Lightning forced the postponement of a scoreless match between FC Dallas and newcomer St. Louis City on Saturday night.

The inclement weather sent the two teams off the field in the 50th minute. The match will be resumed where it left off at a date to be determined.

Dallas (4-3-3) entered play with a 17-2-3 record in its last 20 home matches against expansion teams, including wins in 11 of the last 13. Nashville is the only expansion team to earn points in Frisco with a win and a draw in 2020.
