The Pantherettes continued with their aggressive and skillful playing, jumping out to a 5-0 lead in the first 20 minutes of the game. The girls completely changed their usual positions on the field as a sign of good sportsmanship, playing keep away for the next 50 minutes.

Spectacular game by all the girls! Starting our scoring was Diana whose constant pressure on E.M.'s goalie netted her goal. Jackie's speed gained her a goal past a diving goalie. Following was Jessica whose speed and tenacity got her two goals, Concita, playing out of her usual position scrambled for a loose ball in the box, popped it over E.M.'s goalie last but not least was Danielle driving the ball from midfield blasting over the goalie's head for our sixth. Jackie was superb up and down the field weaving around her opponents assisting on many goals.

Our midfielder Laura, Lauren, Maureen and Vikki were unbelievable winning almost every ball, breaking up any possible plays E.M. might attempt to move the ball downfield. Great teamwork, girls!

Crisp passing, communication and finishing will win a game every time. The Bobcats had a 3-0 victory over the RVC Flames. Fighting off two players, Tracey Uellendahl put a ball out wide to Lauren Bracchi for the first goal. Alisa Femia scored the second off of a deflected goal by the keeper. Stopper Nicole Fontana fed a nice ball to left wing Alisa for the third goal. Great game by Jackie Pryor, Elizabeth Brudnicki and Stephanie O'Brien. When tested a great game by keeper Kristin Lotito. On a picture perfect day, the Lady Cougars defeated East Meadow Hot Shots 2-0. After a scoreless and uneventful first half, the Lady Cougars came out storming in the second. Goalie Samantha Laszlo shut out the Hot Shots including a great save on a penalty shot. Nicole Dobranski, Katie Kennedy and Alison Kiernan held the aggressive Hot Shots at bay. Great heads up play by Dena Wlodarczyk on defense kicking a loose ball away at the goal line. Teresa Ferraro controlled the mid-field all game. On a sharp angle shot, the first goal was scored by Stefanie Kovacic off a sure-footed pass from Andrea Flori. Forwards Allie Bresso and Honor Adams fueled the offensive pressure setting up numerous opportunities. In the final minutes, Nicole DeNara put the game away with a blast into the upper corner of the net. The Cheshire Cats used a team effort of pinpoint passing to put on an offensive clinic in beating Plainedge 5-1. Jami Cantwell started the scoring with an excellent left footed shot off a Michele LaBarbera pass. Alison Dehler-Barnett netted the second by quickly following up a rebound off their keeper. Michelle then showed her own scoring touch with strong finishing moves and perfectly placed shots for the next two scores. The first came off an excellent centering pass from Meghan O'Leary. The second off an equally well placed pass by Kara Beardsley for the first of her two assists. Her second came off an equally well placed pass by Kara Beardsley for the first of her two assists. Her second came moments later when she found Katie Warren who had used her outstanding feel for the flow of the game to find an open spot to net the closing goal. Plainedge scored late to narrow the gap. Midfield dominance and total team effort yielded a terrific win for the Cyber Cats today as they downed the East Islip Pride by a score of 4-0. A scoreless and windy first half allowed the girls to pass and display ball control patterns to elude their opponents. Midfielders Lindsay Martin and Vicki Parente were unstoppable, winning balls and feeding them to the speedy Stefanie Santoli and Megan Stevens at wing. Scoring opened up 12 minutes into the second half as Christine Zenzerovic capitalized on a great pass from Vicki. Kim Costanzo scored next on a well placed high cross to the middle from Lindsay. Battling from the center midfield line, Kim maneuvered toward the net with goal #3 for the team. Relentless in her attack on the keeper from the forward line, Christine honed in on another high cross from Lindsay to score her second goal for the game and wrap up the team win at 4-0. Super effort by Genna Himmelstein at stopper and Carolyn Durniak in fullback. The Cats opened the regular season with a smashing victory over the Arrows. The game started off with the Cats dominating play in front of the Arrows net, but the Arrows were still able to score first. The Cats tied the score when Kathleen Mikowski placed a perfect free kick to the far post where Kristen Trebing punched the ball in for a goal. The Cats took control in the second half. Corinn Jordan crossed the ball in to the far post where Lisa Pagano, the first half goalie, was waiting for the score. Corinn and Kathleen kept up the pressure and scored unassisted goals to put the game out of reach. The Arrows did not quit, and it took excellent defensive play from Kelli Gracia, Allison Kramer, Cheryl Lee and Christine Turley to keep the Arrows at bay. Christine Prizeman, Jamie Fazio and Laura Vosswinkel hustled in the midfield setting up the speedy Tara Loonie for some strong shots at net. Kristen was outstanding in goal in the second half as was Lisa in the first half, and each goalie tallied a goal. Great game ladies.

