Boston Brakers Travels to Vermont!
Four members of the Boston Brakers journeyed up to Vermont on October 26 to compete and to support our northern mentors as the University of Vermont at Burlington celebrated disability awareness month. The competition was fierce as we drew to a 1-1 tie in the first game. In the second game Joe and Matt heated up for some scoring and Karen continued in net from the first game into the second game to hold onto a 3 to 2 victory; the first victory we’ve had against Vermont. We are all thankful for the hospitality and coaching advice the team from Vermont provided. We are also thankful to their sponsor, Home Medical, who generously lent us a Hoyer lift so that we could spend the night.
Third Annual Boston Power Soccer Tournament
On Sunday, October 12 the Boston Brakers hosted its annual Boston Power Soccer Tournament at the Melnea Cass Athletic Complex in Roxbury. Seven teams competed which included a team from Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Montréal, and three from Massachusetts. Attendance was estimated at approximately 200. Thank you to our many sponsors that included the Boston Police Athletic League, the Baptist Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Wentworth Institute for Technology, Boloco, Mike’s Donuts and likely others who we will recognize later.
