The Caribbean All Stars are coming back home with there heads held high. They tied South Korea 1-1 in there second and final game on Saturday night. Stern John scored in the 46th minute to put the All Stars up for the first time in the series.

The celebrations were short lived as the Koreans came back to tie just minutes after John's strike. Keeping the score line clean was Jamaica's Arron Lawrence, probably the best goalie in the Caribbean. He kept the All Stars in the game with some quick thinking and good saves under a barrage of shots in the first half.

Yorke puts away another

"At £12 million, Dwight Yorke is looking like a bargain." That was the comment from the Sky Sports commentator watching Dwight Yorke's performance versus Blackburn Rovers. Manchester Untied defeated Rovers 3-2 at home to keep pressure on league leaders Aston Villa.

Two of United's goals had Yorke's name written on them. Yorke out muscled a Rovers player just inside of their half and released English International Paul Scholes to open the scoring in the 32nd minute. In the 43rd minute Yorke scored his tenth goal of the season and his eighth goal in league competition on a brillant strike past the hapless goalkeeper.

Manchester United were leading 3-0 after the 58th minute when they almost salvaged a draw from the jaws of victory. They allowed Rovers back in the game with some weak defending and relaxed play in the midfield. Rovers came back with two goals in the 65th and 74th minute of play. However, that was not enough to defeat United as they moved into second place in the Premiership.

In other action Shaka Hislop and West Ham defeated Leicester City 3-2.

In the shooting range...

There was no game between Hibernian and St. Mirren on Saturday. A chemical spill on the M8 highway caused the St. Mirren bus to be stuck for two hours. It was decided that it would have been unfair to the St. Mirren players to play the game after the long wait on the bus. The game is rescheduled for the 24th of November.

Leonson Lewis and Estrelle Amadorra tied Vitoria Guimaraes 1-1 on Saturday.

In Switzerland, Jerren Nixon and FC Zurich tied Lussane Sports 3-3.
