In Chicago, just as the Chicago Fire have done in previous games, were the masters of their own downfall as the visitors equalized against the run of play in the 29th minute. Nyarko clumsily bundled the marauding Alston over in the box, and Lee Nguyen kept his nerve in front of the Fire faithful to convert the resulting penalty low toSean Johnson’s left.
Stefan Ishizaki bagged the game’s opener in the 38th minute, heading into the bottom right corner of David Ousted‘s goal. Baggio Husidic played a big part in the goal, heading across the Vancouver goal and into his teammate’s path.
Issey Nakajima-Farran put the visitors on top in the 21st minute with his second goal of the season. The goal came after a Toronto corner kick was poorly cleared out of the penalty box by Dallas. Former FCD midfielder Jackson played Nakajima-Farran the ball into the penalty box, the Calgary, Alberta, native fired one shot at Dallas ‘keeper Chris Seitz only see it punched right back to him where he would then volley it into the back of the net.
