Scoreless draw gives DC point from LA
The Los Angeles Galaxy played a scoreless draw with D.C. United on Friday night to extend their unbeaten streak to seven games and their shutout string to four matches and 411 minutes.
The Galaxy (8-2-6) played without scoring star Landon Donovan, away on U.S. national team duty.
D.C. United (4-4-4) is 2-0-3 in its last five games.
Charlie Davies nearly put United ahead in the 81st minute. Davies made his way behind the defense and dribbled around goalkeeper Josh Saunders, but an off-balance shot at an open net soared wide right.
Galaxy goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts and D.C. defender Dejan Jakovic also were missing because of international obligations.
