FC Kansas City 4-0 over Houston

Blues forward Liz Bogus scored the game winner in Houston - Thad Bell

The Blues were able to cruise to a 4-0 win in Houston after Dash defender red carded

FC Kansas City is starting to look like the dominant team of last season after dropping the Dash 4-0 in Houston Saturday night.

Head coach Vlatko Andonovski is feeling better now that his team has two straight victories. "It feels good the way the players are performing, it's not like we came out and created one opportunity and won the game. I feel like we made a statement, we did well and created several opportunities for the goals."

Liz Bogus scored the opening goal early in the first half for the visitors but the Blues coach was not satisfied with his team at that point.

"I have to say in the first half I was not happy with the performance of the players. I think we scored a very nice goal and there were a couple of good parts and periods of good possession. Overall not happy with their performance. In the second half they really turned it around, changed their attitude and their approach to the game," Andonovski  explained."

U.S. National Team forward Amy Rodriguez doubled the lead in the 47th minute and as Houston fought to get back in the game it left their defense vulnerable. Rodriguez took advantage of that and streaked towards goal when she was tripped up by Osinachi Ohale just outside the box. The referee flashed the red card for Ohale and Houston went down to ten players.

At that point the game was not in doubt. Erika Tymrak added a goal in the 80th minute when she deftly dribbled around a pair of defenders and the slotted the shot between them and past diving Canadian keeper Erin McLeod.

Rookie Frances Silva made her first start last match and achieved another milestone when she got her first professional in the 89th minute.

Next up is a trip to Western NY Flash for another midweek game.
