Colorado Rapids claim MLS Title

An own goal in overtime gave the Colorado Rapids a 2-1 victory over FC Dallas in Sunday's MLS Cup Final. It is the first championship in franchise history for Colorado.

Macoumba Kandji was credited with the goal in the 107th minute to give Colorado the lead. Kandji appeared to hit the ball off the back of a FC Dallas defender, redirecting it into the goal past goalkeper Kevin Hartman. Kandji appeared to be injured on the play and immediately left for the locker room, leaving the Rapids to finish the remainder of overtime with only 10 players.

FC Dallas got off a few shots in the final moments, one of which was saved in brilliant fashion by Colorado goalie Matt Pickens.
