  •    Casey Waleko, the East Hampton High School softball team’s pitcher, had an almost-perfect (no hits, one walk) game going through the first six and two-thirds innings of a crossover game here with Islip on May 2 when, in coach Lou Reale’s words, “the wheels came off.”
        Though the Bonackers were to commit four errors in the final two frames on their way to a 4-2 loss — all of the visitors’ runs were unearned — Reale said he was to blame.

  •     Though it was faced with the daunting task of winning out in order to make the playoffs following a 6-0 loss to Bayport-Blue Point on April 30, the East Hampton High School baseball team gave it its best shot, winning game two of the three-game series with the league leaders before yielding grudgingly, 13-11, in the finale.

  •    “We just didn’t make the plays and they did,” Lou Reale, East Hampton High’s softball coach, said Tuesday following Monday’s 2-1 loss at Rocky Point.
        The first time around, the Bonackers shut out the Eagles 2-0 as Casey Waleko, their pitcher, dominated. But this time Waleko was not quite as sharp, and she and her teammates could manage only two hits off her opposite number.

  •    Having snapped when I should have buttoned my lip, I thought the next day of ways I could make amends, how I could patch things up, as it were.
        I would begin by fixing the liquor cabinet door that’s remained awkwardly ajar lately. Step one in working my way back into her good graces.
        “It’s not perfect,” I began in alluding to my good intentions a half-hour later, “but it’s better than it was.”

  •     As was the case last year, the turnout at the Katy’s Courage 5K in Sag Harbor Saturday was huge — the finishers’ list totaled 1,005 — with reportedly every school in the area represented.

  •     The Long Island Rugby Club was said to be missing a few guys, but it is doubtful that the outcome of Saturday’s friendly match at East Hampton’s Herrick Park would have been any different had the Division I side come in at full strength.

  •    James Ignatowich’s success in regional United States Tennis Association junior tournaments has provided compelling proof of the Ross School Tennis Academy’s effectiveness.

  •     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.
