Week 2: Peanut 2—The Steelers played an impressive game against the Jets.  Izabella Cimino opened the scoring on a long run down the sideline.

Christopher Giglio was all over the field for the Redskins and scored on two long TD runs of 75+ yards. Joseph Mahan had an 80-yard run of his own that also resulted in a touchdown. On defense the Redskins were led by Christian Mall who recorded four solo tackles, flags and assisted on several others.

Girls 5/6—In a hard fought battle between the Titans and 49ers, the Titans came up short in an 18-8 loss. But the Titans played tough defense in the second half to stay close and were led by Gianna and Rebecca Morales and Victoria Gagliadri who all grabbed flags to stop the 49ers offense. The Titans lone offensive score was a thrilling touchdown pass by Allison Kiernan to Olivia Connolly who exploded after the catch to elude the defense and run it in for the score. Kiernan followed up her TD pass with a great run for the two-point conversion.

Week 3: Grasshoppers—The 49ers were clicking on all cylinders this week. Nick and Sal Migliaccio each scored on long TD runs as did Christopher Ruotolo.

On defense, Kott, Horowitz and Nick Migliaccio combined for a total of 12 flags/tackles.

PeeWee 3—The Steelers edged the Titans in an overtime thriller. With the game tied 14 all, Nicholas Napolitano caught a short pass and out ran the defense to the end zone. The extra point failed. The Titans then responded with a last second 80-yard run by Chris Krasmer to send the game into overtime at 20-20. The Steelers Colin Cody ran an end around for a 40-yard touchdown. The Titans were driving when Nick Disanti stepped in front of a pass for a game ending interception. The Steelers defense was led by Miles McIntyre who had an interception and Ian Innes, who had three flags pulled.

PeeWee 4—The Titans had a great day winning 30-26 over the Steelers. Brandon Moritz, Matt Gaba and Sam Cordova all had TD runs. The Titans defense was solid led by Jack Moloney, Tyler Carlow, Chris Sperretta, Michael Melo and Adam Gordon.

Junior Varsity 6—The Steelers held on for the win in a 29-27 nail biter against the Patriots. Vincent Perrone had a game-saving interception and led the Steeler defense along with Connor Zanelotti by together pulling several flags. Jared Aleman shined on offense with a spectacular touchdown pass to Daniel Bould and a one-handed TD reception thrown by Mario Febbraro.

The Texans beat the Chiefs 27-26 in a very exciting game that came down to the last few minutes. Three touchdowns scored by Daniel Cordova and Justin Reece added a TD and an interception that helped the Texans come back from a 13-0 deficit. Great job by the entire Texans team on their first victory.

At a recent meeting of the Farmingdale Board of Education, school district superintendent John Lorentz discussed New York State’s proposal to invest $2 billion into districts statewide

through the Smart Schools Bond Act.

 

If approved by voters in the upcoming general elections, the act would allow the state to borrow $2 billion in the form of a capital bond to provide students with access to classroom

technology and high-speed internet connectivity, with the goal of equalizing opportunities for children to learn, adding classroom space, expanding pre-kindergarten programs, replacing classroom trailers with permanent instructional space and installing high-tech security features in schools. 

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

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.
