WNY Flash Upsets Portland, Earns Trip to Championship

BUFFALO, NY - The Bills weren't the only ones with a huge road win over the weekend. The WNY Flash beat the Portland Thorns 4-3 in the NWSL semifinals. They now advance to the championship next Sunday. 

"I think we had a 5% chance when the season started to get to the finals so here we are with a 5% chance," Flash head coach Paul Reily said. 

Flash forward Lynn Williams was the hero of the day. Her two goals in extra time gave the Flash the win. 

"I don't think a lot of people thought we were going to win but we have a lot of heart so don't count us out," Flash foward Lynn Williams said. 

WNY will now play the Washington Spirit in the championship in Houston, Texas on Sunday, October 9th. Kick-off is scheduled for 5pm.
