The Glen Cove Junior Lacrosse season continued where they left off for the sixth-grade Knights as they fell to Lynbrook on Sunday, April 10, at the Glen Cove High School with a score of 10–2. Eamon Doyle and Christian Maiorano provided the offense, but there was little help defensively as goaltenders Micah Stone and Victor Scarmato did their best between the pipes. Midfielders Ryan Houghton, Chris Gielbeda and rookie Andrew Glaviano played strong on both sides of the ball. With the hidden talent on this team, we all anticipate a breakout game soon to come.
The fourth-grade team answered the wake-up call from last weekend and realized this year will be a challenge after an undefeated season last year. Playing at a higher level this season, the boys traveled to Half Hollow Hills and faced another tough opponent. They quickly regained their form from last year and battled to the end, showing their confidence and team work throughout the game. But unfortunately at the end, they fell short by the score of 7–6. With nothing to be ashamed of, the boys began looking forward to a tough match up at home against Garden City the next Sunday.
Also on tap this past weekend was the home openers for the junior lacrosse club’s youngest competitors in both the boys and girls divisions. On Saturday, the Lady Knights—a team comprised mostly of second-graders—began their second season with a game against Cold Spring Harbor. And then on Sunday, the boys second-grade division took on Roslyn. Both of these games took place at the Glen Cove High School. (Updates to follow in next week’s paper).
The club is also holding a meeting to discuss upcoming LAXFEST, which will be on April 30, and the scholarship fundraiser coming up on May 14. All interested in helping out and getting involved are welcome.
