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.

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.
