BRIDGEVIEW, Ill., Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Alex scored the go-ahead tally in the 61st minute Saturday and the Chicago Fire rallied for a 3-1 win over Montreal.

The Fire had spotted the Impact a 1-0 lead, but Sherjill MacDonald notched the equalizer in the 34th minute on a header off a cross from Jalil Anibaba.

Then in the second half, Chicago grabbed the lead for good when Alvaro Fernandez sent a pass into the penalty area and found Alex, who beat Montreal goalkeeper Troy Perkins with a shot to the upper corner.

Fernandez later added an insurance tally for the Fire (15-8-5), who are looking to secure a Western Conference playoff spot.

Marco Di Vaio scored for the Impact (12-15-3).
