On September 10, 2017 at Ceylon Park, Dorchester, Dinamo FC took on Raiz CV in the 2017 NELASA Emilio Raposo Cup.
Dinamo FC scored an early goal at about 15 into the first half, taking the lead. Raiz CV scored a matching goal 15 minutes later to put the score at 1-1 and this score held until half time. A few minutes into the second half, Raiz CV score their second goal taking the lead for the first time. Then in dramatic fashion, Dinamo managed to net the tying goal at the end of the second half making the score 2-2, and forcing the game to the 30 minutes over time, 15 minutes each half.
Again, Raiz CV score the third goal very early in the start of OT. Then yet again, Dinamo scored in the last minute of the second half OT, forcing the game to be decided on penalty shots.
Dinamo FC was able to convert more PKs, thus is the winner of the NELASA EMILIO RAPOSO CUP.
The romance of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup hinges on the little guys taking on the pros; part-time amateurs getting the chance to compete 11v11 against full-time paid professionals. Mass Soccer's very own GPS Omen's of the Bay State Soccer League, led by Harris Smriko, Greg Zuboff and Jake Edwards, advanced to the third round of the competition. They defeated two semi-pro clubs along the way before narrowly falling 2-1 in the final seconds on the road to professional side Rochester Rhinos of the USL. It was their third road game of the tournament. In the first and second rounds Omens defeated PDL side GPS Portland Phoenix 2-0 and outlasted Boston City FC of the NPSL 2-1.
Despite their status as amateurs, the self-proclaimed "white-collar squad" -- all whom work full-time jobs and play on the weekends -- showed why the U.S. Open Cup can produce such memorable moments. And while GPS Omens fell just short of a third consecutive "cupset", leading goalscorer Keith Caldwell looked back at the run with pride. "I think we showed we can compete at this level. Our goal next year will be to take it one step further, though we know it won't be easy. It's a great group of guys, and we're all such good friends off the field. I think it helps us on the field as well."
The Rochester Rhinos, who knocked out Mass Soccer's Southie FC in the 2016 U.S. Open Cup, fell to the New England Revolution in the Fourth Round in Providence, RI. The Cup Final is set for Wednesday, September 20 at 9:00 p.m. between Sporting KC (MLS) and NY Red Bulls (MLS). It will be televised live on ESPN.
In the 3rd annual Mass Soccer Champions Cup, an invitational-only tournament between Mass Soccer's top performing men's teams in every Mass Soccer league, Safira of the OTHSL defeated USAfrica's Mosteiro FM in a thrilling overtime match.
Safira reached the finals via a 3-0 win over Albania SC in the semifinals and a 6-1 victory over Team Iraq in the quarterfinals. Mosteiro, on the other hand, slipped past GPS Omens 1-0 in the semifinals and won via technicality in the quarterfinals over Kel Kau.
In the Cup final on August 6, the game was sent into extra time after the first 90 minutes ended 2-2. In the dying minutes of extra time, Safira scored twice in the 119th and 120th minutes to seal the victory and claim the 2017 Mass Soccer Champions Cup. The win awards them with a coveted automatic bye to the 2017 Mass Soccer USASA Amateur Cup Qualifying final. Previous competition winners include Dorchester United (2016) and Tarrafal FC (2015).
From the sidelines of the EMWSL Summer Championship series.... EMWSL is proud to report that we have our 2017 champions!!
With the Eastern Mass Women's Soccer League (EMWSL) summer season recently coming to a close, a special shout goes out to the women's teams who have recently earned summer league titles.
In Division 1A, the Suburban Lightning defeated league powerhouse Azzuri 5-1 in an action-packed final in Wayland, MA. Goalkeepers from both sides made several highlight-worthy saves but Suburban Lightning's offense was too difficult to contain on the night.
In division 1B, undefeated Dynamis edged Galway Rovers 1-0 in a more defensive-minded match. But despite falling in the final, Galway have their heads held high having competed valiantly in their very first season in the EMWSL and look poised for continues success in future competitions.
In the Division 2/3 final, Bandits earned a 3-1 victory over Billerica Balls 3-1 to claim the summer title. Congratulations to all players, coaches and staff on a very successful summer season!
