RFK Stadium, Washington, D.C.

D.C. United 2, Colorado Rapids 1

D.C. United became back-to-back league champion, this time in front of its home fans. The second-largest soccer crowd in stadium history, 57,431, witnessed the match despite rain and a temperature of 46 degrees.

Forward Jaime Moreno was named the game's Most Valuable Player and scored in the 37th minute. D.C. got a second goal from Tony Sanneh, and that was enough to hold off the Rapids.

Colorado's lineup featured current Sounders FC technical director Chris Henderson and goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann, a Seattle native. Henderson took four shots. The Rapids stepped up the pressure on offense in the game's final 10 minutes but couldn't draw even.
