High flying Falcons Tight end Tom McNamara, #88, makes a one handed catch to score a touchdown for the Locust Valley Falcons as they defeated the Roosevelt Rough Riders 19-12 at Hofstra University’s Shuart Stadium on Thursday, October 6th. The Falcons are now undefeated (5-0) in Conference IV. The team will face West Hempstead, also undefeated, in a home game tomorrow, Saturday, October 15th at 2 PM. See Jeff Davis’ column, Out in Right Field, on page 8.

After two years of work, artist Jerelyn Hanrahan of Atelier Studio/Fine Arts in Oyster Bay has finally seen her vision come to life as she installed her interactive public art project, “Graduated Pearls” on Tuesday, October 11th in Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park in Oyster Bay. Each pearl in the 40-foot string represents a favorite place or establishment in the Oyster Bay community — chosen by a public vote. There are 19 pearls in the necklace representing: The Waterfront, Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park, Oyster Bay Marina, Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, Wild Honey Restaurant, Raynham Hall museum, Friends of the Bay, Bonanza Stand, Nino’s Pizza, Buckingham Variety, Nobman’s Hardware, Oyster Bay High School, The Attic Door, Gooseberry Grove, Canterbury’s Oyster Bar & Grill, Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary & Audubon Center, The Life Enrichment Center at Oyster Bay, St. Dominic’s Chapel and The Printery. The pearls ended up at a new location. They were originally supposed to be placed near the concession stand and the playground, they now reside on a patch of grass next to the beach making them look as

I was never happy with the original site,” said Hanrahan. “I was walking on this site and I thought this spot would be so great.” After calling the Town of Oyster Bay a few times, she finally got approval. “Physically this was like my Sistine Chapel. A lot of hours went into this project,” said Hanrahan. “In

a way it feels like my tribute to Oyster Bay because I grew up here and always loved it. I dedicated the piece to my parents, Gloria & Jeremiah Hanrahan, as a thank you for raising me here. My father was an advocate for perseverance. I thought of him a lot during this project.” A fence will temporarily be put up around the pearls during the Oyster Festival for insurance purposes. The piece will remain in TR Park (Continued on page 5)

Record holder gets his kicks for Celiac foundation By David J. Criblez

What could drive a man to kick 1,000 field goals in less than 24 hours? One incentive for Craig Pinto of Mineola was the opportunity to be ensconced in the Guiness Book of World Records, but the record was just a means to an end — calling attention to his Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation. Mr. Pinto, 33, took his self-imposed ordeal to the new turf football field at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park in Oyster Bay on Sunday, October 9th. His record-setting quest began at 7 AM and by 9:30 PM he had reached his goal. Pinto grew up in Jericho and was a kicker on the varsity football team for Jericho High School, graduating in 1996. He also kicked for the

Hofstra football team in 1998 and 1999 before leaving school when he was diagnosed with celiac disease. Celiac is an autoimmune disorder that affects the small intestine, which has difficultly absorbing the proper nutrients, breaking them down and processing them. Pinto was also diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at the age of 12. A strict dietary regimen that includes avoiding anything with gluten (bread, pasta, etc.) has kept him feeling well. “It took some adjusting leaving school and facing a lot of different mental and physical stress,” he said. “It was a big change of diet. But now the world is glutenfree friendly so it’s easier.” In 2009 Pinto returned to football when he was signed to kick for the New Jersey Revolution arena team.

“It was great. We got to travel and play in some really cool arenas up and down the East Coast,” he said. “It put the fun back into the game for me.” Pinto started his foundation “to advocate athletics and celiac disease. A lot of kids and teens may shy away from playing sports or remain inactive because of the change in diet,” he said. “I wanted to do a Guinness Book of World Records event to promote healthy eating and sustainability.” To be recognized as the record holder, Pinto had to kick an equal number of attempts from the left hash, middle and right hash marks, all at 40 yards away. An official referee and a statistician recorded the feat and had the results notarized. Last year, on October 10, (Continued on page 5)

