The Colorado Rapids won the Major League Soccer Cup in a physical match, but one that was fun to watch, with a 2-1 OT win over FC Dallas. FC Dallas started the scoring when David Ferriera scored on a beautiful cross from Chavez when the Rapids failed to mark Ferriera.
But FC Dallas would score no more. Conner Casey got the Rapids even with a goal from his rear when he found the ball in a pile of bodies and put it in.
The rest of regular time no one scored despite efforts from both teams. But in the beginning of the 2nd OT, Kandji kicked a ball off FC Dallas defender John and it found the goal for an own goal.
If you watch the replay, Kandji got a boot to the knee and was unable to finish the game. The Rapids finished with 10 men and withstood a rampant attack by FC Dallas including Pickens making a wonderful diving save.
The Rapids bring home its first MLS Championship and hopefully many more to come.
