A few weeks after getting their rings for their third Super Bowl win, the players of the Boston Militia were told their owner was ceasing operations. But a determined group of players and alumni would not let a season go by without a women’s football team.
Ernie Boch, Jr., billionaire Boston-area car dealer, announced the reigning women’s football champions the Boston Militia would be no more. Former linebacker Molly Goodwin’s shock became the seed of a plan. She called fellow alumni Mia Brickhouse and Erin Baumgartner. Together, they vowed to resurrect the team.
Determined to play on, the disbanded Boston Militia decided to start a new women’s football organization from the ground up with a new name, a new logo, and a new mission.
