The Dash have acquired a host of players over the past month. In light of waiving forward Katie Stengal in May, the Dash traded for Jasmyne Spencer, who previously spent three seasons with OL Reign, tallying two goals. The Dash also signed midfielders Icelandic international Andrea Hauksdottir and 27th overall 2021 NWSL Draft pick Makamae Gomera-Stevens. The Dash’s leading goal scorer Rachel Daly will be unavailable in the Pride’s matchup with Houston as she prepares for the Olympics with Team Great Britain.
The Dash currently have a record of 2-3-1. Houston was on a two-game win streak until the Dash were unable to find the back of the net against Racing Louisville this past Sunday, ultimately falling 1-0 to the expansion side.
