In their 2009 season opener, the 8-year-old Chiefs continued their winning ways from last season and beat the Franklin Square Warriors 33-6.
The Chiefs offense, led by quarterback Michael O’Connell (4 for 4 passing), had a fantastic day and were able to move the ball because of the great blocking by the offensive line centered by Michael LaGinestra and anchored by Patrick McTiernan, Matty O’Connell, Anthony Giunta, Philip Arnold, Dylan Vincenti and Spenser Warantz. Key runs and catches by running backs Lance Costa, Matthew Sluka, Thomas Albig, Jason Eccher and Jack Duff helped the Chiefs offense control the ball throughout the game.

Three minutes later, Mini-Mustang Allison Lamonica broke free on the right side and drilled a perfect shot across the field and into the top left corner of the Elmont goal. The two teams headed to the sideline tied at halftime.
