The Pirates' shots started going in after halftime as Pearl River rolled to a 4-0 victory to finish 8-0 in league play and improve to 12-1-2 overall.

Lea Miller got Pearl River on the scoreboard, poking a ball in left-footed off a corner kick by Caitlin Noonan 4:54 in. Amanda DeCourcey made it 2-0 when her crossing pass went in off a defender.

Kate Walsh pushed the edge to 3-0 with a one-timer from 22 yards out and senior Kristen Scrima scored her first varsity goal by putting a shot over the Nanuet goalie's head.

Pearl River goalie Lauren Gallagher stopped both shots she faced in the first half and Emma Burnett played in goal in the second.

One thing not mentioned in this article was the the one blue sock worn by Nanuet. The players on Nanuet decided to wear one blue sock in honor of Tommy Scognamiglio. I believe that what Nanuet did went above just a simple we are sorry for the loss of Tommy, they put aside a rivalry and a traditional uniform for their senior's last home game to respect a great person who passed away tragically.

Thank you for mentioning that, Anonymous. I had heard that was the reason as well, but was waiting on confirmation to include it. I agree that it was a wonderful gesture by the Nanuet players.
