This Saturday’s game against LA Galaxy, what seemed like 3 points win for Chicago Fire turned tables and resulted in a draw which saddened Fire fans. Chicago Fire traveled to LA hoping to get 3 points, and early into the game fans believed they would from the match being in benefit of the Fire. In the first 16 minutes, men in red had two goals from David Accam and Nemanja Nikolic. Early into the Match, LA Galaxy lost two key players, midfielder Jermaine Jones and defender Jelle van Damme. This was an intense match. The Fire fought hard against LA Galaxy but was unlucky. Every Fire player put all their effort into the game. We saw new changes with Drew Conner playing as a defensive back and the return of goalkeeper Matt Lampson. Drew Conner played a great game securing the back line. Matt Lampson also had a good return, but two unlucky corners cost him the clean sheet. LA Galaxy had a total of 8 corners. In the 56th minute, Daniel Steres scored from one of the 8 corners, not long after Giovani dos Santos tied the game in the 65th minute from another corner.


The Fire was unlucky to concede from two corners. However, there’s a lesson to be learned from this game. The Fire had many chances to make the score 3-0 or even 4-0 in the first half. Nemanja Nikolic had plenty of opportunities yet couldn’t capitalize this match. Corners should be more protected around the box. Especially the second corner, which should have been more secure knowing LA had scored from one already. To sum it up, Chicago Fire needs to work on their away games considering they had three away games in a row and returned to the Windy City with only 1 point.
