  • A 2-1 win here over Forest Park on Sunday combined with Port Jefferson’s 3-2 loss to A.C. Glen Cove that day enabled East Hampton to climb into a first-place tie with Port Jeff at the top of the Long Island Soccer Football League’s top division at 12 points each.
        East Hampton, which had defeated Glen Cove 3-1 at the Ross School field on Oct. 5, found Forest Park, which has only won one game thus far, to be a tough opponent.

  • The East Hampton High School boys cross-country team was to have run for the league championship at Sunken Meadow State Park Tuesday in a meet in which all seven of League VI’s schools were entered.

  • The East Hampton High School girls volleyball team, which had been riding high with a 6-0 record in league play, suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of its perennial rival, Westhampton Beach, here on Oct. 7.

  • The East Hampton High School boys soccer team beat Elwood-John Glenn to clinch fourth consecutive league title.
  • Were victory and defeat becoming the imposters they are, I wondered the other morning as I told Mary how I’d perhaps arrived at long last at the threshold of wisdom, to wit, that being calm was the key to winning tennis, if not to life itself.

    “That’s why meditation’s so big, why yoga’s so big — everyone wants to be calm — mental toughness is simply to be calm,” I said, recalling that I had been cast out of the only meditation session I’d ever attended because I couldn’t sit still.

  • The Montauk Rugby Club and the East Hampton Football Club won games this past weekend, to continue undefeated at the top of the league in rugby’s case, and to continue in the runner-up spot in the case of the men’s soccer team.

  • At Saturday’s second Andy’s Run in Sag Harbor, Robert Arcs, who two years ago became the steward of hundreds of trophies, medals, and plaques won by the late Andy Neidnig over the course of a lifelong long-distance running career, said that he hoped the turnout could be increased in the coming years.

    “There were 120 last year, and only 88 this year — we need to juice it up,” said Arcs, who, along with other family members, is on the mend from having his vehicle recently “rear-ended by a pickup truck on North Sea Road.”

  • “There’s joy in Mudville,” John Geehreng said as he left the field after having manned the chains during the East Hampton-Mercy junior varsity football game here on Oct. 1.

    Geehreng’s grandson, Johnny Walters, had that afternoon quarterbacked the young Bonackers to a 39-0 rout of the Riverhead Catholic school, much to everyone’s delight.

  • Thus far the fall has been a good one for East Hampton High’s teams.

    As of Tuesday, two of them, boys soccer and girls volleyball, led their leagues — boys soccer with a 6-0-1 record in league play and 9-1-1 over all, and girls volleyball with a 6-0 league mark. The soccer team was ranked 9th among Long Island’s top 10 in Tuesday’s Newsday.

    Two teams, girls tennis and boys cross-country, were runners-up, the girls with a 4-4 record (7-4 over all) and the boys at 2-0.

  • “Let it rain!” I said to the guys who were putting up new seamless gutters whose downspouts and discharge pipes were arranged under our deck in such a way as to inspire hope that the annoyance of periodic basement floods would once and for all be ended.

    Haz llover! Let it rain! Open the floodgates of heaven. Well, perhaps not quite so wide, but I do want to see if the new system works, if we’re on our way to, if not bone-dryness, less dankness. Yes, less dankness, fewer spiders, less mold, a little less of the entropy against which we are struggling.
