Thunder 7’s Maroon Travel to Floral Park

Written by Louis Minuto Friday, 15 October 2010 00:00

GC Thunder 7’s Maroon traveled to Floral Park for their fourth game of the season, and immediately went to work on offense as Willie Blair chose heads and won the coin toss. Pierce Archer cut his way through the defense, with great blocks by Michael Tully, and Joseph Donovan, that ultimately led to his 50-yard touchdown run, his first of two on the day. From there, it was all Thunder offense, executing plays they labored over in practice. Tommy Boland taking the snaps, Thomas McAuley, Michael Haass with big runs wearing down the Titan front line and linebacker core leading to Thunder touchdowns by Grant Molloy, and by Griffin Minuto. Aiden Magnotta supplying the extra point, and Garden City was showing the results of strong coaching in a well-executed bounce back performance.

The Divas have become a well-known group within our town and a familiar fixture at the St. Paul’s meeting spot.

FLG 2015 Garden City Lacrosse Players Getting it Done at Any Level

Friday, 17 September 2010 00:00

Garden City’s Matthew Borges, Kyle Brattan, Nick Gray, Bryan Irwin, Scott Irwin, Brogan Mahon, Jack Tigh and Thomas Wright all contributed to FLG’s lacrosse program this summer. Massapequa-based For the Love of the Game (FLG) Boys 2015 Lacrosse Team had a successful record this summer, winning four out of six tournaments: The Juvenile Diabetes Tournament in Massapequa, Upper Atlantic in Downingtown, PA, Beast of the East, in Amherst, MA and the Harvard Crimson Tournament in Cambridge, MA. Four tournaments were played at their seventh grade age level while tournaments Tri State in Princeton NJ and Lax Max in York PA were each played at the eighth grade age level. While the increase in age level was harder, it helped prepare the 23 players for the eighth-grade level. As the season progressed, the team developed a much greater intellect for the game. Additionally, the coaching staff noticed the team skills growing along with the team chemistry, as well as the Boys overall excitement. During the season and while attending FLG’s one-week summer camp, lifelong friendships were ultimately built.
