Souza, Adams, Lohman and Williams were the only players chosen from the 12 available.

Souza, 23, made 16 appearances and six starts for the Houston Dash. In 507 minutes of play, she registered one assist for the expansion club. The Salvador, Brazil native’s lone assist came in the Dash’s first win in club history, a 3-2 victory over the Boston Breakers on April 20.

Williams, 26, started 14 games in goal for the Western New York Flash. The Katanning, West Australia native recorded two shutouts in 2014 prior to tearing her ACL while participating in the 2014 AFC Women’s Asian Cup with the Australian Women’s National Team, an injury that ended her NWSL season.

The following players were not selected off of waivers (with previous team in parentheses): Emily Van Egmond (Chicago Red Stars), Nina Burger (Houston Dash), Kika Toulouse (Houston Dash), Angie Kerr (Portland Thorns FC), Madeleine Thompson (Sky Blue FC), Teigen Allen (Western New York Flash), DiDi Haracic (Western New York Flash) and Courtney Wetzel (Western New York Flash).

The result gives Dallas an eight-point lead over Vancouver with six games remaining, and now FCD can turn their focus to avoiding the Knockout Round, as they trail Real Salt Lake by just one point for third place.
