Farmingdale’s PAL Flag Football League celebrated its 10th Anniversary Sunday with its annual Super Bowl festivities at Woodward Parkway Field and Allen Park. More than 1000 boys and girls capped another successful season with the older divisions competing for Super Bowl bragging rights and the younger players getting another week of fun. This year the community honored three men who spent the last decade building the league into one of the biggest and best in the Northeast. The youth of Farmingdale will forever be indebted to Denis Donovan and Ray Webb who founded the league and to George Mauro who made it possible for the league to grow. Special thanks to Farmingdale High School’s wrestling team who helped with the food Sunday and to the dozens of directors and coaches who volunteer countless hours each week, year after year.

Luke Begley ran for one TD and threw for another to Dean Kott who also scored on an 80 yard reverse. Hunter Kinhackl and Andrew Adamo each had nice gains while Luke Eschman spearheaded the defense.

The 2013 OTHG Championship game was played Friday 10/11/13 at Allen Park. It was Paradox Café managed by Don Carlin vs. Autocraft managed by Denny Oehl. Paradox, coming from the losers bracket, needed to win 2 games.
Autocraft only needed one win as they were undefeated in the tournament. It was a cool crisp night with the wind blowing in so the long ball was really not an option. Paradox took the field and set the tone right away playing 5 infielders and only 3 outfielders hoping to neutralize Autocraft’s strong offense, averaging over 30 runs per game in the tournament.
On September 29, 2013 the Farmingdale Lady Dalers hosted a fall lacrosse festival at Farmingdale High School.

This fundraiser event will help offset travel costs and new uniforms for the girls’ lacrosse team. The Lady Dalers would like to thank the athletes, coaches, parents and local fire department for supporting the Farmingdale Girls Lacrosse Team.

Emma Savino pitched in with a long TD run up the left sideline while Andrew Adamo had a long run up the right sideline. Hunter Kinhackl hurt his leg early but showed his toughness by returning to the game and making contributions on both sides of the ball.
Baseball is America’s pastime and should be enjoyed by everyone, including children with special needs.
That has been the thrust of Long Island Challenger Baseball since it was established in 1989 -- to give physically and mentally challenged children from across the island the opportunity to play baseball in an environment structed to their abilities.
And those abilities will be on display at the Long Island Challenger Baseball Jamboree at John J. Burns Park on Merrick Road in Massapequa, Sunday Oct. 13. The special event will bring together challenger teams from through the island and outside of the state.
