The Houston Dash are headed to Seattle to take on the Reign on Sunday. Home or away the Dash have yet to win against the Reign. In each of their five match ups the Dash have struggled to hold Reign to less than two goals and have never manged to score more than one.

During the break in NWSL action the Dash traveled to Frisco, TX to play the ladies of FC Dallas. They got a 3-0 win on June 3. Melissa Henderson, Kealia Ohai and Stephanie Ochs all got on the score sheet in the game.

The Dash had eight players out for National team duty but all eight will be available against Seattle. Morgan Brian started both games for the USWNT against Japan. Janine Beckie and Allysha Chapman were second half subs in the CanWNT's first game and started in their second game. Beckie snagged a 94th minute goal against Brazil during the break. Andressa and Poliana started in Brazil's first game and came off the bench in the second. Lydia Williams played in one game for Australia during the break. Denise O'Sullivan started for Ireland in one game and came on as a second half sub in the second game. Rachel Daly got her first cap for England and scored her first goal for the senior team.

The Reign are currently sitting just one point head of the Dash in the NWSL standings with one more game played. At 2-3-2 the Reign have stumbled since losing Jess Fishlock, however, the midfielder is finally returning to action after breaking her leg earlier this year. Now the Reign are missing Manon Melis to a tibia fracture as well as Megan Rapinoe to ACL surgery. The Dash are still without Carli Lloyd while Melissa Henderson is listed as probable on the injury report.

The Dash play the Reign on Sunday, June 12 at 6 pm CT.
