The pain of defeat was just too much for at least one inconsolable young person on the Mattituck side of the soccer field. Tuckers coach Will Hayes tried his best to comfort the distraught youngster, but the bawling continued.

It wasn’t one of Hayes’ players, but his 8-year-old son, Owen. Mattituck’s 4-1 loss to rival Center Moriches in a Suffolk County Class B semifinal Wednesday was just too much for him to take. READ

Midway through the opening half, Mattituck High School boys soccer coach Will Hayes looked down at the grass on the field.

“Gee, a penny,” he said, pocketing it.

Up until then Hayes did not need much luck — his team had rolled to a three-goal advantage over Greenport — but perhaps he could have used a little later Tuesday afternoon. The Tuckers lost senior goalkeeper James Jacobs to a sprained right ankle early in the second half of their 3-0 Suffolk County League VII victory. READ

It meant extending their regular season by two days and surviving an epic 19-inning game that took two days to complete, but the Mattituck Tuckers found the extra effort worthwhile.

The Suffolk County League VIII baseball game between Mattituck and host Southampton that started Wednesday was finally brought to an end Friday thanks in good part to Bryce Grathwohl. The sophomore pitched all six innings that were played Friday and came through with his first career home run in the 19th inning, bringing Mattituck a 5-4 triumph and a share of the league championship, half of which belongs to Southampton. Both teams finished the regular season 15-5 overall and in the league.

Perhaps under another system or at another time, freshmen Bryce Grathwohl and James Jacobs would have been bypassed and left sitting on the bench this season. But the Mattituck High School boys soccer team lost an astounding 19 seniors from last year’s New York State Class B champion squad. That presented opportunities for younger players like Grathwohl and Jacobs.  READ
