On Saturday night, at Tibbetts Brooke Park Field in Yonkers, NY, Southie FC was defeated 0-2 by Lansdowne Bhoys FC in the Regional 1 Amateur cup match. It was a tough road game against a strong rival. The Boys in Neon represented Massachusetts State Soccer well.
"So proud of these guys. The passion, commitment & team first attitude was first class. And a BIG thank you to all the fans, family and friends who showed up. Your support was truly amazing!” - Sean Bakhtiari
Congrats to Southie FC for an exciting Amateur Cup Tournament.
The men's bracket was exciting and thrilling, match after match. Each game showcased highly skilled players with a true passion for soccer. The veterans of Lexington Eagles kept each match close, while SVU, Playwright, New England FC, and Future all battled to see who would make it to the finals against undefeated Safira. It should be noted that the men in green, Playwright, came the closest to containing Safira, holding them to a 1-0 victory with Safira scoring in the last minutes of the game.
It was, however, the men of SVU who fended off all other teams and earned another shot at Safira in the finals. SVU put forth a valiant effort with good defense and pure tenacity. But Safira's ability to spread the field and complete the extra pass opened the game up after their 3rd goal. The Safira men demonstrated artistic passing, great foot skills, team play, and most of all a passion for the game of soccer. Safira prevailed in the men's final 7-0.
Team Future gets an honorable mention for moments of brilliance on the field and true entertainment off the field.
***Individual highlight of the tourney goes to Safira's Hermann Souto for his bicycle kick shot on net!! ***
Thank you to all players and teams who participated this weekend. We hope you enjoyed an exciting and enjoyable day of soccer.
What an exciting morning of amazing competition!! Mass Spirit and Last Call headed into the finals after tying their last regular game 1-1. These highly competitive, very skilled teams continued their battle in the final game by alternating goals, until the final whistle blew with a score of 4-4. Then on to PKs!
In penalty kicks, both teams scored 3 out of 5 goals with artfully placed shots, several landing in the upper corners. Goalies, Shannon Stranzl (Mass Spirit) and Brooke Freeburg (Last Call), both made amazing saves to keep their teams alive. The match continued on to sudden death PKs, which led to 2 alternating cross bar shots and one post. Last Call's Brittany Schandelmayer then struck a nicely placed lower corner ball which just streaked by the diving Mass Spirit goalie.
In the 3rd verses 4th place game, Havoc faced off against Still Kicking. Although Still Kicking's superstar goalie had to leave early, the team still liked their chances with their "Replacement Goalie" looking to avenge an earlier 0-2 loss to Havoc earlier that day. The game started out close with great shots by both teams. But Havoc's passing, fantastic foot skills, and well placed shots were just too much for the veteran team of Still Kicking. Havoc prevailed with an honorable mention to their goalie who bravely blocked several of Still Kicking power shooters!
Congratulations to all teams for well played and highly competitive games. Spectators were in awe of the skill and teamwork exhibited in all of the women's games.
