Levittown Nitro saved their best for last as they won the Boys-Under-18 Eastern New York Premier League (ENYPL) championship on June 18 at Division High School in Levittown.
Nitro’s 5-2 title game win was over a rival Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) side, the Valley Stream Warriors, which made their second trip to the ENYPL finals in the past two years. Fourteen of 15 Levittown players are high school seniors who graduated in June.
“The boys are always supportive and encouraging of one another. They are a close-knit group and it’s clear to see when you watch them on and off the field as they’ve been playing together for many years, some since Under-10,” said coach Jo Colardi. “This championship game was their last game together and they were determined to end their last season on a high note. It was a total team effort and the coaches and trainer couldn’t be prouder.”
In the win, Frank Iacovano scored two goals with Tommy Hamel, Tommy Lang and Nick Weinert adding one apiece.
