The Philly Soccer Page " Final report: WNY Flash 1 – 1 Independence (5-4 in PKs)
In a game worthy of a championship, the Western New York Flash defeated the Philadelphia Independence in a shootout 5-4 after the teams ended 120 minutes of soccer tied at one.
Precluded from playing Sunday due to Hurricane Irene’s pending landfall, the Union have become home-bound spectators. And for the first time all season, Peter Nowak’s club resides somewhere other than the top-three places in the Eastern Conference table.
ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Another chance at Women's Professional Soccer glory. That's all the Independence wanted. They got their chance. They ended up with more disappointment.
Postponing the Union’s Sunday matchup with the New England Revolution to Sept. 7 at PPL Park, helped the squad avoid the wrath of Hurricane Irene. However, the skidding group won’t be able to shed their seasonal turbulence until they get their next win.
