Midfielder Ryan Guy scored two goals in the final three minutes, but New England dropped its fourth match in the last nine starts (1-4-5).

Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis was whistled for tripping Nyarko in the penalty area in the fourth minute, setting up Grazzinis penalty kick score.

The Fire made it 2-0 in the ninth minute. Oduro broke through the defense, took Grazzinis feed and faked Reis before kicking the ball into an open net for his team-leading 11th goal of the year.

Nyarko capped the Chicago scoring in the 30th minute, giving the Fire their first 3-0 lead in three seasons.

Chicago goalkeeper Sean Johnson lost his shutout in the 90th minute. Guy chipped a shot over Johnson from 25 yards for his first goal of the year, then converted a hard shot in the first minute of stoppage time.
