FRISCO, TEXAS — Bill Hamid finished with three saves to help D.C. United to a scoreless draw against FC Dallas on Saturday night.

It was the second time this season that the two clubs played to a scoreless tie.

Hamid finished with a clean sheet for the second consecutive week as United improved to 5-5-8. FC Dallas (10-5-5) was shut out for the second straight week.

Dallas’ Jackson Goncalves nearly scored in the 87th minute with a sliding shot from the top of the goalie’s box, but his shot bounced off the crossbar.

In the 67th minute, FC Dallas had a chance to score on a Marvin Chavez breakaway but Chavez pulled his shot left of the post from 8 yards away.

FC Dallas also had scoring opportunities in the first half, including a 20-foot shot from Brek Shea in the 20th minute which forced a two-handed save by Hamid.

Dallas had 14 shots to four for United, a season low for D.C.

United’s best scoring chance came in the 18th minute after Andy Najar fired a shot from 12 yards away that forced a diving save by goalkeeper Kevin Hartman.
