Kelly Parker and Veronica Boquete deserve very high kudos as they guided the Buffalo Flash to the 2010 W-League Championship tonight in Santa Clarita, California. The Flash defeated the Vancouver Whitecaps 3-1. It took 57 minutes before the first goal was scored as Amy Vermeulan rocketed in a shot off of a poor Buffalo defensive play. But the Flash responded in full force. In the 61? Kelly Parker burst into the box and set up Gemma Davidson’s goal. Then just three minutes later, Boquete made it 2-1 as she split two Vancouver defenders. Finally, in the 87? Parker again found space and slipped a ball behind to Boquete for the Flash’s third goal of the game.
Boquete was named W-League Championship MVP.
