The records keep on tumbling. Another cool, calm and confident midfield display led the way as the Houston Dash dismantled the North Carolina Courage 4-1 at BBVA stadium. The 2018 and 2019 NWSL champions had previously never lost a match to Houston in their history, nor had they ever been defeated by three or more goals.
Unlike the raucous 4-3 affair fixture in Cary, NC, this match opened with a more polite and cozy atmosphere. Both sides kept their shape well for the opening half an hour. Houston once again striving to keep the ball and let defenders Katie Naughton and Hayley Hansen build the play.
