Southern California now has two women’s soccer national champions.
A day after Pali Blues won the W-League title, Rolling Hills Estates-based Ajax America Women took their first Women’s Premier Soccer League crown Sunday night with a 3-1 come-from-behind victory over the Arizona Rush.
It was the team’s first WPSL title since 2001.
“Its been a long time coming,” said Coach Brian Boswell, who saw his team make three straight trips to the Final Four (2006-08). “We’re real happy with this one. Over the last couple of [Final Fours], we’ve been the bridesmaid and it feels good to be the winner. We’re just a great team… it doesn’t matter who’s out there. We just play very well as a team. We play well for each other – more than any superstars.”
