The WPLL is pleased to announce that Darien, CT native Emily Leitner has joined the New England Command. A 2012 graduate of UPenn, Leitner will join Bridget Bianco as one of the two goalies on the Command roster.
"Emily Leitner brings a competitive edge to our keeper position. Her lightening quick hands, calming presence, and smart game sense make her tough to beat. She is stellar in her patience with shooters and is going to enhance our team with her the poise and confidence that she brings at her position." noted Command Head Coach Amy Patton.
While playing with the Quakers, Leitner was a 2x All-Region and a 2x All-Ivy keeper. In the off season Leitner works as an Associate Producer for NFL Films. Leitner made her first appearance in a WPLL game last weekend, tallying 4 saves in the Command's 13-10 victory over the New York Fight.
Cheer on Emily and the New England Command this season!
