TUCKERS 2, MONARCHS 1 (OT)

Courtney Murphy seems to have a knack for being in the right place at the right time when she is on the soccer field. That was surely the case on Monday when the Mattituck left midfielder toe poked in the game-winning goal for a 2-1 overtime triumph over Bishop McGann-Mercy.

A long throw-in by Madison Kent trickled across the penalty area where Murphy managed to get the tip of her cleat to the ball before onrushing goalkeeper Juliana Cintron-Leonardo could get to it 3 minutes 31 seconds into overtime at Harold T. Murray Memorial Field in Riverhead. (more…)

PHANTOMS 32, PORTERS 0

The sun beat down on the Greenport/Southold/Mattituck Porters on Saturday afternoon. The Bayport-Blue Point Phantoms didn’t do a bad job of that, either.

Using a mix of physicality and a flowing passing game, fourth-seeded Bayport bulldozed the Porters, 32-0, in a rare afternoon game at Greenport High School’s Dorrie Jackson Memorial Field. Both the warm weather and Bayport’s balanced offense took its toll on the Porters, who saw quarterback Brendan Bateman throw for three first-half touchdowns and run for another. (more…)

As she walked from her car to the Mattituck High School athletic fields, Laurie Reilly held back tears.

She was headed to a once familiar track at the school, where her three grown daughters had run. But this time was different.

Ms. Reilly was one of more than 500 local residents who attended a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday evening at the school’s brand new track — an all-weather, polyflex running surface that has replaced the former cinder track that long stood at the school.  (more…)

The first full day of fall shined in its splendor. The sun was out, the air was crisp, it wasn’t too cold or too hot. It was one of those great weather days, and what better place for a golfer to be than out on a golf course?

“It doesn’t get any better than this,” Alex Poliwoda, a senior on the Greenport/Southold high school boys golf team, said while standing on the driving range at Island’s End Golf & Country Club in Greenport. (more…)

SHARKS 5, TUCKERS 2

The Mattituck High School girls tennis team finally met its match, and the Tuckers had to go outside of their league to do so.

Wins in three-setters at third and fourth singles by juniors Nicole Horn and Olivia Mann sent Eastport/South Manor on to a 5-2 non-league win over the Tuckers in Manorville on Monday. It was the first loss of the season for the Tuckers (6-1, 6-0 Suffolk County League VIII). (more…)
