20190420 Sky Blue FC v Houston Dash
Yurcak Field, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ
I have not been to a game in a while, so it was nice to get out and see some live action.
Although Sky Blue was the team we were rooting for, it was easy to see that Houston was the stronger team. If it weren't for the exceptional play in goal by Kailen Sheridan, this game could have been a blow-out. The 1-0 score does not give credit to the Dash's efforts.
The passing accuracy of 68% for Sky Blue was evident by soft passes that did not make their intended mark, throughout the game. Sky Blue did have a better second half when they finally challenged the Dash keeper.
The Houston goal was scored by Sofia Huerta.
Magnetic schedule game-day promo
A nice surprise was the game-day program, which was handed out free to attendees. It was a simple design of a 17x11 folded paper, which when unfolded provides both team lineups and a nice mini-poster of Imani Dorsey, Raquel Rodriguez and Sarah Killion.
