On a beautiful Sunday at home, the Chiefs 8-year-olds continued their winning ways and muzzled the Long Beach Bulldogs 26-13 to remain undefeated and bring their winning record to 4-0.
Throughout the Oct. 4 game, the Chiefs offense was able to control the tempo of the game behind fundamentally sound blocking by the offensive line of Michael LaGinestra, Patrick McTiernan, Matty O’Connell, Anthony Giunta, Dylan Vincenti and Spenser Warantz. Powerful running by Chiefs quarterback Michael O’Connell and running backs Matthew Sluka, Lance Costa, Jason Eccher and Jack Duff helped the Chiefs control the ball throughout the game.
The Chiefs defensive line of Aidan Hornberger, Joe Martello, Kevin Parente, Michael Sinisi, Chris Marshiano, Jeremy Samuel and Andrew Cho kept the pressure on Long Beach’s Offense all game long. Linebackers O’Connell and Sluka furiously attacked the Bulldogs and put them down. The Chiefs cornerbacks and safeties – led by Thomas Albig, Andrew Casoria, Ryan Calderone, Matt Grimm and Lance Costa – were aggressive as well.

The 2009, 8-year-olds Chiefs made history. The team has done what no other Chiefs team has done in over 50 plus years of the organization’s existence and that is beat the Massapequa Mustangs on their home turf by a score of 32-26. This victory brings the Chiefs undefeated record for season to 3-0.
The Chiefs, led by Captain Aidan Hornberger, battled the Mustangs back and forth in the pouring rain. On the last play of the game, tied 26-26 with time expiring, quarterback Michael O’Connell ran the ball around the end towards the Chiefs sideline. All the Chiefs fans including the 10-year-old Chiefs who were at the field getting ready for their own, yelled and screamed as O’Connell sprinted 44 yards towards the end zone for the game winning touchdown.
