MLS Game Summary - Houston at Kansas City

(Saturday, April 12, 2008)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Houston 0, Kansas City 0

Kansas City, KS (Sports Network) - Houston Dynamo goalie Tony Caig made five saves to post a shutout in his first career start in Major League Soccer, but the two-time defending champions remained winless after a 0-0 draw with Kansas City on Saturday.

Caig replaced injured starter Pat Onstad in last week's 3-3 tie against Dallas and allowed all three goals. But the English-born goalie, who last played for Gretna in Scotland, redeemed himself at CommunityAmerica Ballpark.

The 6-foot Caig made three saves against Kansas City's Claudio Lopez, who is one of six designated players in the league.

Houston (0-1-2) has failed to score in two of its three games. The Dynamo lost to New England, 3-0, in their first game of the season.

Dwayne De Rosario and Brad Davis each had two shots on goal for Houston, but Wizards goalie Kevin Hartman matched Caig for his second shutout of the year.

Hartman, who also made five saves, shut out D.C. United in his first match of the season.

Kansas City (2-1-1) bounced back from its first loss of the season Wednesday to earn a point in a two-match week and stay level in points with the Chicago Fire, who beat San Jose 1-0 on Saturday, atop the Eastern Conference.

The scoreless draw was the first in MLS this season.

Houston visits Los Angeles on April 19 in search of its first win. Kansas City visits the Fire on April 20 in an early-season clash of the top teams in the East.
