LA Galaxy beat Revolution, win MLS Cup

CARSON, Calif. (AP) – Robbie Keane scored a brilliant breakaway goal in the 111th minute, and Landon Donovan retired as a champion Sunday with the LA Galaxy’s 2-1 victory over the New England Revolution in the MLS Cup.

Gyasi Zardes scored in the 52nd minute as the Galaxy won their record fifth league title in the final game for Donovan, the MLS career scoring leader and most accomplished soccer player in U.S. history.

Donovan, Keane and the Galaxy have won three of the last four league championships, celebrating all three on their home field.

After Chris Tierney scored the tying goal in the 79th minute for New England, both teams had golden opportunities before Keane capped his MVP season with the dynamic winner in the second period of extra time.
