PERTH, Australia -- Australia gave Ewen McKenzie his first victory as coach by holding out for a less-than-impressive 14-13 win over Argentina in the Rugby Championship on Saturday. Jihad Ward Raiders Jersey . In ending a four-match losing streak in windy and rainy conditions in Perth, the Wallabies scored their only try through fullback Israel Folau to lead 14-3 at halftime but didnt score again. Juan Manuel Leguizamons second-half try pulled the visitors close. Australia had lost three Rugby Championship matches in a row after being defeated in the deciding British and Irish Lions test. The loss was Argentinas fourth in a row in the tournament and left the South American side in last place. Argentina led with an eighth-minute penalty, but Folau beat four opponents to cross over in the 28th, while Christian Lealiifano added three penalties. In a second half dominated by the Pumas, they gained ascendancy at the scrum but their only reward came when No. 8 Leguizamon crossed in the 65th. McKenzie gambled during the week when he dropped star halfback Will Genia to the bench, but the move paid dividends. Genias replacement, Nic White, performed well and his kicks for touch in the first half were impressive enough that he played out the entire match. Australia captain Ben Mowen, standing in for the injured James Horwill, said the win was rewarding despite the close scoreline. "I thought the early results we got, a couple of early penalties, that was a big statement from where we were last week," Mowen said, referring to the Wallabies poor scrum performance in a 38-12 loss to South Africa. "We had to play disciplined in terms of field position near the end, and had to manage the territory. We did that. "We know the rugby public havent been happy with the results weve given them at this stage. We see those comments and it motivates us." McKenzie said he was pleased with his first win, and said he didnt mind if there were references to the Wallabies winning ugly. "There was some really good moments of character there," McKenzie said. "We had to defend our line in the second half. Theyre the moments that ultimately define the team and the character of the people and how they work together." The tournament is idle until Sept. 28 for the penultimate round when South Africa plays the Wallabies in Cape Town and New Zealand takes its 4-0 record to La Plata, Argentina to play the Pumas.

. Halifax beat the Saint John Sea Dogs 7-5 on the strength of two goals apiece from Nikolaj Ehlers, Matt Murphy and Brent Andrews. Jonathan Drouin also scored and had three assists while Zachary Fucale made 17 saves for the Mooseheads (16-8-0), who led 6-1 after two periods.TSN.cas 2013 Play of the Year Showdown continues with our second batch of goalie match-ups. Vezina winner and New York Rangers star Henrik Lundqvist goes glove-to-glove against the acrobatic Dallas Stars keeper, Kari Lehtonen. Lundqvists POY-nominated save comes as the Boston Bruins, on the power play, are skillfully moving the puck around the offensive zone. A couple quick passes down-low leads to a great pass by Milan Lucic across the top of the crease to an open David Krejci for what would be considered a sure thing. Unfortunately for Krejci, Lundqvist makes an incredible effort, and stops the Bruins in what is clearly one of the best saves of the year. Lehtonens POY entry also occurs short-handed. As the Stars are killing off a penalty against the Columbus Blue Jackets, Jack Johnson picks up the puck and cuts towards the net, firing a hard wrist-shot on net which handcuffs a screened Lehtonen and bounces towards the open goal. As every Blue Jackets player on the ice puts their arms up in celebration, one-by-one disbelief washes over them as they realize that Lehtonen has robbed them in an incredible feat of athleticism.
