The Boston Militia are a women's full contact football team in the Women's Football Alliance, of which they are the current defending champions. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, the Militia plays its home games at Dilboy Stadium in nearby Somerville.

History[edit]

2008 - A Season of Firsts[edit]

In the inaugural season of 2008, the Militia finished with an 6-2 regular season record in the Independent Women's Football League (IWFL).

2009[edit]

2009 proved to be a strong season for the Militia going undefeated with an 8-0 regular season record. That regular season record sent the Militia to the Divisional Playoffs to play the then-defending champion Dallas Diamonds. A formidable Militia team beat the Diamonds 34-14 and sent the Militia to the Conference Championship where they played and lost to the D.C. Divas 21-27.

2010[edit]

2010 was the best season to date for the Boston Militia going 8-0 in the regular season. An undefeated regular season sent the Militia into the Divisional playoffs versus the New York Sharks, where they won 26-6. The win against the Sharks put the Militia into the Eastern Conference Championship where they played and soundly beat the D.C. Divas 28-0 to become the Eastern Conference Champs and earn a spot in the IWFL World Championship game. The Militia defeated the Sacramento Sirens 39-7 on July 24, 2010 to win the IWFL World Championship.

2011[edit]

For the 2011 season, the Militia joined the Women's Football Alliance (WFA). Picking up right where they left off in the IWFL, the Militia, who finished the regular season at 7-1, once again won the division title. The Militia won their way through the playoffs to the championship game, beating previously undefeated San Diego Surge 34-19 for the 2011 WFA title.[1]
