The WNY Flash returned to Buffalo with a trophy in tow and a welcome fit for champions.
Fans lined the lobby of the Buffalo Niagara International Airport to see their newly crowned soccer team.
The Flash won the NWSL title one day before in perhaps the most dramatic fashion imaginable. Seconds away from losing in the 124th minute, league MVP Lynn Williams headed home a cross from Jessica McDonald to tie the game 2-2. In the following penalty kicks, Flash goalie Sabrina D’Angelo stopped three shots as the Flash topped Washington 4-3.
