Late Goal Leads Mineola Past Syosset

Brianna O’Brien’s tie-breaking goal with a minute remaining propelled the GU14 Mineola Mustangs to a thrilling 3-2 win over a skillful Syosset team on June 1. With the score knotted at two, Mineola’s Natalia Cotto raced to a loose ball ahead of the Syosset goalkeeper and poked the ball loose to the onrushing O’Brien, who calmly drove the ball into the goal.

 

The score capped a well-played game by both sides.  Mineola jumped out to a 2-0 lead thanks to two fantastic individual efforts by Christen Patalano.

 

The hard-working Mineola midfielder drove through the middle of the Syosset defense, taking separate passes from fullbacks Valerie Cobos and Meghan Lafaye to score twice under pressure from the Sypsset keeper and fullbacks. Syosset rallied to tie the game in the second half and nearly went ahead before Cotto, playing goalkeeper at the time, leaped to push a hard shot over the bar.

Mineola’s Allison Lamonica and Katie Russelman nearly scored for Mineola as well, with a late score by Russelman being disallowed on an offside call.  Brianna Lopes’ terrific defending led the way for Mineola’s back line.

 

Busby And Northport Shut Down Mineola

The BU9 Mineola Mighty got off to a slow start against Busby Soccer Academy on Sunday, June 2, allowing three first half goals.  Mineola slowed Busby with a tough second half effort before falling 5-1.  Liam Russelman provided the lone goal for the Mighty off a beautiful, long run and cross from teammate Liam Going.  Later that day, despite Phil Machietto’s first two goals of the season, Mineola dropped a 4-3 decision on a late goal by Northport.  Strong efforts from Mineola’s Peter Murphy helped Mineola rally from a 3-1 halftime deficit.  Liam Russelman’s 13th goal of the season was Mineola’s other tally.  

 

Cyclones Take Two

After a mid-season break the Mineola Cyclones resumed their winning ways with two impressive wins. In sweltering heat the Cyclones defeated the Lady Volunteers of Manhasset on May 31. Strong pitching by Victoria Vangrembergen and Mikayla Dalton held Manhasset to two runs. Consistent hitting, including a home run by Victoria Venus, a double by Megan Russelman and yet another homer by Meaghan McCaffrey resulted in a double digit victory.

 

Later in the weekend, on Sunday June 1, the Cyclones took on Albertson-Herricks. The Cyclones started strong and Meaghan McCaffrey came in as a reliever and struck out five of six batters in two innings.

 

Victoria Venus, Megan Russelman, McCaffrey and Erin Miller all helped the cause with key extra base hits. Miranda Bradley played tough behind the plate and made a nice put-out at home to save a run. In the end teamwork and dedication by the entire squad propelled the Cyclones to yet another impressive win.

Peter Zuckerman is running as the Democratic Party’s incumbent candidate for 2nd District on the Town of North Hempstead Council. The district encompasses the villages in the Mineola area. 

 

“Nine months ago, I was recommended by Supervisor Judi Bosworth and approved with bipartisan support of the Town Board. This has been a dream job for me,” Zuckerman told the

Mineola American, on explaining why he is running for office. “I had the pleasure of serving the residents of the incorporated Village of East Hills for 11 great years, but this job has given me the opportunity to expand the area I represent and, thus, the opportunity to be of service to a greater number of people.”
