BUS DRIVER CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED SEXUAL ASSAULT, KIDNAPPING

FAIRVIEW – The driver of a jitney bus was charged Thursday, Oct. 28 with kidnapping and criminal sexual contact after attempting to sexually assault a female passenger and holding her captive on his bus. Erick Aroca-Barzola, 27, of Jersey City, was operating a bus for Ride Ex Transportation of North Bergen on the Bergenline/Anderson Avenue route on Monday, Oct. 18 when he picked up a female passenger. He deviated from the route and pulled into a residential area. He parked the bus and attempted to commit a sexual act on the passenger, Fairview

police said. Mr. Aroca-Barzola eventually drove away from the area with the female victim. She tried to exit the bus several times but he would not let her, although he did eventually. She was able to capture video of him on her cell phone, which helped police to identify and apprehend him. Mr. Aroca-Barzola was sent to the Bergen County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail. He was scheduled to appear in Fairview Municipal Court at press time.

OPINION

One way or another — getting a tunnel November 3, 2010

■ By Douglas E. Hall The ARC tunnel is dead. Long live tunnel planners, for we can do better. There are no New Jersey commuters who wanted a rail tunnel that would take them to Macy’s basement. They want a tunnel that would take them to Penn/Moynihan Station and maybe across Manhattan to Grand Central Terminal. But before we get into what the next steps will be to build the best possible tunnel from here (New Jersey) to there (Manhattan) – and there are next steps because we desperately need a tunnel – let’s look at how we got to the current mess of the ARC tunnel plans. First, what was Governor Corzine thinking when he signed on to a plan where the State of New Jersey would pick up all the cost overruns that might total as much as much as $5 billion. The truly rich have a different way of looking at finances. Keep in mind that the ARC tunnel,

Editor’s Take

with a price tag of $8.7 billion, was the largest public construction project in the nation. Yet President Obama has never mentioned it, at least that I’ve heard. No, the president is busy running around the country as a strident partisan wearing us to distraction with never-ending analogies about a car in a ditch, with a gearshift marked “D” for drive (also Democrat) and R for reverse (also Republican) with keys he won’t give to Republicans who if they want to be passengers will have to sit in the back (as in bus?). If I see him mentioning these automobile phrases again on TV, I swear if I can lay my hands on a brick, I’ll throw it at the TV. By contrast the goal of the ARC tunnel was to get commuters out of

their cars and on a train in a step to end congestion and move toward greener transportation. When will this president act presidential? When will he act boldly? He could have boldly claimed the shovelready ARC project, early in his presidency, put his brand on it and made it a centerpiece for his $787 billion stimulus package and the economic recovery of the nation. When Governor Christie first talked of killing the project, President Obama sent U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood to Trenton to talk to Governor Christie. But Mr. LaHood had little to offer. His offers were: Some private participation in the financing to absorb some of the risk to New Jersey in cost overruns. A federal offer to provide New Jersey low-cost loans to finance cost overruns. Some scaling back of the project. Additional federal financing of $378 million. How insulting. Had Governor Christie accepted these terms, he would have invited comparison to the British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain who, after meeting with Adolf Hitler in 1938, declared he had achieved, “Peace in our time,” when in fact World War II was only months

away. Democrat President Obama may be thinking he put Republican Governor Christie on the spot and embarrassed him, but Governor Christie is the winner. By canceling the ARC tunnel, he has burnished him image as a fearless cost cutter and increased the likelihood of becoming a Republican presidential contender in 2012. President Obama has missed a golden opportunity. Had he embraced the ARC tunnel as a symbol of the nation’s economic recovery and provided adequate federal funding for the project, he would have aided every Democratic Representative in the state seeking reelection to Congress. Meanwhile Governor Christie is keeping a step ahead of just about everyone. He’s getting ready to discuss new tunnel plans with Amtrak. Our national passenger railroad service looks at the Hudson River as a bottleneck between New England and New York and the rest of the nation. So Amtrak is very interested in talking to Governor Christie. Amtrak is funded by the federal government. If we can’t get federal funding one way, maybe we can get it another way. As I’ve previously said: It’s about money. It’s about money. It’s about money.

