Recap: Colorado vs. Chicago

The Sports NetworkJune 4, 2014 

Commerce City, CO ( - The Chicago Fire and Colorado Rapids played out a 0-0 draw at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Wednesday in a match that saw few chances and failed to really come to life.

Rapids goalkeeper John Berner didn't need to make a save in the game, while Chicago netminder Sean Johnson was a bit busier but certainly not overworked.

Johnson produced the best save of the match in the first half when he denied a first-time shot from Colorado's Charles Eloundou at full stretch, tipping the ball past the post.

Danny Mwanga then spurned a good chance for the Rapids when he fired over the net from close range a few minutes later.

Chicago did carve out a few opportunities in the second half as Lovel Palmer's diving header skipped past the post and Juan Luis Anangono came within inches of the woodwork with a looping headed effort.

But in the end a point was about right for both sides as neither was able to conjure up any real creativity to separate itself.
