Rachel Daly Wednesday was named winner of the National Women’s Soccer League goal of the week.
The Houston Dash forward scored the second goal in a 2-0 season-opening victory over the Chicago Red Stars.
The former St. John’s University standout tallied an insurance score in the 80th minute at BBVA Compass Stadium.
After forward Kealia Ohai gave the hosts a 1-0 lead in the 15th minute, Daly gave the hosts some breathing room late in the match.
In the 80th minute, Ohai went down the left side and sent a low cross to Daly at the right side of the penalty area. As Daly controlled the ball, she made a half turn to get away from her mark and curled a shot to the upper left corner of the net.
Here are two looks to Daly’s goal:
