GULLS FLY TO TITLE; LONG ISLAND DOMINANT IN CHAMPIONSHIP GAME WIN

The Long Islands Gulls are the 2023 Beast League U13 Champions after a 6-1 win over the East Coast Militia in Sunday's title game.

The Militia actually took a 1-0 lead early on, scoring just nine seconds into the game on a goal by Bruce Ghostlaw, but it was all Gulls from there.

The Gulls tied it up at 1-1 at the 4:36 juncture on the first of Matthew Ferrante's two goals, assisted by Christian Lopiano.

Later in the first half, a power play strike for Jake Conroy turned out to be the game-winning tally. Maveric Thisdelle had the assist.

It stayed a 2-1 game until the midway point of the second half, when the Gulls scored twice in a 1:02 span. Both of the goals came off the stick of Thisdelle, and both were assisted by James Fox.

Conroy and Ferrante each added their second goals of day to account for the 6-1 final score.

Here is Jake Conroy's game-winning goal:

SEACOAST PERFORMANCE ACADEMY EDGES YALE FOR CROWN

In exciting fashion, Seacoast Performance Academy are the 2023 Beast League U14 Champions beating the Yale Jr. Bulldogs 2-1.

SPA forward Luca Desjardins broke a 1-1 tie at the 7:22 mark of the second half, driving down the left wing side and burying a hard wrister on the near side for the eventual game-winning goal. Tomas Kubis and Declan Wotton drew assists on the goal.

"Honestly, I am mostly a playmaker," Desjardins said after the game. "But I saw an opportunity to put it in top cheese so I took it."

Here is Desjardins game-winning goal:
