The Chicago Fire got a goal from Marco Pappa in the 58th minute and were able to hold on for a 1-0 victory over Sporting Kansas City on Saturday. Goalkeeper Sean Johnson was a huge reason why the Fire were able to come away with the win in Kansas City:

Johnson came up huge in second-half stoppage time, diving to his right to stop Soony Saad's blast from distance in the 93rd minute and to his left to deny Kei Kamara's low shot in the 96th. Those saves, and others, helped Chicago overcome a 27-7 disadvantage in shots.
