Hurricane Dorian missed Greenport, but another powerful force didn’t. It hit the small North Fork village hard, packing one heck of a punch.

Southampton/Bridgehampton/Pierson delivered a wallop on Greenport/Southold/Mattituck in the season-opening game for both Suffolk County Division IV football teams Friday night.

Everything that could go right went right for Southampton. Everything that could go wrong went wrong for Greenport. READ

Kaitlin Daniels has seen disturbing signs that the number of field hockey players on Long Island has been declining in recent years. However, the Greenport/Southold high school coach found encouragement this past spring when she saw healthy turnouts for pickup games. That prompted her to approach Greenport athletic director Chris Golden and suggest the time was right for the school to bring a junior varsity team back to the fall lineup.

And so it is. For the first time in about five years, Greenport will field a JV team, coached by Mary Kathryn Baker. That’s a positive for the immediate future. READ

As Jack Martilotta sees it, his Greenport/Southold/Mattituck football team missed reaching the playoffs last year by a measly nine seconds.

Joe Silvestro has never played for a county champion Southold High School boys soccer team. Not that he didn’t come close — several times.

Last year, Southold lost to Greenport in the Suffolk County Class C final, 1-0. And both years prior to that, the First Settlers fell to Pierson/Bridgehampton, both by 1-0 scores.

“It’s always like a heartbreaker at the end,” said Silvestro, a four-year varsity player who played in all three of those finals.

Silvestro wants to change that. READ

Within seconds, aggravation turned into disbelief and then joy.

Jack Martilotta might have been more annoyed than anything else when he saw where the ball landed the first time his Greenport/Southold/Mattituck football team executed a kickoff during this current training camp. READ

Mattituck/Southold/Greenport is back.

The girls soccer team formed to represent the three North Fork high schools had great success last year, rebounding dramatically from an 0-6 start to bag what had initially seemed an unlikely Suffolk County Class B championship in its inaugural season. Although 11 seniors from that team have moved on, MSG still has a bunch of returning veterans it can count on.

There is one glaring hole, though. Who will play goalkeeper? READ

Caitlin Flynn thought the honor had passed her by and the nominating window had closed. It has been nine years since the former Endicott College soccer player graduated from the Massachusetts school, so if she hadn’t been selected for induction into the Endicott Athletics Hall of Fame by then, it was never going to happen. “I felt I was past the point of getting it,” she said.

Or so she thought. READ
