In the 19th minute, Sky Blue FC failed to clear a free kick out of their 18-yard box and Samantha Mewis made them pay with a header to double the lead.
Less than five minutes later, Lynn Williams redirected a cross in the box to put the Flash up 3-0.
McDonald scored her second of the half during stoppage time when she pounced on a header off the post.
US National player Kelley O’Hara put Sky Blue on the scoreboard in the 54th minute, but Michaela Hahn sent a rocket into the top shelf in the 61st minute giving the Flash their fifth goal of the game.
The WNY Flash are now 3-3-0 this season. Next, they will take on the Boston Breakers on Friday, May 27th at Sahlen’s Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7pm.
