(Via ENYYSA) – The Dix Hills Hurricanes are one of the best teams ever in the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA), having won five consecutive State Open Cup trophies. In the Boys-Under-19 State Open Cup final on June 9, the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) team defeated FC Somers Galaxy of the Westchester Youth Soccer District (WYSD), 5-2.

How appropriate that this championship game was played at the Peter Collins Soccer Park in Plainview as the Boys-Under-19 trophy is named the Peter Collins Cup. Peter is a U.S. Soccer Hall of Famer and U.S. Soccer Life Member who volunteered as LIJSL President from 1977 to 2004. The Bethpage resident coached the Hicksville Minutemen to the Boys-Under-19 national finals.

Sammy Steinberg scored two goals while Armand Kirbria, Andrew McDonald and Noel Reyes added one goal apiece for Dix Hills.

“We were sloppy at the start but settled down 15 minutes into the game,” explained Dix Hills coach Leo Musacchio. “FC Somers was great competition and they pressed us hard in the beginning but our ball possession eventually made the difference.”

Dix Hills will represent Eastern New York at the Regionals from June 29 to July 3 in Spotsylvania, Virginia as part of the National Championship Series.
