somewhat askew in a bizarre 5-5 tie with China in their final group outing… Canada finished 2-1 to get out of Group A, outscoring opponents just 4-3… Germanys Sara Daebritz entered the game leading the tournament in goals with five… Canada plays host to the womens World Cup in 2015, with Edmonton serving as one of six host cities for the June 6 to July 5 event. Canada will play its first two games at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton. Johnathan Joseph Jersey

With just under five seconds remaining - the Raptors having clawed back from a 19-point deficit and pulled within one - DeRozan took the handoff from Chuck Hayes.AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Nate Marquardt tapped out James Te Huna in the first round of their main-event bout on Saturday at "UFC Fight Night: Te Huna vs. Marquardt," New Zealands first UFC card. Te Huna, who in 2010 became the UFCs first New Zealander, thrilled the crowd with his walk-in, which featured Maori warriors performing a traditional haka war dance. The energy carried into the cage, as both Te Huna and Marquardt started in rapid fashion. But after a few big exchanges on the feet, the end would come on the floor. Battling in the clinch against the cage, Marqaurdt (33-13-2) threw Te Huna (16-8) to the canvas and moved immediately into mount. When Te Huna rolled to escape, Marquardt went to the back and then slipped off to the side, trapping the arm and extending it to earn a submission win with 26 seconds left in the opening round. "An armbar was not part of my plan," said Marquardt. "It just sort of happened." The nights heavyweight co-feature was a little light on action, but Jared Rosholt (11-1) picked up a one-sided decision win over Australian fan-favourite Soa Palelei (21-4). It was Rosholts wrestling pedigree that earned him the win, utilizing a grinding grappling attack to bring Palelei repeatedly to the floor and preventing him from really ever launching any sort of attack. The crowd often booed the slow-paced fight, but at the end of 15 minutes, it was clear Rosholt had done enough to win the fight, and he was awarded the victory with three scores of 30-27. "I was a little disappointed with that win," Rosholt admitted. "I had a vision to dominate, which I did, but not in the fashion I wanted. "My last few fights have gone the distance, which is disappointing but proves that I have the conditioning, which is definitely an advantage at this weight class.dddddddddddd" In a grappling-heavy featherweight matchup, Charles Oliveira (18-4) scored an impressive submission win over fellow jiu-jitsu ace Hatsu Hioki (27-8-2). The entertaining matchup saw both men transition and sweep to dominant positions on the floor while seeking submission opportunities. Multiple attempts came from both men, but it was a modified guillotine choke in the second round that sealed the victory for Oliveira. Trapped in the hold, Hioki was forced to tap out for the first time in his career. "My opponent tonight was very tough and challenging," Oliveira admitted after the fight. "I studied all of his fights and knew he would be tough. "I know we are in New Zealand, but you always hear Brazilians in the crowd. They are the most passionate fight fans and always make lot of noise. Tonight, they inspired me to take the win." In the nights first main-card matchup, New Zealand native Robert Whittaker (13-4) picked up an impressive decision win over fellow welterweight Mike Rhodes (6-3). Whittaker, the former winner of "The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes," was the better striker throughout the three-round affair, using crisp boxing to pick apart his opponent with a sharp jab and powerful right hand. Rhodes was a game opponent, offering counters until the end and never seeming to slow, but Whittakers relentless attack earned him all three rounds, and he was awarded an unanimous-decision win with scores of 30-27 across the board. "The game plan was to throw as many weapons at my opponent as possible," Whittaker said after the win. "Hats off to Mike -- he gave a lot and definitely took a lot of shots. I like to think I punch hard, so props to him to keep on going."
