HARRISON, N.J. - (AP) -- Peguy Luyindula had three assists and the New York Red Bulls beat the Chicago Fire 5-2 on Sunday to finish with Major League Soccer's best record.
The Fire put playoff tickets on sale this week, a necessity even though the club is yet to clinch a playoff berth.
The strangest season in the Fire’s 16-year history was bound to come down to this.
It’s possible that the Fire can clinch a playoff berth in Saturday’s last regular season home match against Toronto FC – but don’t count on it.
A return to the Major League Soccer playoffs seems very possible for the Fire now.
