The Washington Spirit will make their way to Houston in hopes to secure three points against the Houston Dash on Wednesday night.
The Spirit are coming off of a 3-1 loss to the Chicago Red Stars, dropping them to 7W-8L-5D.
For the first time in quite a while, both midfielder Rose Lavelle and forward Mallory Pugh took the field against the Red Stars. Lavelle returned to the lineup after suffering a head injury a few months ago and played 45 minutes in her first game since August 17.
During the 80th minute, Pugh scored her first goal of the season but it wasn’t enough to take the lead over the Dash.
Wednesday nights game will be Washington’s first time as a part of the NWSL’s new broadcast deal with ESPN.
Kickoff is set for 9 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
