The Fine Fare Supermarket Angels faced off against the Cardinals in a best-of-three Championship Series. The two teams had played twice during the regular season with the Cards winning both and going undefeated.

In the first game Jeremy Hausdorf went the distance for the Angels in their 7-2 win. He allowed three hits while striking out 12 and also helped his own cause with an RBI single.

The offensive was lead by Brian Biscotti who singled, doubled, tripled and walked in four at-bats. Chris Viso added a single and RBI, while Ray Potestio had two singles, four stolen bases and scored twice. Arnab Mitra continued to swing a hot bat with two singles and both Chris Mignoli and Steven Velez singled.

In the second game the Angels fell behind 8-0 after three innings.

Ray Potestio came on to pitch the fourth inning and finished the game on the mound, allowing only one unearned, allowing his team to get back in the game.

The Angels began chipping away at the lead with four in the bottom of the third, one in the fourth and then exploded with nine in the fifth to take a 14-8 lead.

They then held on to win the Pony Division Championship, 2-0.

Mike Costanzo singled and walked, Brian Biscotti walked twice and scored both times, Chris Viso had a double, two singles and three runs scored.

Chris Mignoli doubled and singled, as did Vincent Pistone. Jonathan Kruczowy walked twice and scored and Arnab Mitra had another single and scored twice.

Uncle Louie G’s Mets fall short

The Uncle Louie G’s Mets girls softball team finished the regular season with a record of 7-3-1 and in a tie for second place with Mineola 1.

In the first round of the playoffs the girls faced Mineola 1 one more time. Kaitlyn Biscotti went to the mound for the Mets and struggled early with her control but settled down and allowed five runs over three innings while striking out eight.

In its half of the first inning the Mets plated five runs on walks to Gabby Valdes, Nadine Choorci, Nicole Gugliemetti and Danielle Shtab. Kaitlyn Biscotti, Gabby Prusak, Lisa Diriggo and Marleny Santana all singled in the inning.

Ashley Tolento took the mound in the fourth inning with a three-run lead and slammed the door on Mineola with three shutout innings, while striking out eight.

She was helped by a great stop and long throw from short by Nicole Gugliemetti to end a Mineola scoring threat. Jessica Rey continued to contribute with three solid innings of defense while being robbed of a single in the third inning.

The Mets then took on Merillon 2, who had badly beaten them during the regular season, for the championship. The girls played a great game but in the end fell a little short.

As was the case for a majority of the season, Ashley Tolento and Kaitlyn Biscotti pitched for the Mets and combined for nine strikeouts.

Offensively Ashley homered and doubled while Kaitlyn tripled. Jessica Rey walked three times and scored twice. Nicole Gugliemetti continued her strong play at short with two assists and also singled in a run.

Gabby Valdes had a single and drove in a run, while Meghan Gratzer walked and stole third base. Lisa Diriggo added a single and a walk in her two at bats.

Gregg’s Tire & Auto Royals keep rolling

Gregg’s Tire & Auto Royals and HSBC Red Sox had a great game the other morning

The Royals Bats were alive with home runs by Marcus Choon and Johnny Martini. Michael Hovi, Isaac Peltzer & Devin Gugliemetti each had two doubles.

Michael Epstein, John Gallagher, Zachary Pournazari and Rishi Durjan each reached base every at bat going 3-for-3.

James Sciortino, Jr., Ryan Badalamenti, Neeloy Azad & Christian Mendoza each made beautiful plays in the infield.

But the play of the game was a high pop to Andrew Farella who was playing shortstop, and made the catch and threw the runner on second out when he left to early and got the double play.
