Story Links

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS, NY – St. Francis College Brooklyn women's soccer head coach Justine Lombardi announced the additions of Maya Madjercic, Jazzmin Forwood, and Maggie Boston to her inaugural roster for the 2019 season this afternoon. Madjercic joins the Terriers from Saltfleet Stoney Creek Soccer Club in Ontario, Canada, where she and her team won the league's championship in eight out of 10 years that she participated. While with Saltfleet, the team would take home the Ontario Cup in 2016, and fell in the finals during their 2017 season. "Maya is passionate, very mature, and has great energy, and will be a fantastic addition to our front line," said coach Lombardi. During her time as a player, Madjercic's team was ranked top three in the province of Ontario for five consecutive seasons. While in high school, Madjercic was also a basketball player, and was part of additional provincial championships. Boston heads north to Remsen Street following a pair of seasons that included a redshirt freshman year at Louisiana Tech. The third-year pre-medical chemistry major from Shreveport, LA, attended Caddo Parish Magnet high school, and played for Shreveport United Soccer club. While in high school, the goalkeeper was a three-year varsity starter. As a starter, she earned two most valuable player awards, three defensive MVP awards, and a first team all-district member. Following graduation of high school, Boston joined the Shreveport Lady Rafters of the WPSL prior to Louisiana Tech. Her late-grandfather Spiro Cosse, played football for the Aggies of Texas A&M and Bear Bryant in 1957. During Boston's time in Conference USA, she held the league's academic honors in her two seasons as a Lady Techster. "Maggie brings experience, maturity, and is just about one of the smartest and hardest working individuals I've ever met. Stay tuned for great things on and off the field from this one!" exclaimed coach Lombardi. Forwood joins St. Francis from Arizona Western College in the NJCAA. The 5-foot-4 defender comes to Brooklyn by way of Darwin, Australia. Prior to landing state side, the Australian native played four years in the Women's Premier League. During her time in her native country's league, she and her team would earn three premierships. "I went to watch her junior college team compete in the conference tournament and couldn't find her out on the field at all during the first half. Much to my surprise, Jazzmin (Forwood), a defender/midfielder was in goal. It perfectly demonstrates her attitude, and willingness to do whatever it takes and always puts the team first. She is exactly the player that we need here," noted coach Lombardi. While given the opportunities to span the world, Forwood has participated in tournaments in countries such as London, Singapore, and Spain. During her tenure with Arizona Western, she quickly became a starter on a team that went 15-3-1. Her team fell in the Arizona Community College Athletic Conference Championship game in 2017. During Forwood's sophomore season southwest, she started 22 out of 24 matches, and shot three times where a pair of those, reached the keeper. The Matadors played in the ACCAC championship game for the second consecutive season, and obtained the No. 1 national ranking prior to attending the NJCAA Division I National Championship in Alabama. The Terriers kick off their inaugural season on Thursday, August 22, against the Leopards of Lafayette at 1 p.m. from Pier 5 at Brooklyn Bridge Park. They are set to join the Northeast Conference (NEC) as its 10th member in the sport of women's soccer.
