By the numbers – Aguero joins Rooney; Abraham's unique record



It was a bonkers weekend for European football, with the biggest upset caused by Norwich City, who beat Premier League champions Manchester City 3-2 at home, and thus helped Liverpool open up a five-point gap at the top of the table. Manchester United, too, had a welcome return to winning ways, while Tammy Abraham had a slice of history and a dubious distinction to go with it in a thrilling win for Chelsea.

Houston Dash 2, Utah Royals FC 1

Sofia Huerta has been quiet the last few weeks. The midfielder/forward hasn’t been on the scoresheet since June 16, when she scored against the Orlando Pride. However, Huerta got back on the scoresheet tonight against the Utah Royals FC. The league is tight, with playoffs looming closer and closer each week. Utah is hanging onto fourth place with a loose string and the Dash have jumped from eighth to sixth place with a 2-1 victory.

Huerta’s first goal came in the 27th minute, with an assist from Kristie Mewis. Meanwhile, her second goal came in the early part of the second half, with an assist from Rachel Daly. The ball bobbled around the box before finding the foot of Huerta, who took a shot on the right side of the pitch and slipped it past Barnhart.

However, Utah did pull one back, with 15 minutes left in the match, with Gunnhildur Jónsdóttir picking up a loose pass in the box and putting it past Jane Campbell. However, the Royals couldn’t muster up enough for a second goal, losing out on three points on the road.

Houston will be on the television next Tuesday, facing off with the current first-place team in the league: North Carolina. The match will air on ESPNews, on Sept. 17, at 7:30 p.m. Meanwhile, Utah will travel up to the Pacific Northwest on Wednesday to face off with Reign FC.

  • Houston Dash (Sofia Huerta, 27′)
  • Houston Dash (Sofia Huerta, 62′)
  • Utah Royals FC (Gunnhildur Jónsdóttir, 75′)
