WNY Sitting Tied for First Place with Three Games Left

BUFFALO, NY (July 3, 2017) --- The Western New York Flash (5-2-0) are sitting in great position as they enter the home stretch of their schedule and look ahead to the playoffs. The team is riding a three-game win streak and is tied with the Inferno Rush at the top of the table as they return home for a doubleheader weekend.  

“While this season has been a roller coaster of emotions for all involved with the big wins and the couple losses, but it’s an amazing feeling that we are tied for first place,” Head Coach Matt Waddington explained. “Our goal at the beginning of the season was to make the playoffs, and the girls have set themselves up quite nicely.”

The Flash recently wrapped up a very successful weekend in Massachusetts, where they put up a 6-2 win over the Worcester Smiles and followed that the following afternoon with a 1-0 win over the New England Mutiny. Four different players scored in the win over the Mutiny, led by newcomer Jamie Boyer’s hat trick performance. On Sunday, Carissima Cutrona put home the game-winner on a feed from Erica Hubert in the 85’ to give the Flash their fourth win of the year.

This past weekend held the side in a battle for first place as they again hit the road to take on the Rochester Lancers, who were then in sole possession of first place. Cutrona again came to the rescue, opening the scoring in the 42’ on another feed from Hubert before adding the eventual game-winner in the 67’ to give the Flash a 2-1 win on a scathing hot day in Rochester. The University at Buffalo product leads the side with seven goals on the season.

“On the road we have shown incredible grit and determination that now we have to show on our home turf,” Waddington added. “We have a great opportunity in the final three games, knowing that we hold our own destiny as we play the team tied for first with us, and the second-place Rochester Lancers. It’s an exciting time for the girls, as well as the organization, and I know the girls will leave everything on the field in our final three matches.”

The Flash will return home this weekend as they host the Connecticut Fusion at 6:00 ET on Saturday, July 7, followed by a showdown with the Inferno Rush on the afternoon of Saturday, July 8 at 1:00 ET.

The team will finish off their schedule on Saturday, July 14 in a rematch with the Rochester Lancers at 6:00 ET. All three matches will be hosted at Dobson Field at D’Youville College and fans can purchase tickets to the three games here.
