The seniors were awesome! Dominating the veterans from the first whistle, the only thing that eluded them was finding the net. Numerous shots had the goalie reeling but Jay managed to keep all the shots out of the net in the 1st half. Debbie Chin made the goalie’s job a breeze by stopping all attacks and not allowing one shot on goal the entire period. The players honed in on their passing skills and moved the ball much more effectively in the second half, culminating in goals by Robert Vittiglio, Adam Strominger and Stefani Egre. The lone score for the veterans came just before the final whistle off Rich’s knee. The juniors were a lot closer, ending in a 4-4 tie. The Red Hot Apples had goals from Harrison Stein (2), Sam Duggan and Christopher Cooney. Tristan Yang had great passes and Andrea Cellucci was the star defender. The Super Grovers came back with goals by Nelson Molina (2), Josh Birnbaum and Nick Mininson. Charlie Hinz made 2 outstanding saves in goal and Josh Hom was the rock-solid defender. No practice next week but we’re back on May 30th. Rich Bletsch, Director

The New Hyde Park Lady Lynx U11(Current) Girls Soccer Team will be holding tryouts on May 26 and 28 from 5:30 PM until 7:00PM at the Garden City Park School located at 51 Central Ave NHP NY 11040. Interested players, all positions, looking for a competitive D1 LIJSL team moving to U12 and 11v11 next fall, should be at the field at 5:30 PM with shin guards and ball ready to play. All players must be born on or after August 1, 1997.


The overcast skies did not dampen the spirits of the TOPSoccer players and this week had some unprecedented events. Never before had both games ended in a tie with the same identical score of 4-4! The seniors got off to a slow start against the Veterans (coaches and parents) and were trailing at half-time, 2-1. However, they rested up and came out strong with some great teamwork and super passing. Stefani Egre and Andrea Matteo each scored once but it was Sammy Ho who rose to the occasion and blasted home a pair of goals. The Veterans had one goal by Stan and 2 by Darren but the goal which kept the Veterans in the contest was a huge shot from midfield by James past a startled goalie to keep the game within reach.

New Hyde Park Funeral Home “Cardinals”
Vs. Dominick’s Italian & American Deli “Marlins”

Despite the rain and a trimmed-down roster, the mighty Cardinals displayed spectacular fielding as well as patience at the plate against a very good Marlins team this evening Anthony Pitre and Christopher Delgiorno not only exhibited impressive power with four singles each, they both contributed defensively by turning spectacular double plays. Scott Schanter hit 2 singles and scored a run while Thomas Mangin hit 2 singles and made a tremendous play in the infield to end the threat of a huge Marlin rally. Ryan Cooney played solid defense by turning a double play of his own while Dylan Schmid once again flashed the leather in the outfield.
