Posted by Mike Marshall on March 2, 2009

The Boston Breakers are back!

Nearly five years after the WUSA ceased operations, the new Boston-based WPS team with the same name took to the field at the Harvard University Practice bubble on Sunday.  While many of the “name” players were off playing for their respective National Teams, Head Coach Tony DiCicco was able to put the team through their paces in a spirited training session that lasted more than an hour.
