VANCOUVER, British Columbia | William Yarbrough had five saves for Colorado and Yohei Takaoka stopped two shots for Vancouver as the Rapids and Whitecaps played to a scoreless draw on Saturday night.

Colorado travels to play the LA Galaxy on Saturday. Vancouver will host Minnesota United on Saturday.
