The Western New York Flash will look to keep things rolling as it heads to Seattle on Saturday night for the second leg of a home-and-home series with Reign FC. The game will kickoff at 7 p.m. PT/10 p.m. ET at Moda Pitch at Memorial Stadium and both teams enter riding point streaks.

The Flash, who posted a season-high 20 shots in its previous meeting with the Reign, have earned points in five of its last six games, while Seattle is unbeaten in its last seven matches.
In the team’s previous meeting last week, Western New York held the Reign to zero shots in the run of play, with the visitors’ lone attempt coming in the 55th minute when Kim Little scored on a penalty kick. That goal put the Reign up 1-0, but Lynn Williams answered in the 81st minute to level the game at 1-1. Williams was setup by Elizabeth Eddy who, normally a midfielder, was playing at right back. Eddy collected the ball at the top of the penalty box and beat three Seattle defenders before finding fellow rookie Williams open on the far post.
Williams is currently tied for the team lead with three goals, along with fellow first-year player Samantha Mewis. Eddy currently has two goals and two assists on the year.
Chantel Jones, who has started the last four games in goal for Western New York, has allowed just four goals in her 435 minutes with one shutout and a .800 goals against average.
