Lisa-Marie Woods: A whole new focus

As I write this, I am sitting on the ferry on my way from Denmark to Norway. We have just beaten Brondby, 2-1, in a well-played game that was broadcast on national television. As you might know by now, Brondby won the league this year, and we came in second. I feel that is a fair result after all. We won two games against them and they won two games against us. We had the chances to come out as number one, but we failed when it counted most. Silver is not bad, even though it only is best of the losers. My journey with the team has been up and down. While I have been on the team, we have played some fantastic games, but unfortunally we have also played some

Jordan Angeli: ‘I won’t let an injury determine my fate’

I was pumped to get my journey started up until I actually started driving over to the surgery center on May24th. On that rainy Colorado morning, I got very quiet. Something you may not know about me is that is not a very normal thing. (more…)

Emma with Keeley Dowling

By David Bayer

When Keeley signed with the Beat in the off-season, the only thing I heard about her was that she has an incredible vertical leap. After meeting her, we found there are many incredible things about her. She’s warm, friendly, unassuming, and has a smile that leaps out at you. (more…)


WPSL Week in Review: Rain score 14 in two games, young FC St. George side tops Utah

By Kaeley McEvoy

As the opening month of the WPSL came to a close this Memorial Day weekend, the league saw competition increase greatly in the Big Sky and East-Mid-Atlantic conferences. Although a majority of the league took a hiatus this past weekend to celebrate the holiday, or more likely to get a few more training sessions in before the opening weekend of June, other teams used this weekend as an opportunity for double headers to get a leg up on the competition.
