Chris Rolfe Leads Chicago Fire to a Comeback Win Versus the Columbus Crew

The Chicago Fire can win the MLS Cup!

That was my proclamation after witnessing their come-from-behind victory against the Columbus Crew Saturday night.

Over 19,000 fans jammed Toyota Park and watched Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson give a goal away on an errant pass. But there was no doubt that they would come back and win the game.

The ill-timed pass Johnson intended for defender Arne Friedrich went instead to an awaiting Jairo Arrieta, who caught Johnson out of position to score the goal in the 15th minute of play.

Instead of sulking, the Fire raised their intensity level and went on the attack offensively.

Fire forward and Kettering, Ohio native Chris Rolfe tied the match in the 23rd minute of play. Sharp passing by Sherjill MacDonald set up Rolfe’s goal beautifully.

As the crowd roared, Rolfe proved he was not finished, adding a go-ahead goal three minutes later. The goal ended up the game winner.
