Boston City FC to host U.S. Open Cup game in Malden

Boston City Football Club (FC), Malden’s resident professional soccer outfit, is moving on in the U.S. Open Cup, the longest-running soccer tournament in America. Boston defeated the Western Mass Pioneers on penalties on Wednesday night in Ludlow. They won the shootout, 5-4, after extra time and regulation ended with a 2-2 draw.

Keeper Vitor Scariot was the difference in the shootout, as he dropped low to his right to deny Pioneers captain Maxi Viera with the third penalty shot. Substitute Kevin Herrera then converted his penalty to win the game for Boston.

“We’ve each taken three penalties in practice this week and I’ve scored low in the right corner every time,” said Herrera. “You don’t look at the keeper or change your mind; you just have confidence that you’re going to score.”

That said, the match was a physical, high-octane clash. Boston had four players sent off and had to be resolute defensively to force a shootout.

Boston’s goals were furnished by Jhonata Batista and Kamali Webson. Batista scored in the second half while Webson tallied in extra time.

Boston City FC will take on GPS Omens, another team based in Massachusetts, at Brother Gilbert Stadium in Malden on May 17.
