Boys Lacrosse Has High Hopes

Written by Tracy Reardon Friday, 21 May 2010 00:00

Heading into the 2010 season, the Mineola varsity boys lacrosse team was looking to be playoff bound. Returning players such as seniors Nick Grimaldi, Bob Port, Billy Gerstner, Mike Escobar and also juniors Nick Fabiano and Spencer Wolf made coaches Mike Perro and Anthony Barone excited for the season to come. Freshman attackman Brian Gaffney showed his talents sooner rather than later in the season and has really proved that he deserves his starting spot on the field. Off to a rocky start, the Mustangs showed some hope in a game against North Shore. Spencer Wolf scored a goal with 1:18 left in the fourth quarter off a pass from Billy Gerstner who had two goals on the day to tie the game for the Mustangs.
