Congratulations to Southie FC for defeating Dorchester United (4-0) in the USASA Amateur Cup State Finals yesterday. It was a well played game by both teams.
The first half was evenly matched, with both teams trading possession. A well placed corner kick, led to a Southie goal shortly before the half. In the second half, Dorchester came back strong and gained momentum with an artfully lifted shot that drifted just inches too high as it clanged off the crossbar.
Southie responded with continuous offensive pressure leading to breakaways. Their excellent passing in the Dorchester eighteen, led to Southie goals, putting the game just out of reach for Dorchester.
We congratulate both teams on a game well played and wish Southie FC luck in Regionals next spring. Bring Massachusetts home a National Championship!!
