VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) The Vancouver Whitecaps and Montreal Impact tied 0-0 on Wednesday night in the first Major League Soccer game following the World Cup break.

Vancouver (5-2-7) pushed its unbeaten streak to eight, while Montreal (2-7-5) remained winless on the road.

Vancouver striker Darren Mattocks fired a shot wide of the goal in the 72nd minute, and Montreal midfielder Maxim Tissot hit the crossbar behind moments later.

Whitecaps defender Carlyle Mitchell forced a save from goalkeeper Troy Perkins off a corner five minutes later, and Jordan Harvey's follow up hit the crossbar. In the 83rd, Montreal striker Jack McInerney's header went off the post following a free kick.
