10 games played, 10 games won, 40 goals scored and 30 points earnt rewards Boston Breakers Reserves at the top of the New England region. Their impressive and undefeated season pushes them through to the East Division Championship play-offs.
The Boston Breakers Reserves are the development squad for the Boston Breakers first team who compete in the National Women’s Soccer league. Thus, the Reserves roster includes a selection of highly talented female soccer players who are not only playing to win the WPSL National Championship, but also hoping to advance into the Boston Breakers 1st team.
With its credibility as a strong and fierce team, most of their opponents played more defensively against them. Head Coach, Francesco D’Agostino said,
“Most teams sit in and play defensively against us but I would say the toughest game we faced this year was in Maine.”
Alongside head coach D’Agostino stood his experienced assistant coach, Davor Dvanajscak and Doc Simpson. The coaching staff worked hard to ensure the girls played with a possession based style that would make them unstoppable. They set goals to a growth mindset where mistakes are learning opportunities, and those mistakes would be used to improve their game. In addition to their learning philosophy, the team committed themselves to 7am’s every morning to training intensely and make them the best possible players and team they could be.
As the Boston Breakers Reserves look to defend the regional and national championship they will be traveling to Philly to play either at Penn Fusion or Philly Fever’s home field. They are confident that given an enough time to prepare, they will be a tough opponent for any team they have to face.
Co-Founder of the WPSL, Jerry Zanelli said, “The Boston Breakers Reserves are an exceptional team to have in the WPSL. They bring quality female soccer players that have ambitions to play at a professional level. I am delighted they have reached the East Division play-offs and wish them the best of luck going forward.”
