Softball Championship Recap: EI vs. MacArthur

The East Islip softball team’s postseason came to a close on a drizzly Tuesday afternoon at the Mitchel Athletic Complex in Uniondale, as they lost the Long Island championship to Levittown’s MacArthur High School on June 5 by a 16-2 score.

The Redmen (21-6) had dominated the playoffs until that point, amassing impressive victories over Centereach, Commack, Bay Shore and Longwood on their way to claiming the Suffolk County Class AA championship title. East Islip simply fell short, unable to match the batting of Nassau champs MacArthur, but their pride in a terrific season of softball remains.

The East Islip-MacArthur game will be aired on MSG Varsity on Saturday, June 9 at 10 a.m.
