Latsko lifts Dash to 2-1 win over Reign

It's the second win of the season for the Dash

The Houston Dash beat Seattle Reign FC in dramatic fashion on Wednesday night in front of a crowd of 2,376 at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston as Week 9 in the NWSL kicked off.

It’s the second win of the season for the Dash, who are now 2-4-4 (10 points) and in seventh place. The Reign are still in second place, but dropped to 4-2-2 (14 points) with the loss.

Veronica Latsko scored the game-winner for the Dash in the second minute of stoppage time, after a long run from Thembi Kgatlana to set up the play. The goal came on a counterattack after the Reign nearly scored the winner on their end of the field. Latsko’s shot deflected off Reign defender Steph Catley and past goalkeeper Michelle Betos to put the Dash up 2-1.

 

 

 

It’s the second goal of the season for Latsko, and both have been late game-winners. Her first goal came on May 5 at Sky Blue FC in the 79th minute to give the Dash their first win of the season.

 

Beverly Yanez gave the Reign a 1-0 lead in the 13th minute, cooly tapping home a pass from Jodie Taylor.

 

The Reign, playing their second of three games in eight days, did not start Jess Fishlock and Megan Rapinoe. Rapinoe entered at the start of the second half.

 

The Dash tied the game in the 68th minute when Kristie Mewis capitalized after a Rachel Daly free kick. The Dash earned the set piece after Kristen McNabb was issued a yellow card for a foul on Nichelle Prince.

 

 

The Dash will next be in action on Sunday vs. the Spirit, their third game in nine days. The Reign will head to New Jersey to take on Sky Blue FC on Saturday night.
