Six Manhasset girls helped the EMSC Blue United team go undefeated in the U-12 Division 1 Girls Long Island Soccer League season. The Blue United earned a tie for the top team on Long Island for their age group with an 8-0-1 record while drawing a 0-0 tie with the other co-champions. The six Manhasset girls are Ariana Aliprantis, Maggie Beresheim, Lauren Martelli, Halle Palmedo, Caroline Smith and Oliva Wesch. The girls have been playing soccer together since kindergarten. They all formerly played for Manhasset Five Star and LIFC before paying under the EMSC banner this fall.With 13 divisions of at least eight teams each on Long Island the Blue United girls are very proud of their accomplishments this season and over the past years. Some of their other recent accomplishments are: Manhattan Soccer Club Tournament-Champions, Covanta Cup-Champions, LI Independence Cup-Champions, Hudson Valley SC Tournament-Champions, Rocky Hill SC-Finalist, FC Delco semi-finalist, WAGS-B finalist. Congratulations to the entire team and special thanks to their trainer and coach over the last three years, Ruairi McGuiness who always believed this team could accomplish their goals.
