FC Dallas and Chivas USA Battle To A Scoreless Draw

USA TODAY Sports

Chances were there but none could find the back of the net for FC Dallas.

Fans came to see fireworks tonight in Frisco but they were hoping for more than just the planned fireworks after the game. FC Dallas and Chivas USA battled to a scoreless draw in front of the third largest home crowd for a regular season match at FC Dallas Stadium.

The two sides traded plenty of chances including a couple late in the match where both keepers had to come up big.

Dallas had their moments in the first half. The few times that Dallas was able to work the ball wide to Jackson or Kenny Cooper, good things happened. Midway through the first half on a counter attack lead by David Ferreira, the ball got worked wide to Jackson who then chipped it into the box for Cooper. The veteran's header sailed just wide unfortunately.

Dallas also had chances on set pieces in the first half. One of Michel's first free kicks on the evening was a beauty, as it curled over the Chivas wall to only hit the post and go out.

Chivas held their own though and late in the first half they nearly converted on a corner kick. Chivas opted for a short corner and it nearly paid off as Eric Avila's pass nearly found the feet of Jose Correa.

The game turned into a physical battle in the second half with both teams trading yellow cards.

Dallas pushed for a late winner in the final minutes of the match with Perez and Ferreira getting chances on keeper Dan Kennedy. But each time the game remained scoreless.

Dallas will return to action on Sunday as they travel to LA to face the Galaxy.
