Fire Battle to a Tie with Revolution--Playoffs Still up in the Air

One more chance. That's all the Fire have left in the regular season to clinch a playoff spot. On October 22, in their finale match against Chivas USA, the Fire will attempt to make the playoffs with either a win or a tie.

Chicago fought hard against New England last night and successfully held the Revolution to a shutout with a 0-0 tie. While the Fire would have preferred a win, the opportunity for post season play is still alive. However, if the Fire fall to Chivas this week, the team will be forced to sweat it out until the weekend results are posted to see if they have made the playoffs.

So come cheer on the Fire as they fight to stay alive against Chivas USA on Thursday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. at Toyota Park.
