LARNACA, Cyprus -- Diana Matheson, Adriana Leon and Kaylyn Kyle scored for Canada in a 3-1 victory over Italy at the Cyprus Cup on Friday. Canada improved to 2-0 with the win after shutting out Finland 3-0 in the tournament opener two days earlier. Matheson opened the scoring against the Italians by converting a cross in the 33rd minute. She then fed Adriana Leon for a tap-in goal 10 minutes later. Early in the second half, Rhian Wilkinson crossed the ball to Kyle who scored from close range to make it a three-goal game. "We just started to press them more and once we started pressing them, we were able to win the ball higher up the field," Matheson said. Cristiana Girelli scored Italys lone goal in the 51st minute. The game was chippy at times. Canadian midfielder Sophie Schmidt was bloodied after appearing to take an elbow to the face but was in good spirits afterwards with a bandage on her cheek. Italys Elisa Bartoli was handed two yellow cards by the referee. The first came after she tripped up Canadas Christine Sinclair and the second came later in the game after she plowed into Matheson. Canadian coach John Herdman was pleased with how his team responded to the aggressive style of play. "The Italians were relentless with their pressure and when you skip a tackle, theyll leave a foot in and bring you down," he said. "And I was pretty pleased with how the girls got a bit testy as well and decided to try and match that pressure and physical intensity." Canada, which is currently ranked seventh in the world, will wrap up preliminary-round play Monday against No. 11 England at the GSP Stadium in Nicosia. A tie puts Canada into the final and will see England relegated to second in the group as Canada has more goals scored. Canada has won this tournament three times but has lost in the final the last two years: 1-0 to England last year and 2-0 to France in 2012. ED Belfour Jersey .

The Panthers added free agent Ed Dickson this off-season to go along with Greg Olsen, giving them a pair of receiving options at tight end similar to what they had in Riveras first season in 2011 with Olsen and Jeremy Shockey. "Absolutely," Rivera said when asked if the moved was designed to replicate three years ago. "You want that double threat." The Panthers became a little too predictable when the team paired Olsen with Ben Hartsock, who was known almost exclusively for his run-blocking ability. "The way it was (last season) its like heres one guy who is your primary blocker and heres one guy thats your primary receiver," Rivera said. "Now we bring Ed Dickson in and you say, Which one is which?" Rivera likes that both Dickson and Olsen are versatile enough to block and still be downfield threats. Dickson has shown good speed in training camp and has the potential to be a big-time option in the passing game. He caught 54 passes for 528 yards and five touchdowns in 2011 with the Baltimore Ravens. Dicksons numbers dropped off the past two years -- he averaged 23 receptions for 249 yards and one touchdown per season -- but the Panthers view the fourth-year veteran as a big pickup. Rivera believes Dickson will be a perfect complement to Olsen when the Panthers go to two-receiver sets because it will create mismatches. It worked in 2011. Olsen and Shockey combined for 82 receptions for 995 yards and nine touchdowns that season -- Cam Newtons first at quarterback. The Panthers didnt re-sign Shockey in 2012, instead adding Hartsock to the mix. Hartsock didnt catch a pass last seasoon.dddddddddddd. Olsen, however, had a career season with a team-high 73 receptions for 816 yards and six touchdowns. "We are trying to do those things that we did when we were first here," said Rivera, who is entering his fourth season with the Panthers. "Last year Olsen led us in receptions, so what can we do if we have another vertical threat tight end?" Dickson signed a one-year deal with the Panthers in part because he could play with Newton and Olsen. "It was an easy decision for me," Dickson said. Carolina also added free agent tight end Mike McNeill, who is primarily a blocker, to go along with young prospects Brandon Williams and D.C. Jefferson. Rivera said earlier in camp that tight end could be the toughest position on the team to make cuts this summer. "We have five tight ends we really like," Rivera said. The Panthers are also hoping the tight end position eases some of the pain of parting ways with their top four wide receivers this off-season. Carolina released Steve Smith, the franchises career leader in receptions, yards receiving and touchdowns, and allowed Brandon LaFell, Ted Ginn Jr. and Domenik Hixon to leave via free agency. Carolina added free agents Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Tiquan Underwood and drafted Kelvin Benjamin from Florida State, but the group has been an easy target for critics who feel the team didnt do enough to restock and doesnt have a legitimate No. 1 receiver. "Its kind of been the story line of the off-season," Olsen said. "Any time the Panthers have come up thats kind of been the first comment made by everybody. I think guys are just kind of tired of it. I think we feel confident about our group."
