Dash beat Sky Blue FC 6-1

Six different players scored for the Dash in the win

The Houston Dash beat Sky Blue FC 6-1 on Saturday night at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas. The Dash got goals from six different players in the win.

Despite the positive result, the Dash were eliminated from playoff contention when the Red Stars beat the Pride on Saturday night. The Dash can’t pass the Red Stars and Utah Royals FC, the only two teams still in the playoff hunt, and they don’t hold the tiebreakers they would need to advance to the postseason either.

Still, the win comes in a strong season for the Dash, who are 9-9-5 with 32 points, all franchise bests with one game remaining. They now have 35 goals this season, also a franchise best.

Sky Blue FC still remain in search of their first win of the season, and drop to 0-16-5 with the result.

The Dash scored the first goal of the game in the 22nd minute. Linda Motlhalo scored her first NWSL goal, the fourth-youngest player in NWSL history to score.

The match went into halftime with Houston up 1-0, but the Dash scored five in the second half.

Veronica Latskoย scored in the 48th minute on an assist from Sofia Huerta. It’s Latsko’s fourth goal of the season.

Sky Blue FC then got a goal from Imani Dorsey a few minutes later, also her fourth of the season.

In the 65th minute, Huerta scored from a tight angle on an assist from Kealia Ohai. Huerta now has eight goals and six assists on the year. Ohai has four assists.

Huerta then earned a penalty just two minutes later after being taken down in the box by Sky Blue defender Madison Tiernan. Rachel Daly buried it to make it 4-1. Daly has 10 goals in 2018, fourth in the NWSL.

Then Haley Hanson scored her first NWSL goal in the 88th minute, a deft flick on a Kyah Simon corner kick. It’s Hanson’s first professional goal.

The Dash made it 6-1 in the 90th minute courtesy of Thembi Kgatlana‘s second goal of the year.

The Dash will play their final game of the season on September 8 on the road vs. the North Carolina Courage. Sky Blue FC have three games remaining and will next be in action on September 1 vs. the Washington Spirit.
