NORTH SALEM, N.Y.— North Salem’s varsity field hockey team earned two shutout wins over Our Lady of Lourdes and Edgemont last week to see its record improve to 3-1-2.

“The keys to our victories against Edgemont and Lourdes were that we started to pass the ball more on offense and that we’ve been more effective on our corner plays,” North Salem coach Jen Frohman said.

What impressed Frohman the most was that her Tigers held both teams to just one shot in each game.

The Tigers defeated visiting Lourdes 2-0 on Sept. 17.

Mariana Alpizar got the scoring started in the first half on a feed from Hailey Starace to send North Salem into halftime with a 1-0 lead.

Jessica Reiner blasted a long hit to stretch the lead to 2-0 with 16:31 left in the game.

The Tigers dominated possession as Lourdes only recorded one shot on goal.

North Salem blanked visiting Edgemont 3-0 on Sept. 16.

Natalie Intrieri put the Tigers up 1-0 on a feed from Reiner just two-and-a-half minutes into the game. Starace netted her first varsity goal with 5:55 left in the first half with Charlie Reiner recording the assist.

Her sister Jessica gave the Tigers a 3-0 halftime cushion with just 23 seconds remaining. Ally O’Sullivan notched the assist.

Olivia Desanto made one save in net.

North Salem and Valhalla battled to a 0-0 tie on Sept. 14 in a game that featured a 45-minute thunder delay at halftime. Desanto made eight saves.

“Our defense was impressive led by Charlie Reiner, Natalie Intrieri, Kaitlyn Thayer and Daphne Dong,” Frohman said. “Natalie had to slide to back for us this past week while Hannah Houlihan is out with an injury. Emma Cindrich also did a nice job as she filled in for Natalie at right mid.”

North Salem hosts Bronxville at 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 22 and will then host Rye Neck at 12:30 p.m. on homecoming two days later.

“We are making excellent headway as we go into the midpoint of our season this week,” Frohman said. “We need to continue to grow as a team, make good decisions quickly and continue to find the back of the net more often.”

She had file envy

Who says paperwork is not sexy?! This week, I was so impressed (and even charmed) by the paperwork and systems of two different women. I was even a little envious. In the first case, my client Lois in Ardsley decided that it was time to get her paperwork in order. After six years of shifting paperwork, a dysfunctional home office, an international move and the purchase of a new home, she had HAD ...

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 ...

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.”
