VOTE: Santos' 700th Strike in Fire History up for Goal of the Week

By Jeff Crandall

Maicon Santos' 83rd minute goal on Sunday was big for more than one reason. Yes it was the game-winner. Yes it got the 899 minute scoreless monkey off his back but it also stands as the 700th regular season goal in Chicago Fire history.

See below the list of other Fire centurions... Ironically enough, three of the club's seven centurion goals came against New York...

Number Player Result/Date
100 Josh Wolff 8/22/1999 4-3 L (SO) at Dallas
200 David Hayes 6/30/2001 3-1 W vs. MetroStars
300 Damani Ralph 7/19/2003 3-1 W vs. New England
400 Thiago 8/10/2005 3-2 L vs. Kansas City
500 Chad Barrett 5/25/2008 5-1 W vs. New York
600 Peter Lowry 10/8/2010 vs. Columbus
700 Maicon Santos 4/7/2013 vs. New York

Now, what could be better? Maicon's 83rd minute winner is also up for MLS Goal of the Week. VOTE HERE or Text G5 to 22442!
