Cyclones Rally Past Williston Park

Following a tough 8-7 loss to Herrick’s the night before, the Mineola Cyclones faced the formidable Lady Patriots of Williston Park on a crisp Sunday April 20 morning. After digging themselves into an early seven-run deficit, the Cyclones clawed their way back to a stunning victory over the Lady Patriots.

 

Extra-base hits from Jenna Cox (triple), Caitlyn Long (double) and Meaghan McCaffrey (who fell a single short of the cycle with a double, triple, and home run) pushed the Cyclones over the top.  McCaffrey’s homer was her third in four games to start the young season.   The 11-10 victory was hard fought, and a real thriller for fans of both teams. Mineola moved to 3-1 on the season with the win.

Mighty Drive By HBC, Draw 
With Busby

 

The BU9 Mineola Mighty enjoyed a 7-0 win over HBC and completed their weekend with a thrilling 1-1 tie against Busby Soccer Academy on April 20.  In the opener, with Andrew Pizzardi and Greg Kenney combining on the shutout in goal, Mineola’s offense dominated possession and opportunities from the opening whistle.

 

Liam Going netted a hat trick, Mattheus Silva delivered his first two career goals, and Jack Flood and Liam Russelman chipped in with a goal apiece to lead the Mighty.  Chris Marotta and James Teadore nearly missed scoring as well, as the talented HBC goalkeeper made several saves.

 

Strong defensive play by Brian Heckelman and Peter Murphy ensured all HBC threats were turned aside.   In the second game, Going’s team-leading 11 goals evened the tight game.  Pizzardi’s solid goalkeeping kept the game tied, but he needed help from Russelman to keep it level.

 

With two minutes remaining Pizzardi challenged a Busby break in front of him, only to have the opposing striker evade his challenge and drive a shot towards the Mineola goal.  Russelman, backing up his keeper, headed the ball off the line and away from danger.  Mineola improved to 3-3-2 on the season.

 

Lynbrook Shuts Down Mineola

The GU14 Mineola Mustangs struggled to find their offense in a tough 2-0 loss to the Lynbrook Synergy on April 20.  Mineola’s solid defensive play, led by Jillian Palma, Brianna Lopes, Valerie Cobos and Annie Cripps, kept the Synergy off the scoreboard in a scoreless first half. 

 

Lynbrook netted two goals minutes apart on direct free kicks from more than 40-feet from the Mineola goal.  The two well-struck tallies proved to be the difference, as scoring opportunities fell short for Mineola’s Allison Lamonica, Katie Russelman, Shannon Durham and Brianna O’Brien.

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.
