  • Print

SUNDERLAND, England - Sunderland's memorable season ended on a disappointing note as the Premier League survivors lost 3-1 at home against Swansea on Sunday.

Sunderland, which only secured its place in the top flight for next season earlier this week, fell behind after seven minutes when Nathan Dyer broke free to send the ball past keeper Vito Mannone.

Swansea doubled its lead in the 14th courtesy of Marvin Emnes's shot into the roof of the net from the edge of the penalty area.

Fabio Borini pulled one back after halftime but Wilfried Bony restored his team's lead almost immediately with his 25th goal of the season in all competitions.
