SHRUB OAK, N.Y.— It wasn’t the ending eighth-seeded Mahopac envisioned as it fell 17-8 to defending Section 1 Class A champion Lakeland/Panas in the quarterfinals on May 18.

The top-seeded Rebels took control early on, leading 4-0 after one quarter and they never looked back.

George Weiss and Ryan Dugan netted goals to cut the Rebel lead to 5-2 midway through the second quarter. Lakeland/Panas went on a 4-0 run before Mark Carey (1A) answered for the Indians to end the drought.

Andrew Evans then displayed an incredible individual effort. He won a faceoff, charge downfield, absorbed two checks and dove while shoveling the ball into the back of the net to cut it to 9-4 with 3:25 until halftime.

Evans then scored with just two seconds left in the quarter to send the game into the break with the Rebels leading 10-5.

Lakeland/Panas quickly seized the momentum in the third quarter with Tim Fallo scoring two quick goals. The Rebels led 14-6 after three quarters with a Mahopac (8-10) comeback looking very bleak.

A key for Lakeland/Panas was T.J. Bryan on the faceoff X. He dominated by winning 17 out of 25 draws. Mahopac also had a tough time stopping the Rebel trio of Fallo (five goals), Sean Makar (four goals) and Joe Janavey (four goals), who combined for 13 out of 17 goals.

Evans led the Indians with three goals and an assist. Shane McDonald and Jack Sarfaty added a goal apiece. Michael Argila made 11 saves.

Mahopac rolled past ninth-seeded Carmel 14-1 in the opening round on May 17. Dugan paced the attack with four goals and three assists. Carey added four goals, while Evans had two goals and two assists.

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.”
