1. Massapequa (13-0-1)
It’s not even really a surprise anymore when I type in here that Massapequa has won two more games this week. As the regular season winds down, Massapequa has scored 76 goals and allowed only two in 14 games. That’s what you call a juggernaut. Rosie DiMartino has at least one point in nine straight games, recording 11 goals and two assists in that span.
2. South Side (12-1-1)
It’s hard to know what to make of South Side. The team has 12 wins, but they’re clearly not the same dominant force when they play Conference I. The 4-0 loss to Massapequa on Sept. 27 and 1-1 tie to Farmingdale on Sept. 29 confirm that much. But on the other hand, they’ve rattled off seven straight wins since then and have put themselves in good position to repeat—at least—as Nassau’s Class A champ.
3. MacArthur (12-0-1)
MacArthur isn’t slowing down and, as we all know by now, Jill Mulholland is one of the key reasons why. She’s tied for second in the county with 27 points and leads Nassau in goals with 21. Two more wins this week for a program that really ran away with Conference II.
4. Mepham (14-1-0)
Safi Ayinde is tied for second in Nassau with 27 points and Jill Picinich is third in the county with 26 points. Picinich is tied for second in Nassau with 19 goals. The team beat Bellmore JFK, Elmont and Carey this week by a combined 17-2 to keep their 13-game win streak going.
5. Plainedge (12-1-1)
Michele Daubman leads Nassau with 31 points and is third in Goals with 17. However, Plainedge was finally dealt a loss this week, losing to South Side (ranked No. 2 here), 3-1, on Oct. 22.
6. Calhoun (12-2-1)
Calhoun ended the ranking week (Wednesday) last we left off with a loss to Mepham. This week the team won three straight games and is fairly comfortably ahead of Bellmore JFK in points in Conference III. Kayla Cappuzzo (26 points) leads the offense.
7. Division (11-2-2)
A close week for Division, which narrowly claims two victories: a 1-0 win over Wantagh on Oct. 20 and a 5-4 victory against Roslyn on Oct. 22. Julie Ballantyne has 20 points.
8. Garden City (11-2-2)
When last we left Garden City, they had just tied Division 1-1. No such problems this week. Three wins, three shutouts, and GC is nipping at Division’s heels in Conference IV as the season comes to a close.
9. Seaford (10-2-1)
A wild week in Conference VII. North Shore, in control for much of the year has lost its last three games (as well as Amanda Johansen for the year with an injury). Island Trees has steadied itself in the standings. Seaford, meanwhile, has surged to the top. Yes, the team lost to Island Trees 2-1 on Oct. 25, but wins over North Shore on Oct. 23 and Clarke on Oct. 26 have taken the team to the top of the standings.
10. Friends Academy (8-2-0)
In its only action of the week, Friends beat Oyster Bay, 6-0, on Oct.23. Krystine Iordanou scored a career-high four goals and added an assist in the win.
