The TOPSoccer Program is getting into tiptop shape and the play on the field shows it. The senior contest this week was a nip-and-tuck battle. The blue team found themselves in a hole as Andrea Matteo and Adam Strominger had the first two goals of the game for the green team. Not to be deterred, the red team settled down to business and went to work. Goals by Billy Russo from a corner kick and one more from the ever dependable Stefani Egre knotted the game. Kendall Toomer kept the green attack going all day with his tireless charges. On the other side of the field, Andrea Cellucci was a dynamo as she took on all challengers, big and small, for the red team.
Sportography Cardinals Vs. Gigi’s Pizza Marlins
In what proved to be a perfect spring evening for a baseball game, the mighty Cardinals once again displayed strong pitching, reliable fielding and patience at the plate against an impressive Marlins team at the Merillon Complex. Pitching ace Philip Chang was not only dominant on the mound as he struck out the only 3 batters he faced, he also drove in 2 runs and scored a run while John Napolitano had another solid pitching performance and contributed offensively with his first home run of the season, 4 RBIs and 2 runs scored. Christopher Carbone, solid on the hill with a strikeout, also added to the offense with 2 runs scored and was followed by an impressive performance from first-time pitcher Matthew Rivera who continues to swing a hot bat with a single and his third double of the season. Joseph Dampman also made his Upper Farms pitching debut and contributed two solid innings on the hill with 2 strikeouts while adding to the offense with 2 singles, 2 stolen bases, an RBI and a run scored. Tyler Dauble continues to impress behind the plate at catcher and also drove in a run on a single while Anthony Treadwell drove in 2 runs on his first hit of the season. Defense was also the name of the game as catcher Scott Schanter snatched a dribbler in front of the plate and quickly turned around to tag out the runner trying to score, Matthew Notine cleanly fielded two hard hit ground balls to second base and AJ DeVito snagged a hard line drive hit to shortstop. Spencer Horowitz, Richard Song and Aditya Jindal combined for 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored while each flashed the leather in the field. Go Cardinals!
