KITCHENER, Ont. -- The Olympic curling dream is still alive for the two dozen rinks set to compete at this weeks Capital One Road to the Roar competition. However, the road to the Sochi Games remains a long one. Only four teams will advance to the final qualification stage and it wont be easy to get there given the quality of competition at the Nov. 5-10 tournament. Champions from every major level will be in the field for the triple-knockout event at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex. Gold medallists from the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and the 2006 Turin Games are on hand along with former world champions and the reigning Tim Hortons Brier champ. The goal is to reach next months Canadian Olympic curling trials in Winnipeg, an event that already has 12 of the 16 available spots booked. The four remaining openings -- two for the men and two for the women -- will be filled by the end of play Sunday. "It is a unique event -- 12 teams for two spots," national champion Brad Jacobs said of the mens draw in a recent interview. "If you dont bring your A game (this) week, forget about your Olympic dreams. Really thats what it comes down to." Jacobs guided his Northern Ontario rink to victory at the Brier this year and followed it up with a silver medal at the world championships. Hell be challenged this week by seasoned veterans like 2010 Olympic champion John Morris, 2006 Olympic champion Brad Gushue of St. Johns, N.L., and 2006 world silver medallist Jean-Michel Menard of St-Romuald, Que. Morris, who teamed with skip Kevin Martin to win a world title in 2008 and Olympic gold in Vancouver, split from Martins rink last spring. He later joined Jim Cotters Kelowna, B.C., team and will handle skip duties while Cotter throws last stones. The womens field also boasts plenty of star power. There is 2007 world champion Kelly Scott of Kelowna, 2010 Olympic silver medallist Cheryl Bernard and 2006 Olympic bronze medallist Shannon Kleibrink, both of Calgary. "The field in Canada is amazing and its really deep," Bernard said. "I think any team at the pre-trials or trials could represent our country well at the Olympics. "So that being said, Im proud that we have that depth of field but it also makes it a lot of work for all the teams to be able to rise to the top." The womens field is rounded out by Barb Spencer of Winnipeg, Tracy Horgan of Sudbury, Ont., Krista McCarville of Thunder Bay, Ont., Crystal Webster of Calgary, Val Sweeting of Edmonton, Amber Holland of Regina, Laura Crocker of Edmonton, Renee Sonnenberg of Grande Prairie, Alta., and Cathy Auld of Mississauga, Ont. Other mens rinks include Toronto skips Mark Kean and Greg Balsdon, Ottawas Bryan Cochrane, Jake Higgs of Glencoe, Ont., Steve Laycock of Saskatoon, Rob Fowler of Brandon, Man., Rob Rumfeldt of Guelph, Ont., and Joe Frans of Bradford, Ont. The Olympic curling trials -- the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings -- begin Dec. 1 in Winnipeg. The mens skips that have already qualified include Kevin Martin and Kevin Koe, both from Edmonton, Glenn Howard of Coldwater, Ont., John Epping of Toronto and Mike McEwen and Jeff Stoughton, both from Winnipeg. Edmontons Heather Nedohin, Saskatoons Stefanie Lawton, Sherry Middaugh of Coldwater, Ont., Ottawas Rachel Homan of Ottawa and Jennifer Jones and Chelsea Carey, both from Winnipeg, have already qualified on the womens side.

FRISCO, Texas -- Toronto FC ended a difficult early-season stretch with the kind of game they didnt want. The Reds were dominated in possession and conceded an astounding 16 corner kicks to Western Conference leader FC Dallas, but still managed to hang in until a devastating goal in the final minutes handed them a frustrating 2-1 loss Saturday night at Toyota Stadium. Blas Perezs score off a free kick in the 88th minute kept TFC (3-3) from leaving North Texas with an encouraging draw and instead left the players looking for answers. The loss was the third in four games for Toronto, a stretch that included three road games. The Reds now get a week off before returning to action May 3 against New England at home. "We have to be honest with ourselves tonight and just say we werent good enough," said midfielder Michael Bradley, who returned after missing a game with a strained quadriceps. "You have to have a mentality that says youre not afraid to make mistakes. Youre not afraid to play. Youre not afraid to really get after it. And we fell short in those areas tonight." That much is clear from the numbers. FC Dallas controlled 61 percent of possession-- 63 percent in the second half-- and those 16 corners were a club record. Toronto was also outshot 16-11 and allowed 23 open-play crosses. "We were a little timid at times," midfielder Kyle Bekker said. "We gave the ball away too cheaply. We just have to have the confidence to play. Too many times I think were afraid to play out. We just need to grow and get a little more confidence, but I think that will come as we keep playying together.dddddddddddd" Still, the Reds were on the verge of picking up a point. They grabbed an early lead when rookie Issey Nakajima-Farran followed his own shot after Dallas Chris Seitz made a diving save and blasted in the rebound in the 21st minute. They were able to get some quality scoring chances off counter-attacks, among them a controversial non-call in the 75th minute after Dallas defender Kellyn Acosta took down Toronto forward Gilberto in the box. "Oh its just a blatant penalty," TFC coach Ryan Nelsen said. "I mean hes got the inside line on him. The guys out of position, and he just pushed him in the back. Its just absolutely ridiculous. You dont push a guy like that in the back." For the most part the night belonged to FC Dallas (5-1-1), which pushed the ball forward again and again for shots, but mostly for corners. A team that lives on set pieces, having scored nine of its MLS-high 15 goals from them entering the game, Dallas finally took advantage of its many chances. The tying goal came in the 37th, when free-kick specialist Michel curled a corner in front of the net and Matt Hedges rose to head it in. The winner was also off a set piece, a long free kick from Michel that was headed by Stephen Keel and Hedges and fell to the foot of Perez, who slipped it past TFC goalkeeper Julio Cesar for the killing blow. "Its frustrating because we have to find ways to get results on our bad days, and we didnt do that today," defender Justin Morrow said. "If we want to make the playoffs, these are the games we have to get points from." ' ' '
