Northport 5/6 Year Old Black Tigers
Lindenhurst 35, Northport 21
The 1st away game began with Northport on defense, Lindenhurst opened with a few outside runs but good pursuit and tackling Ethan Roman and Jared Schaeffer held the bulldogs back.  Lindenhurst continued to run the sidelines and despite good tackles by Ethan Roman and John Muzyka, they scored their 1st touchdown. Northport's defensive line prevented anything from coming up the middle. Teagan Finnegan, Bryson Brunert, Jackson McDonnell and Max Dubinsky were successful in utilizing their coaches tap and go maneuvers, breaking up several attempts by Lindenhurst to make a gain. But on the final play, Lindenhurst went outside and headed straight for the endzone, the score 14-0. The Northport Tigers offense attacked the outside early with successful completions by Robert Murray, Ethan Roman and Jackson McDonnell. The line, again heeding following their coaches game plan, opened holes and followed up with good blocking for their halfbacks. The tigers answered back with a touchdown by Jack Driscoll off a superb block by lineman Ryan Muller, followed by a hard outside run by Rob Murray to tie the score, 14-14 at the half. Continued tackling by Northport's secondary and grunt work in the trenches stopped the Lindenhurst offense at the line of scrimmage on several plays during the 2nd half. Despite the efforts of the tiger defense, Lindenhurst attacked well and scored another 3 touchdowns, the score 35-14. The tiger backfield had consecutive gains by John Muzyka, Jack Driscoll and Jared Schaeffer as Northport marched downfield and a 3rd touchdown was scored by Ethan Roman, who broke several Lindenhurst tackles as he hit the end zone.

Sunday the 7 Black Tigers will face another perennial football power, Central Suffolk.

7 Year Old Red Tigers  
Sayville 14, Northport 6
The 7 Red Tigers continued to play hard but fell a touchdown short to the Flash in a sustained defensive battle on Sayville’s home field Sunday. The difference at halftime was a slim extra point after made by Sayville. In this battle the tiger defense was stingy after letting up the first touchdown of the game. The defense, led by Billy Cocks, Connor Henigman and Enrique Hern├índez forced fumbles today one of which was recovered for a turnover. Following the fumble recovery the tigers’ setup for their second drive on offense at Sayville’s 35. Runs by backs Connor Henigman, Billy Cocks and Joseph Zarcone were capped by QB Tommy O’Briens’ 21 yard touchdown run behind a great push off the line by Cameron Foley, Dean Mason, Jack Strebel and Giovanni Valenti. The tiger defense was led in tackles by OLB Tommy O’Brien with four solo tackles. Registering two each solo tackles on defense were Enrique Hernandez, Frank Moscati and Joseph Zarcone. Thomas Franco again made a touchdown saving tackle in the second half to keep the tigers within one score. Tommy O’Brien led all tiger rushers with a total of 53 yards and one touchdown. A tough loss for the tigers this week. We’ll line it up again next week at home against 3 Village on Saturday at 6PM. Come on out for the tailgate.

8 Year Old Black Tigers
Northport 6, Connetquot 0
The Tigers won a hard fought defensive battle vs Connetquot 6-0. The defense was outstanding lead by Defensive End Quinn Reynolds with 10 tackles. Sean Lyons, Anthony Lang, James Omalley and Chris Holms all registered tackles for losses. With the nifty running of halfback Tim McLam and QB Luca Elmaleh, the Tigers capped off a 7 Play 50 yard drive with Fullback Julian Bush bulling his way to a 7 yard TD run just before halftime. The offensive line, Nick Nicastro, Tanner Schultz, Connor Farrington, Will Meyer and Anthony Lang did a great job of controlling the line of scrimmage and executing their blocking assignments during the drive.

