Congratulations Seattle Sounders on MLS Cup Victory!

TORONTO — In one of the more remarkable turnarounds in M.L.S. history, the Seattle Sounders won their first M.L.S. Cup on Saturday night, defeating Toronto F.C., 5-4, in a penalty shootout after 120 minutes of scoreless play in an intense and frigid setting.

Back in mid-August, in the regular season, the Sounders appeared to be going nowhere. But an ascent that included a coaching change continued into the playoffs, ending in a game the Sounders did not win so much as survive.

They were outplayed by Toronto for the most part and failed to register a single shot on goal. But they played resilient defense and got fine work from goalkeeper Stefan Frei, including a lunging, one-handed save in overtime on a header by Toronto’s Jozy Altidore.

They prevailed in the shootout, in which Toronto missed two of its six penalty kicks and Seattle missed only one.
