Long  Island City, Academy of American Studies, Beacon, and Martin L. King all ended  their season by claiming PSAL Soccer Championships in their respective  divisions. 
In  the Girls B Division L.I.C. Freshman Stephanie Perez Santos put five balls in  the back of the net leading the Bulldogs to a dominant 7-0 victory over  Maspeth. L.I.C entered the playoffs as the #3 seed running through the bottom  of the bracket scoring 25 goals while surrendering only 2 in victories over George  Washington, Manhattan Center for Math & Science, Mott Haven, and H.S. for  Environmental Studies enroute to the finals. 
Academy  of American Studies were 3-1 winners over Thomas Edison in the Boys B  finals.  Senior Milto Sionakides led the  Eagles with a pair of goals, the first in the 34th minute and the second in the  43rd minute.  American Studies entered  the tournament as the #10 seed upsetting #7 Hunter 1-0 in the quarters, and #3  Flushing 4-3 in the semifinals to set the stage for knocking off top seeded Edison in the finals. 
For  the second year in a row Beacon found their way to the Girls A final with  Junior Olivia Morrow, Senior Allana Alcorn, and Sophomore Sydney Poppinga all  scoring goals to secure a 3-0 victory over Hunter College H.S. Beacon, the  tournaments #3 seed, defeated Lincoln, Curtis, Brooklyn Tech, and Susan Wagner  to find their way to the finals. The championships victory avenged a regular  season loss to Hunter, capping the year with 15-1 record. 
The  Boys A game featured a finalist regular in Martin L. King, and a Curtis squad  that hadn’t brought home a PSAL title in a century, last winning the league in  1917.  It was a scoreless first half, but  top seeded M.L.K demonstrated why they are ranked as a top five team nationally  with a volley of goals in in the second half. Senior Gaoussou Coulibaly scored  a hat trick and senior Akeem Shelton added a fourth for good measure, while  Goal Keeper Rashawn Best, who gave up only one goal in the teams championship  run, kept the #7 seed Curtis strikers at bay to run away with a 4-0 win.
