Red Stars score late, salvage draw with Dash

Taylor Comeau's goal spoils Houston's home opener

Taylor Comeau scored in the first minute of stoppage time and the Red Stars salvaged a draw in Houston in the final game of Week 1 of the regular season. Chicago finally spoiled the home opener for the Dash, after losing in Houston to kick off the season in 2016 and 2017.

 

 

 

With the Red Stars trailing 1-0, Comeau rose up to get her head on a Danielle Colaprico corner kick. The ball glanced off the head of a Dash defender and into the back of the net.

 

The Red Stars didn’t get their first shot on goal until the 88th minute, and Comeau’s goal came on just their second. Chicago goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher made three saves to keep things close.

 

The Red Stars also spoiled what would’ve been a win for new Dash coach Vera Pauw in her first NWSL game.

 

 

The Dash took the lead in the 38th minute courtesy of one of the new faces on this year’s squad. Kimberly Keever, the No. 12 overall pick in the 2018 NWSL College Draft, connected on a pass from Savannah Jordan for her first NWSL goal.

 

The game was also Jordan’s Dash debut, after joining the team in the trade that sent Andressinha to Portland.

Other players making their debuts for Houston were 19-year-old South Africa midfielder Linda Motlhalo, new signing Mana Shim and rookie Veronica Latsko.

Red Stars forward Michele Vasconcelos made her NWSL debut after missing all of last year due to the birth of her daughter. Vasconcelos was selected by the Red Stars with the 11th overall pick in the 2017 NWSL College Draft.

The Red Stars were missing six key players in the game. Sam Kerr, the 2017 NWSL MVP who joined the Red Stars in a January trade, is on international duty for Australia. Because of injury: Casey Short (right ankle sprain), Vanessa DiBernardo (stress fracture pelvis), Julie Ertz (right knee sprain), Yuki Nagasato (left hamstring strain) and Rosie White (right and left navicular fracture).
