On Sunday, May 19, the Glen Cove third and fourth graders took to a rainy Connolly School field against a tough Mineola team. The numbers were there for Glen Cove, unfortunately, the goals were not. The “Wee Knights” showed flashes of brilliance throughout the game, but had trouble putting it all together. Lukasz Dubicki jumped in goal to start the game and made several nice saves. Victor Scarmato, Dominic Williams, Nicholas Kodis, Mike Mattern and Nicholas Caparella gave it their all. The offense was generated by midfielders Ryan Houghton, Andrew Epifania, Charlie Benazzi, Ciaran Greene, Jayden Thom and Will Feldmann. On attack Jacob Bruce, Jacen Braja, Christian Maiorana, Joseph Thom and Micah Stone kept busy chasing ground balls, backing up shots on goal and trying their best. Mineola was too skilled at throwing and catching for the Glen Cove defense to keep up.

The Glen Cove Junior Lacrosse Club celebrated their Lacrosse Day on Saturday, May 11. Under cloudy skies and the threat of rain, the seventh and eighth grade ‘Late Knights’ started the day off against Half Hollow Hills and continued to struggle offensively. In the end the lopsided score didn’t reflect the strong effort put in by the Knights. Davey Moore, Russell Perciballi, Anthony Calo and Lucas Salerno each had a goal for Glen Cove. Calo and Salerno, converted defensemen, scored their first career goals on attack. Joey Grella was a force on midfield with two assists. Eric Brown and Perciballi assisted on the other two tallies. Goalie Brendan Whitehead played well but was unable to hold off the Half Hollow attack.

The third and fourth grade ‘Wee Knights’ took a road trip this week and played a determined Lindenhurst team. With a beautiful beach backdrop and on a new turf field, Glen Cove lost a tough one 7 – 3. Goal scorers for Glen Cove were Eammon Doyle with two and Will Feldmann with one. There were several positives to take away from this loss. The first is that the Knights came out from the first whistle and played tough trading goals with Lindenhurst despite playing with a smaller squad then usual due to prior commitments. Secondly, the Knights played solid defense. The players are using their lacrosse sticks to disrupt the other team, which is making the other team put the ball on the ground. Kelly Larkin, Daniel McFadden, Jaden Thom and Dominick Williams did a great job on defense.
