SHRUB OAK, N.Y. — North Salem opened the Hudson Valley Summer Field Hockey League on the right note by recording a 10-1 win over Ossining on July 6 at Lakeland High School.

Analisa Posa and Shaivy Tiwari each recorded three goals to pace the Tigers. Posa also dished out two assists for a North Salem squad that jumped out to a 6-1 halftime lead.

North Salem coach Jen Frohman is hoping to see steady progress from her Tigers over the course of the league, which runs until Aug. 8.

“Our goal for summer league is that it continues to help both individuals and the team grow as a whole,” Frohman said.

Natalie Intrieri (1A), Mariana Alpizar (1A), Isabella Fox-Mills and Jessica Reiner added one goal apiece.

Molly McGuinness made two saves in net for the Tigers.

North Salem (1-1) fell to Lakeland Gold 10-0 on July 11. Olivia DeSanto made eight saves, while McGuinness had five saves.

The Tigers took on Yorktown on July 13 and will face-off with Putnam Valley at 6 p.m. the following day.

Six seniors graduated from last year’s squad and many of them made major contributions.

“Although those girls cannot be replaced, we need to do our best to fill their shoes,” Frohman said. “We have a unique situation this year where there will be no seniors on our team, so along with filling six graduates’ shoes, we have leadership positions that also need to be filled. This winter and spring, many of the girls began that process as they continued to build their game and improve their skills through various leagues and clinics.”

Winter Is Fleeting

By some alchemy, winter is flying by us this year. Faster and faster every year of our lives. We’re nearly two-thirds done with the season already. There’s just a month and a few extra days left to withstand. A snap of the fingers and it will be gone. Finished. Another winter to enter into our personal annals, in which we thrived or merely survived.

I Love 'I Hate Halet'

Let’s face it, folks. Not everyone loves Shakespeare. Not even all actors. Andrew Rally is one of them. In fact, where there’s a Will, there’s a way Andrew will find to avoid acting in one of those famously timeless plays. And for good reason. Shakespeare tests, to the fullest, an actor’s mettle, and Andrew is strictly a TV actor.

He has just ended a star turn in the ...

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 Am Woman, Hair Me Roar

When you have short hair, it is inevitable that you will spend an inordinate amount of time growing your hair out and then getting fed up and cutting it again. I have been down this hair-brained road several dozen times before, complaining for months until I am convinced my husband is going to cut it all off while I sleep just so he doesn’t have to listen to me whine about it one more ...

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 ...

'Customers Deserve Explanation' of Ballooning Rates

The following is a letter sent from Hudson Valley lawmakers to Carl Taylor, president of NYSEG:

Our offices have been inundated with frustrated constituents who have recently received their electric bills for the month of January. Some claim their bills have quadrupled compared to the previous month. A recent review of your website shows no issuance of a press release to customers warning of ...
