MAHOPAC, N.Y.— It hasn’t been an easy season for Mahopac’s field hockey team, but when the Indians look back on it, they’ll always remember their senior night win over rival Carmel.

Mahopac shut out the visiting Rams 1-0 on Wednesday, Oct. 18.

“Myself and the team as a whole felt much satisfaction to beat our rival on senior night because everyone was pumped up with lots of adrenaline and we all came together and really brought all we had onto the field,” senior Ally Conlin said. “It was just a great night all around.”

Conlin helped make it a great night by scoring the game’s lone goal in the first half on a corner with Erin Girven notching the assist.

“I received the ball from Erin and I dove on my knees to hit the ball with a reverse hit through a girls legs and into the goal,” Conlin said. “I put everything I had to make sure that ball went in. We all wanted to win it that night and I made sure I didn’t lose any opportunities to do so.”

Mahopac’s staunch defense was able to hold Carmel scoreless behind a strong effort from goalie Shannon Barry and her defenders.

“The key to keeping Carmel off the board was simply how pumped up everyone was because it was our senior night,” Barry said, “and everyone really pulled together and played their heart out for the win. I think it was the best game we played all season.”

And a game the Indians will not soon forget.

“It meant a lot to beat Carmel because after losing to them at their home field we came back and defeated them on our home turf,” Barry said. “Also, being our rivals, it got everyone very excited to play and fans to come watch.”

You’ll Get a Kick out of Musical Classic ‘Anything Goes’

I’ve loved Broadway musicals since I was smaller than a piano bench. That’s one reason I enjoy writing about local productions in this space. The more people who go to musicals, the happier it makes me.

I didn’t realize how old-fashioned about musicals I could be, though, until my wife Elyse and I at long last saw “Wicked.” It only took us 15 years to get there.

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...
