Nyarko winner lifts Fire past winless TFC

Reggie Lambe gave Toronto FC fans a brief glimmer of home on Saturday, scoring two goals four minutes apart to erase a first-minute goal from Chicago's Dominic Oduro.

Then the TFC defense collapsed.

The Fire scored two unanswered goals, including a game-winning tally from Patrick Nyarko, to give the Fire a 3-2 victory at BMO Field on Saturday.

The loss dropped Toronto to 0-6, tied for the worst start in MLS history.

Chicago jumped all over Toronto when Nyarko converted an early  TFC turnover into a scoring chance that Oduro put away just 25 seconds into the match.

Lambe responded with two goals just before halftime to give Toronto hope, but that hope lasted a minute as Fire defender Gonzalo Segares equalized before the break.

The win improves Chicago's record to 2-1-2.

What did you think of Chicago's performance? Can you see Toronto turning things around, or is it time for Aron Winter to go?
