Dalers JV Football Completes Perfect Season

Submitted by Frank Tassielli

The only thing standing between the Dalers and their perfect season were the Chiefs of Massapequa in the final game last month. It was an unseasonable warm day when the Dalers came calling to Massapequa High School led by their head coach Frank Tassielli and coaches Jim Pastier and Walt Henning.

Before the Massapequa team even knew that it was morning, the Dalers had posted a 28 on the scoreboard to take a commanding lead at halftime. Sophomore quarterback Michael Scheuerer threw three touchdown passes in the first half to etch his name into Daler lore by hooking up 16 times with his receivers this year to go down as one of the most prolific JV quarterback the high school has even seen. On the back end of those passes, sophomore Nicky Butler registered seven touchdown receptions.  

This team was dominant on both sides of the ball scoring over 40 points four times and over 30 twice while yielding six points or less four times. The Dalers posted two shut outs, first in week two against a hard fought opponent Baldwin winning 17-0 and then in week seven versus Freeport 31-0. Led by two-way player and captain Joe Cambia who excelled at controlling the offensive line at center, these Dalers came to play every Saturday. The offense used a very balanced attack. Besides Scheuerer throwing with pinpoint accuracy, the ground game was lead by sophomores Keith Brown, Keyshawn Petit-Frere and Aidan Gallagher. 

The defense made statements in just about every game commanded by freshman middle linebacker Ahmad Johnson.  Delivering crushing hits on his opponents, no one dared to run the ball his way. Along with Johnson at the outside linebacker position was another freshman who came into his own during the last half of the season was Charlie Tommasetti who had two interceptions during the last two games of the year while returning one of them for a touchdown. The other freshman that was a starter throughout the year and a dominant force at defensive end was Bobby Norton. With returning players like these, the defensive future of the Dalers is bright.

As the temperature began to rise that beautiful Saturday morning in Massapequa, so did the culmination of a great season. The end of the game brought a final score of 41-6 and a new mark for the JV football record books. This team will be remembered for many reasons, but the one thing, which will come to mind, is that this team got back to dominating the JV football scene in Conference I. The Dalers JV Football completes a perfect 8-0 season.

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

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.

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.
