FRISCO, Texas — Jimmy Maurer made six saves to help FC Dallas secure a point in a 0-0 tie with the Colorado Rapids in the season opener for both teams.
It’s the 12th consecutive year Dallas has earned at least a point in its season-opening contest with seven wins and five draws.
"I thought it was certainly a hard fought match that we certainly feel good about getting a point on the road. Dallas is an extremely hard place to play and they’re an extremely good team," head coach Robin Fraser said.
"They had a really good preseason, they had some great results, so we know the type of team they are and certainly feel good about coming in here and being able to get a draw.”
Dallas hasn’t lost an opener since 2009 when the Chicago Fire won 3-1.
Maurer’s last big save of the night came late in the game when he denied former teammate Michael Barrios. William Yarbrough made four saves for the Rapids.
