Jarvis, Vaz Te lead West Ham past QPR


LONDON — Matt Jarvis and Ricardo Vaz Te scored in the first half Monday as West Ham hung on for a 2-1 win at 10-man Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League to leave their London rivals languishing in last place.

Jarvis gave his team the lead in the third minute, heading in from a tight angle after Kevin Nolan's shot looped over to the far post. Vaz Te then doubled the lead from almost exactly the same spot, volleying in a cross past Julio Cesar.

Adel Taarabt pulled one back for QPR with a spectacular long-range strike in the 57th, but the hosts' chances of a comeback were stifled when Samba Diakite was sent off for a second booking in the 75th.

Andy Carroll made his return from a hamstring injury when he came on as a second-half substitute and had time to set up his teammates for a couple of good chances and force a save from Julio Cesar with a hard shot from the edge of the area in injury time.
