[SUPERLIGA] Two MLS teams that reached the SuperLiga semifinals last year encountered very different outcomes in their 2010 openers. After New England beat UNAM Pumas, 1-0, at Gillette Stadium on a goal by rookie Zack Schilawski, Morelia handed Chicago a 5-1 pasting at Toyota Park.

Schilawski, who has scored five goals in league play, put away a pass from Marko Perovic in the 18th minute and keeper Bobby Shuttleworth staved off UNAM with a few good saves.

Five different players scored for Morelia, which took the lead when Elias Hernandez scored in the fourth minute and hit two more goals before halftime. Fire rookie right back Steve Kinney, who hit the post twice with headers last weekend against Real Salt Lake, scored early in the second half but Morelia replied a minute later and added a fifth goal in the 70th minute.

The Revs and Fire met in last year’s semifinals, with Chicago pulling out a 2-1 victory. They will square off again Saturday, when play in Group B resumes with the American and Mexican teams meeting their league rivals at Toyota Park.

Group A begins Thursday with Houston hosting Pachuca at Robertson Stadium (8 p.m. ET, TeleFutura), and Chivas USA playing Puebla at Home Depot Center (10:30 p.m. ET, Galavision).

    Fire is in disarray...has been since the start of the season and can't find the proper chemistry to produce winning soccer.
