Week 2: Peanut 2—The Steelers played an impressive game against the Jets. Izabella Cimino opened the scoring on a long run down the sideline. Jack Wiser threw a TD pass to Ben Purcell before running in one of his own. Wiser had two interceptions on defense to go along with CJ Mangio’s team leading five flags. Nick DiGorga also played well in his second game with the Steelers.
In a hard fought high scoring battle between the Saints and 49ers, the Saints offense included an exciting 50-yard touchdown run by Gavin Vega on one play and another long touchdown run by Tyler Bules. The Saints also scored on a touchdown pass from Michael Connolly to Torin Kassenbaum.
Tinney helped his own cause keeping a tough lineup off balance and stabbing numerous shots hit his way. The entire infield played well, especially shortstop Russ Graham. The outfield defense was also strong as Bar-Boy hitters scorched several liners that Bino Reverberi, Tom Dittmeier and Vinny Foppiano turned into outs.
Grasshopper: The 49ers kicked off their season with a 95-yard touchdown run by Dean Kott on the first play from scrimmage. On their next possession, Colin Horowitz connected with Luke Begley on a pass play that resulted in a 90-yard touchdown. Colin also added a TD run of his own later in the second half. Christopher Ruotolo contributed on defense with several nice tackles/flags.
Pee Wee 4: The Titans won their season opener 20-12. Daniel DeMartino threw for two touchdowns while Sam Cordova caught two touchdowns. Brandon Moritz also had a long touch down run. The Titans defense was solid led by Matt Gaba, Jack Moloney, Tyler Carlow and Michael Melo.
After completing the NJBL 16U American Summer Season in first place with a record of 17-5, the Farmingdale PAL 16U Phantoms headed to the playoffs as the top seed. On Aug. 7, the Phantoms took on the N.Y. Wolfpack at the newly renovated Howitt Middle School field. The Wolfpack had taken the regular season series (2-1) and would be a difficult opponent for Farmingdale.
The Phantoms opened the scoring in the bottom of the first with Anthony Bellacosa and Scott Hilbrandt working their way on base with walks and Mike Catanzaro banged an RBI single. The Wolfpack answered back with two unearned runs in the top of the second and held the lead until Bellacosa opened the bottom of the third inning getting on base and stealing second and third. Hilbrandt brought him home with a booming sacrifice fly to tie the game. The score stayed knotted at two until pitcher Bryan Kaufman led off the bottom of the fifth with a walk and would score the go ahead run on a bases loaded walk to Anthony Pantano.

Congratulations Tommy Dittmeier. The Zwanger Pesiri Radiology (ZP) outfielder is the newest Over the Hill Gang Player of the Week. Dittmeier slammed four hits, drove in four runs and scored three to lead ZP to a 21-9 win over McCourt & Trudden Funeral Home.
It was an all-around good night for ZP and winning pitcher Brian Tinney. The bats were alive and the defense was sharp. After 10 years of nailing runners, you would think outfielder Bino Reverberi’s arm would not be tested very often. Not true. He had three assists Friday, including a laser to home plate from deep in right center field.