if you made speeches on the floor of the Legislature, or got lots of bills passed, you were doing “good government”. But it wasn’t until I met with Cary Edwards, who at the time was Governor Tom Kean’s chief legal counsel, that I really started to under-

stand how this game worked. Governor Kean had line item vetoed several spending bills from the state budget, and some of those items were mine. When I was called into the governor’s office to meet with Cary Edwards, he couldn’t have been more of a gentleman. He was a class act in

so many ways, but he also made it clear what was and was not acceptable. What I mean is Edwards talked to me about what true “bi-partisan cooperation” was all about. Compromise. Give and take. He also made it clear that the verbal sniping that I was doing Continued on page 5

Cary Edwards

Continued from page 4 against the administration to score cheap political points in the Democratic Party Caucus or in my district back home weren’t particularly helpful in working effectively with the governor of the opposite party. It was in fact Cary Edwards who talked to me—on the merits—about specific Kean policies like the Transportation Trust Fund, which would provide a

OPINION stable source of funding for crumbling roads and bridges in the state. It was Edwards who explained to me the benefits of specific Kean programs on education and the environment, again, on the merits, and the positive impact these policies would have on the people of New Jersey, be they Democrat or Republican. The bottom line was that it was then that I began to understand how effective government really worked, something you don’t see very much these days either in the Statehouse in New Jersey or in the Capital in Wash-

ington. Sadly, Cary Edwards passed away last week, way too young at the age of 66, after battling cancer for several years. In addition to being chief counsel to Governor Tom Kean, he served as the state’s Attorney General, was a member of the Assembly and also ran twice for governor. Sure, Cary Edwards was a Republican, but he wasn’t the kind of Republican you see today. People like Senator Jim DeMint, a hardcore, rightwing ideologue who there is simply no talking to. I’m not convinced Cary Ed-

MOM TO MOM I By Ann Piccirillo

PA R TY TA L E S OF S H E LTE R E D MOM

Once upon a time, Mother was invited to two parties. This made Mother very happy because she couldn’t remember the last time she went to a party where the little people didn’t rule. Nor, could she remember the last time she went to a party where the red stuff in the bottle was Merlot and not Hawaiian Punch. But Mother was scared. Mother wondered out loud in the middle ofA&P what one wore to parties these days. That thought made A have to P, but I digress. While waiting on the endless checkout line Mother perused a copy of In Style magazine. Mother was surprised to discover that bras were still in fashion. Mother couldn’t remember the last time that she actually wore one. Mother stopped wearing them when she couldn’t find a clean one. Mother noticed other mothers had abandoned their foundation so she abandoned hers. Good thing. Mother’s Victoria Secret push-up had pushed-out. Mother’s first party was an intimate dinner with friends at their minimalist Tribeca loft. (By minimalist I mean that they have no children. Mother realized the easiest way to avoid clutter is to avoid having children. And getting married. But that’s for Mother’s fairy tale about couple’s therapy.) Mother decided jeans and a long sweater would be the perfect ensemble for a Manhattan dinner party. The long sweater would both camouflage her enormous ***, and the enormous tear riding up her seat. Clearly “7 for all Mankind” are not for all mankind.At least not for mankind sporting a post-baby body. (And by post-baby I mean10 years.) Mother was greeted at the loft door with a glass of champagne that she finished before reaching the snow white sectional. Mother marveled at the space. Mother marveled at the 52” fingerprint-free screen of the Sony Plasma

