BERLIN -- Arjen Robben and Thomas Mueller struck in extra time for Bayern Munich to beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the German Cup final on Saturday, giving their side the double in Pep Guardiolas first season in charge. C. J. Beathard Super Bowl Jersey . Robben scored in the 107th minute when Jerome Boateng intercepted Roman Weidenfellers throw out for Kevin Grosskreutz, and then crossed for the Dutchman at the far post. It set up a frenetic finale with Dortmund pushing for the equalizer that would have taken the game to penalties. Marco Reus came agonizingly close to equalizing in the final minute when his shot was deflected just over. Mueller then rounded Weidenfeller to wrap up the win in extra time injury time. Dortmund might have been awarded a goal in the second half. Mats Hummels thought hed scored with a header but Dante cleared on or behind the line. The score wasnt awarded though TV replays suggested the ball crossed the line. "If that goal from Dortmund was awarded it would have changed everything," Guardiola acknowledged. Bayern avenged its humiliating 5-2 loss to Dortmund in the 2012 final with its record 16th German Cup final win. "The most important thing is that we won. Its always something special. We took a lot of flak in the last weeks," Bayern captain Philipp Lahm said, referring to criticism after its Champions League loss to Real Madrid and drop of form after claiming the Bundesliga title with a record seven games to spare. Both sides effectively nullified the others attacking threat. Robben posed Bayerns biggest danger going forward but was dealt with adequately by Hummels or thwarted at the last by Weidenfeller, who made crucial saves. Robert Lewandowski, playing his last game for Dortmund before joining Bayern on July 1, was kept in check by Boateng and Dante, with Javi Martinez also helping out in the Bavarian sides defence. Bayern, which beat Stuttgart in last years final, created marginally the better chances in the first half. Franck Ribery, who came on for the injured Lahm, crossed for Mueller at the beginning of the second half only for Weidenfeller to save from close range. Reus struck the crossbar with a deflected free kick, though Manuel Neuer, playing in his fourth consecutive German Cup final, had it covered. Dortmund was then left to rue Hummels "goal" that wasnt given. "Well still celebrate because it was a great season," Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp said. Bayern players celebrated the clubs 10th league and cup double by hoisting Guardiola high in the air and dousing each other in beer. "I dont particularly like the beer showers but thats how it is," said Guardiola, who was drenched by Dante. Boateng said the players would "celebrate without end. Weve won the double in my hometown. There are no words for it. Compliments to Dortmund, they made it very difficult. But in the end, we had the bigger chances and we deserved it." Joe Montana Super Bowl Jersey . 1 Pete Sampras.

The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. Stenson had six birdies in the final round before finishing with an eagle at the 18th hole left him at 25 under for the tournament. It was his first victory of the season on the European Tour. "To achieve the double, double if you like in winning the DP World Tour Championship and the Race to Dubai on top of winning the PGA Tour Championship to capture the FedEx Cup takes some beating, I guess," Stenson said. "I am just very, veryy pleased with the way I played. Jeff Wilson Super Bowl Jersey. I knew it was going to be a tough week as I knew the guys like Justin (Rose) and Ian (Poulter) would come charging at me and try to catch me." Poulter birdied his closing two holes to shoot a 66 and finish second at 19 under. He also finished in second in the Race to Dubai. "I have to take my hat off to Henrik as he is unbelievable," Poulter said. "I tried to run him down as hard as I could but even with a sore wrist he has pressed on and I just could not get close enough. Henrik has not made a mistake all week and all I could do was make sure of second place and some valuable Ryder Cup points." Victor Dubuisson of France shot a 71 to claim third place at 17 under. Rory McIlroy continues to show signs of returning to form, closing with a 67 to share fifth place at 15-under par. Rose shot a 70 in the final round and shared 10th place with Swedens Peter Hanson.
