MLS Cup heads to OT

After 90 minutes of lack-luster play, we get to witness some overtime. For New England, they have just not been able to put anything together. There have been short periods were things have looked good for them, but over all, they are not playing their game. For Los Angeles, they have just been unlucky. Donovan had a great chance about 3 feet from goal, but the backline of the Revs managed to keep Landon off the board. If New England can actually open things ups, they will win this. For LA, all they need to do is finish one of their many chances.

By the way, LA has out shot NE 18 - 7 but only 4 of those shots for LA have been on goal. There are also 10 players on the pitch with yellow cards. How long till a double yellow shows someone the showers?

Update: Fifteen minutes till glory and LA find themselves up 1-0 off a wonderful strike by Guillermo Ramirez. He banged a redirected corner kick past NE's Matt Reis. Now New England have got to get their offense feet a moving. I seem to recall that they scored 2 goals in 15 minutes against the MetroStars, so it can be done. Either way, I think this is about to be 15 great minutes of play to finish up the MLS season.
