  •    The East Hampton High School boys soccer team repeated as the League VI champion here Saturday, routing Amityville, the only team that had beaten it during the regular season, by a score of 4-1.
        The visitors’ goal, by way of a penalty kick resulting from an inadvertent hands ball in the penalty box, came late in the game, long after everything had been decided.

  •    Josh Brussell, who coaches East Hampton High’s boys volleyball team, said following his team’s sweep of Westhampton Beach here Friday that it’s likely the Bonackers will have a home playoff match.
        Kathy McGeehan, the girls’ coach, who was helping to keep score that day, said she’s hoping for a first-round home playoff match too.
        “We know how to solve John Glenn,” McGeehan said, “but we’ve yet to actually do it. It has to do with taking care of the ball.”

  •    The Montauk Rugby Club finished the regular season here Saturday with a 46-5 thumping of Bayonne, N.J., thus winding up in second place in the Empire Geographical Union with a 6-1 record.
        Now the Sharks must wait until early May to find out whether they’ll be one of the two sides from the Northeast and New England regions to advance to U.S.A. Rugby’s Division II Sweet Sixteen.

  •    After bowling a perfect game, the first in her life — and she has been bowling since the age of 7 — the 42-year-old Dot Grossman dropped to one knee and cried.
        Asked if he’d gotten “the shot,” her husband, Ian, who is the East Hampton Bowl’s general manager, and who watched the singular perfect game unfold, said he had not, though it would have been hard to do, he added, “because everyone ran to her and enveloped her in hugs.”

  • Standings posted on Section XI’s Web site Tuesday morning showed that East Hampton High School’s boys soccer team was in first place in League VI with a 7-1-0 record, and that girls volleyball, boys volleyball, and girls swimming were in runner-up spots.
        Moreover, boys and girls cross-country were each in third place in their leagues, golf was fourth, girls tennis was fifth, field hockey was eighth among 11 teams in Division III, and girls soccer was last in League V.

  •     The Montauk Rugby Club, by virtue of a 54-27 rout of Syracuse at East Hampton’s Herrick Park Saturday, remains one of the 12-member Empire Geographical Union’s top sides, with a playoff spot in the spring guaranteed.

  •     While perhaps not a joy forever, Saturday’s high school football game here was, for Bonac fans, a thing of beauty.
        On that beautiful day, the Bonackers, playing on all cylinders, routed Port Jefferson 28-6, with all of the scoring occurring in the first half.
        The win improved East Hampton to 2-4 in the Conference IV standings. As of Monday, Bill Barbour’s team was in seventh place among the conference’s 14 teams, with 103.320 power points. The top eight are to go to the playoffs.

  • October 8, 1987
        An unexpectedly tough Southampton High School football team came close to rocking East Hampton in Sunday’s stormy weather, but thanks to an early Bonac score, a defense that rose to the occasion, costly Mariner miscues, and an untried place-kicker, East Hampton repossessed the handsome silver Hampton Cup, 7-6, to continue undefeated.
