Ms. Warren scored the final goal on a penalty shot late in the second half of the game. She commented, “It feels wonderful to contribute to all the success, but it’s a complete team effort.” Scoring the first goal in the 2-1 win over Ward Melville was the team’s co-captain, Jillian Cotugno.

The team will play two games this weekend in Syracuse to determine the winner of the state championship.
