Chicago Fire U-23 lifted a title over the weekend, defeating Chattanooga FC, 2-1, to win the U.S. Soccer National Amateur Championship.

Mauricio Pineda scored the game-winner following a corner kick in the 108th minute of extra time.

The Fire's Mark Segbers tapped in the first goal of the game in the 22nd minute after receiving a low cross from Elliot Collier. Chattanooga FC's response came just after halftime. Luke Winter blasted in a shot during the 48th minute, and neither side could break the deadlock until extra time.

The Fire pummeled West Chester United, 6-1, in their semifinal matchup on Friday, setting up Saturday's showdown with Chattanooga FC.

The Fire will now host the St. Louis Lions in PDL action at 6 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
