The Long Island Sound completed an undefeated season, winning their second straight UWLX championship Wednesday with a 16-8 victory over the Boston Storm at the Lake Placid Summit Classic in Lake Placid, N.Y.

Christina Esposito (Northwestern ‘17) scored four goals to earn championship game MVP honors, while Halle Majorana (Syracuse ‘16) added three goals, including a 2-pointer, in the victory for the Sound. Jill Byers (Notre Dame ’09) also had a hat trick.

Tanner Guarino (UMass ’14) scored three goals in the loss for the Storm.

Three of Esposito’s goals came in the first half, as Long Island jumped to a 12-2 lead and never looked back.

The game was a rematch of the inaugural UWLX championship game, also won by the Sound, who beat Boston 13-8 in last year’s final. Long Island (8-0), coached by Syracuse assistant and U.S. men’s indoor team head coach Regy Thorpe, defeated its eight opponents by an average margin of 4.75 goals.
