The US Men’s U19 National Team will play a team of Long Island All Star Team in an exhibition game at Mitchell Field Athletic Complex in Uniondale at 7 P.M.

The game, being run by for the Love of the Game club program, is to help the US team practice and get prepared to compete in the World Championships against 32 other countries in Turku, Finland this July.

Tickets purchased at the door are $10 each. All proceeds benefit The U.S. Men’s Under-19 team and Lax4All.

Last summer, Garden City residents Stephen Jahelka, who attended Garden City High School and Sean Mahon from Chaminade, were selected to the 23- man US roster after completing a four-day tryout, which featured 123 tryout candidates. Both Sean and Stephen are currently students at Harvard University.

Some of the Long Island All Stars that will play against the US team include two of the standouts of Garden City’s undefeated team, attackman Devin Dwyer (Harvard) and goalie Dan Marino (Virginia); Garden City grads Brian Fischer (Harvard), JP Burnside (Penn State) and Tom Gordon (Johns Hopkins); and Chaminade grads Matt Clarkson (Colgate) and Shane Thornton (Yale).
