BARDONIA, N.Y. - It was a tie game between North Salem and Albertus Magnus late in the second half with the clock winding down.

The Tigers were looking for the game winner, but it was the Falcons who found it.

Magnus scored with just one second on the clock to defeat visiting North Salem, 15-14, on Thursday, April 5.

“Magnus gained possession with less than two minutes left,” North Salem coach Christine Werlau said. “They brought it down and held onto the ball for a little bit. They have one player who had seven goals and three assists. She was definitely their main player. They got the ball to her and she basically drove through our girls and one of our defenders was called for a push. So they gave her an 8-meter shot. She took the shot and as the ball went in the net the buzzer went off.”

Werlau said that the two teams were evenly matched. The Tigers were down 9-8 at halftime and the game had multiple lead changes and ties.

“They have a couple of girls that can score as do we,” Werlau said. “We had four different goal scorers and they had six different goal scorers. That’s the big difference right there.”

Lydia Werlau and Grace Curran paced the Tigers (1-1) again. Werlau had four goals, two assists, four draw controls and two forced turnovers. Curran netted five goals, collected eight draw controls and caused two turnovers.

Amy Fetterolf added three goals. Jane Fetterolf had two goals and an assist while Katie Wagner passed for two assists.

“I think they’re doing really well,” coach Werlau said of the Tigers. “It’s early in the season and we haven’t really gotten outside, we’re still kind of working through some things. Magnus was a competitive team. This was a game I sought out, so to speak. They’re in our class (D), but we’ve never played them. The downside is it’s early in the season and the upside is it’s early in the season. We got to learn a lot from today. Magnus is a good team and they’re well coached. It was a challenge for our girls. There’s not much to say bad about what we did because they really had a lot of great things happen. But from the whole game I think we walked away with some things we’re going to continue to work on.”

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Seen Any Good Ol’ Movies Lately?

As I become more, uh, mature, I find myself enjoying older movies more than newer movies. The trio of films presented here for your consideration are three of my all-time favorites. They share great stories, great screenplays, great directing, great acting. They also have in common ratings in the 90s on Rotten Tomatoes, and a place of distinction in the National Film Registry, a highly selective ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...

Tipping the Scales in My Favor

As I was settling into bed one night, I happened to catch my husband out of the corner of my eye.

He was getting on the scale.

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” I yelled at him. He jerked his head around and looked at me with alarm.

“What? I’m weighing myself.”

I jumped out of bed and yanked him off the scale. 

“You can’t do that now!” I ...

“What? No.”

“Unlawful entry? Obstruction? Insider trading?” I ...

Recent Winter Storms Severe? Not According to the Highway Department

April 6, 2018

To the editor,

Your March 22 issue of North Salem News gave wide coverage to the recent storms of March 2 and March 7. Falling trees brought down power lines resulting in a loss of power for most of North Salem for almost a week. The local library and ambulance center were of tremendous help to our citizens during this emergency.

I soon noticed brush and branches being gathered by residents ...
