The Rhinos had a bad weekend after a pair of 1-0 losses while the WNY Flash had a great debut in Boston in a 2-1 win.
With the Rhinos not scoring a goal and not getting a point, it's hard to pick out a player that looked really good. But, it sounds like maybe JC Banks and Andrew Hoxie might be getting more playing time this weekend in Dayton.
On the Flash side, you have to like what you saw from a whole host of players from the big names (Alex Morgan and Christine Sinclair) to the not so big names (Gemma Davison) and the solid players that you expected to come up big (Ali Riley, Caroline Seger, Ashlyn Harris, and Becky Edwards).
Add in that Marta and Maurine landed in Buffalo yesterday, and things appear to be getting even better for the Flash.
