The Long Island Sound of the United Women’s Lacrosse League (UWLX) defended their inaugural UWLX league championship title on Wednesday by defeating the Boston Storm in 16-8 at the North Elba Athletic Fields in Lake Placid, NY.
While the Storm’s Tanner Guarino put up a tough fight with a hat-trick, her contribution just wasn’t enough. At the half, the Sound were up 12-2, but Guarino’s three-goals brought the game in reach for her Boston team.
Attacker Christina Esposito for Long Island took home the Most Valuable Player honors for the championship match.

In last year’s championship game, Long Island also outlasted Boston, however with a closer scoreline of 13-8. Will the Sound make it a threepeat in 2018?
