      Long Beach Marines Capture State Crown

      By admin 03/03/2019, 9:45pm EST

      Rally to victory through a sharp defensive game

      With a sharp defensive effort lead by the Tournament MVP sophomore goaltender Kieran Byrne, the Marines stifled a tough Roy-Hart/Barker/Medina team to coast to a 3-1 victory to capture the State crown. 

      Byrne rewarded the coaching staff call by turning in a powerful effort on all but one of Roy-Hart's attempts. Late in the game, while Roy-Hart dominated in an effort to tie up the game, Byrne stayed strong and dominant with some key saves. 

      Declan Conway lead the scoring effort with two tallies and assisted on the Luke Judge put-away goal with 1:25 left in the game to set the stage for the victory. 

      This game closed out a 27 game tournament hosted by Northwell Health Ice Arena and the New York Islanders. We would like to thank everyone associated with the tournament and the 1200+ paid attendees who made this all a success.

Derek Zacchino was lined up on the blue line in full uniform next to his Bethpage High School teammates prepared to take part in the ceremonial puck drop for a benefit game in his honor.

      It had been a trying three months for the junior defenseman and his family. A surprise diagnosis after the first practice of the year changed the entire season. Now here he was inside the Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center holding a secret that only few people there knew.
