Przybylko sparks Fire to 3-2 victory over Charlotte FC

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Kacper Przybylko scored two goals to lead the Chicago Fire to a 3-2 victory over Charlotte FC on Saturday.

Yordy Reyna staked Charlotte to a 1-0 lead in the first minute of the match.

Chicago (8-10-6) answered with back-to-back goals from Przybylko and Federico Navarro three minutes apart to grab a 2-1 lead in the 24th minute.

Charlotte (9-13-2) pulled even at halftime on Karol Swiderski's goal in the 45th minute.

The Fire took the lead for good on a goal by Przybylko in the 52nd minute - his team-leading fifth of the season. Xherdan Shaqiri had an assist on the winning goal as Chicago improved to 4-0-1 in its last five matches to move past Charlotte in the standings.
