MLS Game Summary - Houston at Colorado|
(Sunday, July 3, 2011)
From The Sports Network
Final Score: Houston 0, Colorado 0
Commerce City, CO (Sports Network) - The Colorado Rapids created most of the
chances but Tally Hall made sure that the Houston Dynamo left Dick's Sporting
Goods Park on Sunday with a point as the two sides played to a 0-0 draw.
Houston's attack was largely ineffective on Sunday, which is the main reason
why the club remains winless in nine away matches this season. However, the
Dynamo was still able to leave with a point thanks to some strong goalkeeping
from Hall, especially in the final 10 minutes of the match.
The Rapids were unfortunate in the ninth minute not to take the lead when
Brian Mullan's right-wing cross found Jamie Smith at the back post. He then
headed the ball past Hall but off the left upright.
After that Hall made sure he wouldn't be beaten again as he needed to make a
diving stop five minutes before halftime to keep out a long-range free kick
The Dynamo began to gain more possession as the second half wore on, but it
was the Rapids who were the more dangerous side over the final 10 minutes.
Drew Moor had a close-range header tipped over the crossbar by Hall in the
80th minute before substitute Quincy Amarikwa was denied a few minutes later
by the Houston keeper.
Dominic Kinnear's team has now won just one of its last 11 games, but will be
happy with the result.
After the final whistle, Amarikwa showed the frustration of the Colorado
team as he received a red card for confronting the referee.
