    WINDSOR, Ont. [b]Kevin Hogan Jersey[/b] . -- Olympic medallist Jennifer Abel of Laval, Que., earned her first individual podium finish this season on the FINA World Series diving circuit, placing third in the womens three-metre springboard final on Saturday. World champion Tingmao Shi led China to a 1-2 finish with 398.45 points and Han Wang was second at 385.05. Abel stayed entrenched in third place through the entire five-dive final and collected 356.15. Pamela Ware of Beloeil, Que., placed fifth. Abels best result in her three previous World Series appearances this season was a fifth last month in London. "It was super important for me to get that medal," said Abel, a silver medallist with Ware on three-metre synchro on Friday. "This is where I want to be at this point in the season. I had a difficult start but the work Ive put in is showing and Im gaining more confidence." After five events, Wang stands first at 82 points in the World Series standings. He Zi, who dove for China at the first four events, is second at 70 and Tania Cagnotto of Italy is third at 56. Ware is in fourth spot at 48 and Abel is sixth. The Canadians missed the fourth stop in Moscow earlier this month because it conflicted with the Grand Prix competition in Gatineau, Que, which was also a selection meet for the FINA World Cup and the Commonwealth Games. On mens three-metre, world champion He Chong of China took gold. Jack Laugher of Britain placed second and Ilya Kvasha of Ukraine finished third. Two-time Olympian Riley McCormick of Victoria was sixth in his semifinal and took seventh place overall.

Dalton completed his only pass and led the Bengals to a touchdown in his only drive -- one that took four minutes to finish -- and the Cincinnati Bengals ended the preseason with a 27-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night. MANCHESTER, England -- Sitting in the executive seats high up at Etihad Stadium, Mario Balotelli began life at Liverpool by watching his new team ruthlessly dismantled by the club he left 19 months ago. Manchester City showed just how difficult it will be to dethrone as English champion by beating one of its predicted title rivals 3-1 on Monday, making it two wins from two tough opening games of the Premier League season. Stevan Jovetic scored twice and fellow striker Sergio Aguero netted seconds after coming on as a substitute for City, demonstrating that the champions strength in depth up front has hardly diminished since selling the combustible Balotelli to AC Milan in January 2013. In fact, it has probably got even better. With Balotelli added to the ranks for 16 million pounds ($26.5 million) on Monday, Liverpool strengthened the one area of its squad that looked light following the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona last month. On this evidence, though, the Reds will struggle to close the two-point gap they finished behind City last season. "These games are games of six points," City manager Manuel Pellegrini said. "When you play at home, it is important not to drop points against important teams. Liverpool is an important team and will be fighting for the title at the end." Jovetic was a forgotten man last season after his big-money move from Fiorentina, his career stalling during a year that was blighted by injury and failure to break into Citys star-studded attack. The Montenegro striker starred for City in preseason, though, and with Aguero working his way to full fitness after the World Cup and Alvaro Negredo out injured, Jovetic is taking his chance to make a statement to Pellegrini. He pounced on a defensive lapse by Liverpool debutant Alberto Moreno to open the scoring in the 41st minute with a fierce low drive before starting and finishing a moove that also involved Samir Nasri for his second goal in the 55th, leaving Liverpool to regret not making the most of a decent start to the match.

Aguero added the third in the 69th with his first touches of the ball after coming on for the injured Edin Dzeko, running onto Jesus Navas curling pass, taking a touch and sidefooting in at the near post. There were barely 20 seconds between Aguero jogging onto the pitch and wheeling away in celebration at his second goal of the season -- both as a substitute. City defender Pablo Zabaleta turned the ball into his own net under pressure from Rickie Lambert in the 83rd minute to deny the hosts a second straight clean sheet after an opening 2-0 win at Newcastle. But its so far, so good for Pellegrinis side, which joined Tottenham, Chelsea and Swansea on six points. For Liverpool, there is excitement at the arrival of Balotelli, but a fear that City may again be too good this season. "I am really looking forward to working with him," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said of Balotelli. "One thing he doesnt lack is confidence. "I have been very encouraged by the guy himself. He is very honest. He knows his flaws and faults and he is looking for someone to help him. There is no better club for him." Balotelli is one of nine signings Liverpool has made this summer with the proceeds of the Suarez sale. It will take them time to bed in and what Liverpool doesnt have is time, especially with City and Chelsea starting the season in such unforgiving mood. "Up until they scored, we were arguably the better side," Rodgers said. "But we switched off and Jovetic has finished it very well. We started the second half reasonably well and then we gave away two poor goals." Pellegrini said Dzekos injury wasnt serious and the striker is likely to be fit for Stoke at home on Saturday.
