(Via ENYYSA) – The Girls-Under-14 Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) State Open Cup final was an intriguing encounter between the West Islip Wildcats of the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) and Staten Island United Hotshots of the Staten Island Youth Soccer League (SIYSL) and Eastern New York Premier League (ENYPL).

West Islip wound up victorious, 2-0, behind second half goals by Jaden Hampel and Amanda Librizzi. Goalkeeper Jillian Radesca had the shutout in goal during the June 4 title game under sunny skies at Stringham Park in LaGrange.

“We were outplayed the first half but we came out in the second half and would not be stopped,” West Islip coach Lori Meyers stated.

West Islip also received the Howard Rubenstein Sportsmanship Award as determined by the game officials. Now living in Kentucky, Mr. Rubenstein was seemingly involved in every facet of New York soccer for decades and is a member of the Halls of Fame of Eastern New York, the US Amateur Soccer Association and the LIJSL.

West Islip will be representing Eastern New York when they play in Regionals from June 30 to July 5 in Barboursville, West Virginia and Eastern New York will help pay for their costs.
