Following Saturday’s disappointing 20-19 defeat at the hands of the Danbury (Conn.) Rugby Club, Garth Wakeford, once his fellow Montauk R.C. players were gathered around, said the local side’s days might be numbered.
Danbury scored in the final minutes with Montauk playing a man down — Erik Brierley, its Olympic-hopeful fullback, who now lives in Narragansett, R.I., having been sent to the sidelines for pushing an opponent.
On Sept. 24, for the first time in 24 years, a cross-country meet was held at Cedar Point Park in Northwest, and everybody had been told to bring bug spray so that the runners and spectators wouldn’t be attacked by tick larvae or chiggers, as they are also referred to here.
As far as was known as of this writing, last Friday, nobody itched afterward, and the other good news was that Bonac’s boys team bageled Rocky Point 15-45, with nine Bonackers preceding Rocky Point’s first man over the finish line.
