Juan Luis Anangono comes close, but Fire settle for 0-0 tie with Rapids
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. - Chicago's Juan Luis Anangono pushed a header wide in the 76th minute and the Fire settled for a 0-0 tie with the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday night.
Anangono broke free of Colorado defender Shane O'Neill and goalkeeper John Berner couldn't recover in time to defend his goal. But with a wide open net. Anangono's header went just outside the left post.
"I thought it was a scrappy game, Chicago coach Frank Yallop said. "We had a great chance with Juan. All in all really happy with the point."
Chicago (2-3-8) had its MLS-leading eighth tie.
Dillon Serna hit the crossbar in the final seconds of added time for Colorado (6-4-4).
"I'd like three points. I'd like $100 million. I'd like a lot of things," Colorado coach Pablo Mastroeni said. "The most important thing from this is the effort we had and the attitude."
The Rapids had their two-game winning streak snapped. They have three scoreless ties.
"We had a couple of good chances, and one very good chance in the first half," Colorado defenceman Drew Moor said. "Other than that I didn't think we had that killer instinct. We didn't score."
