Houston has had some mild, slightly wet weather this year. OK, there was crazy rain and flooding. Back on May 27th, the Dash were forced to cancel the match due to the rain and lightning near their home field. On Thursday, they'll try again, hosting the Washington Spirit in what they hope will be a successful restart to the season.
Not working in the Dash's favor, but in good news for WoSo fans everywhere, the Spirit announced on Wednesday that USWNT defender Ali Krieger is back with the team and would be available to play at Houston. No word on any of the other players whose Olympics have ended on either side.
Look for Rachel Daly and Kealia Ohai to take over this match and grab three points. They've been a bright spot for Houston and the league this year, and are very fun to watch.
Take a break from Rio and enjoy the NWSL as always: streaming on YouTube. Then watch Friday's medal matches and see if you can spot Pia's big blue bus parked in front of goal. You won't be able to miss it.
