It wasn't the typical dominating performance fans have gotten used to seeing from Massapequa's girls soccer team, but the result was identical to what happened for the majority of the season.

A victory.

Julia Hannon sent a corner kick into the box with 12:37 remaining in the game. After a scramble in the box, senior Skylar Vitiello put the ball in for the go-ahead goal as No. 1 Massapequa won its fourth straight Nassau Class AA title, 3-2, over Port Washington Tuesday night. Vitiello's goal made it 2-1.

The Chiefs, two-time defending state champions, continue their quest for a three-peat at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Adelphi against the West Islip-Hauppauge winner.

Kyleigh Gallagher scored with 3:30 left to give the Chiefs a 3-1 lead. Caroline McCarthy answered for Port Washington a few seconds later to bring it to 3-2.

Sophomore forward Marisa Fischetti broke a scoreless tie with 28 minutes remaining in the first half to give Massapequa a 1-0 lead. Hope Breslin fielded a cross from the left, then headed it to Fischetti to set up the goal.

Port Washington tied it at 1 on sophomore Caroline McCarthy's gritty goal. After charging down the right sideline, she slipped over the ball but didn't give up on the play -- capturing a loose ball after Emma Cisneros' shot was blocked, and scoring with 10 minutes left in the first half.

Massapequa (16-1-1) has won 12 of the last 13 county titles. Port Washington played in its first county final.
