Our Reserve Team Can Score

The Fire managed to end its scoreless and winless streak by beating USL Division II team Cleveland City Stars 4-1. They fielded a mostly reserve team other than Chris Rolfe and Chad Barrett starting up front (which might explain their absence from the starting lineup on Saturday night). Goals came from Calen Carr, Chad Barrett and two from somebody called Mike Banner.
