Seattle Reign keep perfect record against Houston Dash in 2-0 win

Bianca Verar | On a hot, hot afternoon in Houston, the Houston Dash hosted the Seattle Reign in hopes of finally picking their heads up after three consecutive losses. Seattle battled well in the heat and came away with a 2-0 win, keeping their perfect record over Houston. Houston comes out strong, but Seattle breaks through In the first 20 - almost 30 - minutes, it seemed as if Houston would be the ones to find the early goal. Right from the start the home side found themselves on their attacking third more often than not. Although Rachel Daly was positioned at right back, other players were able to step up and create chances for the Dash. Kealia Ohai and Janine Beckie worked well off of each other to create a handful of chances, and their third forward Nichelle Prince even got in on the action, having a few scoring chances herself. The heat took a toll on everyone on the field, Dash and Reign players alike, and injuries also occured on both sides. Daly rolled her ankle in the 15th minute, but was able to continue playing after a few minutes. In the 22nd minute, Beverly Yanez went down with her leg bleeding and was carried off in a stretcher; Katie Johnson entered the match in her place. The Reign were the ones to break through in the 31st minute. Megan Rapnioe's shot at the top of the 18 deflected off of defender Cari Rocarro, putting the visitors up 1-0 right before the mandated hydration break. After the water break, the Dash tried their best to equailze before half. Andressa made...
