PISCATAWAY, NEW JERSEY (August 11, 2018) With a brace by Rachel Daly (shown right, No. 3), the Houston Dash picked up their sixth win of the season with a 2-1 win over Sky Blue FC on Saturday Night. The 2,126 fans in attendance at Yurcak Field saw Daly score her first goal in the match in the seventh minute, off a corner kick from Kealia Ohai. Sky Blue evened the score 57 minutes later on a Madison Tiernan goal, with Daly securing the brace in the 73rd minute from a penalty kick. The two scores pushes the defender's total to nine in 2018 and ranks her fourth in the NWSL. Three players are ahead of her with 10 each.

The next game for Houston is a Friday, August 17 match against the Washington Spirit. The Dash and Spirit have met twice previously this season; with Houston coming out on top in both matches; on May 27, Houston secured a 3-2 at home, along with a 1-0 road win on July 21.
