CHESTER, Pennsylvania — Kennedy Igboananike scored his second goal of the game in extra time and Sean Johnson had eight saves to help the Chicago Fire rally for a 3-3 draw with the Philadelphia Union on Sunday night.

Igboananike tied it in the 92nd minute, finding the top-left corner of the net. He put away a left-footer, splitting two defenders at the top of the 6-yard box, off a cross from Patrick Nyarko in the ninth minute.

Goals by Fernando Aristeguieta and Fabio Alves gave Philadelphia (6-13-5) a 2-1 lead at the half.

Patrick Nyarko scored in the 54th, off a cross by Igboananike, to make it 2-2, but Sebastien Le Toux put the Union back on top with a right-footer from the middle of the box in the 90th minute.

Philadelphia is winless in its last five matches and hasn't won a game in which it conceded the first goal this season.

Chicago (6-12-5) is 0-16-5 on the road since beating New England on July 12, 2014.
