Two matches yielded no goals as MLS kicked off its weekend slate with a Friday night double header.

Defenses came out on top in MLS as the reigning champion Seattle Sounders and Atlanta United played out a goalless draw, while Toronto FC and Sporting Kansas City were scoreless.

Neither Seattle nor Atlanta could find a winner in Friday's 0-0 draw at CenturyLink Field, despite United States international Clint Dempsey hitting the crossbar for the Sounders in the second half.
