Despite having a couple of hands, as it were, tied behind its back, the East Hampton High School girls lacrosse team prevailed 13-12 in an important game with Comsewogue here Friday, keeping Ryan Mahoney’s charges on track to make the Class B playoffs.
The top eight Bs are to go, and, as of Monday morning, East Hampton was in sixth place among them, behind Eastport-South Manor, Sayville, Huntington, Miller Place, and Westhampton Beach, and ahead of Rocky Point, Islip, and Kings Park.
Not suprisingly, the East Hampton High School baseball team was swept in its most recent series by Bayport-Blue Point, the defending state Class A champion.
“They’re the state champs for a reason,” Mike Ritsi, East Hampton’s coach, said following the three lopsided losses. “They do everything we want to do, though we’re not there yet.”
