NWSL soccer is on its way back to Texas. Despite one unnamed Houston player testing positive for COVID-19 this week, the Dash will walk out under the BBVA floodlights to face off against the Orlando Pride on Saturday evening. Both Bridgette Andrejewski (general illness) and Erin Simon (personal reasons) have been ruled out for the match.
The player in question tested positive on two consecutive tests, conducted Monday and Tuesday, before then commencing a 14 day self-isolation. The rest of the Dash team and coaching staff has been required to produce consecutive negative test results before being deemed fit to return to practice.
