Updated: May 12

In a tightly contested quarterfinal matchup in the LI Cup, Hauppauge Beast Mode clinched a narrow 1-0 victory over Franklin Square, propelling them into the semifinals of the LI Cup. With only four teams remaining in the tournament, Beast Mode’s latest win sets the stage for a thrilling encounter against East Islip on May 18th.

The sole goal of the match came from Christian Bullock, who fired a stunning shot from the outside that found its way past the Franklin Square goalkeeper. Bullock’s decisive strike early in the game set the tone, allowing Hauppauge to shift their focus towards maintaining their slender lead.

Defensive prowess played a key role in preserving the victory, with goalkeeper Parker Mannino delivering an exceptional performance between the sticks. Mannino’s crucial saves and command over his area kept Franklin Square at bay, ensuring that Beast Mode maintained their advantage throughout the contest.

Supporting Mannino in defense were Dakota Mischin, Noah Markov, Luke Jacobs, and Gianfranco DelCollo, who collectively thwarted Franklin Square’s attempts to equalize. Their coordinated efforts and solid defensive play were instrumental in shutting down the opposing attack.

Further contributions came from Richie Kunkel, who arguably played his best game of the season. His elevated play helped control the pace of the game and facilitated crucial plays. Tyler Liebman and Jordan Garbedian also added depth and skill, enhancing the team’s overall performance and success on the field.

As Beast Mode prepares for their semifinal bout against Patchogue-Medford, their cohesive team play and strategic prowess suggest they are a formidable contender for the LI Cup title.
