Crystal Palace Baltimore gets 1st point of season in 0-0 draw

Visiting Crystal Palace Baltimore held the conference-leading Vancouver Whitecaps to a goalless draw Saturday to earn their first point of the United States Soccer Federation Division-2 Pro League season. Evan Bush claimed the shutout, the team's first in four contests this season. There was concern for both clubs after 25 minutes when former Whitecap Shaun Pejic clashed heads with current Whitecap Greg Janicki. Both players eventually left the field bloodied but able to walk under their own power. Janicki returned 10 minutes later, sporting heavy white bandaging covering several stitches. Palace continues its West Coast road swing with a game in Portland at 10 p.m Thursday.
