3. AMERICANS ABROAD: DeMerit scores first EPL goal
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.
