Elin Eklund's second-half goal gave the Rochester Lady Lancers a 2-1 victory over the Western New York Saturday evening and eliminated the Flash from playoff qualification in United Women's Soccer.
Carisima Cutrona (University at Buffalo) scored in the 11th minute for the Flash on a feed from Jenna Raepple (Grand Island) a minute after Carolina Kopp had scored for Rochester.
The Flash finished its season at 5-5, losing all five home games at D'Youville College;s Dobson Field.
Even with a victory, WNY faced long odds of making the playoffs. Buffalo would have needed the Connecticut Fusion to lose its game today at last-place Worcester to qualify for the East Conference championship game against Inferno Rush in Tuesday at Millersville (Pa.) University.
