Levittown PAL Sports Update
The Levittown PAL sixth-grade Tomahawks had a very impressive 8-3 win over Bayville on Sunday. As with all of their games this was a total team effort. Things didn't start out to good for the Tomahawks when Bayville came down on their first possession and scored right away to take an early lead. The Tomahawks responded with a goal from Brendan McNamara after getting a great feed from Daniel Maini. The defense was the key for this victory. Jordan Rose, Tyler Hasset, Maxwell Transou and Thomas McDevitt, anchored by Joseph Connors in the goal, held Bayville to two goals in the fist quarter and only one in the second. Middies Matthew Mascoli, Michael and Joseph Esposito, along with Dennis Rothar and Harry Sopp kept the ball in the Tomahawks' end of the field. Benefiting from all this was the offense Jamie McAndrew and Thomas Nuckel each put in goals in the first quarter and McAndrew adding another in the second to bring the score to 4-3 for halftime.
