Ferraros Bring Elite Hockey To Eisenhower Park

Written by Cory Twibell, Friday, 25 January 2013 00:00

World-class sports facility

comes to Nassau County

Call it a coincidence, but the timing for Chris and Peter Ferraro’s announcement of the creation of a new hockey and recreation facility couldn’t be any better.

Two days before the National Hockey League was set to drop the puck for a shortened, 48-game season beginning on Jan. 19, the Ferraro twins – former NHL players and Olympians themselves – broke ground on their $15 million, privately financed Twin Rinks Ice Center at Eisenhower Park.

“It is our passion to support Long Island families so that they will no longer have to be torn apart or have their family life disrupted just because a child excels in hockey and wants to try to make it to the NHL,” said Chris Ferraro. “This facility will enable us to create a hockey hot bed right here on Long Island.”

Waldorf School’s Varsity Boys Soccer Team Wins IPPSAL Championship

Friday, 28 December 2012 00:00

For the fourth time in the past five years, Waldorf’s Varsity Boys Soccer Team traveled on Friday, Oct, 26 – just before Hurricane Sandy hit the region – to Locust Valley’s Portledge School, (a neutral site), in order to play in the IPPSAL Boys Soccer Championships. This year’s opponent was Lawrence Woodmere Academy (LWA) who split the regular season games with Waldorf, each earning a win and suffering a loss.

Waldorf started the game with the season’s trademark offensive surge - and with just a little more than six minutes into the game, junior tri-captain midfielder Peter Escribano neatly tucked the ball into the far post off a throw-in from senior tri-captain midfielder Orin Pearce. After five more shots that kept the LWA goalkeeper very busy, Pearce had another long throw-in that senior forward Marco Spitaliere fired into the near post for the 2-0 Waldorf lead. LWA started its own offensive rush and scored; cutting the Waldorf lead at the end of the first half to 2-1.
