FOXBOROUGH, Massachusetts: Miguel Sabah scored twice to help Mexico's Monarcas Morelia win the SuperLiga championship with a 2-1 victory over the New England Revolution on Wednesday night.

Sabah converted a penalty in the 65th minute and made it 2-0 in the 75th with a spectacular volley. Kevin Alston scored the Revolution in the 79th.

"We worked hard in the first half and had a lot of shots on goal," Monarcas coach Tomas Boy said. "In the second half, we became more precise."

Sabah took the penalty kick after Luis Gabriel Rey was pulled down inside the box.

Revolution coach Steve Nicol responded by making some attacking substitutions, with Zach Schilawski among them. But Sabah struck again.

"It was a beautiful goal," Boy said. "Sabah is an unpredictable goalscorer. He can score any kind of goal." New England finally broke through when Alston latched on to Schilawski's pass to the corner of the box.

"It was bittersweet," Alston said. "It feels good to score, but we lost, so it really doesn't mean much."  AP
