MOST COMMENTED

The Chicago Fire beat Everton, 2-0, on goals by Chris Rolfe and Tomasz Frankowski. The friendly win over last season's fifth-place finisher in the English Premier League was watched by 9,125 fans in Bridgeview, Ill.

The Fire outshot Everton, 17-7. Rolfe scored in the 42nd minute off a cross from Gonzalo Segares. Rolfe controlled the ball and shot into the upper left corner past Everton's American goalkeeper Tim Howard.

Frankowski scored in 70th minute, finishing a rebound after Howard blocked Peter Lowry's shot.

"It was a pretty exciting game to be a part of," Fire midfielder Logan Pause said. "Any time you get an opponent like that, it's exciting. Obviously they are in the middle of their preseason, so there were two different teams in two different parts of their season. But we came out trying to move things along and I felt we did that tonight."

Fire coach Denis Hamlett played most of his regulars in the first half, then made 11 halftime substitutions.
