HOUSTON(AP) -- Houston's Pat Onstad made two saves, Columbus'
William Hesmer made one, and the Dynamo and Crew played to a
scoreless tie Saturday at Robertson Stadium.
Columbus (8-2-4, 28 points) extended its unbeaten streak to
three games but saw its winning streak end at two. The Crew
stayed atop the Eastern Conference, keeping their two-point lead
over New York, while Houston (5-7-4, 19 points) extended its
unbeaten streak to three games -- all ties.
Guillermo Barros Schelotto had an opportunity to give Columbus
the lead in the 48th minute, but his header from 10 yards out
went high. Adam Moffat had a breakaway in second-half stoppage
time, but Onstad came off his line and made a sliding kick to
knock the ball out of bounds.
Brian Ching had Houston's best chance to score in the 24th
minute, but after getting a nice cross from the right from Danny
Cruz, Ching missed a wide-open net from inside the 6-yard box
wide left. Cam Weaver nearly gave Houston the lead in the 80th
minute, but his shot from the upper right box missed the far
post by inches and went out.
