    Mexico takes 3rd at Beach Championship

    NASSAU, Bahamas - It took 15 goals to decide a winner, but Mexico outlasted Costa Rica 8-7 on Sunday to capture third place at the CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship.

    The Mexicans, who entered this year's competition as the defending champion, bounced back from a disappointing penalty-kick setback to El Salvador on Saturday.

    After Costa Rica grabbed the lead just two minutes into the game, Mexico scored four answered goals, including two from Angel Rodriguez.

    The Central Americans battled back to take a 6-5 lead one minute into the third period thanks to Greivin Pacheco's second goal of the game.

    Jorge Rodríguez leveled for Mexico three minutes later.

    The teams exchanged goals again, before Ricardo Villalobos struck for the game-winner with only a minute left on the clock.

     

    Match for Fifth Place 
    Bahamas 6 (0), Guatemala 6 (1)
    Guatemala captured fifth place, topping Bahamas 1-0 on penalty kicks, following an electrifying 6-6 draw.

    Wilson Gonzalez scored three goals in a winning effort, while Ehren Hanna struck twice for the tournament host.

    Eduardo Samayoa scored the penalty-kick winner after Nesly Jean missed his attempt wide.
