Toronto, Canada – Sunday, November 21 – The Colorado Rapids defeated FC Dallas and lifted the Philip Anschutz trophy for the first time, the 2010 MLS Cup at BMO Field.

In front of a sellout crowd, temperature of 43 degrees and freezing winds blowing in from Lake Ontario, FC Dallas had to settle for 2-1 goal unsettling loss in overtime play against Colorado.

In overtime play, the winning goal came in the 107th minute, with Colorado benefitting from an own-goal by FC Dallas George John (#14).

The first goal came at 35 minutes after the Honduran, Dallas mid-fielder Marvin Chavez (#18), sent a pass over in front of Colorado goalkeeper Matt Pickens to a running left-footed kick by FC Dallas forward, David Ferreira (#10) that sent the ball in the Pickens net.

In the 57th minute, Colorado Rapids striker Conor Casey (#9) who scored while sitting on his rear end while tangling with FC Dallas goalkeeper Kevin Hartman, was named MLS Cup MVP.

This was the first time to MLS Cup for FC Dallas.  The Colorado Rapids made it to the finals once, losing in 1997.
