The Fire won a game they had to win by defeating a weak San Jose side at home but Veljko Paunovic wasn't happy with his team following the match. The coach cited a lack of seriousness and professionalism in closing out the contest. The Fire took a two-goal lead on scores by Alan Gordon and Aleksandar Katai but a 74th minute turnover at midfield got the visitors back into the match.
