The Mariners (18-0) never thought they would need penalty kicks to defeat a Wyandanch team they beat 5-1 and 3-0 in two regular-season meetings. They have scored a school-record 90 goals this year, just three shy of second place in Suffolk history, according to coach David Riley.
Wyandanch’s Alonte Shipp, a freshman running back and linebacker, opened the eyes of everyone at Center Island Sports in Ronkonkoma. In an event usually dominated by upperclassmen vying for looks from college scouts, Shipp was there to prove he belongs.
