David Accam helps Fire extend unbeaten streak
The Chicago Fire are on a roll.
After Saturday’s 4-0 win over Orlando City, the Fire extended their unbeaten streak in MLS play to nine matches and overall matches streak to ten.
The Fire kept the streak alive with a big day from forward David Accam who finished with a hat trick, scoring three goals. Heading into the match, the Fire made a change by inserting Accam into the starting lineup.
It paid off right away.
Accam found the back of the net in the third minute with a beautiful back heel flick to put the Fire up 1-0.

The win earned the Fire their 34th point of the season and they are just one point behind Toronto FC for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
The Fire will play FC Cincinnati in the Round of 16 of the U.S. Open Cup on Wednesday. They return to MLS play on Saturday, July 1 when they host Vancouver.
