Daniel Striano rushed for three second-half touchdowns to power Cold Spring Harbor past Shoreham-Wading River, 42-20, in Friday night’s Class IV Long Island Championship.
After a tightly contested first half, the Seahawks dominated in the second half to hand the Wildcats their first ever loss in a Long Island final. The Wildcats had been aiming for their fourth title in the past five years.
Instead, the Seahawks won for their third title in program history and first since 2005 on a frigid night at Stony Brook University.
Shoreham junior quarterback Xavier Arline scored two touchdowns and threw another to account for all of Shoreham’s scores.
The Seahawks led 28-21 at halftime before pulling away in the second half with two straight touchdowns to open the third quarter.
Arline rushed for 86 yards and passed for 124. His 27-yard touchdown to Dominic Visintin in the second quarter tied the game at 14.
Striano rushed for 215 yards. The Seahawks totaled 331 yards on the ground compared to 83 for Shoreham.
