Sunday, November 23, 2008. (AP) -- Guillermo Barros Schelotto led Columbus to victory in the MLS Cup on Sunday, capping his MVP season with three assists in the Crew's 3-1 victory over the New York Red Bulls.
Alejandro Moreno scored in the first half for Columbus and, after New York tied it 1-1 early in the second, Chad Marshall and Frankie Hejduk added goals for the Crew.
Both teams were original members of the MLS when it began in 1996, and both were playing in the league championship game for the first time.
