Player jumping with enthusiasm/ JWS

The matchup between the Dash and Kansas City proved to be a lively one, as the teams traded goals until the final whistle.

KC opened up scoring in the 13th minute, when Amy Rodriguez tapped in a well-placed ball from Mallory Weber to go up 1-0.

Houston responded in the 60th minute with a redirected header from Rachel Daly to equalize. Sunday night’s performance solidified Daly as Houston’s all-time leading goal scorer.

Only five minutes later, Houston added to their lead. Kristie Mewis sent a lofting corner kick into the back post where Shea Groom knocked in a bouncing header to put the Dash up 2-1.

Then, in extra time, Taylor Leach powered in a last-minute header to even the score at 2-2.

Kansas City now has two ties to start their first season in the NWSL and will look for their first win against the Chicago Red Stars on Wednesday. The Dash will hope to turn their season around, after opening with a loss and a tie, when they face the Washington Spirit on Wednesday.
