    Ice Hockey now recognized Ice Hockey as a "Club Sport"

    Farmingdale School District is announcing its decision to formally recognize and support the local ice hockey team on a district level. 

    Back in March, the Farmingdale Ice Hockey team—which plays under the New York Islanders High School Hockey League—attended the board of education meeting to advocate for ice hockey to be recognized as a varsity sport. However, ice hockey isn’t on the list of sanctioned sports for Section 8 Athletics—as dictated by the state. The granting of a varsity designation goes beyond any district’s control.

    Long Beach Native, Boston Bruins player Charlie McAvoy is the Islanders opponent for the game

    When the Islanders face-off against the Boston Bruins tonight at NYCB live, he won't be the only player to have played for the Marines in the building. The New York Islanders have invited the NYS Champions Long Beach Maries to participate in a tribute to their victory on the video wall at the 2nd intermission. If you're at the game, please stick around to see it. 

    MVP's Vincent Palagiano and AJ Frankaitis shine

    At the Town of Oyster Bay annually hosted classic Saturday night, in front of a packed crowd, the Western Nassau All-Stars saw a late goal by Sewanhaka / Valley Stream player Matthew Bomeisi to jump in front of the TOB All-Stars in a closely fought, highly skilled match. The final score was Western Nassau 3 TOB 2. 

    Bellmore/Merrick's Vincent Palagiano added a goal and was named the West's MVP. Farmingdale netminder AJ Frankaitis stopped many tough shots and went the distance for TOB as it's MVP.  

     

    Long Beach Marines Capture State Crown

    By admin 03/03/2019, 9:45pm EST

    Rally to victory through a sharp defensive game

    With a sharp defensive effort lead by the Tournament MVP sophomore goaltender Kieran Byrne, the Marines stifled a tough Roy-Hart/Barker/Medina team to coast to a 3-1 victory to capture the State crown. 

    Byrne rewarded the coaching staff call by turning in a powerful effort on all but one of Roy-Hart's attempts. Late in the game, while Roy-Hart dominated in an effort to tie up the game, Byrne stayed strong and dominant with some key saves. 

    Declan Conway lead the scoring effort with two tallies and assisted on the Luke Judge put-away goal with 1:25 left in the game to set the stage for the victory. 

    This game closed out a 27 game tournament hosted by Northwell Health Ice Arena and the New York Islanders. We would like to thank everyone associated with the tournament and the 1200+ paid attendees who made this all a success. 

     

    Nassau Teams Continue Strong Showing in Day 2

    By admin 03/02/2019, 11:00pm EST

    Locust Valley and Long Beach remain undefeated

    Long Beach lead by two goals and an assist by Luke Judge and goals by Pete Botwinoff, Daniel Barto and Max Grant defeated a strong Roy-Hart/Barker/Medina club 4-2 in the late contest. Earlier in the day Long Beach defeated ELPS 6-3 to advance the cause. 

    Locust Valley driven by 2 goals from Matt Lipera and a goal and assist from Owen Rowell aced a the East Aroura / Holland team to set up the top seed in their Pool. 

    In Large Schools action, Bellmore / Merrick earned a tie over Lancaster to set up a semi-final game against cross-town rival Oceanside who lost earlier in the day to finish as the second seed with a 2-2 record. 

    Massapequa, Port Washington, and Manhasset were all eliminated yesterday after losses.

    Playoffs resume on Sunday with semi-finals and Championship games to close out the tournament. 

     

    Future is bright for Nassau leaders

    Oceanside Sophomores Anthony Cinetti, Steven Farsky, and Michael Waltuch are at the top of the scoring leaderboards with 23 points between them in two games after an impressive first day showing at the NYS Varsity Tournament. 

    Heading into Saturday, they are facing an undefeated Orchard Park in the day's opener at 8am. The battle between the two teams has a direct impact on Sunday's seeding. 

    In the small schools' division, 10th grader Luca Leighton of Locust Valley / North Shore continues to impress with his speed in a 4 point outburst against cross-town rival Port Washington who LVNS defeated in their only action today. 

    Long Beach 8th grader Giovanni Panicola showed why he belongs at Varsity with his two-goal effort against cross-county opponent Manhasset in a game that Long Beach cruised to a win. 

    Saturday represents cross-over day in the Small Schools/Mixed Division.
