Pat McFarland had a career night. But even that wasn’t enough for the Southold High School boys basketball team on Friday the 13th.

In the first quarter of Friday’s game, McFarland nailed a three-point shot. A few moments later he hit another triple, all net, before swishing yet another trey in succession to the delight of the home fans.

One started to get a sense that it could be a special game for the Southold senior guard.

Life’s twists and turns can form some unforeseen developments. Lucas Grigonis knows full well.

Back during the 2004-05 high school boys basketball season, Grigonis was a senior playing for Southold. That season also happened to be the late Phil Reed’s first season in Southold as Jeff Ellis’ assistant coach.

It was one of the few things the First Settlers failed to accomplish during this memorable season.

A total surprise? Maybe not.

Gratifying? Absolutely.

The Southold High School baseball team leapt to the top of the Suffolk County League VIII standings by sweeping its first three games of the season, and excellent pitching had a lot to do with it. Just look at the scores of the First Settlers’ wins over Greenport: 10-1, 10-0 and 6-1.

The Southold High School boys basketball team might as well be standing in front of a mirror, looking at itself and asking, “Who am I?”

Life after Liam — as in the graduated Liam Walker — represents a big change for the First Settlers. They are in search of their new identity, and that’s not something that will happen overnight. It’s going to take time.  (more…)
