(STATS) -- Picked to finish in first place in the Pioneer Football League for the sixth straight season, San Diego is right where it should be with November approaching. Swell Bottle Wholesale . The same cant be said for the Toreros opponent this week.San Diego -- and just about everyone -- probably didnt think Saturdays visit to Marist would determine first place in the league, but thats whats at stake when the last two unbeaten teams in PFL play meet at Tenney Stadium in Poughkeepsie, New York.The Toreros (6-1, 5-0) have been champions seven times since the PFL began play in 1993, trailing only Daytons 12 titles. In the previous five seasons, San Diego either shared the title or won it outright four times.The only year over that span that the Toreros failed to do so came in 2013, when Marist was co-champion for its only title since joining the PFL in 2009. The Red Foxes were picked to finish sixth in the 11-team league this year, but theyve won their first four PFL games for the first time -- a surprising start after they opened the season with three straight losses by a combined score of 77-33.Its hard to win, Marist coach Jim Parady said. Were going to enjoy this thing. I think the kids have gained confidence as weve gone through the Pioneer schedule each week, but we know we respect our opponents as we go. The big thing is that youve got to enjoy wins when you get them.In PFL action, San Diego ranks first in scoring offense (43.4 points per game), scoring defense (10.4), total offense (496.6 yards per game) and total defense (252.0). Marist is first in passing offense (337.8), second in scoring defense (19.8), third in total offense (437) and fifth in scoring offense (32.2).The Toreros, though, are also dominating on the national level. They lead the FCS in scoring defense (12.9), rank second in passing efficiency defense (88.52 rating) and sit sixth in total defense (279.4).On the offensive end, San Diego is No. 1 in the FCS in third-down conversion percentage (55.6) while ranking 14th in scoring offense (37.1) and tying for 15th in total offense (448.3). The Toreros are stacked on that side of the ball with redshirt sophomore quarterback Anthony Lawrence, redshirt senior running back Jonah Hodges, redshirt junior tight end Ross Dwelley and senior wide receiver Brian Riley leading the way.In overall play, Lawrence leads the PFL in pass efficiency (170.9) and completion percentage (68.8) while throwing for 1,801 yards and 16 touchdowns to just four interceptions. Hodges leads the league with 715 rushing yards, 163.4 all-purpose yards per game, 11 total TDs and 10 rushing scores. Dwelley is tied for first with seven TD catches and Riley is second with 95.1 receiving yards per game while hauling in five touchdowns.Marist has its own playmakers. Redshirt sophomore Mike White is second in the PFL with 1,941 passing yards and 296.6 total yards per game to go with 13 TDs and seven INTs, and hes also rushed for three scores. Sophomore wideout Juston Christian tops the league with 795 receiving yards and 113.6 yards per game through the air, and hes tied with Dwelley for the lead with seven TD catches. On defense, redshirt sophomore safety Wesley Beans is tied for fourth in all of college football with five interceptions.Things are just starting to click, were starting to do more of the right things as opposed to the wrong things, White said. Weve just got to keep this thing going. We have a lot of confidence right now. We just have to keep this momentum going into the next few weeks. Got to keep grinding and keep rolling.San Diego has won all 11 matchups in this series, but it needed to rally from 13 points down in the second quarter last season to beat visiting Marist 30-27. The last three meetings have been decided by a total of nine points, and six of the Toreros seven wins since the Red Foxes joined the PFL have come by a touchdown or less.Weve had some tremendously tough and hard games with Marist, San Diego coach Dale Lindsey said. Ive said to their head coach every year for four years, I hate playing you guys because they know how to play us. Theyre tough, theyre physical and its always a fight to the bitter end.

