Firecats win 2, tie 1 during weekend play

The New Hyde Park Girls U10 Firecats were busy last weekend playing a game on Saturday and a double header on Sunday.

Saturday the girls traveled to Glen Head to take on the North Shore Alliance.

The Firecats came out strong on a beautiful day and defeated the Alliance 5-1, improving their record to 6 wins and 0 defeats.

The girls’ offense was outstanding with stellar performances by Logan Ward, Irene Tsahas, Marian Pappas, Madeline Slaski, Jillian Cooper, Emily Rose, and Paden Dvoor. A strong defense was lead by Lauren Wasserman, Stephanie Zovich, Jasmine Kamdar, Joanna Mauceri and Paulina Valentine. They sit atop their division in the Long Island Junior Soccer League with one game remaining. Next week they take on Manhasset in their final game in an attempt to remain undefeated.

Sunday, the Firecats were in Great River for two games in the JSS League.

The first game was a hard fought battle against the girls from Commack.

Pappas scored the only goal of the game off a perfect pass from Slaski to put the Firecats up 1-0.

Shutout goalkeeping by Joanna Mauceri helped lead the Firecats to victory.

In game two the girls went up against a strong team from East Islip. But as the day grew colder, the girls played harder.

Ward and Pappas put the Firecats up 2-0, but East Islip came back to tie it by half time.

Rose scored the go ahead goal for the Firecats with a blast from the top of the box early in the second half.

East Islip came back once again scoring on a rebound after a save by goalkeeper Jillian Cooper.

After a hard fought game by both sides, the game ended in a 3-3 tie.
