If anyone thinks the Long Island women aren't hungry for another gold medal, think again.
Four different players scored as Long Island topped New York City, 5-1, in its first hockey match of the Empire State Games. Isabell Whiteley scored twice, while Eleanor Haines, Jessica Spidle and Jordan Schidhaus each added a goal for the Long Island team.
Long Island plays twice on Friday, against Hudson Valley at 9:45 and at 4:45 vs. Adirondack.
Another gold would be the second straight for Long Island, which won in 2008 (there were no games last year) and its third overall.
