- FC Dallas has now lost two in row, as the Chicago Fire extended their winning streak to match the second-best in franchise history.
BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) Nemanja Nikolic and David Accam scored in the opening 10 minutes and the Chicago Fire beat FC Dallas 2-1 on Thursday night.
Chicago (7-3-3) extended its winning streak to four games to match the second-longest run in club history. FC Dallas (5-2-4) has lost two straight after a fast start.
Nikolic opened the scoring in the third minute. Bastian Schweinsteiger was left alone on the left side and he sent in a cross that Nikolic redirected home at the near post.
