The Dynamo advanced to the Round of 16 with a 3-2 win at North Carolina FC on Wednesday night. With the score tied at 2-2 in the 88th minute, the match was delayed due to lightning around the stadium. After an 88-minute weather delay, play resumed and the match finished 2-2 after 90 minutes, leading to two 15-minute added extra time periods. Dynamo midfielder Memo Rodriguez picked a good time to score his first goal with the club. The 21-year-old Dynamo Academy alumnus struck a right-footed blast in the 109th minute that proved to be the game-winner.
The Dash match is expected to kick off at approximately 8 p.m. CDT after a standard warm-up period for the teams following the U.S. Open Cup match. The Dash and Boston have played one another seven times over the last four years, with the Dash holding a 5-2-0 edge in the series. Houston, led by two-time FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year Carli Lloyd and U.S. Women’s National Team players Morgan Brian and Kealia Ohai, is looking to mount a surge over the second half of the season to reach its goal of making the NWSL playoffs for the first time in club history.
