SANDY, Utah (AP) - Clint Irwin recorded his sixth shutout of the season and Colorado tied Real Salt Lake 0-0 on Sunday to snap the Rapids’ three-game losing streak in the Rocky Mountain Cup.

Irwin and RSL goalkeeper Nick Rimando are tied for second in the MLS with six clean sheets.

Colorado (2-4-8) and Real Salt Lake (4-5-6) snapped two-game losing streaks.

Both team had good scoring chances in the closing minutes. Colorado’s Dillon Powers missed a penalty shot in the 89th minute. He stalled his approach and Rimando dove the wrong way, but his shot rolled wide. On the final play of the game, RSL’s Javier Morales gathered a loose ball near the penalty spot, but his shot deflected just wide.

Rimando has faced five penalty kicks this season and has only conceded two goals.

EARTHQUAKES 0, FC DALLAS 0, TIE

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - San Jose overcame two red cards to tie 10-man FC Dallas.

The Earthquakes played a man down for the majority of the second half, getting straight red cards in the 53rd and 87th minutes. FC Dallas was reduced to 10 men in the 75th.

San Jose (5-5-4) is winless in its last there matches. FC Dallas (6-4-4) was held scoreless for the fifth time this season.

San Jose’s Mark Sherrod was whistled for the first red card. He was attempting to jump over Dan Kennedy, who was on the ground after securing a cross, and Sherrod’s foot contacted the goalkeeper’s head.

San Jose’s second red card came after J.J. Koval’s studs-up challenge of Ryan Hollingshead.

FC Dallas’ Je-Vaughn Watson was sent off after a studs-up challenge. On San Jose’s ensuing free kick, Chris Wondolowski sailed a header over the crossbar. Wondolowski missed another header in the 84th.
