Houston Dash held off the Chicago Red Stars to win the NWSL Challenge Cup title, the first title in Dash history. Sophie Schmidt converted a penalty kick inside the first five minutes to give Houston a 1-0 lead early, a lead the Dash would never give up. The clincher came in stoppage time, when Shea Groom scored an empty-netter, her third goal in the tournament, to secure the 2-0 victory.
