Central Coast and Melbourne Victory have emerged as the biggest movers on the A-League table after scoring key victories in round seven.The Mariners ran amok in a 2-0 win over league dark horses Perth to shake up the competition table, rising from ninth spot all the way into the top six.Paul Okons men finally ended a streak of 36 games without a clean sheet and have now lost just once in their past five fixtures.Striker Roy ODonovan, who scored his fifth goal of the season in the win, was pleased to see the results finally match their wholesome efforts this season.It is good to see because a new manager comes in, hes got a new way of thinking, a new way of expressing football, ODonovan told AAP.People are buying into it now. Its starting to get better to watch too. At the start we were a bit cagey, but every game I think weve gone up maybe five per cent.ODonovan predicted the best of the Mariners was yet to come, urging his team not to be content with their first win at home since New Years Eve.They again play at home against Western Sydney on Saturday.Youll see the best of us after Christmas, but that result will give us plenty of confidence going into another home game against Western Sydney, he said.We cant just think its a good result and then win again in three months now. Weve just got to keep getting clean sheets and improving. If we do that, well be alright this year.The upset kicked off an intriguing round that included ladder leaders Sydney FC dropping points in a scoreless draw with bottom-placed Adelaide Reds.It was the second week in a row the Sky Blues were held to a draw after winning their opening six games of the season.The Wanderers winless streak hit six games after being held to a 1-1 draw with Brisbane, while Victory jumped to third after a decisive win over Newcastle.Winger Marco Rojas was arguably the best player at the weekend, scoring once and seeing a deflected free kick go in for Victorys 2-0 success.Melbourne City talisman Bruno Fornaroli saw his side leapfrog Victory into second place by taking the points from Sundays match against Wellington Phoenix.Another deflected opener - this time from Nick Fitzgerald via Marco Rossi - opened the scoring before Roy Krishna scored his fifth of the season.Fornaroli scored a 71st minute penalty - his seventh goal of the season - to ensure Wednesdays FFA Cup final will be between the top two sides in the league for the first time. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Tj-Lang-Draft-Jersey/ . -- The Missouri Tigers might not have a roster full of superstars. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Graham-Glasgow-Draft-Jersey/ .

GENEVA -- Much of the intense Olympic action before the Rio de Janeiro Games open in less than two weeks is set to play out in the law courts.For many Russian athletes caught up in a doping scandal, a legal fight -- and a race against time to get the verdict they want -- is their biggest barrier to competing.The Court of Arbitration for Sport already handed one defeat to Russia on Thursday. It rejected an appeal by 67 Russian track and field athletes who the International Association of Athletics Federation had declared ineligible for Rio after previously banning their national federation from international competitions.On Sunday, the International Olympic Committees executive board will consider banning all Russian teams from the Summer Games because of a state-sponsored doping conspiracy.If the IOC imposes the toughest punishment, the Russian OIympic committee could then also challenge it at CAS, which opens a special Olympic court in Rio next week.Cases can go above world sports appeal court. Just a short walk from CASs headquarters in Lausanne is Switzerlands supreme court -- the Swiss Federal Tribunal.Russian sports minister Vitaly Mutko already suggested that the 67 athletes could defend their honor and dignity by going to a higher civil court.Many try but few succeed in persuading Swiss federal judges to overturn CAS verdicts.---WHO CAN APPEAL A CAS VERDICT?Anyone who loses before a typical three-member panel of CAS judges can file a further appeal at its home countrys highest civil court, the Swiss Federal Tribunal.A federal case is slow and tough to win, with few grounds of appeal.Federal judges intervene if legal process was abused but will not re-examine the merits of a case.A faster option for Russian appeals would be for a provisional measure -- an interim ruling to freeze a verdict pending the full case.---WHO HAS BEATEN CAS AT FEDERAL COURT?Very few cases, at a rate of about one per year of around 400 arbitration and appeal processes annually.It is even possible to overturn a CAS verdict in the federal court and still lose the re-triaal.dddddddddddd That happened to tennis player Guillermo Canas of Argentina in 2007.Canas was initially banned for two years by the ATP Tours anti-doping tribunal, and saw that reduced to 15 months at CAS.When Canas went to federal court, Swiss judges ruled his right to be heard had been breached and sent back the case. A second CAS hearing also applied a 15-month ban.---WHATS THE BEST WAY TO BEAT CAS?Federal judges have set aside several verdicts on the grounds that CAS did not have jurisdiction to judge the original case. Those cases include a win and a loss for the International Ice Hockey Federation.The IIHF lost to a German international player whose ban for refusing a doping test was overturned. It then won a million-dollar compensation case against Swiss hockey champion Bern.CAS had awarded the club damages for lost earnings when the 2009-10 Champions Hockey League folded due to the main sponsor, Russian energy giant Gazprom, pulling out.---IS THERE AN EXCEPTION TO GIVE RUSSIA HOPE?The case of Brazilian soccer player Matuzalem stands out for federal judges intervening to say: Enough is enough.He won a supreme court ruling in 2012 over a manifest and serious attack on his rights by FIFA and CAS.Matuzalem broke his contract to force a transfer and was ordered to compensate his former club, Shakhtar Donetsk of Ukraine, around $15 million.When the player struggled to pay, and broke FIFAs disciplinary rules, he filed a further round of appeals to CAS and the federal court.Federal judges objected to Shakhtar having the power to request a ban, which itself could curb Matuzalems ability to earn and repay the debt.In exceptional cases, a sentence can be annulled for violation of the essential principles of the judicial system, named `the public order, the federal court said.Could Russian authorities or athletes eventually persuade Swiss judges that an Olympic ban is a similar violation?Unlikely, but perhaps not impossible.
