MAMARONECK, N.Y.— Facing a three-goal halftime deficit, Mahopac’s girls lacrosse team was unable to come-from-behind in a 16-10 loss to host Mamaroneck on April 12.

Trailing 8-5 at halftime, Kristen Maxwell cut the Tiger lead to two goals just 90 seconds into the second half.

Mamaroneck, however, wasn’t messing around after that as it scored five goals over a four-minute span to take a commanding 13-6 lead.

“It was a game of possessions and runs and unfortunately Mamaroneck was more successful than us in both of those areas,” Mahopac coach Jim Lieto said. “We were never able to score more than two goals in a row while they were able to go on a three-goal run in the first half and the backbreaking five-goal run in the second half after we got as close as 8-6.”

Caroline Raymond led Mahopac (4-2) with four goals and two assists. Maxwell added two goals, while Katie McDonough (1A), Natalie Scanlon, Diana Good and Morgan Kirby added a goal apiece.

Emily O’Shea (four saves) and Jordan Barbagallo combined to make six saves in net. Kirby and Scanlon each picked up four groundballs.

The Indians crushed visiting Wappingers 18-3 on April 8.

Raymond and McDonough tallied three goals and three assists apiece. Kirby added four goals. Good (1G, 2A), Gabby Light (1G), Maxwell (2G, 1A), Briana Corace (2G), Devin King (2G, 1A) and Colleen MacNeil (1A) helped the Indians fill up the stat sheet.

O’Shea and Barbagallo notched three saves each in the win. Scanlon, Maxwell and Marella Verde scooped up four groundballs apiece.

Mahopac traveled to Arlington on April 18 and hosts Suffern at 4:30 p.m. today.

I Do Not Make Stuff Up!

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote in my column, “Watergate analogies apply to Obama, not Trump,” that President Obama’s Justice Department planted a spy in the Trump campaign. I said I used the term “spy” because this was a counter-intelligence operation, not a criminal investigation, where the term informant would have been proper.

That statement has been brought ...

Here's What You Missed Last Week

Last week, the Daily News ran a headline, “When is our father coming home?” This dealt with a person here illegally, married to an American woman with a family, who was arrested at an Army base while delivering pizza. You are supposed to think that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), under Trump, is tearing families apart. As usual, it was a crock of cow pies. It was ...

Reagan on Trump

The party of “Honest Abe” has now become the party of Dishonest Don, and what follows are some disturbing displays of a Republican Party that has become devoid of conscience:

• More than 4,600 American citizens dead in Puerto Rico—a postscript to the government’s abysmal response to the widespread devastation of Hurricane Maria; 
• The underhanded ...

The Rich Get Richer, and We’re Paying For It

According to a Harvard University study published late last year, most Americans believe that the richest 20 percent of Americans own just half of the nation’s wealth. Wrong! The top 20 percent own 93 percent of the nation’s wealth, and the top 1 percent own 40 percent of that wealth. Additionally, the top 10 percent of earners in 2017 took home more than half the nation’s ...

What Kind of Sports Parent Are You?

Social media recently showered a lot of likes and love on a high school pitcher in Minnesota whose team was playing in a regional final that would send the winning team to the state championship game.

After the last batter of the game struck out, the pitcher did something unheard of. Rather than spontaneously join his teammates in an on-field celebration, as is customary, the pitcher ...

Packing Heat

“Are you leaving me?” asked my husband one night as he surveyed the contents of my closet on our bed.

“What? No!” I said. “Why would you think that?”

“Every single article of clothing you own is laid out on our bed,” he replied. “So I have to assume you are either leaving me or you have joined the armed services and if that’s the ...

I Come from the Land Down Under

I know this is a family column, so I’m going to put this in as delicate terms as possible.

This morning I woke up and I knew, as sure as the sun shines over Bora Bora, that something was very, very wrong in that place in my body where the Bora Bora sun doesn’t shine.

It’s that place I used to refer to my daughter as her hoo-hoo. But it certainly wasn’t a happy ...
