FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Jimmy Maurer made six saves to help FC Dallas secure a point in a 0-0 tie with the Colorado Rapids in the season opener for both teams.

It’s the 12th consecutive year Dallas has earned at least a point in its season-opening contest with seven wins and five draws. Dallas hasn’t lost an opener since 2009 when the Chicago Fire won 3-1.

Maurer’s last big save of the night came late in the game when he denied former teammate Michael Barrios. William Yarbrough made four saves for the Rapids.
