Chiefs Hold Off Harborfields

The 6th Grade Chiefs Lacrosse Team played in the PAL Lacrosse Festival at Farmingdale State University this Sunday, June 9 and beat the Harborfields Tornadoes 7-5, finishing their season with an undefeated record of 9-0. All the boys played and participated in the victory. 

The Chiefs offense got going early as they moved the ball up and down the field against the Tornadoes. The scoring was provided by Chiefs Midfielders Michael O’Connell (4 Goals, 1 Assist), Matt Sluka (1 Goal), Thomas Albig (1 Goal) and Jalen Rivers (1 Goal) who scored his first career goal. The other Chiefs Midfielders Joey Ruscillo (1 Assist), Michael LaGinestra (1 Assist), and Dylan Vincenti fought hard for every ground ball.

Chiefs Attackmen Marc Chiappone (1 Assist), Nicholas Vitanza and Ryan Calderone kept the ball moving in the offensive zone, as Defensemen Joe Tallini, Nick Monteforte, Anthony Giunta and James Reardon suffocated the Harborfields Attackmen in front of the Chiefs Goalie Mike Sinisi. 


News

Five storefronts on Willis Avenue in Williston Park were gutted after a five-alarm fire on Thursday, July 23 at around 2:40 a.m., Williston Park Fire Department officials said. Construction crews could be seen demolishing the row of stores as late as 2 p.m. last Thursday.

 

The fire was under control at around 4:30 a.m. No injuries were reported, officials noted.

 

Williston Park fire units responded at 2:44 a.m. According to department Chief Gary Smithing, the blaze started in the Village Cobbler Shoe Repair Shop at 617 Willis Ave.

The Village of Mineola’s Zoning Board last week approved Winthrop University Hospital’s plan to revamp the “Welcome to Mineola” sign atop the Station Plaza Diner at the Long Island Rail Road Station.

The village code prohibits rooftops signs, but the zoning board has relief powers.

 

“I spoke with the building commissioner and he said that he’s satisfied; that it’s structurally sound and stable,” Zoning Board Chairman John Macedo said. “If he’s satisfied, I’m satisfied.”


Sports

 Students at Charles Water Karate & Fitness, located at 122 Hillside Avenue in Williston Park recently received belt promotions after successfully completing a series of extensive exams.

 

“Our goal at Charles Water Karate & Fitness is to facilitate mental growth enabling our students to reach their highest potential as human beings,” says Charles Water, owner and director of the school.

“Our studio teaches students how to defend themselves responsibly while instilling self-confidence, self-discipline and respect for others.”

Mineola Hurricanes 10U offense was too much for L.I. Saints in 14-5 rout on Thursday July 17, at Willis Avenue Field in Mineola. With 11 runs in the first three innings, The Hurricanes left no doubt about the eventual outcome.

 

An RBI triple by Kevin Pusey, a steal of home by Kevin Pusey, and an RBI single by James Raziano during the first inning and an RBI single by Jack Mackay, a three-run triple by T.J. McManus put runs on the board early.
