Shut­tle­worth helps Fire pick up a point

Chicago Sun-Times - - SPORTS -

CINCIN­NATI — Bobby Shut­tle­worth made three saves, and the Fire played FC Cincin­nati to a 0-0 draw Wed­nes­day night.

The Fire’s Ig­na­cio Aliseda had an ap­par­ent goal waved off midway through the sec­ond half be­cause of a hand­ball on Boris Sekulic.

FC Cincin­nati (2-4-3), which lost to the Fire (2-5-2) 3-0 on Aug. 25, is win­less in its last four games with three score­less draws.

Shut­tle­worth de­flected Maikel van der Werff’s header in the first minute of the first half, then dove to his left to stop Adrien Re­gat­tin’s shot from dis­tance in the 28th minute.

The teams played to a score­less tie in the only other meet­ing at Cincin­nati’s Nip­pert Sta­dium last Septem­ber.


Fire for­ward Fabian Her­bers heads the ball to­ward goal Wed­nes­day night in Cincin­nati.
