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.

Facebook, Fools, Friends and Rock ‘n’ Roll

Since its inception, Facebook has been a regular target of mockery and criticism—everything from, “Do I really need to see a picture of the pastrami sandwich you had for lunch?” to “Why did you help the Russians get Donald Trump elected?”

No one likes to mock and criticize more than I do—just ask all of my former friends. And while I agree that Facebook can ...

It Was the Economy That Got Trump Elected

I am not easily shocked by much anymore. Yet, I was by last week’s column by fellow columnist Bernie Kosberg. Kosberg, whose column runs regularly in Mahopac News and sometimes in Yorktown News, said in the first paragraph: “Several readers decried my conclusion that the overwhelming support of Putnam County voters for Trump was not due to economic anxiety or the unavailability of ...

God Is Just! Schneiderman Is Out!

Whenever you doubt that God is just, remember last Monday. That is the day New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman resigned.

As you know, I have had him in my sights for a long time. He has squandered our tax dollars with more than 100 lawsuits against the Trump administration. Plus, his lawsuits against Big Oil and trying to nullify our double jeopardy laws. Most will go nowhere as ...

It Wasn’t About the Economy or Jobs

Soon after President Trump was “crowned” by the Electoral College in November 2016, I wrote a column about Putnam County voters that garnered some attention—both good and bad. Several readers decried my conclusion that the overwhelming support of Putnam County voters for Trump was not due to economic anxiety or the unavailability of suitable jobs, but to the overarching fear ...

BOCES… What’s in a Name?

Do you ever wonder what BOCES stands for? We associate the name with a center of learning that supplements the general curriculum of local high schools by teaching students specialized trades. Beyond that, does everyone in the non-BOCES population, those who have no direct connection to the programs, fully appreciate the priceless value it brings to our communities’ young adults and their ...

Bias in Media, in Me, in You

While listening to an interview with a voter on my car radio, I thought I had excess ear wax that obstructed my hearing. The voter (whose name is Bruce) said this about one of the qualifications that a Senate or House candidate must have to earn his vote: “I don’t want anyone with ideas. We have enough of those already.”

I’m a journalist and have been one my entire ...

Dog Allergies, Part Deux

“I have some good news and I have some bad news,” I told my husband.

“Give me the good news first.”

“OK. The vet doesn’t think the dog’s ear infections are from a food allergy after all, so we don’t have to keep feeding him that hypo-allergenic food,” I said.

“Hallelujah,” shouted my husband. He was understandably ...

Cross My Legs and Hope to Die

One morning, I had a big cup of coffee as I usually do, and then I got in the car and drove 40 minutes to a clothing store I had been curious to check out. I don’t normally drive 40 minutes to go shopping, but since I am a stay-at-home mom and everyone knows we stay-at-home moms just spend our time shopping and eating bonbons, I figured, “What the hey.”
