CHICAGO (AP) Gabriel Slonina became the youngest goalkeeper to start an MLS game and finished with four saves to help the Chicago Fire tie New York City FC 0-0 on Wednesday night.
At 17 years, 81 days, Slonina broke the record set by David Monsalve (18 years, 220 days) in 2007 with Toronto FC.
New York City (8-5-3) played a man down after Keaton Parks was shown his second yellow card in the 73rd minute.
Chicago (3-9-5) has lost only two of its last eight games after losing seven of its previous eight matches.
