Eighth Grade Conference Championship
saw Rockville Centre
(4-2-1) playing Farmingdale (2-4-1) for the third time
this season. Farmingdale earned their way into the
championship game with a tremendous upset win in the semis
over the top seeded Huntington team who had been 5-1 at the
time. RVC had beaten Oyster Bay in the semis. In the
two previous games played between Farmingdale and RVC they
had tied in their first meeting and then in the
second meeting Farmingdale won by a single end of the
game goal. It was no different in the championship game.
The two teams were tied at halftime 3-3 and then at the end
of the second half they were still tied 6-6 for over
time. Neither team scored in the first 6 minute over time
period so they went into sudden victory. With a minute
and a half left in the first sudden victory period and
Farmingdale down a player, due to a yellow card, the
Dalers scored to win the Championship. It
just does not get much better than that. A great game
between two very good and competitively balanced teams.
Congratulations to Farmingdale.
