The Bellmore Icicles of the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) were the defending Arch Capital Group Cup champs but their reign was ended by another LIJSL team, the Levittown Lady Galaxy, which shut out Bellmore, 7-0.
This Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) Girls-Under-11 championship game was played at Peter Collins Soccer Park in Plainview on June 11.
Daniella Monzon and Hailey Hnis each scored two-goals while Emma Hoesten, Liana Mejia and Kaitlyn Tung each scored one goal for Levittown. Keeper Lexie Thompson received the shutout in goal.
“We’ve played Bellmore in close games many times but they were missing players today. We put it all together in today’s game,” stated Kris Tung, Levittown head coach, who is assisted by Tom Bray.
Bellmore received the Howard Rubenstein Sportsmanship Award as determined by the game officials. Now living in Kentucky, Rubenstein was President of ENYYSA from 1980 to 1984.
