Somers Bounces Back Against Magnus

Senior Jess Monaco passes off to the defense.

BARDONIA, N.Y.— It was an unusual start to the season for Somers’ girls lacrosse team as it suffered a four-goal loss to defending Class C sectional champion Bronxville.

“The loss to Bronxville was a great first game,” senior Livy Rosenzweig said. “It exposed what we need to work on and was a good first test. We learned a lot about who we are as a team and what we’re going to have to do going forward to be successful throughout the season. We learned that we need to win more draws and be more scrappy on the circle and move more on offense off ball to create better opportunities for ourselves.”

The Tuskers created those scoring chances in a 17-10 win over host Albertus Magnus on March 29, behind seven goals and an assist from Rosenzweig.

“My teammates did a great job of finding me on cuts or working hard to get me open,” she said. “Most of my goals came from me running off of screens that my teammates set up.”

The Falcons came within four goals at 14-10 in the second half, but Somers finished the game on a 3-0 run to close out the win.

“After coming back into the game and only being up by four goals, I knew we needed to step on the gas a little bit and we did that in the last 10 minutes,” Rosenzweig said.

Hannah Tiso added two goals and two assists, while Teagan Lucchese also contributed a pair of goals and had an assist. Sophia Fiorino (1A), Katie Campbell, Mary Murphy, Jen Campbell, Lauren Colavito and Emma Kittredge netted a goal apiece in a well-rounded scoring effort.

“It’s awesome seeing so many girls scoring,” Rosenzweig said. “It shows how well we share the ball. It also shows how many threats we have on the field. If I’m being shut off we have so many other people that can step up. I think that will be the key to our success in the future. It’s great to see other people stepping up, especially so early in the season.”

Somers (1-1) was slated to host Rye at 4:30 p.m. today, and then will host Pelham at 11 a.m. on April 10.

‘You’re with your mother!’

Mom’s birthday is this month. She passed away in 2004 but she lives forever in our hearts, thoughts and memories.  
Mom had class. I see photos of her alone, with Dad and/or others, and her elegance shines: the way she stood, her expressive hands, sparkling eyes and beautiful smile. She dressed with flair—a scarf here, a flower there or matching shoes. Truly a graceful lady.

Radio days

I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic for the bygone era of listening to a baseball game on a crappy-sounding transistor radio. I define nostalgia as the feeling you get when your memory of something is better than what it actually was. I don’t need to bother mustering any warm feelings for the transistor radio, because AM reception is just as crappy-sounding now as it was then.

Only if you’re lucky

Be careful what you wish for…you might get it!  

I heard recently that a group of citizens in the town of Harrison is challenging an approved 148-unit senior (seasoned) citizen home. The builders have tried to appease these dissenters by reducing the original size of the project, which is to be built on an unused granite quarry.  

I question their challenge because when I ...

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.”

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.”
