Columbus Wins MLS Cup

Jonathan Grant | December 13th, 2020

It’s been a very weird and wild MLS season, and it all finally came to a close on Saturday afternoon when the Columbus Crew lifted MLS Cup via a 3-0 win over the Seattle Sounders in Columbus’ Mapfre Stadium. And they did it without two key stars being out due to Covid-19 in the form of Darlington Nagbe and Pedro Santos. That made the win even sweeter for them. The MVP of the game was Lucas Zelarayan.

He scored twice, putting the opening goal in after 25 minutes and rounding off the game in the 82nd minute to give them all the insurance they could ever need. Derrick Etienne scored in the 31st minute to make it two goals down for the visiting Sounders. And from there it was always going to be unlikely for them to make a comeback. Zelarayan also had the assist on Etienne’s goal, making him directly responsible for three goals. Pretty easy choice for MVP, huh? Seattle were looking to make it back-to-back MLS Cup wins, but instead it was Columbus that captured its second Cup in club history. The last one had come back in 2008, and it comes as the second for head coach Caleb Porter (though with two different teams).
