Matthias goal gives Reign FC the win in Texas, fifth place on the table

The Houston Dash have still yet to find a win against Seattle

While the game may have been played in Frisco, Texas, the Houston Dash are still looking for the first win against Seattle Reign FC. Merritt Mathias scored in the 50th minute, and the Reign clung to the lead for another 40 minutes plus stoppage time for the 1-0 win.

The loss now gives Seattle a 10-0-0 record all time against the Dash.

Forward Beverly Yanez found the seam through multiple orange jerseys to find Mathias, who fired off a rocket with her right foot. It was Mathias’ second goal of the season.

Matthias earned a penalty kick early in the first half, but Houston goalkeeper Jane Campbell came up with a big stop on Reign midfielder Jess Fishlock‘s PK attempt, as well as a second save on the second chance.

Lydia Williams got the start in goal for Seattle Reign FC against her former team, and earned the shutout against the Dash.

Forward Megan Rapinoe also made her return from surgery to repair a torn meniscus in her left knee back in August.

The win was the 50th all-time win for the Reign and head coach Laura Harvey, and thanks to Sky Blue FC’s loss earlier on Sunday evening to FC Kansas City, boosted them into fifth place on the NWSL table. Seattle is now five points behind Orlando Pride and the final playoff spot, with only three games remaining. Fortunately for Seattle, their next game is against the very team they need to beat: the Orlando Pride.
