Soccer - Girls' Varsity
Brewster Academy girls’ soccer competes in the Lakes Region League of the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC). Since 2000, the Brewster Bobcats have won 14 Lakes Region titles, earned 17 bids to the NEPSAC Class C tournament, made 12 NEPSAC final appearances, and won six NEPSAC championships.
In its challenging league, Brewster annually competes against Holderness School, Kimball Union Academy, New Hampton School, Proctor Academy, St. Paul's School, Tilton School, and Vermont Academy. Brewster also plays several other NEPSAC teams each year, and competes with teams from New England and New York in the NEPSAC tournament.
The Brewster Academy girls’ soccer program is designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop the athletic and social skills necessary for success in collegiate soccer and in life. A competitive schedule and rigorous training sessions help players develop their technical, tactical, physical, and psychological abilities. In developing these abilities, our players can reach their potential as athletes and teammates. Coaches focus not only on providing instruction, expertise, and constructive feedback but also on encouraging players to become active, collaborative, and responsible participants within their team and their school. After graduating, alumni of the Brewster girls’ soccer program have gone on to join a wide range of collegiate soccer programs, and a few are beginning to enter the coaching ranks in high school and in college.
In 2018, Brewster Girls’ Soccer posted another strong season, finishing with a 14-1-1 regular season record and advancing to the NEPSAC Class C championship game for the second straight year. The Bobcats continued their annual pursuits of the Lakes Region Championship and their 7th NEPSAC championship, but ultimately they were frustrated on both fronts, finishing in second place in the league to Lakes Region newcomers, St. Paul’s. In the NEPSAC championship, Brewster fell 0-1 to MacDuffie, who earned their second straight finals victory over the Bobcats.
Despite these frustrations, the Bobcats had an excellent overall season, scoring 54 goals, conceding 13, and posting 7 shutouts. The season included three victories over Kimball Union Academy, wins against all other Lakes Region opponents with the exception of St. Paul’s, and non-league opponents such as Berwick Academy, Phillips Exeter, and Dexter-Southfield.

In 2017, the Lakes Region League was as competitive as ever with several teams vying for the league championship and looking for playoff bids. Despite the competition, the Brewster Bobcats finished undefeated in the league and earned the Lakes Region championship with some pivotal performances in key matches. In the league opener against the defending New England champions, Kimball Union Academy, the Bobcats managed a 2-2 draw after falling behind in the opening minutes. Then, in the rematch midway through the season, Brewster secured a nervy 1-0 away victory. In both matches against New Hampton, the athletic and organized Huskies pushed the Bobcats to their limits, but BA was able to get results on both occasions: in the first matchup, a goal from Maddie Flagg with two minutes remaining led to a 1-0 victory, and in the rematch, a late goal from Anya Found salvaged a draw. With several convincing victories over league opponents to conclude the season, the Bobcats collected enough points to earn first place in the league. The Bobcats have now won the league five years in a row and thirteen times since 2000.
After securing the LRL championship and posting an 11-2-3 regular season record, the Bobcats earned the #2 seed in the NEPSAC Class C Tournament. Last year as the #2 seed, BA lost at home to an energized Marianapolis side, so this BA focused on preparing for playoff soccer and put together one of their best performances of the year in the quarterfinals, when they defeated Beaver Country Day School 5-0.
Next, the #2 seed Brewster Bobcats hosted the #3 Berwick Bulldogs in the semifinals. The two squads have had prior playoff matchups: in 2014, the Bobcats and Bulldogs played a great playoff game that finished 2-2 before Brewster advanced on spot kicks, and the Bobcats also defeated Berwick in the playoffs in 2015 on their way to winning their sixth New England championship. In 2017, Brewster won the regular season match 2-1 in a close game, and the playoff game proved to be even closer. After a quick start and some early chances for Brewster, Berwick battled back into the game and made some of their own chances, finally scoring in the 54th minute off of a great low cross and finish in the area. With time ticking down, it looked like the Bobcats’ run would end, but with under 3 minutes remaining, Maddie Flagg’s brilliant lofted strike from wide right sailed over the Berwick keeper to reach Anya Found at the far post, who made sure the ball ended up in the back of the net to draw Brewster level. After two even halves of extra time, Brewster and Berwick squared up for spot kicks once again. Ultimately, when Brooke Rooney made a big save on Berwick’s fifth shooter, the Bobcats prevailed 4-3 to advance to the NEPSAC finals for the sixth time in seven years.
In the finals, Brewster met the #1 seed MacDuffie Mustangs, whose team featured several talented and athletic players. In extremely muddy and slippery conditions under high winds, Brewster competed to the end, but a late goal from 50 yards staked the Mustangs to a 0-1 lead, and when Brewster pushed to equalize, one of fastest Mustangs found the space to race away and tuck home the insurance goal. At the final whistle, the Bobcats had reached the end of their line, finishing as Lakes Region champions, NEPSAC finalists, and holders of a 13-3-3 record.
