The Scouting Report
Zero. That’s how many goals the Houston Aces allowed through their first six games of the 2013 season, during which the team outscored their opponents 13–0. Even the closest match in that streak—a 1-0 victory over the Fort Worth Panthers—was completely dominated by the Aces, who rifled off 30 shots compared to two by the Panthers. With the regular season sprinting toward its final stretch, the Aces defend The Kinkaid School pitch and the pirate’s treasure buried at midfield during their final four home matches, which include showdowns with Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and Houston South Select—all of whom have already fallen to the Aces.
From Haiti to Canada, Miami to L.A., places from all around the world have had ambassadors on the Houston Aces roster. Many players still have come from Houston’s very backyards, hailing from universities such as Rice and Texas State. Established in 2012, the club competes both regionally and nationally as part of the Elite branch of the Women’s Premier Soccer League. Just as the players call many different places home, the team has the honor of calling three Houston-area venues home, giving fans across the city a chance to catch a match. Such a wide reach has helped the team forge a strong relationship to its community—one that Aces players reinforce whenever possible by hosting soccer camps, appearing at community functions, and refraining from kicking items into their cart at the supermarket.
