  • In a heartbreaking loss for East Hampton, the high school boys soccer team fell 4-2 to Greece-Athena in the Class A championship game in Middletown, N.Y., on Sunday.
  • The East Hampton High School boys soccer team took the penultimate step to a first-ever state final appearance in the sport at Middletown High School Saturday morning, gliding by Jamesville-DeWitt, a Syracuse-area team, 3-0.

    The game was played in brisk, sunny weather on a magnificent track-encircled turf field — apparently the result of a generous New York State grant — with a Jumbotron and large stands in which about 200 fans, half of whom had embarked at 4 that morning in two spectator buses, cheered the team on.

  • After interviewing Cory Lillie and Kyle Solomon about the soon-to-be East End Sharks, a nascent high school ice hockey team that ought to be fun to write about this winter and in winters to come, I went onto the last court open to play that remained, the hard court, to practice my serve, which had been tweaked the day before at an adult clinic at the East Hampton Indoor Club.

  • Erik Engstrom, according to his coach, Kevin Barry, “ran his best race of the season” at the Federation cross-country championships in Wappingers Falls Saturday.

    Engstrom, who’s a junior and the hardest-working runner Barry’s ever coached, ran the 5K Bowdoin Park course in 16 minutes and 43.2 seconds, a personal record, which was good enough for a 47th place finish among the 252 entrants from schools all over New York State.

  • First East Hampton-based travel hockey team since the 1940s is being formed at the Buckskill Winter Club.
  • Election night for us was the night of the living dread, and on the morrow (even our night sweats have achieved a certain simultaneity) we awoke to baleful reality in a bed next to which a George McGovern poster hangs.

    Frankly, and naively, I had thought ideas were pivotal when it came to electoral politics, but, as we’ve seen, it mainly comes down to money and the sound bites money — no matter the party — buys.

  • The East Hampton High School boys soccer team, which clearly was the better of the two playing in the Class A Long Island championship game at Dowling’s sports complex Sunday, was because of South Side’s acrobatic goalie kept on tenterhooks through the first hour and 45 minutes of play until a top-spun corner kick by Nick West rocketed into the nets off a Cyclone defender, treating East Hampton, with five minutes remaining in the second O.T., to a well-earned 2-1 victory and, consequently, a first-time ever berth in the New York State Final Four this weekend.

  • The East Hampton High School boys soccer team on Friday won the county Class A championship — the third time it has done so in the past four years — defeating Comsewogue 1-0 thanks to Camillo Godoy’s goal in the 54th minute.

    The weather conditions at the Dowling sports complex in Brookhaven could hardly have been worse. Rain, sometimes in sheets — hail, some said — fell periodically throughout the game, slickening the turf to the point where it was hard, indeed, to control the ball.

  • In postseason action this past week:

    Erik Engstrom, an East Hampton High School junior, as a result of his showing in the New York State cross-country meet, was picked as one of the four runners who are to represent Suffolk in the Federation meet Saturday in Wappingers Falls.

    Carly Drew, a junior, in placing third in the county meet’s 100-yard butterfly race at Suffolk Community College-Brentwood Saturday qualified to compete in the state meet, which is to be held at Ithaca College over the Nov. 21-22 weekend.

  • “It’s the first year that Holly [Li] and I have felt that the energy’s there — and it’s a nice feeling,” Vinicius Carmo said the other day of the four-year-old Ross School Tennis Academy, which now has 17 tennis-playing enrollees, “more than I thought we would have by this time when we began. Our goal was to have 16 full-time students by our fifth year.”
