CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Mike Magee scored his league-leading 14th goal in the 75th minute to lift the Chicago Fire over the Philadelphia Union 2-1 on Saturday.

Magee scored a goal in his third straight game and has eight goals in 10 games since coming to the Fire from the L.A. Galaxy.

Patrick Nyarko also added a goal and an assist for the Fire, who improved to 8-9-4.

Chicago is 2-0-1 in its past three games and got even for two previous losses to the Union this season.

Nyarko’s goal in the ninth minute gave the Fire a 1-0 lead.

Sheanon Williams tied the game at 1 in the 60th minute when he finished a cross off a free kick by Sebastien Le Toux. It was Le Toux’s league-best 10th assist.

The Union had been 2-0-1 in their previous three games. They fell to 5-3-4 at home and 9-7-7 overall.

Chicago improved to 4-5-1 against the Union.
