Somers Tops Tappan Zee

ORANGEBURG, N.Y.— Behind five goals apiece from Gabby and Livy Rosenzweig, Somers’ varsity girls lacrosse team defeated host Tappan Zee 18-8 on Wednesday, May 4.

The Tuskers led 7-3 at halftime, but pulled away in the second half.

“In the second half we started adjusting to Tappan Zee’s style of play and started taking the game into our control,” said Gabby, who also had two assists. “We stopped letting them control the pace of the game. They were very athletic and aggressive and we weren’t letting the game come to us in the first half. By the second half we started being more patient and playing smart and that was the key to our win.”

Teagan Lucchese had three goals and an assist, while Katie Campbell and Hannah Tiso each added two goals. Sydney Ericson also added a goal.

“We’re continuing to click as a team and it’s something very special to watch,” Gabby said. “We all want the girl next to us to succeed and this mindset is pivotal to our success.”

Jess Monaco made six saves for the unbeaten Tuskers, who improved to 14-0.

Somers took on Ursuline on May 11 and will host defending Section 1 Class C champion Bronxville on May 14, at 11 a.m. for its senior day to close out the regular season.

“Bronxville is a very talented team,” Gabby said. “Most of their girls play year round and they are very athletic. To pull out that win we need to play with a lot of energy, heart and hustle. If we play our solid defensive game and fast-paced offense we will be set.”

The two-time defending Section 1 Class B champion Tuskers are getting prepared for sectionals, which start on May 18.

“Going into sectionals we’re working on our endurance and game situations, so that we’re prepared for anything that is thrown at us, Gabby Rosenzweig said. “Hopefully this week we pull out two wins that will add to the momentum we have 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 ...

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 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 ...
