Our High School kids were a true example of community spirit at the game yesterday. Congratulations to our boys! The mayor invited the community to Soccerfest yesterday while at the same time our High School kids were rising to the challenge of missing almost 2 weeks of school but yet everyone - the team, cheerleaders, kickline and our AMAZING band all pulled of a victory that will now send us off to HOFSTRA!!! I'm glad I was there to support our high school kids. Come cheer on our kids this Friday, 7:30 pm at Hofstra! GO BIG RED!

Way to go Big Red! It has been years since Glen Cove Football has made an appearance at the Big 4 at Hofstra, but this team is doing things not seen before in Glen Cove. After that week 1 loss, 8 wins in a row to get to Hofstra is incredible. Great job Kopecky and the rest of that coaching staff now beat Plainedge!!!
