In a meeting of two Long Island Junior Soccer League teams, the Lynbrook/East Rockaway Thunder stormed to a 3-0 win over Hicksville Dare Devils.
With the win, the Thunder won the Girls U-11 Arch Cup Gold championship. The match between the two Nassau County-based teams was played June 9 at Peter Collins Soccer Park in Plainview.
“This Arch Cup championship was a total team effort and something the girls have been training two and three times a week for and it finally paid off,” said Will Whitehouse, Lynbrook/East Rockaway’s coach.
Christina Genovese scored two goals, Brooke Bocci had one while keeper Megan Skliros recorded the clean sheet in goal.
The Thunder also received the Rocco Amoroso Sportsmanship Award as determined by the game officials.
