Mattituck defeated Port Jefferson, 25-22, 25-22, 25-21, at Hauppauge High School to become the Suffolk Class C champion for the second consecutive season. The Tuckers finished the season with a record of 14-2. This is the program’s tenth county championship.

“It’s tough to get it once and to be able to come back in a shorter period of time between the two seasons . . . I owe a lot to girls, they stuck with it,” head coach Frank Massa said..

They stormed back by scoring 17 of the next 21 points to take a 21-20 lead and ultimately pulled out the win to secure the championship.
