There is a fine line between frustrating and disappointing and the Houston Dynamo walked it on Tuesday night.

In their third game in seven days, Houston dominated their match with the Portland Timbers in almost every aspect except in one particular column: goals scored. The 0-0 draw left the Dynamo frustrated that their efforts did not yield the full share of the spoils, but their play kept the club far from disappointed.

It was a match without many fireworks as the Houston Dynamo and Portland Timbers played to a 0-0 draw at BBVA Compass Stadium on Tuesday night.

Both teams entered the night aiming to build momentum, with Houston looking to start a home winning streak and Portland hunting for their first road result since a 1-1 draw on March 17 against FC Dallas. With neither team able to emerge victorious, Portland got the type of result they were looking for, keeping the Dynamo at bay for a road point even if they were unable to muster a goal for the fourth straight match.
