he Houston Dash travel to Lynn Family Stadium to face Racing Louisville FC


HOUSTON (Thursday, March 24, 2022) – The Houston Dash travel to Lynn Family Stadium to face Racing Louisville FC on Friday in their first road trip of the 2022 NWSL Challenge Cup. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. CT and the Dash are looking to bounce back from a 3-1 loss at PNC Stadium last Sunday against Chicago.  

Friday’s match will mark the fourth time in history that the two teams will meet after Louisville joined the NWSL last year as the 10th team in the league. Racing posted a 5-12-7 record in its first regular season and finished winless in the 2021 Challenge Cup. 


Houston is coming off a 3-1 loss in the opening game of the Challenge Cup to Chicago at PNC Stadium on March 20. Defender Katie Naughton scored the opening goal of the game off a set piece from forward Rachel Daly. Naughton knocked the ball into the back of the goal with a methodical touch as she was falling into the far post. 


Racing made several offseason changes including the addition of Kim Björkegren from Cyprus Apollon Ladies FC, a first division team from Cyprus. Björkegren led Apollon Ladies to 64 of 66 total points available in league play. Racing also acquired former Dash and North Carolina Courage forward Jessica McDonald in a trade with the Courage during the offseason. McDonald was credited with the assist on Cece Kizer’s goal during their Challenge Cup opener against Kansas City, which ended in a 1-1 draw. 


Houston will return home to PNC Stadium on Wed. March 30 to host the Kansas City Current. For tickets and additional information, visit HoustonDash.com
