The Houston Dash defeated the San Antonio Athenians this evening in a scrimmage at the Houston Sports Park, 4-0.
The Dash took the lead in the seventh minute when forward Jamia Fields dribbled the ball into the box on the left wing and shot through two defenders and into the top right corner, beating San Antonio goalkeeper Mia Wildeman. Six minutes later, Houston found the back of the net again through a corner kick. Dash defender Annika Schmidt headed the ball first, and midfielder Cami Privett punched the ball in the back of the net.
Houston continued to press, tallying their third and fourth goals in the 41st and 42nd minute. Schmidt was able to score a goal off a rebound shot that midfielder Makamae Gomera-Stevens shot in the box from a corner kick. A minute later, Dash midfielder Maegan Rosa scored a flawless goal when she dribbled through the right side of the field and chipped the ball over the Wildeman and into the goal.
The Dash are back in league action this Sunday when they travel to the Midwest to face Kansas City NWSL at Legends Field in Kansas City, Kansas. Fans can follow the action on Paramount+ and Twitch internationally.
