Shuttleworth helps Fire pick up a point
CINCINNATI — Bobby Shuttleworth made three saves, and the Fire played FC Cincinnati to a 0-0 draw Wednesday night.
The Fire’s Ignacio Aliseda had an apparent goal waved off midway through the second half because of a handball on Boris Sekulic.
FC Cincinnati (2-4-3), which lost to the Fire (2-5-2) 3-0 on Aug. 25, is winless in its last four games with three scoreless draws.
Shuttleworth deflected Maikel van der Werff’s header in the first minute of the first half, then dove to his left to stop Adrien Regattin’s shot from distance in the 28th minute.
The teams played to a scoreless tie in the only other meeting at Cincinnati’s Nippert Stadium last September.
Fire forward Fabian Herbers heads the ball toward goal Wednesday night in Cincinnati.
