Draw keeps Fire winless in last 5
Kenneth Kronholm had to make only one save Saturday night against D.C. United to earn his first shutout with the Fire, but it was a big one.
Kronholm blocked Wayne Rooney’s curling free kick in the 66th minute, preserving a scoreless draw in front of a season-high crowd of 18,232 at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview.
The Fire (5-10-9) are nine points out of a playoff spot with 10 matches remaining. They’re winless in their last five matches and 1-6-5 in their last 12.
Bill Hamid made two saves to pick up his ninth shutout of the season for D.C. United (9-6-9), which is in third place in the Eastern Conference.
