Republic of Ireland moved second in World Cup qualifying Group D after a 3-1 victory in Moldova. Jonas Jerebko Jersey . Martin ONeills side were ahead after just two minutes with Shane Long opening the scoring after racing onto Wes Hoolahans through ball.However, after dominating proceedings, they were pegged back in added time at the end of the half by Igor Bugaevs first strike since June 2011 and Moldovas first goal of the campaign. The visitors hit back after the break though thanks to James McCleans second-half double to claim their second win of the campaign, moving to seven points and just behind group leaders Serbia on goal difference. Republic of Irelands James McClean celebrates Knowing a win would put them in an excellent position in Group D following Wales earlier draw with Georgia, Ireland made the perfect start as Hoolahans pass released Long and he curled the ball past Nicolae Calancea and into the far corner.ONeill brought in Hoolahan and Glen Whelan following the 1-0 victory over Georgia last Thursday, and his side were well and truly on the front foot in the opening stages and nearly doubled their advantage in the 13th minute but McClean fired wide from James McCarthys cross.The visitors continued to threaten with Seamus Coleman standing a cross up to the far post for Long, but the Southampton strikers header was blocked by Vitalie Bordian. Glenn Whelan (L) challenges Gheorghe Andronic Whelan then fired wide from the edge of the penalty area before McCleans free-kick sailed over the bar as Ireland did everything but extend their advantage.And it came back to haunt them as Moldova, who rarely threatened in the opening 45 minutes, found themselves level in added time at the end of the first-half. With Ireland caught high up the field, Bugaev raced onto Alexandru Gatcans through ball and picked out the far corner with a cool finish. Republic of Ireland manager Martin ONeill claims he is happy with the performance of his side as they beat Moldova 3-1 in a Group D World Cup Qualifier. Buoyed by their finish to the first half, Moldova resumed in confident mood and went close within two minutes of the restart when Alexandru Dedov cut inside from the left and thumped a dipping right-foot shot into Randolphs midriff.The Ireland keepers evening became more uncomfortable two minutes later when he could only punch a high ball to Eugen Zasavitchi under pressure from Gatcan, but the midfielders first-time shot was well blocked by Ciaran Clark.A concerted response was required and it started almost immediately with McClean getting his head to a Jonathan Walters cross, but failing to trouble Calancea, who then had to field Hoolahans skidding 54th-minute shot. Martin ONeills side are second in Group D, level on points with Serbia ONeill was forced to make a change with 28 minutes remaining after Long went down clutching his hamstring and was replaced by winger Callum ODowda, a move which saw Walters promoted to the lone striker role.Perhaps sensing a rare positive result, Moldova retreated as they attempted to cling onto a point, but succumbed with 69 minutes played when Ireland finally calmed fraying nerves. Stephen Ward celebrates with James McClean Hoolahan picked out McCarthy on the edge of the box and although his shot was weak, it fell to Walters who controlled the ball and then stepped aside for McClean to slot it into the bottom corner.Moldova visibly wilted and they were hit again within seven minutes when Coleman carved his way into the penalty area and chipped the ball across to McClean, who volleyed it sweetly past the helpless Calancea to wrap up the points. Republic of Ireland captain Seamus Coleman claims the three points against Moldova are what mattered and insists the performance isnt important.

PETERSBURG, Fla.LOS ANGELES -- B.J. Denker figured Southern California would come out sizzling for its new coach. He figured if Arizona could survive that early surge, the Wildcats could rally to ruin Ed Orgerons debut. Denker was right about how Thursday night went down. The Wildcats just waited a few minutes too long to get going. Nelson Agholor caught seven passes for 161 yards, Javorius Allen rushed for two touchdowns and USC got off to an impressive start under interim coach Orgeron with a 38-31 victory. Denker passed for 363 yards and four touchdowns for the Wildcats (3-2, 0-2) in their second straight loss. Although Arizona outscored USC 28-10 from the final minute of the first half onward, Denker couldnt lead the Wildcats out of their early 25-point hole. "It was 100 per cent tempo," said Denker, who went 28 for 44. "If we had the tempo and pace in the first and second quarters that we had late in the third and the fourth, it would have been a different game." KaDeem Carey rushed for 138 yards in his eighth straight 100-yard game for Arizona, while Nate Phillips and David Richards also caught touchdown passes. Once the Wildcats recovered from the USC offences biggest plays early on, they controlled much of the second half. "We waited too late to get going," Arizona linebacker Marquis Flowers said. "We waited too long to try to execute, and we ran out of time. We made mistakes, and they saw the mistakes we made." Cody Kessler passed for 297 yards and two TDs as the revitalized Trojans (4-2, 1-2 Pac-12) survived Arizonas second-half rally to win for the stalwart defensive line coach who replaced the fired Lane Kiffin on Sept. 29. Orgeron set a familial mood from the moment USC entered the Coliseum, gathering the players in a circle at midfield for an emotional pep talk and prayer. "We love Coach O like a dad," linebacker Hayes Pullard said. "We look up to him. Thats a great feeling. Thats the bond you want to have with your family." Agholor caught a 62-yard touchdown pass and Tre Madden had a 63-yard TD catch in the first quarter for the Trojans, who had the Coliseum rocking as they roared to a 25-point lead in the first half. After Garic Wharton caught his second TD pass for Arizona with 4:18 to play, Silas Redd punctuated his season debut for USC with seven consecutive clock-draining runs for 43 yards in a drive that began at the Trojans 4, allowing USC to ensure a sideline shower for Orgeron and frustration for Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez. Adrian Dantley Jazz Jersey. "Everyone knew they were going to run the ball," Rodriguez said. "They were running to the short side with great success all game. We didnt get off blocks, and we didnt tackle. But give them credit ... and give Lane Kiffin credit. Lane recruited these guys, and theyre talented, and they played hard. But we didnt execute at times, missed some coverages and some opportunities. I know well be sick when we watch the film." Nearly 12 days after Kiffins stormy four-year tenure ended in a dark airport parking lot, the Trojans played with passion and excitement for Orgeron, who promised to return fun to a season dominated by drudgery. The Coliseum crowd that booed frequently last month amid chants of "Fire Kiffin!" gave several standing ovations to their Trojans in a rare Thursday night game at the historic stadium. Clay Helton, the Trojans new play-caller in Kiffins absence, dialed up an aggressive game plan that succeeded even without star receiver Marqise Lee, who sat out with a sprained knee. Justin Davis also rushed for a score for the Trojans, who racked up 546 total yards. Although USC had just two healthy scholarship receivers, Helton regularly called long, daring pass plays -- something the notoriously conservative Kiffin rarely tried. USC managed just one pass play longer than 60 yards under Kiffin this season, but the Trojans had two TD catches longer than that in the first 10 minutes against the Wildcats. Kessler threw a long pass down the middle on the Trojans first play of their second series. Agholor, the speedy sophomore who replaced Robert Woods in this seasons starting lineup, sprinted to make a fingertip catch just 3:39 in, stunning a crowd starved for exciting football. Madden caught a midrange pass over the middle a few minutes later and romped through the Arizona secondary. Davis scored from 11 yards out in the second quarter before Allen made a high dive into the end zone for a 28-3 lead. Phillips slipped behind USCs defence for a 57-yard touchdown catch 56 seconds before halftime. Richards caught a 9-yard TD pass with 6:48 to play, and Wharton pulled the Wildcats within seven points before Redd ran out the clock with a 10-yard run on third-and-8 with 1:38 left. Redd, the Penn State transfer who led USC in rushing last season, had 80 yards on the ground after missing the first five games of this season with a persistent knee injury.
