Sky Blue FC forward Sam Kerr scored a goal, tallied an assist and earned a penalty kick to lead Sky Blue to a 3-1 road win over the Houston Dash at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Midfielder Sarah Killion opened the scoring in the 33rd minute with her third penalty kick of the season. The goal was her fourth of the year, tied for the league lead. Kerr earned the penalty kick after taking a kick to the face in the box.

In the 53rd minute, Kerr assisted on midfielder Leah Galton‘s goal to make it 2-0.

Dash defender Poliana‘s goal in the 76th minute pulled Houston to within one, but Kerr put an exclamation point on her performance in the 87th minute, scoring her first goal of the 2017 season.

Through five weeks, Sky Blue FC is 2-2-1, while Houston sits at 2-3-0.
