PARIS — Striker Wissam Ben Yedder came off the bench to score twice as Monaco beat last-place Dijon 3-0 to stay third in the French league on Sunday. Fourth-place Lyon beat Angers 3-0 to remain one point behind Monaco in the chase for third and a slot in the Champions League qualifying rounds, although both teams are also fighting Paris Saint-Germain and Lille for the title itself. Lille is three points ahead of second-place PSG, four ahead of Monaco and five clear of Lyon, with six games remaining in the most open championship race for many years. Netherlands forward Memphis Depay scored twice for Lyon, which travels to Monaco early next month. While coach Niko Kovac's consistent Monaco has lost once in the past 20 games overall, Dijon endured a 13th straight defeat and looks doomed to relegation. Following a dour first half, Kovac brought on Ben Yedder and he was soon tripped for a penalty in the 48th minute. Ben Yedder's spot kick was saved but forward Stevan Jovetic followed up to finish from close range. Ben Yedder netted in the 62nd when Dijon failed to clear the ball properly and Aleksandr Golovin sent him through on goal. He then added a late penalty to make it 3-0 and reach 17 league goals. Only Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe has more with 21. DEPAY'S DOUBLE Depay's brace moved him onto 16 league goals and 18 in 34 games overall in what may prove to be his final games with Lyon, after he almost joined Barcelona during the off-season. His first goal came in the 20th, when he tucked home the rebound after Brazil midfielder Lucas Paqueta's shot hit the post. Depay's second was superb as he latched onto Paqueta's defence-splitting pass, then casually chipped the goalkeeper from the edge of the area with exceptional technique in the 82nd. After a shaky start, it proved a dominant performance from Lyon after some inconsistent form recently. Paqueta set up forward Karl Toko Ekambi in the 37th, but the goal was ruled out because Paqueta handled the ball before crossing it. Toko Ekambi turned provider three minutes later when he dribbled down the left and helped Paqueta to score at the back post in the 40th. Striker Islam Slimani thought he'd made it 3-0 in the 77th, but his goal was ruled out because Toko Ekambi was narrowly offside when he passed to him. OTHER MATCHES Fifth-place Lens had five players out with coronavirus for the home game against Lorient, but still won 4-1. Time is running out for Nantes, which won the last of its eight league titles 20 years ago but is languishing in 19th after losing 1-0 at Rennes. Winger Martin Terrier netted early in the second half for seventh-place Rennes with a superb curling shot into the top right corner from the left of the penalty area. Rennes is one point behind sixth-place Marseille but still four points behind Lens in the chase for fifth and a Europa League spot. Saint-Etienne is closer to midtable after beating Bordeaux 4-1. Playing against his former club, Saint-Etienne winger Wahbi Khazri scored a hat trick after South Korea striker Hwang Ui-jo gave Bordeaux an early lead from the penalty spot. Saint-Etienne travels to PSG next weekend. Also Sunday, it was: Brest 1, Nimes 1; and Nice 0, Reims 0. PSG won 4-1 at Strasbourg on Saturday. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Jerome Pugmire, The Associated Press

A group of Torontonians rallied together on Saturday to help those affected by a volcano that erupted on Friday on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent. After decades of inactivity, La Soufrière volcano erupted, forcing thousands of people from surrounding villages to evacuate. GlobalMedic, a Canadian charity and disaster response agency, organized a local relief effort to help displaced families in St. Vincent. Fitzgerald Huggins, the consul general of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in Toronto, thanked the group for their "tremendous donations." "This donation is going to go a long way in assisting in the relief efforts to make sure our people have that comfort that they're accustomed to." Huggins says he has survived three eruptions himself, and knows that the 16,000 people who have been displaced from their homes will need food and proper housing. "We're in this for the long haul; it's not going to end overnight." Watch: Consul general of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in Toronto appeals for aid for displaced families The volcano sat dormant since 1979, until December, when it began showing signs of activity. Those signs picked up this week, which prompted an evacuation of the surrounding area on Thursday. Early on Friday, the volcano erupted, plunging the neighbouring area into near total darkness from ash and smoke. Rahul Singh, the executive director of GlobalMedic, says it will be difficult to get aid to people in need because most planes can't fly into a volcanic area. The group is sending down sea containers full of aid instead, equipped with emergency kits to help displaced families. The kits include dried food, such as rice, lentils, and pasta. "This is just the start of this crisis and we're hoping to reach as many people as we can," says Singh.

WHISTLER, B.C. — Adults living and working in Whistler, B.C. will be able to receive their COVID-19 vaccination earlier than other parts of the province, as the region grapples with a surge of cases. Eligible residents will be required to provide proof of their permanent residency or employment in Whistler. A B.C. driver’s licence, a valid credit card statement with their Whistler address, or a recent paystub to confirm their employment in the area will be required. Those eligible for the vaccine will be able to start receiving doses starting Monday. The health authority did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the decision to start widespread vaccination in the community. The move comes as the province deals with a rush of COVID-19 and variant cases in the community. From the start of the new year to April 5, there have been 1,505 COVID-19 cases in Whistler, with the majority occurring in people aged 20 to 39. The health authority adds that the Howe Sound health area has the highest rate of COVID-19 of any local health area in the province, with the majority of these cases residing in the Whistler community. Whistler Mayor Jack Crompton said the move will protect more than the residents of his town. "This protects Whistlerites but I believe it will protect the province as well," Crompton said in an interview. "The community vaccination means that when people come from Vancouver in to this community and go home, they'll be more protected than they would've been otherwise." The town is largely made-up of hospitality workers and small business owners, which have seen their livelihoods devastated by the pandemic, he added. "Whistler does not have an economy in the middle of COVID-19. That's never been clearer than when the mountain closed and the vast majority of our community was out of work," said Crompton. The program also comes as the town deals with a large number of COVID-19 variant cases. B.C. has recorded 974 cases of the variant that originated in Brazil, the highest in Canada. Of those cases, there are at least 197 of the variant cases in the community. The ski resort was shut down at the end of March with provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry blaming the rising number of COVID-19 cases for the decision.

