Austin Berry had an up and down professional debut and after giving away a penalty then scoring the equalizer, it looked like he would be the star of the match, for better and worse. Then this guy named Marco Pappa came along and stole the spotlight. The Guatemalan scored a stoppage time winner to hand the Chicago Fire three points and keep Chivas USA's home misery alive.
The match was all Fire from the beginning and by the end, they had two times as many shots as the Goats and seven shots on target to the home side's three. Only another sterling performance by Dan Kennedy kept Chivas from falling behind early, and eventually, they even took a shock lead.
A diagonal ball over the top aimed at Alejandro Moreno looked like it was going to sail clear of the Chivas striker and either into the hands of Sean Johnson or out for a goal kick, but then Berry got involved. He was clumsy in his challenge on Moreno, taking him down just inside the box. The referee pointed to the spot for it and Juan Pablo Angel converted the penalty to give the Goats a 1-0 lead.
Chivas would not be ahead for very long, though. Just two minutes after falling behind, Chicago came back down the other way. A corner kick was only cleared as far as Sebastian Grazzini, who played the ball back in and found Berry in behind the defense for a simple redirect past Kennedy to equalize.
Once even, Chicago poured on the pressure, only to be denied by Kennedy. The Chivas goalkeeper denied Pappa, Grazzini and Patrick Nyarko before Pappa finally beat him three minutes into stoppage time for the match winner.
