East Hampton High School officials are giving the community a chance to send the East Hampton High School boys soccer team off to the state finals in style. 

Joseph Vasile-Cozzo, the athletic director, invited people to see the bus off on Friday morning at 7:40 a.m.  "All are invited to come to the high school and wish the team good luck in the state championships," he wrote in an email. He asked that people wait in front of the school to cheer the team as they get on the bus. 

The team will play in the final four on Saturday morning in Middletown, N.Y. A spectator bus leaves early Saturday morning (sign-ups were due today).

The boys beat South Side in the second overtime to win the Long Island championship 2-1 on Sunday afternoon. It marks the first Long Island championship for Bonac soccer, which has taken home three county championships. 

If the boys win against Jamesville-DeWitt on Saturday, they will play in the final game on Sunday.