The Kickcats traveled out to West Babylon to do battle with a tough Aftershock team. The first half was all Aftershock, as the girls faced a strong 25 MPH wind. Devon was spectacular in goal, making some tough saves. Keri and Marielle had super games on defense, stopping a strong Aftershock attack all game. Janyne's strong right foot cleared the ball from our zone and made West Babylon's attack take the long route to our net. Jessica, along with some strong play by Lizzie and Sonia held the middle of the field against larger and strong opposition.

The only goal of the game came three minutes into the second half, Janyne on a penalty kick from 30 yards out launched a bullet toward the upper left corner of the net. A spectacular save by the Aftershock goal tender prevented the score, but she could not control the ball and a streaking Kristina P. banged it in for the winner. The Kickcats threatened for most of the half, but couldn't get an insurance goal. Stephanie and Ilana had strong second halves. Nice start to the season Kickcats.

The Kickcats hosted the CSH Twisters and came away with a tie in an 85 degree nail biter. The Kickcats opened the scoring at the 20 minute mark of the first half when Jessica made a nice lead pass to Sonia, who broke in all alone on a surprised CSH goalie for the early lead. Keri played a solid game at sweeper, along with some solid play by fullbacks Marielle, Stephanie and Christina G. The Twisters tied the game just before the half on an obvious two player off side that went uncalled. Strong goal tending again today by Katie and Devon insured the tie. The early season heat wilted the Kickcat offense a bit, but definitely a good start to the season Kickcats. The Pumas opened league play with stellar defense and a potent offense. Alex, Ali and Lori opened the scoring and put the game away. Ro, Christy and Tracy's tenacious defense made Allison's shutout all the easier. Liz's, Meghan's, Evelyn's and Maria's goals added to the rout. Jessica, Sarah, Carolyn and Puja contributed to an all around excellent effort by the Pumas. The coaches wish to thank the parents whose support makes this all possible.

The Speedy Cats triumphed over the Stony Brook Shooting Stars 1-0 in what seemed to be a never ending game. First half goalie Christine Coven had some great saves but the defensive play by Katie Nilsen, Denis Ingram and Jessica Connaughton made the job easier. A backward kick by Colleen Holahan and some well placed headers by Marie LaMaida made the game even more exciting! The Speedy Cats had many shots on goal and some beautiful corner kicks by Nicole Thomas just missing the net ending.

The first half 0-0. For the second half, the Speedy Cats kicked into a higher gear. Angela Cass, Mary Lou Donovan, Jessica Galante and Diane McCormack hustled to bring the ball up.

A beautiful header pass by Christine Coven resulted in a much deserved goal by Mary Lou Donovan (her second in two games). Excellent passing by all and super goal tending by Katie Nilsen secured the win and shut out ending a 1-0 game. Keep it up Speedy Cats!

The StrayCats started off their season with a hard fought victory over the East Meadow Avengers. The first half was a seesaw battle as the StrayCats dominated play and then the Avengers. The girls tallied the first score as stopper Lauren Castilla controlled the ball from midfield, dribbled past a defender and fed a perfect pass to Jessica Busardo who converted for the go ahead goal. The midfield play of Xania Saldana, Alyson Rose and Lindsay Rella kept the Cats on top. However, with minutes left in the half, the Avengers knotted the score. In the second half the girls settled down and played more aggressively. Mary Hess and Kristina DiCostanzo saw action at wing as the StrayCats mounted an attack. Vicki Nikic's cross to Michelle Galante was the game winner as Michele scored her first StrayCat goal. The return of Vjosa Isein was important as she helped control the backfield. Eileen Hunt was nearly flawless in goal, shutting down the Avengers in the second half.

The season opener was an exciting end to end game. After falling behind the Cats tied the score with Cassie Green's great throw-in and Maria Saitta scoring the goal from just inside the meter line. Janelle Reif played very well in goal.

The Cats took the lead in the second half. Kimberley Grammas took a hard shot from outside the meter line, Maria shot the rebound and Cassie scored on the second rebound. We had another similar scoring chance with Elise Messina and Katie Shea but could not put the ball in the net. Defensively we played a strong game led by Shannon Lovisi, Katie Roth and Nicole DeSimone. Strong goaltending by Sarah Ricchuiti, including one fantastic save.