Columbus Day Weekend is also known as “Apple Weekend” in Mill Neck as thousands of people packed the campus of Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf on October 8th & 9th for their annual Fall Harvest Festival. The school had a lot to celebrate with festival marking its 50th year while the school turned 60, Mill Neck Services for Deaf Adults became 25 and Early Childhood Center reached 20 years. “This has been a record year. Saturday was our biggest day ever in the history of the festival. The weather plays a big part. All-in-all it was a great weekend,” said Nancy Leghart, Director of Advancement, who wrote a song, “Get Your Apples,” in promotion for the event. She even put a video of her and her staff singing it on YouTube complete with sign language. People were purchasing apples by the bag and bushel as they chose between Macintosh, Red Delicious, Empire, Gala, Greening, Honey Crisp and Jonagold. Locust Valley Rotarian Liz Hausner, who works at Sunrise Senior Living in Glen Cove, was selling the

“classic apple” and one of the most popular - Red Delicious. “People come to us asking advice for recipes and how best to enjoy the different variety of apples. Most people are annual attendees so it’s like meeting up with friends that we haven’t seen in a year. They really look forward to this event and they are very enthusiastic,” she said. “Apples are very healthy - high fiber, low sodium – perfectly natural.” John P. Hradsky of Yonkers and his family have been working the honey booth for over 40 years. John started working at the booth with his dad when he was 6 years-old. “My job was to put the labels on the honey then I had the rest of the day to run around and play,” he said. The honey booth has since expanded to selling preserves, jams, jellies, butters and various flavors of syrup in addition to pounds of pure raw honey. “This is a family tradition for us. We don’t make any plans for Columbus Day weekend,” he said. “If you have a sweet tooth, come see us. We’ll take care of you. This is definitely not the diet booth.” Andrew Gertler of Sea Cliff was a big draw as he worked in the pumpkin patch carving three-dimen-

sional pumpkins. Gertler is nationally known for his TV show on the Travel Channel called “Sand Masters,” where he and his friends travel around the world building sandcastles. “Carving pumpkins is a bit different than building sandcastles. It’s easier in terms of physicality. I’m not shoveling tons of sand. It’s a more civil way of carving,” Gertler said. “My feeling is the more gruesome the better. I try to make the pumpkins as scary as possible. When kids get scared then I know I’ve done my job.” Mill Neck Manor’s Executive Director Dr. Mark Prowatzke was selling apple tickets with his Executive Assistant Carol Koenig greeting alumni that came back to say hello. “Some of the little ones who left 18 years ago are walking up to me now and they are in their 30s. It’s wild,” he said. “Last year was a record breaking Saturday and this one beat it. All we need is nice clear weather.” As the Fall Harvest Festival drew to a close the 50/50 winner was pulled and it was Dr. Elizabeth Duda of Cocoa Beach, FL, who won the $6,074 prize.

Harvest Regatta Celebration held on South Street By David J. Criblez

The Oyster Bay Main Street Association and Oakcliff Sailing Center held the best party in town on Friday, October 7th as they co-hosted their 2nd annual Harvest Regatta Celebration fundraiser. The event took place in four parts of Oakcliff’s headquarters on South Street – hors d’oeuvres and cocktails featuring artwork on display in the clubhouse, Pick-a-Prize raffle and silent auction in the storefront, a ska band and keg in the courtyard and a rock band and dancing in the sail loft. With beverages donated by Testa Wines, Massican and Mount Gay Rum and décor by Dodds & Eder, a wide variety of food was offered by Coach Grill & Tavern, Christina’s Epicure, DelPozzo, Jack Halyards American Bar & Grill, Luce Ristorante, Saggio Pizzeria and Sweet Tomato. The hit of the party of Jack Halyards’ Executive Chef Dave Glatzerman’s egg rolls stuffed with short ribs and his bacon wrapped dates with gorgonzola cheese. Global Guides were offered to all guests, compliments of sponsor Engel & Völkers. The paintings on the wall featured the work of artists Besty Lawrence, Kirk Larsen, Sue DiSanti and Ann Adrienna Null. One of the most striking pieces was an oil painting by Larsen called “Into the Light II.” The scene puts you in the middle of a fleet race on Oyster Bay Harbor in early April. The swaying of the water, the unique lighting and perspective of the piece makes Larsen’s painting instantly likable. “I took several photos and combined it for the best composition. I was looking to recreate the feel of being on the water sailing,” said Larsen, who often races as Crew Chief on Caper with Hunt Lawrence. The Oakcliff Sailing Cen-

