Horan scores twice as Thorns beat Dash 3-1

Horan now has nine goals this season

Lindsey Horan scored twice as Portland Thorns FC beat the Houston Dash 3-1 on Sunday night at Providence Park to close out Week 16 in the NWSL. Horan is now tied with Chicago Red Stars forward Sam Kerr for the league-lead with nine goals.

The win moves the fifth-place Thorns (7-5-5, 26 points) to two points back of the Pride and Red Stars, who are tied on 28 points and sitting in the final two playoff positions. Portland also has a game in hand over those two teams.

The seventh-place Dash drop to 5-7-5 with 20 points and they missed out on an opportunity to jump into sixth place in the standings with a win.

Horan scored her first goal in the 16th minute — heading home an inch-perfect cross from Emily Sonnett that dropped right over the penalty spot. Just ten minutes earlier, Dash goalkeeper Jane Campbell had denied a header attempt from Horan, but this time the Thorns midfielder would get the goal.

Horan made it 2-0 in the 31st minute with her ninth goal of the season. Tobin Heath served a free kick into the box. Ana-Maria Crnogorčević got her head on it, pushing it on frame. Campbell jumped to make a play, but couldn’t, and the ball bounced off the crossbar and straight down. Horan was there for the Thorns to tap it over the line. Crnogorčević won the free kick after being fouled by Lindsay Agnew outside the box.

The Dash pulled a goal back in the 37th minute when Kealia Ohai pushed a loose ball over the line after Thorns goalkeeper Adrianna Franch gave up a rebound on a Taylor Comeau shot.

The Dash thought they’d earned a penalty kick a few minutes later, but did not get the call from referee Eric Tattersall. Dash forward Rachel Daly pressured Franch, deflecting Franch’s attempted clearance in the box. As the loose ball bounced in the box, Franch appeared to hold Daly back as they both tried to make a play on the ball — but no whistle was blown and play continued.

Crnogorčević made it 3-1 in the 48th minute on an assist from Hayley Raso.

Raso found the back of the net in the 69th minute on a header, but the goal was called back after a moment due to an offside call on the play. It was unclear from replays whether Raso was offside when Horan got her head on the ball in the box.

The Thorns will next face Sky Blue FC on Saturday in New Jersey. The Dash will visit the Spirit on Saturday night.
