Running for first downs were Andrew Siegel and Santino Talavera. We also had a strong showing on defense. Flags were pulled by most of the boys including Jimmy Caputo.
Peanut 2—The Saints came up short despite a second half surge on offense and a clamp down on defense to keep the game close.

The last play of the game was an impressive pass from QB Mike Connolly to Torin Kassenbaum who ran it in for the touchdown.
With manager Tom Ball attending a wedding in Iowa, it seemed like a tall order when Marc Fischer said, “win this one for T-Ball.” Zwanger Pesiri Radiology (ZP) was after all facing powerful B.K. Sweeney’s, the number one seed in the Over the Hill Gang playoffs. But on Friday night, it didn’t matter. ZP fired out of the gates with 16 runs in the first two innings and then scored just enough to stay ahead in a big 22-15 win. Everyone contributed to this victory.
Pitcher Brian Tinney held a lineup that normally scores 20 plus runs a game to 15. His defense cracked a few times, but made the plays when needed. John Hernandez was solid at shortstop and Fischer at first base made a key stop and throw to nail a runner at second base. In the outfield, Bino Reverberi tracked down a number of drives up against the fence that a lot of guys don’t get to.
Grasshoppers—The Steelers and Titans youngsters put on a great show for a capacity crowd on Sunday afternoon. The Steelers were led by Mateo Morales, who made a nifty run to pay dirt while also throwing a TD strike to Christopher Smith and making an awesome full out dive to yank a flag and prevent a long Titans scoring chance. Alexa Smith contributed a long TD gallop, while Andrew Adamo and Matthew Ippololi made tough runs to get the Steelers into the red zone. Guiseppe Dalimonte contributed a nice sprint to the end zone while Ernie Thompson passed for a score and made some nice defensive plays, as well.
Peanut—The 49ers were led by Nick Migliaccio who scored two rushing touchdowns. Dean Kott and Colin Horowitz executed a reverse that resulted in a TD while Chris Ruotolo led the defense with two tackles / flags before the game was called due to heavy rain.

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.

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.