DENVER — Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown fueled an amazing 31-3 run that helped the Boston Celtics put the skids on the NBA’s hottest team with a 105-87 win over the Denver Nuggets on Sunday. The Nuggets looked well on their way to their ninth straight win when they took a 79-65 lead in the third quarter on a 3-pointer by Facundo Campazzo. Boston outscored the Nuggets 40-8 the rest of the way. The Celtics had been held to 16 first-quarter points and trailed by as many as 14 early on. Brown started the epic run with a nifty bucket and Tatum provided the biggest highlights, including eight straight points on a trio of free throws, a jumper and a 3-pointer. Tatum finished with 28 points two days after a career-best 53-point performance against Minnesota, and Brown had 20. Tatum (illness) and Brown (sore left knee) starred despite being listed as questionable before tip-off. Michael Porter Jr. led Denver with 20 points despite missing 11 of 12 from beyond the arc. Nikola Jokic had 17 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. The Nuggets lost for the first time since acquiring Aaron Gordon at the trade deadline, a move that made them a legitimate title contender. This was just their fourth loss in 21 games since Feb. 27 and their first since Feb. 24 at Toronto. The Celtics chipped away after their poor start and trailed 51-45 at halftime, holding Jokic to three first-half points on 1-of-5 shooting. TIP-INS Celtics: Were 1-for-9 on 3-point tries in the first quarter, when they shot 6 for 25 from the floor. ... Evan Fournier, who's in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols, didn't make the trip. Nuggets: Jamal Murray missed his fourth consecutive game with a sore right knee. ... During a second-quarter sequence, JaMychal Green rebounded his own errant 3-pointer, missed the finger-roll, grabbed the board again and watched Robert Williams III block his layup. UP NEXT Celtics: Visit the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night before wrapping up their three-game trip against the Lakers on Thursday night.

CALGARY — The men's world curling championship playoffs resumed Sunday in Calgary after a suspension of games due to COVID-19. Alberta Health approved the resumption of games, the World Curling Federation said. Four participants, including three from non-playoff teams, tested positive for the virus, but did not show symptoms of the illness. An unidentified athlete from a playoff team who tested positive and then negative in a subsequent test was initially barred from competing Sunday, but the WCF reversed course and allowed him on the ice. "After extensive consultation with Alberta Health the athlete who tested positive, then negative has been granted permission to play in the playoffs today," the WCF said in a statement. "The athlete in question has been fully vaccinated. "New medical guidelines have been implemented for the closing day. Players will remain masked when competing and PCR throat-swab tests will take place before and after each game." The player who tested positive received two doses of vaccination in his home country before the world championship, the WCF said. The world governing body of curling also said a case was made to reinstate the athlete with the argument teammates and opponents would be at minimal risk from his participation Sunday. Switzerland's Peter de Cruz edged John Shuster of the United States 7-6 in a morning playoff game in which all players on the ice wore masks for the first time in Calgary's bubble. Masks were previously mandatory off the ice. "My coach told me we were going to play with a mask," de Cruz said. "I said 'let's make sure it's one where I can actually breathe a little bit in it.' "Our Swiss masks with the Swiss cheese, a bit tough to sweep with those." The Swiss skip put his faith in the governing bodies of the event that it was safe to proceed Sunday. "In my opinion, and this doesn't really matter, I completely trust the WCF and Curling Canada," de Cruz said. "If they made the call, then it's definitely safe. "In this situation, I've had concerns for the last 14 months. If someone tells me we can play then I'm a hundred per cent behind it. If you want to win some games, that's the only way to do it." The Swiss faced Sweden and Russia took on Scotland in the afternoon semifinals. Gold and bronze-medal games were scheduled for the same draw in the evening. Domestic host broadcaster TSN refused to carry Sunday morning's playoff game between the U.S. and Switzerland "due to COVID-19 issues," but committed to include a semifinal and the final in its programming. "Following health and safety concerns, the decision was made not to broadcast this morning's qualifying round game between the USA and Switzerland at the world men's curling championship," TSN told The Canadian Press in a statement. "The decision was supported by our longstanding partners, Curling Canada and the World Curling Federation, with whom we have collaborated to execute successful tournaments through 57 days in the bubble in Calgary. "We remain fully supportive of the event, and TSN will deliver live coverage of today’s semifinal and final games, from the concourse level." Saturday's playoff game and a pair of semifinals were postponed while more testing was conducted. Athletes, coaches and event officials considered close contacts with the infected athletes tested negative, according to the WCF. The men's world championship is the fourth Curling Canada event held in a controlled environment without spectators following the national men's, women's and mixed doubles championship. No positive tests were reported in Canada's domestic events at WinSport's Markin MacPhail Centre. World championship curlers underwent "exit'' tests last week in preparation to leave Calgary's curling bubble. Shortly after Canada's Brendan Bottcher was eliminated from world championship contention Friday night, the WCF suspended competition because of three positive tests involving non-playoff teams. The fourth positive test involving the playoff-team athlete wasn't received until Saturday morning, the WCF said. That player subsequently tested negative for the virus in the retesting round.
