Dallas, Montreal extend winless streaks

MONTREAL -- The winless streaks dragged on for the Montreal Impact and FC Dallas, as the teams played to a scoreless draw on Saturday night.

Montreal (9-5-5) has gone five games without a victory, while Dallas (8-5-8) has not won since May 25 and is winless in seven -- eight if a U.S. Open Cup game is counted.

The Impact drew their first sellout of the season of 20,801, a record at Saputo Stadium, where some space was added this year. Despite the fans' roars, they saw the Impact shut out at home for the first time this season.

Montreal controlled the ball and created chance after chance, but without absent scoring leader Marco Di Vaio, never connected for a goal.

"We said we needed to do everything and a little more to win this game, and I think that little more was the final runs, the final shots," said Impact defender Jeb Brovsky. "Justin (Mapp) was making some great crosses and we didn't have anyone making that run with conviction in the box."

Brovsky's blast was stopped by Raul Fernandez in the 78th minute, and Daniele Paponi just missed Sanna Nyassi's pass before both were substituted late in the game.

It was a first 0-0 draw of the year for the Impact and a second in four games for Dallas.

Di Vaio missed the game to attend to a family matter in Italy. His spot was taken by Nyassi, who paired with Paponi up front.

"He leads us in goals and we needed a goal," Mapp said. "We'd like to think he would have helped us in that department, but guys fought hard without him. Hopefully, we'll have him back next week."

Dallas was without suspended forward Fabian Castillo, while forward Blas Perez is off for national team duty with Panama.