ter, founded by Betsy & Hunt Lawrence of Centre Island, is a non-profit organization that focuses on enhancing the level sailors and sailing in the United States. “We do not teach people how to sail but we certainly introduce them and navigate them through,” said Executive Director Dawn Riley. “This season we had 2 1/2 times the amount of sailing than we did last year. We are open to everybody and we do our very best to make sure everybody gets good value out of every minute they spend here.” The Oyster Bay 2011 Fall Classic was held on Saturday, October 8th in Oyster Bay Harbor featuring two races: a Classics Race for serious sailors plus the Harvest Fest Fun Race with the Swedish Match 40s. The course consisted of two laps to Seawanhaka Corithian Yacht Club to the Casson lighthouse by Cove Neck to a green buoy in the Sound. Caper, helmed by Hunt Lawrence, was the winner of the Oyster Bay 2011 Fall Classic and the Overall Series Winner of the Sonnet Trophy. Anne Caie, helmed by Roxy Darling, was the winner of September Series and Dolphin, helmed by Mike Smith, was the winner of October Series. Dawn Riley won the Harvest Fest Fun Race. Mike “Koko” Komar took Second Place and Jacon Mayer and his crew came in Third Place. “We’ve recognized from the very beginning that Oakcliff Sailing is one of the single greatest things to happen to Oyster Bay since Theodore Roosevelt. Partnering with them was a nobrainer for us,” said Isaac Kremer, Executive Director of the Oyster Bay Main Street Association. “You’ve got the best of land & sea with the work we are doing in the downtown and what they are doing to make the water a destination.”

Caper, helmed by Hunt Lawrence, was the winner of the Oyster Bay 2011 Fall Classic and the Overall Series Winner of the Sonnet Trophy.

OPINION EDITORIAL Local elections are all about you


t’s just over three weeks until Election Day, Nov. 8.It’s understandable that many voters already feel saturated with politics, with the media constantly bombarding us with the political drama of President Obama’s re-election campaign, the back-and-forth among the Republican candidates, the polls showing voter apathy and animosity toward Congress, and assorted alleged scandals. And that’s for an election 13 months from now. So it’s easy to dismiss our local races as not as important as the national campaigns, or to feel so inundated with politics that we’re simply sick of the subject. But that would be a mistake. The decisions made by the people who sit in the 19 chairs in the County Legislature have significant effects on every Nassau resident and business. They consider and approve budgets that determine taxes and spending priorities, the size of the public work force and increases or reductions in services. These legislators pass or reject public contracts and the borrowing of billions of dollars. They render final decisions on issues ranging from police staffing to commercial development. In preparing to vote, ask yourself

Along with school boards, county and town elected officials have more to do with your local taxes, services and quality of life than anyone else. if your legislator is working in your best interests. Where does he or she stand on issues that are important to you and your neighbors? How did he or she vote on putting up the bond to fund the development at the county Hub that was ultimately rejected by voters in August? Have you ever seen your legislator in non-election years? If you are opposed to any new taxes, does he or she agree with you? If your priority is improved services, does your legislator share it? The Legislature decides on local redistricting. The Republican Party, which currently has an 11-to-8 majority, tried to establish new districts that the Democrats opposed. Did your legislator agree with your own thinking

on redistricting? The town supervisor and Town Council rule on zoning and building codes, variances, traffic regulations, taxes and expenditures, community services, parks, sanitation in many areas and development projects. Ask yourself the same kinds of questions about town officials. Do you like the jobs the supervisor, town clerk and receiver of taxes are doing? Have the incumbents served you well, or are the challengers more in line with your priorities? Which candidates share your positions on matters you think are most important? Along with school boards, county and town elected officials have more to do with your local taxes, services and quality of life than anyone else. Even the president doesn’t affect your day-to-day living as much as local public servants do. So it’s crucial that you know the answers to these questions. The Oyster Bay Guardian is one of the best places to find them. On Nov. 8, you have an opportunity to determine who will make quality-oflife and fiduciary decisions on your behalf. These local elections aren’t really about the candidates. They are about you: your taxes, your services, your neighborhood — and your future.

