Recap: Mattituck clinches third state title in school history
The Mattituck boys soccer team downed Beekmantown 3-0 Sunday morning at Middletown High School to clinch the third state title in school history. A senior-laden team that experienced a taste of the states two years ago, only to come up just short, the Tuckers left little doubt of their supremacy this time.
They won their two playoff games in Middletown by a combined score of 9-0.
Senior Kaan Ilgin scored twice in Sunday’s win and Kevin Williams added another.
The Tuckers led 1-0 late into the second half before Williams scored on a beautiful deep kick that soared just over the oustretched arm of the Eagles’ goalkeeper. Ilgin added the final goal a few minutes later on a free kick from the right side that rocketed into the far corner.
The Tuckers close out the season 19-2.
It was the second outright title for Mattituck and first since 2003. The Tuckers shared a Class C state title in 1982.
