Farmingdale United Headed To 5th Open Cup

There looks to be no stopping the Farmingdale United Girls-Under-17 team, who have won the past four state Open Cups against different opponents in the championships. 

 

The Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) team will be playing on June 1, in a final against the Alleycats Elite Wildcats of the Capital District Youth Soccer League (CDYSL) at Stringham Park in LaGrange. But the Alleycats are no pushovers as they recently finished fifth in the

Northeast Region Premier League (NERP).

 

In the Region 1 Premier League, Farmingdale again represented the LIJSL and Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) well, finishing with a perfect 9-0-0 record and outscoring opponents 26-2 to win the championship and qualify for the U.S. Youth National League for 2014-15. Smithtown Arsenal Boys-Under-16, the defending national champions, were the other Eastern New York and LIJSL team to win the championship of the Region 1 Premier League.

 

“Having a team-first attitude and the willingness to put in the hard work day in and day out has been the key to our success. The players have always wanted to work and achieve,” said Farmingdale United coach Jaime Gonzalez. “As a coach, it is such a great feeling to know that your players come into every practice and every game wanting to compete.”

 

Farmingdale has played 35 games in 2014 and lost just two, to Eclipse Select Elite of Illinois and Southern California’s Carlsbad United Elite. 12 Farmingdale players have committed to Division 1 colleges and three to Division 2 programs. This spring, Taylor Sipos is Farmingdale’s leading scorer with 19 goals while keeper Lauren Hill has 10 shutouts.

It’s been more than 50 years since the Farmingdale High School class of 1964 roamed the halls of their beloved high school, but that doesn’t mean that the memories have faded. The class—the first to graduate from Farmingdale High—came together on Saturday, October 18 at the Marriott in Islandia to celebrate all of the good times past and make new memories as a class.  

Despite the national media attention about Ebola in recent weeks, there is one virus that is actually affecting Long Islanders, Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), with one of the first cases identified in North Hempstead on Sept. 18 and a recent case on Oct. 15 in Suffolk County, which school officials called for the closing of school, as a health precaution. 

 

In Farmingdale, school district officials have been vigilant in their efforts to combat the virus.

3rd Grade Division

The Giants and Jets met for the 2nd time this season, with the Giants again getting the victory over the Jets.  Jalen Gordon scored late into the 1st half for the Giants, which turned out to be the only points in the half.  The Giants shut the Jets down for both halves, keeping the offense off the board.  The Jets strong point this weekend was the defense, with Kyle June and Jake Kuller picking up the weekly William June Foundation awards.  In what is turning into a rough offensive season for the Jets, these awards continue to remind the boys of the perseverance and determination of the award’s namesake and his “never say quit” attitude.
