DEFENDER ALEX SAHLEN TO MISS 2014 NWSL SEASON

12/11/2013 11:16 AM -

Western New York Flash defender Alex Sahlen has announced that she will miss the 2014 season as she and husband Aaran Lines are expecting their first child next summer. She will continue to serve as the team’s President.

“Aaran and I are excited to start this new chapter in our lives,” Sahlen said. “I’m obviously going to miss being on the field next season, especially after the success our club had in 2013. However, I intend to remain with the team on the administrative side and do what I can to help the Flash win a championship.”

Sahlen has been a staple in the Flash backline since the team’s inception. A member of each of the Flash’s three Championship teams, she also competed in the NWSL this past season, and helped lead the Flash to the inaugural 2013 NWSL Shield after finishing 2013 with the best regular season record.  The 31-year-old was part of a defensive unit that led the league with only 20 goals allowed during the regular season. 

Sahlen started in the first 18 games of the 2013 season but was sidelined for the final six with a torn plantar fascia.  She tallied three assists in her 1555 minutes played.
