There was an old-fashioned shootout on Sunday when the fourth-grade boys played against Hewlett, finishing up the game with an 18-18 tie. Leading the scoring for the Vikings was Mark Russo who had eight goals and one assist. Mark was simply unstoppable.
Luke Moran made a great contribution on mid-field with three goals, two assists and seven ground balls. Will Feldmann was involved in the back and forth action with three goals and three assists.
Late in the game, John Pourakis helped North Shore keep pace with Hewlett by adding two goals of his own. Matt O’Donnell had an exciting game and scored his first career goal. Easing back into form following an injury, Matt DiLeo scored one and assisted on another in his first game of the season. William Hunt, who was all over the field playing great defense and grabbing seven ground balls, won the head, heart and hustle award. Twin brothers Milo and Diego Scarpone both played solid defense.
In addition, Danny Quigley and Daniel Vogts both showed strong effort on D. Aaron D’Aversa was able to make three key saves to help secure the tie.
On the ladies side…the fourth-grade girls are on a roll this season and this week was no different. The team was victorious against Floral Park with a final score of 7 to 3. Kate Gilliam and Fiona Reagan were dominate on offense each successfully finding the back of the net with two goals and one assist each. Emilie Pruess and Evie McCreery both had a great game finishing up with one goal and one assist each. Ella Begley added to the lady Vikings team effort by scoring one. Rebekah Lando and Ava Vaccaro controlled the middle of the field with great two-way play and gobbled up several ground balls.
On attack, Nora Schatz, Grace Spotto, Ella Scheffel, Christina Dade and Erin Checca all played exciting lacrosse. A great defensive effort was made by Finley Livingston, who had multiple ground balls and successful clears. Madison Patino, Ashley Brown and Sara Garry all played strong defense throughout the game. Great goal-tending by Charlotte Semlies and Alli Ryder helped to lead the Lady Vikings to another victory.
The North Shore fifth-grade PAL boys team played against Port Washington last Sunday at Lion’s Field. Jack Dempsey, a newcomer to the game, stepped up and played goalie for the first time. Defense did an awesome job clearing the ball up the field with Jack
Alletto leading the defensive line with Lorenzo Recine, Collin Murphy and Deaglan Doyle making key plays to keep the game tight. Goals were scored by Mario Fischetti, Dominic Genzale, Kevin Larkin and Forest Demetri. Young team with a ton of new players. This is a team to watch. Final score: North Shore 4 v. Port Washington 6.
