Estefany Delgado, No. 10, got the only three goals of the game last week as York College in Jamaica defeated Berkeley College 3-0. Delgado, of Ozone Park, attended Richmond Hill High School. York goalkeeper Sarah Hiliare recorded the shutout.
The sophomore, shown in a picture taken last year, broke a scoreless tie at the 51-minute mark. Seventeen minutes later Jessica Cornejos’ throw-in found Delgado open, setting up her second goal. She also scored a penalty kick in the 79th minute.

Testing, testing, one, two, three ...
That’s what students do when they want to get into one of the city’s eight elite high schools — Stuyvesant, Bronx Science and the like, including, in this borough, Queens High School for the Sciences at York College.
The Queens version of the High Line may actually happen after all.
The plan to turn the abandoned Rockaway Beach rail line into a linear park has a detailed proposal. A piece of it, in the northern end of the former Long Island Rail Road route, could even be built within the next year.
Police arrested a Jamaica Hills man on Sept. 24 for allegedly shining a high-powered laser beam into an NYPD helicopter flying over the area looking for a suspect in an assault case.
“I put the helicopter in hover and all of a sudden I see, out of the corner of my eye, a bright green light that illuminated the cockpit,” said Officer Tarek Otero, the pilot.

Autumn is here and the chill can be felt in the air. The weather has been very sunny and bright, for many days now, but the chill is still there. I just hope that a certain day in October is a warm sunny day.

The 102nd Precinct has had a safe, but not so quiet, summer.
At the first community council meeting since June on Tuesday night at the Richmond Hill Library, Officer Andrew Goldenberg, the precinct’s top traffic enforcer who was standing in for Deputy Inspector Hank Sautner, told the audience that crime in the precinct had plummeted in the last month across the board.
During their first meeting back from the summer, Community Board 9 members — in no uncertain terms — announced they were done with the high density of bars and nightclubs in the district area.
Faced with several new liquor licenses and a renewal, several members of the board at Tuesday night’s meeting at Villa Russo in Richmond Hill suggested voting down all of them, despite their applications being submitted on time, without any discrepancies and no complaints about the specific owners or locations. The reason? There are too many already.
In the final days before Mayor de Blasio’s ambitious — and perhaps signature — first term policy initiative rolls out, the finishing touches were being put on classrooms across the city, and City Hall was dealing with the bumps in the road.
More than 50,000 students, the first class in the mayor’s universal prekindergarten program, were slated to meet their teachers for the first time on Thursday.
Career counselor Nancy Cafferty sits at a small round table opposite two young ladies who have come for guidance in their search for fulfillment in the workforce.
Kafayat Onanuga, of Jamaica, is in her mid-20s and has been through the process before. Leandra Cedeno, who lives in Ridgewood and is also 20-something, has come for the first time.
Growing up, Mark Lord, contributing writer for the Queens Chronicle and retired English teacher of 29 years, had an interest in theatre, but never considered writing or directing.
“I’ve been interested in theater since I was about 9 years old,” Lord said. “Not in writing so much, but in performing. I’ve performed on the local and regional level, but I never expected to be writing several shows performed by community theatres.”
It may be the dog days of August, but nothing seems to be slowing down for the summer in Woodhaven.
The monthly meeting of the Woodhaven Residents’ Block Association drew a high-energy crowd to the Emanuel United Church of Christ on 91st Avenue Saturday morning.
Some children dread the end of the summer, as they know the school year and all the homework that comes with it are just around the corner.
Other children love walking with their friends in the hallways and tackling challenging schoolwork.
More than three years ago, dignitaries, civic leaders and even some South Queens residents gathered under a tarp in the lot next to what was then known as the South Queens Boys & Girls Club at 110-04 Atlantic Ave. in Richmond Hill to put shovels in the ground. On that chilly rainy April day, they promised to be back in several years to welcome the first children into a bigger, better club.
On Tuesday, three years, four months and a name change since the first brick was laid, and in noticeably different weather conditions, the job was done — for the most part.
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson claimed Friday night in Philadelphia that the team is not putting up the white flag in 2014 by releasing underperforming veteran outfielders Bobby Abreu and Chris Young and replacing them with Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Matt den Dekker. Alderson also announced that Wilmer Flores will be getting the bulk of playing time at shortstop for the rest of the season in place of Ruben Tejada, who has been in the organization’s doghouse for the last two years.
I can’t blame Alderson for wanting to take a good look at the three players who have logged a lot of time in the Mets’ minor league system. If they play well then he’ll have some homegrown inexpensive talent on the 2015 roster. If they can’t, they might as well be dropped from the 40-man roster once the season ends.
He has plenty of campaign funding, support from the Democratic Party and backing from many large unions, but does John Liu have what it takes to beat incumbent state Sen. Tony Avella (D-Bayside) for the 11th District seat?
Liu thinks so and in a recent interview at the Queens Chronicle office elaborated on why he should wrest the seat from Avella, who has held it since 2010. He cited party unity, his legislative and fiscal experience and his ability to work with others.
The line with an estimated 3,000 people began to form hours before the official starting time, extending from 98th Place, curving around to 57th Avenue, and making its way over to 99th Street in Corona on Saturday morning with nary a rock star in sight!
The excitement was over the annual backpack and school supplies giveaway organized by state Sen. Jose Peralta (D-East Elmhurst).
The NYPD last Wednesday arrested a second person in connection with the May 2013 shooting death of a 14-year-old South Jamaica girl on a city bus.
Shamel Capers, 16, of Brooklyn, has been charged with second-degree murder, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and first-degree reckless endangerment in the killing of D’aja Robinson.
