On the other hand, Seattle knew how to withstand Canadian pressure and after 57 minutes, he found the first goal of the match through a failure of the rival defense. Morrow, Rodriguez and Ruidiaz ended up pro finalizing the work.
The development of the meeting
The game started intensely, Seattle wanted to make the ball during the first minutes, but as time went by Toronto was getting stronger and stronger and eventually took over possession. The local team found no reaction, so they wanted to appeal to their power to the backlash and find Ruidiaz, Lodeiro or Morris in the last area of the field to resolve the match.
At minute eight, Morris tried to escape on the left wing, defeated the defense by speed and entered only the area, but when trying to overcome Westberg, the end could not make good contact with the ball and ended up crashing it into the archer's body.
Osorio gave his first warning at 11 ', when he received a pass inside the area and tried to define one, unfortunately for the Canadian team the striker failed to accommodate himself to take a good shot and sent the ball to Frei's position. For its part, Ruidiaz had the opportunity to define head, but the Peruvian was well covered with double mark.
The Vanney-led cadre owned the ball, stopped the Seattle attacks, and Bradley dressed as a hero with a couple of plays in the area that might have been expensive for visitors. At 35 ', Osorio could have sent to keep the ball, but Frei made a huge save with which he clarified that he did not intend to let anything happen to his goal.
Ruidiaz had a great opportunity in the last sighs of the first half, he found a great ball in the area, He was alone in front of the arch, but he ended up crashing the goalkeeper round.
For the second half the game followed the same tune, the Canadians owned the ball, but an error in the defense defined the course of the game, it was 57 minutes into the game when Seattle created a good play in the rival area, Kelvin Leerdam shot from the runner on the right and in an attempt by Morrow to get the ball, he ended up sending it to the bottom of the net.
Toronto wanted to react, but Victor Rodriguez ended his hopes at 75 'by taking a shot from another planet which was embedded in the bottom of the networks. When the game seemed already sentenced, Ruidiaz was responsible for defining the game with the third goal of the match.
Jozi Altidore tried to react with his team by embedding 3-1, but it was all too late, there was no time for more. Seattle is the new MLS champion and does it for the first time at home before its people.
