Western New York, Houston split four goals evenly

The Western New York Flash hosted the Houston Dash to a 2-2 draw on Saturday night in what comes off more like a victory for the Flash and a loss for the Dash as the hosts came back twice from down a goal to tie the game. The Flash now remain in the top four as the NWSL season gets closer to playoff time.

The first goal of the match was scored by a wide-open Denise O’Sullivan when Janine Beckie found her with a short pass across the top of the six-yard box for an easy finish in the 27th minute.

Less than ten minutes later, Lynn Williams made a run into the right side of the penalty area where she played back a low cross that was dummied by Jessica McDonald and then buried by Lianne Sanderson in the lower left side of the goal. At halftime, it was even at 1-1.

Houston took the lead for the second time in this match as Kealia Ohai bent the ball around goalkeeper Sabrina D’Angelo and into the side netting of the goal from the edge of the 18 in the 53rd minute of play.

However, their lead wouldn’t last more than 6 minutes as Williams once again served a low cross into the 18 where Makenzy Doniak was left unmarked and free to finish it to tie the game once again for Western New York, ending the scoring at 2-2.

Next for the Houston Dash is a mid-week match against the last-place Boston Breakers on Wednesday, Aug. 31st, at 8:00 p.m. ET.

The WNY Flash return to action with a match against #1 Washington Spirit on Saturday, Sept. 3rd, at 7:00 p.m. ET.
