Team OneBeacon Bundles Up For IceBreaker Soccer Tournament

A team of athletic ladies from our Canton, Mass. office braved the cold weather last weekend to compete in a charity soccer tournament. Despite the chilly temperatures and snowbanks surrounding Harvard University’s Cumnock Fields, the OneBeacon ladies gave it their best “shot” to win the IceBreaker tournament!

Now in its 10th year, this all-women’s soccer tournament is hosted by the America SCORES organization to raise money for soccer and service-learning programs for inner-city Boston children.

Competing in the all-ages bracket, Team OneBeacon won two games and tied one game. They advanced to the playoffs but ultimately lost in the semifinals. More importantly, they joined together with over 100 players and 13 other teams to raise $13,000 for America SCORES –one big goal for charity!

Snow banks served as field boundaries at Harvard.
