FC Kansas City travels to Houston to face the expansion Dash for the first time tonight at 7:00 PM CT. The Blues are feeling more confident after notching their first win against Chicago Wednesday.

The Blues are looking to build momentum from that win and get a result on the road. While Houston is new to the league, the two teams will have some familiarity with each other. Dash forward Teresa Noyola and goalkeeper Bianca Henninger both played for FC Kansas City last season and Houston coach Randy Walrum coached midfielder Jen Buczkowski and forward Melissa Henderson at Notre Dame.

Forward Amy Rodriguez is tied for second in the league with three goals in the first four matches and scored the game winner in FC Kansas City's last match. Lauren Holiday has the other goal for the Blues.

Rodriguez, Lauren Holiday and Becky Sauerbrunn have been called up to the National Team by interim coach Jill Ellis for a friendly with Canada in Winnipeg on May 8th but will be available for this match.