HDTV. Mother marveled that the remote control was not duct-taped together. Mother marveled at the spotless white walls and suspected that Mr. Clean’s Magic Eraser never came calling. Mother marveled her way through two bottles of champagne and three bottles of Merlot. Father carried Mother out at 4 am. Mother’s shouts of “I love you” echoed down deserted Franklin Street. Father didn’t wake Mother for the 8:30am soccer game. Father is afraid of grizzly bears. Mother recovered just in time for the next night’s party. This party was for a film screening at a restaurant. Mother didn’t know what to wear to a restaurant. Mother usually wears pajamas to restaurants. (And by restaurants I mean drivethru’s.) Mother purchased a pair of pantyhose, but her big toe shred the nylon. Mother forgot that one needs a pedicure before inviting one’s big toe into pantyhose. Mother had forgotten what a pedicure was. Mother went up to the attic and rummaged through her old work clothes. Mother unfolded a pair ofAnn Taylor slacks. Mother found $20 and the telephone number of a man she can’t remember in the pocket. Mother wanted to call that number, but some things are best kept stored in your pants, especially when you have a big toe with special needs. Mother took two Sudafed tablets because Mother’s head gets stuffy when she drinks. At the party Mother ordered a martini(s). Mother thinks that martinis could end warfare. Mother asked for extra olives. Mother likes the explosion of gin when she bites into an olive she’s swirled around with the anchor of her plastic sword. Mother was introduced to the filmmaker and her husband. Mother’s Sudafed kicked in.

Mucous rushed from the faucet of Mother’s nose just as her hand reached for the extended hand of the young filmmaker. Because martinis reverse the messages Mother’s brain sends to Mother’s body, Mother sniffled out instead of sniffling in. Mother watched a bubble of mucous inflate beneath her nose. Mother saw the filmmaker restrain from recoiling in horror. Mother wondered if the bubble would become airborne or just pop and ruin a perfectly good martini. Mother couldn’t worry about that because Mother had forgotten how to swallow. Four martinis do that to Mother. When Mother tried to apologize for the inflatable balloon of mucous still hanging precariously from her right nostril, drool, not words, came spilling forth from her mouth. Mother doesn’t remember Father escorting her from the party. Nor does Mother remember going to bed with her boots on. Mother slept happily ever…after…several trips to the porcelain god.

wards would have been a fan of this whole Tea Party thing. That’s right, he was a Republican who had his beliefs, but what was set in stone was not ideology or a conviction that he was right on everything but, rather, a desire to accomplish meaningful actions. Cary Edwards didn’t hate government, but rather was always hopeful about what government could accomplish under the right circumstances. Cary Edwards was committed to trying to do the right thing, as opposed to just believing he was always right. He was a moderate, which sometimes seems to be a dirty word in politics these days. It’s why he didn’t win the Republican primary for governor— twice. He wasn’t “conservative” enough. He would have been a great governor. He would have been bold, imaginative, fun to listen to, and someone of tremendous integrity. I can’t tell you how many times early on in my career after I left the legislature in 1986 that I reached out for Cary who gave me advice on so many things. He was always there, whether it was helping me understand who to talk to about a particular subject or where to go in Disney World. That’s right, Disney World. Cary loved talking not just about policy and politics, but family trips to Disney World. He was obsessed. He would go all the time and kept saying to me, “Come on, Steve, what is wrong with you? You haven’t gone to Disney yet?” Finally, when I took my family a couple of years ago, it became clear to me what Cary was talking about. I wish I had gone sooner. I also wish in the last few years while Cary was sick (but fighting as always to get funding and support for the NJ State Commission of Investigation where he served as chairman) that I had reached out to him more. We’ve lost some pretty special people on the New Jersey political scene recently. Not too long ago it was Bob Franks. This week it is Cary Edwards. Both of them just happen to be moderate Republicans, but what they had in common was decency, character and a tremendous love for the state of New Jersey and its people. You are never going to replace Cary Edwards. Ever. And for those who knew him, they know exactly what I’m talking about. He will be missed indeed.

