On Aug. 14, the Merillon Patriots defeated a tough East Williston team 6-3 to win the HBQVB Championship for the second time in three years.
The Patriots jumped ahead 1-0 on a first inning John Young home run. In the second, Brennan Scanlon, Vinny Patrey, Kyle Facibene, Matt Theodorpoulos all scored, in part, with timely hitting from Frank DeSanto and Liam Slattery. Kyle Facibene followed up his no-hit performance (Oceanside) with a well-pitched Championship game.
Kudos to Evan Clark, Joe Pagan, Jon Cioffi, Dylan Forrester, Brandon Martinez and all the boys for a well-played tournament.
