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!
The Mass Soccer's Eastern Mass Women's Soccer League (EMWSL) is a non-profit organization that has been in existence for over 20 years. The EMWSL organizes three playing seasons each year: fall, spring, and summer.
D1A finals featured two powerhouse women's teams: Suburban Lightning verses the defending champions, Azzurri. In exciting fashion, Suburban Lightning defeated Azzurri, 5-1 under the lights in Wayland, MA. Both teams played well and all goalies made stellar saves. The speed and skills of Suburban's attacking line was difficult to contain! Congratulations to both teams for a game well played and a successful summer season.
In a defensive battle, D1B powerhouse Dynamis managed to edge out Galway Rovers 1-0. Dynamis in the first half on a beautiful pass from the corner and a one timer just past the keeper. Galways keeper made a lot of great saves to keep the game close. Dynamis' defense kept Galway off the scoreboard despite many chances in the second half. Both teams played hard until the final whistle. Galway is the newest club to join EMWSL and made big waves in their first summer. Looking forward to more great soccer from this club!
Congrats to Dynamis for an undefeated season!
In a tightly contested game, with several scoring opportunities for both teams, the goalies and defensive backs played solid for both teams. The Bandits scored a breakaway goal early and shortly there again with a brilliant cross and header in. Bandits went up 2-0 at halftime. Billerica Balls battled back with a gorgeous shot in the upper right corner, pulling within a goal. With five minutes remaining, the Bandits managed to put an artfully placed long distance shot in the back of the net to ice the game at 3-1. Well done to both teams!
