Red Stars draw with Dash on late Casey Krueger goal


The Chicago Red Stars emerged on Friday night with a point following a 1-1 draw against the Houston Dash.

Houston opened the scoring in the first half when Kristie Mewis sent a long ball in for Rachel Daly to chase down in the 22nd minute. After fighting off Tierna Davidson, Daly got a blistering shot off to secure her fifth goal of the season.

Play remained even between the two teams until Mallory Pugh drew a free kick just outside the box.

Danielle Colaprico took the kick, and goalkeeper Jane Campbell made a big save, but Casey Krueger was there to force the equalizer.

The Dash came close to a game-winner in stoppage time when Daly found space at the top of the box to get a big shot off but missed the target.