The Gunners are currently the second highest scorers in the league but Wenger insists Walcott will add something extra to his team. Swell Bottle Elements Collection . Zvonareva, who won the tournament in 2009 and 10, couldnt handle her opponents big groundstrokes in only her third event back after 17 months out with a shoulder injury. Zvonareva made her comeback in January in Shenzhen and played in the Australian Open but lost her first matches at both tournaments. http://www.discountswellbottles.com/swell-water-bottle-canada.html .C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have placed backup goalie Anton Khudobin on injured reserve with an unspecified lower-body injury. In the movie MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, a teenage Dhoni persuades his coach to let him open the batting in an inter-school limited-overs match. He even convinces one of the regular openers to give up his place, and goes on to score a double-hundred. As Indias limited-overs captain, Dhoni doesnt have to haggle for his preferred batting slot. Yet, it isnt as simple as walking up to the coach and seeking a promotion.Considering Dhonis approach has always been dictated by the match situation and the teams requirement, his decision to bat lower is easy to understand. In nine matches, between the 2015 World Cup and the start of this series, where India had batted second, they have mounted successful chases on only four occasions, of which three came against Zimbabwe.The role of a finisher could not be left to the younger batsmen, who are just settling into the side, so Dhoni found himself unable to move higher up the order. And when batting in the final overs, Dhoni admitted after the Mohali ODI, he is losing his ability to rotate the strike.So on Sunday evening, he walked in at No. 4, more importantly as early as the ninth over, ahead of Manish Pandey. The crowd took a few seconds to process - and then go delirious over - Dhonis promotion. There was nothing knee-jerk about this, and it wasnt entirely a situation-specific decision either, like at Wankhede Stadium on April 2, 2011. Instead, it became clearer over the course of Indias chase that the decision was geared towards extracting the best out of Dhoni the batsman who, when batting lower down, feels bogged down by consequences in absence of other finishers.We were having a conversation in the team management about the things we want to do. One of the things was for me to play free cricket, he said after the match. The first thing that helps [when batting at No.4] is you are only two down. It was important for me to start with a positive intent. I could have got out, but that is the risk you can afford to take if you are batting at No. 4.On the surface, Dhonis innings was moulded on a familiar template - nurdles, nudges and an overall busy presence - but he also shrugged off the inertia that had built up in recent times. It was a return to the build-before-explode space he likes to operate in.He began with a rasping pull to backward square leg for one and then walked down the crease to disturb Trent Boults length. After having decided five deliveries were enough to find his bearings, he gave Tim Southee a furious charge and smacked him over midwicket. New Zealand looked to attack him with the short ball, but Dhoni did not back down, even if he did not always manage to hit boundaries. He was temporarily bottled up by James Neesham and Mitchell Santner - moving from 10 off 12 balls to 13 off 24 - but once he smashed Neeshams length ball over mid-off, things were quickly out of New Zealands control. The familiar llofts over the bowlers head - Neesham and Santner were the worst affected - were duly reprised. Swell Bottle Marble Black. Batting at No.4, Dhoni said, freed him up to play the big shots right from the start. It was something that I wanted to do for a long time, but if you are batting at No.5 or No.6, and especially when your top order is batting brilliantly, you dont get to chance to bat how you want to bat, he said.Often, you will get in with the last 10 or 12 overs trying to slog and trying to get as many runs as possible, or the other way round where in the 20th over maybe where you have lost five wickets and you go in to bat looking for a partnership. If it keeps happening for a long time, you dont fluently rotate the strike. When you know there is just one batsman after you, you have to be close to 90% sure all the time when you are setting out and looking for a big hit.At that slot it becomes very result-oriented. That has actually hampered my batting to a great extent. Going at No.4, it was important to go and play the big shots. It was the first innings I played and I got runs, but its not easy to come out of it so I could have taken a few more innings. So, its good I got runs. Personally for me also, I am not looking too much into what needs to be done. I can play the shots over the fielder and I feel that was what was needed in my batting. Today was the first day and I am hoping to continue with this.The knock-on effect of Dhonis promotion was that two of the all-time best limited-overs batsmen spent maximum time at the crease. Dhoni offered his pet example of converting one-and-a-half runs into two while batting alongside Virat Kohli.If Im successful at No.4, it gives the team a bit of a liberty because Ill try to score at a decent pace, he said. Even today I felt I slowed down a bit but I feel its important for me to keep playing the big shots. Also it gives me a chance to bat with Virat. We run between the wickets very well, we can take on the opposition fielders even the best ones. If you get a good partnership in the middle, that is 100-125, it becomes slightly easier for the batsman coming after that.[Even today] it was a nice wicket but over the time what happened was without much dew it slowed down, so it was not easy to keep rotating the strike. I thought we adjusted very well in the middle overs because we knew there will be overs where we wont get more than 3-4 runs per over and we knew later on we can always get overs where we can score 8-9 runs and compensate for it.By stating that his promotion is an opportunity for youngsters to take ownership of the finishing role, Dhoni is allowing them to learn on the job. Given his utility at the top of the order, it is hard to disagree with his logic that its a win-win for everybody. ' ' '
