NJ/NY Gotham FC finally won their second game of the season when they beat the North Carolina Courage 1-0 at home.  Lynn Williams scored her first goal of 2024 while the defense was superb in keeping the Courage out of goal.  This was a much-needed win before the Bats headed out on the road to Texas and California, with their first stop being the Houston Dash.

Houston is struggling to start their season as well, for they are in second to last place with a 1-3-3 record.  Their lone win came against 12th-place Bay FC, but they did recently draw against the Kansas City Current.  Similar to Gotham FC, they can struggle to find the back of the net, for six of their seven games saw the team score one or none.  Whether the NJ/NY team can steal three points from the Texas team is yet to be seen, but based on rosters, they certainly have a shot.

Meanwhile, Gotham will look to utilize their North Carolina win as a spark.  The players know they have to be better, and Houston is the place to illuminate the talent on their roster.  A win on the road could also move the team into a playoff spot, pending the results of Angel City FC and Racing Louisville FC.

The key to winning this fixture is to score more than once.  Gotham FC continues to be an offensive threat every week; they need to capitalize on their chances.  Juan Carlos Amorós also should start Crystal Dunn.  She makes a huge difference in the attack regardless of whether she is on the wings or midfield.  It has been surprising that she does not start every game.  The head coach likes to rotate, but with a talent like Dunn, she should be starting more than half of the games.

On a non-soccer note, the Houston area is beginning its recovery from terrible flooding.  Hundreds of people had to be rescued and the floods impacted many homes.  Hopefully, all of the areas that dealt with the floods will have a swift recovery.
