Nassau News: County Top Ten for 10/14

1. Massapequa (9-0-1)
Talk about an active week for Rosie DiMartino. The team’s leading scorer had a goal and an assist in a 5-0 win over Oceanside on Oct. 6, and then scored twice in a 4-1 win over Farmingdale on Oct. 12. Taylor Elliot had three goals and one assist in the span as well. This week is also significant as it’s the first time Massapequa has been scored upon since a season opening 1-1 tie to Northport on Sept. 13, a span of eight scoreless games.

2. MacArthur (8-0-1)
Jill Mulholland keeps her assault on Nassau alive with three goals this week, as MacArthur went 1-0-1, the first blemish on its season record. MacArthur tied Baldwin, 2-2, on Oct. 6, before beating Hicksville, 2-0, on Oct. 12. Mulholland is third in the county with 18 points and tied for first (with Division’s Julie Ballantyne) with 14 goals.

3. South Side (8-1-1)
After a brief bump in the road, South Side is back to its winning ways. South Side beat Lawrence, 9-0, on Oct. 7 and Malverne/East Rockaway, 5-0, on Oct. 13. Alyssa Aydinoglu had four goals and two assists in the span and Jackie Cifarelli added three goals.

4. Mepham (9-1)
Two more wins for Mepham this week, and it’s now eight in a row. After two straight shutouts, the team allowed a goal in a 3-1 win over Long Beach and then shutout Great Neck South, 6-0, on Oct. 12. Safi Ayinde, who is second in Nassau with 19 points, had two goals in the GNS win.

5. Plainedge (8-1-1)
Plainedge went 3-0 this week with a big 6-2 win over Division on Oct. 8 to move it into the top five on this list. Michele Daubman surely doesn’t go unnoticed in all of this. For one thing, she’s leading the county in points with 21. She’s fourth on the entire Island in the category, and is third in Nassau in goals with 12.

6. Division (9-2)
After being topped by Plainedge, 6-2, on Oct. 8, Division shutout Westbury 3-0 on Oct. 12. Julie Ballantyne, tied for third in points in the county with 18 and first in goals with 14, had Division’s only two goals of the game against Plainedge. All she did this week? Five goals and five assists. That will get your team going.

7. North Shore (7-0-1)
Amanda Johansen has 17 total points (fifth in Nassau), to lead a squad that always seems to find a way to close it out. You might not get the massive shutouts of some of the bigger names in Nassau, but there’s no denying that North Shore keeps winning. This week the team beat Mineola, 2-1, on Oct. 7 and Valley Stream North, 3-1, on Oct. 12. Johansen had two goals and two assists overall and Melissa Hart had three goals and an assist.

8. Kellenberg (7-1-1)
Kellenberg drops this week after tying in its only action, a 0-0 scoreless game against St. John the Baptist on Oct. 13. Sarah Wacik had 15 saves for Kellenberg. All eyes will be on the Kellenberg v. St. Anthony’s rematch on Monday.

9. Calhoun (8-1-1)
Kristina Gandolfo led the team with four goals overall in a 6-0 win over Carey on Oct. 6 and a 2-0 blanking of Bellmore JFK on Oct. 12. Taylor Sipos had a goal in each game.

10. Friends Academy (5-2)
The rematch didn’t go quite the way they planned it, as Friends lost 3-1 to Cold Spring Harbor. But Friends hangs on to the last spot in this list as they've shown a propensity to be able to close out games. They turned around and closed out their week on a high note too, beating Locust Valley 6-0 on Oct. 13.

* All records are overall and through Wednesday evening.
