VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Whitecaps have cleared many hurdles in their four Major League Soccer seasons. Cheap Giants Jerseys China . One hedge that has continually tripped them up is playing the L.A. Galaxy on the road. Vancouver has never beaten the Galaxy at StubHub Center, where they have lost four times and been outscored 10-1. "Thanks for reminding me," coach Carl Robinson said with a grin this week after his team practised at the University of British Columbia. "Its got to change at some stage." The Whitecaps (2-1-2) are aware of the challenge they face when they play the Galaxy (1-1-1) Saturday in Carson, Calif. The team is packing a sense of confidence for the road trip. The Whitecaps have managed a win and tie against the Galaxy at B.C. Place Stadium. Saturdays game is another chance to measure themselves against one of MLSs perennial powerhouses. "Both sides have good competitors," said Vancouver captain Jay DeMerit. "Them being one of the better teams its a time for us to raise our game and really test ourselves and see how good we are. "That creates that battle sense." The Whitecaps are coming off their first defeat of the season, a 2-1 home loss to the Colorado Rapids last week. Vancouver led 1-0 but, playing one man down, gave up two goals in as many minutes to Rapids midfielder Jose Mari. "Those things happen and you move on," said DeMerit. "Knowing the calibre of team we are up against this weekend, that should excite us. That should take our focus and make sure we are preparing right. If we do the right things we can beat anyone in this league." The Whitecaps will be without midfielder Matias Laba who is suspended after picking up two yellow cards against Colorado. He could be replaced by Nigel Reo-Coker who missed two games after tripping over a bike rack and bashing his head. The 29-year-old from London was back practising with the team this week sporting an ugly scar on his head and a desire to get back on the pitch. "Im excited," said Reo-Coker, who started the first three games of the season. "When you sit out and watch one or two games its not nice. "Im someone who is used to competing." DeMerit said Reo-Coker makes the Whitecaps more abrasive. "Nigel brings a grit, he brings competitiveness, he brings a toughness in the tackle," he said. "He can really help us going forward when he gets the ball at this feet and drives at the defence." The Whitecaps have been a tale of two teams this year. Both their wins have come at home where they have outscored their opponents 7-4 in three matches. On the road Vancouver has managed two draws and just one goal. Robinson relishes the challenge the Galaxy present. "Were a young evolving team," said the first-year head coach. "It will be a good test to see where we are. "Its important we go on the road and try and dictate what we can, control ourselves, deal with them attacking wisely but putting a focus on us attacking." The Galaxy won their first match of the season with a 3-0 defeat of Chivas USA last week. Captain Robbie Keane scored his second goal of the season in the match. Keane has 36 goals and 22 assists in 58 MLS games since joining the Galaxy in 2011. Forward Landon Donovan needs just one goal to reach 135. That would make him the MLS all-time regular-season leader in goals scored. Whitecaps goalkeeper David Ousted said he doesnt want to be the answer to a trivia question. "It would be nice not to be that guy," said Ousted. "I am trying to keep a clean sheet so it doesnt matter who scores." Donovan has scored four goals against the Whitecaps, the most of any L.A. player. Keane and Donovan combine for a dangerous one-two punch, but defender Andy OBrien said its dangerous to focus on them because the Galaxy have plenty of other players able to deliver a knockout blow. "If you emphasize on Keane there are 11 players on the pitch," said OBrien, who has been a teammate with Keane on the Irish national team. "Not only does Robbie score goals he creates goals. "We need to close him down. He is one of a number of players theyve got that can score goals. From a defensive prospective you try to make life difficult for him and stick to it." DeMerit agreed the Whitecaps cant become too focused on just two Galaxy players. "One of their best qualities is they have a lot of interchangeable parts," he said. "You will see guys on the left end up on the right and guys in the centre on the left. "Guys have to make sure they are sticking with their jobs and their spots on the field. They are going to try to get us moving and change around. Defensively we need to be wary of that and get help from all 11 (players) defensively, not just the back four." Cheap Giants Jerseys Authentic . With their coach gone, they finally played offence the way he would have wanted. Amare Stoudemire made all seven shots in the first half, Anthony passed and shot well, and the Knicks shook off the surprising departure of their coach to rout the Portland Trail Blazers 121-79 on Wednesday night, snapping a six-game losing streak. Cheap Giants Jerseys .Steamboat Ski Resort contends Steamboat Springs, Colorado has long been known as Ski Town, U.S.A., and claims in a