WEEK 8 Review


The BU6 play-offs began with first placed HBC Greece playing against 4th place Northport Ninja Turtles. Josue Corea gave Greece an early lead but Gabriel Ko levelled for the Ninja’s before the break. The Ninja’s played an excellent second half but were undone by two more Josue Corea goals as Greece moved into the final with a 3-1 victory.

Two points separated Dix Hills and HBC England in 2nd and 3rd place and as expected the play-off game was another close affair. Chances were few and far between in the first half with both teams unable to score. The first goal was always going to be important and it was England who made the breakthrough when Lennon Harrington’s shot found the corner. The game was wrapped up when England were awarded a penalty which Lennon Harrington converted to give England the 2-0 win.

FINAL: HBC Greece v HBC England

HBC Greece and HBC England played an exciting final with England taking the lead thanks to a Lennon Harrington free kick. He then added a second before half time to give England a two goal advantage. Greece hit back after the break with Josue Corea finding the net to make it a 2-1 game. Both teams had half chances as Greece pressed for the equalizer but the England defense held firm and Lennon Harrington completed his hat trick with the very last kick of the game to make the final score 3-1 in England’s favor.

Northport Kickers finished the season in style with two victories over Northport Ninja Turtles and Dix Hills. Callan Steele was on target against the Ninja’s in a 2-1 win and was the only scorer in the Dix Hills game as the Kickers came out on top 1-0.

Congratulations to all teams for a great U6 season, to England for their win in the final and to Josue Corea and Lennon Harrington who’s goals earned them both a ‘Golden Boot ‘ trophy.

The Wasabis and the Uniondale Vikingos played an excellent game in the BU11/12 play-off semi final. Two Owen Husselbeck goals looked like winning it for the Wasabis but Andrew Orega and Justin Mendez each took turns equalizing to take the game into extra time.

Final: Uniondale Vikingos v Uniondale Pitbulls

The BU11/12 final was tense from the first kick to the very last. Both teams attacked but both defenses were solid and clear cut chances were at a premium. It really was end to end throughout the game but neither team could break the deadlock and the game went to sudden death overtime. Within two minutes Adrian Astudillo became the hero for the Vikingos as his shot found the net to give his team the first place trophies.

Final: CSH Crushers v Dynamites

The Dynamites started the final in confident mood and led at half time 1-0 thanks to a Mia Freire goal. The Dynamites defended valiantly for most of the second half but the Crushers pressure finally paid off with an equalizing goal by Noah Kimmelman in the last two minutes of the game to make the final score 1-1. ‘Sudden Death’ overtime began with more pressure from the Crushers and Logan Vitagliano scored the winning goal to give CSH the victory.

Congrats to all the girls for another great season, to CSH on their final triumph and to Sloan Soifer of the Syosset Lady Gunners who won the ‘Golden Boot’ trophy.
