The Fire wrapped up the California portion of pre-season training with a 2-0 loss to the San Jose Earthquakes. A third minute goal by Steven Lenhart and another score in the thirty-eighth from Brad Ring provided all of the scoring in a 75 minute match. The Fire created a few chances but couldn't break through in the final third.
The team will depart for Chicago today before heading for Charleston, South Carolina to face DC United next Saturday.
