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.”

Both, through their philanthropy, spend millions on various needy organizations like hospitals. What makes them liberal targets is their funding of various conservative think tanks and candidates.

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...
