Week Fourteen : Epic

After defeating the more talented Pink Ladies U14 team in an overtime thriller on Sunday, Dream Team FC coach Ken Kohlberg could muster only one word: epic. Indeed it was. Although the Pink Ladies lost a game they coulda, woulda and truly shoulda, heads were held high after the team fought fiercely despite the absences of its most influential March player ... read more

Week Thirteen : Penultimate

Winning can be quantified in different ways: Score more goals than your opponent so as to have a higher total at the end of the game. The U11 team accomplished that in this week's semifinal match against Arlington, winning their way into the finals 5-3 behind an outstanding team effort in which five of six players scored goals and the sixth player added ... read more

Week Twelve : Character

Occasionally this beautiful game presents the unusual, the previously unseen or the downright ridiculous. Sport serves as multiple microcosms of life itself -- emotions and lessons in nearly every touch, pass and goal. This weekend's games provided ample example of sport revealing character. Match of the Week: The U13 team has the junior program's largest ... read more

Week Eleven : Back to Class

Pink players put on some classy displays, with the half the team's having been off for a fortnight. The most remarkable reunion was that of the U12 side and its coach -- with Haley returning to the touchlines for a Saturday matinee and a Sunday sunrise. The girls responded as if on an episode of a starry Hollywood talent search. Loads of moves, buckets of ... read more

Week Ten : All in favor

They're not national champions. The U18 side lost in the national semifinals; just the second time ever (and first since 2008) that a Pink Ladies team has reached that stage. It was truly a team effort, with players of all ages, positions and levels raising their play ... Captain Katie Schmidt, still sorta-kinda held together with duct tape and rubber ... read more

Week Nine : Goals on Sunday

A plethora of goals were scored on Sunday as the senior teams no doubt aimed their scopes at the all-time single-season record. The GHS team waited until after half-time to finish, spotting JP Blazers a firm 4-1 half-time lead but repatriating itself at the interval to win 8-6. The side was led by Senior Player of the Week Emma Matteson, whose intensity ... read more

Week Eight : Meant to be Broken

With three goals in the first half of Sunday's league semifinal against Scorpions SC, Caoilin Rice joined Katie Abbott as only the second player in club history to score 100 goals.  On the season the skillful redhead has 22 goals and is charging toward not only the club's all-time goal-scoring lead of 103 -- which is almost certain to shatter this Sunday -- ... read more

Week Six : Storming the Storm

Coach Rabies' U11 team played an inspired game against the Cambridge Storm last week but struggled to finish and lost a one-goal nail-biter. The same sides met against on Saturday in a league consolation match and an enthusiastic Pink team played wonderful futsal. The team played as a complete unit and won 5-1, with all seven girls contributing either a goal ... read more

Week Five : Un-Bia-lievable!

The U18 side gifted the powerful Newton Ninjas an early pair of goals on Sunday. But then Pink's new secret weapon -- Gabriella "Bia" Silva -- resumed her hot streak, toe-ing home her team's first goal and then assisting once and scoring three times in six minutes to close the half and level the match at five. Not often does the Pink bench break out ... read more

Week Four: Happy New Year!

The calendar turned from 12 to 13, but the Pink season saw more of the same -- lots of excitement, passion and goals! The most thrilling game of the weekend was surely the U13 team's showdown with Charlestown, which teetered back and forth for 48 minutes -- neither team trailing or leading by more than a goal. While the entire U13 team stepped up huge, it ... read more
