Old Staples soccer stars don’t hang up their cleats. They just keep kickin’.
So do Westporters who love the game, but never played for their high school.
At Gillette Stadium on Saturday, 5 20-something grads — former Wreckers Ben Root, Megan Root and Jessie Ambrose, along with Mike Ljungberg and Nick Yu — led their team to the championship of the America Scores Boston tournament.
The 40-team event raised $350,000 for America Scores Boston. The organization supports 1,400 children with an after-school program that combines reading, poetry, community and service.
