  • But what to say? Ah, it’s Thanksgiving, time to give thanks for Kitty’s torte, which I swear will be the death of me. The ingredients are not arcane, store-bought devil’s food cake mix, a box of Nilla wafers, two bags of walnuts, light brown sugar, butter, plenty of that, and whipped cream, yielding a crunchiness, creami­ness, sweetness, and softness that taken all together are nonpareil.
  • A 35-yard rocketed knee-high shot by Luis Barrera early in the second half of Sunday’s Suffolk Men’s Soccer League showdown between Barrera’s team, Hampton United, and Charruas 1950, a perennial rival from Central Islip, put the locals atop the league’s 10-team first division once again with two more games left in the fall half of the season.
  • Two of the captains of East Hampton High School’s league-champion girls swimming team, Madison Jones and Lucy Emptage, were the focus of attention at the high school on Nov. 14.
  • When Aziza El, the 5-foot-9-inch middle hitter, went down with a rolled ankle near the end of Friday’s girls volleyball practice session at Pierson High School, Donna Fischer, Pierson-Bridgehampton’s coach, rolled her eyes, as if to say, “Oh no.”
  • It would be about now that the football season would be winding up, assuming we had a football team.
  • The Montauk Rugby Club, with an impressive 60-29 rout of the Suffolk R.C. at East Hampton’s Herrick Park Saturday, finished the Empire Geographical Union’s fall Division III season at 3-5, though had the team been at full strength throughout the campaign, Rich Brierley, the Sharks’ coach, agreed that it could have gone undefeated.
  • The fall indoor season wound up at the Sportime Arena in Amagansett Saturday night with victories by Liga Sayausi in the open men’s final, by La Tri in the over-38 men’s final, and by A.D.N. in the open women’s championship game.
  • In recent postseason action, the East Hampton High School boys cross-country team, the county Class B champion, followed form by placing ninth last weekend at the state meet.
  • The Dock Race, revived these past few years by George Watson’s son, Chris, a fitting warm-up for the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot, drew a large multigenerational crowd of runners, cyclists, skateboarders, baby strollers, walkers, and dogs to the starting line at the Montauk Post Office Sunday morning.
  • The Montauk rugby team continued to prove it can win at home (though rarely away) by defeating Rockaway, a team that had bested the Sharks earlier in the season, by a score of 25-15 here at Herrick Park on Saturday.
