Houston Dash defender Katie Naughton was named to the NWSL Team of the Month for July, the league announced today.
The defender led Houston to seven points in July with two victories and a draw. Houston tallied a clean sheet in that stretch with their 2-0 triumph over OL Reign on July 2. Individually, Naughton completed 88 percent of her tackles and 87 percent of her passes in July.
Naughton is the second Dash player to earn Team of the Month honors this season and this is the second time the defender has earned this honor. The 27-year-old was named to the Team of the Month in July 2018 as a member of the Chicago Red Stars.
Naughton and the Dash travel to Tacoma, Washington on Saturday to face OL Reign at 9 p.m. CT. The Dash return to Houston on Friday, Aug. 13 to host the Washington Spirit at 7:30 p.m. CT at BBVA Stadium.
