Dash gets another measuring stick against one of the best teams in the NWSL
There are more than three months until the Dash knows if he will make his first playoff appearance. But right now, they’re discovering that if they get there, they’ll have a legitimate chance to lift the NWSL Trophy.
The Dash (5-4-1, 16 points) will host the first Portland Thorns (6-3-1, 19 points) at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at BBVA Stadium. This will be the third time in four games that Houston has faced one of the best in the league, and he has won each of the first two meetings against Orlando Pride and North Carolina Courage.