The coaches are all starting to see all of your hard work pay off.

The Aristocats finally opened their spring season after two weekends of rainouts. A lethargic start in the first half put the team in whole from which it never escaped. First half standouts were Ashley Felcon with some aggressive midfield play, and Paige Darby with some tough tackling and clearing kicks from the back. Starting the second half down 1-0, the Aristocats never really came to life until Valley Stream knocked in the second goal off of a free kick. The rest of the game saw our offense led by Melissa Fulgenzi at forward, and Alicia DeMarco at midfield, press the attack. The Aristocats' score came from some determined play in the Valley Stream box, as Alicia DeMarco played the ball to Suzie Jozkowski who knocked it into the net to get the team back on track. Danielle Losonci provided some smart, solid play in the net. Lauren Marra and Jennifer Fabian continued with some aggressive midfield play. All right girls, the winter's rust is shaken off, now let's prepare to go full tilt in our upcoming Cup games! Our opening game in Division Two was against our rival in Division Three West Islip Thunder. Our Lady Jaguars came out strong, led by Samantha Robbins' blast which put us up 1-0. Lauren Baumann's aggressiveness kept West Islip pinned in their box. Pamela Fiorillo found nothing but net to give us a 2-0 lead. In the closing minutes the Thunder cut our lead to 2-1. Early in the second half, a misplayed ball by the Lady Jaguars allowed the Thunder to tie the score. Once again Samantha Robbins corner found Meaghan Dolce who slammed in the go ahead goal. But West Islip's midfielders' passing and beating us to the ball, scored two unanswered goals for the victory. In a game that was much closer than the score would indicate, the Lady Leopards dropped a 3-1 decision to HBC in the league opener. The first half was a see saw battle. Diana Buccella, Andrea Hiebler, and Michelle Colletti led a spirited defensive effort. Laura Sasso and Jen Capasso were the midfield catalysts. The Hurricanes took advantage of a defensive lapse with seconds remaining to score the half's only goal. In the second half the Hurricanes increased the offensive pressure. A fortuitous header off a throw in gave them their second goal. The Leopards were not ready to lie down and answered with a goal of their own. Katherine Hock took a ball in the offensive third and deposited it into the net. Katie Sakowich and Lauren Spota led a second half offensive surge however, the Leopards could not hit paydirt. A late HBC goal gave them their margin of victory. Patti Leahy was sensational in goal making several outstanding saves.

The Lady Starcats played the makeup of 1st round of the Waldbaum's Cup, shorthanded by two players on the field!

Despite this overwhelming obstacle, the girls played very hard against a physical team. Despite being outnumbered, our girls played the opposition, kick for kick. Monica Soluri was phenomenal in goal, making several great saves and consistently power punting the ball up the mid-court line.

Because of our player shortage, many of our girls played multiple positions. Chiara Imbriano showed great two way play as Center fullback and midfielder, displaying toughness and speed on defense and aggressiveness on offense. Meaghan Houst had several shots on goal that didn't find the net as center fullback in the second half. Meaghan's goal kicks were awesome. Emily Glenn also showed great two way play, displaying speed and toughness. Samantha Kunion played a strong game both as halfback and fullback fighting for the ball and pushing it up. Christine Cusumano played forward and midfield pushing the ball up.

All of our girls played very hard and determined despite being outnumbered on the field. They have nothing to feel bad about. The true mark of a champion team is how it performs under adverse conditions. Although the score does not reflect it our girls, each and every one of them, are champions. Your coaches and parents are very proud of you all. Let's move on to the next game!

The Snow Leopards suffered a disappointing 2-0 loss to Stony Brook. This was a game where two different teams showed up to play. In the first half the girls completely dominated the opponent and played in their opponents half for the entire period, but the girls could not cash in. However the second half started in complete confusion when the ref asked one of our players to leave the field because of wearing jewelry. Before the Snow Leopards knew what happened, Stony Brook scored on their first possession for the early lead and never looked back. In spite of the score, there were outstanding performances. Katie Snell was sensational on the offensive attack and was on the money with her driving corner kicks. A solid performance in the middle by Monika Junker and the aggressive play by Cynthia Rossi helped set up numerous scoring opportunities for the Snow Leopards. Danielle Fazzolari and Lisa Gulino were solid on the defense end. Hang tough girls and put this one behind us.

