Although it took them a little time to get up and running, the NY Shamrocks Soccer Club from Queens blew Port Jefferson away at St Michael’s Playground in Woodside on Sunday, firing five goals past the Long Island side to advance to the second round. Shane Moore opened the scoring after 30 minutes for Glen Wrafter’s first team before Mike Stone made it 2-0 before half-time. A Mohamed Fofana penalty brought his tally to seven for the season and after an own goal from the visitors, Santiago Rigby wrapped up the scoring with his sixth of the season. There was less joy elsewhere - the reserves long trip to East Hampton FC yielded a frustrating 1-0 defeat to the relative newcomers to the Long Island Soccer League. The league leading reserves embarked on the 200-mile round trip with confidence but in tough conditions, an early defensive error cost the Rocks dearly. Stevie Doyle’s team rallied and battled well, their opponents going down to ten men in the second half but ultimately it was to no avail. Meanwhile in the Marth Cup, Barnstonworth Premier beat Paddy McCarry’s Over 30s 2-1 at Randall’s Island on Sunday night. Alex Berne was on the mark once again for his side. The Shamrocks Women were overturned 5-0 by Smoking Aces at Lief Ericson in Brooklyn. It will be back to league action next weekend with newcomers NY Supreme coming to St Michael’s Playground to take on the firsts and reserves beginning at 11 a.m.. The NY Supreme first team have a record of two wins, two losses and a draw so far in the league while their reserves have enjoyed an impressive start to the season with four wins and just one defeat. The Over 30s host NY Greek Americans at Randalls Island Field 75 at 8 a.m. and the women’s team will be in Williamsburg to take on Astoria at 10 a.m.

Celebrating Senior Day, the St. Joseph’s College women’s soccer team downed Washington Adventist University, 5-2, on Sunday at Aviator Sports and Events Center.
Fresh off of Wednesday’s 15-0 victory, the Lady Bears (10-3) looked to stay in the win column on a day they celebrated the careers of seniors Shannon Rom (Breezy Point/Bishop Kearney), Daniela Semilia (Brooklyn/Bishop Kearney), Melissa Maloy (Staten Island/St. John Villa) and Nicole Farinella (East Patchogue/Bellport) in their final home games in a Lady Bears uniform.
But Washington Adventist (1-6) jumped on St. Joseph’s early. They opened the scoring in the 7th minute off of an unassisted goal by Aaliyah Payton. Before Shannon Fahy (Breezy Point,/Bishop Kearney) leveled the game with her 19th goal of the season in the 15th minute. Four minutes later, the Shock put the Lady Bears back in a hole on a Karis Powell strike.
After twenty minutes of scoreless play, the Lady Bears turned the tide by netting two quick goals in the space of three minutes. First, in the 39th minute, Cansu Usta (Brooklyn/Fort Hamilton) put away her NCAA-leading 31st goal of the season helped by a midfield cross from Rom. 
Shortly after, Pamela Chernyakhovsky (Brooklyn/Leon M. Goldstein) gave St. Joseph’s a 3-2 lead heading into intermission and the Lady Bears never trailed again.
The Lady Bears rode the momentum into the second half. Helped by Chernyakhovsky’s sideline cross Rom scored on Senior Day less than 10 minutes into the second half. The Lady Bears maintained the two-goal lead for the remainder of the period, but with just seconds remaining, Suzanne Nordbo (Brooklyn/Fontbonne Hall) took advantage of the Shock’s desperate offense and netted her first career goal, sealing St. Joseph’s 5-2 victory.
St. Joseph’s maintained a 25-15 shot differential for the contest and Farinella made nine saves to earn the victory in net.
The win pushed the Lady Bears to 10-win mark for the first time in program history.
Coming off two consecutive victories, the Lady Bears will take on Berkeley College at Aviator Field on Thursday, October 23, at 6:15 p.m. in their HVIAC regular season finale.

Men not so lucky
The St. Joseph’s men’s soccer team couldn’t send off their seniors with a win on Senior Day, falling behind early and losing 3-1 to No. 8 Washington Adventist University in a United States Collegiate Athletic Association affair at Aviator.
The Bears (6-6) entered the contest coming off a two-game winning streak but returned back to the .500 mark on a day celebrating the careers of seniors Michael Miner (Schenevus/Schneveus), Raul Urshela (Orlando/Colonial), Marco Fuentes (Orlando/Timber Creek) and Vinny Rossi (Bayside/Holy Cross).
After a slow start from both teams, Samuel Kashai’s breakaway goal down the sideline broke the scoreless tie for the Shock (7-5) in the 21st minute. Ryan Senior extended the Shock’s lead to 2-0 in the 37th minute finishing a feed from Eric Sierra Marrero.
Shortly into the second half, St. Joseph’s finally broke through on Beka Goduadze’s (Tbilisi/Lyceum “NK”) 48th minute unassisted goal, his team-leading ninth of the season.
In the 56th minute, Kashai powered a free kick through the Bears’ defense, tallying his second goal of the day and extra insurance for the Shock.
The Bears would be unable to find the back of the net again, dropping the game 3-1. St. Joseph’s almost matched Adventist in the shot department, 18-16, but were unable to capitalize on scoring chances late in the game.
St. Joseph’s currently sits in fourth place in the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference standings and will now shift their focus to their final two regular season games, both pivotal conference matchups looking to lock up their first tournament berth. 
First up, the Bears were set to face Berkeley College on the road on Wednesday, October 22, at 6 p.m.

