Eight long years without a league title came to an end Saturday for Tappan Zee as Marisa Bentley’s first-half goal stood up in a 1-0 win over host Nyack.
The Dutchies finished undefeated in the league with six wins and two ties. The last time they won the league, they went to win the Class A section championship and were regional finalists.
“I always told them, ‘At the end of the season we need to be playing our best ball,’ ” coach Bill Lynch said. “We are getting there and the team is excited about our opportunity.”
Once again, goalie Jules Harris was huge with four saves. Harris has led the team to a couple close victories with clutch saves. And with Simone Arzoomanian at sweeper, Lynch is comfortable with his defense stepping up in crucial moments.
“Jules has made some phenomenal saves that has won us a handful of games,” Lynch said. “The players have each other’s backs on the field and you can see it in their aggressive play.”
Jalin Cunningham had 10 saves for Nyack.
Best of the rest: Rye Country Day’s Taylor Regan had two goals and an assist in the Wildcats’ 4-0 victory at Millbrook. … Alessia Conte of Tuckhoe had two goals and two assists in a 6-0 rout of visiting Gorton.
