SEATTLE - Midlfielder Kim Little scored both goals for the Seattle Reign FC in a 2-0 win over the Houston Dash Sunday at Memorial Stadium to remain undefeated.

Little’s first goal came in the 19th minute on a penalty kick after U.S. Women’s National Team forward Sydney Leroux was taken down in the box by Dash midfielder Becky Edwards. It was Little’s second converted penalty of the season.

Little scored again in the 39th minute after Bev Goebel's through ball split the Dash backline. Little now leads the National Women’s Soccer League with four goals.

Leroux had a chance to make it 3-0 in the final minute after she broke away with the ball and past Dash goalkeeper Erin McLeod, but Leroux’s shot hit the left post.

U.S. National Team goalkeeper Hope Solo kept the Dash out of the net, but had a pretty easy day of it overall. The Dash had four shots on goal compared to 14 for the Reign.

Seattle is now 3-0 and first place in the NWSL.

The Reign hit the road for three matches starting Wednesday at 4 p.m. PDT against Sky Blue FC in New Jersey. The match can be seen at YouTube.com/NWSL.

The Reign’s next home match is against Kansas City, May 14 at 7 p.m.
