History[edit]

Worcester began their inaugural season in May 2012, playing at Foley Stadium. They appointed former US international player, and former Holy Cross head voach, Elvis Comrie, as head coach.[1] Their first game was against Seacoast United Phantoms, which ended in a 1-0 defeat for the Hydra. Worcester gained their first ever win, and first ever goals, in a 2-0 victory over Boston Victory, both goals being scored by forward Alencar Junior .[2] However, following the 2012 season, the Hydra announced it would not be returning to the PDL for the 2013 season, citing financial issues.
