Seattle get first ever MLS Cup final berth

MLS: Western Conference Championship-Seattle Sounders at Colorado Rapids Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

The most talked about team in MLS will finally have a chance to stake its claim to the MLS crown.

After taking the first leg at Seattle, a 2-1 win, the Seattle Sounders went to Colorado to beat the comeback team of the year. A goal from Jordan Morris, from a Lodeiro pass, was enough to give a 1-0 lead to the Sounders.

After a season full of up and downs and a coaching change, the gamble by the Seattle brass seems to have paid off.

Now the Western Conference champions will wait for Wednesday's Eastern Conference final, a Canadian affair, as the Montreal Impact and Toronto FC will look to create a new page in their own history.

If Toronto FC goes through, the MLS Cup final will be played at BMO field. If the Impact go through, the Bleu-blanc-noir will travel to Seattle and try to lift the cup at CenturyLink field.
