On Friday, the locals, dubbed the South Fork Islanders, won their third straight, besting Port Jefferson 15-7 in East Hampton. The locals came out cautiously but gradually attacked with ever-increasing intensity, opening a six-goal lead after two stanzas that grew to a 10-goal lead in the third.
The scoring came from a variety of sources: Logan Gurney, Luke Marro, and Cole Shaw each tallied three times, and Marro added two assists. Kai Parcher-Charles scored twice, and Jameson Willey added a goal and an assist.
The deciding factor of the game, though, may have been goalkeeper Hudson Brindle, who frustrated the Royals time and again. He was credited with 17 saves. The locals moved to 3-2 in Division II; Port Jeff fell to 1-4.

Willey had five points including three goals and Marro added two goals and two assists. But it was Brian Damn who enjoyed a career afternoon, busting out for five goals and assisting on two others. Zach Finder also scored and added an assist. O’Brien had eight saves.
