The Hauppauge Blue Crush defeated the Greenbush Knights, 6-1, to win the Girls-Under-16 Arch Cup Platinum title game on June 9 at the Peter Collins Soccer Park in Plainview.
Sam Santanino scored two goals while Gia Arancio, Jenny Arancio, Kayla Bullard and Rebecca Clackett each netted one to lead Hauppauge to the title. During the five games Hauppauge played en route to the championship, they outscored their opponents 26 to 5.
“Greenbush was physical and athletic but we were more technical and that led us to the championship,” said Georgia Kearney-Perry, Hauppauge coach.
Hauppauge also received the Rocco Amoroso Sportsmanship Award as determined by the game officials.
