rowdies, puerto rico draw 0-0

BAYAMON, Puerto Rico — The Rowdies and Puerto Rico played to a scoreless draw at Juan Ramon Loubriel Stadium on Saturday night.

It didn't take long for the Rowdies (7-8-8) to create their first dangerous chance of the night. After a feed into the box from midfielder PC, forward Tommy Heinemann was unable to get a clean shot off six minutes in.

Puerto Rico's best chance of the game came in the 32nd minute, when it was awarded a free kick inches outside the 18-yard box. Midfielder Paulo Mendes curled his free kick from the left flank off the crossbar.

The Rowdies pressed their attack in the final minutes, but Puerto Rico was able to block every attempt on goal.

The Rowdies' most dangerous chance came in the third minute of second-half stoppage time. Forward Georgi Hristov's shot was on target, but goalkeeper Trevor Spangenberg made a diving save to send the ball out for a corner kick.
