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.”

Why Do Kids Hate Math?

Dear Dr. Linda,

I am in second grade and have a problem about math. My teacher just keeps giving me homework and it’s driving me crazy. Because she keeps giving it to me on weekends and spring and summer breaks. And it’s only one level and it’s too hard. But the other people who have special needs get to be moved into a higher or lower group and they learn even more because ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...
