Lady Dalers’ Last Stand

After securing a big win over the Syosett Braves, the Lady Dalers of Farmingdale High School went into the Long Island Class A Championship with the hopes of clinging on to the title. The Lady Dalers would take a quick lead by scoring back-to-back goals, the first off the stick of Emily Marlow at 21:59 and then less than a minute later a goal by Zoe Zebersky, to put them up 2-0. At 17:11, West Islip would return fire, scoring their first goal of the night. The Lady Dalers would go up 3-1 after another goal by Bridget Weill. The Dalers would get two more off of Chrissy Kelly and Jillian Alonso in the first half to give the Lady Dalers a 5-3 lead. But the Lions would score right back to tie it 5-5 going into halftime.  

 

The West Islip Lions would take control in the second half, scoring a quick two goals before Bridget Weill scored again to get the Lady Dalers close, trailing 7-6. The Lady Dalers would get two yellow card penalties, giving the Lions the momentum to score two more goals. Lady Dalers Goalie Olivia Kirk would make 10 saves in the game, but the effort was not enough to keep West Islip for long. By the end of the second half, the Lions would secure a total of 7 goals, to defeat the Lady Dalers by a final score of 12-8.

 

West Islip ends their season after going 20-0, capturing the team’s first Suffolk County and Long Island Championship titles, while the Lady Dalers finish their season as the Nassau County Class A Champions, and will look to next year to try and bring the Long Island championship title back to Farmingdale. 

News

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.
