Lacrosse Bloodlines

Adelphi alum follows in

Hall of Famer’s footsteps

Making it to the Major Lacrosse League is an extraordinary feat, especially if you come from a Division II lacrosse program. But for former Adelphi University standout Joe Vitale, it’s a family tradition.

At age 8, Vitale was handed his first lacrosse stick by his uncle, New York Saints attacker Don Borges. Later, Vitale went on to earn All-American honors at Adelphi, where he graduated in 2012 after leading the team to a National Championship game appearance. This past year, the 23-year-old Lynbrook native earned a paycheck playing for the MLL’s New York Lizards, who play home games at Hofstra University.

Getting Sweet Revenge

Garden City Wings

upset Owls 7-2

Since Garden City’s loss in last year’s semi-final playoffs to Lynbrook, Coach Rich Peck wanted the Wings to emerge victorious against the Owls the next time they were matched up. However, for that game at the Bethpage Sakting Rink, the Garden City team was to be short-benched on players. To overcome this, Coach Rich invited Alex Feinstein, one of his goalies, to play out while Matt Lobasso, the resident goalie on the Wings, closely guarded the net.   

During the first half of period one, both teams found themselves scoreless. Finally, powerhouse Post (#27) broke Lynbrook’s shutout unassisted, with seven minutes left on the clock, followed by (#97) Junior Matt Borges, unassisted, with 4:48 minutes left. The Owls were unable to respond in kind.

Attorney says

“Boxing is

like litigation”

Garden City’s Roseanne “Ro-Hammad Ali” Beovich was taken aback the first time she took a hit when preparing to box for the 10th annual LI Fight for Charity that took place last month at the Hilton in Melville. After training at the Glen Cove Boxing Club three times a week, it became easier for her to put up her dukes and get into the ring to raise money for local charities on Long Island.

Wings shut down and sink Sailors

Knowing they were facing off against a very physical team which had made the States for the last two consecutive years, the Garden City Wings Varsity Ice Hockey teammates discussed strategies in the locker room at the Bethpage Ice Arena. Alex Feinstein’s past netminding experiences for the Sailors would prove valuable to them as he drew upon his insight in how to compete against them effectively. Playing with the Garden City Wings team, together they crushed the Oceanside Sailors 7-2, earning their first Varsity win of the season in Nassau County High School Hockey League. Feinsten faced 30 shots while his teammates unloaded 24 on the opposing goalie.
