Long Island Fury Blanks Penn Legacy Inferno, 1-0
They might have been tired by playing three Women’s Premier Soccer League matches in five days but the Long Island Fury travelled to Pennsylvania Dutch Country on June 29 and blanked the Penn Legacy Inferno, 1-0. The Fury is now 2-2-2 while Penn is 3-3-2.

Shannon Horgan was the offensive star as she scored the only goal of the game in the 25th minute off an assist from Amanda Rooney. The play originated on the right side of the field and Rooney played a beautiful through-ball that Horgan ran on to and scored.

Fury keeper Alicia Ramos got the shutout in goal with 10 saves.

“We had the better of play and kept possession of the ball,” said Long Island Fury head coach Michael Demakis. “We sustained possession in the offensive third tonight, unlike last night against the New York Fury. We did a much better job of holding on to the ball and could have easily scored more goals.”

“We were finding each other better, the defense was solid as they did their job in the back tonight,” Coach Demakis concluded.

The Fury now get a break for the Fourth of July before hosting the Millburn Magic at 1-2-3 on Friday night, July 8, 8:45 pm at Aviator Field in Brooklyn.

Founded in 2006 as a Women's Premier Soccer League franchise, the Long Island Fury won the WPSL national championship in both 2006 and 2009. Seven Long Island Fury alumnae--Gina and Tina DiMartino, Kelly Henderson, Ali Long, Rebecca Moros, Alex Singer and Sue Weber--used their phenomenal play for the Fury to become professional players in Women's Professional Soccer. Their former coach, Paul Riley, now coaches the Philadelphia Independence franchise in that same league. For more info, log on to their website,
