The Houston Dash had an offensive outburst on Saturday night, besting Sky Blue FC 3-2 for their first win of the season in front of a crowd of 2,065 at Yurcak Field in Piscataway, New Jersey. The Dash improved to 1-3-2 (5 points) and Sky Blue FC fell to 0-3-1 (1 point).

Katie Johnson scored a brace for Sky Blue FC, but it wasn’t enough for them to get their first three points of the year.

After Johnson leveled the match at 2-2 in the 73rd minute, the Dash hit the game-winner six minutes later. Second-half subs Veronica Latsko and Thembi Kgatlana combined to put the Dash up 3-2 with Latsko scoring the first goal of her NWSL career.

 

The Dash moved Rachel Daly and Kristie Mewis up into the attack on the evening, after the pair played as outside backs for the first five games of the season. It paid off as Daly was involved in several chances, and scored her first goal of the season in the 59th minute.

 

 

Johnson started for Sky Blue FC in the game, and earned the first brace of her career. Both of her goals tied the match. First in the 57th minute, shortly before Daly put the Dash ahead. Then Johnson leveled it again with a header goal in the 73rd minute.

The Dash hadn’t scored since Week 1, but found an offensive groove in Week 6. Sky Blue controlled possession 58.5% to 41.5%, but the Dash outshot Sky Blue 17-11 and 6-3 in shots on goal.

Houston will next host Portland Thorns FC on Wednesday night. Sky Blue FC will visit Seattle Reign FC on Saturday night.
