Shea Groom’s 83rd minute goal snapped a nine game winless streak for FC Kansas City as they beat the Houston Dash 1-0 at BBVA Compass Stadium with 4,352 in attendance.

Dash forward Carli Lloyd injured her left ankle in the 25th when she landed awkwardly after going up for a header in the box. She walked off the field under her power, but was subbed out in the 35th minute and replaced by Cari Roccaro.

It’s the first win for FC Kansas City since a 3-2 win over the Washington Spirit on May 27. For the Dash, it’s their second straight loss after going on a six-game unbeaten streak.

FC Kansas City goalkeeper Nicole Barnhart earned her 36th career regular season shutout to extended her all-time lead. She made six saves in the match, including a 75th minute kick save to stop a Rachel Daly breakaway. Andressinha threaded a nice long pass through the Kansas City defense, but Barnhart came off her line and made a sliding save on Daly’s attempt to send a right-footed shot to the far post.

Kansas City would get the game’s only goal just seven minutes later when Groom headed in a cross from Becky Sauerbrunn to make it 1-0. Sauerbrunn dribbled down the left flank and sent a high-cross into the box where Groom was able to out jump Camille Levin and send a header past Dash goalkeeper Jane Campbell for her second goal of the season.

The Blues thought they had earned a penalty kick in the 68th minute when Sydney Leroux was fouled in the area, but after making an initial signal for the penalty, referee Robi Hullner ruled that Leroux had been offside when the ball was played into the box.

The loss keeps the Dash on 20 points, six points behind the Pride for the fourth and final playoff spot. They will next play on Wednesday night in Boston before traveling out to Portland for meeting with the Thorns on Saturday night.

“It’s a big blow that we lost Carli. Obviously, she’s such a big character on our team,” Daly said after the game. “Brings such a big presence, so for us that was a huge blow. But we’ve got to move onwards and upwards. We know tonight wasn’t good enough, but we’ve got a big week ahead of us. We know we’ve got to take six from the next two.”

Kansas City defender Brittany Taylor became the third player in NWSL history to make 100 career regular season appearances, joining Christine Nairn and Lauren Barnes of Seattle Reign FC.

FC Kansas City moved into eighth place in the NWSL with the win, at 17 points, one ahead of the Breakers and Spirit. They will next host the Thorns on Wednesday and visit the Red Stars on Sunday.
