How did we get here?
Roman Torres scored in the sixth round of penalty kicks to give the Seattle Sounders their first MLS Cup title, 5-4 over Toronto FC after 120 scoreless minutes Saturday night.
It was the first MLS Cup final to fail to produce a goal in regulation, setting the stage for a dramatic tiebreaker.
While Toronto's Michael Bradley and Alvaro Fernandez for Seattle had both seen their shots saved, the game went to sudden-death spot kicks. Toronto's Justin Morrow could only clatter his shot off the crossbar, setting the stage for Torres to win it with a high shot down the middle of the goal.
A triumphant return
The MLS Cup champion Seattle Sounders arrived home to a big crowd of fans in "rave green" following their dramatic victory over Toronto FC on penalty kicks.
Hundreds of fans chanted and sang while they awaited the team to emerge from King County Airport after their plane landed Sunday afternoon. Defender Roman Torres, who scored the winning penalty kick, high-fived fans, who chanted "MVP! MVP!" as goalkeeper Stefan Frei hoisted the trophy high. Frei's heroic saves in regulation and extra time — including on a looping header by Toronto's Josy Altidore — kept the Sounders in the game and earned him most-valuable-player honors.
Coach Brian Schmetzer thanked the crowd and told the fans they deserve the title. The crowd responded with chants of "Thank you, Sounders!"
