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.

The DACA Dilemma and the Trick of the Trickle-Down Theory

Here is our very own Sen. Charles Schumer on the Senate floor last week: “President Trump has stood in the way of a bipartisan solution to DACA, a problem he created in the first place, and yet the president is in this dream world. He thinks, ‘Oh, I can blame Democrats for the impasse.’ As I said, only in the 1984 world where up is down and black is white could this be true.

Cuomo’s Frivolous Lawsuits Cost Us Money

Since Donald Trump became president, New York State has filed more than 100 lawsuits against the federal government. This includes those filed by both Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. It does not include lawsuits filed by the City of New York. Most of them are political in nature, filed to please the plaintiffs’ voting base. In the real world, if we had filed ...

Big Brother Comes to Mahopac

High-tech, government-controlled, eavesdropping devices—listening and watching and prying into our everyday lives—are becoming pervasive. They are being positioned on the streets and highways we travel and they can be programmed to enter our homes and workplaces through the lenses and microphones of the PCs and smartphones we use.    

Of growing concern is the ...

Beautiful, 'Clean' Coal

After completing his first full year in office—an alarming year, at that— Donald Trump has concluded that climate change is not a significant national threat and that the sacred lands and waters of this country should be sold to the highest bidder. 

The Trump administration has withdrawn from the Paris climate agreement; deregulated national landmarks; freed public lands for ...

I Love 'I Hate Hamlet'

Let’s face it, folks. Not everyone loves Shakespeare. Not even all actors. Andrew Rally is one of them. In fact, where there’s a Will, there’s a way Andrew will find to avoid acting in one of those famously timeless plays. And for good reason. Shakespeare tests, to the fullest, an actor’s mettle, and Andrew is strictly a TV actor.

He has just ended a star turn in the ...

A Trip to the 'Liberry'

Raise your hand if you didn’t—did not—call the library the “liberry” when you were little. I’m guessing not a lot of hands just went up.

Didn’t just about all of us say “liberry” when we were learning to read? (Well, whaddya expect when a place is named something way too easy for little kids to mispronounce?)

OK. Now, raise your hand if ...

I Am Woman, Hair Me Roar

When you have short hair, it is inevitable that you will spend an inordinate amount of time growing your hair out and then getting fed up and cutting it again. I have been down this hair-brained road several dozen times before, complaining for months until I am convinced my husband is going to cut it all off while I sleep just so he doesn’t have to listen to me whine about it one more ...

I'm Mrs. Heat Miser

To be perfectly honest, I did not need a large rodent with insomnia to convince me that we had six more weeks of winter. It’s been so cold outside lately that when I go out, my nostrils stick together. The dog is so hesitant to go out that he does his business right on the deck, less than five feet from the door, and then gives me a look of contemptuous indignation when he comes back in the ...

Bazzo Needs to Get His Facts Straight

February 15, 2018

To the editor,

Once again Mr. Bazzo, in his Feb. 8, column cherry picks facts, ignores other facts, passes along lies and spins so fast to the right that it’s amazing he doesn’t drill himself into the earth.

Bazzo is correct—the economy is doing well, and we should give credit where credit is due. Thank you, President Obama for taking the economy from the brink of another ...
