|Fire and Real Salt Lake Draw
|SANDY, Utah (AP) -- Quincy Amarikwa scored in the 84th minute to counter a goal from Alvaro Saborio in the 78th and the Chicago Fire played Real Salt Lake to a 1-1 draw Saturday night.
The Fire (2-7-2) snapped a three-match losing streak and improved to 3-2-3 all-time in Utah. Chicago is the only MLS club with a winning road record against Salt Lake (6-5-3).
Saborio scored a few minutes after coming on as a second-half substitute for Robbie Findley. Playing for the first time in a month, Saborio headed home a crossing pass to put Salt Lake up 1-0.
The Fire wasted no time stepping up on the other end, breaking a scoreless drought of 361 minutes with Amarikwa's goal. Chicago hadn't scored since a 1-0 victory over Columbus on April 20th.
