KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Led by a new quarterback in Alex Smith and a new coach in Andy Reid, the Kansas City Chiefs so far have looked nothing like the team that had the worst record in the NFL last season. The all-red outfits they donned for the first time Sunday drove home the point. Playing nearly mistake-free for the second straight week, Smith threw for 223 yards and two touchdowns against the ball-hawking Dallas Cowboys, and the Chiefs defence held when it needed to in the fourth quarter to preserve a 17-16 victory. "When youre trying to build something, you need to win games like this," said Smith, who also had a game-high 57 yards rushing. "These are the games you look at in November and December. You need these types of wins, not only the calibre of the win but the style of win. "Its not always going to be pretty," he said, "but you have to find a way to bear down." The Chiefs did that marvelously in the fourth quarter. Dwayne Bowes go-ahead touchdown catch and Ryan Succops field goal had staked them to a 17-13 lead, but the Cowboys were on the move in the closing minutes. After Tony Romo threw three straight incompletions, though, Dan Bailey had to kick a 53-yard field goal. The Chiefs regained possession with 3:55 left. Jamaal Charles helped them grind out a couple first downs, and a pass interference call on Morris Claiborne on third-and-10 gave Kansas City another set of downs. That kept Romo from having any time to orchestrate some late-game magic. "We ask a lot of certain players on this team and they showed up," Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers said. "We did a great job of holding them down." Romo, who was playing with bruised ribs, finished 30 of 42 for 298 yards. His favourite target was Dez Bryant, who had nine catches for 141 yards and the Cowboys only touchdown. "You got to realize, you cant forget all the work that you put in to go out and be a good football team," Bryant said. The Cowboys (1-1) forced the New York Giants into six turnovers in their opener, but couldnt turn the same trick against Kansas City. After preaching ball security all week, the Chiefs got through their second straight game without throwing an interception or losing a fumble. "Takeaways and points, man, on both sides of the ball. We try to eliminate the turnovers and we try to score points," Reid said. "Its as simple as that." The Chiefs, coming off an uplifting win at Jacksonville, were amped for his first game as their coach at Arrowhead Stadium. A capacity crowd roared when they rolled onto the field in all-red uniforms, departing from traditional white pants to signify the start of a new era. They kept on rolling, too. Kansas City marched 77 yards on the opening series, the highlight coming when Smith scrambled 17 yards on third-and-15 and executed a Fosbury Flop over a defender for a first down. Smith capped the drive with a short TD toss to Charles. Thats when the Romo-to-Bryant connection got on track. Bryant outwrestled cornerback Brandon Flowers for a 53-yard catch that helped set up Baileys first field goal. He then hauled in a short TD catch to give Dallas a 10-7 lead. The Cowboys blocked Ryan Succops 57-yard try to carry their lead into halftime, and then Bryant caught three more passes to set up another field goal in the third quarter. But the Chiefs answered when Smith hit Bowe on a 12-yard slant for a 14-13 lead later in the quarter. Dallas fumbled on its next two possessions -- Lance Dunbar coughed it up first and then Romo was strip-sacked by Ron Parker. But its defence stiffened each time, first forcing a field goal and then getting a sack from Bruce Carter to push the Chiefs out of Succops range. The Cowboys marched deep into Chiefs territory one last time, but again couldnt find the end zone. And when Romo got the ball back, there was hardly any time left. "We had a good plan and did some things that gave us a chance to win this football game. We put ourselves in position, but we didnt," Romo said. "Ultimately, thats all that matters."

Byron Ritchie and Jacob Micflikier each scored twice to lead the way for Canada, which jumped out to a 3-0 first-period lead before letting Rochester back into the game in the second. "It was nice to go into the locker-room after the first period with that lead but you had the feeling it wasnt over," Canada coach Doug Shedden said. "Then a couple of mistakes, a couple of little things and in this business you just cant make those little mistakes because they add up to big things, and once they made it 4-3 we had a monster on our hands." Canada was able to re-establish momentum in the third period, and two more goals put the game out of reach. "I was really third with our third period, I thought it was textbook hockey," Shedden said. Canada will play Swiss club HC Geneve-Servette in Mondays semifinal. Geneve-Servette had an automatic berth to the semis after finishing first in its group. The game will reunite Shedden and Geneve-Servette head coach Chris McSorley, who was an assistant coach for Canada when it won last years Spengler Cup. "(McSorleys) teams playing a more North American style of hockey. They chip pucks in and theyre a hard-forechecking team that drives the net hard, so I think youre going to see similar styles," Shedden said. After starting sluggishly in a 3-2 loss against host HC Davos on Saturday, Canada came out flying against the Americans. Ritchie gave Canada a 1-0 lead at the 7:30 mark, then Miicflikiers two goals put the Canadians up 3-0 heading into the first intermission.dddddddddddd Rochester came back in the second, capitalizing on Canadian mistakes. "We made a blind pass behind the net on their first goal and then we took a penalty and before you know it its 4-3. So our management skills were kind of dumb in that area," Shedden said. Shedden said the team went back to basics in the third period, and goals from Ritchie and Alexandre Giroux clinched the win. "Our point was we get hard forechecking and we stick to our (system) and get the turnovers, and dont let them in our zone," Shedden said. "I thought we did it really well in the third period." Derrick Walser also scored for Canada, while Ahren Spylo added three assists. Chris Mason got the start in goal for Canada and gave up three goals over 22 shots over the first 40 minutes. He left after the second period with an injured groin. "He came to me after the second period and said I should have pulled myself after the first goal because thats when I felt it, but I thought I could stick it out," Shedden said. Allen York replaced Mason in the third and stopped all five shots he faced. Nathan Lieuwen started fort Rochester and surrendered three goals on 14 shots in the first period. Matt Hackett came in at the start of the second and stopped 19 of 22 shots the rest of the way. Alexander Hutchings, Dan Catenacci and Joel Armia scored for Rochester, which is the American Hockey League affiliate of the NHLs Buffalo Sabres. Host HC Davos will face CSKA Moscow in the other semifinal. Moscow beat HC Vitkovice Steel 3-2 on Sunday to advance.
