PARIS — Striker Kylian Mbappe came off the bench to score his 100th goal for Paris Saint-Germain as the French league leader secured a hard-fought 3-1 win at Montpellier on Saturday.Mbappe's century of PSG goals — in 137 games — was completed when the 21-year-old turned in a cross from Layvin Kurzawa from close range in the 90th minute.Up until then, it was uncertain for PSG after English striker Stephy Mavididi equalized for Montpellier in the 40th and the home side pushed strongly for a winner after the break.PSG striker Moise Kean broke away and netted with a fine finish in the 76th to put the visitors ahead. Mbappe then stroked the ball home from Kurzawa's quick pass to embellish a win which moves PSG four points ahead of second-place Marseille, and five ahead of third-place Lille.Marseille has played two games fewer than PSG, while Lille can remain two points behind PSG with a home win against Monaco on Sunday.PSG coach Thomas Tuchel rested Neymar and Marco Verratti ahead of its Champions League game against Istanbul Basaksehir on Tuesday. But Montpellier’s best striker Andy Delort was also missing, having tested positive for the coronavirus.It deprived Montpellier of a player who has six goals, assisted on three and has formed a strong partnership with Gaetan Laborde. It also spared a shaky PSG defence, which has conceded five goals in two games, from coping against one of the league’s most physical and awkward strikers.Tuchel's gamble to rest his best forwards worked.In Saturday's other game, Rennes lost 2-0 at home to Lens, which climbed to seventh place while Rennes dropped to eighth and has won just one game in its last 13 overall.Lens took the lead in the 27th minute through 18-year-old forward Arnaud Kalimuendo, who joined from PSG in the recent transfer window and netted his third goal of the season.He went close early in the second half when his shot was saved by the foot of goalkeeper Romain Salin. Striker Ignatius Ganago returned from injury and grabbed the second goal late on.In the pick of Sunday's matches, Lille's lunchtime kickoff frustrated coach Christophe Galtier considering his side played in the Europa League on Thursday night.Former champion Lyon looks to make it 10 games unbeaten when it visits Metz.___More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsJerome Pugmire, The Associated Press

Haisla First Nation outreach worker James Harry had vision as he walked the streets and alleys of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside looking for his own people struggling with addiction and helping them get off the streets.He envisioned outreach workers from other First Nations working with him. And now his vision is becoming a reality.Outreach workers from the Squamish, Heiltsuk and Nisga'a First Nations are now making connections with their citizens living in the inner city, united under the banner of All Nations Outreach. Other First Nations are also talking to him about joining, he says.In a neighbourhood where hope is a rare commodity, their efforts ensure that hope touches one person at a time."We can help, guide and support each other and really can get our people off the streets, possibly even home, and get them the help that they need," Harry said. "We need to let our people down here know that they matter. That we all deserve to heal."I'm like an anchorThe Nisga'a Ts'amiks Vancouver Society, which delivers programs and services to 1,400 Nisga'a citizens living in Metro Vancouver, hired Lynne Clayton as its new urban outreach worker last spring.Clayton said she was in a car accident in northern B.C. that nearly killed her. Convinced that she'd been granted a second chance at life, she committed to helping urban Nisga'a struggling with addictions in one of Vancouver's poorest neighbourhoods.She travels the streets and alleys of the Downtown Eastside daily, greeting other Nisga'a with "Aam wilaa wilina" (how are you) when she sees them. Their reasons for landing there are the same as other Indigenous people she sees — trauma, Clayton says. "There's a lot of historical trauma in their lives, and their parents' and grandparents' lives," she said. "They're in a storm and I'm like an anchor. I'll hang onto them until the worst part is over."You're not aloneDakota Auckland, 22, says he was like anyone else when he started using alcohol and drugs as a teen in Vancouver. But within a decade, fuelled by depression, the Haisla First Nation citizen says his addiction to crystal meth, heroin and crack overtook him. "Waking up I'd be wanting drugs straight away," Auckland says. "It was out of control for the last five years."He was sleeping in an alley and fishing whatever he could out of garbage cans on the Downtown Eastside. His body was covered in wounds and sores, and internal damage from dirty drugs was taking a toll. He'd overdosed several times and had been in and out of hospital.Harry was on an outreach walk in an alley when he found Auckland. He said what he always does when he meets another Haisla struggling. "My name is James Harry. I'm here on behalf of the Haisla Nation, and I want you to know you're not alone." Auckland says the words pierced his hard exterior. "I felt like crying because I felt so alone," he says.Harry stopped to see Auckland weekly and even daily for the next 18 months. Sometimes he just visited, but he always encouraged him to heal. "James always encouraged me to go to treatment but I wasn't interested then," Auckland says.Last spring, Auckland says he was convinced he was going to die if he used any longer, so he reached back to Harry ready to change. He first spent time in the hospital before moving to a men's mental health and recovery home in Prince Rupert, near the Haisla Nation's main community at Kitimat on B.C.'s North Coast.He's still at the recovery home and has been drug and alcohol free for nearly eight months. He eats and sleeps regularly, and participates in support programs."James always said 'There's another life waiting for you if you want it,' " Auckland says. "I can't believe I'm here because I shouldn't be."
