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...
|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|
