Garden City makes big statement
Garden City opened the Conference IV slate with a big statement by knocking off South Side, 4-0, on the road today. Cosmo Veneziale scored two goals, Chris Skorr had one goal and two assists, and Sean Bingham added one goal and one assist. James Pyatsky (4 saves) and Joseph Capetola (two saves).
South Side is the two-time defending Nassau Class A champions and moved up to Conference IV. Garden City caught a bad break by missing the postseason last year. Nassau changed its playoff format last season with the top four teams making the postseason. Garden City placed fifth in a very difficult conference and was certainly a worthy playoff team.
The league will be even more competitive this season with the addition of South Side.
