When it came to Northport girls soccer over the past few seasons, a sentence that started with the words Kristi Abbate commonly ended with the words Rosy Hayes.

The chemistry between Abbate, the playmaker, and Hayes, the finisher, created arguably the most dangerous tandem in Long Island, as they combined for 22 goals and 13 assists this season. They led Northport to a League II title with...
