Westfield ‘B’ PAL Thumps Chatham Footballers, 35-0
The Westfield PAL “B” team thumped Chatham, 35-0, in Chatham on November 8. The Blue Devils’ defense led by Adam Trzesniowski, Jan Cocozziello and Eric Hayes formed an impenetrable wall forcing Chatham to punt three plays into the game.
Tommy Roche dashed 20 yards to the Chatham 40. Key gains by Bart Walsh and Cocozziello set the stage for Eric Hayes to lead the Blue Devils into the end zone for a 6-0 lead behind key blocks by Brian Bigelow and Mark Harbaugh. Andrew Garrison’s extra point was good, upping the lead to 7-0.
On the next Chatham drive, Cocozziello intercepted the ball on the Chatham 45 and sprinted to the 20. Two plays later, he connected with Hayes who again reached the end zone. Garrison’s kick put Westfield ahead 14-0.
The blue wall of Keith Zemsky, Tyshon Blackmon, and Joe Witkowski halted Chatham in its tracks. Roche returned Chatham’s punt for 47 yards before being brought down at the 30.
Strong runs by Marc Dowling and Richard Brautigam set up Andrew Shafer’s 10-yard touchdown run.
Blackmon and Brandon Pantano mowed down the opposition’s defense. Again, Garrison was on the mark and the Blue Devils catapulted to a 21-0 lead.
Any hopes that Chatham may have had for getting back in the game were thwarted by the swarming defense of Zemsky, Bigelow, Schafer, Blackmon and Dowling. Chatham fumbled and Bigelow recovered the ball. Despite a strong offensive performance by Alex Regenstreich, Westfield was forced to bring in punter Terrance Bryant.
Chatham’s offense was held to no gain by Witkowski, Zemsky, Dowling and Neil Kroncke. Chatham’s punt was returned by Schafer for 10 yards. On the next play, Cocozziello sprinted 55 yards for the score with fine blocking by Witkowski, Adam Trzesniowski and Terrance Bryant. Garrison’s kick was good. The Blue Devils ruled 28-0.
Later, the Blue Devils, forced a Chatham fumble which was recovered by Brad Trzesniowski at the 5yard line. Brautigam ran the ball in for the touchdown. Garrison’s kick was on target. Mercifully, the clock ran down, but not before Westfield rolled to a 35-0 victory.

Killer Bees U-12 Girls Sting Cobras Soccer Team, 1-0
Union county’s two best U-12 girls traveling soccer teams engaged in an exciting and fast paced game. The best defensive team in the county, the Westfield Killer Bees, has allowed only three goals all season while the Cranford Cobras excelled offensively with 17 goals.
Cranford’s offense quickly brought pressure on the defenders, but fullbacks, Emily MacNeil, Hannah Burke and Justine Palme worked hard to keep the Cobras out of the 18-yard box. This gave sweeper Jessie Elkoury time to clear all but three shots on goal which keeper Annie Onishi easily handled.
As the half progressed, the Bees midfielders, Jenna Federgreen, Aly Carter, Jessica Schor, Anne Siwulec and Sarah Hansen began to work more effectively to blunt the Cobras’ attack and move the ball up to forwards Stephanie Bridgeman, Gio Palatucci, Lauren Purdy and Caroline Cariste.
For the last 20 minutes of the half the play moved rapidly from end-to-end, but effective defense by both sides allowed only one shot on goal. At the half, the game remained scoreless.
Both sides faced off with renewed determination in the second half. The Killer Bees halfbacks, which included Amanda Dickson moved quickly to win most of the loose balls and to move the ball into space for a good passes to their forwards.
As the half progressed, the Bees continued to pressure the Cobras with several strong attacks up the sides resulting in good crosses that were al
most converted into goals. However, it was the excellent play by Carter and Maher, who clearly dominated the play in the middle.
In the final quarter the Bees began to showcase their quickness by cutting in front of the Cobra players to steal several goal kicks. Dickson, Maher and MacNeil each sent strong shots towards the Cranford goal. Cranford managed to engineer several breakaways. This resulted in a series of one-on-one battles between Cranford’s high-scoring forwards and Westfield’s superb fullbacks. Great recovery runs by the Bees’ fullbacks, solid play by the sweepers and flawless goaltending by Elkoury, shut out the Cranford offense.
With only minutes to go, Carter volleyed ball-after-ball up towards the forwards. Finally, with only two minutes left, Carter placed a perfect ball to right wing Cariste who powered a shot to the far post where left wing Bridgeman knocked in the winning goal.

The Fire and the Rapids of the Scotch Plains-Fanwood Soccer Association Second Grade Division closed out the 1998 Fall season with a very exciting game on November 7. Both teams did an outstanding job on both the offensive and defensive ends of the field.
Tom Reade and Vincent Bianco shared the goaltending duties for the Fire and each did an excellent job. Both players came up with several key saves and cleared the ball out of their zone. Again, the Fire defenders, turned in a stellar performance. Chris McManus was flawless from his sweeper position.
John Maxwell and James Mason displayed lots of hustle as they were constantly in the thick of the action getting the ball out to their teammates. Brian Gerrity and Philip Rosenkrantz also came up with several big plays on the defensive end as they stopped their opponent’s scoring threats.
Offensively, Jimmy Walsh and Joseph Del Prete combined speed, hustle and outstanding ball control as they made several key passes and kept constant pressure on their opponent’s defense throughout the game. Matt Graziano and Jeremy Kaufman also chipped in on the offensive end by consistently looking for the open man.
Blake Van Buskirk got the Fire on the scoreboard first as he has done so many times this season. He took an excellent pass from Graziano and put it past the goalie for the first score in the game. Brendan McEvoy closed out the Fire scoring with 2 quick goals late in the second half as he impressed the crowd with superb soccer skills.

SPF Express Ties South Brunswick
The SPF Express took on South Brunswick last weekend in a battle for first place in their U-11 flight and fought to a 0-0 tie.
Dominating the entire game, the Express could never convert that elusive deciding goal in spite of taking close to 20 shots, many of which hit the posts or the crossbars or rolled just wide left and right.
South Brunswick, meanwhile, ran into a stifling defense. Led by Joseph Jacobi’s skillful fullback play, Sean Young’s intimidating but clean physical play at sweeper and Clayton Balch’s versatility at center halfback, the Express held South Brunswick to one shot on goal for the entire game.
Anthony Baliatico and Brian Osbahr continued their strong showing at fullback, while offensively Jack Davis set up several opportunities with good lead passes to Brian Halpin who pressured South Brunswick’s defense continuously during the last 10 minutes of the game. Both teams remain tied for the flight lead with two games to play.
