    YONGCHAUN, China – Mexico rallied from a one-goal deficit on Saturday to defeat New Zealand 2-1 in the last match for each in the Yongchaun Cup, an international women’s invitational tournament.

    Teresa Noyola’s 74th minute free kick at the Yongchuan Sports Center powered the Tricolor, which finished in third place, to its first victory after losses to Korea DPR (2-0) and host China (3-1).

    The Chinese won the competition with a perfect 3-0-0 record.

    Amber Hearn gave New Zealand a 1-0 lead in the 36th minute, beating goalkeeper Anjuli Laudron, who came on for injured starter Cecilia Santiago earlier in the half.

    Three minutes before the break, Renae Cuellar equalized for Mexico off an assist from Noyola.

    Cuellar nearly netted again in the 62nd minute only to be thwarted by goalkeeper Rebecca Rolls, setting the stage for heroics from Noyola.

    The result ended Mexico’s seven-game winless streak.
