Late goal gives Louisville City its first USL championship

Postado Novembro 14, 2017

It's nearly as cruel as four consecutive years of Knockout Round eliminations in the MLS Cup Playoffs.

More than 14,000 turned out for the match against the Swope Park Rangers with Louisville Slugger Field being over capacity.

Yet the evening would end in heartbreak for Moloto and his teammates, as on 88 minutes, Louisville's Cameron Lancaster rose highest from a cross to head home, securing the 1-0 victory as his side lifted the 2017 USL Cup.

Both teams hit the back of the net in the first, but both goals were called back for offside. In the second half Swope Park Rangers began to boss the game with Louisville picking their moments to attack.

Louisville City picked up the win and the USL Cup.

After winning the Eastern Conference last week, City faces a team they have never seen before.

The new champions, only in their third season of existence, received approval from the city of Louisville a little over a week ago to construct a soccer stadium which is set to open in 2020.
