Dynamo, Rapids play to 0-0 draw

Neither team was able to get on the board in this scoreless Saturday night match.

The Houston Dynamo and the Colorado Rapids played to an underwhelming 0-0 tie on Saturday night.

The first half of the match between the two MLS teams was a bit of a boring one. Tyler Deric made two big saves to keep Colorado off the score board. Houston had few chances in the first half.

Sheanon Williams came off field just fifteen minutes into the match due to an unknown (potential) injury and Jalil Anibaba came on in his place.

In the second half Houston started to create more chances offensively but couldn't quite get past Zac MacMath. One of the top chances of the night for the Dynamo was a shot by Giles Barnes but it smacked into the woodwork and away from the net. Then a golden opportunity presented for the Dynamo to try and get on the scoreboard after Mauro Manotas was pushed in the back by Bobby Burling in the box and Houston was awarded a penalty kick. Ricardo Clark stepped up to take the penalty kick and skied the ball over, well, everything including the net. While Houston had the edge in the second half they weren't able to come away with a goal and the match ended with neither team scoring.

Wednesday, Houston play the New England Revolution at 6:30 pm CT.
