The Mattituck High School girls volleyball team knows there’s no place like home. So the Tuckers kept telling themselves that, clicked their heels together and their wish appears to have come true.

By wrapping up its regular season Monday night with a 25-15, 25-16, 25-11 road win over Hampton Bays, Mattituck secured second place in Suffolk County League VII. But, more importantly, the Tuckers also earned what coach Frank Massa believes will be a home Suffolk Class B playoff match against Bayport-Blue Point on Nov. 2. READ

The drought ended, the dam burst and a torrent of goals flooded in.

Who would have thought?

Perhaps not even the players on the Greenport/Southold high school field hockey team themselves could have foreseen the offensive output they registered against Hampton Bays on Thursday. READ

It looks like it’s going to get crowded at the top of the Suffolk County League VIII boys tennis standings.

Entering Thursday’s matches, Rocky Point, Southold/Greenport and Southampton all had two league losses next to their names. Each of those teams split matches against each other and, with the regular season winding down, it looks almost certain that the league championship will be divided three ways. READ

On a rough night when positives were hard to find for the Greenport/Southold/Mattituck high school football team, here was one: The scoreboard at Hampton Bays High School wasn’t functioning.

If it had been, it would have shown the Porters on the short end of a 40-0 blowout when all was said and done. READ

BAYMEN 16, CLIPPERS 4 (5 INNINGS)

Softball is king at Hampton Bays High School, where both the tradition of winning and the talent pool are deep.

So, the result of Southold/Greenport’s game in Hampton Bays on Friday was hardly surprising. Leadoff hitter Mackenzie Taylor singled, tripled, doubled and walked, and Rebecca Harris drove in three runs as Hampton Bays rolled, 16-4, in five innings. The game was halted after 1 hour 16 minutes because of the mercy rule.

BAYMEN 86 1/2, CLIPPERS 63 1/2

The coach of the Greenport/Southold high school girls track and field team — the team without a home — must have felt truly at home. And why not? Mike Gunther lives a little more than a long discus throw away from Hampton Bays High School. Not only that, but he is a former assistant coach for the Baymen’s boys and girls teams.

Gunther’s influence may be the only thing the two track programs share in common. Hampton Bays has a beautiful, bright, all-weather track surrounding field turf, with a new scoreboard to go with it; the Clippers practice on a dirt track at Greenport High School and run all their meets on the road. Hampton Bays has an established program; the Clippers are in only their second year since the re-introduction of the sport in Greenport.

The Clippers are the ultimate underdogs. They raised their roster size from 13 in 2014 to 25, but 13 of their current athletes are in their first year in track. Nonetheless, the Clippers (2-3, 2-2 Suffolk County League VIII) have made strides. They have already improved upon their 1-5 record of last year with wins over The Ross School and Wyandanch. (more…)
