CORTLANDT MANOR, N.Y. — The lead was never in jeopardy as top-seeded Lakeland/Panas’ boys lacrosse squad jumped out to a 4-0 first-quarter lead and didn’t look back in a 17-8 victory over No. 8 Mahopac in the quarterfinals of the Section 1 Class A tournament on Friday at Walter Panas High School.

Rebels’ senior captain Sean Makar (4G, 4A) scored the first goal of the game.

“It’s always good to get off to a good start and garner momentum,” Makar said. “You always want to be up in this game so coming out strong, putting them down and trying to break their confidence in the first quarter is what we were attempting to do.”

Mahopac cut the Rebels’ lead to 5-2 early in the second quarter before the Rebels scored four consecutive goals.

“We got the momentum back, which was important,” Makar said.

Having plenty of confidence was Makar’s teammate Kevin Dyckman (15 saves), who saved two big shots at the outset of the third quarter, preserving the Rebels’ 10-5 halftime lead.

Dyckman’s saves ignited the Rebels (14-3), who tallied four of the five goals scored in the third quarter, with three coming from Tim Fallo (5G, 2A), to go up 14-6.

“Those two saves were big, especially because they got one late in the second quarter," Fallo said. "So for him to come out and make those two saves and to get the ball in the back of the net was huge for momentum."

Winning 17 of 25 face-offs for the Rebels was T.J. Bryan.

“He’s a workhorse," Fallo said. "He’s there every day practicing and for him to come out like that was huge for us, to get us the ball, we put in some goals and backed him up,” Fallo said.

Joe Janavey (4G, 2A), Griffin Shiland (1G, 2A), Drew Thompson (1G, 2A), Tommy Briscoe (1G) and Matt Hodges (1G) also contributed to the Rebels’ winning effort.

Mahopac (8-10) was paced by Andrew Evans' three goals and an assist. Michael Argila made 11 saves.

Lakeland/Panas will host fourth-seeded Mamaroneck in the semifinals on Monday at home with the game time yet to be determined.

Facebook, Fools, Friends and Rock ‘n’ Roll

Since its inception, Facebook has been a regular target of mockery and criticism—everything from, “Do I really need to see a picture of the pastrami sandwich you had for lunch?” to “Why did you help the Russians get Donald Trump elected?”

No one likes to mock and criticize more than I do—just ask all of my former friends. And while I agree that Facebook can ...

It Was the Economy That Got Trump Elected

I am not easily shocked by much anymore. Yet, I was by last week’s column by fellow columnist Bernie Kosberg. Kosberg, whose column runs regularly in Mahopac News and sometimes in Yorktown News, said in the first paragraph: “Several readers decried my conclusion that the overwhelming support of Putnam County voters for Trump was not due to economic anxiety or the unavailability of ...

God Is Just! Schneiderman Is Out!

Whenever you doubt that God is just, remember last Monday. That is the day New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman resigned.

As you know, I have had him in my sights for a long time. He has squandered our tax dollars with more than 100 lawsuits against the Trump administration. Plus, his lawsuits against Big Oil and trying to nullify our double jeopardy laws. Most will go nowhere as ...

It Wasn’t About the Economy or Jobs

Soon after President Trump was “crowned” by the Electoral College in November 2016, I wrote a column about Putnam County voters that garnered some attention—both good and bad. Several readers decried my conclusion that the overwhelming support of Putnam County voters for Trump was not due to economic anxiety or the unavailability of suitable jobs, but to the overarching fear ...

BOCES… What’s in a Name?

Do you ever wonder what BOCES stands for? We associate the name with a center of learning that supplements the general curriculum of local high schools by teaching students specialized trades. Beyond that, does everyone in the non-BOCES population, those who have no direct connection to the programs, fully appreciate the priceless value it brings to our communities’ young adults and their ...

Bias in Media, in Me, in You

While listening to an interview with a voter on my car radio, I thought I had excess ear wax that obstructed my hearing. The voter (whose name is Bruce) said this about one of the qualifications that a Senate or House candidate must have to earn his vote: “I don’t want anyone with ideas. We have enough of those already.”

I’m a journalist and have been one my entire ...

Dog Allergies, Part Deux

“I have some good news and I have some bad news,” I told my husband.

“Give me the good news first.”

“OK. The vet doesn’t think the dog’s ear infections are from a food allergy after all, so we don’t have to keep feeding him that hypo-allergenic food,” I said.

“Hallelujah,” shouted my husband. He was understandably ...

Cross My Legs and Hope to Die

One morning, I had a big cup of coffee as I usually do, and then I got in the car and drove 40 minutes to a clothing store I had been curious to check out. I don’t normally drive 40 minutes to go shopping, but since I am a stay-at-home mom and everyone knows we stay-at-home moms just spend our time shopping and eating bonbons, I figured, “What the hey.”
