Garden City Defeats Roslyn 2-0

Written by Ed Rotondo Friday, 05 October 2012 00:00

Trojans beat a scrappy Bulldogs squad on a pair of second half goals

The Garden City boys came out recently on their home turf fired up and looking to get on the winning side of the ledger against Roslyn. From the opening touch, the GC boys played with intensity; they were seemingly first to every loose ball, challenged all 50-50 chances or jumped higher for any headers in the air. With the game being played with a somewhat “ugly” style of soccer in the first half, the Trojans intensity carried the game. Once the GC boys settled down in the second half and began controlling the ball, the offense took over and produced two goals for the win.

Early in the first half, Garden City put the pressure on the Roslyn defense and finally broke through with a goal by Patrick Keogh off a deflected cross by Jack Gillan. The goal was a good example that hard work pays dividends, as Gillan fought through the Bulldogs defense to get the ball into the box. The second goal came with about 15 minutes left in the game and was scored by Gillan. This time it was about being in the right place and having a quicker step to the ball as he jumped between two defenders and placed his shot inside the left post for the 2-0 lead.

 

HOTA Lightning Girls SC Marches In German-American Stueben Parade

Friday, 28 September 2012 00:00

“HOTA… HOTA… HOTA…” chanted the Franklin Square, Floral Park, and Garden City girls from the HOTA soccer club as they marched in the spirited German-American Stueben Parade on Saturday, Sept. 15 in New York City.

Staged as the 7th division in the parade line, a little waiting on 58th Street didn’t put a damper on the girls’ spirits.  They used up the time to build camaraderie by sharing city pretzels, buying German flags, and stocking up on other fun trinkets from street vendors.  HOTA Lightning Coach Greg Shevlin said, “There’s a feeling of community among the girls – it’s a great way to honor HOTA’s heritage and build solidarity.”

NY Islanders Hold Tryouts For 2012-13 Ice Girls

Written by Karen Gellender Friday, 31 August 2012 00:00
A blazingly hot August day is a great time to head to Iceworks just to cool off, but the dozens of young women who showed up to the Syosset ice rink on Sunday, Aug. 12 had something more ambitious in mind: showing off their skating skills to win one of just 10 spots on the New York Islanders 2012-13 Ice Girls Team.

With the exception of one lockout season (2004-05), the Ice Girls have been part of the show at Islanders’ games since the 2001-02 season. In addition to presenting the Islanders flag at every game, Ice Girls keep the ice clean during games, and perform an additional routine when the team wins. They also play games with the fans in the stands during time outs and distribute T-shirts. The girls must be over 18 with strong skating skills, capable of skating backwards as well as doing lunges, spirals, t-stops and power crossovers.
