Guiseppe Dalimonte contributed a nice sprint to the end zone while Ernie Thompson passed for a score and made some nice defensive plays, as well.

Girls 5/6—The Titans and Giants girls waged an epic battle with the Titans surviving by two points to squeeze out the victory. The Titans were led by the team’s Olivias: Olivia Connolly contributed a nice sprint to pay dirt while also throwing a TD dart to Olivia Kropp; Kropp also made a tough INT in traffic and chipped in a second TD by virtue of an impressive gallop up the sideline on a halfback sweep. Allison Kiernan starred with a pick six and several big runs on offense, while Rebecca Morales reeled in a TD strike from Paige Nusio before making a huge, late goal line INT to preserve the victory. Gianna Morales contributed a long run to set the Titans up in great field position and made several flags on defense. Kimberly Dortz, Victoria Gagliardi and Andrea Lauritsen rounded out a solid offensive performance while also making several big stops on defense.
Junior Varsity 6—The Steelers pulled away late in the second half for a 19-7 win in a tough battle against the Chiefs. Daniel Bould connected on a short pass over the middle to Mario Febbraro who took it the length of the field to seal it. Connor Zanelotti scored his first touchdown of the season by hanging onto a bullet thrown by Mario despite a Chief defender close by. However, the story of the game was the outstanding effort provided by each of the Steelers on defense.
The Texans beat the Patriots 14-13. A tremendous defensive effort, highlighted by a John Feldman interception, by the Texans to defeat the Patriots in a real close and exciting game. Daniel Cordova scored both Texan touchdowns. A great team effort for the Texans second straight win by one point over the last two weeks.

Bethpage Water District officials recently filed a federal lawsuit against Northrop Grumman Corp., claiming the company’s facilities caused “irreparable harm” by creating a toxic plume that has contaminated the groundwater, costing the district millions of dollars and threatening more than 33,000 customers in Bethpage, Old Bethpage, Farmingdale, Levittown and Plainview.
According to the lawsuit, the district is demanding a jury trial to determine whether Grumman owes compensation for the costs of monitoring contaminants, operations, maintenance, treatment upgrades, and equipment required to comply with state and federal safe drinking water law; or whether Grumman would bear the expense of securing an alternative source of clean drinking water.
