Lyle Taylor and Adebayo Akinfenwa fired AFC Wimbledon into Sky Bet League One for the first time as they beat Plymouth 2-0 in the League Two play-off final at Wembley. Fourteen years after the original Wimbledon was moved to Milton Keynes, Neal Ardleys men booked their place in Englands third highest league, setting up a meeting with rivals MK Dons and completing a remarkable rise from their ninth-tier start in 2002.In a game that produced few chances, it took until the 78th minute for Taylor to make the breakthrough as he slotted the ball past Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick. Adebayo Akinfenwa sealed Wimbledons promotion to League 1 with a penalty in stoppage time With several minutes of injury time added on, Wimbledon were awarded a penalty with almost the final kick of the game which Akinfenwa powered home after a heated discussion with regular penalty taker Callum Kennedy.It was Wimbledon who went closest in the opening exchanges, and it came from a free-kick as the ball was lofted into the back post with Taylor waiting eight yards out, but he couldnt get the touch to take it past McCormick. AFC Wimbledon have been promoted to League 1 after beating Plymouth 2-0 And while Plymouth had seen the better of the ball, it was the Dons who continued to create the better chances and did so twice in quick succession with McCormick again smothering the danger from Taylor before Paul Robinson just hit wide after Tom Elliott headed into his path.The Pilgrims could only muster half-chances during the first 45 minutes as Jake Jervis tried to get a shot away but could only see it blocked by Darius Charles. The defender was there again to keep out a fine cross from Gregg Wylde that was seeking out the quiet Jamille Matt. AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley praised his team’s performance after they secured promotion McCormick was certainly the busier of the two goalkeepers and was called into action again six minutes before the break as Kennedy found some space around 30 yards out and rifled an effort towards goal - but the goalkeeper held strongly.Wimbledon came racing out of the traps in the second half and could have had a fortuitous early goal as Plymouth defender Carl McHugh sent a looping pass back to his goalkeeper that nearly went into the bottom corner, before Elliott twice headed wide as the Dons searched to break the deadlock.

Graham Carey delivered the set-pieces, seeing his first saved by Kelle Roos before Peter Harley nodded the second into the ground and ultimately into the safe hands of the Dons stopper.Wimbledon made the breakthrough 12 minutes from time and it was semi-final extra-time goalscorer Taylor who got onto the end of a delightful Kennedy cross, flicking it into the bottom corner and sending the Dons fans into raptures, whipping off his shirt in the celebrations. Taylor celebrates scoring his sides first goal of the game It could have been an instant second as Jake Reeves powered down the right flank and squared the ball to Barry Fuller. The captain took on the shot but McCormick was instantly down to make the save with his legs. Fan favourite Akinfenwa also went close as he rose to meet Taylors cross, but the Plymouth goalkeeper was there to make a fine one-handed save before Taylor chipped a one-on-one shot straight into McCormicks arms. Adebayo Akinfenwa scores from the penalty spot Plymouth had a penalty appeal turned down in the dying minutes as Craig Tanner went down in the box under pressure from Dannie Bulman, but the referee waved away the claims.However, Wimbledon were awarded a spot kick in the dying seconds as Ade Azeez went down in the box, with Akinfenwa stepping up after a heated discussion with Kennedy as to who should take it.

The second-ranked Norwegian made her season debut after missing the LPGA Tours opening event last month in the Bahamas because of a shoulder injury. SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- A month into the season Connecticut doesnt look quite as vulnerable as many people thought. Not after beating No. 2 Notre Dame. Not after winning its 83rd straight game.Two days after narrowly earning the top-ranking in The Associated Press poll, the Huskies easily secured that title on the court with a comfortable 72-61 victory over the Fighting Irish on Wednesday night, their third straight victory over a ranked team.Coach Geno Auriemma said the Huskies (8-0) wouldnt know their winning streak stretched to more than two years if not for the media.I would think if this was the first time our program had ever been here, wed be acting a little bit different. You dont want to sound like you dont appreciate it -- but we did win 90 in a row, Auriemma said.Napheesa Collier scored 14 of her 20 points in the second half after playing just nine minutes in the first half because of foul trouble, Gabby Williams had 19 points, 12 rebounds and six assists, and Katie Lou Samuelson added 18 points to pace the Huskies.The Huskies trailed for about 2 minutes in late in the second quarter, but played with the lead most of the game as they controlled the inside, outscoring the Irish 42-30 in the paint and finishing with a 35-32 edge in rebounding.I was really disappointed in everything, execution, the inability to get the ball to Bri. Completely ineffective offensively, Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said.Brianna Turner led the Irish (8-1) with 16 points and 12 rebounds, and Lindsay Allen added 11 points.After Notre Dame tied it at 42 with just under 2 minutes left in the third quarter, the Huskies forced a pair of turnovers leading to layups by Samuelson and Williams. Collier added a pair of free throws to give Connecticut led 50-43 at the end of the third quarter.We knew they were going to hit us hard at times and we just had to hit back harder, Williams said.Auriemma said that stretch was the key.In that moment when it could have gone into the fourth quarter differently, I think it kept our confidence level high and may have put a damper on them, he said.The Huskiess stretched it to 65-54 on a 3-point play by Samuelson with 3:06 left to put the game away.ddddddddddddAuriemma said he wont get too excited about the victory.I know this is Dec. 7th and theres a long way to go between now and the end of the season, he said.BIG PICTUREUConn: The Huskies have beaten five ranked teams, including No. 2 Notre Dame and No. 3 Baylor, and have staked their claim as the clear No. 1.Notre Dame: The Irish faced adversity for the first time this season and couldnt respond as they struggled, going 3 of 14 on 3-pointers and making just 4 of 8 free throws. The Irish lost to the Huskies for a sixth straight time and have work to do if they hope to challenge Connecticut by the end of the season. No one on the roster has ever beaten the Huskies.POLL IMPLICATIONS:Two days after narrowly passing the Irish in the poll, the Huskies showed there is no doubt who deserves to be No. 1. The Irish lost to the Huskies by the same score as Baylor, so it could be a tossup as far as who is No. 2 next week.TIP-INS: The game marked the 57th time the top-rated team in The Associated Press poll faced No. 2. The No. 1 team is 36-21. ... The last time UConn was No. 1 and lost to a No. 2 was against Notre Dame in the NCAA Tournament semifinal in 2001, when the Irish rallied back after trailing by 16 points in the first half to beat the Huskies 90-75 en route to the national championship. ... The Huskies have won 27 straight road games. The record is 30 straight set by UConn (2007-11) and matched by Notre Dame (2011-15). ... The Huskies have won34 straight against ACC teams.UP NEXTUConn: The Huskies stay on the road to play at Kansas State, ending a streak of three straight games against ranked teams. They then play No. 12 Ohio State in Storrs on Dec. 19.Notre Dame: The Irish, who have played only one true road game, play six straight on the road starting Saturday at No. 16 DePaul.
