Remember the name Ernie Constantine as he could be one of the next top soccer officials in the United States in the near future. Constantine, 22, of Bethpage, took up the whistle as a teenager. He recently graduated from Ursinus College in Collegeville, PA with a BA in Business and Economics and now works for a Manhattan hedge fund administrator.
“Ernie is a very nice young man who does a great job on the field,” said Eastern New York State Referee Administrator Howard Rubinstein.
The Patriots had an outstanding day with a shutout of a tough Steelers team! Nicky Demers connected on a sweet pass and nice catch by Nyle Gordon for the first half’s only touchdown for either team! The second half offense started off with a nice run by Demers to set up a quick first down. Avery Stevenson and Jevon Evans had catches and runs to keep the Patriots offense going. A second Demers to Gordon strike resulted in the Patriots second touchdown for the day! The Patriots played shutdown defense in the second half with Matthew Widmer putting pressure on the Steelers QBs, Dylan Reilly, Nicholas Demeri, and Thomas Moccia playing tight D and Demers and Gordon knocking down passes. Gordon added two more interceptions including a pick six that iced the game!
