Western New York Flash announce preseason roster

The Western New York Flash of the National Women's Soccer League released their 27-player preseason roster Monday.

Two home scrimmages -- March 19 and April 2 in Sahlen's Sports Park in Elma -- will help new head coach Paul Riley narrow the field; the first roster cut-down, to 25 players, is March 29, according to The Equalizer.

Keep an eye on the 11 strikers called into camp, as it's clearly a position where several spots are up for grabs.

The Flash begin the 2016 regular season on April 16 in Kansas City, while the first home match at Sahlen Stadium is slated for April 29. The full schedule can be found on the club's website here.

GOALKEEPERS (2): Sabrina D’Angelo, Britt Eckerstrom

DEFENDERS (7): Abby Dahlkemper, Abby Erceg, Jaelene Hinkle, Alanna Kennedy, Laura Liedle, Becca Moros, Courtney Niemiec

MIDFIELDERS (7): Carolina Arias, Halimatu Ayinde, Elizabeth Eddy, Jeon Ga-Eul, Michaela Hahn, Samantha Mewis, Meredith Speck

FORWARDS (11): Dana Costello, Makenzy Doniak, Kristen Hamilton, Taylor Leach, Adriana Leon, Jessica McDonald, Taylor Smith, Lynn Williams, Mallory Weber, Catherine Zimmerman
