The Commack Cougars shut out top-ranked Brentwood, 2-0, in a Suffolk League I upset last week.

Junior midfielder Aidan Keenan finished his day with a goal and an assist to help lead the Cougars (6-0-1) past Brentwood (5-1-1), which had been ranked as the state’s top Class AA team.

Commack, which was unranked, broke the scoreless tie in the second half with Keenan’s goal that came off a cross from Matthew Cozetti in a counter attack.

Tyler Meotti gave the Cougars some insurance in the 67th minute with a goal assisted by Keenan.

Goalkeeper Brian Mirman recorded six saves to preserve the shutout, his fourth of the season.

On Monday, Commack also trounced Sachem North, 5-1.

Eight Cougars made the score sheet, including Ryan Young, who scored one goal and added a pair of assists.

Mirman and Dillon Malyniak combined to make four saves in the win.

Commack’s other wins this season have come over Smithtown East, Patchogue-Medford, William Floyd, and Longwood.

The Cougars’ lone misstep came in non-league play against Walt Whitman, which they tied, 4-4. In that game, Commack trailed, 4-3, with seven minutes left to play. However, Cozetti tied the game off a corner kick from Liam Wallace. The goal was Cozetti’s second of the day. Nick Mastroianni and Bryan Tompkins also scored for Commack.

Next up for Commack is home game against Sachem East slated for 9 a.m., Saturday. After that, the Cougars are scheduled to visit Ward Melville on Tuesday with a scheduled 4:15 p.m. start time.
