The Chicago Fire had a lead on the New York Red Bulls before even five minutes had elapsed Sunday, and they'd use that fast start to earn a 3-1 victory over the Red Bulls. With the win, the Fire improved to 6-5-3 overall; they sit in fourth place in the East, nine points behind No. 1 D.C. United.
Patrick Nyarko got things started with a goal in the fourth minute; the Red Bulls got the equalizer 10 minutes into the second half. Gonzalo Segares re-claimed the lead for Chicago in the 68th minute and Chris Rolfe scored the team's third goal 13 minutes later.
The Fire return to the pitch on June 23 when they host Columbus.
