Across State Lines: Ellis Goal Not Enough for Chicago

An update on Kansas City players.

MLS: Atlanta United FC at Chicago Fire Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Former Sporting Kansas City homegrown player, Kevin Ellis has found some success outside of Kansas City after a falling out in KC ended him time with Sporting. Ellis signed with the Chicago Fire after being waived by Sporting this offseason, since then, Ellis has become a regular part of the Fire team, appearing in seven of their eight games so far this season, starting six of them. This past weekend against Atlanta United, Ellis scored his first goal for his new club, a well hit volley to cut Atlanta’s 2-0 lead in half. Unfortunately for Ellis and the Fire they were unable to find a second goal to level the match.

Here is the rest of this week’s update.
