BERLIN -- Franck Ribery scored one goal, set up two more and earned a penalty as Bayern Munich beat visiting Hertha Berlin 4-0 to extend its lead in the Bundesliga, which featured six penalties and three red cards Saturday. Ribery set up Mario Gomez to score in the fifth minute, made it 2-0 two minutes later, before sending Bastian Schweinsteiger through to score in the 13th. The French winger was brought down by Roman Hubnik in the 68th, and Gomez dispatched the spot kick a minute later. It was the 12th game in a row without conceding a goal for Bayern, which visits Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday. "If we keep playing like this, well be champions," Gomez said. Second place Borussia Moenchengladbach fell five points behind after being held 2-2 at home by Bayer Leverkusen, with Andre Schuerrle scoring in the 87th minute for the visitors. Promoted Augsburg won 1-0 at Mainz in its first Bundesliga win, when Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker converted an 88th-minute penalty. "Its fantastic for the team and above all for our fans," Augsburg coach Jos Luhukay said. "We earned this win with the necessary pinch of luck ... Its a huge relief." In Saturdays late game, both sides conceded a penalty and had a player sent off as Kaiserslautern won 2-1 at Schalke. Dorge Rostand Kouemaha scored the winner in the 72nd, with a header past Lars Unnerstall, who was making his Bundesliga debut for Schalke as Ralf Faehrmann was sent off in the 28th. Faehrmann was adjudged to have brought down Kouemaha and was shown a straight red card, with Kaiserslautern captain Christian Tiffert scoring the resultant penalty in the 30th. Referee Peter Sippel restored the sides numerical parity and awarded another penalty when he sent off Kaiserslautern defender Rodnei in the 61st, when Jose Manuel Jurado tumbled under the Brazilians challenge. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar duly converted a minute later. "It was never a penalty, it wasnt a foul," Tiffert said. "If wed lost the game, wed be giving out about the referee, but it turned out OK." Elsewhere, it finished Stuttgart 2, Hoffenheim 0; and Wolfsburg 2, Nuremberg 1. Hubnik prevented Ribery from scoring in the second minute with a goal-saving block after the Frenchman rounded former Bayern goalkeeper keeper Thomas Kraft. Ribery was not deterred, running at the panic stricken Hertha defence before finding Gomez, whose low shot went in off the post. Ribery got ahead of another former Bayern player, Christian Lell, to deflect Jerome Boatengs cross past Kraft from close range, and the 28-year-old created more mayhem in the visiting defence before finding Schweinsteiger, who shot first time to the left of the unfortunate Kraft. With Schweinsteiger dictating play from midfield, Ribery and Gomez might have scored more, and Thomas Mueller missed on open goal from four meters (yards) in the 35th. Krafts reflex save denied Philipp Lahm after the break, and the Hertha goalkeeper did well to snatch the ball from the feet of Gomez. After earning the penalty, Ribery let Gomez claim his 10th goal of the season. "Were still letting a lot of goal chances go," Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes said. "(But) I have to say that my team plays with great concentration and is, above all, very hungry for success." Moenchengladbach will rue several missed chances in its 2-2 draw against Leverkusen, which had defender Gonzalo Castro sent off for comments to the linesman in the 68th. Stefan Reinartz scored for Leverkusen in the 20th, before Moenchengladbachs Mike Hanke struck the crossbar in the 37th. Marco Reus should have scored in the 55th, but Sven Bender got back to make the covering tackle, and Hanke missed an even better chance shortly afterward. Reus finally scored in the 65th, when he rounded goalkeeper Bernd Leno before slotting into the unguarded net. The home side took full advantage of Castros sending off when Patrick Herrmann saw Leno off his line and lobbed him from distance in the 72nd. However, Schuerrle unleashed a dipping shot that gave Marc-Andre ter Stegen no chance, and Leno denied Reus from point blank in injury time. "It feels like a loss," Hanke said. "We were the better team and we created so many chances." In Stuttgart, Japan striker Shinji Okazaki controlled a Tamas Hajnal free kick with his left foot before scoring with his right in the 48th, and Pavel Pogrebnyak made the game safe when he earned a penalty and converted it in the 77th. In Wolfsburg, Mario Mandzukic headed the home side ahead in the 24th, before Christian Eigler -- who was making his return from injury -- equalized in the 70th. Eigler injured himself in the process and appeared distraught to go off injured two minutes later. Mandzukic sealed the win from the penalty spot in the 83rd. Elite Matt Ryan Jersey . Bostons superstars didnt make the plays down the stretch, as Paul Pierce missed a game-winning attempt at the end of regulation and Rajon Rondo was clearly bothered by a dislocated left elbow. Miami now leads the series, 3-1, with Game 5 slated for Wednesday in Miami. Dwyane Wade scored 28 points with nine rebounds, Bosh added a double-double of 20 points and 12 boards, but the big star was James, who scored 35 points to go with 14 rebounds. Kroy Biermann Jersey . Hamilton tallied twice in the second period, including the game-winner on a penalty shot, and MacIntyre stopped 27 of 28 shots to lead the Marlies to a 2-1 victory over the visiting Rochester Americans in American Hockey League action on Wednesday. ...

The draft is scheduled for May 6 at noon ET, live on TSN. In total, seven CIS standouts cracked the 15-player list, equaling the number from the second report published by the CFL on Dec. 12 and one less than on Sept. 19. Defensive tackle Stefan Charles from the University of Regina is the top CIS prospect going into the draft. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound junior is ranked second overall behind Oregon linebacker Bo Lokombo, who also held the No. 1 spot in December. Charles, who hails from Oshawa, Ont., topped the initial Scouting Bureau list back in September but had dropped to No. 4 before Christmas. Other CIS all-stars on the radar of CFL teams include Calgary defensive lineman Linden Gaydosh at No. 3, McMaster offensive tackle Matt Sewell at No. 4, McMaster defensive end Ben DAguilar at No. 7, Regina offensive lineman Brett Jones at No. 8, Calgary linebacker Mike Edeem at No.dddddddddddd 10 and Laval wide receiver Seydou Junior Haidara at No. 11. Gaydosh stays put on the new list. Sewell and DAguilar are both down two spots. Jones and Edem are up three and four positions, respectively, while Haidara makes his first appearance on the prospect list five months after helping the Rouge et Or capture a record-setting seventh Vanier Cup. After being ranked fifth in September and 13th following the CIS season, Calgary running back Steven Lumbala was left off the final Top 15. A year ago, Ben Heenan, an offensive lineman from the University of Saskatchewan offensive, topped the first two Scouting Bureau lists before dropping to second place in the third and final rankings. In May, he became the sixth CIS player in as many years – and the 10th in the past 13 years - to be selected first overall in the CFL Draft when the Saskatchewan Roughriders called his name at No. 1. The CFLs Scouting Bureau is comprised of CFL scouts, player personnel directors and general managers from the leagues eight teams. ' ' '
