Beric, Navarro score in Fire's 2-0 victory over NYCFC
BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) Robert Beric and Federico Navarro scored and the lowly Chicago Fire beat New York City FC 2-0 on Wednesday night for their first victory in a month.
Gabriel Slonina, 17, made two saves for his first win, second straight shutout and third in five starts for Chicago (7-15-6).
Beric scored three minutes into the second half off a restart from Alvaro Medran. Navvaro scored his first goal for the Fire in the 66th.
New York City dropped to 11-10-6.
The game was played at SeatGeek Stadium, the Fire's home from 2006-19, because the NFL's Chicago Bears are playing Sunday at Soldier Field.
