Mineola BU9 Take One, Drop One

The BU9 Mineola Mighty’s Liam Going, off a nifty combination play from teammates Greg Kenney and Jack Flood, scored his second goal of the game to give Mineola a 3-2 win over Wantagh on April 27.  Jack Flood scored Mineola’s other goal, off a terrific shot early in the first half.

 

Mineola goalkeepers Luke Sommese and Andrew Pizzardi played solidly in front of a defense led by Malcolm DeCollibus and Michael Duda.  In their second weekend game, Mineola fell to Massapequa 3-0.  Massapequa’s tough defense denied Mineola any solid chances all game. The Mighty were led by solid all-around games from Thomas Daly and Mattheus Silva.

 

Mineola Tops New Hyde Park

The GU14 Mineola Mustangs held on to defeat the New Hyde Park Tigers 2-1 on April 27.  Gretchen Keller started the scoring for Mineola, looping a ball into the corner of the NHP goal early in the first half.  Minutes later, Emma Feimer’s shot from outside the box nicked off teammate Katie Russelman’s head through the goalkeeper’s hands for a 2-0 lead. 

 

Mineola seemed poised to strike again moments later, as Brianna O’Brien’s deft move in the box led to an open shot in front of the NHP net. The Tigers’ keeper denied O’Brien a goal with a nice save.  As the first half came to a close, the momentum started shifting to the Tigers. 

 

Halfway through the second half, the Tigers were awarded a penalty kick and their talented striker squeezed her shot past a diving Natalia Cotto.  The Tigers constantly attacked over the final 15 minutes of the game, but Cotto and Mineola’s terrific backline of Jillian Palma, Meghan Lafaye, Brianna Lopes, Annie Cripps and Valerie Cobos were up to the challenge, constantly clearing aside loose balls and rebounds to secure the victory.

The Mineola School Board will hold a public hearing on the much-debated New York State veterans exemption on Thursday, Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the Willis Avenue School. It is expected the board will either approve or disapprove the tax exemption during its regular meeting at 7 p.m.

When votes go to the polls next week on Tuesday, Nov. 4 to vote on the Town of North Hempstead’s 2nd Council District seat, candidate Bonnie Parente feels her stance on the building department is what voters will remember when casting their choice. The 2nd council district post is currently held by Peter Zuckerman, a former East Hills trustee. He was appointed to the seat in January to replace Thomas Dwyer, who resigned last year.

 

“That’s the major issue I heard about when I knocked on doors,” she said. “No matter where I am, I could be at the Herricks Community Center or the Albertson Pasta Dinner and

predominately what people ask about is how to fix the building department.”

Samantha Pastore

Samantha Pastore, senior and third-year varsity player, is also co-captain of the currently undefeated (11-0) Mineola Girls Varsity Volleyball team. She is an outside hitter and is often recognized in games by starting rallies with her quick thinking and nimble feet. She earns 20 percent of the team’s points and averages four aces per match.

The Mineola Mustangs varsity football team fell to the Seaford Vikings last week 27-21, missing their chance to tie the top seeds Locust Valley and Roosevelt’s 6-1 Nassau conference IV record.

 

After tying the game in the second half and having the opportunity to capitalize on Seaford’s failed extra-point kick on their final touchdown, the Viking’s senior wide receiver/defensive back Bobby Buell knocked away a pass from Mineola senior quarterback James Gerstner to senior wide receiver Brian Smith in the end-zone with 57 seconds left
