“It will be something our team will remember,” coach Daniel Scullion said. “It’s not every day you’re part of a team that finishes a season with a 100 percent record.”
The Dolphins (14-0) scored six unanswered goals in the second half for a 7-1 win against St. John’s in their semifinal game. Reilly Gokey and Pedro Cruz scored two goals each.
Justin Boyd, Annie Habeeb and Elena Turnbull also scored. It was Turnbull’s first goal of the season. Boyd, Arun Kelly-Rajan, Walker Latimer and Melvin Bonilla collected assists.
In the championship match against Hickory Christian, Sacred Heart won 1-0 in its toughest test. Rigo Salazar scored on a half-volley from the edge of the box five minutes into the game for the only score.
Sacred Heart’s Kelly-Rajan, Justin Boyd, James Boyd and Annie Habeeb were named to the 11-person league all-star team. Gokey was named tournament MVP.
