With a successful fall season behind them, more than 100 players gathered on Saturday, Nov. 16, to battle it out on the John Maccarone Memorial Stadium playing fields in the first annual Kickball Turkey Bowl.

Even some of the referees, who are usually in the fields making the calls, got a chance to play.
The Midget Cardinals team has brought home the Super Bowl trophy with a 14 – 6 win over Brentwood.
Even with the temperatures below freezing and the wind making it worse – the stands were packed with the Cardinals fans cheering on the Midgets as they played against Brentwood for the Division 1 Championship title game.
Glen Cove Cardinals started out strong and the second play of the game Damon Garner Jr. ran 65 yards to score a touchdown. Mario Fischetti ran and scored the extra point. Then it was the defenses turn to show all they had by not letting Brentwood gain enough yards to make it to the end zone. At halftime the game was 7 – 0.
With grit, determination and all-out teamwork, the Friends Academy Boys Varsity Soccer team completed their quest for a third state soccer championship, defeating a tough Lansing High School, 1-0, in the New York Class C State Championships.
