A 2-1 win here over Forest Park on Sunday combined with Port Jefferson’s 3-2 loss to A.C. Glen Cove that day enabled East Hampton to climb into a first-place tie with Port Jeff at the top of the Long Island Soccer Football League’s top division at 12 points each.
    East Hampton, which had defeated Glen Cove 3-1 at the Ross School field on Oct. 5, found Forest Park, which has only won one game thus far, to be a tough opponent.

Thus far the fall has been a good one for East Hampton High’s teams.

As of Tuesday, two of them, boys soccer and girls volleyball, led their leagues — boys soccer with a 6-0-1 record in league play and 9-1-1 over all, and girls volleyball with a 6-0 league mark. The soccer team was ranked 9th among Long Island’s top 10 in Tuesday’s Newsday.

Two teams, girls tennis and boys cross-country, were runners-up, the girls with a 4-4 record (7-4 over all) and the boys at 2-0.

“There’s joy in Mudville,” John Geehreng said as he left the field after having manned the chains during the East Hampton-Mercy junior varsity football game here on Oct. 1.

Geehreng’s grandson, Johnny Walters, had that afternoon quarterbacked the young Bonackers to a 39-0 rout of the Riverhead Catholic school, much to everyone’s delight.

At Saturday’s second Andy’s Run in Sag Harbor, Robert Arcs, who two years ago became the steward of hundreds of trophies, medals, and plaques won by the late Andy Neidnig over the course of a lifelong long-distance running career, said that he hoped the turnout could be increased in the coming years.

“There were 120 last year, and only 88 this year — we need to juice it up,” said Arcs, who, along with other family members, is on the mend from having his vehicle recently “rear-ended by a pickup truck on North Sea Road.”

Though it recently had a 30-something win streak snapped, the East Hampton Football Club, which shut out the Mineola Portuguese at the Ross School Sunday 3-0, has made it clear that it belongs in the Long Island Soccer Football League’s top division, to which it ascended following an undefeated inaugural season in the L.I.S.F.L.’s third division.

While Ellen Cooper has lost 12 seniors from last year’s undefeated league-champion team, she has a number of starters back, including Megan Barnett, Dawn Da Costa Faro, Jennifer Vish, Andrea Wyche, Diana Lys, Danielle Ficeto, and Bridget McSweeney, as well as two juniors up from the jayvee, Michelle Hammer and Shana Menu, and five sophomores — Nicole Ficeto, Renee Grau, Paula Hatch, Rebecca Libath, and Carolina Vargas. . . . Miller Place edged East Hampton in the county Class B championship game here last year, in a shootout.

The revived Montauk Rugby Club trounced its rivals from Brooklyn at East Hampton’s Herrick Park Saturday by a score of 48-10, a lopsided win that obviously delighted those, several of them among the local side’s elder statesmen, who had suffered a 35-19 defeat at Brooklyn’s hands here last year.

(That was then, however, when Montauk had trouble fielding a complement of 15, sometimes suiting up players in their 40s and 50s, and this is now, when coaches do their best to get the young turks who show up playing time.)

Led by its boys soccer team, East Hampton High School enjoyed a largely joyous homecoming week that included victories by its girls swimming, girls volleyball, girls tennis, and boys volleyball teams.

The soccer game, which the Bonackers won 3-0, was historic inasmuch as it, rather than football (East Hampton has no varsity this season), served as the main homecoming attraction under the lights Saturday night.

East Hampton High School will celebrate this weekend, and it will mark the first homecoming where soccer, not football, will be the headliner.

East Hampton High’s boys soccer team looked mighty good in its league opener here with Bayport-Blue Point last Thursday, besieging the Phantoms’ goalie from the get-go on the way to a 6-1 win.

Auguring very well for the Bonackers was the fact that six different players scored, not just the usual suspects, namely Nick West (who did have one) and Esteban Valverde.

Monday was a good afternoon for East Hampton High’s teams.
