Chicago Fire 1-1 New England Revolution: Shuttleworth saves late penalty to deny Fire

Chicago Fire 1-1 New England Revolution: Shuttleworth saves late penalty to deny Fire

Mike Dinovo

The Fire recorded a sixth consecutive draw and, despite being a man down, Chicago will feel as though it was two points dropped.

Juan Luis Anangono had a poor penalty kick saved in stoppage time, as the 10-man Chicago Fire were denied all three points at home in a 1-1 draw with the New England Revolution.

The Fire grabbed the lead 15 minutes in when Harrison Shipp spotted Quincy Amarikwa streaking through the Revs defense and hit him with a perfect through ball. Amarikwa did the rest, squeezing his shot through Bobby Shuttleworth for his fourth goal of the season — a career high.

The visitors grabbed an equalizer just 15 minutes later when Lee Nguyen spotted a streaking Kevin Alston in the box, and Patrick Nyarko bundled the defender over for a penalty kick. Nguyen stepped up and buried the spot kick to even the match.

With 18 minutes remaining, the Fire were reduced to 10 men when Amarikwa was shown a second yellow card for a late challenge. Despite being down a man, the Fire should have won the match at the death.

Mike Magee's shot hit the post, and Alston denied Victor Pineda's follow-up off the line with his hand, forcing the referee to show a straight red card. However, Anangono's ensuing spot kick was saved by Shuttleworth, who also denied the rebound to save him team a point.
