MAMARONECK, N.Y.— Mahopac’s girls lacrosse team fell into a six-goal first-half hole in the Section 1 Class A quarterfinals and couldn’t dig its way out.

The sixth-seeded Indians stormed back in the second half, but were unable to overcome the large deficit in a 9-7 loss to third-seeded Mamaroneck on Saturday, May 20.

“You are never ready for a season to end and it comes to an end so abruptly,” Mahopac coach Jim Lieto said. “The girls worked really hard leading up to the game and they gave it their all right till the very last second. I am so proud of how they never gave up, stuck by each other’s side and fought their way back into the game in the second half.”

Mahopac scored the first four goals of the second half over a nine-minute span.

Diana Good started the scoring spree when Morgan Kirby found her for a picture-perfect goal just over a minute into the second half.

Four minutes later, Caroline Raymond finished on a free-position shot. Two minutes after that Kristen Maxwell tallied another goal of the free position variety.

Raymond then found Good for a goal and Mahopac trailed just 7-5 with 15:43 to play.

Mamaroneck then went into stall mode to put a halt to Mahopac’s momentum. The Indians were held scoreless for the next 13 minutes.

Mahopac was forced to pressure the ball with five minutes left, leaving holes in the defense. The Tigers capitalized and went up 9-5 with just under three minutes to go.

Katie McDonough found Raymond for a goal and Briana Corace finished on a feed from Good to cut it to 9-7, but that was as close as the Indians would come.

Raymond (3G, 1A) and Good (2G, 1A) each had multiple point games for Mahopac. Emily O’Shea made seven saves.

The Indians, who finished the season 9-8, graduate a talented senior group of players.

“The Class of 2017 will truly be missed,” Lieto said. “They have had a tremendous four years of high school lacrosse and I wish them well in everything they do beyond high school.”

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.”
