L.A. defeats New England for fifth MLS Cup title

The L.A. Galaxy became the first Major League Soccer club to win five MLS Cup titles — and attacker Landon Donovan got his record sixth — by topping the New England Revolution 2-1 courtesy of an extra time Robbie Keane goal at the StubHub Center on Sunday.

L.A. was in cruise control following Gyasi Zardes’ 52-minute opener, but New England’s Chris Tierney pulled a goal back with 11 minutes to go to necessitate the extra period.

Keane, who was named league MVP earlier in the week, beat the Revolution offsides trap in the 111th minute to put his team in front for good.
