Clinging to little hope for the post season after quite the rocky season, the Dash are coming off of a 1-1 draw against the Chicago Red Stars furthering their unbeaten streak to two games (they won their first match in six matches two Saturdays ago with a 3-0 win over Portland Thorns FC).
A late equalizer from Rachel Daly gave the Dash what they needed to refrain from a loss and keep momentum going for the team. This week as they look ahead to the first meeting with the Flash this season, they are desperate to win and continue to prove a point as they sit in the ninth place spot in the NWSL standings.
The roster isn’t expected to be missing anyone other than the international players. The rookies, and vets for that matter, have been showing what they have over the last couple of games and giving it their all, so fans can definitely be expecting to see a physical match worth watching. Especially since the Flash are sitting pretty ranked in the third place spot in the standings with an 8-5-1 record on the season.
A win heading into the Olympic break could be a huge sigh of relief for the club and just the right amount of momentum needed going forward since they will have quite the battle towards playoffs once the season resumes in mid-August.
Kickoff is set for 7:30 pm at BBVA Compass Stadium.
