The Western New York Flash finished a four-game homestand with their third straight win Friday night, defeating the Chicago Red Stars, 2-1, at Sahlen’s Stadium in Rochester.
After falling behind, 1-0, in the 52nd minute on a goal by Chicago’s Lori Chalupny, the Flash responded just two minutes later when Abby Wambach headed in a goal off a high centering pass from defender Brittany Taylor.
Flash captain McCall Zerboni scored her first goal of the season for the game-winner in the 66th minute, again with an assist from Taylor.
The Flash outshot the Red Stars, 18-7. Western New York now will play its next four games on the road, starting June 5 at Boston.
