             === 'Quakes, Rapids finish scoreless at Buck Shaw ===
 
 Santa  Clara,  CA (SportsNetwork.com)  -  The  Colorado  Rapids and  San  Jose
 Earthquakes battled to a scoreless draw on Wednesday at Buck Shaw Stadium.
 
 Coming  off a 3-2 loss to Vancouver Whitecaps FC at BC Place last weekend, San
 Jose was desperate to give its season the kick start it desperately needs.
 
 The  home  side had  the better of  the play  in the first  half and the first
 quality chance fell to Alan Gordon in the opening 15 minutes as he galloped in
 behind the Colorado defense, but sliced his strike wide of the far post.
 
 The  'Quakes  created another  fantastic opportunity on  the half-hour mark as
 Chris  Wondolowski got  a  clean header  on  goal from  inside  the area,  but
 Colorado goalkeeper Clint Irwin parried it away with a diving save.
 
 Colorado  sat a little  further deep inside its half of the field and had only
 44  percent of  possession. The visitors finished with four strikes on target,
 but never really troubled San Jose goalkeeper Jon Busch.
 
 San  Jose  continued to  push for  the winner on  home turf  and had one final
 opportunity  as the clock approached stoppage time when Wondolowski worked his
 way  into the penalty  area and had a strike, but the ball smacked off the far
 post and stayed out as the clubs settled for a point apiece.
