Match Highlights: Chicago Fire vs. Chivas USA

Another match. Another draw. Quickly closing in on a new MLS record for draws, the Fire played to a 1-1 draw with Chivas USA on Saturday night at The Home Depot Center. With their 12th draw of the season the Fire inches closer to the FC Dallas record of 14 draws in a single season. Although unable to find the back of the net with any great frequency, the Fire's rather resolute defense (thanks in large part to the play of goalkeeper Sean Johnson) has helped keep them off the bottom of the table and (at least mathematically) in contention for post season play.  Having tied seven of their last eight league matches (including the last four in a row), Chicago needs only three more draws to set a new single season mark. With 16 matches remaining, let the wagering begin.
