David Accam helps Chicago Fire end FC Dallas' six-game unbeaten streak

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) — David Accam and Shaun Maloney scored and the Chicago Fire beat FC Dallas 2-0 on Sunday night to end a three-game winless streak.

The loss snapped a six-game unbeaten streak — and five-game win streak — for FC Dallas (11-6-5), which was shut out for the first time since June 6 against San Jose.

Jason Johnson found a streaking Accam for a right-footer from just outside the 6-yard box to open the scoring in the fourth minute.

Chicago's Matt Watson was shown a red card in the 78th minute, but Kennedy Igboananike drew a foul in the penalty area on Kellyn Acosta, and Maloney's penalty kick to bottom-left corner gave the Fire (6-11-4) a 2-0 lead about 7 minutes later.

Dallas nearly doubled Chicago in time of possession, but had just three shots on target — two of which came in stoppage time.
