We are excited to announce the return of our Mass Soccer Metrowest Indoor League at Bosse Sports! The new Women's O30 League kicked off February 21st and played its second week of games this past Sunday.
Our first match of the day, featured Wayland vs the Dragons. The Dragons came out strong early connecting on passes and putting lots of pressure in the Wayland defensive end. A tough Wayland defense and strong goal tending helped keep the Dragons at bay, but only after they were able to net three goals in the first half. The second half showcased more Wayland possession and scoring opportunities, but the stellar keeping of returning goalie "KT", kept Wayland almost scoreless. Wayland's solo goal came from Jen Harding assisted by Amy Migliori. Dragons were able to net one more before the game ended, thus Dragons victorious 4-1.
In our second game, Soccer Sistas took on the powerhouse Dream Team. Soccer SIstas jumped out to an early lead with beautiful goals scored by Sarah Pillemer but Dream Team's defense adjusted and super keeping by Ashley Bertschmann, shut down the Soccer Sistas attacks. In the second half, Dream Team chipped away at the Soccer Sistas 3-0 early lead and with closed within 1 goal with 2 minutes left. Soccer Sista's defense and goal keeping held strong and was able to finish out the win with a 3:2 score.
All teams are 1-1 headed into week 3 of the session.
Great to see the return of soccer to Bosse Sports Center and stay tuned for more updates though out the session.
November 20, 2020: It was a great day for fall soccer in Medford with the BSSL divisional championships at hand. There were 4 games played over the course of the afternoon and all were exciting to watch.
The first game played was the Division 1 championship between the Broadway Gunners and the Kendall Wanderers FC. With barely10 minutes to go in regulation, the Gunners scored the go ahead goal to make the score 2-1 and take home the championship for the top division.
In the other noon game, Inter Boston FC took on Worcester County FC. In the 83', the game was far from decided, as Inter Boston scored and made the game 3-1. There was perseverance and strength to push to goal by both teams, but when the final whistle blew, Inter Boston FC won the Division 3N championship.
In the Division 3S Championship later that afternoon, Kendall Wanderers C took on the Boston Panthers. The Wanderers were the first to strike and made the score 1-0 midway through the first half, but not long before halftime, a Panther's shot from 25 yards out leveled 1-1. In the second half, there was again tight play and when the final whistle blew, no winner could be determined. It took going 6 minutes in the second period of overtime for the golden goal to be scored. Clearly an excellent game by both teams, the Boston Panthers winning the 3S championship 2-1.
The division 2 final was also full of excitement and a lot of scoring. Al Zawraa FC played Boston Siege FC and both teams showed offensive skill and PK shooting prowess. The score was 4-1 at the half, which included 2 Al Zawraa PKs. The scoring did not end there. There was to be a Siege PK, a stunning Al Zawraa header, and 3 more goals in total before the final whistle blew. in the end, the score was Al Zawraa FC 6, Boston Siege 4. Al Zawraa is the Division 2 champion and they'll be among the contenders for promotion to D1 when pro/rel and general normalcy returns to the BSSL next season.
Congratulations to all teams in making a great fall season despite all the obstacles faced. The efforts involved did not go unnoticed and the love of the game truly prevailed.
