SEATTLE, Sept. 8 (UPI) --
An own-goal by Chicago's Gonzalo Segares in the 89th minute Saturday provided the difference in the Seattle Sounders' 2-1 win over the Fire.
The contest seemed headed for a draw when a centering pass by Seattle's Zach Scott bounded off defender Segares for the decisive tally.
Lamar Neagle also scored for the second-place Sounders (14-8-4), who trail Western Conference-leading Real Salt Lake by two points with two games in hand.
Mike Magee scored his league-leading 15th goal for Chicago (10-11-5).