At 130 feet and 268 net tons, she is among the most powerful fireboats ever in service. Alongside FDNY fireboats Firefighter and John D. McKean, the

John J. Harvey pumped water at the site World Trade Center for 80 hours on September 11, 2001. Commissioned in February 1967, the Cutter Bollard currently operates throughout Long Island Sound and north to Narragansett Bay. 65’ in length it is able to break up ice up to 12” thick when waterways freeze and become impassable for maritime commerce in the winter. She also assists in servicing and positioning navigation aids including buoys, beacons, range lights and lighthouses throughout the Sound and its rivers. Sails will be offered on the Christeen, the oldest oyster sloop in America and a National Historic Landmark. She was built in 1883 for Captain William Smith in Glenwood Landing to harvest oysters in Oyster Bay and Cold Spring Harbor.

OYSTER CONTESTS The Oyster Shucking & Eating Contests, sponsored by Frank M. Flower & Sons and Newton Shows, will be held on Saturday, October 15th at 2 PM on the West End Avenue stage. Dave Relyea of Frank M. Flower & Sons will serve as the judge for both contests and Q104.3’s morning disc jockey Jim Kerr will be the announcer. The Oyster Festival shucking record is held by Rodney Dow, who beat Andy Schuller in a shuck-off in 1985. Both men shucked 57

oysters in 4 minutes then Dow shucked another 22 oysters in 2 minutes for the win. Shuckers have 4 minutes to shuck as many oysters as they can. Last year, long-time champion David Mahnken of Melville was defeated by Ralph Alarcon of Lynbrook, who has been chasing the title for the past five years coming in second. Alarcon shucked 37 oysters over Mahnken’s 33 oysters. The Oyster Festival oyster eating record is held by David Leonard who ate 480 oysters in 2 minutes and 5 seconds in 1998. The world record is held by Tommy “Muskrat” Greene of Annapolis, MD chugging 288 oysters on 1 minute and 24 seconds in 1985. Last year Shawn Leonard of Cold Spring Harbor won for the third year in a row eating 144 oysters. He is the first cousin of alltime eating champ David Leonard.

Artist proudly He gets his kicks for a cause places pearls (Continued from page 1) until November 1st but Hanrahan hopes the Town will want to keep it as a landmark. “I can see people saying, ‘Meet me at the pearls!’ ” said Hanrahan. The pearls are immovable and are completely waterproof. “They are strong and can go season-to-season,” said Hanrahan. “It’s a low maintenance piece. No water can get inside them.” Helping her put the pearls project together was John Lancia of JAL Construction of Farmingdale and Peter Lizza & crew of Lizza Materials. Even Doug Smith of Smith Jewelers came down to help Hanrahan make the necklace look

authentic with the connecting rope. They all donated their time and talents probono. “Everyone has their skills and they were all very reliable. I couldn’t have done it without their help,” said Hanrahan. “The whole town got involved. It became a real community project.” Lancia, who rebuilt the Octagon Hotel, said he was on board as soon as Ellen Roché from Oyster Bay Main Street Association introduced him to Hanrahan. “There’s never enough culture in the world. Everybody wants to experience new things,” he said. “This piece of art in the park is a treat for all of us.”

