As the New England Mutiny prepares to kick off the 2019 UWS season on Saturday against the Worcester Smiles at Foley Stadium, the team is solidifying its roster for its 20th season as a franchise. Newcomer Rachel Wood Rachel Wood(Laguna Niguel, CA) joins the Mutiny this season. After playing collegiately for Anson Dorrance at the University of North Carolina, Wood went on to play professionally in the NWSL with the Boston Breakers. Wood will join a quartet of returnees, which include Sydney Brackett (Hollis, NH/Syracuse University), Alexa Casimiro (Cheshire, CT/UCONN), Meghan Cunningham (Simsbury, CT/UCONN) and Ellie Jean (Coventry, CT/Penn State University). Brackett and Jean have both had stints with the U-19 and U-23 U.S. Women’s National Team as has newcomer Sam Coffey (Sleepy Hollow, NY/Penn State University). Coffey, a pre-season candidate for the MAC Hermann trophy given to the best college player in the nation, will don the Mutiny colors as her summer schedule allows. Cunningham returns to the Mutiny after playing last season with the Lancaster Inferno, helping them reach the UWS National Championship Finals. Ellie Jean

The Mutiny went north of the border – the Massachusetts border – to sign a trio of Vermonters this season. Sisters Breukelen and Sky Woodard of Rutland, VT will join the team for the 2019 season after playing a couple of matches towards the end of last season. Breukelen transferred this past fall to the University of Penn after making a run at the National Championship as a member of the University of South Carolina team, which lost in the NCAA Division I Championship semifinals to the eventual National Champions- Stanford Cardinals. Pittsford, VT native Olivia White will join the Mutiny for her first season with the team after impressing the club in training at the end of last season. 

Two more UCONN Huskies will join the mix this season as forward Zoe Steck (Nutley, NJ) and Vissi Rizos (Westhampton, MA) will play for New England- continuing the pipeline of Huskies under coach Margaret Rodriguez; a pipeline established nearly 19 years ago under former coach Len Tsantiris.Breukelen Woodard

The Mutiny has also signed forward Rebeca Frisk (Long Valey, NJ), which makes two signings from the program under new Minutewoman coach Jason Dowiak.

Rounding out the current roster is midfielder Jessica Fernandes (Pawtucket, RI) of Babson College. Fernandes’ signing marks the first player from Babson to have signed on with the Mutiny.

The Mutiny plays their first match of the season on Saturday in Worcester before returning home on Saturday, May 18 for its first game at Lusitano Stadium in Ludlow, Massachusetts.
