Angel City FC and Houston Dash settle for the scoreless draw after controversial ending

Angel City and the Houston Dash played to a scoreless draw when video review determined that Messiah Bright did not score in the final moments of stoppage time on Saturday night in the National Women’s Soccer League.

It appeared the ball may have crossed the goal line when it went through Dash goalkeeper Jane Campbell’s legs but the review did not confirm that Angel City scored.

Angel City (3-6-3) is now winless in five straight matches. The Dash are 3-6-4.

“I’m gonna say no comment, because I think I’ll get myself into trouble,” Angel City coach Becki Tweed said. “I have my feelings and my thoughts and I’m sure you could see them on the sideline, and I’m just gonna keep them to myself.”

The NWSL does not have goal-line technology.
