Sounders MLS Cup

The Sounders are MLS Cup champions for the second time in franchise history, defeating Toronto FC, 3-1, in front of a raucous 69,274 fans at CenturyLink Field. The Sounders said a MLS Cup win at home could establish the team as one of the league’s greatest. Seattle did its part, beginning with its first goal in championship-game history when defender Kelvin Leerdam scored in the 57th minute off a service from Raul Ruidiaz. Ruidiaz, who led the team during the regular season in scoring, capped the game with a goal in the 90th minute. It was Ruidiaz’s first title game.
