In a close match between two Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) teams, Carle Place Lady United shut out the Dix Hills Destroyers, 1-0, in the Girls-Under-10 Arch Capital Group Cup final on June 8 at the Peter Collins Soccer Park in Plainview. The match for Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) supremacy was played 8 vs. 8. Leah Iglesias scored the only goal of the game and Carle Place keeper Victoria Dieguez had the shutout.
“Dix Hills was phenomenal,” commented Carle Place coach Hadiah Chiappone. “But we got an early lead and we were able to make it stand up.”
Carle Place also received the Howard Rubenstein Sportsmanship Award as determined by the game officials. Carle Place Lady United is sponsored by Arch Capital Group.
