Despite a disappointing playoff loss against the Wantagh Warriors, Sewanhaka Indians Head Coach George Kasimatis, is pleased with his football team’s season.
“I’m proud of my team,” he said. “But you are never satisfied unless you win the whole thing.”
The Indians faced a big challenge this year, moving up into Conference II left them as the new kids on the block, unfamiliar with the teams they would be going against.
The fifth seeded Sewanhaka Indians traveled to Wantagh to take on the fourth seeded Wantagh Warriors on Friday, Nov. 7 for its opening playoff game.
The Indians opened the game sluggish on offense, and were held in check throughout the first quarter. The Indians defense did its best to keep the team within striking distance, but field position form shaky special teams play, put them in a difficult position.
Warriors running back Dylan Beckwith, was able to punch in a 15-yard touchdown run, to give the Warriors a one score lead after the first quarter.
Sewanhaka Indians Head Football Coach George Kasimatis doesn’t need to look far when he needs someone to anchor his defensive line.
Senior defensive lineman Peter Militano is the line’s captain and Kasimatis said he never has to worry about him when he’s on the field.
Militano has the ability to read the opposing offense and know where he has to be on the field, whether it is getting after the quarterback or preventing a screen pass.
The Sewanhaka Indians did not close out the regular season the way they had hoped.
The Indians traveled to take on a tough Garden City Trojans team on Saturday, Nov. 1, with a chance to seal up home field advantage in the first round of the playoffs. The Indians kept the game close, but ended up falling, 42-8.
The Sewanhaka Indians topped the Herricks Highlanders, 26-6, on Saturday, Oct. 25.

With a 6-1 victory over Yeshiva University (8-7-1, 2-6-1) on Oct. 28, the Farmingdale State men’s soccer team closed out the regular season, improving to 7-11-1, 4-5-1 in Skyline play, thanks in part to Gerard Farrell of Floral Park. Junior midfielder J.T. Famularo (Levittown) opened the scoring for Farmingdale at 7:41 with a header off a cross from sophomore forward Farrell (Floral Park).
Farrell is a 2013 graduate of Floral Park Memorial High School, where he was a two-time All-Conference player. He is the son of Mike and Kate Farrell. Farrell is a liberal arts major at Farmingdale State College.

A warm fall day greeted spectators, students and administrators at Floral Park Memorial High School’s annual homecoming parade and football game on Oct. 18.
The parade kicked off at the school and wound through town with school’s mascot, the Floral Park Knight, and school administrators leading the way, followed by cheerleaders, the kickline team and members of the student classes and the color guard, all stepping in tune with the high school’s marching band. The homecoming court’s Ladies and Lords rode in convertible cars as they waved to the crowd.
It’s tough to make a bigger impact in a Triple-A debut then Keith Couch did. On Sept. 12, he pitched the Pawtucket Red Sox to the league championship by throwing 6.2 innings, allowing only one single hit, in what was his first start in three weeks.
“That game was the most fun I’ve had playing baseball even though it was at a high stage,” said the 24-year-old. He continued, “because of the loose clubhouse and the fact that my dad was able to attend the game. After pitching in that game against current and former big league talent, I know I am ready for the next level,” he said.
