SOMERS, N.Y.— Two-time defending Section 1 Class B champion Somers attained one of its goals by clinching the league title with a 17-8 win over visiting Horace Greeley on April 27.

“It’s amazing to win the league as a senior,” Somers’ Gabby Rosenzweig said. “We set goals in the beginning of the year and this was one of them. It’s so nice to see our hard work pay off and the little things we worked on during the year helping us achieve our big goals. Hopefully we continue to reach our goals for the rest of the season as they would make my senior year complete.”

Somers (13-0) jumped out to a 10-2 halftime lead.

Balanced scoring was a part of the Tusker win as six players scored two goals in Rosenzweig (4A), Izzy La Rocca (3A), Sydney Ericson (2A), Livy Rosenzweig (1A), Katie Campbell and Teagan Lucchese. Emily McCormack, Sheridan Devito, Jordan Cavaliero, Rachel Riger and Sophia Fiorino each netted one goal.

“Everyone on the team contributed and got to show their stuff which was awesome to see,” Gabby said.

Jess Monaco (four saves) and Michelle Croen combined for six saves.

The Tuskers cruised past host Byram Hills 14-3 on April 29 behind three goals apiece from Livy (1A) and Gabby Rosenzweig. La Rocca had two goals and two assists.

“We worked on our chemistry and playing solid defense and offense,” Gabby said of the wins over Byram Hills and Greeley. “We didn’t need to be fancy or do anything crazy to get these wins — we just played solid and strong.”

McCormack (1A), Riger (1A), Hannah Tiso (1A), Fiorino, Ericson and Campbell each added one goal. Monaco made four saves.

Somers defeated host Scarsdale 17-7 on May 2 behind big games from Livy Rosenzweig (5G, 3A), La Rocca (3G, 3A) and Gabby Rosenzweig (4G, 2A). Tiso added two goals and Monaco had a solid game in net with 12 saves.

The Tuskers, who travelled to Tappan Zee on May 4, are looking to finish the regular season on a high note with sectionals on the horizon.

“We will need to compete hard and give the rest of the games everything we have,” Gabby said. “We’ll be working really hard on improving our team defense and working on moving the ball fast on offense. Even if we don’t win every one of our games, knowing that we worked as hard as we could and played with heart will give us confidence going into playoffs.”

Momma's birds fled the nest

This year I was late in setting up my deck. Call it procrastination, muggy weather or whatever excuse, I finally got to it last week. With help from son, George, we set up the outdoor dining table and chairs; he methodically placed the flower boxes on the railing: “they have to be evenly spaced!”

We did have a concern: what about the nest the sweet little birds had built under the ...

Be-bop near the train stop

Last Friday was such a nice day we decided to head down to Tarrytown and take in some jazz in Pierson Park for the Friday Evening Concert Series. If you’re in the mood for it, a little jazz can be just the thing. Much of it is instrumental, so you don’t even have to sing along. Every time I see a rock band these days, they start the song, get to the chorus and then stick the mic out ...

Semantic revision of history

The latest fiasco I’ve read about is the renaming of the “Laura Ingalls Wilder Award” to the “Children’s Literature Legacy Award.” Why? Because the renowned author of Little House On The Prairie portrayed Native Americans (American Indians) in stereotypical language.

I must inject a personal experience here. A great friend of mine many years ago was Red ...

A (Burnt) Toast to Love and Marriage, on the Rocks

In its first few moments, sitcom-style comedy “Clever Little Lies” grabs audience attention right away, with one of the most revealing wardrobe changes you’ll ever see on stage. It is done modestly but just provocatively enough to elicit vocal appreciation from amused patrons.

The fast-paced play, starring Richard Kline of TV comedy classic “Three’s ...

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...
