FOXBOROROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Revolution and Sporting KC played to a scoreless tie Saturday.

It was the second straight shutout match for both clubs. New England (1-1-1) is scoreless through 208 minutes, and Sporting KC (1-1-2) is scoreless in 203 minutes.

Sporting KC goalie Jimmy Nielsen didn't have to make a save en route to his second shutout of the season, while New England's Matt Reis stopped five shots in posting his second shutout.

Sporting KC, 0-2-3 in its meetings with New England, had its best scoring chance in the 19th minute when C.J. Sapong banged a ball off of the crossbar out of a goalmouth scramble.

During the second half, Sporting KC had two other good chances -- a header by Ike Opara off of a corner kick in the 49th minute that was stopped by Reis, and a header by Sapong, off of another corner kick in the 83rd.

New England totalled six corner kicks, five during the first half of play, all off the toe of Lee Nguyen, but none created a shot. The Revolution's best opportunity came in the 78th minute on Juan Toja's direct kick, but the ball sailed over the crossbar.
