Houston Dash Tokyo 2020 Round Up: Quarterfinals
TheÂ Tokyo 2020 knockout rounds commencedÂ Friday morningÂ on the other side of the world.Â There wasÂ plenty of action in all three matches involving Houston Dash players, including extra time for each match.
CanadaÂ openedÂ the Quarterfinals as they took on Brazil in an excitingÂ back and forth match. ForwardÂ Nichelle PrinceÂ and defenderÂ Allysha ChapmanÂ started the match. The two sides exchanged multiple chances and looks at goal, but neither could find the back of the net even in extra time, sending the match into penalties. With two bigÂ back-to-backÂ saves from Canadian goalkeeper Stephanie Labbe, Canada advanced to the semifinals.Â PrinceÂ logged 63 minutes for Canada while ChapmanÂ loggedÂ 107 minutes with extra time.
TheÂ USWNT wrapped up Quarterfinals with a re-match of the 2019 Women's World Cup, taking on the Netherlands. MidfielderÂ Kristie MewisÂ was in the match day 18. Netherlands opened scoring early, but the USWNT was quick to respond with two goals from midfielder Sam Mewis and forward Lynn Williams. The Netherlands would score again thoughÂ in the 54thÂ minute. The two teams would stay deadlocked through extra time, having to settle their fate through penalties. Goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher came up big withÂ two saves to push the USWNT to the semis.
