Seattle Reign FC secured second place in the standings after defeating the Houston Dash 3-1 in the Week 15 finale. Jodie Taylor, Megan Rapinoe and Allie Long scored for the Reign, while Amber Books scored for the Dash.

Reign FC are now 7-3-5 on the year with 26 points and the Dash are in seventh place at 4-5-5 and 17 points.

Defender Amber Brooks scored the game’s opening goal in the 12th minute. The defender is second in the league in interceptions, but found herself in a scoring opportunity when she finished with her head off of a Sofia Huerta corner kick. In addition to scoring her first goal of the season, Brooks also finished the game stellar defensively, making five tackles, nine clearances, six interceptions and one block.

The home team equalized before the half when Rapinoe took a quick throw in transition and found Taylor running at the Dash backline. Taylor chipped Campbell to make it all even at the 37th minute.

At the first 45 the Reign had the better of the possession at 65.5% to the Dash’s 34.5%.

The second half kicked off with the Reign dictating the play. Rumi Utsugi and Elizabeth Addo both added to the attack along with Pinoe and Taylor continuing to push for the go-ahead goal. In the 55th minute Addo drew a foul in the penalty area. Rapine took the penalty kick and buried it to make it 2-1 Seattle and score her sixth goal of the season.

The Reign sealed the deal in the 85th minute when Rapinoe and midfielder Allie Long combined for a give-and-go. Long played Rapinoe and Rapinoe found Long again in behind the Dash backline. Long finished her third goal of the season to make it 3-1 and Rapinoe picked up her second assist of the night (fourth of the season). Rapinoe finished the game with three shots (two on target) and five key passes on the night. She also had a game-high 90 touches. 

Dash goalkeeper Jane Campbell earned four saves on the night, and Reign FC goalkeeper Lydia Williams got the win in net with three saves.

The Reign will next play Wednesday in a Week 16 clash vs. Utah Royals FC and the Dash will also play midweek when they host the Orlando Pride.
