A group of good friends formed a flag football team this past fall, known in the Town of Oyster Bay as the Howitt Cowboys, under the Coaching of Wally Seyfert, and played in Town of Oyster Bay’s Long Island Flag Football League.
They went undefeated the entire fall season, won every playoff game against teams from all over Nassau County and went on to win the Championship Game on Dec. 27 with the score of 13-0, naming them Town of Oyster Bay Long Island Flag Football Champions. Congratulations to all the boys! They had an awesome season!
Former members of the Over The Hill Gang softball league, who played for the Barboy team, held their annual Christmas breakfast on Dec. 12 at Bollinger’s Restaurant in Farmingdale.
While memories may have faded regarding on-the-field exploits, the players’ friendship has endured. Often referred to as the team of the ’80 s, Barboy won six league championships between 1979 and 1986. Although no individual remains active in league play, most still participate in league activities and fund raisers.
With the scent of snow in the air, but fortunately several hours before it hit the ground in the big Dec. 19 snowstorm, several athletes from Farmingdale created a storm of their own with their award-winning performances in the 22nd Annual Carter, DeLuca, Farrell & Schmidt Ho Ho Ho Holiday 5 Kilometer Run through the streets of Bethpage.

The Farmingdale Hawks completed their 2009 season with two teams, the 10’s & 11’s, completing championship seasons at Mitchell Field in Uniondale. The 11-year-old Hawks survived an early scare as the Bellmore Braves jumped out to a 6-0 lead on their first drive after turning the Farmingdale over on downs to start the game. The Hawk defense, not happy about giving up the drive, responded quickly with a lot of pressure as Myles Mills blocked the PAT. As is so often the case, the missed extra point would loom large.
