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.

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.
