Nov. 19-The GU13 Mineola Mini-Mustangs capped their stunning Fall 2011 season with a decisive 5-0 victory over the Wantagh-Seaford Crusaders. The victory gave the division champion Minis their first ever-perfect season. Mineola finished the season at 9-0, outscoring its opponents by an impressive 31-7 margin. In the season finale, Mineola’s superb back line earned 10 offsides calls as they consistently deployed traps against Wantagh’s forwards.
The traps were expertly orchestrated by center back Jillian Palma. Shannon Durham and Cara Kennedy shined as goalkeepers for Mineola, which earned its fifth shutout of the season. Kennedy brilliantly kept the shutout intact, saving a penalty kick (and ensuing rebound shot) awarded Wantagh following a tough foul by Mineola’s talented and physical right-back Valerie Cobos.
On Oct.9, Craig Pinto, executive director of the Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation, attempted to set his second world record within a one year period; once again, he proved to be unstoppable. Last October, Pinto set the Guinness World Record for most American football field goals made in a 12 hour period with 717, while raising money for Celiac Disease research and awareness. This time, he wanted to set the bar a little higher.
Nov.13-The GU13 Mineola Mini-Mustangs improved to 8-0 on the season with a decisive 7-2 victory over the Rockville Centre (RVC) Rave. Six different Mini-Mustangs found the back of the RVC net, leading a balanced attack that moved Mineola within one game of finishing undefeated for the season.
With RVC taking charge in the early going, Mineola’s defense escaped pressure to clear the ball to Christen Patalano, who quickly directed the ball forward to Allison Lamonica ten yards from midfield. Lamonica’s lead pass sent Emma Feimer dashing up the right side, slowing down only to line up a perfect shot past the RVC keeper for the first goal of the game.

Nov. 6-The BU7 Mineola Mavericks traveled to Bellmore to play in a mini-tournament with the FC Bellmore PAL Chelsea and FC Roosevelt United. In the opener Mikie Duda put the Mavericks ahead early but Bellmore tied the score before halftime. The Mavericks scored four goals to break the game wide open in the second half and secure their victory.
After an up and down season the Mineola Varsity Football team finished the regular season in playoff position. The Mustangs started out the season with a 26–6 loss to the now first-place and #1 playoff seed Locust Valley. The Mustangs rebounded from that loss with a victory over Friends Academy and a 28 –7 win over Oyster Bay on Homecoming.
The team had been without the services of returning All County running back Steve Napolitano. Steve suffered a broken ankle over the summer and after rehabilitation played his first game against #2 seed Roosevelt High School. Although Steven was not quite his normal self, his addition to the team would be a big plus. The Mustangs took an 18–6 lead into the fourth quarter but faltered in the end as Roosevelt came away with the victory.
