Houston Dash V Utah Royals: Back and Forth Goal Fest Ends in Draw


The Houston Dash and the Utah Royals put on a show Tuesday morning in their opening Challenge Cup clash, scoring six goals between them in a back and forth contest that ended in a 3-3 draw.

Here’s a recap of how it went down:

34’: Diana Matheson puts the Royals on the board off an Amy Rodriguez cross
45+1’: Rachel Daly responds, leveling the game in first-half stoppage time
47’: Rachel Daly, AGAIN.
61’: Rachel Daly scores her third — but it’s disallowed for goalie interference. On a day where each team fill up the score sheet, it’s a goal which doesn’t count that ends up being the most talked about play.
67’: Even with Daly’s goal taken off the scoreboard, Shea Groom looks like she’s put it away for the Dash when she blasts one from distance into the net.
82’: That is, until Verónica Boquete decides she has something to say.
89’: Then, in the 89th minute, Tziarra King, the rookie out of NC State, heads in her first-ever NWSL score, completing the comeback and tying the game.

Next up: both teams play Saturday, July 4th.

Utah play Sky Blue FC at 12:30pm EST, and Houston takes on OL Reign at 10pm. You can stream both games on CBS All Access.
