The Fire scored their first goal of the season, but it wasn't nearly enough as Jose Luis Sanchez Sola's side continued its good form.Chivas USA scored a comprehensive 4-1 victory at Toyota Park over the Chicago Fire to improve their record to 2-1-1 on the season.
The game was scoreless until the 57th minute, when Edgar Mejia struck a rocket from 25 yards out after the Fire failed to properly clear a cross from the left flank.
The Fire found their first goal of the match -- and the season -- just a few minutes later when Sherjill MacDonald slipped Patrick Nyarko behind the defense and the Ghanaian slotted home.
The Chivas onslaught came in the final 20 minutes. First, off a free kick, Joaquin Velazquez floated a header over Fire keeper Paolo Tornaghi, who was caught in no man's land.
The points were sealed minutes later when Juan Agudelo shrugged off a Jeff Larentowicz challenge in the box, before curling a classy right-footed effort into the corner.
The home side's misery was complete when Jalil Anibaba turned into his own net with just minutes to play.
