Mineola High’s Lady Mustangs Handed Two Tough Losses

The Lady Mustangs of Mineola lost two heart-breakers, to Seaford and to West Hempstead teams, earlier this month.

Seaford beat Mineola 52 to 44, on Jan. 4, and West Hempstead bested the Lady Mustangs, 51 to 39, on Jan. 8. 

The Lady Mustangs worked hard playing against first place contender Seaford. Mineola had difficulty containing Seaford’s Jessica Rini, a powerhouse, who scored 21 points, mostly on offensive rebounding.  The Lady Mustangs had an offensive drought during the third quarter, only scoring five points vs. Seaford’s 20.  Samantha Venus led all scorers with 24 points, 9 rebounds, sinking seven three point shots.  Julie Falotico added 3 steals and 8 assists.  Sophomore Gaby Jurksas played strong defense blocking 4 shots.

Mineola had another tough opponent, West Hempstead.  Mineola and West Hempstead were tied at 14 going into the second quarter.  Offensive difficulties plagued the Lady Mustangs who scored only two points while West Hempstead scored 17.  The team had to play catch up and tried very hard for a come back with the help of Addie McKeever’s shooting and Samantha Venus’s rebounding, but to no avail.  McKeever had an all time career high with 16 points and Venuse added 12 points and 8 rebounds.

The next home game is Friday, Jan. 18 at 6 p.m. vs. Clarke.

Sports

The Mineola Mustangs ended last year’s playoff run in a 34-6 drubbing from the West Hempstead Rams. Mineola was poised for another post season push in 2014 and it showed last week, with a 15-14 victory over the Rams in homecoming weekend.

 

With a slow start in the first half, Mineola (4-1) put their first points on the board in the second quarter with a field goal by senior Robert Lang.  After a touchdown by the Rams (2-3), they headed into halftime 7-3.

FC Mineola Stumbles Against Hota

Despite two goals from Liam Going, the BU11 Mineola FC squad fell to a relentless and talented Hota Panthers team at Soccer Park in Plainview on Sept. 6.  Hota jumped out to a 4-0 lead before Going connected on his first tally, launching a 30-yard free kick that dropped over the Hota keeper. The Mineola striker’s second goal brought his team to within two goals of their opponent, but Hota scored several more goals in the second half in a strong performance.  Mineola’s Nicholas Buffolino and Luke Sommese gave solid efforts for Mineola in the season-opener for both teams.
