A VIEW FROM THE FORT By Jim Dow

Although the “official” attendance read well in excess of 12,000 it is hard to believe there were half that many hardy folks sitting and standing in last Saturday’s sodden conditions when the Revolution and the goal posts held the Fire’s feet to the fire for a deserved 2-0 victory. And while this display may have helped to some degree to erase the ignominy of giving up three goals in twelve minutes to a third division side at mid-week one has to wonder if both the positive or negative exploits of New England’s soccer team are like a solitary tree falling in the forest or one hand clapping? Besides the devoted and quite marvelous few that show up rain or shine, win, lose or draw to Gillette Stadium, the Banshee Pub and post on Big Soccer, does anyone in metro Boston and beyond really care about this club?

Breakers Rally for Point

Posted by tonybiscaia on May 27, 2011

By Julian Cardillo

Allston, MA- An early second half goal by Lauren Cheney salvaged a point for the Breakers in yesterday’s 1-1 draw against the Philadelphia Independence. The Breakers had the better of the play for most of the game, but a defensive lapse late in the first half caused a goal and forced them to fight for a tie before trying for the win.

“First half we got in behind them before they got in behind us,” said Cheney. “We were dominating at times, but that’s where we had opportunities. That’s where we have to finish, we all had opportunities.”

Buehler: Right Place, Right Time

Posted by tonybiscaia on May 2, 2011

By Julian Cardillo

Boston, MA- The Boston Breakers cruised to their first home victory of the season on Sunday night, beating Sky Blue FC 1-0 off a second half goal by Rachel Buehler.  Buehler, who played the entire match in central defense, also helped the Breakers grab their first shutout of the season.

“I thought the defense played well for the whole 90 minutes,” said goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher, who made three saves on the night.  “They’ve got a lot of great attacking personalities.  I thought the defense did a really good job of containing them and did well to keep their chances at a minimum and shutting them down.”

Cambridge – the Boston Breakers defeated the Washington Freedom 3-1 last night in front of 4,468 fans at Harvard Stadium, moving into third place in the WPS standings just five points behind the second place Philadelphia Independence.

Entering the match, the Breakers had dominated the Freedom this season, winning twice and drawing once against the DC soccer club. It only took 19 minutes for Boston to begin dominating the Freedom again when English International Kelly Smith scored to put the home team up. On a 35-yard freekick from Amy LePeilbet Smith headed in a loose header that deflected off of Jordan Angeli in front of goal, scoring her team leading seventh goal of the season.

GOLD PRIDE GLIDE BY BREAKERS

Posted by tonybiscaia on July 22, 2010

By Julian Cardillo

Cambridge- The Boston Breakers saw their three match winning streak come to halt on Wednesday evening when the team fell against the San Francisco Bay Area’s FC Gold Pride 2-1. A home crowd of 3,052 saw the Breakers lose against the current league leaders, who now move to 34 points with a 13 point cushion between them and the second place Philadelphia Independence.

The Breakers on the other hand are in the thick of the pack, currently second to last in the league standings but just 1 point from the playoffs.

“We’re still in the hunt,” said Breakers Head Coach Tony DiCicco, “but I think this is a game we really could have gotten a result from. We felt confident going in and we’re disappointed.”

Boston didn’t show their confidence in the beginning stages of the game again yet managed to score first, a reversal of recent scoring patterns that would eventually backfire on them.

BOSTON, Mass. – It’s no secret that Breakers coach Tony DiCicco has not been thrilled with the officiating this season.

  • At various points through his post-match press conferences, the Breakers’ coach has regularly hinted at his dismay with WPS match officials.

  • But after seeing Kristine Lilly and Kelly Smith – two of team’s best players – get thrown around like rag dolls during the team’s 1-1 draw to Washington Sunday night, DiCicco went off.

    Rebecca Moros scored for Washington in the 33rd minute, while Alex Scott tallied the lone Boston goal in the 49th minute.

    “I think this was the highest-level game we’ve played in,” said coach Tony DiCicco. “I thought both teams did some really good things early.”

    Indeed, from the opening whistle, both teams surged forward with ease while the defending attempted to keep up the fast-paced attacking.
