MLS Game Summary - New York at Chicago



(Sunday, Aug. 10, 2014)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Chicago 1, New York 0

Bridgeview, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - A first-half tally from Mike Magee proved to be the difference on Sunday as the Chicago Fire earned a much- needed 1-0 victory over the New York Red Bulls at Toyota Park.

Chicago has struggled for much of the season, finding themselves with just 22 points this season, but Magee scored on the rebound following a penalty kick in the 39th minute for his seventh goal of the season and it held up as the winner to send the Fire to their fourth win of the campaign.

New York created several opportunities, but were stymied on multiple occasions by Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson and could never find an equalizer to remain on 28 points and in fourth place in the crowded Eastern Conference.

The deciding moment of the game did not come without its fair share of controversy as Quincy Amarikwa burst into the box and got tangled up with Red Bulls defender Ambroise Oyongo and went to ground, forcing referee Ted Unkel to make a decision and he pointed directly to the spot.

Magee stepped up and ripped it toward the left side netted, but it was kept out by New York goalkeeper Luis Robles. Unfortunately for New York, Robles parried it back into the path of Magee and he slotted it into the empty net.

The Red Bulls immediately answered with a chance as Thierry Henry had a go on the half-volley from the edge of the area, but it sailed well over the crossbar.

New York produced a handful of decent opportunities in the second half, but could not get anything past the quick reflexes of Johnson as the club suffered its seventh loss of the campaign.
