About Monday’s Games

East Hampton High’s girls tennis and girls volleyball teams lost matches they played Monday — girls tennis, by a score of 4-3, to Shoreham-Wading River, with which it had been vying for second place in league play, and girls volleyball, by 3-2, to Mattituck, a nonleague opponent. Undefeated in league play, the Tuckers have lost only to Eastport-South Manor thus far this fall.

The field hockey team, thanks to a goal near the end of the game by Emma McGrory, an eighth grader, defeated Pierson 1-0 — the second time this season that the Bonackers have defeated the Whalers. The win evened East Hampton’s record at 5-5.

In tennis, Eve Iulo and Eve Marsden had to retire from their matches at second and third singles, in the first set in each case. East Hampton lost all four singles matches, and won all three of the doubles matchups.

The girls volleyball game went the full five, with East Hampton winning the first set 25-17, losing the second 25-22, winning the third 25-16, losing the fourth by a like score, and losing the all-important fifth 25-21.