BUSINESS/REAL ESTATE ASK THE ENTREPRENEUR

■ By Will Corrente Over the past several months, I have received numerous requests for advice from readers. Due to these requests and The Bergen News’ desire to best serve the needs of our readers we have decided to incorporate an “Ask the Entrepreneur� component to my column. Recently, I received an email from a reader who has been a professional gambler for the past 30 years. Here is her inquiry: “I have been a Casino Gambler the past 30 years, and am well known in all casinos AC, Mohegan, Las Vegas etc. I decided to give seminars to customers about playing table games and have been in touch with casinos, but since I do not have a resume that shows I worked in a casino they are hesitant to hire me.� – F.K. Dear FK: Three of the most important tasks a new small business entrepreneur must accomplish are: 1) Find customers, 2) Establish legitimacy, and 3) Sell your goods or services. Step 1: Find Customers: In your business model you have 2 customers, the first is the casino who will hire you to offer seminars and the second is the seminar at-

tendee. Treating the casino as your target customer is a very smart plan on your behalf. You have not made the mistake of trying to reach the masses on your own by hosting seminars online, at the library or at a local meeting center. In that model, you would have to expend significant time and effort to reach each potential attendee. In your model, the casino delivers your customers to you great job on step 1! Step 2: Establish Legitimacy: Here is where you are facing your biggest challenge. The casino wants to be convinced that you are the best person to deliver these seminars to their customers. And in order to be the best, you must know the casinos and their industry. They want to know you have experience on the other side of the table. Do you know both the customer perspective and the casino perspective? Here it is up to you show them that you know something about their structure, their business, and most important, their customer from their point of view. Instead of writing a resume, write a sales letter, telling the casino who you are and why you are the best person to host these seminars; what experiences, insights and expertise you pos-

sess that makes you and your seminars better than any others available in the market today. Step 3: Sell, Sell, Sell: Thinking about your product or service from the casino (your customer) point of view tell them how contracting you to host these seminars will either a) make the casino more money, b) keep customers playing, or c) encourage customers return to the casino over and over again.

L E N D I N G A H A N D TO NEIGHBORS IN NEED ■ By Nike Bach of the Leonia Community Chest Leonians helping Leonians – that’s the mission of the Leonia Community Chest – a mission that has remained relevant since 1944. The organizations supported by the Community Chest have changed and the method of fundraising has changed but, for 65 years, the Community Chest continues to assist the young, hungry, emotionally or physically ill and the financially needy. This despite the fact that many, once prevalent, Community Chests no longer exist, subsumed by the larger United Way. Founded nationwide in 1913, business leaders saw the Community Chest as an efficient way to distribute funds, while allowing them to demonstrate interest in their communities. A “red feather” was established as national symbol. In Leonia, the kickoff of “Lights On Night”, as the campaign was called, was initiated with a parade, in early October down Broad Avenue from the Middle School to the center of town. It rivaled the town’s annual Memorial Day parade. Those in the front carried a banner and all wore the red feather in their collar. That night, many Community Chest volunteers rang doorbells to ask for financial contributions from their neigh-

bors. Over time, “Lights On Night” became “Lights on Week”, with volunteers ringing doorbells over a longer period of time. For the past 10 years, the Community Chest switched to a mail campaign, still conducted in early October, as our population became more mobile and more people worked. What hasn’t changed are the real needs served by the Community Chest. This year services provided to Leonians include: (1) emergency food and financial assistance for rent and utility bills, (2) counseling, psychological, psychiatric and addiction services, (3) helping high school teens address issues of morality and ethics, and (4) providing transitional homes for women and children who have suffered domestic violence. This year’s contributions will support the Center for Food Action, Oelhaf House, Southeast Center for Independent Living, Vantage Health System, Volunteer Center of Bergen County, Women’s Rights Information Center, Leonia Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Cub Scouts, Leonia Women’s Club Blood Drive,All Saints Child Care Center, Leonia Youth Group,

