Los Revuelos created a commotion (as the name implies) at Sportime’s indoor soccer finals Saturday night in Amagansett, capping the evening’s four games with a 4-0 rout of Liga S.B. in the men’s open contest.

“They’re young and they’re quick,” Ramon Naula, who oversees the leagues, said following the surprisingly easy victory.

Jose Nugra broke the ice in the opening minutes with a hard shot high into the upper left corner of Liga S.B.’s cage, leaving its goalie, Patricio Cortes, flat-footed.

The East Hampton High School boys track team, thanks in part to T.J. Paradiso and Erik Engstrom’s school-record performances in the 1,000-meter and 3,200-meter races, finished third among the eight teams vying in the League V meet at Suffolk Community College-Brentwood Sunday night.

Forfeits continued to hamper the East Hampton High School wrestling team this past week, but the heavier half of the lineup by the same token continued to impress.

At the Port Jefferson invitational tournament Saturday, Steve Tseperkas, Bonac’s coach, for the first time, he thought, in more than a decade, had three competitors — Colton Kalbacher, at 152 pounds, Axel Alanis, at 195, and Josh King, at 285 — make the finals.

Richie Daunt’s right thumb and hand, injured a little over a year ago in a Pure Breed boxing tournament in the Bronx during a bout he won — an injury that kept him out of last winter’s Golden Gloves — is healed now, and the 141-pounder from Montauk is ready to go.

“I’ll either be fighting a Golden Gloves match at the B.B. King Blues Club in Times Square on Jan. 28 or on the 30th,” he said during a conversation this week at The Star. “They don’t tell you when you’re fighting until a week before.”

Forced to forfeit six matches before the meet here with Miller Place began on Jan. 14, the East Hampton High School wrestling team was beaten before it began.

The good news was that of the nine matches contested — Miller Place won the meet 62-12 — Steve Tseperkas’s charges took four of them, beginning with Luciano Escobar’s 6-1 decision at 170 pounds.

Colton Kalbacher, who had suffered a pin at the hands of Miller Place’s Joe Bartolatto in a dual meet here on Jan. 14, got even with a decisive 14-7 decision on his way to winning the 152-pound division at a high-powered tournament at Mattituck High School Saturday.

Seeded fourth, Kalbacher, who recently was ranked third countywide in his weight class, decisioned the top seed, Rocky Point’s Dylan Zabarra, 5-3 in a semifinal before besting Bartolatto for the championship.

The East Hampton High School boys basketball team made it four in a row here Saturday morning, upending Shoreham-Wading River 58-48, thus handing the Wildcats their first league loss and tightening the League VI race.

The young Bonackers — there are no senior starters on Bill McKee’s squad — last Thursday routed Bayport-Blue Point, which had not had a league loss until then.

Talk about burning the nets: East Hampton High’s three guards, Kyle McKee, Brandon Kennedy-Gay, and Kevin Fee, put on a show at Bonac’s gym last Thursday night, making good on 17 of the 26 shots they took from beyond the 3-point arc in a 76-51 rout of Bayport-Blue Point, which had come into the game undefeated.

The East Hampton High School boys swimming team won two meets this week, improving its league mark to 2-1.

A meet at the Y.M.C.A. East Hampton RECenter on Jan. 13 with North Babylon was a walkover. The visitors, whose team had reportedly been depleted by illness, brought only a half dozen swimmers. Craig Brierley, East Hampton’s coach, gave the score as 62-56, but he was generous in doing so, “exhibitioning” his entrants in a number of events.

Things remain in full swing at the Ross School’s Tennis Academy, which this week welcomed Germany’s top-ranked 16-and-under player, Jonas Erdmann, said farewell for five weeks to Frank Ackley, a Springs resident who finished the year as the East’s top-ranked player in the 65s, and continued to celebrate with two of its pros, Hleb Maslau and Simona Weymar, their national indoor mixed doubles championship in Flushing Meadows over Christmas week.

Despite the absence of two starters, who, according to East Hampton High’s wrestling coach, Steve Tseperkas, had quit the team, the Bonackers bested Amityville 42-27 on the mats here on Jan. 7.

While he was reared in Southampton, Chris Pike, a baseball pitcher who was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays last June, has East Hampton ties inasmuch as his late grandfather, Carl Johanson, was for many years an administrator and football and basketball coach in the East Hampton School District.

That and the fact that he played five summers as a teenager for Kevin Brophy’s South Fork Sharks, a traveling baseball team that was based in East Hampton, practically makes him a local son.

The second meeting of the Bridgehampton High School Killer Bees and the Pierson Whalers, in Sag Harbor Saturday afternoon, proved to be far more arresting than the first.

The Bees, who look as if they’ve got a team that could well make that school’s first trip to Glens Falls in 16 years, routed the Whalers 77-50 in a league-opener at the Bee Hive in mid-December, though, on Pierson’s court, whose stands were packed with fans, it was a different story.

Young softball and baseball players will be taught the fundamentals of hitting, fielding, pitching, and base-running in Saturday afternoon clinics at East Hampton High School’s gymnasium beginning this week and ending March 7.

The proceeds (the clinics, to be taught by the varsity softball coaching staff and players, will cost $100 for six and $20 per at the door) will help underwrite the high school softball team’s spring training trip to Disney World in Orlando, Fla., in April.
