Major League Soccer announced Wednesday that Chicago Fire forward Mike Magee has been voted the Major League Soccer Player of the Month for June by the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR). Currently tied for the MLS lead in goals scored, Magee scored four goals in all four of the Fire’s MLS matches in June.
Since joining the Fire from the LA Galaxy on May 25, Magee has led the Fire to an unbeaten June as the Men in Red went 3-0-1 in MLS play. Magee scored in the 2-0 victory against D.C. United on June 2, a 2-2 draw with the Portland Timbers on June 8 and 2-1 victory against the Colorado Rapids on June 19.
The Chicago native also assisted on Dilly Duka’s equalzing goal and scored the game-winner in a 2-1 victory over the Columbus on June 22, leading the Fire to their first road win of the season.
This is Magee’s second Player of the Month honor this season and his first as a Fire player. Magee started 2013 on an equally hot streak while with the Galaxy, scoring a hat trick in the Galaxy’s home opener against the Fire on March 3, converted a penalty kick in the Galaxy’s 1-0 win over the Colorado Rapids on March 24 and opened scoring in the Galaxy’s 2-2 draw with Toronto FC on March 30.
