Donovan lands MLS title for Earthquakes


Landon Donovan scored twice on Sunday as the San Jose Earthquakes beat the Chicago Fire 4-2 in Major League Soccer's championship match.

It was the second title in three years for San Jose, which had to come from behind twice in the playoffs this season.

Donovan, whose extra-time goal against Kansas City in the Western Conference final propelled San Jose into the championship match, became the first player to score two goals in the MLS Cup.

The game, played before a capacity crowd of 27,000, was the highest-scoring in the Cup's eight-year history.
