The Robert M. Finley Middle School eighth-grade softball team finished their season undefeated with 10 wins and one tie. Pre-season was a time of uncertainty for the Big Red. Many girls that had formerly played softball for the city of Glen Cove did not sign up to participate in the middle school program. Knowing that there was a possibility of the team disbanding, the girls worked together to persuade their peers to join the team; among those players were Cheryse Johnson, Germalis Marte, Brenda Martinez, and Irene Sanchez. The girls worked hard to learn the sport. As a result of fundamental coaching and the experienced girls helping their inexperienced teammates, they were contributing members to an undefeated season.
The Glen Cove Junior Lacrosse Club’s seasons came to an end at the Nassau County PAL Lacrosse Jamboree held at SUNY Farmingdale College. On Saturday, June 9, the seventh- and eighth grade “Late Knights” wrapped up their season in style by defeating Elwood. Glen Cove scored nine goals by seven different players to showcase the way they’ve moved the ball throughout the entire season. Geoff Field and Nick Schneider finished a great season by adding two more goals to their tallies. Dante Castillo, Jared Buehre, Michael Peyton, Sean Maleady and Michael Hatala each added a goal to spread the wealth. Midfielders Peyton and Nick Kiaer controlled several loose balls that led to some offensive production. Defense was once again stellar as the tandem of Max Sutherland and Perry King combined for 14 saves. The coaching trio of Doug Schneider, Chris Pace, Rob Field, with the late season addition of cousin Larry, should be commended for the terrific season the boys had as they jelled together as a team.
The second-grade boys lacrosse team was at it again last weekend. This time they would face-off against the likes of tough Huntington and Cold Spring Harbor lacrosse clubs. On Friday night, June 1, under the lights in Huntington, Glen Cove’s offense came out swinging with Will Feldmann tallying an early goal to set the tone. A tough first half ensued and the offense was held in check. The defense, led by Drew Guster and Liam Nielsen battled hard to get the ball back from Huntington’s potent offense. In what seems like a trend, the half ended at Huntington 5, Glen Cove 1. The second half started with another goal by Feldmann and a very exciting back and forth competition between the two squads. Charlie Benazzi had several good clears and broke through for a goal in the fourth quarter to get the game to 5-3. Unfortunately, GC could get no closer and the game ended with a 6-3 defeat. These boys from Glen Cove are starting to win the little battles within the game that indicate a win could be on the way.

Michael Useda had three hits as Ian Cukro (scored a run) and Ryan McCormick had two hits apiece in the Storm’s 10-5 loss at the hands of the Bats. The Storm then lost to the Sea Dogs, 18-11, despite timely hitting from Evan Stogner (two doubles); Michael Useda (double and one hit) and Rodni Leftwich (double and hit)...The Sea Dogs themselves lost to the Hooks, 16-8. The Sea Dogs scored six runs in the sixth inning led by Max Duchnal, Ryan Serrano and Chris Gielbeda, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Hooks’ huge lead. The Sea Dogs’ Coloseno Bianco was a force behind the plate as Zach Gotterbarn and Genalie Prezeali were kept busy on the leftside of the outfield. Devin Maisunet, Anthony DiLeo, Joey Rant all went four-for-four with a combined six RBI in the team’s 10-5 win against the Storm. The Sea Dog outfield of Troy Wright, Jake Casale, Matt Bailey and Noah Capps anchored the defense.
The second-grade Glen Cove Junior Lacrosse “Knights” kicked off the annual Glen Cove Lacrosse Day on Saturday, May 12, with an exciting game against an experienced squad from Syosset. The Glen Cove players continued to show great effort and determination, even after they were trailing, throughout the game. Mike Mattern showed a lot of courage when he stepped in as goalkeeper for the first time this season. He made several great saves, never shying away from the fast hard ball that was thrown at him. Ryan Houghton and Micah Stone each scored their first goal of the season with strong runs to the cage. Matthew Small was aggressive and won a number of face-offs for the team and Charlie Benazzi had an impressive breakaway play. The young Knights are improving with each and every game.
