FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Quincy Amarikwa scored in the 3rd minute and Sean Johnson saved a penalty kick in the 86th to seal the Chicago Fire’s 1-0 win over the New England Revolution on Saturday.
Johnson dove to the right and got his right hand on Chris Tierney’s low left-footed PK. The block sent the ball into the air, off the post and rested on the goal line before Johnson secured it.
Johnson’s big stop helped the Fire (3-4-10) stop a six-game winless streak. It was the fifth consecutive MLS loss for New England (7-8-2).
Amarikwa’s goal was Chicago’s quickest score of the season. He won a long ball from Mike Magee and chipped home a shot past Revolution goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth.
The Revolution played without leading scorer Lee Nguyen after he was suspended for one game for endangering the safety of an opponent.