Effinex stuns the field in busy day at Belmont Park
Oct 22, 2014 | 1 views | 0 0 comments | 0 0 recommendations | email to a friend | print
Wearing a set of blinkers belonging to his multiple graded stakes-winning stablemate, Wicked Strong, Effinex outdueled So Lonesome in a fierce battle to the wire for an upset in Saturday’s $300,000 Empire Classic Handicap, the centerpiece of Empire Showcase Day at Belmont Park. While four of the eight stakes races devoted exclusively to New York-breds went to favorites, Effinex’s victory as the longest shot in the field of nine was the surprise of the afternoon on track. Effinex, whose previous best finish in a stakes race was second in the Albany on August 24, was away alertly and then settled in midpack as So Lonesome led through three-quarters. Moved into contention on the turn by jockey Angel Arroyo, Effinex angled out at the top of the stretch to launch his bid, drawing even with So Lonesome in the final yards and edging ahead to win by a neck. “I followed [So Lonesome] all the way,” said Arroyo, who won the Mohawk aboard Kharafa earlier on the card. “[The blinkers] made a big difference today.” The Mineshaft colt earned his third career victory and first for Jimmy Jerkens, who took over Effinex’s training this summer. Following the Albany, Effinex finished third, beaten 10 lengths, in an optional claimer on September 28, after which Jerkens decided to make the equipment change. Effinex more than doubled his lifetime earnings to $328,350 for Tri-Bone Stables. Princess Violet had no trouble in her return to state-bred company, drawing away to an emphatic 5 ½-length victory in the inaugural $250,000 Empire Distaff for fillies and mares, just her second lifetime start beyond 6 ½ furlongs. Owned by Barry Schwartz and trained by Mike Hushion, the three-year-old Officer filly rated behind the early leaders before sweeping to the lead on the far outside approaching the stretch and pulling clear under a hand ride from jockey Jose Ortiz, who picked up his third consecutive victory on the card. Lady Sheila Stable’s La Verdad found her way back to the winner’s circle after cruising to a wire-to-wire, 1 1/4-length win over Willet in the $150,000 Iroquois for fillies and mares three and older going 6 1/2 furlongs. “She obviously likes Belmont, and it’s nice to get her back in the winner’s circle,” said La Verdad’a trainer Linda Rice. Kharafa took the lead from favored King Kreesa after six furlongs and held off a late bid from Lubash to win the 36th running of the $200,000 Mohawk for three-year-olds and up. It was the sixth victory in 13 lifetime starts at Belmont Park for the 5-year-old Kharafa, who was 10th of 11 behind King Kreesa in last year’s race. Back on just two weeks’ rest following her sixth-place finish in the Grade 1 First Lady at Keeneland, Discreet Marq was an easy three-length winner in her return to state-bred company, taking the 34th renewal of the $200,000 Ticonderoga Discreet Marq earned $120,000 to push her over the $1 million mark in lifetime purses with $1,067,900. In the first of two races for juveniles, Eric Fein’s Ostrolenka took charge in the stretch and pulled away for a 2 1/2-length victory over Good Luck Gus to win the $250,000 Sleepy Hollow at one mile on the dirt. In the Sleepy Hollow’s sister race, Marc Keller’s Quezon showed trainer Bobby Ribaudo she indeed could go a mile by taking the lead in the stretch and winning the $250,000 Maid of the Mist by six lengths over favorite Temper Mint Patty. “”Common sense says you shouldn’t be doing this, but how many times can you run for a quarter of a million dollars with a New York-bred 2-year-old filly?” said Ribaudo. “She was doing great, so we went.” Moonlight Song closed out the afternoon’s stakes with a front-running victory in the $150,000 Hudson Handicap for sprinters. “He’s the best horse I have in the barn,” said winning trainer Charlton Baker of the 7-year-old gelded son of Unbridled’s Song. LOOKING AHEAD This is the last weekend of racing action at Belmont Park before Aqueduct Racetrack opens on Wednesday, October 29. The park will still be open for simulcasting. Saturday features two stakes races, the Grade III Bold Ruler, seven furlong on dirt for three-year-olds and up with a $200,000 purse, and the Chelsey Flower, one mile on dirt with a $100,000 purse. Sunday will see the running of the Grade III Turnback the Alarm for three-year-olds and up over 1 1/16 miles on dirt with a purse of $200,000, and the Awad, one mile on turf for two-year-olds with a purse of $100,000.
