The 14U division was one of the most exciting games of the night as the Valley Stream Green Hornets and the Hudson County Dolphins faced off. These teams truly put on a show under the lights of Mitchell Field.
Valley Stream went up early, only to see Hudson County tie it up. The Valley Stream backfield appeared to run at will on the Hudson County defense until the second half. The Hudson County defense made stops and came alive in the 4th quarter making it a 4-point game. Trailing by 4 with just seconds to go, Hudson County completed a pass down to the 3 yard line, as the receiver attempted to make a move and slipped to the ground. Time expired and the Valley Stream Green Hornets brought home the AAU Football NY Metro District Championship.
