Kayley Jansen scored two goals for the victorious East Hudson Youth Soccer League squad while Honour Butler, Taylor Lynch and Kaitlin Swanson had one. Allison Khare replied with two goals for Deer Park and Shannon Doolan added one.
“Our girls started the game with jitters and Deer Park came out on fire,” said Kingston coach Manny Nneji. “We made adjustments at halftime, controlled the ball better in the second half and did not let their forwards get behind our defenders.”
