U.S. women rout Marta-less Brazil

In Chiba, Japan, Carli Lloyd, Shannon Boxx and Amy Rodriguez scored to power the United States to a 3-0 victory over Brazil in the three-team Kirin Cup.

Lloyd picked up a loose ball from Christie Rampone’s free kick in the 18th minute and scored from close range. Boxx doubled the lead five minutes later with a header off Lauren Cheney’s free kick. Rodriguez completed the scoring in the 83rd, slotting home a loose ball from a free kick by Cheney.

Tuesday’s game started four hours earlier than scheduled because heavy rain and strong winds were forecast to hit Chiba.

Brazil was without five-time FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year Marta, who was left off the squad to prepare for matches with her Swedish club Tyreso.

Camacho faces charge of abuse

Former champion boxer Hector “Macho” Camacho is facing a felony count of child abuse and turned himself in to Florida authorities this week on a warrant filed late last year.

The 49-year-old Camacho posted a $5,000 bond at the Orange County Jail in Orlando on Monday and was released. According to the arrest affidavit, Camacho surrendered on a warrant that records show was filed by the state attorney’s office in November.

Camacho’s attorney Linda George released a statement on Tuesday which said a family dispute took place at the home of Camacho’s children and that a neighbor called police because it “entailed yelling outside of the home.”

George said police arrived, did not arrest Camacho and no injuries or medical attention was required by anyone involved.