(Continued from page 1) Pinto entered the record books by kicking 717 field goals at the Bethpage High School football field. The Guinness Book of World Records certified that it was the most field goals within a 12-hour period. Because of a scheduling conflict at Bethpage, Pinto ended up in Oyster Bay. “It was great to christen the new field with an event like this,” he said. Pinto exercised and did a lot of stretching and physical therapy to keep strong around his joints in preparation for his challenge. Surprisingly, he didn’t

do a lot of kicking. “I know how to kick,” he said. “I was more focused on getting my muscles ready and preparing myself for it mentally again.” While Pinto was kicking last Sunday he listened to Eminem and Incubus in his headphones to help him remain focused and stay in the zone. He chipped away at the goal of 1,000 — 25 kicks at a time. He drank water and Gatorade and ate bananas and nut bars to keep nourished, in addition to popping a few Advil. “I hit the wall at around the 700 mark. It was more

mental than anything else. I got that far so I just pushed through the rest of the way,” said Pinto. “It was really hot too. I kept taking breaks. The heat was burning me out.” After kicking 1,000 field goals with 462 misses, Pinto was overwhelmingly sore. “My legs hurt from my hips down to my feet. I plan to stay off my feet for a while,” he said. “I don’t think there’s any major damage because I can bend my legs but the soreness is beyond belief.” When asked if he would consider doing it again, Pinto said, “This is the last one. I think this is the end of my

rope. My legs have taken a severe pounding.” In addition to his work with Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation, Pinto coaches football at Jericho Middle School and has developed a gluten-free food product Freebar — an allergy-free nutrition bar for kids as well as protein & energy bars for adults. The products are set to launch in November. Today the foundation is raising money for a scholarship fund.

Runners, walkers and wheelchair athletes of all ages and levels of ability are invited to join in the fun on Saturday, October 15th and accept the challenge of the Oyster Bay Town Supervisor’s 5 Kilometer Run prior to the start of the 28th annual Oyster Festival. The run will once again start on South Street (the main north/ south road in Oyster Bay) in the heart of downtown Oyster Bay, head up Berry Hill Road, turn down Sandy Hill Road, on East Main Street and finishing in the Townsend Square municipal parking lot on Church Street. This is the fifth year that the run will be utilizing a unique course that will show you the scenic beauties of Oyster Bay at their best! The Oyster Bay Town Supervisor’s 5 Kilometer Run has been an increasingly successful fixture on the Long Island running calendar for a quarter of a century, and in recent years has developed into perhaps the single most competitive 5 Kilometer road race on Long Island. The 2010 edition of the run was won by 27 year-old Massapequa speedster Chris Mammone in 15 minutes, 21 seconds. It was the second year in a row that Mammone, who runs competitively for the Bellmore Striders Racing Team, has won the Town Supervisor’s Run and he holds the course and race record of 14:43, which he set in 2009. Leonora Petrina, 28, of the Sayville Running Company team was the 2010 women’s winner, setting a women’s course and race record of 17:14. Both Mammone and Petrina are expected to be in the crowd of 700 runners on the starting line this Saturday. The starting horn will go off at exactly 9 AM Saturday morning. The run will be conducted once again under the auspices of the Town of Oyster Bay and its Department of Parks and Recreation, with race management handled by the Greater Long Island Running Club. Timing and scoring

with be handled by John Snitko of JMS Racing services, utilizing the newest technology with the timing chips built right into the bib numbers. Nassau County law firm of Sahn Ward Coschignano & Baker, PLLC is once again the Presenting Sponsor of the event and word has it that Town of Oyster Bay Councilman Chris Coschignano, who is also a partner in that firm, will be running in the event. Also sponsoring the event is Farmingdale running/multi-sport specialty store The Runner’s Edge and its proprietor Bob Cook. Bib number and sweatshirt pickup will be in the Community Center in Townsend Square Parking Lot just off East Main Street in Oyster Bay from 7:15 AM to 8:45 AM on October 15th with overflow parking available in the parking lot of Oyster Bay-East Norwich High School. The run will once again be part of the USA Track & Field-Long Island’s Grand Prix of Long Island Road Races, a Grand Prix team event and the USATF-LI 5 Kilometer Championship for 2011, with refreshments, raffles and awards five deep in five year age groups through 80 plus, and awards to the top Athena/Clydesdale runners and racewalkers. There will also be special awards to the oldest and youngest finishers who are residents of the Town of Oyster Bay. The top male and female finishers will receive a cash prize of $250 each, the 2nd place male and female finishers will receive a cash prize of $150 each and the 3rd place male and female finishers will receive a cash prize of $100 each, courtesy of The Runner’s Edge.