cipal of Hoboken High School and at Brookside Elementary School in Westwood. She earned her doctorate from Columbia University in literacy. “The Edgewater Board of Education is excited to have found a person with such administrative and teaching experience as Lorraine Cella,” said Board of Education President Tom Quinton. “We were all greatly impressed with her professional credentials, experience and the personal qualities she projected. The board received over 30 applications. Many of the applicants were highly qualified. It was a hard choice, but one in which we feel very confi-

dent.” Dr. Cella will start in the beginning of 2011, but will be familiarizing herself with the district in the interim. She is aware of the many challenges ahead, including the construction and opening of the new George Washington School, the rapid growth of the district, and the extreme educational and financial pressures facing all New Jersey schools. Dr. Cella said, “I am happy to be a new addition to the Edgewater community. I look forward to working with the Edgewater board, the teachers, parents, students and community to address the new challenges while we continue to provide an outstanding education for all our students.”

My sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girlfriend, Lesley, is a creative and talented cook. Her culinary creations contain unique combinations of ingredients that surprise and delight the palate. I happen to know that Lesleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite snack is freshly popped corn topped with pepper, so when I suggested she join me in my kitchen to transform her peppery popcorn into sweet, savory mini-popcorn balls, she thought it was a great idea.

Lesley used white pepper to avoid dark specks in the popcorn, and added cayenne and chipotle for a hot, smoky bite. The peanut butter/pepper combination was unex-

/PDIFTEF$PMVNCJB $PMPNCJBO6OJRVF$VJTJOF

pectedly addictive, and helped us to create round, sticky popcorn balls. Dark rum, along with a few surprising spices, make this an interesting, grownup snack.

If you have a candy thermometer, go ahead and use it to heat the corn syrup mixture to the perfect temperature. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have one, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sweat it - I recall making popcorn balls successfully with my mother countless times with no thermometer in sight. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to warn innocent guests about the peppery, nutty, adult nature of the popcorn balls. Tel: 201.567.4950 201.567.4940

Preparation: In a medium saucepan, combine corn syrup, sugar, water salt and vinegar. Cook over high heat, stirring constantly, for 6 to 7 minutes until thickened (or until mixture reaches 255° on a candy thermometer). Pour corn syrup mixture over popped corn and stir gently.

15 KIDS COLGATE UNIVERSITY GROUP VISITS LMS November 3, 2010

■ By Robyn Nadel LEONIA – The Leonia Middle School (LMS) Music Department hosted a performance of the Colgate 13 on Friday, Oct. 8. Mrs. Kosmich, LMS teacher of vocal music, introduced the all male 13 member a cappella group to the Grade 6, 7, and 8student body. The group took the floor and sang for over 45 minutes. LMS students had the opportunity to ask the members questions after the performance. The members answered them as best they could and stayed for a few minutes to answer individual questions. Here students discovered that most of the performers were studying different disciplines, not just music. The majors included English Literature, Economics, Computer Science, and Engineering. Student exposure to art and music is an important role schools have in society. The performance was an example of what people can create, musically, with hard work, even without the help of instruments.

Specializing in Advanced Laparoscopy, specifically in Lap-Band, Realize Band, Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass and Sleeve Gastrectomy for weight loss, Dr. Stefanie Vaimakis was amazed at the difference such surgery can make in a person’s life. “Bariatric surgery is a life changing event that must be done with caring, patience and thorough attention to each patient’s needs, not just physically but socially, professionally and emotionally as well,” stated Vaimakis. “Unlike any other form of surgery, it allows me to have a lifelong relationship with my patient. It gives me the opportunity to really make a difference in someone’s life. That’s why I have dedicated myself to this field.”

