Dynamo battles to draw at home

Home field continues to be a help for the Dayton Dynamo, although not quite as much Friday night . The local kickers settle for a scoreless draw against Rochester on a hot, steamy night on the turf at CJ’s Roger Glass stadium.

Dayton dominated play all night long against the visitors from New York. The Dynamo controlled the ball 66% of the game and had numerous chances to score.

Dayton came up empty on 14 corner kicks on the night and they were even turned away on a penalty kick. Chris Dupont’s went for the left corner, but the PK bounced off the goal post in what was the best chance the home team had to score.

Despite the 0-0 draw, the Dynamo remains unbeaten at home and on top of their division in the National Premeir Soccer League with 17 points.

Dayton is back home next Thursday night in a “friendly” against the Columbus Crew U23 team. That match kicks off at 7pm at Roger Glass stadium.
