Houston will be without star Ebony Salmon who leads the team with nine goals on the season, as the English striker is out on COVID-19 protocol.
The Dash prevailed in the team’s last contest, with Salmon notching the game-winning brace. OL Reign, however, is in top form, entering Houston riding a four-game unbeaten streak.
OL Reign and the Houston Dash will face off on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. ET on Twitch.
