TORONTO - As the Women's World Cup wound down, Canadian coach John Herdman pointed to his team's very first game when asked about his favourite memories from the tournament.

"I do have some big moments," he said in an interview.

The biggest is Herdman's joyful embrace with Christine Sinclair after the Canadian captain scored on a stoppage-time penalty for a 1-0 win over China in the tournament opener June 6.

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs signed forward Nazem Kadri to a one-year contract extension on Sunday.

NEELTJE JANS, Netherlands - In ferocious winds and thunderous rain, Chris Froome and Alberto Contador managed to use the conditions to their advantage on the second stage of the Tour de France.

That gave them the early leg up on main rivals Vincenzo Nibali and Nairo Quintana.

While it's too soon for anyone to gain a decisive advantage in the race, British rider Froome and the Spaniard Contador are certainly on the front foot in what is widely touted as a four-way Tour battle.

CARSON, Calif. - A bad start and costly mistakes hurt Toronto FC on Saturday night.

Robbie Keane scored his third-career hat trick as the Los Angeles Galaxy shutout Toronto 4-0.

"We got off to a wrong start by giving up a PK goal 8 minutes in, I haven't seen it so I don't have an opinion, but we got off on the wrong side of it," said TFC coach Greg Vanney.

Keane, who had two hat tricks in the 2013 season, opened the scoring on a penalty kick in the ninth minute.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. - The Vancouver Whitecaps' three-game winning streak is over.

Kevin Doyle scored his first MLS goal for the Colorado Rapids as they edged Vancouver 2-1 on Saturday.

The win snapped a six-game winless streak for Colorado.

"I thought we done enough to probably win the game," said Whitecaps coach Carl Robinson, whose team wrapped up a five-game road trip.

"I think some of our performance levels weren't what we have been in the last three games, and unfortunately we haven't picked up any points tonight."

MONTREAL - The Montreal Impact had nothing to show for one of its best performances of the season Saturday night.

The Impact outplayed New York City FC and controlled most of the game but ultimately lost 2-1.

"It's a difficult one because I felt we dominated the whole game," said Montreal coach Frank Klopas. "The only thing that matters in the end is just the score, but it hurts. This was probably the best game we've played here at home, from start to finish.

"It's a tough pill to swallow."

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Redblacks are a different team with a different attitude in 2015.

Last year, it took Ottawa (2-0) 13 games before it won two games and that's all they managed for the season.
