KRIS LINDSAY - Monday, December 8, 2014
The Los Angeles Galaxy won their fifth MLS title on Sunday, defeating the New England Revolution 2-1 after extra time.

Galaxy forward Robbie Keane buried his best chance of the night in the 111th minute, and the Galaxy held off the Revolution attack to secure Landon Donovan a title on his final professional soccer game.

The teams went into halftime scoreless, with few chances in the opening period.

The second half began a fury of opportunities for both sides, with Galaxy forward Gyasi Zardes opened up the scoring in the 52nd minute. Midfielder Stefan Ishizaki whipped in a cross from the right side and found Zardes, who took a touch and poked the ball to the far post past Revolution keeper Bobby Shuttleworth to put the Galaxy ahead.

Midfielder Chris Tierney had other ideas for the Revolution, however, countering with a strike late in the 79th minute. The midfielder finished with a perfect touch straight through the legs of Galaxy keeper Jaime Penedo.

The game continued into extra time. Despite a scoreless first 15 minutes, Keane found himself in on goal after a perfect over the top ball, and he made no mistake.

The Galaxy celebrated as the first team to win five MLS Cups. US international Landon Donovan retired from soccer after the match, going out as the only player to win 6 MLS championships (two with San Jose, four with Los Angeles).