Tedeschi & Trucks join forces at Tilles By David J. Criblez

Guitarist Derek Trucks and singer Susan Tedeschi had successful solo careers as a married couple. However, they decided to put it all on the line by dissolving their individual bands and forming a new one. The Tedeschi Trucks Band released their debut album, Revelator, this year to high critical praise and the 11-member unit is selling out venues across the country. Tonight, Friday, October 14th, they bring their show to Long Island University’s Tilles Center on C.W. Post campus in Brookville at 8 PM. “This is something we’ve always wanted to do in the back of our minds but this is the first opportunity we’ve had. This a dream band for us,” said Tedeschi. “It was hard at first but we were ready for a change. I’ve been waiting to play with Derek for a long time. He’s a natural leader. He communicates well with everyone and brings the best out in everybody.” Leaving their solo careers behind for a new venture was quite risky on both parts but they felt it was worth taking the chance. “We know we are going to

lose money for the first couple of years but we feel it’s important to get real music out there and show people how unique and special this group is,” said Tedeschi. “There are so many bands that might sound great but they use laptops and samples. There’s not a lot of organic music these days. We want to bring back that sense of the beginning of a great band like when the Allman Brothers formed in the late ‘60s. We’ve already had such great feedback that I think it’s going to pay off in the long run.” In addition to Tedeschi & Trucks the band consists of singers Mike Mattison and Mark Rivers, bassist Oteil Burbridge, keyboardist/flutist Kofi Burbridge, drummers J. J. Johnson and Tyler Greenwell, plus trumpeter Maurice Brown, tenor saxophonist Kebbi Williams, and trombonist Saunders Sermons. The band’s sound is a blend of blues, funk, rock, gospel, jazz and world music. “It took us a year to find all the right players and mix the right chemistry of musicians. When stuff does happen, it’s magic,” said Tedeschi. “We really lucked out and hit a home run with this band. We really want

to give people their money’s worth. Our shows are a lot of fun. You never get bored. There’s something for everybody.” When asked what attracted her to Trucks, Tedeschi stated, “He’s sweet, down-to-earth and has a great record collection. We hit it off right away. He’s very intelligent, kind and soft spoken. I’m more the loud, crazy, outgoing one. He’s a beautiful person on top of being and an amazing guitar player.” Last year the couple competed with each other when they were both nominated for a Grammy in the category of “Best Contemporary Blues Album” for their 2009 solo albums, Tedeschi’s Back To The River and Trucks’ Already Free. Needless to say Trucks won. “It was a little weird but not really. I was thrilled for him because it was his first nomination and he produced the record as well. He deserved it,” said Tedeschi who has been nominated six times and never won. “But I performed on that record so I was a part of it. I was honored to be nominated plus I’m used to losing.” For tickets, visit: www. or call 1-800-745-3000.

Before a capacity evening crowd at Memorial Field, the Oyster Bay Baymen football squad defeated the North Shore Vikings 29-28. The crowd was left breathless as the tough Baymen gained this victory and saw their record move to 2-3. The Vikings jumped out to a 7-0 lead but the Baymen immediately answered with a first quarter touchdown of their own. Ki’Jana WalkerMichel, the versatile halfback, went around end from the 16-yard line for the score. The key block that freed the speedy Walker-Michel was made by linemen Dylan Rankin. The quarter ended with the score tied at 7 each. North Shore again jumped out in front with a quick score for a 14-7 lead and again the Baymen countered with a touchdown. Robin Morgan an athletic speedster jaunted around end behind blocks from fullback Phil Mihlstin and fellow halfback WalkerMichel. Josh Ramos added his second PAT and the half ended 14-14. The Oyster Bay faithful were into the game and the crowds cheering added to the excitement. The second half got underway and this time the Baymen would score first as quarterback Steve O’Neill would drop back and hit Matt Romeo for a 10 yard touchdown pass. Romeo went to the outside and the throw was perfectly placed so that the wide receiver would be the only one able to catch it. Head coach Joe Knoll now chose to go for the 2-point conversion. Again the ball was handed off to Robert Morgan who behind a big Baymen line push went in for 2 putting the Baymen up 22-14. As the game rolled into the fourth quarter it seemed that the Baymen lead might hold up. But the Vikings weren’t ready to put down their swords and scored a touchdown and 2-point conversion. The game at the end of four quarter was tied at 22-

