COLUMBUS, Ohio — Lucas Zelarayán scored midway through the first half and provided the clinching goal in the 82nd minute, and the Columbus Crew claimed their second MLS Cup title beating the defending champions Seattle Sounders 3-0. 

Derrick Etienne Jr. also scored in the first half as Columbus built a 2-0 halftime lead, withstood Seattle’s second-half pressure and finally celebrated after Zelarayán’s clincher. 

Zelarayán was the MLS newcomer of the year and the best player on the field. 

Seattle was denied in its chance to be the first repeat champion in MLS since the LA Galaxy in 2011-12.
