The St. Kilian CYO girls volleyball program recently finished off their seventh season. More than 100 local girls participated on 10 teams and six of those teams qualified for the post season. The girls were all coached by adult volunteers who gave up their time to teach and improve the skills of the girls on their teams.
The 10-year-old Devils baseball team of Farmingdale recently defeated the LSW Astros, 6-0. Robert Manetta accomplished an amazing feat by pitching a perfect game against the Astros, striking out 17 of the 18 batters.
Zwanger Pesiri Radiology’s (ZP) rookie Sean O’Flynn is the latest winner of the Over the Hill Gang “Player of the Week” honors. O’Flynn had four hits, including a bomb to left field that cleared the bases. He had five RBIs for the night. In the field, he made all the plays at third base in ZP’s 26-18 win over Paradox Cafe.
ZP needed O’Flynn’s bat and plenty of others in a back and forth slugfest. The team finally found some breathing room with a six run in the 7th inning. John Hernandez, Marc Fischer, Russ Graham, Bino Reverberi, Rich D’Amico and O’Flynn all slammed consecutive two-out, RBI hits.

Congratulations to Zwanger Pesiri Radiology (ZP) shortstop Russ Graham. He is the Over the Hill Gang “Player of the Week.” Graham’s fantastic defense and timely hitting were the driving force behind a big ZP win. Graham made several over-the-shoulder grabs; one saved two runs in a very tight game. He also turned a number of double plays with second baseman Sean O’Flynn. At the plate, he had three hits including a clutch two-out RBI single and a long double.
ZP beat Changing Times Pub 9-4. Pitcher Brian Tinney was superb, holding CT to only four runs after the hot hitting team scored 58 runs in its first three games. Tinney had plenty of defensive help, especially from middle infielders Graham and rookie O’Flynn. The pair combined for three double plays to end potential CT rallies. The outfield was also solid. Vinny Foppiano, Bino Reverberi and Tom Dittmeier roamed far and wide to track down CT drives.
The St. Kilian Saints of Farmimgdale PAL recently presented the 2011 award winners with plaques. The 14U team, including: Anthony Costantini (Most Improved Player), Mike Murphy (New Saint of the Year), Mike Anzalone (Gold Glove), and Vinny Nicolo (Cy Young); and Brett Davies (Coaches Award) of the high school team (back) each received their awards.
McCourt & Trudden (M&T) Funeral Home recently beat Moby Drugs 16-15. There were plenty of hitting stars for M&T, but none bigger than rookie Ben D’Ampris, the Over The Hill Gang Player of the Week. D’Ampris’ go-ahead two-run homer in the top of the ninth won the game, but the blast was bittersweet.
D’Ampris ruptured his Achilles heel on the swing and will miss the remainder of the season. M&T and the entire league wish him a speedy recovery.
