The Fire dropped to 6-10-5 on the season following at 3-1 loss to FC Dallas. Playing without Bastian Schweinsteiger, Dax McCarty, Nemanja Nikolic, and Aleksandar Katai to start the game, the Fire seemed to be sacrificing this match with an eye towards Wednesday night's US Open match against Louisville City.
Brandt Bronico scored the Fire's only goal in the 86th minute of a lackluster effort. Drew Conner was shown a second yellow card in the 70th minute with the game still only 1-0.
