Boston Breakers gain new forward!

Here is a quick blog post (sorry I haven’t been blogging here for a while).

According to the Nwsl website (http://www.nwslsoccer.com) the Boston Breakers have just got a new player signed to their side for next years nwsl! Who is it? Suzanne Pires a forward player from Brazil. This former reserve player who has already played for the Boston Breakers as a reserve has already in the wpsl scored 6 goals and if that wasn’t enough assisted with 6 other goals too in the wpsl and is a very good player and a popular player within the team!
She has been playing in football leagues such as the Sao Paulo Futsal championship league way back in 2005.

Boston coaches have said that they spotted her earlier this year as she stood out from all other in the try outs and put her in the reverse team where she has improved massively and now is ready to play with the main team!

Red stars vs Boston Breakers 4-1

Luck is not on the Boston Breakers side this season as the Red Stars beat them 4-1 on Sunday. The first goal of the game came in just 20 minutes as DiBernardo played a corner into the box which was tapped away by the Boston Breakers goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher but just three minutes after this close call a Second corner kick which bounced off the heads of the heads of the Red star players right to where Wenino was who managed to pass it into the net.
It was in the 35 minutes of the match that Boston Breakers got back into the swing of things and from a penalty kick from a handball made by Samantha Johnson who was trying to block the ball Lianne Sanderson was trying to cross… This penalty kick made by Heather O’Reilly would see Boston level out the score board.

Both team were looking strong and either team could have snatched the lead again in the last couple minutes of the first half but both teams couldn’t get the ball in the net.

It was evident that the Red stars in the second half of the game were the strongest team and dominated play. 50 minutes into the game Leon passed the ball to Loy who managed to dribble the ball close enough to the goal to make a shot which landed in the bottom right hand corner of the net.
then only 7 minutes later Hoy manages to snatch the ball of Boston Breakers Cat Whitehill passing it over to Dibernardo who slipped it into Chalupny who managed to quickly passes it into the back of the net. This made the score 3-1.

It was now the 85th minute of the game another goal would surely put the last nail int he coffin for the Breakers and that’s what the Red stars did. Bywaters collected the ball off a bad corner kick as Alyssa Mautz cleared it to Bywaters who was then able to run up field with the ball, dribbling past Naeher and placing the ball in the back of the net as most of the Boston Breakers team watched helplessly behind her.
Boston tried there best and went on the offensive putting more players upfront but it wasn’t enough.

The red stars next game will be against Houston Dash on 23rd of May and then they will be taking on New jersey on 28th of May.

Boston beat Harvard

Harvard are no match for the Breakers!

Boston Breakers are just seeming to be getting better and better as things start to close in till the start of the nwsl season. On Wednesday the breakers were up against Harvard and won 4-1 with four different goalscorers! Who scored then? well… Katie Schoepfer, Joanna Lohman, Mollie Pathman and Cat Whitehill all got a goal in the match!
#Tom drukin who coaches the Breakers said that he wanted to see what the younger rookie players could do in the first half of the game and then in the second half the more experienced players could come out and destroy Harvard.

It didn’t start out to good for the breakers at first as they made a few silly mistakes which in the end let in a goal as Jami Kranich who once was in the college academy team for the Breakers managed to bring the score to Harvard’s favor … It would take to the 45 th minute for the Breakers to even out the score board with Pathman’s fine goal played to her by wood. Pathman played the entire game and kept up good pace and really proved herself as a key player in the breakers team.

The second breakers goal was in the 47th minute of the match by Whitehill which was done through fast reactions on a loose ball in the penalty area.

Joanna Lohman grabbed her first preseason goal on Wednesday when it came to the 57th minute helped created by a cross in made by Pathman… then all most straight away on the 60th minute of the match the 4th and final goal was put in by Schoepfer putting the final nail int he coffin for Harvard.

Another win for a NWSL team is just showing how much talent is in this seasons teams and how much better the players are compared to college players… some may just call these games just a tiny bit unfair and pointless because we always know who is going to win.. the pros of course!

Nkem Ezurike Joins Breakers!

Its always good to see new fresh players get started in pro womens soccer… the more the merrier whatever side I say!

Lets welcome Nkem Ezurike to the Boston Breakers, I have not seen them personally play before but you cant really argue with what they have achieved in college soccer anyway!

Boston Breaker have another forward on their hands in the form of Canadian Nkem Ezurike for the upcoming season of NWSL.
And it looks like Boston will be hoping to use her as she was their first draft pick from the college draft.
Picked because of good she is having noted up at University of Michigan’s womens soccer team a total of 49 goals she has played in the semi finals of the MAC Herman cup she is going to be taking her first leap into pro womens soccer very soon as she joins the Boston Breakers.. the first game the Bsoton Breakers will be playing against twill be Seattle Reign on April 13th!

I presume that we are all looking forward to seeing exactly what Ezurike will bring to the table!

It is currently unsure when exactly she will be joining the team, if at the start of the season or later on because of visa and other things needing to be sorted out…..but I guess that Is just a formality.
