Mineola FC Clips Red Wings

Brian Heckelman and Peter Murphy’s defending held the Smithtown Red Wings in check the entire game as the BU10 Mineola FC team advanced to the Long Island Cup quarterfinal round with a 2-0 victory on Saturday, April 12. Liam Russelman scored first for

Mineola, taking a ball from the left sideline and cutting in along the top of the Smithtown box, where he launched a shot into the left corner of the RedWings goal.

 

The 1-0 lead lasted for most of the game, until Liam Going sidestepped three Red Wings defenders, drove to the net and slid a hard shot into the back of the net. Mineola improved to 4-0 in all competitions with the win.

Lightning Slow Down Blazers

The BU16 Mineola Lightning soccer team advanced to the third round of the Long Island Cup with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over the Bethpage Blazers on Sunday, April 13. The Blazers kept the Lightning on their heels for much of the first half, keeping the ball in the Mineola end of the field but the Lightning defense, led by keeper Joe Martins, kept Bethpage scoreless.

 

The Lightning didn’t waste much time breaking a scoreless tie when midfielder Manny DeMatos found a loose ball in front of the Blazers goal and sent it to the back of the net less than two minutes into the second half. Midfielders Andy Gaitan and Ronald Laurice stepped up in the second half to help keep Bethpage under pressure in their own half of the field.

 

Team defense has paced the Lightning so far this season, as Mineola has allowed just one goal through their first three matches of the season.

Mustangs Sting Vipers, Advance To LI Cup Semi’s

The GU15 Mineola Mini-Mustangs beat the Valley Stream Vipers 3-2 in a quarterfinal match of the Long Island Cup on Sunday, April 13. Valley Stream controlled much of the first half and put constant pressure on the Mineola defense.

 

Mineola held on as Michelle Viola’s effort and speed cut down a Vipers breakaway just as a goal seemed imminent. Ultimately, that pressure led to two Vipers scores, one off a penalty kick and another off a header.

 

Mineola scrambled to find a goal before halftime. Allison Lamonica was the catalyst, finishing a long run on the right side with a hard cross that slid past the Vipers keeper to Mineola’s Samantha Lima, who calmly tapped in the goal to get her team back in the game.

 

Mineola started the second half strong and began to seize momentum and control of the game. A minute into the second half, Brianna O’Brien’s crisp pass set Christen Patalano in on goal all alone, only to be whistled in an offside position. Minutes later Lamonica drove a ball from the top of the box inches wide of the upper right corner of the goal.

 

Mineola kept pressing and eventually found the equalizer. Lamonica deftly changed direction and cut across the inside top of the box and drove a left-footed shot past a screened Valley Stream keeper and into the net.

 

The Mineola defense, led by Brianna Lopes and goalkeeper Natalia Cotto, turned aside several Vipers attacks. Mineola’s fullbacks began to wear down the Vipers offense in a tough, physical game.

 

Annie Cripps, Jillian Palma, Natalia Terezakis , Valerie Cobos and Meghan Lafaye constantly spurred the Mineola counter-attack with solid defensive plays. With five minutes to go, the Mini-Mustangs were buzzing, having two consecutive corner kicks turned aside by the solid Vipers defense.

 

A clearing pass found Terezakis and the savvy Mineola player slid a perfect pass to Lamonica, who angled in from the left sideline before launching a 30-yard strike into the far, upper corner of the Vipers goal.

Sports

The Mineola Mustangs ended last year’s playoff run in a 34-6 drubbing from the West Hempstead Rams. Mineola was poised for another post season push in 2014 and it showed last week, with a 15-14 victory over the Rams in homecoming weekend.

 

With a slow start in the first half, Mineola (4-1) put their first points on the board in the second quarter with a field goal by senior Robert Lang.  After a touchdown by the Rams (2-3), they headed into halftime 7-3.

FC Mineola Stumbles Against Hota

Despite two goals from Liam Going, the BU11 Mineola FC squad fell to a relentless and talented Hota Panthers team at Soccer Park in Plainview on Sept. 6.  Hota jumped out to a 4-0 lead before Going connected on his first tally, launching a 30-yard free kick that dropped over the Hota keeper. The Mineola striker’s second goal brought his team to within two goals of their opponent, but Hota scored several more goals in the second half in a strong performance.  Mineola’s Nicholas Buffolino and Luke Sommese gave solid efforts for Mineola in the season-opener for both teams.
