GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Phil Dawsons franchise-record string of 27 consecutive field goals ended with a missed 24-yard chip shot. The San Francisco kicker made up for it, to say the least, at the end of a wild 23-20 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday that clinched the NFCs No. 5 playoff seed. Now the 49ers take a six-game winning streak into their first-round game at Green Bay. "We would like to carry that momentum," said Anquan Boldin, who had a big game against his former team. "It felt like a playoff game. We came in here and won a tough game, so hopefully that will continue." The 49ers (12-4) led 17-0 after one quarter, but needed two field goals from Dawson in the final 1:45. The first one matched his career long of 56 yards, the second was a 40-yarder to win the game as time expired. "You live and learn on every kick, try to figure what I did wrong and apply that to future kicks," Dawson said. "I am glad it came down to the end to help our team win." The teams combined for 16 points in the final 3:20. After Dawsons 56-yarder put San Francisco up 20-17 with 1:45 to go, Jay Feely -- who had missed two earlier -- made a 43-yard field goal to tie it at 20 with 34 seconds left. That turned out to be plenty of time for the 49ers. LaMichael James 45-yard kickoff return and two quick completions by Colin Kaepernick set up Dawsons winner. "It doesnt matter how (we won)," San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh said, "by any means necessary." The crucial completion to set up the winning field goal, a 29-yard sidelines throw, went to rookie Quinton Patton, who in a season slowed by injury had just one catch before Sunday. Arizona (10-6) rallied from a 17-0 first-quarter deficit to tie it on Carson Palmers 34-yard touchdown pass to Andre Roberts with 3:20 remaining. Boldin caught nine passes for 149 yards and a TD in his first game back since Arizona traded him to Baltimore after the 2009 season. To make the playoffs, the Cardinals needed to beat San Francisco and have New Orleans lose to Tampa Bay. Neither occurred, leaving Arizona, in its first year under coach Bruce Arians, to settle for just its third 10-win season since the franchise moved to the desert in 1988. "That comeback was as good as Ive been around against a very good football team," Arians said. "It just shows what theyve been through, their persevering and fighting for 60 minutes. The thing thats really bad about the NFL is how abruptly it ends. We were really hoping to be playing next weekend and obviously were not." Palmer, after a slow start, was 28 for 49 for 407 yards and two touchdowns with one interception. In the process, he became the first player in NFL history to throw for more than 4,000 yards in a season for three different teams. Larry Fitzgerald had six catches for 113 yards. San Franciscos NaVorro Bowman had an interception, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and a sack in the 49ers ninth victory in the last 10 meetings with Arizona. Boldin did most of his damage in the first quarter, with six catches for 106 yards, including a 4-yarder for a touchdown and a 63-yard play to set up another TD. But that was it for the San Francisco offence until Dawsons late two kicks. Bowmans sack had put Arizona in third and 13 when Palmer lofted one to the end zone, where Roberts gathered it in just as he was sliding out of bounds on a slippery turf recently re-sodded for Wednesdays Fiesta Bowl. Kaepernicks 18-yard pass to Boldin helped set up Dawson 56-yarder, matching his longest, set in 2008. Palmer, though, connected on passes of 24 yards to Rob Housler and 23 yards to Fitzgerald to give Feely a chance for redemption, and the kick that tied it at 20. With the game seemingly headed for overtime, James raced from 5 yards deep in the end zone to the 49ers 40, then Kaepernick, in a play that started with just 18 seconds to play, completed a perfect pass to the untested Patton. "I liked the matchup and there was no safety on that side of the field," Kaepernick said. "I thought I would give him a chance. He has shown that he can go up and make those plays in practice. He came up with it and it was huge for us." Then, Dawsons final field goal ended it. Notes: The 49ers beat Green Bay 34-28 in San Francisco in the season opener ...

Saturday at Carrow Road, the spirit of fair play trumped the rulebook, costing Norwich City three points.STANFORD, Calif. - Serena Williams roared back after falling behind in the third set to beat Ana Ivanovic 2-6, 6-3, 7-5 on Friday night to reach the semifinals of the Bank of the West Classic. The top-seeded and top-ranked Williams dropped three consecutive games to fall behind 4-3 and then ripped seven straight points to right the ship in front of a sellout crowd at Stanford. "It wasnt very easy," Williams said. "I tried to do the things I worked on. Im feeling really good. Im not out of breath, so yeah." Williams assured herself of a 200th non-consecutive week at the top of the ladder while Ivanovic will return to the top 10 for first time in over five years. Andrea Petkovic ended Venus Williams run in the tournament, beating the former top-ranked player 6-1, 3-6, 7-5 in the quarterfinals. She gets a shot at Serena Williams on Saturday afternoon. "You dont ever have the feeling you have something under control when you play either of them," Petkovic said. "They can hit so hard, and play consistently well. You always have to be on your toes." Following a shaky start, the 25th-ranked Venus Williams picked up her game in the second set and appeared poised to take over the match. The 18th-ranked Petkovic rallied in the third set, taking leads of 3-1 and 5-3, to beat Williams in their first meeting since Luxembourg in 2012. "I was not as on as I was on previous days," Williams said. "I had to fight through that and I think I almost did that. But she played the last two points better." Pettkovic, making her debut in the tournament, is looking for her third title of the season.dddddddddddd. She also reached the semifinal at the French Open. "I played one of my best games in the third set at 5-5," Petkovic said. "Before that it was a weird match. There were so many momentum changes and so many ups and downs, I felt like I played four different matches in one." The Serena-Ana match was similar as Ivanovic dominated the first set before Williams turned it around in the second set. The third set took on a life of its own. Both players simply refused to go away and battled through long rallies and silly errors. Serena served for the match at 5-4 but Ivanovic denied her. Serena broke back and used a pair of aces to take a 40-0 lead before ending it when Ivanovics return went just wide. Varvara Lepchenko took care of qualifier Sachia Vickery, 6-1, 6-0, to earn her 400th career win, which includes all levels. "It was hard to play someone from the United States who I know very well," Lepchenko said. "Ive practiced with her often before. I knew this match would be mentally tough but was just trying to play the best tennis I could." She will meet third-seeded Angelique Kerber in Saturday nights semifinal. Kerber topped Garbine Muguruza, 6-2, 6-1. "She is definitely one of the tougher lefty opponents out there, so I will have to play and fight for every single point," Lepchenko said. "Im going to stay focused on my game and hopefully things will work out well for me."
