The Chicago Fire Academy Under-17 side was back in action on Monday morning at day two of the 2019 Generation adidas Cup in Frisco, Texas.
After picking up four points on matchday one with a win over the Houston Dynamo and a penalty kick shootout defeat to Danish Superliga side FC Midtjylland (Both teams are awarded one point if a match is tied at regulation, with the shootout winner awarded one additional point), the Fire U-17s squared off against their counterparts from Orlando City SC in their lone match of the day.

The Fire now sit in second place in Group A of the Premier Division with seven points, trailing only Liga MX side Club Tijuana. The top team from each group advances to the semifinals.
