3. AMERICANS ABROAD: DeMerit scores first EPL goal
November 20th, 2006 1:47AM



American defender Jay DeMerit, who scored in the playoff game that clinched promotion for Watford last May, scored his first English Premier League goal in Watford's 2-1 loss to Portsmouth. But DeMerit, who scored five goals at the second tier, was called for the foul that gave Portsmouth the penalty kick that Lomana Lua Lua converted for its gamewinner.

In Germany, Kasey Keller returned from a shoulder injury suffered last week to start in Borussia Moenchengladbach's 1-0 loss to Hannover 96, for which Steve Cherundolo went the full 90. The Hannover win moved it out of the relegation zone with the win. ... After five straight starts, Benny Feilhaber stayed on Hamburg SV's bench during a 0-0 tie with Mainz.

In Belgium, with Oguchi Onyewu playing 90 minutes in the central defense, lost 2-1 to lowly Sint Truiden.
