BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Following his teams victory over No. 17 Virginia Tech on Saturday, East Carolina coach Ruffin McNeill sought out his quarterback Shane Carden and they shared a lengthy embrace in the south end zone of Lane Stadium. The hug for Carden was well deserved. Carden threw three touchdown passes and scored a rushing touchdown with 16 seconds left to lead the Pirates to a 28-21 upset of the Hokies. The senior from Houston, Texas, completed 23 of 47 passes for 427 yards in carrying the Pirates to their first victory over a ranked team since 2009 when they beat then-No. 18 Houston 38-32 in Greenville, North Carolina. They also beat a ranked team on the road for the first time since 1996 when they topped then-No. 12 Miami 31-6. East Carolina (2-1) snapped a five-game losing streak to ranked opponents. "Coming back from adversity from last week (a 33-23 loss to South Carolina), thats what that hug was about," McNeill said. "Staying the course and believing what you believe in, thats what that hug was about. Getting it done as one heartbeat, one breath, one mind, one Pirate ... thats what that hug was about." The Pirates nearly squandered a three-touchdown lead. Virginia Tech (2-1), coming off a road win over then-No. 8 Ohio State, tied the game at 21 on an 18-yard touchdown pass from Michael Brewer to Cam Phillips with 1:20 left. But the Pirates, after doing little in the second half, needed just three plays to go 65 yards. Virginia Tech kicker Joey Slye kicked the ensuing kickoff out of bounds, giving the Pirates the ball at their 35. Then, Carden threw passes of 31 and 28 yards to Cam Worthy sandwiched around an illegal substitution penalty on the Hokies. He scored on a 1-yard run to lift the Pirates to the win. "Just believing," Carden said when asked how the Pirates rallied. "Just continuing to believe. We just made some routine plays. They were playing some good defence there in the second half and we couldnt get a lot going. But we just kept believing, believing in our coaches. "We got some good field position to start, and then Worthy made some big-time catches on that drive. When the game is on the line, youve got to make plays." Worthy finished with six catches for 224 yards for the Pirates. Carden threw touchdown passes on the Pirates first two possessions and three of their first four. ECU wasted little time in getting on the scoreboard, driving 75 yards in seven plays on the games first possession. The Pirates converted on third-and-2 from the Virginia Tech 27 when Cardens pass was batted into the air and fell into the hands of Bryce Williams, who rumbled 22 yards to the Virginia Tech 5. Two plays later, Carden found Williams in the back of the end zone for a 4-yard scoring play to give the Pirates a 7-0 lead with 12:17 left in the first quarter. The Pirates struck again on their next possession. A 70-yard drive that took less than a minute ended when Carden found receiver Trevon Brown in the end zone for a 15-yard score. That gave the Pirates a 14-0 lead less than five minutes into the game. The Pirates took a 21-0 lead toward the end of the first quarter. Carden threw his third touchdown pass of the quarter, this one to receiver Isaiah Jones for 7 yards with 2:44 remaining in the quarter, to give ECU a 21-point edge. Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer refused to say the Hokies were suffering a letdown after their huge win over Ohio State last weekend and that led to their slow start. "Im not going to make that excuse," Beamer said. "I thought we were ready to play. We understood how exactly East Carolina was going to play. It wasnt a secret. They hit a couple of big plays against our defence, and offensively, we were sluggish getting started and then the defence is right back on the field. "It just wasnt a good start, but I thought we were ready to play. We had all the respect in the world for East Carolina. They did a great job. Theyre well coached, and theyve done a good job of recruiting. Theyve got some players there." Virginia Tech managed to cut into the ECU lead right before halftime. Mustering their best drive of the first half, the Hokies went 73 yards in eight plays and got on the board when Brewer threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Ford, who made a one-handed grab. Officials reviewed the play to see if the ball hit the ground, but upheld the catch, and Virginia Tech cut the lead to 21-7 with 47 seconds remaining in the half. Brewer completed 30 of 56 passes for 298 yards, with three touchdowns and two interceptions for the Hokies. But it wasnt enough to lead the Hokies to what would have been their biggest comeback win under Beamer. "It just goes back to believing and the commitment to the team," McNeill said. "If it goes bad and you believe in that, you dont waiver when it goes bad. You dont think its all about you when it goes well. "There are three sides to this game, and you want all three sides working together at one. Thats where the commitment to our team and putting our team first showed. We stayed focused and never got down on ourselves." AShawn Robinson Jersey . "I never commented to anyone that I wanted out," he explained. "My heart is with this group and making the playoffs."

United have acquired midfielder Alex Caskey from the Seattle Sounders for a third-round pick in the 2016 MLS draft.As Randy Carlyle watched Team Canada clinch their second consecutive Olympic gold medal early Sunday morning, it was the way in which they went about achieving success - a complete defensive domination surrendering just three goals against in six games - which piqued his interest most. "I looked at it and I hope our players understand that defense does win, thats the simplest statement you can make," said the Toronto Maple Leafs head coach on Monday. If there is a goal for the Leafs over their remaining 22 games, it should be to clamp down defensively. Throughout the season, they have routinely been outshot, allowing 40 or more shots on 16 different occasions, and a league high 2175, 146 more than the next highest team, the Ottawa Senators. Of their 32 wins, the Maple Leafs lead the NHL with 25 wins in games that they have been outshot. A large part of their success has come from excellent goaltending and their ability to outscore their defensive issues, sitting behind only the Pittsburgh Penguins for the most goals scored in the Eastern Conference. But come playoff time, it is often the best defensive teams that emerge victorious. "We know that we can score goals as a team so if we can tighten up a little bit our defence, we feel were going to be a tough team to beat," said Jonathan Bernier, who has faced the third-most shots in the NHL this season. "I think that youve seen that over a long time, not just in that tournament, that good defensive teams have success," added captain Dion Phaneuf. "When you play good defence, it means you have the puck more and that generates more offence. Thats a fair statement when you say defence wins, its been like that for a long time." Team Canadas defence was made effective, primarily by the cohesion featured among the five playeers on the ice at any given time, and the relentless nature in which forwards back checked.dddddddddddd While that system was executed by some of the finest players in the game, strong defensive skills are not like offensive talent. When it comes to scoring goals, some players simply have more of a knack at it than others but, as Dave Bolland explained, there should be no excuse for poor defensive play. "Defence is about commitment," he said. "I know coming into the NHL, my defensive skills were terrible, and I admit that. But I learned that defence wins you games. I sort of took a hold of that and set it up as my third-line role." Bollands impending return (he, like last week, remained coy today about the potential of dressing against the New York Islanders this Thursday) should help lead the way in terms of defensive commitment. In 15 games before going down with the severed tendon in his left ankle, Bolland showed himself to be among the Leafs top defensive forwards. "I learned a lot about back checking when I got into the league," said Bolland. "When I was in juniors, you didnt even think about coming back. Once I got up to the NHL, you learn backchecking is crucial. The first guy I learned that from was Marian Hossa. You see that guy backcheck, he corrupts [sic] a lot of puck and he corrupts [sic] a lot of sticks, hes always back in the right spots." For an example of the style of play he hopes his players can work toward, Carlyle looked no further than the gold medal game itself. "In that game, it was played at a very high pace, but defence, probably on both hockey clubs, was very evident in the way they approached it and how they tried to set up their defensive schemes," he explained.
