Uniondale Vikingos v Finley
The game of the day saw the top two compete in what turned out to be an excellent spectacle! Finley were the only team during regular season play to stop the Vikingos when they held them to a 0-0 draw two weeks ago. They obviously gained confidence from that result and again frustrated the Vikingos matching their work rate while limiting their goal scoring opportunities and it was no surprise when the teams went into the half time break all square at 0-0. The second half was more open and both keepers were tested but Ethan Frasicovich in the Finley goal and Josh Ramirez in the Vikingos goal saved everything that came their way and the game went into a five minute ‘Golden Goal’ overtime period. Again, half chances came and went and the defenses held firm to take the game to a penalty shoot out. After the allotted three penalties it was still even at 2-2 so it went to ‘sudden death’. Both teams scored their fourth attempt but Uniondale’s fifth was beaten away by Ethan Fransiscovich in the Finley goal. Ethan then had the chance to finish the game taking the fifth kick himself and duly obliged slotting the ball into the net to secure a victory for Finley. It was heartbreaking for the Vikingos who had dominated the regular season but credit must go to a resilient Finley team for an excellent performance in the final.

Sting v One Pound Fish
The One Pound Fish team and their supporters certainly made it a colorful and entertaining season and they were in good voice for a competitive final game. The first half was even with the Sting’s skillful ball movement being matched by the enthusiasm and work rate of the ‘Fish’ team. Chances were at a minimum and it ended 0-0 at the break. A moment of brilliance from Alex Rivera finally provided the breakthrough for the Sting when his unstoppable shot from the half way line flew into the top corner. The Sting grew in confidence and soon after Erin Aydin and Alex Rivera played a give and go with the latter then striking another firm shot into the corner. Fittingly, man of the match Alex, completed his hat trick late on to give Sting the 3-0 victory.
