Junior forward Summer Agostino broke the ice for the Ward Melville Patriots girls soccer team 21 minutes in, off an assist from Kate Ancona for a 1-0 lead against visiting Lindenhurst Oct. 10. Midway through the second half Jessica Tampori fed the ball to Katie Cosenza whose shot found its mark for the insurance goal as the Patriots blanked the Bulldogs, 2-0. Freshman goalie Elyse Munoz had three saves in net.
