“The goals were special. I’m proud of this team’s performance,” Flash coach Aaran Lines said.
Mewis got things started in the 51st minute on a beautiful counter attack. She was played in by Eddy who had received a beautiful switching pass by Eddy. Mewis ran on and cut to the left before unleashing a shot to give the Flash the lead.
The match remained tight until the 72nd minute when Fields again started the play, this time sending a straight ball to Williams who found Eddy in the penalty area. Eddy took a touch and then beat Michele Dalton to make it 2-0.
Fields took matters into her own hands for the third goal, lifting a 30-foot blast over several defenders and Dalton to make it 3-0.
The Red Stars score one in stoppage time. Chantel Jones stopped Vanessa DiBernardo’s penalty but Huerta scored on a scramble following the ensuing corner kick.
The Red Stars (4-1-3, 15 pts) remain in first place ahead of the World Cup break while the Flash (3-3-1, 10 pts) have won two straight to reach .500 for the first time this season.
