The only good news for the New England Revolution tonight is that they don’t have to travel to Chicago or even play the Fire anymore in 2017.
The Chicago Fire, led by fullback Patrick Doody’s three assists, scored early and often against a Revs that has struggled mightily on the road.
Matt Polster scored the opener in the 8th minute after a feed from Joao Pedro. The Revs cancelled out this opener through Kei Kamara in the 24th minute after a Lee Nguyen set piece and then Doody took over the match.
The Fire left back notched three assists on the night, helping the Fire turn a competitive first half into a rout. Goals from Juninho in the 39th, Michael De Leeuw in the 49th and a dagger from substitute Luis Solignac in the 91st all featured Doody wuth the primary assist as the Fire regained and then stretched their lead to 4-1.

The Revs attack finished nine total shots, including five on target. One of the best chances for the Revs in the second half came on a long Teal Bunbury shot that Chicago keeper Matt Lampson parried away for one of his four saves on the night. Cody Cropper made one save in the loss.
The next Revolution match will be next Saturday, August 12th, against the Vancouver Whitecaps.
