Home Depot Center, Carson, Calif.
D.C. United 3, Kansas City Wizards 2
D.C. United, back in the final for the first time since 1999, delivered a fourth MLS championship in the nine seasons of the league's existence with its win over the Wizards on a sunny 81-degree day at the Home Depot Center, which wasn't full to capacity.
Alecko Eskandarian scored goals in the 19th and 23rd minutes to lead D.C. and earn match Most Valuable Player honors. D.C.'s third goal — all three came in a span of seven minutes — was an own goal by Kansas City's Alex Zotinca in the 26th minute.
United needed its 3-1 advantage after Dema Kovalenko was issued a red card for denying a goal-scoring chance with his hand in the 57th minute.
Current Sounders FC assistant coach Ezra Hendrickson was on the D.C. roster, and current Sounder Taylor Graham was on the Wizards' active 18.
