Ea­gles fall to Huskies in girls’ soc­cer sec­tion fi­nals


— For a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive sea­son, the Bo­hemia Manor girls’ soc­cer team had its sea­son end at the hands of Pat­ter­son Mill.

The Ea­gles held the host Huskies to just two first-half goals, but they al­lowed five more af­ter the break in an even­tual 7-0 loss in the 1A East Re­gion Sec­tion I Fi­nal on Fri­day.

“We came out re­ally strong be­cause we were ex­pect­ing a hard game. Ob­vi­ously, they’ve been play­ing re­ally well all sea­son. I think our de­fense or­ga­nized re­ally well in the first half,” said Bo Manor se­nior Emily Park, who had 29 saves in the con­test. “It’s crazy. I’ve been play­ing since I was eight and this is my last game, pos­si­bly ever, so it’s just sad, but at the same time, I’m proud of [my team­mates].”

Brooke Mur­phy had a


hat trick and Ka­ley Thomp­son, Alexis Utain, Lau­ren Thomas and Kate Springer also found the back of the net for the Huskies, who re­ceived as­sists from six dif­fer­ent play­ers.

“We came out pre­pared to face a re­ally tough team. I think what hap­pened in the sec­ond half was that we wore down a lit­tle bit. Their skill level and their phys­i­cal­ity and their size and speed took us to­ward the end,” Bo Manor coach Lissy Haney said. “We put in as much min­utes as we could at that level and I’m re­ally proud of these girls and they ob­vi­ously didn’t want this sea­son to end.”

The Ea­gles had sev­eral scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties in the first half but couldn’t cap­i­tal­ize.

“They’re go­ing home and they’re hang­ing their heads be­cause it was a 7-0 game, but hon­estly, we hung with them for 50 min­utes of that game, and that’s one of the top upper-level teams,” Haney said. “They need to keep their heads up and re­al­ize, while we can’t last the whole 80 min­utes with a team of that cal­iber, we have times when we are as good as an upper level team.”

Fri­day’s loss marked the fi­nal con­test for the Bo Manor se­niors, many of whom were on the 2013 state semi­fi­nal squad as fresh­men—the only time the Ea­gles ever won a re­gion ti­tle.

“I love this team and the feel­ing that we had fresh­man year when we won re­gion­als, I just wanted to feel that again. I would do any­thing for them,” Park said.”

Her head coach echoed that sen­ti­ment.

“That’s a lit­tle tough for me. Be­sides what’s on the field, we have de­vel­oped an awe­some re­la­tion­ship off the field, so they’re like my kids leav­ing me,” Haney said. “While our re­la­tion­ship changes and I’m no longer their coach any­more, I’m sure we’ll still stay in touch when they go to col­lege.”

Elk­ton boys’ soc­cer sea­son ends in de­feat

— A sea­son that saw the Elk­ton boys’ soc­cer team win dou­ble-digit games con­cluded Thurs­day in a 3-0 loss to vis­it­ing Fall­ston in the 2A East Re­gion Sec­tion I Fi­nal.

The Elks (10-3-1) al­lowed all three goals on cor­ner kicks, in­clud­ing a pair by the Cougars’ Cur­tis Kassier and an­other by An­drew Solomon.

“This is my last game and I’m pretty sad about it but we had a good sea­son,” Elks se­nior Serebe Ka­jube said. “We were re­ally hop­ing to win this game and keep go­ing but they’re good team and they played


well and took it to us.”

The Elks’ mag­i­cal sea­son fol­lowed a 2015 cam­paign in which they won only three games.

“I’m re­ally proud of how we per­formed all sea­son. Start­ing Aug. 10, the boys came ready to put in the work and did ev­ery­thing we asked of them. Re­ally it’s on them be­cause they did ev­ery­thing we asked of them and that’s what kind of got us to this point,” Elk­ton coach Josh Marley said. “It’s time to start re­flect­ing and we met a lot of the goals we set out to meet this year, so very proud of them.”
