The teams were awarded seven points each at the end of the game, and UAE registered their first points of the competition.UAE scored 212 runs after being put in to bat, losing five wickets in their innings. Only seven overs were possible on the second day, after 59 were bowled on the opening day. The last two days of the match were abandoned without a ball being bowled.UAE overcame a poor start - they were 33 for 3 in the 10th over - through fifties from Shaiman Anwar and Rameez Shahzad. The pair added 123 runs for the fifth wicket before Anwar was dismissed for 78 off 129 balls. His innings included nine fours. Rameez carried on and was unbeaten on 74 when rain interrupted proceedings on the second day. He hit eight fours and two sixes in his 140-ball vigil.The wickets were split between pacers Alasdair Evans and Josh Davey, who took two apiece, and left-arm spinner Mark Watt, who had figures of 1 for 26. Brandon Carlo Bruins Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . -- Hunter Smith scored the winner with just 12 seconds remaining in the third period as the Oshawa Generals edged the host Sarnia Sting 5-4 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. David Pastrnak Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield. OMAHA, Neb. -- Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte did their part.The longtime rivals are headed to another showdown at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials.Phelps and Lochte cruised through the semifinals of the 200-meter individual medley Thursday night, each of them winning their heats in dominating fashion.It means a lot, Lochte said. Ive been racing him in this event since like 2003. Hes a tough competitor. I just love racing against him because its a challenge.This one is especially significant for Lochte, an 11-time Olympic medalist who has yet to qualify for an individual event in Rio.Slowed by a groin injury, the 31-year-old Lochte missed out in the 400 IM -- a race he won at the Olympics four years ago -- finished fourth in the 200 freestyle, and dropped out of the 200 backstroke.Though also entered in the 100 butterfly, Lochte is basically putting all his hopes on the 200 IM. A top-two finish will give him that cherished spot, but he really wants a win over Phelps in Friday nights final before they head to the Olympics.Im feeling better as far as like mentally, but physically Im getting tired, said Lochte, who at the very least will be going to Rio as a relay swimmer. Tomorrow night will definitely be a good battle between me and Michael.Lochte was the top qualifier at 1 minute, 56.71 seconds, while Phelps took the second spot in 1:57.61. That means theyll be right beside each other in the final, just as theyve been so many times during their dazzling careers.Phelps has already qualified for Rio in the 200 fly, but the most decorated athlete in Olympic history is eager to add two more individual races to his program. Hell be a big favorite in the 100 fly, a race in which Lochte doesnt figure to be a major threat.This is their only real chance to race.Him and I have gone back and forth a number of times in this race, Phelps said. During the big meets, we have great races. Were right there with each other tomorrow in the middle of the pool, probably a couple of tenths apart. Were going to be out and probably step on the gas a little bit more than we have in the past and youll have an exciting race.Missy Franklin, on the other hand, didnt even advance to the final of the 100 freestyle.Another big star from London struggled to an 11th-place showing in the semifinals, leaving her with only one individual race in Rio and just one more chance to bulk up her program: the 200 backstroke.No matter what, Franklins bubbly personality will be much less of a presence at these Summer Games than it was four years ago.That speed just doesnt feel like its quite there this meet, she said. No idea why. Its super disappointing, but I reallly feel like my endurance is there, so it gives me a lot of hope for my 200 back. Dominic Moore Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. While Franklin is struggling, another Olympic gold medalist will get a chance to defend his title.Nathan Adrian, the burly 27-year-old who won the 100 freestyle in London, used a powerful finishing kick to win in 47.72 seconds. Caeleb Dressel will also get to swim the down-and-back sprint in Rio, taking the second spot at 48.23.Anthony Ervin, the oldest swimmer at the trials, got off to a blistering start and led at the turn. The 35-year-old couldnt hold on, fading to fourth in 48.54 while also touching behind Ryan Held (48.26).But the top four are assured of spots on the team for the 4x100 free relay, meaning Ervin will be headed to his third Olympics.On the fifth night of the meet, Josh Prenot became the latest Olympic rookie to make the team, knocking off Kevin Cordes in the 200 breaststroke. Cordes had already won the 100 breast and was more than a second under world-record pace at the final turn of the longer race.But Prenot, furiously bouncing up and down in the water, surged past Cordes on the final lap to win in 2 minutes, 7.17 seconds, setting an American record and finishing just off the world mark of 2:07.01 held since 2012 by Japans Akhiro Yamaguchi.Also Thursday, Cammile Adams won the 200 butterfly after being briefly disqualified once day earlier during the preliminaries. The ruling that she made an illegal turn was quickly overturned after a review provided by the underwater camera, and Adams took advantage of her second chance to win with a time of 2:06.80. Hali Flickinger took the second Olympic spot in 2:07.50.Franklin is going to her second Summer Games, but she wont be nearly as busy this time around.As a high schooler four years ago, Franklin took part in seven events, winning four golds and a bronze. At age 21, shes shaping up as one of the biggest flops of the trials, outside of a gutsy runner-up finish in the 200 free behind Katie Ledecky.At the most, Franklin will only swim three events in Rio.Phelps figures to be much busier. Hes shooting to swim three individual races, and will likely be a part of all three relays.Oh, and he celebrated his 31st birthday on Thursday.I have a bunch of friends here and my mom rented out a room, so were all going to get together and have some food, Phelps said.Then hell turn his attention to a familiar foe.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .
