Dash, Thorns draw 1-1 in Houston

Crnogorčević, Simon score in the draw

The Houston Dash and Portland Thorns FC played to a 1-1 draw on Wednesday night at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas, to kick off Week 7 in the NWSL.

It’s the third draw in the last four games for the Thorns. The draw keeps the Dash are now unbeaten in their last two games. Both teams are in the middle of a stretch of three games in seven days.

Ana-Maria Crnogorčević scored her first NWSL goal in the 25th minute to put the Thorns up 1-0. Midge Purce sent a pass into the middle of the penalty box and Portland took advantage as the ball bounced around in the box. Christine Sinclair had a chance, but was knocked down. Crnogorčević picked up the loose ball and hit it past Dash goalkeeper Jane Campbell to put Portland up 1-0.

 

Kyah Simon scored her first goal as a member of the Houston Dash in the 57th minute to tie it 1-1. Veronica Latsko earned the assist on the goal.

 

The Thorns had a chance late to take the lead, but Dash defender Janine van Wyk cleared a shot off the line in the 81st minute. Meghan Klingenberg sent a corner kick to Lindsey Horan that Horan got on frame, but van Wyk kept it out.

 

Thorns goalkeeper Britt Eckerstrom also made a big save in the 66th minute to keep things tied. Eckerstrom, starting in place of Adrianna Franch (right knee meniscus surgery), made five saves in the match.

 

Ellie Carpenter made her NWSL debut in the 71st minute, the youngest player (18 years, 11 days) to ever play in an NWSL match.

Tobin Heath and Andressinha made their first starts of the season for the Thorns.

Kealia Ohai was rested by the Dash on the evening as Houston is in the middle of a stretch of three games in seven days. Allysha Chapman, acquired by the Dash in a trade announced Wednesday morning, did not see minutes in the game. Rachel Daly stayed on the forward line and Kristie Mewis was still in the midfield, after both were moved out of the backline last week.

The Thorns controlled possession 68.5% to 31.5%, according to Opta. The total shots category was much more even, with the Thorns taking that 11-10. The Dash had more shots on goal (6-4).

The Thorns are now 2-2-3 (9 points) and the Dash are 1-3-3 (6 points).

Both teams will be back in action on Saturday. The Thorns will host the Orlando Pride on Saturday afternoon in the NWSL Game of the Week on Lifetime. The Dash will visit the Red Stars on Saturday night.
