Joey Worysz just knew Peter Fouchet would be making a cut down the right side of the 18-yard box. He knew he could send Fouchet a pass from the top of the box and it would become a goal.
"They have this kind of sense about them," Southold coach Andrew Sadowski said.

As in a sixth sense between the two lifelong friends who went to day care together.
Worysz was correct. Fouchet received his pass in stride and fired past the keeper for the first of his two goals in No. 1 Southold's 2-0 win over No. 2 Pierson in the Suffolk Class C boys soccer championship Saturday at Diamond in the Pines in Coram.
Southold (14-2-1) has won three straight county titles, all against Pierson-Bridgehampton (7-9).
Fouchet's first goal came with 15 minutes left. He headed in his second goal in front of the right post off Worysz's corner kick 10 minutes later to all but seal the win.
"We have the best bond," Worysz said. "We have a brotherhood. The chemistry's been here for a long time."
Fouchet will enter Southold's subregional match against the Section I champion Wednesday with 19 goals and four assists. Worysz has 13 goals and 10 assists, several of which have led to goals by Fouchet.
"It doesn't matter if he scores and I assist or I score and he assists," Fouchet said. "I don't care who scores as long as we win the game."
Fouchet and Worysz, a pair of seniors, have been on each of Southold's teams during the three-peat.
"It's a good feeling," Fouchet said. "You've got to stay modest, though."
"We're doing this for Southold," Worysz said. "We're not doing this for us."
Maybe it's not a sixth sense, but Fouchet and Worysz are clearly on the same page.