10 Year Old Black Tigers
Sayville 12 Northport 6 
The Tigers took their game on the road to face a talented Sayville squad. A solid defensive stand on the opening drive of the game gave the Tigers an opportunity to take the lead.  Several solid runs by Tiger running backs put the Tigers deep in Sayville territory. A nice reverse from Dan Saracino to Jack Helrigel resulted in a 23 yard touchdown run. Blocking by Offensive Line members John Locke, Michael Petrucelly, Nick Shorey, Ryan McEnroe, Owen McIntee, Dan Eagers and Jaden Song made the touchdown run possible.  The extra point try was unsuccessful making the score 6-0. The Tiger defense once again stepped up big causing a fumble that was recovered by Jacob Lubeck. The Tigers were driving the ball thanks to great running by Dylan McNaughton.  However, the Tigers could not finish the drive. Sayville took over on downs and a few plays later were able to break a long run for a touchdown. The Tigers held firm on the extra point try making the score 6-6. Again, the Tigers drove the ball deep into Sayville territory, but lost it on a fumble late in the first half.  Sayville used the clock wisely and scored another long touchdown on the last play of the half.  Halftime score Sayville 12 Northport 6. The second half was a back and forth defensive battle. The Tigers powerful run game was held in check by the Sayville defense. The Tigers defense also stepped up to stop the Sayville offense. Andrew Canales, Owen McIntee, Dan Eagers, John Locke, Ryan Petrucelly and Nick Shorey combined on tackles ending Sayville drives and giving the Tigers a chance to get the offense on the field. The typically potent Tigers offense moved the ball, but couldn't break the plane of the endzone.  However, defensively the Tigers consistently came up big. Middle Linebackers Jaden Song and Michael Petrucelly controlled the middle of the field and made the Sayville offense realize there was no room to run up the middle.  Sayville was able to break a run on the outside that looked like a sure touchdown until the Sayville running back was caught from behind by Jackson Campbell and tackled.  Campbell's tackle forced a fumble near the goal line that was recovered by Jacob Lubeck. The Tigers had one more chance to win the game. Again, the Tigers were able mount a drive deep into Sayville territory, but a fumble late in the game foiled any possibility of a comeback and Sayville held on for a hard fought 12-6 victory. The Tigers return home next weekend looking to rebound against Half Hollow Hills.

10 Year Old Red Tigers
Sayville 19, Northport 7
After a convincing win to start the season the Tigers hit the road on Friday night to take on the Golden Flashes from Sayville. The Tigers came out of the gate in a big way. On the second play from scrimmage DT Jason Mohlmann bursted through the line, hit the back from Sayville who fumbled the ball. Mohlmann saw the ball get jarred loose and promptly jumped on it putting the Tigers in the drivers seat early on. A big gain by RB Jack Sandrib was negated by a holding call, and the early momentum from the Tigers was gone. The Golden Flashes recovered a Tiger fumble and converted on a 4th and long and eventually found the end zone for a 7-0 lead. The Tigers could not get much going in the 2nd quarter from an offensive standpoint. The defense was playing tough against a very big Sayville team. On a 4th down play the Sayville QB took the snap, pitched left, the halfback ran left and threw a 35 yard touchdown pass to the wide receiver. Sometimes you just need to tip your cap to the other team. This Tiger team refused to quit and they did not back down. They got knocked around by the home team but kept getting up off of the mat. "Cheech" Raio was tackling anyone that came his way. Thomas Ricciardi and fellow lineman Ryan Kraus followed his lead. Aidan Tarnowski in turn, followed their lead along with Luke Lamendola. There was a beautiful play made by Tyler Kuprianchick when he batted down a pass intended for the receiver. The most impressive thing about the Tigers in this game came at the end. Down 19-0 with 4 minutes to play they drove the distance of the field and Sandrib took it into the end zone from 13 yards out. QB Will Murphy added the extra point and the clock ran out. The Tigers could have mailed it in and accepted the defeat. Nope, not this group. Sometimes the winners tip their caps to the losing team as well. 

10 Year Old Blue
Connetquot 20, Northport 19
The Northport 10 Blue Team fell just a little bit short this week, rallying from 13-0 deficit in the first half. The boys really stepped up their play in the second half and found the end zone 3 times on a 66 and 4 yard touchdown by Aidan Murdock and a 6 yard touchdown by Chase Hendrickson. Patrick Sweeney ran 3 yards on a QB keep to give the Blue team its extra point. Great blocking by Robert McGinley at left tackle, Brandon Meiner at right tackle and Drew Bloom at tight end helped the 10 Blue boys gain 232 total yards from scrimmage. The boys held Connetquot to less than 50 total yards in the second half supported by great defensives plays by Nick Bennett, Robert McGinley and Patrick Sweeney.   

