MAHOPAC, N.Y.— Lakeland/Panas locked down Mahopac’s offense in an 11-4 win on Saturday afternoon.

The Rebels’ Griffin Shiland turned it on after they were called for an illegal stick with 8:05 remaining in the first half, resulting in a three-minute unreleasable penalty. All he did was bury a pair of shorthanded goals, deflating Mahopac’s spirit while boosting Lakeland/Panas’ lead to 6-1 at the break.

“We had to rally the troops,” Shiland said. “We were man-down and locked in so we had to prevail. Coach teaches us that when we are down to keep our heads up and do our thing. That’s what we did. We were down a man but had to keep our heads up and go for it.”

The Rebels have become synonymous with versatile, offensive-minded long-stick middies. Andrew Sofroniou filled the role prior to Shiland and was a similarly dangerous two-way presence.

“We kind of groom these guys going forward,” Lakeland/Panas coach Jim Lindsay said. “We want to play and get up and down the field. That’s a big part of what we do. We like to have a kid in the middle of the field who can handle the ball. (Shiland) knows what to do—he’s been doing that for three years now.”

Lakeland/Panas, which led 3-1 after the opening quarter, continued its domination as the second half got underway. The Rebels outscored the Indians 4-1 in the third quarter and led 10-2 heading into the fourth.

Joe Janavey and Matt Hodges paced Lakeland/Panas’ offense with three goals apiece. Sean Makar (1G, 3A), Tim Fallo (3A), Stephen Magarelli (2G) and Drew Thompson (1G) rounded out the offensive production. Goalie Kevin Dyckman spearheaded a strong defensive effort with eight saves. The four goals scored matched a season-low for Mahopac (2-5), which dropped its fourth-straight game.

“That’s what our main goal is every game—hold the other team under five,” Rebel defenseman Matt Kness said. “We really worked hard this week in practice, mixed up some things and it worked. Everyone did what they were supposed to do.”

Andrew Evans and George Weiss paced the Indians with two goals apiece. Evans also excelled at the dot, winning 13 of 18 faceoffs. Goalie Mike Argila continued a breakout sophomore campaign with 15 saves.

Mahopac, which also suffered a 12-6 loss to visiting Yorktown on April 18, will look to bounce back when it travels to Wappingers for a 4:30 p.m. game on April 27.

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 ...

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 ...

Multigrain, Please

I have no craving for white bread; it’s too plain, predictable and tasteless for me. I hunger for a chunk of multigrain or rye, maybe even a good-sized piece of pumpernickel raisin, with a schmear of cream cheese on the side.

I have no appetite for bland, clean-cut, middle-of-the-road, isolationist politics. And I find unsettling the cultural sameness, gross consumerism and incurious ...

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'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 ...
