On Saturday night Toronto FC defeated the Seattle Sounders 2–0 to capture their first-ever MLS Cup, becoming perhaps one of the greatest teams Major League Soccer (MLS) has ever seen.
This game was loud, crazy, and a lot of fun! But that didn't stop it from being a nervous, edge-of-your-seat encounter.
Despite ferocious attacks by TFC, Seattle Sounders goaltender Stefan Frei just kept making save after save. As the second half began, Frei had already made at least six massive saves to keep it 0–0. Things weren't looking too good.
And then things took an amazing turn...
When Toronto FC forward Jozy Altidore scored, there was still a half hour of soccer left to be played. But something in the air suggested that nothing was going to stop this team and its passionate fans.
Midfielder Victor Vazquez scored a second goal late in the game and it was all over. TFC became the first Canadian team to win the MLS Cup!
Painting the town red
How much does this mean to the city of Toronto? Today, we'll have a chance to find out! A championship parade through downtown is scheduled for today. We bet it will be quite a party.
So congratulations to Toronto FC!
