Chicago Takes Fourth U.S. Open Cup
Chicago Takes Fourth U.S. Open Cup, September 28th, 2006 4:23PM

MOST COMMENTED

The Chicago Fire won its fourth U.S. Open Cup last night, beating the defending champ Los Angeles Galaxy 3-1 at Toyota Park. Nate Jaqua opened the scoring in the 10th minute, heading home after Andy Herron's shot across the goalmouth deflected toward him. Six minutes later Herron added his name to the scoresheet, heading in a cross from Justin Mapp. L.A. rallied in the second half and was able to cut the lead to one after 51 minutes. The Galaxy continued to apply pressure but Chicago defended well, and on 88 minutes, a Tony Sanneh-lead counterattack ended with a tap-in for substitute Thiago. It was the Fire's fourth match of the Open Cup at home in Bridgeview, where the team conceded just two goals en route to the championship. ''Playing here is a huge advantage for us,'' said coach Dave Sarachan, also the coach in '03. ''We've been road warriors in the Open Cup in the past. To win it and celebrate with all those fans in Section 8 gave us a special feeling. Our fans are the best.'' Chicago is the fifth team in history to win four Open Cups. This was its first since 2003.
