    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.

    Bellmore / Merrick win JV Championship

    By admin 03/24/2019, 10:00pm EDT

    Bulldogs are sharp in shutout over Massapequa Chiefs

    Two second period goals by  Jacob Wilk lead a 4 goal second period that put Bellmore Merrick ahead to stay in the JV Championship, who defeated the Massapequa Chiefs 5-0 in the contest held tonight at Long Beach Arena. 

    In a match-up between the two teams with the best in-season records, this match-up is widely regarded as a preview to a Varsity rivalry in two years time. 

    After a scoreless first period, the Bulldogs came out of the gate in the second with a quick goal by Sean Hayes at 1:35, followed up 27 seconds later by the first of two from Wilk, who added a power-play tally 3 minutes later. 

    Bellmore-Merrick goalie Michael Sykora was up to the task and turned away all of the Chiefs shots he faced. 

    Anthony Khaimov and Ryan Friedman each had a goal and an assist and Kyle Lavelle had two assists to round out the Bulldogs attack. 

     

    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.

    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.

    Uplifting story of Derek's return for Hockey Day in America

    NBC Sports is celebrating Hockey Day in America with an NHL Sunday tripleheader on NBC and NBCSN, as well as a collection of stories and features which explore hockey’s impact and influence across the U.S.

    Kevin Shattenkirk and Derek

    It was standing room only in the rink, with those in attendance unaware of the surprise that was to be announced in a few moments. Derek Zacchino was lined up on the blue line in full uniform next to his Bethpage High School teammates prepared to take part in the ceremonial puck drop for a benefit game in his honor.

    It had been a trying three months for the junior defenseman and his family. A surprise diagnosis after the first practice of the year changed the entire season. Now here he was inside the Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center holding a secret that only few people there knew.

    Hours before the benefit game Derek learned that partaking in the pre-game puck drop wouldn’t be his only on-ice duties that evening.
