Sydney pounced first late in the first half when Caitlin Foord beat two defenders and struck from inside the box to give the Sky Blues a 1-0 lead in the 33rd minute. Sydney would strike again in the second half when the Dash’s own Sofia Huerta ripped one from inside the box in the 68th minute, giving the team a 2-0 lead.
