Toronto FC takes 35 shots in 0-0 tie against DC United

The Associated Press

TORONTO (AP) -- Toronto FC launched a club-record 35 shots in a scoreless tie against D.C. United on Wednesday night.

With star striker Jozy Altidore sidelined by a heel injury, Toronto (5-4-2) was unable to find the right final touch. It set an MLS record for most shots in a game without scoring.

Jordan Hamilton, subbing for Altidore, had nine shots and hit the crossbar. Spanish playmaker Alejandro Pozuelo had seven shots, 134 touches - the most by a D.C. player was 56 - and was credited with creating 11 chances.

D.C. United (7-3-3) defended tenaciously as Toronto finished with the third-largest shot total in MLS history - and the most seen in a league game since 1998.

D.C. goalkeeper Bill Hamid posted his seventh shutout of the season.
