FC Buffalo Women begin season with 6-0 win

Marcy Barberic’s return to FC Buffalo was three goals to the good as the hat trick hero helped lead a 6-0 win over Flower City 1872 in Rochester on Saturday.

Carissima Cutrona had a goal and an assist in the win, which helps Nikki Bartholomew’s side start their defense of the East Division with a 1-0 record.

Barberic’s haul gives her 10 goals in an FC Buffalo jersey. Only six other players in club history have scored 10 goals: Cutrona, Kendell McFayden, Andy Tiedt, Akean Shackleford, Kelsey Araujo, and Mike Unwin.

Also scoring for FCB were Laura Bogner and Morgan Kulniszewski, with Sarah Woods collecting an assist and Shea Vanderbosch posting a clean sheet between the sticks.
