DUNEDIN, New Zealand -- The Western Force hung on with only 13 men on the field for the last 10 minutes to beat the Highlanders 31-29 in Super Rugby on Saturday. The Force had two men, including former Wallabies No. 8 Ben McCalman, in the sin-bin in the dying minutes of the match, but were able to resist a late Highlanders surge to post a four-try, bonus point win. The victory followed last weeks 32-7 win over the Melbourne Rebels, giving the Perth-based Force their first back-to-back wins since April 2011. Replacement flyhalf Hayden Parker scored a try for the Highlanders in the final minute but missed a wide-angled conversion which would have given the Dunedin-based side a draw. The Force have now won six of their eight games against the Highlanders since their admission to Super Rugby in 2006. The Force took a 21-16 lead at halftime after a first half in which the lead changed hands four times. Hooker Nathan Charles, flyhalf Sias Ebersohn and McCalman each scored tries to give the visitors the early advantage. Winger Junior Rasolea then added the fourth, bonus point try in the 56th minute, giving the Force a 31-16 lead which allowed them to weather the Highlanders rally in the last quarter. The home side fought back with tries by Parker and centre Malakai Fekitoa, but couldnt bridge the gap, even with the Force short on men. Ebersohn scored a brilliant try from an intercept and kicked five goals from five attempts -- four conversions and a penalty -- for a personal tally of 16 points. "Its going well," Force captain Matt Hodgson said. "I think were playing some good football now, starting games strong and, like you saw there, finishing it off with 13 men." The Force play the unbeaten defending champion Chiefs in their next match. The Highlanders were unable to put concerted pressure on the Force and defended poorly at times, allowing the visitors to pull away. "We probably didnt play quite the right footy in that first half," captain Ben Smith said. "We let in a couple of soft tries which came back to bite us a bit." ------ Western Force 31 (Nathan Charles, Sias Ebersohn, Ben McCalman, Junior Rasolea tries; Sias Ebersohn 4 conversions, penalty), Highlanders 29 (Shaun Treeby, Malakai Fekitoa, Hayden Parker tries; Lima Sopaga conversion, 4 penalties).

About halfway through the game, Roberto Luongo was forced to exit with an upper-body injury after making 11 saves. Al Montoya came in to relieve him, and he stopped all 22 shots sent his way. Cam Ward made 27 saves on 28 shots for Carolina. Brandon Pirri and Jonathan Huberdeau were credited with assists on the lone goal. About halfway through the game, Luongo was forced to make a sprawling glove save on Victor Rask who got in behind the defense. The backhand attempt was stopped to preserve the 1-0 lead, but at the next timeout, Luongo left the game. Montoya was tested quickly when Carolina went on the power play when play resumed. He made one save on the power play, and he faced four more in the period before finally getting a break at the second intermission. Hes played so well for us, so hopefully its something minor, Montoya said of Luongo. Ward was under siege from the opening faceoff. He faced two shots just 20 seconds into the game, and the third decided the contest when Bjugstad snuck the loose puck past the nnetminder for his eighth of the season.dddddddddddd. We figured out a way to win, thats the main thing, said Bjugstad after the Panthers earned points for the third time in four games. On the other end of the ice, Floridas defense shut down the Carolina attack. The Hurricanes were only able to get six shots on Luongo in the first period while Ward faced 15. In the final period, the Hurricanes overwhelmed the Panthers, but they were still unable to find the back of the net. Brian Campbells sliding play broke up a Carolina 2-on-1 shorthanded breakaway that could have tied the game, helping to send the Hurricanes to their third straight loss and sixth in seven games. Montoya was peppered with shots in a complete reversal of the first period. While Ward only faced five shots, Montoya had to make 17 saves, including two in the closing minutes with the extra attacker on the ice for Carolina. We had more than enough chances to get one, maybe two (goals), but couldnt execute, Hurricanes center Jeff Skinner said. Game Notes Campbell has played in 243 consecutive games ...
