It was a historic season for Los Angeles FC, but they came up short in the MLS Western Conference final on Tuesday.

For the third time in the past four seasons, it will be the Seattle Sounders who will be representing the Western Conference in the MLS Cup final after defeating LAFC 3-1.

The number one seeded LAFC got on the board first on a Eduard Atuesta free kick in the 17th minute, but Seattle roared right back with a pair of goals for a four minute span from Raul Ruidiaz and Nicolas Lodeiro.

Ruidiaz would put the contest out of reach in the second half and secure the spot in the finals next month for Seattle.

LAFC star Carlos Vela, who ended the 2019 regular season with a record-breaking 34 goals, was ineffective throughout Tuesday night’s contest due to the Sounders limiting the Mexican by playing a physical brand of soccer.

Bob Bradley’s team finished with a MLS record 72 points to win the Supporters’ Shield, tied the record for goals scored in a single season with 85 and set a new mark for goal differential with a plus-48.

Seattle is the fourth team to reach three MLS Cup finals in four years, joining DC United, the LA Galaxy and New England Revolution. The Sounders won the MLS Cup in 2016, defeating Toronto FC in a shootout before falling to the same team a year later in the title match.

Seattle will take to the field for the championship match on November 10. Their opponent will be either of the past two MLS Cup champions, Toronto FC or Atlanta United who take the pitch on Wednesday night for the final berth in the 2019 MLS Cup finals.
