The Huskies opened this 2018-2019 campaign on the road at Thorne. The developmental period saw total domination in their first taste of school soccer. Nico Skeete opened the scoring on a broken corner kick by gently floating the ball over Thorne's keeper. Noah Pagan received a Sal Cassano pass & calmly deposited the rock in the side netting to cap the period. Anders Nielson controlled the midfield as the defense held tight, barely allowing Thorne out of their half.
After spotting Thorne a quick goal, your beloved Huskies settled in & took over the other game. Andrew Fanelli took matters into his own hands and put constant pressure on Thorne's back line. Fanelli scored 2 goals to lead his team to victory. Aaron Kalish assisted on the first score & found the back of the net himself for the second tally. Anthony Ruggiero & Evan Arendt each collected an assist in this game. Arendt controlled the midfield all game, often playing a solitary center half. Matt Reczek & Ben Matlick (who may have had an assist himself) patrolled our goal.
Once again, the Huskies dominated play in the developmental period. Andrew Battipaglia received an Aiden Mullarkey pass & calmly depsited it into the back of the net for the only score. Junior Said, Eric Friedman, Jack Segalla, Coonor Signorile, & Jalen Galloway played stellar defense to keep Ocean on their heels.
The beginning of the other game saw your beloved Huskies jump out to an early amazing 3 nil lead. Aaron Kalish found the back of the net twice & Andrew Fanelli scored once. Fanelli & Maddox Cole also had an assist. Unfortunately, Ocean dominated the rest of the game & scored 7 unanswered goals to steal the victory.

Noah Pagan & Sal Cassano each picked up their first career MAMS assist.
After a disappointing first half, your beloved Huskies rallied in the second half to make that half more competitive. Anders Nielson scored his first MAMS goal off a feed from Nico Skeete. This game could be seen as a great opportunity to build character.

The other game was a very close contest, the first half ended 0-0. Thorne collected an errant pass in the back & was the first to capitalize. Then, Aaron Kalish just took over. Kalish scored 3 goals in the second half alone to ice the game. Liam Gardell, Andrew Fanelli, & Andrew Battipaglia each had an assist. Evan Arendt was dominant in the midfield, controlling the game and possessing the ball.

Once again, the Huskies dominated the developmental period. On a corner, Ben Matlick passed to Nico Skeete, who, from a tough angle, knocked the ball in the far corner.
The other game saw 2 pretty evenly matched teams. This would come down to who wanted it most. Luckily, your beloved Huskies have Andrew Fanelli. Fanelli opened the scoring in the first half with a 25 yard rocket. Neptune equalized on a direct kick blast of their own. With about 10 minutes to go, Fanelli was taken down in the box. Calmly, Andrew stepped up & deposited the game winner in the lower right corner. Evan Arendt was a force in the midfield all day. Maddox Cole, Liam Gardell, Owen Marzullo, Anthony Ruggiero, Alex Roarke, & GK Ben Matlick & Matt Reczek shut down a potent Neptune attack.
