  •    A battle royal took place on East Hampton High’s soccer pitch Monday afternoon, a nonleague clash between the defending county Class A and B champions, and in the end it was East Hampton, the class A champ, that came out the winner, by a score of 1-0, early in the second overtime period.
        The hotly and well-contested game prompted the referees afterward to agree that these two teams were, aside from Brentwood, perhaps the best in the county.

  •    Saturday was the time for all good Montauk Rugby Club men to come to the aid of their side, and, for the most part, they did.

  •     The Montauk Fire Department’s entry in the Montauk slow-pitch softball league, a team that had on it some of the best players in the for-now-defunct Amagansett league — Andy Tuthill, Joe Sullivan, Rob Nicoletti, and Tommy Thorsen among them — sailed through the season undefeated, at 20-0.
        Alan Iscoe, the champions’ manager, said the undefeated season was “unprecedented . . . unbelievable.”

  •    Not long ago, I mentioned some ways in which the freedom of which we often prate is constrained; it’s not only limited by the certainties of death and taxes, but by myths we adore, hatreds that seethe, failures of the heart, and such.

  •    Kent Farrington, 32, of Wellington, Fla., became the fifth rider in the Hampton Classic Horse Show’s 38-year history to win back-to-back Grand Prix championships on Sunday.

  •    The East Hampton High School boys cross-country team was out in force for the Great Bonac 5K Labor Day morning, and did itself proud, its members taking six out of the top eight places.

  •    If attitude is any indicator, the East Hampton High School football team ought to be in for a good season, despite the fact that the roster of 26 is relatively small and the fact that there are only seven varsity returnees.

  •    Annette MacNiven, on her return from the recent world cross triathlon championships held at The Hague in the Netherlands, said that the swim warmup in the North Sea had proved to be far harder than the swim-bike-run event itself.

  •    I have undergone a month of guests, and though they’re closely related, and thus conjure good feelings, I’ll be happy to have Mary all to myself again.
        It is enough to be able to talk to her, about any old thing, though inevitably, because she’s more generous of herself than anyone I know, we’ve rarely had the time to “hang out,” as they say, in the past few weeks.

  •    The weather was fine for the opening day of the Hampton Classic Horse Show, a day devoted largely to Long Island riders of all ages, and the trainers were at the fences, looking concerned and tossing out bits of advice as their charges and their mounts wove around the courses.
        One proud and somewhat nervous father, Mike Lupica, the sportswriter, columnist, and author of young-adult books, was spotted early at the edge of the second hunter ring.
