Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - The Colorado Rapids played to their third successive 0-0 draw on Saturday, finishing scoreless in their match with the Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium.
The Rapids put together a few good chances in the first half, but as the match wore on, the visitors dug in and held on for their third point of the season, extending the club's winless streak to 17 games dating back to last season.
Marcelo Sarvas was the most dangerous man in the first half for either side and he tested Houston goalkeeper Tyler Deric with a powerful shot at the near post that the netminder did well to keep out.
The former Galaxy midfielder had an even better opportunity in the 31st when he was released in on goal by Gabriel Torres, only for Deric to produce a fantastic save by tipping his shot over the crossbar from point-blank range.
Torres set up Sam Cronin for a good look at goal in the second half that Cronin sent just wide of the post, but it was Houston that really pushed for a goal in the final 20 minutes.
However, it never arrived for the Dynamo and the club had to settle for its second straight draw.
