Island Trees Sports High School Athletes
The Island Trees Girls' Varsity Soccer team began its season last week. The Lady Bulldogs, who were County Semi-Finalists last year, played two games. The season opener against Bethpage resulted in a 4-2 win. Goalie Kristina Ruff, along with the defense led by Michelle DiFede, Jen D'Albenzio and Janine Sciaretta, held the Bethpage team scoreless until late in the second half. Scoreres were Chelsea Marciano (2 goals), Melissa Santor and Kerianne Spiess. In the second game the Lady Dawgs lost a tough game to East Meadow, who is favored to win the conference. At half time the score was 0-0. The defense held the East Meadow attack and Kristina Ruff made several excellent saves. However, East Meadow got two goals in the second half to prevail.
Red Devils Football
On Sunday, Sept. 13, Pee Wee Gray played its home opener against Copiague Silver. After coasting to a 39-7 win over Syosset a week ago, Gray was ready to go to battle against an always tough Copiague team. Gray started the game on offense with a starting offensive line of George Athan, Mike Rakatzis, Chris Nickel, Nicky Bristoll, Bryant (Who Let The Dogs Out) Peterson, Zack Trimboli and Center Dakota Bransfield. Damian Calderon, Davey Grecsek and Mike James were substituted in and out of the game on the offensive and defensive lines and were integral parts of the winning combination. The starting backfield consisted of quarterback Bryan Verbitsky, and running backs Anthony Ciaramitaro, Joey Leonard and Timmy Michels. Daniel Barlett who missed Gray's first game (against his will, due to prior family obligations), was used as a multi-purpose player on offense. At times he played quarterback and at times he played running back.
