Corinthians holds Santos to win Sao Paulo title

Corinthians won the Sao Paulo state championship for the 27th time and kept Santos from lifting the trophy for the fourth straight year after a 1-1 draw in the second leg on Sunday. Corinthians won its first title since 2009, 3-2 on aggregate. Led by young Brazil striker Neymar, Santos needed a victory at its Vila Belmiro Stadium to have a chance of clinching the title again. Cicero opened the scoring for Santos in the 26th minute, but Corinthians playmaker Danilo equalized two minutes later to leave his team in position to celebrate winning the title. ( AP)
