The news broke today that the Houston Dash captain Kealia Ohai is out for the remainder of the 2017 season.
The Dash is confirming that Kealia has sprained her ACL and a medical meniscus tear in her left knee during Saturday’s victory against the Orlando Pride.
During the 66th minute of the game, you saw Kealie fall to the ground in what seemed to be a lot of pain and she was taken out to hydrate.
Instead of replacing their captain with Nichelle Prince hey gave Kealia another shot at playing, but that only last 4-minutes before she went down again in pain and grabbing her knee.
This injury is a huge blow to the Houston Dash since she has been on fire this season so far.
The team did have Carli Lloyd return and Poliana Medeiros, known as Poliana has been “impressive” this season. The combination of these two ladies should help fill in that hole of the loss of Kealia some.
