Flash come from behind, draw Dash 3-3

The Western New York Flash came from behind to snag a 3-3 draw with the Houston Dash on Saturday night in front of 4,329 fans at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Lianne Sanderson opened the scoring for the Flash in the 3rd minute of play, when she slotted a pass from Lynn Williams inside the far post, beating Dash keeper Bianca Henninger.

In the 31st minute, Dash forward Rachel Daly equalized with a screamer from 30-yards out into the top left corner.

Kelia Ohai added goals in the 47th and 63rd minutes to put the Dash up 3-1. However, a goal from Jessica McDonald in the 70th minute let the Flash right back into the game. McDonald was unmarked on the edge of the Dash six-yard box and was able to finish a cross from Williams.

The Dash weren’t able to handle the pressure from Western New York, and Williams was able to beat her mark at the back post in stoppage time to finish a header from McDonald.

After the Olympic break, the Dash resume NWSL play with a match on Thursday, August 18 at home against the Washington Spirit, while the Flash’s next match is a rematch at home against the Dash on Saturday, August 27.
