Brentwood Blaze Win Back-To-Back State Open Cups

Brentwood, Blaze

Two goals off corner kicks by central defender Bella Romano was the difference as the Brentwood Blaze topped Alleycats 2000/2001G, 2-1, to bring the Barbara Rodriguez Cup home to Long Island as Girls U-19 State Open Cup champs.

The win gives Brentwood its second consecutive State Open Cup championship.

“I thought that both teams played their hearts out,” said Chris Roche, Brentwood’s coach.

The Blaze will now represent the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association at the Regionals from June 28 to July 4 in Charleston, West Virginia, as part of the National Championship Series.
