Wine Lovers – The store is small but the selection is terrific. Williston Park Wine and Liquor at 609 Willis Avenue belongs to Mariusz and Joanna Keczmer. They have a fine collection of affordable quality wines in every price range as well as scotches, ryes, vodkas, and rums. They have free delivery and specialize in wines and liquors for weddings, communions, engagements and other occasions. Both Keczmers are excellent tennis players. Mariusz likes people and people like him. That is probably whey they have such a good business. Their number is 746-8555.

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.
