Nemanja Nikolic scores twice to help Fire beat Union 2-0

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) Nemanja Nikolic scored twice to runs his goals streak to four games and the Chicago Fire beat the Philadelphia Union 2-0 on Saturday night despite playing down a man throughout the second half.

Nikolic opened the scoring in the 38th minute. Przemyslaw Frankowski played a low cross from the right side to Nikolic for a first-timer from point-blank range. Nikolic converted from the spot in the 45th after C.J. Sapong drew a foul from Aurelien Collin in the area.

Chicago's Nicolas Gaitan was shown a straight red card for a serious foul in first-half stoppage time. (MORE)
