Yankee United F.C. Revolution NPL 98

Emma is from Monroe, CT and has been with Yankee United for three years. She helped the U-13 Reign win the East Meadow tournament this past weekend by helping the defense not concede a goal in all four games. Emma was physical with her opponents, did a great job anticipating the play and winning the ball to help start the attack.

Coach Rui states "Emma has come a long way since I started coaching her and it is because of her work ethic and persistence to improve. Emma is a very versatile player that I can use in many different positions. She adapts very quickly in any role I give her on the field and does what is asked of her. She has worked her way up and plays a very important role on this team"

Yankee United defeated East Meadow Pre-ECNL 1-0, Staten Island United 2-0 Massapequa 4-0 and tied Levittown Wildcats 0-0.

Jess currently lives in Oxford, CT and is going on her first full year with U14 Yankee United Blast. Jess, this past weekend, scored the game winning goal in a 1-0 victory against GPS-Elite NPL who is currently ranked #4 in MA & 10th in Region 1.

"Jess is a great attacking player and is very dangerous around the goal. She has tremendous speed and innate ability to get in behind defenses to create goal scoring opportunities for herself and others. Her composure and skills also help her be such an effective striker. She has been an excellent addition to our team and I am excited to see her progression and continued development as a player," Coach Mones states.





Rachel H is from Monroe, CT and has been with Yankee United for three years. Rachel has been a strong defender and midfielder for the U-13 Reign this whole season. Against NEFC and GPS this season she sacrificed herself to save two goals. These games ended up 0-0 and 1-1. This past weekend Rachel helped the U-13 Reign secure a 3 to 1 victory against Syracuse Development Academy. Rachel did a good job involving herself in the attack out of the back. Coach Rui states, "Rachel is very valuable to this team and her teamates and myself included recognize that every game. I have never seen a player recover so well and sacrifice herself to save goals like she does. This season alone, she has kept us in games because of her effort to deflect shots. Rachel has a natural instinct to attack and win the ball from her opponents. We all love her personality and there in nothing that won't make her laugh"

Jazz is from Norwalk, CT and has been with Yankee United for two years. She scored 2 goals this past weekend, including the game winner over Aztecs NPL. Jazz was also part of a lock down defense that did not concede a goal on the weekend.


Coach Mones states "Jazz is one of the most consistent players, she always plays the game with passion, a high intensity and always seems to be in the right place at the right time. Jazz is one of our main defensive leaders on the team and continues to improve her game offensively as well. Jazz is definitely one of those players who can play anywhere on the field and make a positive impact."
