Mineola PAL Update: June 4, 2010

Chiefs Tame Tigers

The Chiefs third grade boys lacrosse team was excellent as they went on the road and shut out the Northport Tigers 5-0 in their own back yard. This brings their undefeated record to 7-0. Chiefs scoring was provided by midfielders Michael O’Connell (2 goals, 1 assist), Jack Duff (2 goals) and Attackmen Marc Chiappone (1 goal).

The Chiefs defense again was ferocious. Defensemen Matt Grimm, Michael Laginestra, Nick Monteforte and Philip Arnold hammered Northport on each and every possession. Goalie Sean Hembach was once again strong in the cage frustrating the Tigers.

The Chiefs offensive moved the ball all over the field against the Tigers at will. Midfielders Darien Lloyd (1asssit), Matt Sluka and Jason Eccher battled and beat the Tigers to groundballs to help maintain possessions. Chiefs attackmen Matty O’Connell, Joey Ruscillo, Liam Gormley and Thomas Albig controlled the ball in the offensive end of the field as they kept the pressure on the Tigers goalie.

All the boys played and participated in the victory.
