Massapequa, Arch Cup

The Massapequa Lady Spurs defeated Sachem Black 5-2 on June 1 at Stringham Park in LaGrange, N.Y., in a final between two Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) teams.

The Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) state championship game was for the Girls U-10 Arch Cup Gold title.

Elena Dean scored four goals and Jill Ferrara added one to strike gold for Massapequa.

“We played Sachem a couple of times and it’s always a tough game,” said Dave Falcones, Massapequa’s Girls Development Director. “The atmosphere and this event were unbelievable.”

Sachem received the Rocco Amoroso Sportsmanship Award, as determined by the game officials. The award’s namesake founded the Long Island Junior Soccer League’s Sportsmanship Program in 1980.
