Abby Wambach will be back from her stint with the U.S. Nationals, and Vicky Losada and Sonia Bermudez are back from the Spanish team for the Western New York Flash’s Mother’s Day matinee against Sky Blue FC of New Jersey at 3 p.m. in Sahlen’s Stadium in Rochester.
The Flash (2-1-1), however, will still be without Carli Lloyd, who will be serving the second and final game of her Women’s Professional Soccer League suspension, and midfielder Samantha Kerr and goalie Lydia Williams will be unavailable for about three weeks because of their obligations to the Australian national team in AFC Asian Cup play. Sky Blue FC is 1-2-3 on the season.
Goalkeeper Kelsey Wys is expected to make her professional debut in place of Williams and the Flash have called up amateur goalkeeper DiDi Haracic, a recent graduate of Loyola (Md.) University.
After today, WNY will be on the road for three straight games, returning Saturday, May 31 to face the expansion Houston Dash.
