Weekend will Mark First Matches in UWS Era

LONG ISLAND, NY (May 12, 2017) --- The Western New York Flash are kicking off the United Women’s Soccer era this weekend as they travel to the New York City area to take on the Long Island Rough Riders and New York Surf in a pair of matches.

The new-look Flash team will present the opportunity for former Western New York Flash Academy players to reunite and play together when they return from school for the summer. Maddie Pezzino (Florida State), Syndey Cerza (St. Bonaventure), and Alana Rossi {Canisius) are all former Academy players who will suit up for the UWS side this weekend.

Canisius College has a team-leading three current players or alumni playing for the Flash this weekend. Goalkeepers Meg Tock and Rossi will join forward Maddie Good on the roadtrip.

The new-look Flash will also feature a contingent of Flash Academy Coaches and former collegiate players on the team. Brittany Heist, Jenna Raepple and Kelsey Ferguson will all suit up for the Flash on the opening weekend.

The tilt against the Rough Riders will kick off on Satruday at 5:00 ET before the team faces a quick turnaround for Sunday's 2:00 ET match against the Surf.

The Flash will return home next weekend to take on the New York Surf at All-High Stadium. Tickets can be purchased here.

Updates from the two matches this weekend will be available on Twitter at @WNYFlash.
