The KappaSigma fraternity of Adelphi University hosted the Nassau County PAL Special Needs Unit’s Flag Football team for a game on Monday night, November 28. It was the last game of the fall season for the PAL team.
The weather was crisp and clear, the lights were bright and the turf was perfect. With their offence and defense playing for keeps, the 18 athletes held their own against a very fast fraternity team. The game was a seesaw battle and was tied at 19-all when, with only 56 seconds left, a long run off a handoff put the PAL team up by 6.
Operation Baggataway was started two years ago by members of the North Shore Lacrosse Club to address the recreational needs of our soldiers abroad.

Kevin reached out to the Embassy and helped start the program of supplying new and used adult lacrosse equipment to the soldiers abroad.
The 11-u Glen Cove Comanchees travel baseball team played in last month’s inaugural Nassau County Fall Baseball Tournament at the Mitchell Field Complex in Uniondale. In this tournament, the two top teams from each division play for the championship, so winning our opening games was imperative.

The Cardinals played their best game of the season in this second round playoff game on the road at Levittown. The Cardinals’ offense, led by Forrest Demetri(QB), struck early on the opening drive which set the stage for their offensive dominance the rest of the game. Dominick Genzale(RB) was on fire all game, running for 4 touchdowns behind an offensive line led by Lorenzo Recine and Kevin Napier, who dominated Levittown at the line of scrimmage. Mario Fischetti (RB) added 2 long touchdown runs, and Gianni Aboulehassan (FB) pounded Levittown’s defense on the ground.
The Girls Varsity Tennis Team completed this 2011 season as Conference IIIA’s Division Champions. What an exciting time it was! At the same time, a bittersweet one, since 11 members of the team are seniors and will be off to college next year.
Glen Cove finished the season with a 9-3 record. As the #1 seed, Glen Cove’s playoff game was against Conference IIIB’s Carle Place. Carle Place was really on their game and was victorious. Still, Glen Cove should be proud of their first-place finish, since it has been more than 15 years since Glen Cove has achieved that level of success.

The North Shore Junior Varsity boys soccer team finished off their season with a promising record of 6-4-1. They started out with a new coach, Kevin Carpenter, and new players who all contributed to the team’s success.
The team started practicing vigorously in late August, and through their practice came great success. The players started off with the basics, and eventually worked their way up to a higher level, increasing their skill level each day. The three captains, Doug Manouge, Connor Costello and Logan Kuperferman, helped to organize the practices and make the practice experience better for the whole team. With enough practices, the team was comfortable playing with each other and were ready to play in games.

Glen Floors played Downtown Café on a rainy Friday night. Everyone was excited to play under the bright stadium lights as it was Division 1B’s first night game. Downtown Café scored the first goal of the game surprising Glen Floors. Glen Floors came back with a goal by John Michael Ktistakis from the midfield. Both teams appeared evenly matched and kept the ball moving back and forth from offense to defense. Great defense was played by Ktistakis, Gino Gallizzi and Noah Kopetic who repeatedly tried to stop Downtown Cafe’s fastest player. Glen Floors succeeded in scoring two other goals by Christopher Gielbeda. Skillful passing by Matthew Basil and Noah Capps assisted Gielbeda with scoring. The Glen Floors boys hustled the entire evening and were able to prevail with a 1-goal lead by the end of the game. Great job Glen Floors!
