MONGOMO, Equatorial Guinea - Ghana came back from the brink of elimination with two goals in the last 17 minutes to beat South Africa 2-1 Tuesday and make the African Cup of Nations quarterfinals. Nike Vapormax Scontate Uomo .The four-time champion was heading for a rare early exit at the continental championship after Mandla Masangos spectacular volleyed goal for South Africa in the 17th minute.But a desperate Ghana turned it around in the second half at Mongomo Stadium.Substitute John Boye scored from close range in the 73rd minute and Andre Ayew headed home 10 minutes later for a victory that took Ghana from exiting the tournament to qualifying as winners of Group C.Algeria also made the quarterfinals from Group C after a 2-0 win over Senegal in Malabo. Ghana and Algeria ended on six points but Ghana topped the group after beating the Algerians in their meeting.Ghanas progress was hanging by a threat under big-name new coach Avram Grant. The Black Stars again needed a late surge like the one that gave them a stoppage-time win over top-ranked African team Algeria.Im very happy for the players, Grant said. Once again they showed spirit. We came through the group of death and we are first.Although Ghana isnt in top form yet, it is still in the tournament and still has a chance to end a 33-year wait for an African Cup title. Ghana will play the second-placed team from Group D — Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Guinea or Mali — in the quarters. Group D will be decided on Wednesday.I think with this team we can face any team in this competition, Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan said.Ghana had much of the play against a South Africa that had a slim chance of qualifying with a victory, but the Ghanaians couldnt convert their chances until right at the end.Masango had shocked them by controlling a clearance on his chest near the edge of the area and sending a fantastic dipping volley over goalkeeper Razak Braimah and just under the crossbar for the lead.Ghana applied pressure throughout the second half and found late inspiration when defender Boye managed to create space for himself to steer home a low shot for the equalizer. Another substitute brought on by Grant, forward Kwesi Appiah, played a crucial role in the winner that kept Ghana alive.He provided the cross for Ayew to head in, with the winger then wheeling away and diving onto the grass in celebration. His jubilant teammates piled on top of him.South Africa was eliminated after leading in every one of its three group games and failing to hold on, losing two and drawing one.First half we played very well and we got a goal. Come second half, we went to sleep, South Africa coach Ephraim Mashaba said. Vapormax Nere Scontate . The attacking midfielder arrives on a free transfer from Spains Malaga.

The Senators lost for the fourth time in six games with Mondays 2-1 overtime setback to the Pittsburgh Penguins, though they were able to earn a point following a disappointing 6-3 loss in Toronto on Saturday. Craig Anderson made a season-high 46 saves, but was unable to stop James Neals shot at the 1:55 mark of overtime. Stephane Da Costa scored for the Senators, who had cruised to a 5-0 win on home ice against the Pens back on Dec. 23 and now sit three points behind Detroit for eighth place in the Eastern Conference. "We knew we had to come out hard after the second half of our game in Toronto, which was not up to our liking," said Anderson, who surpassed his previous season high of 35 saves last done on Jan. 30. "We needed to come back and have a good game, and we knew they would want to come back hard at us too after we beat them in our building." Things dont get easier tonight for the Senators as they visit a Blues club that is third overall in the Western Conference with 79 points, three back of the Central Division-leading Chicago Blackhawks. Ottawa will visit the NHL basement-residing Buffalo Sabres on Thursday, but then visit the Atlantic Division-leading Boston Bruins on Saturday. After a heavy workload last night, Robin Lehner is likely to give Anderson a deserved break tonight. Lehner has faceed the Blues just once before, making 30 saves in a 3-2 overtime victory at home on Dec. Vapormax Uomo 2020. 16. The Senators snapped a two-game slide to the Blues and have won six of the last eight meetings. They will visit St. Louis for the first time since a 5-2 loss on Nov. 19, 2010. Defenseman Cody Ceci scored his first NHL goal in the matchup with the Blues and it was the game-winner in overtime. Chris Stewart scored twice for the Blues and Brian Elliott made 29 saves. Derek Roy added two assists for St. Louis and the Ottawa native has 14 goals and 39 points in 45 career games versus the Sens. Elliott made 28 saves as the Blues won the opener of a four-game homestand by besting the Nashville Predators 4-3 in a shootout on Saturday. Vladimir Tarasenko had a game-tying goal in the third period before notching the winner in the tiebreaker. "We needed this game after losing the last game," said Tarasenko, referring to a 3-1 setback in Carolina the previous night. He also had an assist versus the Predators. Jaden Schwartz and David Backers also lit the lamp for the Blues, who won for the fourth time in its last five games and moved to 20-5-2 at home this season. Jaroslav Halak will start tonight for St. Louis, which is 9-0-0 at home versus the Eastern Conference this season. Halak is 3-5-1 with a 2.76 goals against average in his career versus the Senators. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock is one win shy of 110 with the Blues, which would tie Scotty Bowman for fourth on the franchises all-time list. ' ' '
