New york flash draw with Portland Thorns 1-1
It was a good game to watch but I really wouldn’t want be there watching in the stadium as it pured it down! The game ended 1-1 with plenty of chances and opportunities for either side…In my opinion though New york flash dominated the game but it wasn’t meant to be. So what happened and who scored what? Let me explain…
Due to the heavy rain there was a 43 minute delay 7 minutes into the game to wait for it to stop…. but the weather did not put a dampener on things excuse the pun but at the end of the match both sides drew at 1-1 a piece. Despite the horrendous weather 3, 674 fans tuned out to watch the game which was being played at the Sahlen’s stadium in New york. New york Flash needed a win today as they start to trail behind in the league with only 4 points whereas in contrast Portland thorns are still yet to be beaten in the league and have amassed 7 points so far.
The new york flash started of with the goal scoring when Spanish player Sonia Bermudez put the team ahead with a amazing kick that the Portland Thorns goalie Angerer could get a touch on as it slammed into the upper reaches of the goal. As Jessica Mcdonald manages to equalize quickly after Sarah Huffman crosses it into the goal area… Williams manages to block it the cross from going in only for it to fall into the path of Jessica Mcdonald who was able to just tap it in.
There was plenty of chances for both teams, but it was evident that flash was trying hard to win this match as they seemed to dominate play even in the last minutes of the game NY flash had a good chance to win as shim had the ball but it wasn’t to be as Thorns did well in defense.
The flash’s next match will be again at home and this time they will be taking on FC Kansas city who are currently 3rd in the league.
