SUFFOLK CLASS C FINALS  |  PANTHERS 9, TUCKERS 5

A team’s first trip to the red and white LaValle Stadium at Stony Brook University rarely ends well. Before Mount Sinai broke through in 2008, there were the beatdowns at the hands of Shoreham-Wading River.

John Glenn needed a loss against Mount Sinai before clinching a title of its own in 2010. That year, the Knights defeated Bayport-Blue Point for the Class C title.  (more…)

SUFFOLK COUNTY CLASS B FINALS, GAME 1 | TUCKERS 7, PANTHERS 0

Joe Tardif has a knack for amazing people with his athletic exploits. He did it again on Tuesday — with his pitching arm, his bat and his glove.

Tardif delivered a fine pitching performance, drove in four runs (three from a home run) and made one of the nicest fielding plays of the day as Mattituck took the first game of the Suffolk County Class B baseball finals, 7-0 over Babylon. The top-seeded Tuckers (22-1) can wrap up their fifth county championship in 13 years on Wednesday if they win the second game in Babylon. (more…)

HURRICANES 4, TUCKERS 3

The sweet taste of a championship season soured a bit for the Mattituck High School boys tennis team on Thursday.

Having already secured at least a share of the Suffolk County League VII championship, the Tuckers were on the verge of clinching the title outright. Then came controversy and a costly forfeit. (more…)

Written in multi-color marker on a dry erase board next to the basement bowling lanes at Polish Hall in Riverhead is the alley’s “300 Club.”

There’s just one entry: Pete Victoria 4/27/15.

Despite being heralded as Suffolk County’s first bowling alley and perhaps even one of the state’s oldest, it was believed that no one had ever rolled a perfect game at Polish Hall until Monday. The first person to accomplish the feat is Mr. Victoria, a 61-year-old plumber from Mattituck.  (more…)

RED DEVILS 20, TUCKERS 0 (5 INNINGS)

Looking for the secret to the undefeated Center Moriches High School softball team’s success? Mattituck can tell you, based on firsthand knowledge, what it is. Center Moriches doesn’t give its opponents much, if anything. Walks? Don’t count on them. Errors? Not likely with a defense that acts like a vacuum cleaner.

Anything opponents get off the Red Devils is probably going to have to be earned, and that’s a lot easier said than done. (more…)
