Massapequa Fury 03 of the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) took the Girls-Under-14 State Open Cup with a 3-0 win over fellow LIJSL side Smithtown Cobras. This championship game was played on Saturday, June 3, at Stringham Park in LaGrange.
Paris Burke scored two goals, Brooke Davi added one while Caroline Brucatto had the shutout in goal.
“Tactically, we stuck to our game plan to spread them out and possess the ball,” said Paul Yarde, Massapequa coach.
Massapequa will represent the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) at the Regionals from June 30 to July 4 in Spotsylvania, Virginia.
Smithtown received the Rocco Amoroso Sportsmanship Award as determined by the game officials. Amoroso, a US Soccer Life Member who died in 2016, started the LIJSL Sportsmanship Program in 1980 that would later expand to Eastern New York, nationally and then to China and Ireland.
