Rachel Daly and Nichelle Prince scored second half goals as the Houston Dash came from behind to beat FC Kansas City 2-1 on Sunday evening in front of a crowd of 1,703 fans at Children’s Mercy Victory Field in Kansas City, Missouri.

The Dash played the game’s final 28 minutes with a player advantage after FC Kansas City’s Lo’eau LaBonta drew her second yellow card and was ejected in the 62nd minute. LaBonta’s foul came as she tried to regain possession of the ball near midfield and fouled Dash midfielder Andressa. It was a foul on Andressa that also earned LaBonta her first yellow card in the 35th minute.

Following the red card, Houston scored off the ensuing free kick as Amber Brooks sent a long ball from her defensive side of the field into the box. The ball dropped in front of Prince, who collected it and slotted it past FC Kansas City goalkeeper Nicole Barnhart to give the Dash the 2-1 lead.

It was Prince’s second career goal. She scored her first two weeks ago in Houston’s 4-2 loss to the Orlando Pride.

FC Kansas City forward Shea Groom opened the scoring in first half stoppage time, receiving a pass about seven yards in front of goal from rookie defender Christina Gibbons, turning and quickly firing a left-footed shot past Dash goalkeeper Jane Campbell. The goal was Groom’s first of the season and first score since September 7, 2016. She led the team in scoring in 2016 with six goals.

Houston equalized in the 55th minute on Daly’s third goal of the year. Dash forward Carli Lloyd sent a through ball and found Daly in behind Kansas City defender Becky Sauerbrunn on the left side of the field. Daly’s initial shot was saved by Barnhart but the rebound fell right back to Daly, who knocked the ball into the open net.

FC Kansas City had a golden opportunity to tie the match in the 69th minute but were denied by Campbell. Forward Brittany Ratcliffe dribbled in between a group of Houston defenders and unleashed a quick right-footed shot that rose over Campbell’s head. But the rookie goalkeeper jumped and tipped the ball up and into the crossbar. The rebound bounced safely to Brooks, who was able to play it out of the back and away from danger.

FC Kansas City had a free kick near midfield deep into second half stoppage time but the Dash defense was able to clear away the long effort from Sauerbrunn.

The Dash moved into 7th place with the win. They are now 4-7-1 with 13 points and have not lost in their last three games.

FC Kansas City fell to 3-5-4 (13 points) with the loss.
