Washington Spirit Down Chicago Red Stars in Overtime, 2-1
Victory Sends Spirit to NWSL Championship Match in Houston on October 9
In one of the most exciting matches of the season, and the only one that required overtime to name a winner, the second-seeded Washington Spirit downed the third-place Chicago Red Stars on Friday night by a score of 2-1. The Spirit's first home playoff game after two of them on the road proved gave them just enough of an edge over Chicaago after losing to the same team in the Windy City just a week earlier. It was sweet revenge for the loss in that one that knocked the Spirit out of first place in the NWSL table.
On Sunday evening the Portland Thorns will take on the Western NewYork Flash in Portland to determine the Spirit's opponent in the NWSL Championship match, to be held at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston on Sunday, October 9 at 5 p.m. ET. If you can't be there, the game will be televised on FOX Sports 1.
BRYC Celebrates 50 Years of Service to Families in the Community
Check out pictures from the event...
Founded by a small group of parents in 1966, playing but a single sport, BRYC has grown to be one of the preeminent youth sports clubs in Fairfax County, now having served over 175,000 families playing soccer, football, flag football, basketball, cheer, volleyball, or softball.
On Saturday, July 30th we celebrated our history at Robinson Secondary School, with games, prizes, inflatables, a dunk tank, adult/alumni games for each of the BRYC sports, and special guests.
CLICK HERE to see pictures and a write-up about the event.
We're looking forward to the next 50 years and more!
BRYC Survives Thanks to Volunteers; Won't You Join Us?
As Little As a Few Hours Or As Much as a Season (or Ten!) Are Much Appreciated
BRYC Recreational Soccer wouldn't exist without the dedication of its volunteers. Our coaches are the most visible, and without them we would certainly have no program, but the more than two dozen members of the Executive Committee (EXCOM) work year-round to keep the organization running smoothly.
After over 15 years of service to BRYC, Ralph Schuetz is hanging up his cleats…or whatever it is that Webmasters hang up…and calling it quits. His last story and photos for the web site are the recap of this year’s highly successful FPYC All Star Tournament.
Ralph’s staying around long enough to train his replacement over the summer months and consult as needed during the fall season, but he and his wife, both long-since retired, do a lot of traveling and it’s been harder and harder to always keep the web site up to date. The job doesn’t require more than five to ten hours a week at most, but it is a constant and ongoing need. The position needs to be filled immediately.
Interested volunteers should contact the Commissioner, James Sullivan, at email@example.com, or contact Ralph at BRYCStars@aol.com.
D.C. United Heading North to NYCFC and NY Red Bulls
Only a few more home games for the Black-and-Red
NYCFC WILD FINISH: D.C. United and their fans are likely not happy about the way the game turned out, but it was a thrilling finish for NYCFC, their fans and neutral viewers. While the majority of the match lacked the intensity seen in the best MLS games, the final 15 minutes were a rollercoaster, as the teams alternated between taking the lead and tying up the game in quick succession.
36' – DC – Lloyd Sam (Patrick Nyarko, Luciano Acosta)
79' -- NYC -- David Villa
85' -- NYC -- Frank Lampard (David Villa, Khiry Shelton)
91' -- DC -- Lamar Neagle (Julian Buescher)
93' -- NYC -- Frank Lampard (Khiry Shelton)
There are only a few more games left to see at RFK Stadium this season so get your tickets and enjoy the play on the pitch!
