The Chicago Fire managed to beat the New England Revolution 3-0 in the Major League Soccer playoffs on Thursday.
The Fire reached the semifinals 3-0 on aggregate after the first leg ended in a goalless draw.
Chris Rolfe, Wilman Conde and Gonzalo Segares scored the goals for Chicago.
“I wish I could take the credit for Rolfe’s play,” Fire head coach Denis Hamlett said. “Every time we play on ESPN2, he seems to come to life. Chris is probably one of the most clinical guys around the goal. Tonight he got himself in good spots. When our attacking guys step up and play their games, we are a hard team to play against.”
“This is especially a big win for me,” added Rolfe. “They’ve knocked me out of the playoffs every year that I’ve been here.”
The Fire will face either Columbus Crew or the Kansas City Wizards next Thursday for the Eastern Conference title.
