Montreal, QC (SportsNetwork.com) - Jack McInerney scored in his debut for the Montreal Impact on Saturday, but Quincy Amarikwa answered for the Chicago Fire to help his team claim a 1-1 draw at Olympic Stadium.
The result leaves both sides without a win this season and continues a trend for both teams of collecting one point at a time.
Chicago has now drawn its last five games while Montreal has settled for a point in its last three contests after starting the campaign on a three-game losing skid.
The Fire squandered a good chance to take the lead in the 35th minute when Lovel Palmer's cross set up a great opportunity for Jeff Larentowicz, which he shot over the net with goalkeeper Troy Perkins at his mercy.
Eight minutes later, Montreal seized the advantage as a nice flick from Marco Di Vaio released McInerney in behind the Fire defense, where he managed to slip a shot past goalkeeper Sean Johnson.
Di Vaio wasted a chance to double his team's lead in the 50th minute when he smashed a shot just over the crossbar from a good position following a cross delivered by Felipe Martins.
But Larentowicz atoned for his earlier miss when he headed a ball off the crossbar that allowed Amarikwa to finish off the rebound in the 55th to earn the Fire another draw.
