West Hempstead Stops Mineola FC

The BU10 Mineola FC team played to a frustrating scoreless draw with the West Hempstead Titans at Soccer Park in Plainview on April 26.  Mineola had numerous chances to score but the talented goalkeeper for the Titans made several diving and sprawling saves, including a terrific reaction save against Mineola’s Liam Going from five yards away to send a hard shot over the bar.

 

Mineola continued to press and eventually found the winner, or so they thought.

 

Going’s tough shot from the right side was saved yet again by the West Hempstead goalie, but the rebound fell to the path of the onrushing Liam Russelman, who calmly drove the ball into the net. As Mineola celebrated, the referee signaled that Russelman had been in an offside position, therefor negating the apparent winning goal.

 

Chris Feathers, Luke Sommese and Peter Murphy starred on the field for Mineola, limiting the Titans attack. Mineola improved to 2-0-1 on the season.

 

Bay Shore Holds Off Lightning

 

The BU16 Mineola Lightning suffered their first loss of the season to Bay Shore Juventus, 2-0 at Wilson Park on April 26. Playing through rain showers, the Lightning found themselves in trouble when Bay Shore stole a pass and found the back of the Mineola net before the five minute mark. Mineola had several fine corner kicks by midfielder Alec Leitman but were unable to find the equalizer. Joe Martins made several difficult saves to keep Mineola in the match but a successful corner kick halfway through the second half sealed the victory. Mineola stands at 1-1 in league play.

 

Mini-Mustangs Shut Down Strikers

The GU15 Mineola Mini-Mustangs improved to 7-0 in their 3-0 win over the talented South Huntington Strikes on April 27. Mineola headed into halftime  with a 1-0 lead thanks to Brianna O’Brien’s scramble in front of the Strikers goal. The goal came after the third consecutive corner kick from Allison Lamonica.  She chipped off a free kick, which landed for teammate Christen Patalano, who tapped home the goal from in close.

 

O’Brien drove across the top of the Strikers penalty area, spinning away from her defender, and driving a one-time shot over the leaping goalkeeper for her team’s third goal. Natalia Cotton and Gretchen Keller held the shutout in goal with a line of Jillian Palma, Brianna Lopes, Meghan Lafaye, Michelle Viola, Valerie Cobos and Annie Cripps.

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
