On a sweltering night in the midwest, goalkeepers Tally Hall and Jimmy Nielsen combined to keep clean sheets in a defensive stalemate at Livestrong Sporting Park.
Hall made four saves while Nielsen made two saves as the Houston Dynamo earned a valuable road point in a scoreless draw against the Kansas City Wizards.
Sporting KC had a significant advantage in shots (17-7) and shots on goal (4-2), but couldn't beat Hall, who recorded his second shutout of the week. The Dynamo nearly snatched all three points late but rookie Brian Ownby was denied by Nielsen.
Here are the match highlights:
