Mineola PAL Chiefs Update: May 28, 2010

3rd Grade Boys Victorious Over Northport

The Chiefs 3rd Grade Boys Lacrosse Team was outstanding as they nailed down another victory over a tough Northport Tigers team 9-5 at home at Hampton Field. This brings their undefeated record to 6-0. Chiefs scoring was provided by Midfielders Matt Sluka (2 goals, 1 assist), Michael O’Connell (1 goal, 1 assist), and attackmen Matt Grimm (1 goal) and Jack O’Brien (1 Goal).

The Chiefs offensive worked hard as they moved the ball up and down the field against the Tigers. Midfielders Jack Duff, Darien Lloyd and Jason Eccher fought hard and beat the Mustangs to ground balls to help maintain offensive possessions. Chiefs attackmen Marc Chiappone, Matty O’Connell, Joey Ruscillo, Liam Gormley and Thomas Albig controlled the ball in the offensive end of the field as they kept the heat on the Mustangs goalie.

The Chiefs defense again was tough as nails. Defensemen Dylan Vincenti, Michael Laginestra, Matt Castello, Nick Monteforte and Philip Arnold pounded Northport each and every possession, as Goalie Sean Hembach was once again solid goal frustrating the Tigers. All the boys played and participated in the victory