22 and headed into overtime. Oyster Bay had the ball first and Robert Morgan scored from the five on an exceptional inside move and cut back. Alex Galizia’s great block from the line and again Walker-Michel led the play with a great block. The score was 28-22. Knoll elected to kick the PAT and the unerring toe of Josh Ramos put it through the uprights for a 29-22 over time lead. It now was North Shore’s turn to have the ball and they scored making it 29-28. The Vikings could go for 2 and win or try the PAT and tie. They elected to go for the kick and the furious rush by the Baymen caused it to go wide and the hard fought victory was Oyster Bay’s. Head coach Joe Knoll had lots of praise for his never give up team. This week the Baymen will travel to Clarke High School to play the Clarke Rams who also have a 2-3 record.

Falcons win again The undefeated Locust Valley Falcons faced off in a war at Hofstra University’s Shuart Stadium against the Roosevelt Rough Riders on Thursday, October 6th. The “Mean Green Birds” with 3 seconds remaining scored and won the game 19-12 to remain undefeated (5-0) in Conference IV play. This week the last of the undefeated teams will square off when the Falcons play against West Hempstead. But this week’s potential excitement can’t possibly compare to the game under the lights against Roosevelt. LV quarterback Joe Jacobi had a game of a lifetime. Blessed with a remarkable and strong arm, and with tall, graceful and smart receivers, he had 14 completions in 22 attempts for 161 yards. Wide receiver Alex Rawa, a sure All County selection, 8 receptions, for 94 yards and a touchdown, Tom Nastasi the split end had 5 receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown and tight end Tom McNamara had one un506352

believable catch for a touchdown and 8 yards. The game showed the discipline of the Conference leading defense who continually managed to stop the Rough Riders whose high scoring offense rarely is held to just 12 points. The kickoff opening the game went to the Falcons who promptly began moving the ball down the field. Their 8-minute drive was stopped and the ball turned over. This time the Rough Riders moved down the field but the Falcons’ defense held up. The game sea-sawed till mid way in the second quarter when Rawa leaped and caught a pass from Jacobi for an 18 yard score. The PAT was blocked but the Falcons were ahead 6-0. Roosevelt broke off a 73 yard run on a broken play and when Roosevelt missed the extra point the game was tied at 6. Now LV began driving again. Chris Appell started banging the vaulted Rough Rider line. Full back Nick West was the quick opener and of course Jacobi’s passing was key. With the ball on the 6-yard line and time running out in the half Jacobi threw a short pass into the end zone and McNamara made an acrobatic one handed grab and LV was up 12-6. Roosevelt answered in the second half with a third quarter score. Again Roosevelt on a broken play had a big gainer for the touchdown. This one was from LV’s 42-yard line. Now the ball changed hands several times and LV had better field position due to Rawa’s long booming punts. The Green found themselves with the ball and began driving. Appell up the middle and then LV had their broken play. Jacobi dropped back and not finding anyone open scrambled for 24-yards. A nifty out pass to Rawa stopped the clock and then with seconds left on the clock came, what will be known in LV football lore as “the pass.” Rawa was doubled teamed and they were flopping their safety to his side so this meant the sure handed Nastasi would have single coverage. Jacobi faded, Nastasi cut and the Falcons were up 18-12 with 3 seconds remaining. The PAT by Matt Vezza was good and the Falcons had a victory, 1912. Amid the excitement all head coach Matt McFarland could say was “amazing.” The LV faithful had no voices or strength left. This week will be the “Battle of the Titans,” but it can’t possibly be more exciting than this game.
