Rolfe scores 2 in Fire's 3-1 win over Union

Posted: Updated:

CHESTER, Pa. (AP) -- Chris Rolfe scored two goals and Ame Friedrich added one to lead the Chicago Fire past the Philadelphia Union 3-1 on Sunday night.
 
   The Fire (11-7-5) moved past D.C. United and into fourth place in the Eastern Conference with 38 points. Chicago has won two straight and is 2-0-1 in its last three matches.
 
   Philadelphia took a short-lived lead with an own goal in the 34th minute, but Rolfe tied it the 43rd minute, and Friedrich gave the Fire a 2-1 advantage with a goal in stoppage time. Rolfe's second goal in the 56th minute gave Chicago a two-goal cushion.
 
   The Union (7-12-2) had won a franchise record four consecutive matches at PPL Park. They played without forward Jack McInerney, who received a red card in their last match, Aug. 4 at Montreal.
 
   Philadelphia also was missing captain and defender Carlos Valdes and midfielder Gabriel Gomez. Both players were called up for international duty, Valdes with Colombia, and Gomez with Panama.
