OL Reign is looking for some redemption against the Houston Dash tonight, after falling to the Texas team earlier in July. The match kicks off at 7 PM PT at Cheney Stadium and will stream on Twitch for all viewers, both in the U.S. and internationally.
OL Reign are coming off back-to-back 2-0 wins, while the Dash arrive in Tacoma after two tough matches — a 1-0 loss to Portland and 1-1 draw against Gotham. They’ll certainly be hungry for three points.
OL Reign are 5-6-1 (16 points, eighth place), while the Dash are 5-5-2 (17 points, sixth place).
What to Watch
