The Western New York Flash of the Women’s Premiere Soccer League Elite (WPSL) defeated FC Indiana 4-1 to win their first game of the season on May 12, in front of a crowd of 1,304. The win included a hat trick from Spanish international Adriana Santamaria Martin.

The Flash were off to a fast start with a goal in the fourth minute by Martin on an assist by Australian International Emily VanEgmond. The second goal came off a penalty awarded to the Flash in the tenth minute. Adriana took the penalty and scored.

FC Indiana played a low pressure game with the Flash dictating the pace of the game and pushing numbers forward. During the duration of the match, Indiana received 3 yellow cards and multiple fouls to try and slow the Flash's attack. 

The Flash’s third goal came off a corner served by team captain McCall Zerboni. Rookie Laura Heyboer planted herself in front of FC Indiana’s goalkeeper, took possession of a loose ball and put it away in the 81st minute. A second penalty kick was awarded to the Flash in the 86th minute. Martin took the penalty and hit it to the low right to bring the Flash up 4-1, and earned herself a hat trick.

“I love taking penalties,” Martin said after being the first player in history to score a hat trick at Sahlen's Stadium. 

Zerboni added that Martin is “so composed, and a wise player.” Zerboni, played midfield pushing forward throughout the game.

“I wanted to be the engine this year,” Zerboni said, after staying in the WNY area in the off season to work on her game with Head Coach Aaran Lines and teammates Brittany Cameron, Kimberly Brandao and Alex Sahlen. 

"I thought we started the game out well and it was good to get three points under our belt," Lines says of the performance. 

The next game for the WNY Flash takes place at Sahlen Stadium, 460 Oak Street, Rochester N.Y. May 19, at 7 p.m. versus NY Fury. All WNY Flash home games this season will be broadcast online at livesportsvideo.com.