11 Year Old Black Tigers
Northport 20, Half Hollow Hills 0
Northport 11U Black got their first win of the season 21-0 to even their record at 1-1. It was a trememdous team effort where Northport started off the game on defense led by solid play from their two defensive ends Tristan Triolo and Ryan Wagner. After holding the opponent Northports offense took over with strong running up the middle from their fullback Andrew Argyris who was gaining 10 yards a play. Dazzling the opponent on the outside was Rafe Carner whose speed and cutback ability made it hard to stop him. Quarterback Connor Gallagher mixed in the runs with a few passes for some positive yards. It's impossible to mention the backfield without mentioning the line the opened up the holes all day long. From left to right along the O-Line were Max Brustmeyer, Justin Baskam, Denzel Blake, Chris Bolitho and Andrew Bloom. Northports opponent, HHH, threatened a few times but the defense came up with some key tackles on the outside from their two cornerbacks Robbie Kennedy and Rocco Stola. 

11 Year Old Red Tigers
Northport 12, Deer Park 6
Northport Tigers were on the road again on Sunday playing Deer Park. Although the Tigers trailed 6-0 the first half of the game due to a fumble early on just shy of the end zone, they buckled down and fought back.  Fullback Joe Evans barreled up the middle multiple times consistently getting the Tigers downfield and racking up the most rushing yardage.  Jacob Buell did a nice job sealing up the end on defense.  Some good tackles by Micheal Catrone,  Aaron Winnegar, and Jack Vitale kept the Deer Park offense from getting anywhere. Ryan Kropp made two nice catches from solid throws by QB Christian Pastore.  On defense Christian also nearly made an interception blocking the throw by Deer Park.  Justice Felice did a great job on offensive end allowing the running backs to get around the outside to continue the drives downfield.  Chris Brown was on top his game with two fumble recoveries getting the Tigers possession and putting them back in the game.  A sweep around the outside by Casey Fortunato scoring the Tiger's first TD tying up the game shortly into the second half.  Some quick moves and hard hitting by Jake Serroen who caused two Deer Park fumbles and a QB sack.  Recovering the fumble was Angelo Prestipino putting the Tigers back on the offense in the last quarter of the game. Running through the hole made by the strong Tiger offense Bruce Peden runs in the second TD.  Kyle Camenzuli and Thomas McDonagh kept the pressure on in the back field.  Tiger defense with great tackles all day by safety Ryan Bell held Deer Park and left Northport time for one last offense drive. Aidan Sawczyk drove through the middle gaining 3 yards.  Emerson Payne ran around the outside pulling past Deer Park defenders and was stopped a few feet short of the TD line when the clock ran out.  A great team effort by all against a close competitor.

11 Year Old White Tigers
Three Village 26, Northport 13
After allowing a Three Village touchdown, the Tigers came storming back when, for the second week in a row, Quarterback Tommy Fitzgerald hit Wingback Aidan Hickman for a long touchdown pass.  Parker Dietrich then ran in the extra point on an end around to tie the game at 7.  The Tigers had a tough time with Three Village's strong running  attack in the second half giving up three touchdowns.  Then, showing determination and pride, the Tigers mounted a fourth quarter drive highlighted by several long runs each by Halfback Jason Schwartz and Fitzgerald, who capped the drive with a touchdown run.   Also playing well were Vincent Gaddis. Sam Everitt, Rob Pisicani, Will Tyska, Conner Higgins and Max Bratchie.

12 Year Old Black Tigers
Kings Park 29, Northport 7
With the absence of two starting lineman and their starting runningback, the 12 year old Northport team faced some adversity this Saturday. Facing a solid Kings Park team they suffered a loss. Captains Anthony Vozza and Sean Jeffery hooked up for a 60 yard TD pass and catch in the second quarter for Northport. Vozza went 8/12 for 126 yards and 1 touchdown. Jeffery had 5 receptions for 102 yards and 1 touchdown along with 6 tackles and a forced fumble on defense. Hunter Bloom added 3 receptions on offense and 3 tackles with a blocked extra point attempt on defense. Jack Ricciardi had a solid defensive performance with 7 tackles, 2 of which were for loss. Northport eventually settled down in the second half only allowing 1 TD and if it weren't for an unfortunate lost fumble in the red zone they may have put in another TD in the 4th.

