Colorado Rapids win MLS
Monday 22 November 2010
The Colorado Rapids were crowned champions of Major League Soccer for the first time after a 2-1 extra-time win over FC Dallas on Sunday.
Dallas took the lead in the 35th minute when Colombian David Ferreira, voted the U.S. professional soccer league's most valuable player, coolly converted a superb cross from Marvin Chavez.
In a largely scrappy game, Colorado drew level through a scrambled effort in the 57th minute when striker Conor Casey scooped the ball home while lying on the floor.
Colorado went in front in extra-time when a shot from substitute Macoumba Kandji was deflected in by Dallas defender George John.
Dallas produced some late pressure with John having a solid effort saved by keeper Matt Pickens and Jeff Cunningham going close.
