The Fire crept back towards the redline with a 2-1 victory over Orlando City in Florida. The win was fueled by two absolute golazos and an outstanding display in goal by Patrick McLain.
Aleksandar Katai converted a free kick from approximately 26 yards out in the 13th minute to give the Fire an early lead. Cristian Higuita answered for the home team in the 28th minute after a defensive breakdown.
Alan Gordon’s 30 yard screamer in the 82nd minute was the difference in the game as the Fire held on for a solid road win.
