(July 13, 2016) - The Boston Breakers came out on top, claiming the championship trophy at the SCORES Cup corporate charity tournament, held Saturday, July 9, at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass.
The co-ed 7v7 tournament, which was founded in 2005, saw a record 40 teams compete this year. The Boston Breakers, competing for the first time, went undefeated in seven grueling matches over the course of eight hours, culminating in a finals victory over Bernstein Wealth Management in the First Division final. Along the way, the Breakers dispatched the Boston Red Sox front office by a score of 6-3.
All proceeds from the SCORES Cup benefit America SCORES Boston, the Official Education Partner of the Breakers, a non-profit formed in 1999 that provides after school soccer and academic enrichment programs to more than 1,400 youth in the city of Boston. Saturday’s SCORES Cup raised $300,000.
“It was a long but fun day, and to cap it off with the win in the final was great. I haven’t played that much soccer in years and we were all feeling it when it came to the final. We played and won seven games and it was a truly awesome experience to play at Gillette,” Boston Breakers marketing and design director Seve Hirst said. “Our team was made up of Breakers front office staff, academy and clinic coaches, some representatives from our sponsorship partners and friends.”
The Breakers team featured Hirst, John Power, Jamie Gillis, Charlotte Jenson, Leanne Champ, Julianne Herrity, Sean Napier, Alex MacPherson, Alex Fletcher, Paul Mallen, Tom Ballenthin, Ashley Robinson, and Jen Robinson.
“America SCORES is a charity that the Boston Breakers are behind and support because of the amazing work they do,” Hirst added. “Thank you to them and the Revolution Charitable Foundation for putting on this event. And thank you to the Breakers Co-Managing Partner John Power for entering the team and for pulling off some great saves as the team’s goalkeeper."
