After witnessing a first half in which it became apparent that things weren’t going to be nearly as easy for his Greenport/Southold/Mattituck football team as they might be, coach Jack Martilotta turned to a sideline observer and shook his head. With each week, he said, he ages 10 years.

Such is the stressful life of a coach.

Greenport/Southold/Mattituck put a smiley face on its homecoming football game Friday night.

Tyrus Smiley had a big smile on his face, and for good reason. The Greenport senior had a lot to smile about, scoring three touchdowns — two on first-quarter kickoff returns — and turning in one of the greatest individual performances in the team’s modern history. READ

Call it the Amityville horror. It’s Friday the 13th, after all.

Amityville arrived at Greenport High School’s Dorrie Jackson Memorial Field with a 1-4 record. But if any high school football team proves that win-loss records can be misleading, it’s Amityville.
