D.C., Van­cou­ver bat­tle to score­less draw

The Washington Times Daily - - Sports -

VAN­COU­VER, BRI­TISH COLUMBIA | Joe Can­non made three out­stand­ing sec­ond-half saves, and the un­beaten Van­cou­ver White­caps played a score­less draw against D.C. United on Satur­day night.

Can­non se­cured Van­cou­ver’s third con­sec­u­tive shutout by foil­ing Cana­dian star Dwayne De Rosario in the 84th minute, mak­ing a leg save on a shot from close range.

Can­non has recorded two of the three shutouts. He pulled him­self out of last week­end’s 1-0 win at Chivas USA be­cause of a quadri­ceps in­jury, and the vic­tory went to backup Brad Knighton.

D.C. went with backup Joe Wil­lis be­cause No. 1 Bill Hamid is play­ing for the U.S. un­der-23 team at the CONCACAF Olympic qual­i­fy­ing tour­na­ment.
