Berry headed Pavel Pardo’s perfect free kick over Toronto goalkeeper Milos Kocic from 10 yards out in the 84th minute to give the Fire the lead. Berry, a defender, outmaneuvered two Toronto defenders to position himself for his third goal of the year.
Pappa tied the match from close range in the 64th minute, firing a right-footed shot between the post and defender Richard Eckersley. Pappa, a midfielder, took a loose ball in the penalty area when Kocic failed to cradle it, then deked Eckersley before shooting. It was his team-leading sixth goal of the season.
The goal made up for Pappa’s misplay in the same area in the 16th minute. Aiming for a teammate, he misplayed a pass directly to Toronto’s Ryan Johnson. The forward left-footed a hard shot past Chicago goalkeeper Sean Johnson from 13 yards out for his fifth goal of the year.
Chicago (10-7-5), fifth in the Eastern Conference, snapped a two game winless streak. Toronto (5-13-4) played the last 11 minutes plus four minutes stoppage time a man down after defender Logan Emory was ejected for a pair of yellow cards, both for rough tackles.
