Boston Militia Staff, January 5, 2015
It is with heavy heart that I announce the discontinuation of the Boston Militia.
The limited numbers of teams in the Northeast has resulted in a reduced schedule
over the last few years, causing the professional level of competition to decline.
The Boston Militia's hard work and dedication to their craft has forged 7 successful
seasons during which the team has won 51 regular season games and lost 3, winning
94% of the regular season games.

In this, her 14th and final season, Jen Olivieri is driven to play football for
one reason — winning another championship. Winning a third ring this season
with the Militia would complete her goal of having a ring for each of her children,
18-year-old Ariel, Christian, 14, and Ben, 11, and allow her to retire from the
sport she loves with no regrets.

Nearly three hours and one remarkable comeback into Saturday night's Women's Football
Alliance regular-season finale played at the Prince George's Sports and Learning
Complex, the DC Divas found themselves within six minutes of their first regular
season victory against visiting Boston Militia since 2011. Leading its historic
rival and the 42-team league's No. 1-ranked squad, 28-21, Callie Brownson's interception
gave DC the ball and the opportunity to go up by two touchdowns, which also would've
clinched home field advantage for the Divas in the upcoming playoffs.
