Full Time: Crown Legacy FC 5-1 Chicago Fire II


CLFC plays through two weather delays to secure all three points

What you missed: After a weather delay, Crown Legacy FC was able to overcome an early goal by former CLFC midfielder David Poreba to get out to a 2-1 lead with goals from Aron John and Nick Scardina. After the second weather delay, defender Jahlane Forbes found the net and Charlotte FC Homegrown Nimfasha Berchimas netted a brace to extend the Club's lead to four and secure all three points.

Key Takeaways:

  • John's goal tonight makes him tied for fourth in all of MLS NEXT Pro for goal contributions with 10
  • Forbes' goal was his third in two matches
