Synchros will always rub, that is their function .

From your description, I assume your tried a quick upshift from 1st to 2nd at 6000RPM. If you are saying that you "missed the shift" it is either that you heard crunching noises when you engaged 2nd gear or that the 2nd gear simply did not go in. In either case, you probably only did very minor damage to the dog teeth (no pun intended ). Nothing to worry about. Just don't keep doing it, as in the long run it will damage the transmission.
