ULSAN, South Korea (AP) -Ulsan Horangi of South Korea won the Asian Champions League on Saturday with a 3-0 victory over Saudi Arabia's Al Ahli in the final at Ulsan World Cup Stadium.

Kwak Tae-hwi headed a floated free kick into net in the 13th minute to put Ulsan ahead and set the team on course for a first continental title and the tenth for a South Korean side.

Brazilian striker Rafinha extended that lead midway through the second half and Kim Sung-yong sealed the win in the 76th in front of 42,000 fans with a fierce half-volley.
