Soccer Challenge And Youth Festival

 

An exciting matchup of two premier Northeast college soccer teams will take place in the Town of Oyster Bay, Town Councilman Joe Pinto announced. The town will host a

College Soccer Challenge and Youth Soccer Festival on Sunday, August 18, at John J. Burns Town Park in Massapequa, featuring a game between the NCAA men’s soccer forces from Hofstra and Lafayette. The game will begin at 4 p.m.

 

“Soccer fans in our town will not want to miss this festival which will showcase some of the area’s best soccer talent and will make for an entertaining day for the community to watch and enjoy,” Councilman Pinto said. 

 

Hofstra is led by Head Coach Richard Nuttall, who is entering his 25th season as head coach at Hofstra. Prior to joining Hofstra, Nutall was a professional soccer player in England and was also a member of the Long Island Rough Riders. Hofstra will be looking to continue the success of last season, in which the team finished with a record of 11-6-4 and advanced to the Colonial Athletic Association Championship Game.

 

The Leopards from Lafayette, under the direction of head coach Dennis Bohn, are the defending Patriot Division Champions and enter the season with a streak of 12 consecutive winning seasons. They are one of the most successful college soccer programs in the Northeast. This year, the team is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the program’s inception back in 1913.

 

In addition to the outstanding collegiate game, young players will be treated to a Town of Oyster Bay Free Youth Clinic at 2:30 p.m., where kids can practice soccer techniques

and enjoy a barbecue with players and coaches.

 

“Soccer is of the most popular sports on Long Island and the soccer fans in our community, especially the young athletes who play the sport, will definitely enjoy this festival,” Councilman Pinto said.

 

The councilman noted that admission is free for town residents, but all attendees are encouraged to bring cans of food, which will be donated to Island Harvest to benefit the fight against hunger.

This holiday season, Oyster Bay will once again be home to unique, homemade, scrumptious confections from The Chocolate Lady, in the form of a mobile chocolate boutique set up at Buckingham Variety Store on Audrey Avenue. She arrived on Sunday and plans on staying throughout the holidays, and possibly longer.

“I have been developing this concept for the last year and a half and am excited to be coming home to Oyster Bay for this year’s holiday launch,” says Lee Perrotta, aka The Chocolate Lady, who had her shop across the street from Buckingham’s for about five years before she was forced to shut her doors on Christmas Eve in 2012 due to excessive water damage at the rental space.

Long Island Lutheran High School senior Samantha Horton of Oyster Bay signed a National Letter of Intent to attend Siena College and compete on the Girls Division I Lacrosse Team in the goaltender position next year. Samantha will be receiving a full athletic scholarship. Horton is pictured with her family.

On the weekend of Nov. 8, the Oyster Bay High School Boys and Girls Cross Country teams traveled to the State University of New York at Canton just a few miles from the Canadian border to compete in the New York State Cross Country Championships.

Alex Tosi became the first Bayman since Joe Jazwinski and Justin Nakrin (2008) to become All-State, placing 16th with a time of 16:53. Most runners ran about 20 seconds slower than their Bethpage times because of the muddy conditions on the course. Tosi’s time was basically equivalent to his best Bethpage time, as he powered through the toughest parts of the race. He led the Baymen to a seventh place finish in the Class C race, an improvement from their 11th place finish last year, which ties the highest place at the New York State Championships of a Baymen team since 2009.
