Welcome to Patch's snapshot of sports in Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow.
From soccer dad Michale Weitzen:
The Tarrytown under 10 girls AYSO travel team defeated the Croton tigers 4-1 on Saturday at Croton Landing field. In the opening minutes of the game, Julia Costa set the tone with two quick strikes from the midfield position; however, for only the second game this year, the Mustangs allowed a score, keeping the game close into the fourth quarter. Constant offensive pressure by Samantha Livingston, Emma Clarke, Samantha Nutig, and Talia Fante eventually led to Maya Weitzen scoring two goals in the final minutes and putting the game out of reach. The Mustang's defense was fierce as always and was led by Maddy Navin, Annie Dineen, Sadie Swenson, and Catherine Grimes. Stellar goal tending was displayed as usual by Maddy Navin, Catherine Grimes, and Julia Costa. The Tarrytown girls are now 5-1 on the year and look forward to hosting the Ardsley Spirit next Saturday at Losee field. The last time these two teams met they fought to a 2-2 tie. [Arsley game ended up being cancelled; girls had a Tarrytown scrimmage instead.]
And from football father David Halesworth, who only just got his power back yesterday so wins lots of extra points for sending us this:
Last week Wolfpack 3rd & 4th White traveled to Armonk to face the undefeated, and unscored upon Armonk Warriors. Both streaks were short lived. Armonk opened up strong with a touchdown drive to open the game, but the door slammed quickly after that as the Wolfpack took over and never looked back. Strong defensive performances were given by Jake Zednik, Noel Gomez and Harrison Halesworth. Halesworth carried the offensive load scoring all 21 of the Wolfpacks points on TDs from 2, 50 and 60 yards, and two extra points for a 21-7 win, and a berth in the Championship Game this weekend, a rematch with Armonk!
Wolfpack 3rd & 4th Black scored a big victory over Ardsley, 26-0. Game information to follow.
Tarrytown Wolfpack 5th & 6th ended their regular season with a big win over the Cortlandt Cowboys, 39-36. The Wolfpack scored on their first possession and never stopped. Jack Stroligo scored on a 40 yard run, Terence Williams scored on a 25 yard fumble recovery, and also a 30 yard run. Colby Martins scored on a 20 yard run, Michael Ciffone scored on a 5 yard run and Danny Adair scored on a 40 yard run. Danny Minerva caught two extra point conversion passes from Colby Martins. The Wolfpack earned the #2 seed in the playoffs, and will play in the Championship this Saturday, November 10th vs. the # 1 seeded White Plains Bernie’s at White Plains Middle School.
In the Wolfpack Flag Red’s final game of the season the young Wolfpack squad scored a commanding victory over the White Plains Bernies, 21-7. The team was once again led by the strong play of Armani Curet, who scored all three of the Wolfpack’s TDs on the day. Curet scored on a QB keeper, an interception return, and a long pass reception across the middle for his final TD of the season. There were some other great performances that are worth noting. Jack Macca, Nico Boccabella, and Matthew Plunkett were very tough on the defensive side of the ball. White Plains scored their only TD on a beautiful pass play. We want to congratulate the Wolfpack Flag Red team on an unbelievable season, and a final record of 5-1-1. This team was young and inexperienced, but the really came together as a team. Wolfpack Flag Red will miss Curet and the rest of our second graders, but the Flag future is bright for the Wolfpack.
