The Houston Dash tied with the Chicago Red Stars in a scoreless draw tonight at BBVA Stadium in the opening match of the 2021 NWSL Challenge Cup presented by Secret Deodorant.
Dash goalkeeper Lindsey Harris kept a clean sheet in her Dash debut, a feat that no other goalkeeper before her accomplished. The Austin native made a spectacular diving save in the 18th minute to deny Chicago center back Kayla Sharples. After a Chicago corner was initially cleared, the Red Stars cycled the ball back around to the right flank for a cross. Sharples ran onto it and volleyed it on target from six yards, but Harris leapt across her goal to snatch the shot out of the air.
