BRIDGEVIEW, Ill., Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Jaime Moreno Sunday scored the equalizer in the 83rd minute as D.C. United and Chicago played to a 1-1 draw in an MLS match at Bridgeview, Ill.
Moreno's sixth goal this season left United (15-6-5) with a three-point lead over second-place New England in the Eastern Conference, as it tries to win the MLS Supporters' Shield for the second straight season.
The Fire (8-10-8) led for most of the contest after Chad Barrett scored their goal in the 18th minute.
D.C. midfielder Domenic Mediate and Moreno had shots on goal in the 34th and 42nd minutes, respectively, but both attempts resulted in diving saves by Fire goalkeeper Matt Pickens.
Chicago is out of the MLS playoff chase, but United has secured a spot.
