LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles FC beat the Philadelphia Union to claim its first MLS Cup championship.

Gareth Bale tied it at 3-3 on a dramatic header in the eighth minute of extra-time stoppage time, and backup goalkeeper John McCarthy stopped two Philadelphia shots in a 3-0 penalty kicks win.

After Bale came on as a substitute and scored the tying goal for 10-man LAFC, Denis Bouanga, Ryan Hollingshead and Ilie Sanchez scored in the shootout.

McCarthy is a Philadelphia native and former Union keeper who came on for injured Maxime Crepeau during the second extra period.

He didn’t allow a goal on the Union’s three shootout attempts.
