The Houston Dash welcomed Tigres Femenil to Houston this weekend, and then promptly dismantled their guests 5-1 at the BBVA Stadium. Despite the decidedly pro-Tigres crowd, Houston played a smart game, absorbing pressure before capitalizing on mistakes in a flurry of goals that all but put the game out of reach a half an hour in.
Tigres did well early on, pressing the Dash and forcing them to make mistakes and turnovers in their own end. Tigres looked composed on the ball and well in control, while Houston looked back on their heels. When Houston looked like they were going to get opportunities, they were quickly and correctly whistled offside.
