If Matt Maloney has a home away from home, it just might be the lacrosse field at East Hampton High School. He had, after all, spent six years coaching girls lacrosse on that field turf until taking over as the Mattituck/Greenport/Southold coach three years ago.

For the first time since he last coached East Hampton/Bridgehampton/Pierson, Maloney returned to that East Hampton field for a game Friday, this time as an opposing coach, and it conjured up plenty of memories.

The event, a series of four high school girls lacrosse games at Rocky Point High School, was called Rumble for a Cure, a fundraiser in the fight against breast cancer. It could have been called Freeze for a Cure, given the bone-chilling weather conditions, biting wind and all.

Of course, that didn’t stop Mattituck/Greenport/Southold coach Matt Maloney, whose team played in the second of those games Saturday afternoon, from adhering to his custom of wearing shorts. “No, you got to go with shorts every game,” he said.

In its own way, it was a work of art. Among other things, the Mattituck/Greenport/Southold high school girls lacrosse team has shown it can draw.

And that’s no small thing. Draw control is huge. It means possessions, and possessions can translate into goals.

Navigating the Suffolk County Class C girls lacrosse playoffs this year is like walking through a minefield. One misstep and — ka-boom!

Just look at that field: Bayport-Blue Point. Mount Sinai. Shoreham-Wading River. Mattituck/Greenport/Southold. Babylon.

Mattituck/Greenport/Southold coach Matt Maloney was understandably a little uneasy about starting the high school girls lacrosse season with only 14 field players, among them a less than grand total of four defenders.

But that foursome — a senior, a junior and two sophomores — has been staunch. Early on, a nickname was born: the “Core Four.”

Seeing is believing. What the Shoreham-Wading River Wildcats saw through the raindrops on Saturday made them true believers — in themselves.

If the Wildcats were suffering from lagging self-confidence, they certainly received a significant boost that may be worth even more than the power-rating points they earned with their 11-7 victory over Mattituck/Greenport/Southold in a girls lacrosse game at Thomas Cutinella Memorial Field in Shoreham.

TUCKERS 20, CLIPPERS 11

Trish Brisotti and Colby Prokop have been on this rather remarkable journey together for a while now. They began playing lacrosse together since they were in third grade. They both made the Mattituck/Greenport/Southold high school varsity team four years ago as freshmen. There they were on Friday, standing together during a halftime ceremony, being recognized as the Tuckers’ only two seniors on senior day.

Brisotti and Prokop have seen a lot during their time with the Tuckers — the good, the bad and the ugly, as they say. They saw some of the lean years (the Tuckers went 1-13 and 5-11 during their freshman and sophomore seasons). They saw a major breakthrough last year when the Tuckers posted their first wining record (9-7) and reached the playoffs for the first time.

And now this. The Tuckers, in their sixth year of varsity play, are already assured of another winning season and a place in the playoffs. Brisotti and Prokop had to feel good about that as they took their places not far from their younger teammates, who lined up during the halftime presentation on the field in Cutchogue.
