As of Friday last week, there was still one Houston Dash player on loan in Australia that new head coach James Clarkson had yet to make contact with. Clarkson did not volunteer the identity of that player, but he made it clear she is not Sofia Huerta.
During a phone interview with The Equalizer on Friday, the newest NWSL coach was on his way home to watch Sydney FC’s 5-2 win over Adelaide United from the night before.
