Final Score: Toronto 0, Colorado 0
Commerce City, CO (Sports Network) - The Colorado Rapids and Toronto FC played
to a 0-0 draw at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Sunday.
There was only one real chance in the first 45 minutes and it came right
before halftime for Toronto as Mikael Yourassowsky played a low ball through
the face of goal to Nick Soolsma at the back post. However, Rapids goalkeeper
Matt Pickens did well to get down and keep out the shot from eight yards.
Yourassowsky then carved out the best opportunity of the match in the 62nd
minute when he got down the left wing and carried the ball into the penalty
area before firing a left-footed shot on goal that Pickens tipped onto the
Colorado (4-3-4) struggled to create good scoring chances all match long, but
Anthony Wallace went close with a shot from 35 yards that narrowly missed the
upper-right corner of the net with just over 20 minutes to play.
The result leaves Toronto (2-4-6) with just one win from its last 10 games,
while the Rapids extend their unbeaten streak to five matches, although four
of those games have ended in draws.
