Ubogagu scores as the Pride beat the Dash 1-0

It's the first win of the season for Orlando

The Orlando Pride won their first game of the season on Sunday night, 1-0 over the Houston Dash at Orlando City Stadium to close out Week 4 in the NWSL.

The Pride are now 1-2-1 and in sixth place in the league. With the loss, the Dash fell to 0-2-2 and eighth place. The Dash are one of three teams still in search of their first win this season.

Orlando’s goal came courtesy of Chioma Ubogagu in the 65th minute. After an Amber Brooks foul on Sydney Leroux set up the free kick, Pride midfielder Christine Nairn served a ball into the box that Ubogagu rose up to head home for her second goal of the season.

 

 

Ubogagu also scored Orlando’s only goal last week in Portland. She leads the Pride with two goals this season, both on assists from Nairn.

The Pride had a few chances to add to their lead, but were stopped by Dash goalkeeper Jane Campbell.

In the seventh minute, Leroux pounced on a back pass and forced a quick save from Campbell. In the 82nd minute, an Orlando corner kick resulted in a shot on goal from Ali Krieger, but Campbell pushed the shot wide.

 

 

Leroux also hit the post with a shot in the 83rd minute.

Kealia Ohai made her 2018 season debut in the 59th minute — on the same field where she tore her ACL last June. She played the final 31 minutes and was able to take one shot.

 

Houston Dash forward Savannah Jordan had a look on goal in the 24th minute, forcing Pride goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris to make a save to her left as Jordan tried to sneak it in at the near post.

The Dash had a corner kick late and a chance to steal a point deep into second half stoppage time, but Brooks hit her header just up and over the crossbar.

It’s the first clean sheet of the season for Harris, who made two saves in the game. The Dash have not scored since the 38th minute of Week 1.

The Pride controlled possession in the game, according to Opta, 57.7% to 42.3%. They also outshot the Dash 14-10 and 3-2 in shots on goal.

The Pride will likely welcome back five players next week when they face Seattle Reign FC as Marta, Monica, Poliana, Alanna Kennedy and Emily van Egmond all return from international duty.

The Dash will next face the North Carolina Courage, at home on Saturday afternoon in the NWSL Game of the Week on Lifetime. Australian forward Kyah Simon should join the Dash ahead of that game.
