Houston Dash earn 1-0 win over Washington Spirit in match postponed due to storms

The Houston Dash earned a 1-o win over the Washington Spirit Sunday morning, claiming three points in a match originally scheduled to be played Saturday night but was postponed due to storms.

Sofia Huerta delivered a volley to the left side of the box and Rachel Daly tapped it in during the third minute, pushing the Dash ahead 1-0. It proved to be the game-winner. Houston wasn’t a major scoring threat the rest of the match, with Spirit goalkeeper facing just two shots on goal and saving one of them.

Washington pushed for the equalizer, firing 23 total shots and nine on goal. Dash goalkeeper Jane Campbell delivered nine saves. 

With the win, Houston (6-7-5, 23 points) moves into fifth place in the NWSL table and sits six points behind the Orlando Pride for the fourth and final NWSL playoff spot. The Spirit (2-12-4, 10 points), meanwhile, were eliminated from playoff consideration.

After poor storms soaked the Maryland SoccerPlex Saturday and made the field unplayable, the match was moved to 10 a.m. Sunday to accommodate Houston’s travel schedule. As a result, NWSL officials said there was not enough time to organize a livestream and it was the first match this season not to be broadcast on television or via a livestream.