Welcome back to a team who worked continuously all winter. Masapequa's Arsenal was an even match for the Bengals. First half, Tommy Jelcic, Ryan Leung, Tommy Heller held off the Arsenal. Terrific passes by Matt Dellabonta, Ryan Campsan and Chris Lang.

After trailing 0-1 in the first half, Pete Zimmerman put one in. Ian Ciesla was strong in midfield. Fernando Gualatuna and Robby Russell kept the play in the Bengal area. The second goal was put in by Matt D. John Motta played tough to make sure Massapequa wouldn't tie it up. And Chris Sawicki made some incredible saves to help the Bengals have their first win this spring season. I guess all the conditioning does pay off!

Strong peformance by Kenny Z. who had one goal and assisted on a beautiful goal by Brian C. The last goal was scored by Andrew M. Assisted by Conrad T. and Jonathan C. Good midfield play by Mark R., Jake A., Jesse W. and Joe V. Solid defense by Paul H., Kyle S. Kyle R. and Joe G. Good goalkeeping by Patrick D.

The Magic Cats came out shooting. Chris Garcia started the attack netting the first goal.

Justin Soluri led the charge with four goals. Pasquale playing aggressive ball scored two goals.

In the second half, Robbie Nilsen, playing determined soccer in forward, blasted the ball into the net. John Fini came up from defense and found the net to finish our scoring. Patrick Carter, Mike Nathan and Peter Zappella played great in defense. Keep up the good work.

The Stormcats blasted the Merrick Arruzzi 4-1 in a Division 1 contest.

The Stormcats dominated from the start. Dan Duras hits the crossbar and Joe Marrano heads the ball in for our first goal. Eric Andreuzzi lifted a corner kick over the goal and onto the foot of Dan Duras to end the half.

Merrick opened the second half scoring with a nifty move past our defenders. Eric carried the ball up the left side and made a brilliant cross to Joe M. for our third goal. With a couple of minutes left, Justin Brobst made a spectacular cross to Dan Duras who netted his second goal of the contest.

Robert Morici, Christian Uy, Alex Neystat and Robby Kassoff were brilliant as usual on defense. Mike McHale, Chris Dijanic and Joe Incalcatera hustled after every loose ball. Danny Gangale boomed his punts from goal. The boys played an all-around great game and are 2-0 in Division 1 contests.

Well done boys.

The Stormcats beat a very tough opponent in the Massapequa United. The United scored the only goal in the first half. Mike McHale, Chris Dijanic, Justin Brobost and Eric Andreuzzi were hustling but the United "D" was spectacular.

A couple of minutes into the second half, Christian Uy severed the United D and scored. Then Robby Kassoff passed to Dan Duras who blastd a shot past the goalie.

Danny Gangale made some terrific saves in goal and the defense of Joe Incalcaterra, Robert Morici and Alex Neystat kept us in this tough win.

Well done boys!

The boys flirted with danger in this one. They watched a 5-2 lead become 5-4 on two quick runs by the Bomber team, but time ran out in our favor. Adam Morris had a hat trick, two of his goals were scored on fine crossing passes from his brother Neal and the third was unassisted. Matt Philbin scored on an assist by Matt Santalesa with midfield help from Sean and Enrique. Chris Viviano scored an unassisted goal when the ball was brought out of our defense end by Alejandro and Joe Fricione. Justin, James and Thomas Ambrose were tough as usual in midfield. Tommy Corey again held his own in goal. Boys! How about not making it so close next week. Battlecats come close, even after a goal giving us a 2-1 lead was taken away on a questionable infraction call. Joe Chappory threaded the needle on a penalty shot and it was Joe again hitting the corner from a clearing play by Peter Burger, over to midfielder Dave Kimble, and briskly over to Joe for the shot. Solid offensive efforts from Juan Flores and Andrew Simms. Eric Iocco once again was called to serve in different positions, and came thru as usual. Nice efforts from Brian Eilbott and Robert Snell. Richie Crifasi once again solid in goal. The Jaguars played a tough group of Roadrunners to a tie but not without some exciting moments. Both goals were scored with the wind, ours in the first half and theirs in the second. Shawn's goal was a perfect place shot just over the outstreched hand of the goalie. Jimmy made his presence known controlling the middle and the defense of Danny, Michael and Chris was solid. David and Greg played hard on the left side creating many opportunities that just went wide or high in the first half. Keep working hard, the Cup games are next week.
