Islip HS Girls Win NY State ‘A’ Title

IslipGirlsHSSoccerIslip High School’s varsity girls soccer team won the school’s first Class A New York State Championship defeating Jamesville-DeWitt 1-0 on November 15.

Lyndsey Sparks scored the game’s lone goal and Islip netminder Cassidy Hock made four saves. With the win, Islip finished its season 14-2-1.

“At first, with the recent injuries to some impact players, I thought this would be a miracle on turf,” said Mike Reilly, Islip’s head coach. “After the way they played [in the title game], it was just a dominant performance by Islip soccer. This was no miracle.”

Islip’s trip through Suffolk’s Class A playoffs included a 2-0 win over Sayville and a 2-1 victory over John Glenn in the county title game. The team then topped Garden City 1-0 to capture the Long Island Class A title.

The state tournament included a 1-0 win over Williamsville East in the semi-finals before the victory over Jamesville DeWitt.
