Newcastle beats West Brom 2-1 with late winner


NEWCASTLE, England (AP) -Papiss Cisse scored in stoppage time at St. James' Park as Newcastle beat West Bromwich Albion 2-1 in the Premier League on Sunday.

Newcastle substitute Sammy Ameobi struck a left-foot shot from the edge of the area that took a heavy deflection off the back of Cisse in the third minute of stoppage time and was diverted past goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Demba Ba scored his seventh goal in nine starts to give the Magpies a 35th-minute lead, but the dangerous Romelu Lukaku looked to have snatched the visitors a point when he headed home Zoltan Gera's cross 10 minutes into the second half.
