  • When Sounders FC and FC Dallas did not record a single shot on target in their scoreless draw Saturday, it marked the first time in MLS history (in 4,059 games all-time) that a game ended with zero shots on goal.
  • The Dynamo recorded their second shutout in four games – and were shut out for the second time in four games – in their scoreless result with Colorado on Saturday at BBVA Compass Stadium. Neither the Dynamo nor their opponents have scored more than one goal in any of the four Houston games this season.
