The Farmingdale Hawks completed their 2009 season with two teams, the 10 and 11-year-olds, completing championship seasons at Mitchell Field in Uniondale.

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.

The Farmingdale Dalers took on the Syosset Braves last Saturday night at Hofstra Stadium in the Nassau County Conference 1 semifinals. The Dalers started out losing the coin toss, but receiving the ball first against the wind during the nor’easter storm. If Syosset could use the wind to pin the Dalers deep in their zone and score first, this could be a huge advantage to control the game. But the Dalers had a different game plan.
