Newport Gwent Dragons secured only their third win in all competitions this season as they survived a second-half comeback from PRO12 champions Connacht to claim a 21-16 victory at Rodney Parade.It was a first league win for the Welsh region in six attempts, while Connacht went home with a losing bonus point for their efforts.Wing Ashton Hewitt scored both of the Dragons tries while outside-half Angus OBrien kicked 11 points via a penalty, two drop goals and a conversion.Fly-half Jack Carty booted three Connacht penalties and converted their only try through wing Niyi Adeolokun.The highlight of an average first half was Hewitts electrifying touchdown that has to be in contention for the try of the season.It came 13 minutes into the match when scrum-half Sarel Pretorious found a gap on the right and surged over the halfway line.The ball was spun swiftly across the home back division through centres Jack Dixon and Sam Beard as the Connacht backs spread wide to cover.Hewitt took the pass 30 metres out on the left touchline and raced past the desperate cover to run to the corner, with OBrien converting.OBriens boot increased the Dragons lead to 10 points with a straightforward 25-metre penalty but when they infringed 40 metres from their own line, Carty was on hand to get Connacht off the mark with a booming penalty.The Dragons retaliated as they put pressure inside the Irishmens 22 for Pretorious to send a pass into the pocket for OBrien to land a 30-metre drop-goal that restored the 10-point advantage.Connacht hardly came close to the home try line in the first half and posed little threat in attack but they managed to pull back the deficit two minutes before the break when the Dragons were penalised 30 metres out and Carty made no mistake.Connacht came out with more purpose in the second half, with scrum-half Caolin Blade like a terrier around the base of the breakdowns.But handling errors were Connachts biggest headache, and, when the league champions tried to get something going, they were reined back.And, when Hewitt beat the covering defence to the ball as Beards long grubber kick down the left touchline drifted into the in-goal area, the Dragons were closing in on revenge after Connacht did the double over them on their way to last years title.OBrien sank his second drop-goal of the night after 52 minutes to put his side 15 points ahead, although Carty kicked his third penalty five minutes later.Centre Bundee Aki was a thorn in the Dragons side most of the night but the home defence looked to be standing up to the visitors pressure until they were caught napping as Adeolokun stormed over on the right for a neat try that Carty converted.That took the Irishmen to within one try of levelling the match during a tense final 10 minutes but the Welshmen held out for victory. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Calvin-Johnson-Draft-Jersey/ . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Sam-Martin-Draft-Jersey/ . LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Zach-Zenner-Draft-Jersey/ .Y. -- Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Wednesday that J. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Matthew-Stafford-Draft-Jersey/ .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Anthony-Zettel-Draft-Jersey/ . The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. MADRID -- At least in the Champions League, there is no sign of a letdown for Atletico Madrid.The Spanish club again triumphed in the European competition on Wednesday, defeating already eliminated PSV Eindoven 2-0 to retain a perfect record and secure first place in Group D with one round of matches remaining.In contrast, Atletico lost three of its last four games in the Spanish league, with the latest defeat a painful 3-0 loss at home against Real Madrid in the city derby. But it picked up its fifth win in as many matches in the Champions League with second-half goals by Kevin Gameiro and Antoine Griezmann at Vicente Calderon Stadium on Wednesay.We wanted to put Saturdays loss (to Madrid) behind us, Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. For the club and the fans this is an important win, it sends us into the knockout stage in a privileged position and allows us to keep competing for our goals.The result left Atletico with six more points than Bayern Munich, which lost 3-2 to FC Rostov in Russia but had already advanced from the group.We wanted to give a different impression and win this game to finish first, Griezmann said. We need to keep working hard both in the (Spanish) league and in the Champions League. We need to keep giving everything we have. Today was a complicated match and we played well.PSV remained with one point, three less than Rostov. In the final group round, Atletico plays at Bayern Munich and PSV hosts Rostov to fight for a spot in the Europa League next season.If we win the game, we kknow well stay in Europe.dddddddddddd. Thats our objective, PSV coach Phillip Cocu said. Today I saw some good things and it was our errors that cost us. Thats the difference at this level against a big team like Atletico.Last seasons runner-up in the Champions league, Atletico is the only team to have won all of its first five matches in the group stage, its best ever start in the competition. It had already qualified before Wednesdays game.Atletico had been held scoreless in its last two games, and it took a while before it got the attack going against PSV.But after a slow first half, the hosts got on the board in the 55th with Gameiros low shot into the far corner after a well-timed pass by Griezmann, and Griezmann got his own goal around 10 minutes later with a shot from inside the area.Gameiro nearly added another but his header struck the crossbar.The goal was a demonstration of his qualities: speed, power, finish, Simeone said of Gameiro. It was a great finish. Thats what both he and Griezmann offer. It was an important moment both for him and the team.After the recent setbacks in the league, Simeone reverted to a more secure scheme defensively, with midfielder Tiago playing from the start along with Gabi Fernandez, which was enough to keep PSV from having many significant scoring chances.Simeones team has won 28 of its 33 games at the Calderon in European competitions.
