  •     A win over Harborfields here Friday would apparently have assured the East Hampton High School girls lacrosse team of a home game in the opening round of the playoffs, but it was not to be, as the Tornadoes wound up on the long end of a 9-5 score.
        Afterward, Matt Maloney, East Hampton’s coach, agreed that the loss “wasn’t the end of the world, though it would have been nice to win. . . . We need a couple more wins, but to be two games above .500 with four games to go is a good place to be.”

  •     East Hampton High’s baseball team, as the result of a 6-0 loss here to league-leading Bayport-Blue Point Monday, will have to win all five of its remaining games in order to make the playoffs.
        The Bonackers were able to take the last of a three-game series with Shoreham-Wading River, winning 14-5 on Friday.

  •     Following Saturday’s 24-22 loss in a friendly match with the White Plains Rugby Football Club, Rich Brierley, who coaches the Montauk R.F.C., said, looking ahead to the regional Sweet 16 tournament in Pittsburgh, that he liked Montauk’s chances.

  •     Having returned from a singular spring training trip to Orlando, Fla., where it had won all eight of its scrimmages, the East Hampton High School softball team flirted with disaster in a crossover game here on April 18 with Eastport-South Manor, but Kathryn Hess, the senior catcher and cleanup hitter, saved the day.
        As a result of Hess’s two-out single to right field in the bottom of the seventh inning, a hit that scored Casey Waleko from second base, the Bonackers went home happy on the long end of a 4-3 score.

  •     When Georgie wrote on her twin sister’s wedding poster last weekend that “a life without love is a life half-lived,” I asked who had said that, figuring the reply would be Ovid, or Dante, or Calvin Coolidge, but her smiling answer was that the quote had come from the movie “Strictly Ballroom.”

  •     The East Hampton Coaches Association’s coffers benefited to the tune of $10,000 from a golf outing Saturday at the South Fork Country Club in Amagansett.
        Rain had been forecast, but it was, wonderful to tell, a sunny day, and spirits were bright.
        “The last time here [two years ago], I hit a horse,” Lou Reale, East Hampton High’s softball coach, said before the golf cart brigade of foursomes set out.

  •     The East Hampton High School boys and girls track teams lost to their Amityville peers this past week, though there were good things to say even though the margins of victory were considerable.
        “We were holding our own until the scores from the throwers and jumpers came in,” said the girls’ coach, Diane O’Donnell. “Their girl who won the shot-put just stood there and tossed it 34 feet.”

  •     Ed Bahns, whose baseball team was 5-6 as of Tuesday morning, having dropped all three games in a series with Mount Sinai, by scores of 9-1, 11-1, and 4-1, professed some concern Friday when asked about the team’s chances of making the playoffs.
