On June 8 at the Peter Collins Soccer Park in Plainview, Gary Sullivan, who played for both the Rough Riders and Rapids a decade ago, coached the Hicksville Hotshotz to the Girls-Under-11 (GU11), Small Sided, Arch Capital Group Cup. The game for Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) supremacy was played 8 vs. 8 and they blanked another Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) team, the Sachem Speed, 5-0.
Five players—Kiera Haggerty, Kayleigh Goodrich, Julia Aronov, Kenar Gelmand and Kerry Pearson—scored for Hicksville.
“This is a group of girls that loves the game,” commented Coach Sullivan. “I have never coached a group that loves soccer as much as this. They are very competitive, even with one another in training.”
