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.”

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.

Let's Eliminate the Electoral College

Why do we have the Electoral College? It is certainly not a college and it doesn’t educate any one. Yet it certainly can elect a president of the United States.

That’s what happened in 2016 when a small majority of the electoral votes elected Donald J. Trump president of the United States. Mr. Trump was not selected by the majority of the people of our country. The majority of ...

Taking Baby Steps


OK, we’re a month into the New Year and not only have I NOT lost weight, but I’ve put back on the three pounds I lost four weeks ago! Many people would be discouraged and throw in the towel at this point, but I would encourage you to reboot your program and start again, every morning if necessary. Losing weight, saving money or getting organized are about mindset.

First, ...

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 ...

Peekskill AIMs to Become a 'Mediapolis'

What could the city of Peekskill possibly have in common with Silicon Valley, Hollywood and New York City? Like those familiar centers of multimedia creativity and commerce, the historic river town is downright giddy with excitement about transforming itself into a mediapolis, to coin a phrase.

Thanks to local movers and shakers, led by prominent Peekskill businessman Ben Green, the ...

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 ...

Getting Off on the Wrong Foot

“What happened to your ankle?” asked my neighbor when he saw the orthopedic boot on my right foot.

“I tripped while I was in Pamplona running with the bulls,” I told him.

He raised his eyebrows. “Really?”

“No. Not really,” I admitted. “I was actually climbing Machu Picchu and I fell over a llama.”

“Seriously?” he ...

'Bravo' to Column on Trump

February 15, 2018

To the editor,

I am responding to guest columnist Sy Globerman’s article, “Trump is revivifying America” in the Thursday, Feb. 8 edition of your newspaper.

Mr. Globerman is right on target. Bravo to him for stating the facts about President Trump. All we seem to read and hear from the media is Trump bashing.

Therefore, it’s quite refreshing to read about ...
