Second-half substitute Nick DeLeon scored on a wonderfully-worked counterattack in the 76th minute, and Toronto FC held on to record their second straight away win with a 2-1 victory over Chicago Fire FC at Soldier Field on Saturday night.

Yeferson Soteldo added his second MLS goal two minutes into his ninth Reds appearance, helping Toronto remain unbeaten four matches into interim manager Javier Perez's tenure.

Alex Bono made 13 saves, several of the exceptional variety, to smash a 13-year-old club record and keep the hosts from finding an equalizer. However, Alvaro Medran pulled a goal back for the Fire moments after DeLeon made it 2-0.

Chicago tied a club record with 31 attempts on target, but couldn't avoid seeing their winless run grow to three matches. They've been competing without head coach Raphael Wicky, who's absent due to a family health matter.
