Nov 10 (Reuters) - Three second half goals gave Seattle Sounders their second MLS Cup title in four years as the home side beat Toronto FC 3-1 in front of a capacity crowd at CenturyLink Field on Sunday.

Seattle took the lead after 57 minutes when Kelvin Leerdam’s angled shot hit defender Justin Morrow and flew into the net.

Victor Rodriguez doubled Seattle’s lead after 76 minutes when he lashed home a low drive from 18 metres before Raul Ruidiaz wrapped up the victory for the Washington outfit when he finished off a quick counter attack in the 90th.