I developed an interest in higher level laparoscopy through the years while honing these skills. I have had an interest in Bariatric Surgery since the use of minimally invasive techniques has been applied to this surgical procedure in the late 1990's. The use of laparoscopic surgery to the field of bariatric surgery has made an unbelievable difference in the lives of many people in attaining a healthier, happier lifestyle. I find this surgery to be one of the most satisfying to accomplish with its least debilitating and highly successful outcomes. I have been a practicing surgeon in the Bergen County area since 1994. I look forward to continuing to help patients in this endeavor.

■ By Dr. Ohad Barnea

“I AM HAPPY FOR HIM:” THE STORY OF Q.

I have known Mr. D. since 1995. His home was next to my practice. One day, Mr. D’s house-guest parked his car in my office’s parking lot and hit my car by mistake. Mr. D. immediately came over to my practice to “smooth things out,” and I took a liking to him from that moment on. Few years later, he got a puppy – a chocolate lab – and named him Q. He called me up and said: “remember me? You are my dog’s vet from now on”. There was something very special about this man and his dog. The bond between them was unique — a true pleasure to watch – and, Mr. D., graceful and quiet, without words or commands, always had Q, relaxed and composed, following him around my office without a leash. As if listening patiently, Q always sat down while I discussed his condition with his owner. We have been together through many health issues, from Lyme disease to arthritis, to name just a few. The love and care this man showed to his dog was like a father to a son. And it was the same the other way around. Q, looking up to his master with loving eyes, always hiked many trails with his owner despite his arthritis. Several months ago, Q came to my office and appeared lethargic and thin. His weight loss made me particularly concerned. A quick blood test revealed that Q was in kidney failure and that his days were numbered. But Mr. D. and Q decided to fight. They decided not to give in to this debilitating disease. We monitored Q’s blood pressure and kidney values, performed numerous blood tests and urinalysis, battled urinary track infections, and changed his diet to a special kidney diet. We also started a daily fluid therapy at home. We even ignored the textbooks and kept him on a low dose of arthritis medication, contraindicated with kidney disease, so he could hike the trails with his owner in his last few months. Last week it is was time to say goodbye. Mr. D. spent the weekend with Q and on Monday morning we met in order to euthanize Q. As we said goodbye to Q, Mr. D looked at me and said something I will never forget. He said something that reflected the way this gentleman and his dog carried themselves — with style and dignity, with respect and love for each other and, most of all, with zest and respect for life. With tears in his eyes, as I put Q to sleep, Mr. D. said: “I am happy for him.” What a beautiful thing to say, I thought. I never hear the words “happy” during euthanasia. Yet, at such a difficult and sad moment, Mr. D. celebrated Q’s life. He made it easier for his dog to pass peacefully. He was so graceful, until the end. Dr. Ohad Barnea is a 1992 graduate of Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine and the owner of Tenafly Veterinary Center and Cliffside Animal Hospital.

FORT LEE WINS COLUMBUS WEEKEND TOURNAMENT ■ By John Marin FORT LEE – Since the Northern Counties Soccer Association (NCSA) took the Columbus Day weekend off, several of the Fort Lee Soccer League’s travel teams participated in tournaments. The Under 10 Boys travel team captured the annual Pemberton N.J. Columbus Weekend Tournament by winning all three of their matches. In the first match, Fort Lee shutout the Bordentown Blitz 6-0. In the fifth minute, Matthew Epstein made a cross to Ho Yong Lee and minutes later Myungsoo Bang found Erik Holzapfel to make it an early 2-0 lead. After Devan Yee’s back-to-back goals, one assisted by Sanghoon Park, William Kim struck after a nice pass from Daniel Melamud. For

