The Houston Dash strung together their second-consecutive win of the season, defeating Kansas City 1-0 on Sunday.
The game was back and forth from the start, with the sides looking evenly matched in the first half.
Houston finally broke the deadlock in the 79th minute when Katie Naughton headed down a Dash corner that found the back of the net. The late set-piece goal put Houston up 1-0 with ten minutes left in regulation.
