It's three points in the bag for WNY!
Western new york flash have set their season off with a bang on Sunday as they defeat Washington spirit! At the end of the game both teams played really well but it just wasn't the spirits day as the wny managed to beat them 3-1. New yorks flash have been signing a lot of international players this season and it seems to have payed off as Vicky Losada more or less won this game for the flash side scoring 2 of the 3 goals.. and even the goal she didn't score she made it happen with an assist anyway!

Flash coach Aaran Lines was pleased with the teams performance adding he thought the team played "very well".... thanks to the team being "determined" and "organized" which led them to create the good opportunities!
Vicky Losada jumped the team into the lead proving why Barcelona picked her as their captain with a shot in the 15 minute putting the team into the lead early on!
In the second half it was Washington Spirit's turn to fight back and managed to score a equalizer from Christine Nairin, the midfield did it in style with a terrific corner kick that just seemed to curve straight into the back of the net.
But celebrations for the Washington team were short lived as four minutes after the equalizer Brittany Taylor slides a goal in from a assist made by viky.
Then 67 minutes into the game Viky made sure to get another one Adriana Martin (also from spain) passed it to Vicky to finish off the game once and for all!
It was a good game with 2,306 watching the game at Maureen Hendricks Field stadium... seems the nwsl is averaging at 2000+ per game!
Saturday Flash will be going up against Chicago Red stars