the final goal, Yu Yamamoto found Mathew Epstein. Goalie Troy Jersey had the shutout, behind a strong defensive line led by Arsham Saifnoorian and Taisei Hashi. In their second, match Fort Lee edged the Rancocas Valley Blaze 2-0 on goals by Holzapfel and Kim. In their final match, the Under 10’s battled the Beachwood Pirates to a 1-1 draw.After Beachwood scored the opening goal, Park fed Epstein who slipped his shot past the keeper for a hard earned point to give Fort Lee the holiday tournament title. The Under 12 Boys ‘A’ travel team competed in the Parsippany Pride Columbus Weekend tournament and finished with a 2-1 record, finishing in second place in their division in their bracket. Fort Lee lost their first

match to eventual tournament winner East Brunswick 3-2, despite a 2-1-halftime lead on two Peter Kim goals. In the second match, Fort Lee defeated North Hunterdon 5-2, led by 2 Kai Otomo goals and Hassan Awad’s 25yard free kick. In their final match, Fort Lee defeated Wayne 4-1 as Keefe Ku and Chris Korkis tallied. Defender Nick Danciu assisted on two of the goals on the weekend with fine defensive play from Sam Keller and Jacob Im. Dwight Kim provided the Under 12’s with valuable minutes off the bench, helping to create several scoring opportunities. In NCSA action on Saturday, Oct. 16, the Under 12 Boys rebounded from heartbreaking back-to-back one goal loses to shutout the Wyckoff Torpedoes 4-0 to even their record to 2-2. Fort Lee took a 1-0 halftime lead when Kai Otomo took a low shot that beat the keeper. In the second half, Fort Lee scored three goals in the opening 10 minutes as Otomo added back-to-back goals for a hat trick. On the final goal, Hassan Awad’s crossfound Peter Kim in front of the goal area as Awad notched his third assist of the night. The defense was again the team’s strongpoint with Danciu, Sam Keller, Ethan Keller and Jacob Kim preventing a major scoring opportunity and goalkeeper Mohamed Abdelhamid recording the shutout. In an NCSA game prior to the Columbus Day weekend, the Under 9 Girls settled for 22 draw against RYSA (Ramapo Youth Soccer Assoc), remaining undefeated. In the twentysecond minute midfielder Angelique Corales

scored, receiving a pass from defender Joanna Hablitscheck. Soon after, Sophia Kern dribbled past three defenders and placed a high shot into the lower right corner of the net. RYSA scored on a penalty kick to make it a 21 game just before halftime. Fort Lee had a chance to score an insurance goal, but hit the post. RYSA took advantage of a defensive error and scored to tie the match. Soad Elhomsi, who led Fort Lee’s midfield attack, attempted a free kick in the waning seconds but her shot hit the defensive wall as the game ended at 2-2. On Sunday, Oct 17, the Under 9 Girls suffered their first loss of the season, falling to the Wyckoff Torpedoes 1-0. The Torpedoes capitalized on an errant goal kick just before halftime to win the match. The team is leading the league in goals against, letting up only 4 goals in 5 matches behind the play of defenders Gemma Hong and goalie Jackie Karceski. The Under 14 Girls handed previously unbeaten Glen Ridge their first defeat of the season with a 3-2 win. Glen Ridge struck first scoring a goal in the seventh minute. Haruhi Noaki answered back, converting a penalty kick to tie the match at 1-1. In the second half, Fort Lee took the lead on a pass from Sophia Fuentes to Haruhi Naoki. Glen Ridge tied it again on a header off a corner kick, however, Nicole Florez scored the game-winning goal on a breakaway. Nasuka Mizuma, Taylor Selmon, Amanda Marlowe, Delilah Corales and Michelle Song led Fort Lee’s defense. Kiana Yee and Zoe Cockinos split time in goal.

North Bergen Athletic Director, Jerry Maietta, said this was a big game for the Bruins and the win was important because the team needs the support of the crowd for home field advantage. “To say football in North Bergen is big would be an understatement,” he said. “In the school’s history they have only missed one state tournament.” Also, the Home Coming ceremony which took place at half-time crowned Kelita Espinal and Andrew Perez King and Queen. They will represent the crown at this year’s Project Graduation.
