Houston Dash goalkeeper Lydia Williams is expected to miss the next month because of a grade 1 quadriceps strain in her right thigh, the team said Thursday.
Williams had been competing for Australia in the Tournament of Nations. She shut out the United States in Australia’s 1-0 upset last week.
The team has signed former Dash goalkeeper Bianca Henninger as a goalkeeper replacement. She was released prior to the start of the season.
Rookie goalkeeper Jane Campbell has started the last six games for the Dash. She has been in camp with the U.S. women’s national team at the Tournament of the Nations, but has not made an appearance so far in the tournament.
