The scoring started early and often. Nemanja Nikolic opened the scoring three minutes in for the Fire, but Roland Lamah answered back in the sixth minute for Dallas. Then David Accam retook the lead in the 9th minute, and the hosts held on for the rest of the match to win, even with Chris Seitz saving a late penalty by Nikolic.
FIRE ROLL AGAIN:
If you're having a hard time remembering the last time Chicago didn't win a game, you're not alone. This win makes it four in a row, which is their longest winning streak in MLS play since Sept. 2012. The Fire are now up to 2nd place in the Eastern Conference, and while they'll certainly drop some points in the weeks to come, it looks like things are coming together for Veljko Paunovic's side. The best part? This team is clearly miles ahead of recent Fire teams.
