Safira defeated Tarrafal in PKs in the 2017 Amateur State Finals match yesterday afternoon.
On this crisp, cool, December afternoon with the Boston skyline as a backdrop, the USASA Amateur Cup Mass Soccer State Final kicked off at Roberto Clemente Field. Both teams brought passionate supporters and the heated excitement of the game drew in new fans and spectators who could not help but watch the intensity of match up!
Tarrafal was first to score and went up early in the first half 1-0. Safira matched the goal before halftime and the game sat 1-1 at the half. Tarrafal was able to strike again in the second half with another goal which it took Safira until the 81st minute to score the equalizer.
In overtime, Tarrafal had a few good opportunities. The Safira goalie made one beautiful diving save and Tarrafal released one shot that soared just over the crossbar. The OT periods ended with a score remaining 2-2.
PKs were exchanged by both teams. Clutch shooting stayed on target just outside of goalies efforts for several rounds until, Safira goalie made a diving save followed by Safira finishing its next PK. Safira did not miss a shot in the PK rounds.
Congratulations to GPS Omens for their 3-1 victory over Providence City in the BSSL MacKenzie Cup Final!
Congratulations to MSSL's Boston Olympiakos and Boston Ethiopians!!
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).
