Dynamo, Timbers play to scoreless draw

Tuesday night's game between the Houston Dynamo and Portland Timbers will be memorable for it being the first night game at BBVA Compass Stadium. But that's about it. 

The two clubs combined for few chances in a sluggish 0-0 draw in front of a sellout crowd at MLS' newest stadium. Portland goalkeeper Troy Perkins came up big on a couple of occasions in the second half to preserve the road point, stuffing Luiz Camargo and Calen Carr on similar chances inside the area as part of his seven-save outing.

The match was also the first between the two clubs since Designated Player Kris Boyd spurned Houston's offer to join Portland this offseason. Boyd was a non-factor Tuesday, though, failing to score for the fourth straight game after getting little service his way and getting bottled up by centerbacks Geoff Cameron and Bobby Boswell.

Here are highlights from the match:
