Kansas City beat the Western New York Flash 9th May
Western New York Flash 0 – 1 Kansas City
Liz Bogus 73′ (Kansas City)
The Western New York Flash lost 1-0 to defending NWSL Champion FC Kansas City on Friday night in front of 1,802 fans, closing out a two-game homestand at Sahlen’s Stadium. The two teams will meet up again on Thursday night, as the Flash (1-3-0, 3 points) travel to face the Blues (3-2-0, 9 points) at 8 p.m. ET at Swope Soccer Village.
After 73 minutes in a deadlock, visiting FC Kansas City broke through with Liz Bogus scoring her second goal of the year. Mandy Laddish sent Bogus running on the left side, and the forward powered into the box before roofing a shot over Flash goalkeeper Sabrina D’Angelo.
Despite the Flash holding possession for much of the match, the Kansas City goal would prove to be the difference maker as the Flash were unable to find the back of the net.
After going down a goal, the Flash pressed late in the game, creating one of its best chances in second-half stoppage. Jaelene Hinkle floated a long ball just feet from the goal but neither Edwards nor Camilla Kur could connect on a header.
