  • 14' - GOAL Fire! Julio Martinez on a nice sliding finish from a Marco Pappa cross.

  • 18' - Nyarko gets space and shoots!

  • 26' - Huge flurry in front of the Fire goal as Dykstra comes up big after fumbling the initial ball which led to the danger.

  • In reply to cesba:

    Can Dykstra hold on to the ball regardless if it is rainy or day? He got a break there.

  • In reply to longoria3:

    48' - GOAL!! Nyarko feeds a ball into McBride who finishes calmly.

    Banner and McBride have entered for Martinez and John.

  • In reply to longoria3:

    50' - Goal KC as Kamara rolls a worm burner past a screened Dykstra. Too much room to shoot and Kamare takes advantage....2-1 Fire

  • In reply to longoria3:

    67' - Nyarko with a great run but misses just wide on the shot

  • In reply to longoria3:

    67' - Dykstra with a nice save on Ryan Smith's shot from distance

  • In reply to longoria3:

    Final 2-2 in a match full of opportunities for both sides.

  • In reply to longoria3:

    shaky second half for the Fire. No excuses for blowing a 2 goal lead. Fire needs to score 4 goals to give Dykstra a win. Can't afford to waste games like this.

  • 46' - Arnaud finds the back of the net just after the ref's whistle blows play dead as Conde is down inside the box.

  • Halftime Fire 1 KC 0 - a good 45 minutes on the road but Kansas City controlled the possesion for the last 15 minutes of the half.
