New Hyde Park Wildcats Soccer Roundup
Last Saturday the New Hyde Park Wildcats hosted it's sixth annual LIJSL TOPSoccer Tournament at the Denton Avenue fields. While the day was overcast, we had one of our biggest turnouts. Teams from Sachem, Huntington, Smithtown, Garden City, Levittown, Rockville Centre, Oceanside and North Shore joined New Hyde Park to enjoy the sport played by thousands of other youngsters all across Long Island. The main reason our tournament is so successful is our volunteers. Sean McGonigle had a new challenge this year as we added one more field to our usual six, as the number of participants keeps growing. Sean and his band of markers (Kevin Walline, Curt Walline, Brian Evers, Bill Roulis and Joe Russotto), handled it seamlessly. Tony Perrone, Dave Gilroy, Joe Russotto and their staff got the nets to the fields nd set up well before the start of the first game at 9 a.m. (They also had to juggle the pick up of the nets and prepare for the afternoon intramural games as Manor Oaks was under water.) Tony arranged for volunteer referees to officiate all seven fields. They kept the games running smoothly and on time. While no scores are reported, or standings kept, all players were winners. A commemorative patch and medallion, which Debbie Gilroy makes sure is distinctive each tournament, is continues to be well-received by the players. The hot dogs were superbly prepared and timely delivered by Tony Minerva, Brenda Bletsch and Rich Bursig. Thanks to Tony for arranging for us to use the Garden City Park Fire House to cook the hot dogs. The Abberton's, the Solar's, the Bongiorno's, the Dowdell's, Mary Ann Minerva, Debbie Gilroy and a host of young helpers pitched in to serve the hundreds of drinks, hot dogs, snacks and candy to a much-appreciated, hungry band of soccer players.
