MONTREAL (AP) — Quincy Amarikwa scored in the 54th minute and the Chicago Fire tied the Montreal Impact 1-1 on Saturday at Olympic Stadium, leaving both teams winless.

Off a corner, midfielder Jeff Larentowicz's header rang off the crossbar before falling to Mike Magee, who squared it across to Amarikwa in the 18-yard box for his third goal of the season.

Chicago is 0-1-5.

Newcomer Jack McInerney, acquired from the Philadelphia Union in exchange for Andrew Wenger, scored in the 42nd minute for Montreal (0-3-3).

"Other than the goal, I didn't do well at all," McInerney said. "I didn't find the ball much out there. But it's only the first game. I've only been here a week."

Impact coach Frank Klopas faced his former team for the first time since being let go in October.

"There were moments when they were good," said Klopas, who played for the Fire in the late '90s and coached the squad for 81 games over three seasons from 2011-13.

"For sure, it's going to get better as time goes on. We talked about moving the ball quickly, switching the point of attack, looking to combine with both strikers in order to break through."
