For now, at least, Sunday’s battle between the Fire and New York Red Bulls is the most important match of the weekend in Major League Soccer.
A return to the Major League Soccer playoffs seems very possible for the Fire now.
Rarely does a reserve team match create a potential impact on a first team battle, but the Fire’s latest one might.
This was one of those rare losses that could put a smile on the face of Fire coach Frank Klopas.
Those 2-0 wins over the minor league Charlotte Eagles and D.C. United, the worst team in Major League Soccer, in the last two matches were nice.
