Outnumbered, outweighed, and outplayed, the East Hampton High School football team took a drubbing in its home opener Saturday, losing 42-7 to Kings Park, which in turn had been routed the week before by Islip.
And “drubbing” is not overstating the case: Three Bonackers went down that day, Ryan Joudeh, a running back, by way of a sprained ankle, and two — Dan Barros, arguably the team’s best defender, and Cortland Heneveld, its sophomore quarterback — by way of concussions.
At last, Diane O’Donnell thinks she’s got a girls cross-country team able to make some noise, a team headed by a hard-working senior, Ashley West, and a fleet freshman, Dana Cebulski.
But it takes more than two to score in cross-country. You need a pack of goers as well, and O’Donnell thinks she has that in Jen DiSunno, Kerry Kaestner, Emma Newburger, and Brittany Rivkind, who all ran 25-something in the Peconic Invitational meet at Southampton’s Red Creek Park last Thursday.
