The team displays their hard-won hardware

On this day 6 years ago, the girls soccer team brought home just the second Regional Championship in school history. Behind the All-State play of midfielder Karina Scavo and keeper Danielle Pappas, the girls won a second consecutive Long Island Championship before reaching a new plateau for the program in a 2-1 victory over North Salem. Scavo’s free kick strike provided the winning margin for the Bears.

Here is the account of the match from the Village Times:

They had been here before. A county Class C championship. A win over a Nassau county team in the state playoffs. A trip to the regional final, just one win away from the final four. In 2007, The Stony Brook School girls’ soccer team lost that regional final, giving up a last minute goal to the eventual state champions. Almost all of the players from that team returned this year, and again, the Lady Bears followed the same path to the regional final. A 1-0 win over Pierson on a sudden death goal in the fourth OT. A 2-1 win over Friends Academy, the game winner coming with just two minutes to play. A return to the regional final. But this time, the ending was a little different.

After a long day of steady rain, the Lady Bears took to a wet and slippery turf field in Yorktown Heights in upstate New York and came away with a hard fought 2-1 victory over Section I representative, North Salem High School, earning them the first state final four appearance in the program’s history.

Coach Jeremy Meserole, a 1996 alum of The Stony Brook School, held up four fingers to the camera filming the game as the clock wound down. After the game he said, “This was the next step and the girls have worked hard to have this opportunity. Everyone on the field put forth a great effort tonight and they were rewarded with victory.”