new lawsuit that Salt Lake tourism officials violated their trademark when they rolled out the Ski City marketing campaign last month. http://www.cheapsanfranciscogiantsjerseys.com/ . Vonn punctuated her near-perfect season in perfect fashion Friday, earning her fourth overall World Cup title with a dominating giant slalom victory.Paris, France - There wont be a matchup of the Williams sisters at the French Open. Serena and Venus Williams could have met in the third round at Roland Garros, but, surprisingly, neither made it out of round two on Wednesday. After Venus was eliminated by Slovakias Anna Schmiedlova in three sets on Court Chatrier to start the second round, the top-seeded Serena was stunned by Spains Garbine Muguruza. Schmiedlova, in her second French Open and fifth Grand Slam event, pulled off a 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory over the 29th-seeded Venus for her first-ever win against a top-30 opponent. The shocker then came about an hour later on Court Lenglen, as the 20-year- old Muguruza took full advantage of an uncharacteristically sloppy Serena in a 6-2, 6-2 triumph. Muguruzas best result in five previous Grand Slam events was a fourth-round loss to Agnieszka Radwanska at the Australian Open earlier this year. "Its a dream come true," said Muguruza. "Since I was a child, I thought, Oh, I want to play against Serena on center court, and today was the day, and I think I did very good." Serena struggled with her typically devastating serve. "I dont think anything worked for me," Serena said. "It was one of those days. You cant be on every day, and, gosh, I hate to be off during a Grand Slam. It happens." It wasnt Serenas earliest exit at Roland Garros. She was bounced in the first round two years ago by Frenchwoman Virginie Razzano, then rebounded by completely dominating her opponents last year en route to her second French title -- dropping just one set in seven matches. Serenas loss continued the run of surprising outcomes over the last three days in the French capital. Mens third seed Stan Wawrinka was sent home in the first round on Monday and Li Na, the womens second seed and 2011 champion, was knocked out Tuesday. A third-seeded Radwanska eased past Czech Karolina Pliskova 6-3, 6-4, while Russian great Maria Sharapova also avoided an upset by stifling Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova 7-5, 6-2. Pliskova was a clay court runner-up in Germany last week. The seventh-seeded former world No. 1 Sharapova is perhaps now the favorite to capture the 2014 French Open. She titled here two years ago to complete the career Grand Slam and lost to Serena in last years marquee finale in southwest Paris. Sharapova has lost only four clay court matches since 2012, with three of them coming at the hands of Serena. Cheap San Francisco Giants Jerseys. The other one came against fellow former No. 1 Ana Ivanovic in Rome two weeks ago. Eighth-seeded German Angelique Kerber also avoided an upset Wednesday by tackling American Varvara Lepchenko 6-2, 7-5, while ninth-seeded Aussie Open runner-up Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia raced past Austrian Tamira Paszek 6-3, 6-4. Making her Grand Slam debut this week, promising American teenager Taylor Townsend took out 20th-seeded French favorite Alize Cornet 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 on Day 4. The 18-year-old blew a 4-1 lead in the second set and was up big, at 5-1 in the third, before blowing four match points and letting Cornet pull within 4-5 in the stanza. But Townsend would hang on to advance amid some light rain. Townsends third-round opponent will be tough Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro. Meanwhile, Swedens Johanna Larsson rallied for a surprising 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 victory over 12th-seeded Flavia Pennetta of Italy, the 14th-seeded Suarez Navarro defeated Swiss Timea Bacsinszky 7-5, 1-6, 6-4 and German Mona Barthel upset injured 16th-seeded fellow countrywoman Sabine Lisicki 6-1, 3-0. The Wimbledon runner-up Lisicki was forced to retire with right wrist injury she suffered after taking a spill on court in the opening set against Barthel. In other action involving seeds, No. 18 Canadian Eugenie Bouchard came back from a set down to post a 2-6, 6-2, 6-1 win over German Julia Goerges; No. 19 former U.S. Open champ Sam Stosur leveled Austrian Yvonne Meusburger 6-1, 6-3; No. 31 Slovakian veteran Daniela Hantuchova took care of Frances Claire Feuerstein 6-1, 6-4; and Croat Ajla Tomljanovic upended No. 32 Russian Elena Vesnina 7-6 (8-6), 6-2. Bouchard captured her first-ever WTA title last week in Nuremberg, Germany. Stosur was a French Open runner-up back in 2010. The second round is scheduled to conclude Thursday, including matches for fourth-seeded Simona Halep, fifth-seeded Petra Kvitova, sixth-seeded former No. 1 Jelena Jankovic, 10th-seeded Sara Errani and 11th-seeded former top- ranked performer Ana Ivanovic. Halep will meet Brit Heather Watson, while the former French Open champion and runner-up Ivanovic will face Ukrainian Elina Svitolina and the 2012 Roland Garros finalist Errani will battle German Dinah Pfizenmaier.
