The 8-year-old Syosset Braves played their home opener versus the Bellmore Braves last week. This battle of the Braves has been much anticipated as Syosset has been looking to avenge a heartbreaking loss last year.
The home fans would not be disappointed as the Syosset Braves set the tone early. Luca Pipia took Syosset’s opening play 60 yards for the first touchdown of the day. The extra point was added by a pass connection from Braden Sosnik to Alex Siegel.
Not to be outdone, the defense hit the field with Darrin Costa causing a fumble which was recovered by Terrence Johnson III.
The Syosset Braves 9-year-old football team started the season in a 0-2 hole with tough losses to two highly ranked teams. Two weeks ago they went on the road and lost a close one to Seaford by the score of 18-12.
The Braves had the lead in the first half 12-6 with a long pass from quarterback Nicholas Macchia to Luca Cutolo for 60 yards.
Congratulations to locals Doug Berkowitz and John Mulvey of Syosset, Stevie Weinstein of Woodbury and Steve Schloss of Muttontown, each of who earned an award at the 2nd annual UJA-Federation of New York Summer’s Not Done AquaRun. The event, which consisted of an 800-meter swim followed by a 3-mile run, was held at TOBAY Beach in Massapequa on Sunday morning, September 15.
The Syosset Braves 8-year-old football team started their season off last Sunday in high fashion playing a highly touted Farmingdale team. The Braves brought their focus and determination into Farmingdale looking to set a tone for the 2013 season—and that they did.
Braden “Speedy” Sosnik picked up right where he left off last season by taking the opening play 60 yards for the first touchdown of the game. The extra point was added by rookie running back Alex “The Blur” Siegel.
Quarterback Avery Kurtzer would lead the Braves with a balanced attack right back down the field on the Braves second possession. Sosnik would add another touchdown with an extra point added on a reverse end around by Matt Donaldson showing his power and speed to find the endzone.
Congratulations to local athletes Nicholas Chazotte of Jericho and Arthur Koppelman of Syosset, both of whom took home Age Group award plaques from the inaugural Five Mile Run for the Many, a 5 mile running race held on the scenic roads of Halesite and Huntington Bay on Saturday morning, September 7.

After a standout youth soccer career as a keeper in the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL), Dani Braga won a NCAA national championship in 1996, played briefly in the pros and returned to the LIJSL as a top coach for the past decade. Being hired as Jericho High School’s boys varsity coach in 2011, he coached the Jayhawks to two consecutive state championships in his two years at the helm so far.
Dani (pronounced like “Donny”) spent his entire youth soccer career playing with the LIJSL’s Syosset Lions as well as playing with the LIJSL Select Team, Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) Olympic Development Program and Region 1 ODP. He was not the starting goalkeeper at Syosset High School in the early 1990s as his close friend, Sal Fontana, started in goal. But Sal played for the US Youth National Team and, while he was away with the red, white and blue, Dani started for their high school team.
