The Port Washington BU-12 Pythons won the LIJSL Long Island Cup Inter A final by defeating the Uniondale Bilboa 4-0. It was the Pythons’ first appearance in the LI Cup finals, which is a single game elimination tournament held during the spring season. The Pythons reached the finals by outscoring their opponents 14-3, which included defeating the divisional champions 5-2.
In the final, the Pythons quickly dominated their opponent in the first half with three quick goals by Mark Vinciguerra, David Martinez and Riki Kato. Goalkeeper Luca Lewis sealed the game by scoring from the penalty spot in the final minutes. In addition to a fine offensive display, the team limited the Uniondale team to just a few shots during the entire contest. It was a total team effort and a perfect way to end a fantastic season.
In addition to the Pythons reaching the LI Cup final, three other Port Washington Soccer Club teams reached the finals in their respective age groups. This was the first time this many teams from the Port Washington Soccer Club have reached the finals and the Pythons were proud to represent the club alongside the other finalists.
