WHAT HAPPENED? A quick Houston Dash counter-attack saw Maria Sanchez sending a long ball towards Alozie as the Nigerian made a run down the middle before lobbing the ball over Gotham goalkeeper Mandy Haught who came out of her line. The lob, from nearly 30 yards away from the goal, went straight into the net.

Unable to control her momentum, Haught collided with Alozie which resulted in the striker going down on the ground.
