Earthquakes nab first soccer title
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Dwayne DeRosario scored six minutes into overtime as the San Jose Earthquakes beat the Los Angeles Galaxy 2-1 Sunday to win their first MLS Cup.
DeRosario dribbled around Dan Calif and sent a hard shot from 16 yards out which goalkeeper Kevin Harman got a hand on but couldn't push past the far post.
The victory completed a worst-to-first turnaround for San Jose under new coach Frank Yallop.
Last season, the Earthquakes were 7-17-8, the poorest record in the league. This season, they went 13-7-6, finishing second to Los Angeles in the Western Division.
