Greenport Village partnered with the Town of Oyster Bay for “Pond Hockey Friendship Games” at Mitchell Park Saturday night.

Three age groups faced off against each other in part one of the games. Part two will be held in Oyster Bay on Feb. 15.

“Building on the popularity of ice hockey games being played outside, the two-day event will allow hockey players ages 8-13 to take to the ice for a series of friendly youth hockey contests,” Oyster Bay Supervisor John Venditto said in a press release.

Greenport’s Mayor David Nyce agreed.

“This unique event will give its young participants the feel for playing travel hockey in a friendly and enjoyable manner while still staying on Long Island,” he said. “ We are hoping that this exciting concept will ultimately become an annual event and residents from both the Village of Greenport and the Town of Oyster Bay come out to support the youngsters.”

It was Porter Purple Day in Greenport.

But it was the red of Southold that prevailed in the end.

The Southold boys basketball team defeated the host Porters, 57-55, Saturday afternoon in a League VIII matchup. The First Settlers evened their league record at 5-5 while dropping the Porters to 4-5. It was the second meeting between the schools after Greenport won an early December matchup, 82-70.

Fans were encouraged to wear purple to the game to show their support for the home team. Athletic Director Jim Caliendo designated it as Porter Purple Day.

Liam Walker delivered the game-winning basket with a layup in the final second. He finished with 15 points in the game and was tied for the team-high with Alex Poliwoda.

Galvin Dibble led all scorers for Greenport with 19.

Shayne Johnson scored 13 and Kenji Fujita added 10 for Southold. Timmy Stevens scored 11 for Greenport.

Greenport held an eight-point halftime lead, but the First Settlers bounced back with a big third quarter to tie the game heading into the fourth quarter.
