    Brazil tops Mexico, wins Riviera Maya Cup

    PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico - Brazil won the Riviera Maya Cup beach soccer tournament, defeating host Mexico 11-2 on the final day of group play Sunday before a capacity of more than 2,000 at the Mamitas Beach Club.

    The encounter was a rematch of the 2007 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup final, which was also won by the South American powerhouse.

    After Isaac Rodriguez gave Mexico a lead four minutes into the game, the Brazilians struck for five straight goals to take a 5-1 advantage by the end of the first period.

    From the second period onwards, Brazil got two goals apiece from Andre, Catarino and Maurucinho, who finished as the tournament's top scorer with nine goals.

    Rodriguez, who was named the competition's Most Valuable Player, netted his second goal in the third period to make the score 7-2.

    In the day's opener, Spain took a four-goal lead within the opening 12 minutes, securing second place with a 5-0 triumph over the Bahamas.

    Mexico and the Bahamas are preparing for the upcoming CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship, which will be hosted the Bahamas, May 8-12, at the Malcolm Park Beach Soccer and Futsal Facility in Nassau.