7 Year Old Red Tigers  
Smithtown 13, Northport 0
In their first outing of the season this Sunday, the Tiger 7 Red team suffered a defeat to the Smithtown Bulls. The Tiger Offense mounted four drives, the second starting at the Tigers own 35 yard line and making it down to the Bulls 15 before  time ran out in the half while the last was an 11-play grinder that again started at the Tigers own 35 and made it down close to the Smithtown goal line before the drive ended on the 3.  In total, the Tigers racked up 125 yards on the ground despite the superior size of the Bulls D-Line.  QB Tommy O'Brien and WB William Cocks paced the Tigers with 47 yards apiece. The Defense held tough against a much larger Smithtown O-Line but surrendered 158 yards on the ground, 127 of which came on two big runs for the Smithtown scores. Leading tacklers included Tommy O'Brien, Connor Henigman and Thomas Franco (who made a great open-field touchdown saving tackle in the 4th quarter). The Tigers 7 Red team travels to Sayville next Saturday night.

7 Year Old Black Tigers
Longwood 12, Northport 7
The 7 black team traveled East for their opener against a formidable Longwood team. The tigers moved the ball on the opening drive but fumbled quickly and turned it over. On the very next play an angered defense led by Brady Cooke forced a fumble. Cooke recovered it and the Tigers got back at it. After moving the ball to mid-field the Longwood defense stopped the Tigers and forced them to punt. Longwood began a lengthy drive and Northport's Luke Marino made key tackles which slowed them. Ultimately they scored, but did not convert for the extra point . In the 2nd quarter Colin Maher continued to push down the Longwood defensive line allowing nice runs by Gavin Stabile. Jace DiPalo also contributed with a nice run around the outside. From the 10 yard line Preston Carey dragged defenders on a run to the outside, and with the help of his teammates pushing the pile he stretched the ball across the goal line for a Tiger touchdown. Stabile converted easily on the extra point, running behind strong man Colin Maher. That would be the last score for the Tigers. Longwood had another big drive in the 4th resulting in a touchdown around the outside. Northport prevented the extra point, but they could not respond with a touchdown in the final minutes. The 7 Black Tigers have a challenging schedule on tap against Long Island's top football programs. They face Lynvets at home on Sunday, and then look ahead to Central Suffolk, Sayville, Pat/Med, Riverhead, and the Sharks.

8 Year Old Red Tigers
East Islip 19, Northport 7
The Tiger 8 Red opened their season on a hot Sunday afternoon against visiting East Islip. Both teams were feeling the heat and played to a stalemate until East Islip scored in the first half. The score was 6-0 at the end of the half. The Tiger defense led by Joey Baker, Andrew Locke, Julian Coscia, Ryan McCloskey, Ben Pipolo, Henry Barbagallo, Joe Ferland, Giancarlo Valenti, Tommy Acosta, Tommy Aiello,  and Robert Germani held stout until East Islip managed to score two more touchdowns in the second half. The offense, after starting off slow, eventually strung a long drive together capped by a run by running back Giancarlo Valenti complete with a beautifully executed stiff arm to scamper 50 yards for the Tigers only touchdown of the day. The Tiger 8 Red team continues their season on September 21st away at Port Jefferson following their Bye Week.

10 Year Old Blue Tigers
Westhampton Beach 20, Northport 6,

10 Year Old Red Tigers
Northport 19, Center Moriches 0
The Labor Day Weekend brings us back to the daily routines, the crisper air and in Northport it brings a new season of Tiger Football. The Seahawks from Center Moriches made the long trip to Vets Field and the Tigers did not give them a warm welcome. The visitors had the ball to open the game and after a big hit to the running back he fumbled the ball and Tommy Ricciardi pounced on the ball for a Tiger turnover. After a small gain on 1st down by Tim Kirchner Jack Sandrib took a handoff from QB Will Murphy and raced 42 yards for a touchdown. The Seahawks had a promising drive going until a swarming gang tackle by the Tigers resulted in yet another fumble recovery by the Tiger Defense, this time it was Aidan Campbell who came out of the pile with the pigskin. On the ensuing play Jack Sandrib took a handoff, ran right, got to the outside, juked a defender and it was no looking back as he took it 50 yards for pay dirt . The Seahawks, desperate for some points decided to go for it on a 4th and long situation. Ryan Kraus came up with a big stop, deflating the visitors. Sandrib struck again. Another 50 yard touchdown run, giving the Tigers a 19-0 halftime lead. In the 4th quarter the featured backs for the Tigers were Michael Raio and Thomas Butler. They were taking turns ripping off large runs and Tyler Kuprianchick got into the mix as well. The Tigers were knocking on the door again until a turnover deep in Seahawk territory cost them the ball. After the Seahawks got the ball back any hopes they had of getting back into the game were thwarted on a big 4th down stop by Defensive End Chris Chelius who just never gave up on the play. It was a happy day for the 10 year old Red Tigers as they went on to a 19-0 win.

