COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Mike Magee had the winning goal and Joel Lindpere had two assists to help the Chicago Fire rally in the second half for a 2-1 victory over the Columbus Crew on Saturday night.

Lindpere found former Crew midfielder Dilly Duka at the far post for a right-footed stab that tied the game 1-1 in the 52nd minute.

Two minutes later, Lindpere assisted on Magee's 10th goal, sending a cross into the box that Magee chested into the goal.
