Chivas USA 0 Columbus Crew 0
*Reporter Phil Collin has the game story.
Notable: The second half was better for Chivas USA than the first; they had two shots on target instead of one. The Crew had one shot on goal in the second 45 minutes for a total of two in the game.
“A shutout is good – that’s definitely one of the things we wanted to get out of this game,” said Chivas USA playmaker Nick LaBrocca. “That was No. 1. Obviously, to get it with the win (would have been better). But you’ve got to start somewhere, I guess. A shutout is huge, y’know? It’s something to definitely build on.”
Also notable: The Crew has never won at Home Depot Center – in seven attempts.
Programming note via Chivas USA Twitter:
“Reserve league game vs. Seattle Sounders postponed, and instead we’ll take on the LA Blues on Sunday morning at 11am at the HDC.”
