CORTLANDT MANOR, N.Y. — Yorktown Green started the week off with a 10-0 victory against Pleasantville, led by rising senior midfielder Katie Vogel (6G, 2A) in the Hudson Valley Summer Field Hockey League.

“My teammates played a huge role in enabling me to have such a big game,” Vogel said. “The defense did a great job in clearing the ball up the field and the offense was always open for passes. I was able to capitalize on fast breaks and shot selection. I controlled my dribble and executed my dodges, which made it easy for me to get up the field with the ball.”

Yorktown Green (1-4-1) jumped out to a 4-0 halftime advantage and never looked back in the July 24 contest at Walter Panas High School.

“We have a very well-rounded team so everyone helped contribute to this four-goal lead,” Vogel said. “Our midfield is very athletic and full of speed. The fast breakaways were a key component in transitioning the ball up the field. We used the sidelines to our advantage and many dodges to get around our defenders. We had constant communication and were always looking for our teammates for a crisp pass up the field. Our defense did a tremendous job of minimizing the number of shots Pleasantville took by getting low and clearing the ball out wide.”

Caitlin O’Donnell (3G) and Emma Bilton (1G) also contributed to the victory against Pleasantville.

“They are both smart, great players,” Vogel said. “Emma knew exactly where to be to make contact with the ball and get the shot off. Caitlin's hustle throughout the game paid off and she was able to come out strong with a few goals.”

Yorktown White (2-5) fell 10-2 to Hendrick Hudson on July 26, led by Krista Dietz (1G) and Jess Devlin (1G).

You’ll Get a Kick out of Musical Classic ‘Anything Goes’

I’ve loved Broadway musicals since I was smaller than a piano bench. That’s one reason I enjoy writing about local productions in this space. The more people who go to musicals, the happier it makes me.

I didn’t realize how old-fashioned about musicals I could be, though, until my wife Elyse and I at long last saw “Wicked.” It only took us 15 years to get there.

Honestly, though, it’s ...
