Small-time Danubio lift Uruguayan league title

MONTEVIDEO, May 18 (Reuters) - Modest Danubio won the Uruguayan championship by beating Penarol on penalties following a 1-1 draw.

The result, in a playoff on Thursday night, meant that Danubio won the second stage of the tournament and took the title because they also won the first stage.

Penarol and Danubio had finished the second stage level on points.

After a goalless first half on a chilly night at the Centenario stadium, Penarol went ahead in the 64th minute through Egidio Rios.

Danubio equalised with 10 minutes left when a long throw-in found Jadson Viera and he chested the ball down for Hamilton Ricard to fire home.

Former Middlesbrough and Colombia striker Ricard turned villain seven minutes later when he was sent off for a second bookable offence.

There was no further scoring in extra time and Danubio won the penalty shootout 4-3 when, after both teams had already missed one attempt each, Sergio Perez blasted Penarol's last kick against the post.

Danubio have won the title three times since Uruguayan football turned professional in 1932. Penarol, who last won the championship in 2003, have 36 titles followed by Nacional on 30.
