The Chicago Red Stars beat the Houston Dash 3-0 on a cold and snowy Wednesday night at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Illinois.

With the win, the Red Stars are now 2-1-1. The loss is the first of the season for the Dash, who fell to 0-1-2 after the result.

The Red Stars got a 1-0 lead in the 7th minute after an own goal by Houston Dash defender Kristie Mewis. Red Stars left back Sarah Gorden chased down a leading pass from Lauren Kaskie and sped into the penalty box. She served a cross around Dash defender Rachel Daly and across the face of goal. Mewis tried to make a play on it, but hit it past goalkeeper Jane Campbell and into her own net.

 

The Red Stars doubled the lead in the 11th minute when Kaskie scored her first NWSL goal, in her fourth career start. Chicago pounced on a weak clearance from Campbell and quickly got the ball back into the penalty area. Gorden passed to Sofia Huerta, whose shot appeared to go off the hand of a Dash defender before being saved by Campbell. Kaskie quickly pounced on the rebound and scored to make it 2-0.

Kaskie was drafted by the Courage with the second-to-last pick in the 2017 NWSL College Draft. She appeared in seven games for Chicago last season and Wednesday night was her second appearance of this season.

 

 

Huerta scored the game’s final goal in the 74th, heading home a cross from Danielle Colaprico to make it 3-0.

 

Huerta finished the game with a flurry as the Red Stars pushed for another goal. In the 73rd minute, shortly before she finally scored, she took a shot from distance that forced a strong save from Campbell. Then in the 79th minute, she forced Campbell to tip her shot over the bar.

For the second straight game, the Dash did not record a shot on goal, according to Opta.

Mewis had one of the best chances of the night for the Dash in the 44th minute but her cross hit off the crossbar.

In the 53rd minute, Dash forward Savannah Jordan‘s pass slipped dangerously past Naeher but no one from Houston could get onto the other end to tap it in and it was cleared away by Taylor Comeau.

In the 24th minute, Thembi Kgatlana took a bending shot that appeared to be going wide, but Naeher parried it away for a corner to be safe. She punched away the ensuing corner as well.

Both teams will be in action again this weekend. The Red Stars will play host to Sky Blue FC on Saturday night and the Dash will visit the Orlando Pride on Sunday.
