The Rockville Centre Vipers topped the Plainedge Cosmos, 2-1, in the state championship game for Girls-Under-15 Arch Cup Platinum.
This match between two Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) teams was played on Saturday, June 10, at Stringham Park in LaGrange.
“We had the better of play and dominated in the second half, scoring two goals quickly in the half, then held on for the win toward the end,” said Matt Roberti, Rockville Centre’s coach.
Dana Allen and Erin Duffy scored Rockville Centre’s goals.
Rockville Centre added the Rocco Amoroso Sportsmanship Award, as determined by the game officials, to their growing trophy case. Amoroso started the LIJSL Sportsmanship Program in 1980, it has since been copied around the world and he spoke about the benefits of Fair Play across the United States.
