Final Score: Chicago 1, Colorado 1
Commerce City, CO (Sports Network) - The Chicago Fire and Colorado Rapids
played to a 1-1 draw at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Saturday, extending
winless streaks for both teams.
Gonzalo Segares had an early chance to put Chicago in front when he got into
the penalty area on the left and just missed beating goalkeeper Matt Pickens
at his near post.
However, the Fire (1-3-3) went in front shortly before halftime when Dominic
Oduro's low cross from the right wing found Marco Pappa in front of goal for a
redirection past Pickens from a few yards.
The home side was able to answer in the 49th minute through Andre Akpan, who
scored his first MLS goal after taking a pass inside the area from Omar
Cummings and beating goalkeeper Jon Conway with a shot inside the far post.
But neither side was able to muster up a winner and the Fire have now gone
winless in their last five games, while Colorado (3-3-1) is winless in four
straight games after opening the season with three successive victories.
