Galaxy, Wizards play scoreless tie

Apr 25, 2010 - 2:49 AM KANSAS CITY, Kan.(AP) -- Kansas City shut down Los Angeles' Edson Buddle for the first time this season, but Kei Kamara's goal-line blunder meant the Wizards had to settle for a scoreless tie with the unbeaten Galaxy on Saturday night.

Buddle had seven goals in the first four games for Los Angeles (4-0-1), but got off only one shot on goal against the Wizards.

Wizards keeper Jimmy Nielsen had five saves and still hasn't conceded a goal at CommunityAmerica Ballpark, and Donovan Ricketts made six stops for the Galaxy for his fourth shutout in five games. In Los Angeles' first four matches, Ricketts had a total of five saves.

Kansas City (2-1-1) remained unbeaten in three home matches, but missed a point-blank chance early on. Kamara found himself alone in front of Los Angeles' goalmouth in the 16th minute, but slipped on the wet grass and whiffed on the shot. When he fell, his arm knocked the ball into the net and he was called for a handball.
