Fire goes for three in a row over D.C. United
[U.S. OPEN CUP: Preview] Mike Magee needed only 11 minutes to score in his debut for
the Fire on May 29 -- a 2-0 win over the Charlotte Eagles in the third round of the Open Cup -- and he hasn't cooled off since arriving from the LA Galaxy. He leads the Fire into its semifinal match
of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup against D.C. United, which is three-for-three in Open Cup games this season but needed 22 games for it to win its third MLS game.
The Fire and D.C. United
are currently out of Eastern Conference playoff picture, so the former Open Cup champions -- six titles between them -- are both placing a lot of importance on their semifinal match at Toyota Park.
The Fire's four Open Cup titles are the most by an MLS club, and D.C. United won the tournament twice.
Magee has scored in all three Open Cup wins and added eight goals in MLS play to take over the scoring lead with 14. He may get help up front from Ecuadoran DP signing Juan Luis Anangono, who could make his Fire debut.
Chicago goes for three in a row over United at Toyota Field, having already won 2-0 and 4-1 in league
play this season. The lone D.C. goal was scored by Luis Silva.
Silva, who came over from Toronto, scored in Saturday's 3-1 win over Montreal to
give him goals in his last three matches heading into Wednesday's game.
Two other summer additions, Conor Doyle and Jared Jeffrey, scored their first MLS goals in Saturday's win, just United's third of the season.