10 Year Old Black Tigers
Northport 21 Kings Park 6
The Tigers kicked off the 2014 season with a game against a tough Kings Park team.  The Tiger defense was tested on the opening possession as King Park put together a long drive into Tiger territory.  With their backs against the wall the defense stiffened thanks to great tackling by Dan Eagers, Andrew Canales and the rest of the D-line.  The Tigers took possession and went to work.  After three runs that didn't gain many yards the Tigers were faced with a 4th down and 8 yards to go from their own 17 yard line.  On 4th down Jack Helrigel took the hand off on a reverse from Dan Saracino and raced up the left sideline for an 83 yard touchdown.  This play was set up by a great block by Quarterback Andrew Klis.  The extra point conversion was run in by Jacob Lubeck making the score 7-0. The Tigers defense held up again on Kings Park's next possession forcing a turnover on downs near mid-field.  On the Tigers second offensive play Jackson Campbell took the hand off and split the Kings Park secondary for a 45 yard touchdown.  Again, Jacob Lubeck was successful on the extra point conversion making the score 14-0. As halftime neared the Tigers were looking for more points.  KIngs Park attempted a pass that resulted in a fumble after a hard hit by Dylan McNaughton.  Jacob Lubeck scooped up the fumble for another forced turnover.  A few plays later Jack Helrigel broke free down the right sideline for 27 yards and his second touchdown of the day.  Jacob "Extra Point" Lubeck punched it in for a third time making the score 21-0 at halftime. The second half saw the Tiger defense really take charge.  Big hits by Michael Petrucelly, Owen McIntee, John Locke and Ryan McEnroe kept Kings Park out of the endzone for much of the second half.  The hard hits and sure tackling of the defense sealed the game.  Kings Park was able to score late in the 4th quarter after the game was well in hand making the final score Northport 21 Kings Park 6.

11 Year Old White Tigers
North Shore Colts 13, Northport 7
After two goal line stands in the first half denying the Colts a score, the Tigers finally gave up a short touchdown run to the Colts' quarterback just before the half.  The defense then came up big on the goal line again, not allowing the extra point.  The Tigers battled back on the opening snap of the second half when Quarterback Tommy Fitzgerald hit Aidan Hickman for a 65 yard touchdown pass.  Fitzgerald then ran in the extra point to take the lead for the Tigers.  The second half was a even battle until the Colts finally broke a long run around the left end setting up their second score to seal the game.  Halfback Sam Everitt ran the ball effectively for the Tigers on offense while Vincent Gaddis controlled the line of scrimmage at Center.  Defensively, the Tigers were led by Ryan Rufe and Will Tyska at defensive back, Gaddis, Max Bratchie and Johnny Chapman on the defensive line, Conner Higgins and Parker Dietrich at Linebacker and Fitzgerald at Defensive End. Also chipping in were Dan Jacobsen, Tyler Cotter, Aidan and Dylan Foley, Rob Pisicani, Louie Fiorino, Frankie Rasizzi and Jason Schwartz.  The Tigers look to bounce back next week at Three Village.

The value of the Internet and social marketing alone that you'll be part of is greater than $10,000. So if you're ready to have a lot of fun this season and become a local celebrity and brand, contact us immediately. There is only one slot for this.

Dear Tiger Families,

We are getting closer to the launch of the 2014 season and I look forward to meeting you at the upcoming parent meeting and kickoff jamboree. I encourage you to come over to the middle school early on July 21st and take advantage of the BBQ and refreshments. Please see important dates below and check our website and facebook page often for any changes.

*Note that our 12 year old "Seniors" will start practice on Tuesday July 15, at 7:00pm with Coach Mauro and Coach Gueits. We have a number of former NFL and NCAA players that will be working with this special team throughout the season including Erik Coleman (9 yrs NFL), James Brady, Matt Johnson, and more. Players should wear shorts, cleats, and bring a water bottle on Tuesday.
