We know that your life is busy.
So, we at New England Soccer Today decided to make your life simpler by creating a one-stop, no-frills forum highlighting what went down in New England soccer during the past week and allow you to catch up on anything you may have missed.
Without further ado, here’s a snapshot of what happened during the past week:
Sunday, Dec. 4
The Revolution 16s and 18s both fell by the score of 3-0 to the Chicago Fire youth squads during their second games of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy Winter Showcase in Sarasota, Fla.
Later in the day, UConn fell in penalties 4-2 to tournament Cindarella UNC-Charlotte after the schools were knotted at one through two OTs. The 49ers continued their winning ways on Friday by upsetting Creighton to earn a trip to tomorrow’s tournament final against in-state rival UNC.
Monday, Dec. 5
The Revolution used their second spot in Stage 1 of the Re-entry Draft to select former Rhody Ram Danleigh Borman. The Revs have until Dec. 12 to sign the left back/left-sided midfielder.

The Revs 16s and 18s bounced back from Sunday’s defeats with wins against North Meck SC. The 16s claimed a 3-2 victory while the 18s picked up a 3-0 clean sheet.
Boston Victory SC announced that it had joined the Premier Development League of USL for the 2012 season. The addition of Boston is the second New England-based PDL squad set to kick off next year after Worcester Hydra FC was added to the league last week.
