Seattle adjusted to the heat with some smart midfield play and a bit of good luck.

In what ended up being Randy Waldrum's swan song, Seattle Reign FC outlasted the Houston Dash in hot conditions to come away with their first road win and first shutout of the season. Seattle stuck with their usual 4-3-3, but to compensate for the extreme conditions they didn't push their outside backs up as much and kept only one player forward to apply high pressure, defending in more of a 4-5-1.

What a difference a week makes. After opening the season to a 1-1 draw against Sky Blue FC, Seattle Reign FC put on an old fashioned hammering on the Houston Dash, winning 5-1 Saturday night at Memorial Stadium.

A commanding all-around performance from the Reign means high marks across the board.

This week's Reign game was certainly entertaining for the fans, but we've seen dominant performances like this from the team in the past which have resulted in much closer scorelines. So, before getting into the individual ratings, I want to highlight the fact that the players maintained momentum even after the fantastic first two goals, when it's all too easy to relax slightly—even subconsciously—and fall into the trap that makes 2-0 "the most dangerous lead.
