FCD slam Galaxy for West crown, book ticket to MLS Cup

CARSON, Calif. – David Ferreira had won praise from teammates and coaches – his own as well as opponents’ – throughout the season, and on Sunday showed that he is indeed worth the hype.

Ferreira scored a goal and had an assist as FC Dallas thoroughly defeated the Los Angeles Galaxy 3-0 in the Western Conference Championship at The Home Depot Center.

The victory sends FCD to MLS Cup for the first time in their history, while the Galaxy failed to reach their seventh MLS Cup and will no longer be able to atone for last season’s final loss to Real Salt Lake.

Kevin Hartman made several strong early saves to keep the Galaxy from breaking through. Just seven minutes in, Mike Magee tested Hartman with a long-distance blast that the FCD 'keeper stretched to parry away.

Unlikely goal good enough for Rapids

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — Everyone all week had been talking about the Colorado Rapids' Conor Casey and Omar Cummings combination, but tonight’s Eastern Conference Championship was decided by a Rapids defender with a speculative cross.

Kosuke Kimura’s cross in the 42nd minute was the only goal of the game. Some may say it was a lucky goal, but the Japanese player works on delivering dangerous balls into dangerous areas every day at training and all that hard work paid off in Colorado's 1-0 defeat of San Jose.

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS - MY FRIEND!

Rapids ride own goal, survive wild finish to win MLS Cup

TORONTO – Colorado Rapids, welcome to Major League Soccer royalty.

After 15 seasons spent watching other league original franchises carve their identities with success and silverware, Denver’s team is finally a league champion.

The Rapids used a scrappy goal from Conor Casey and a game-winning own goal deep into stoppage time to claw their way to a chilly, chippy and ultimately cathartic 2-1 win over FC Dallas in the MLS Cup on Sunday night at BMO Field.

The title is the first in franchise history for Colorado, who’ve overhauled nearly everything except their team name since their only other MLS Cup appearance in 1997. But whether it was the team logo (they’ve had three), the coach (they’re on their fifth), or their team colors (from green and blue then to burgundy and sky blue now), nothing seemed to finally do the trick until Sunday night.

Slightly more than two months ago, the Colorado Rapids lost 3-1 to New York in what appeared to be a relatively comfortable win for the Red Bulls and their famous Designated Players.

Yet after the game, it was the Rapids and their coach, Gary Smith, who were talking tough, insisting the game was closer than the score suggested, and saying how much they’d love another crack at a New York team that was then in ascendancy.

At the time, it seemed like hollow posturing. When the teams announced a trade the following day, with Colorado sending midfielder Mehdi Ballouchy to New York in exchange for Macoumba Kandji, most observers agreed that Ballouchy’s season, not Kandji’s, would trend upward after the move.

bad match until the final 5 minutes, the atmopshere wasn't that great either. Why did they play this game at night? Don't even play the game on Sunday, play it on Saturday

I agree. They switched to Sunday nights when they moved the game from ABC to ESPN. I bet the ratings were terrible since Colorado and Dallas are the least supported teams. Galaxy vs Red Bulls was the dream final for MLS but they both choked.

I went ot the match, someone really cocked it up by scheduling it at 830pm, actual start time 845pm on a Sunday night. People actually work in Toronto. It made for a poor atmosphere, November cold but bearable, but the game was worse than the cold until the last 5 minutes. I am glad it didn't go to penalties.

Atmosphere: It's kinda hard for TFC fans to cheer for any other team. We obviously wanted Colorado due to the Marvell Wynne factor, but we also hate Cunningham.

There were a few Colorado and Dallas fans though, quite a few actually. Also saw some Galaxy and Red Bull fans. They came a long way!
