CHICAGO – There wasn’t a lot to cheer about early in their season. After all, they scored only four goals in their first nine games – two coming in the opening minutes of their season opener.
That’s why after a loss to FC Cincinnati on June 23rd they sat in last place in all of Major League Soccer.
But three-straight home games after that at Soldier Field saw the club make a remarkable turnaround. Not only did they find the offense, scoring three goals in every match, but they came out of the stretch with seven points.
A draw with the Philadelphia Union was followed by wins over Atlanta United FC (3-0) and Orlando City SC (3-1) to boost the club out of last place in the MLS.
Larry Hawley has more on the club’s great stretch on WGN News Now on Friday, and you can watch the story in the video above.
