DiCarlo Earns Preseason Accolades

The defending National Champion, Mercyhust Lakers, have been tabbed as the 2012 preseason favorite in East Coast Conference men’s lacrosse. Senior Eddie Plompen (West Islip) of C.W. Post has been named the Preseason Offensive Player of the Year, while junior goalkeeper T.J. DiCarlo (Farmingdale) of Mercy has been named the Preseason Defensive Player of the Year.

Mercyhurst accumulated 118 total points with eight first place votes to take the top spot in the preseason poll.  The Lakers are coming off a season in which they finished 14-2 (8-2 in ECC play). Their final win, a 9-8 victory over Adelphi, gave the team the first National Championship in program history. Four starters and 25 players return for Mercyhurst in their quest to capture the ECC title and defend their national title.

Mercy goalkeeper T.J. DiCarlo has been named the Preseason Defensive Player of the Year. DiCarlo was last season’s ECC Goalkeeper of the Year after posting an 11-3 record between the pipes to go along with a conference leading .636 save percentage. He also finished second in the conference in saves per game at 12.86. DiCarlo’s play was recognized on a national level in addition to the ECC, as he earned a spot on the USILA All-America First Team and was named the USILA Goalkeeper of the Year.

Over the weekend, thousands of Long Island residents flocked to the Village of Farmingdale for its 26th annual Columbus Day Weekend Fair and Fireman’s carnival. Running from Oct. 9

to 13, the five-day affair featured live music from Farmingdale’s own Electric Dudes and Long Island party band Superbad, a Fire Department barbecue, food vendors, a street fair, fireworks, carnival rides, games for kids of all ages and, of course, the Columbus Day parade. 

If the Farmingdale Rams are going to get over the top and capture the Skyline Conference for men’s soccer in 2014, it will take some more aggressive play. That’s according to team captain and defensive player Vincent Danetti. 

 

“We don’t have a lot of big guys on our team,” Danetti said. “We need to play aggressive.”

The 2014 Reilly Cup finals featured the two most successful OTHG teams over the last 9 years. Sal’s Place and Singleton’s have had 11 finals appearances and 7 championships between them during this period of time. They split 2 games during the regular season and Singleton’s became the winner’s bracket representative in the 2014 Cup by beating Sal’s deep in the tournament.

 

Sal’s took the first game 14-7. The game was close until the 8th inning when Sal’s broke it open with some timely hits and taking advantage of a Singleton’s miscue or two.  Sal’s held

Singleton’s to 7 runs with outstanding all-around defense, which was particularly impressive given that some of their significant contributors were visibly fighting through late-season injuries.
