The spring soccer season is off to a roaring start. Despite cool, drizzly weather on Saturday and cold weather on Sunday all of Port's travel teams were in action with their first spring league games and several hundred kids aged pre-K to 6th grade launched the intramural season in fine style.

This past weekend was the Port Washington Soccer Club's annual food drive as a part of Long Island Junior Soccer League and the Waldbaum's Cup. A hearty thank you to all those who helped and/or donated. Special thank you's go out to Boys U-14 player Jake Paisner and Girls U-14 players Filiz Kipcakli and Angela Matinale. The girls especially were effective in their efforts bringing in over 100 pounds of food for Long Island Cares.

In the action, the Port Warriors (Boys U-12) came into the spring strong. After a disappointing fall season the Warriors faced up against Plainview-Old Bethpage. The game turned into a tough defensive struggle but the Warriors, led by sweeper Dan Otterman, held off several POB rallies to preserve a scoreless tie. The Port vipers (Boys U-12) have also started strong. Two weeks ago they won their opening Waldbaum's Cup game. Last weekend they won their opening league game by a score of 4-1 over Farmingdale. Ignacio del Valle, Mike Boccia, Erik Johnson, and Harry Roberts each scored. The stingy Viper defense was led by fullback Matt O'Dell and halfbacks Will Rizzo and Brent Gillespie.
