The Artists defeated the Writers 8-6 in the 65th Artists and Writers Softball Game played at East Hampton’s Herrick Park Saturday, thus evening the series in the post-modern era at 12-12-1.
Though the big news was that the Game, the work of whose participants over the years was featured in a Guild Hall show earlier this summer, raised an unprecedented $150,000 for its beneficiaries — the East Hampton Day Care Learning Center, the Retreat, the Phoenix House Adolescent Center in Wainscott, and East End Hospice.
Two East Hampton teams, B&R, John Romero and Luis Barrera’s entry, and Hampton Football Club-Bill Miller Associates, which was put together by Duvan Castro, did battle Monday night in the final of the eight-team Simon Gavron memorial men’s soccer tournament on Shelter Island.
And the winner was . . . B&R, by a score of 1-0, the result of a goal by Hector Marles, one of B&R’s defenders, who, near the end of the first half, slid in at the right post to convert Antonio Padilla’s chip from about 20 yards out.
