Fall Bocce Season Opens for Friends of the North End


The Friends of the North End officially opened its annual Fall Bocce Tournament on Sunday as Commissioner Sam Viscione threw out the first polino signaling the start of the competition.

Last year’s championship team made up of Richie DeSantis, Bobby Carbone, Mario Antidormi and Angelo Di Girolamo continued their winning ways by defeating their opponent 2 games to 1 in a quest to repeat as champions.

The matches will continue into October at the Langone Park outdoor courts and will move indoors at the Steriti Rink during inclement weather. At the conclusion of the tournament an Awards Banquet will be held to honor the Fall season’s winners.
