Boston Breakers Pose for Fans

This past weekend we planned to take in a Boston Breakers Women’s Soccer game at Harvard Stadium after strolling through the Cambridge River Festival.  It seemed like a great plan given that our kids are both art and soccer fans.

The Boston Breakers play at Harvard Stadium which is just across the Cambridge line in the Brighton/Allston area of Boston.  It is quite walkable from the Charles River which is where we were for the festival.  It is also a short walk from Harvard Square.  You do have to be pretty careful crossing Memorial Drive and Storrow Drive.

Though we were looking for something more adventurous we ended up eating dinner at Pizzeria Uno’s at Harvard Square.  All of the smaller restaurants were quite packed even with the drizzle that was falling off and on through the late afternoon probably due to the Cambridge River Festival.

After dinner we walked over to Harvard Stadium where we were disappointed to find that the game with St. Louis had been canceled.  More specifically the St. Louis team had forfeited because the owner had decided to pack it in.  Due financial problems the St. Louis Athletica team folded so their games were canceled.  My husband had put the Boston Breakers schedule in his planner when it first came out so we were not aware about the change.

Interestingly enough there were enough Boston Breakers fans in the same boat.  The Boston Breakers put on a mini soccer camp for those that showed up for the game or had purchased tickets.  You could meet the players at the gym near the stadium.  My kids got a kick out of it as they hit soccer balls into a target.  Cabot was also there giving out free samples of their cheese.  Of course we would have liked to see a game but the kids enjoyed themselves.

It turns out the Boston Breakers were able to benefit from the folding of the St. Louis team.  They were able to sign Lindsay Tarpley who became available as a free agent.  According to the World Soccer Reader she is a proven goal scorer so this may help the Boston Breakers improve their record.  They lead the league in ties so hopefully Lindsay will bring in more wins.

The Boston Breakers will be home this weekend at Harvard Stadium.  They will be playing the New Jersey Sky Blue FC team.  We’re hoping to be able to catch that game on Sunday.  Check the Boston Breakers Schedule for more information.
