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.

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.”

Farmingdale team wins annual Bethpage Ocean to Sound Race

On Sunday, Sept. 28, the Farmingdale-based Runner’s Edge team earned first place overall in the 29th annual Bethpage Ocean to Sound Relay. The team, representing the Runner’s Edge running and multisport specialty store located at 242 Main St. in Farmingdale, consisted of Boyd Carrington, Andrew Coelho, Nick Pampena, Tim Lee, Shawn Anderson, Ryan Healy, Kevin Galante, and Brandon Abasolo. It completed the 50-mile course from Jones Beach State Park to Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park in Oyster Bay in 4 hours, 41 minutes, 58 seconds. The runners won by a margin of more than 10 minutes over the runner-up team from the Sayville & Smithtown Running Company, with much of the difference supplied by the strong Leg 2 performance by Andrew Coelho. Runner’s Edge Teams also took second place honors in the Mixed Open and Men’s Masters Divisions of the Relay. The Relay was sponsored by Bethpage Federal Credit Union (“Built to Give You More”), with new Race Directors Glen Wolther and Keith Montgomery managing the event for the host Greater Long Island Running Club.
