The Houston Dash beat the Washington Spirit 1-0 on Sunday morning. The game was originally scheduled for Saturday night, but was postponed to Sunday at 10 a.m. ET due to poor field conditions. The Maryland SoccerPlex was pelted with heavy rain for most of the day on Saturday and the field was deemed unplayable.

The Dash are now 6-7-5 with 23 points and moved into sixth place in the standings, five points behind the fifth place Red Stars and six points out of a playoff spot. With the loss the Spirit dropped to 2-12-4 (10 points) and have been eliminated from playoff contention.

Houston scored in the third minute on Rachel Daly’s seventh goal of the season. Sofia Huerta earned the assist on the play, her fourth of the year.

Dash defender Janine van Wyk was injured in the 25th minute and was replaced by Veronica Latsko. The Dash said they would provide additional updates on her injury.

Dash goalkeeper Jane Campbell earned the clean sheet, making nine saves, including one late in the game on Spirit forward Ashley Hatch.

Both teams are now off for the international break and will be back in action on August 5. The Dash will host Utah Royals FC and the Spirit will visit the Reign.
