Anangono brace leads Reserves to 3-2 win

Two goals from Juan Luis Anangono led the Chicago Fire Reserves to a 3-2 win over USL-Pro's Charlotte Eagles on Friday night. The Fire found themselves trailing by two after 15 minutes thanks to goals by former Revolution midfielder Zak Boggs and Jorge Herrera. Anangono scored his first in the 21st minute and Quincy Amarikwa leveled the match in first half stoppage time.

The Designated Player's second of the match in the 54th proved to the game winner and pushed the Reserve record to 4-1-0 this season. This was the second reserve match of the week. Rochester defeated Chicago at Toyota Park on Monday by a 2-0 score.

This match featured a mix of bench players and starters with the Fire on a bye week. Gonzalo Segares saw his first game action since injuring his ankle in round two at Portland. On loan forward Giuseppe Gentile started for the Eagles.

    *I was assuming Brad Davis was out

  • In reply to BrianC.:

    Portland is due.

  • It looks like Anongano has figured out the proper level of competition for his talents. Are there any US third division sides willing to take over his contract?

  • Looking forward to RSL on Saturday. I think even without Quincy the Fire have a chance to win. RSL does not seem to play well on the road. Given the Fire's new possession oriented attack, I think that takes away RSL's strength. I would like to see Mike Magee up top and Benji Joya on the wing with Shipp in the middle. If Duka is healthy, I would start him ahead of Benji.

  • In reply to Krasov:

    Should be a good game. RSL is the last undefeated team but they gave away two points themselves last night and have five draws of their own.

  • In reply to Krasov:

    If you want to see Joya play you better look to buy some tickets to LigaMX games next year. He doesn't fit the Fire mold -- he skillful!!!

  • The spread between 1st place and 10th place in the East is 6 points (after week 9.) How's that for parity?

  • In reply to BrianC.:

    Parity....the saving grace for 0-1-6 starts..........
