Howards blanks West Ham to earn Everton the win

LONDON -- U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard made two saves on shots from Carlos Tevez, and Everton went on to beat West Ham 2-0 Sunday in the English Premier League. Howard, on loan from Manchester United, made both saves on Tevez in the first half. The Argentina international has yet to score for West Ham since arriving from Brazil. "You can't fault the application or effort, but when you don't get anything away it puts pressure on at home," West Ham manager Alan Pardew said. Tevez also set up attempts for Lee Bowyer and Hayden Mullins. Leon Osman gave Everton the lead in the 51st minute after intercepting a headed clearance from American defender Jonathan Spector. James Vaughan made it 2-0 in injury time. "For us, that is an unbelievable result," Everton manager David Moyes said. "Big credit to all the lads. We had people playing out of position and that epitomizes the spirit we have here." Everton moved up two places to seventh and has 24 points. West Ham remains without an away win and is 17th with 14 points, two points clear of the relegation zone.

Italy
ROME -- Palermo was held to a 0-0 tie at Parma in the Italian league, dropping the Sicilian team further behind leaders Inter Milan and AS Roma. Palermo hasn't won in five games in any competition. Inter leads the league with 36 points, followed by Roma with 32 and Palermo with 28. Injury-depleted AC Milan struggled again, tying 2-2 at Cagliari. Milan played the last 15 minutes with 10 men after Andrea Pirlo received a straight red card for taking down David Suazo from behind. Cagliari dominated the first half, but Milan went ahead three minutes into the second half with a header from Alberto Gilardino. Suazo tied the score in the 53rd with a penalty kick, and Andrea Capone made it 2-1 for Cagliari in the 65th before Marco Borriello scored for Milan in the 70th. Milan, which played without Kaka and eight other injured players, is in 15th place with 12 points. The team started the season with an eight-point penalty for its role in the Italian match-fixing scandal. Fiorentina beat Lazio 1-0 on Luca Toni's 15th-minute goal in a matchup of two teams also penalized in the scandal. Inter beat Siena 2-0 Saturday, matching a 97-year-old team record with its 11th consecutive win in all competitions. Second-place AS Roma beat Atalanta 2-1 for its sixth straight league win.

Spain
MADRID, Spain -- Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos scored a goal apiece Sunday to rally Real Madrid to a 2-1 win over Athletic Bilbao, moving it into second place past Sevilla, which missed a chance to take over the lead in the Spanish league. Ronaldo, who had three other legitimate scoring opportunities, slalomed through the opposing defense in the 65th minute to equalize 1-1. Roberto Carlos the scored the winner in the 82nd minute with a carefully placed shot off a back-pass from Michel Salgado. It was Madrid's fourth straight win and gave it 29 points, one less than FC Barcelona and one more than Sevilla, which lost to Espanyol 2-1. Barcelona was held to a 1-1 draw Saturday at Levante. In other games Sunday, it was: Real Sociedad 0, Getafe 0; Villarreal 2, Gimnastic Tarragona 0; Mallorca 2, Celta Vigo 2; Deportivo La Coruna 0, Racing Santander 0 and Zaragoza 1, Osasuna 2. Ronaldo and David Beckham came on as second-half substitutes for Madrid, and Ruud van Nistelrooy nearly scored off a long header from Beckham in the 55th. The Dutchman later had a goal disallowed by an offside. Raul Tamudo and Luis Garcia scored a goal each to give Espanyol a 2-1 win over Sevilla. Sevilla striker Frederic Kanoute converted a 27th-minute penalty to give his team the lead, his 10th league goal of the season. Right back Daniel Alves nearly added another with a spectacular overhead kick. Tamudo, who earned a yellow card in the first half for falling in the penalty area, equalized in the 68th after controlling the ball, flicking it backward and side-footing a shot into the net. Luis Garcia then scored the winner in the 80th on a cross by Ivan de la Pena.

Germany
BERLIN -- Schalke failed to regain the lead in the Bundesliga when it was held to a 0-0 tie at FC Nuremberg. Schalke, which had been in first place for two weeks, fell behind Werder Bremen on goal difference after its four-game winning streak ended. Bremen beat Hertha Berlin 3-1 Saturday. Naohiro Takahara produced the first Bundesliga hat trick of the season as Eintracht Frankfurt edged Alemannia Aachen 3-2. Takahara beat defenders in the 14th and 62nd minutes and chipped over the goalkeeper in the 43rd. The Japan international had drawn criticism for wasting numerous chances in a 0-0 UEFA Cup tie against Newcastle three days ago. "Thursday, I had all those chances," Takahara said. "Today I had to show how I could play." Netherlands
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands -- Ajax and AZ Alkmaar each won in the Dutch league to stay close to leader PSV Eindhoven. Third-place Ajax beat Willem II Tilburg 6-0, with Klaas Jan Huntelaar scoring two goals. Tom de Mul scored another and set up the first three. AZ Alkmaar stayed in second place after beating Excelsior Rotterdam 5-0. Danny Koevermans and Shota Arveladze scored two goals each. PSV, which beat Vitesse Arnhem 1-0 Saturday, leads the league with 40 points, five more than AZ and six more than Ajax. Feyenoord, with 29 points, beat SC Heerenveen 4-3.

Scotland
FALKIRK, Scotland -- Rangers lost to Falkirk 1-0 on Mark Twaddle's 26th-minute goal, allowing Celtic to open a 16-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premier League. Rangers stayed in second place with 28 points. Celtic leads with 44.

Greece
ATHENS -- Aris beat Panathinaikos 1-0 in the Greek league and dropped the Athens team into third place. Guilherme Weisheimer scored the only goal in the 54th minute. Panathinaikos' third loss of the season left it with 28 points, five behind league leader Olympiakos. AEK Athens, which beat Ionikos 2-0 Saturday, is in second with 30 points.

France
PARIS -- Mathieu Bodmer, Mathieu Debuchy and Souleymane Youla all scored second-half goals and Lille rallied past Nancy 3-1 Sunday to claim a share of second place with Lens and Sochaux in the French league. Lyon won 1-0 at Le Mans on Saturday for its 13th victory in 14 games and improved to 43 points, 14 ahead of Lens, Lille and Sochaux, which kept pace with a 1-0 victory over Marseille on Sunday. Lens remained just ahead of Lille on goals scored, while Sochaux was just behind on goal difference.

Portugal
LISBON -- Braga beat Academica 4-2 Sunday to keep pace in the Portuguese first-division with front-runner Porto, which won its 12th-round match to move further atop the table. Helder Postiga and Ricardo Quaresma both scored in the second half to give FC Porto a 2-0 win over Boavista in an northern derby Saturday, extending its league lead to five points over Sporting. The victory gave Porto 31 points and moved it further ahead of second-place Sporting, which lost 2-0 Friday to Benfica in a Lisbon derby. On Sunday, Braga got goals from four different players to beat Academica and improve to 23 points.
