YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. — Yorktown’s girls lacrosse squad rolled past visiting No. 5 John Jay-Cross River 16-6 on Tuesday in the Section 1 Class B semifinals, led by four goals and five assists from Rilea Fusco.

"Our key to success on offense was definitely patience and working together just trying to find the open girl," Fusco said. "The defense played very well and made sure they were talking and working as a unit.  They really did a great job and played with intensity during the whole game."

Michelle Seger (4G, 1A), Caroline Keenaghan (4A), Ciara Frawley (3G), Ellen O’Callaghan (2G, 1A), Kelsey McDonnell (2G), Katie Vogel (1G), McKenna Duff (1A) and Lexi DelBene (four saves) also contributed to the Huskers’ victory.

That statement has been brought ...

“What? No!” I said. “Why would you think that?”

“Every single article of clothing you own is laid out on our bed,” he replied. “So I have to assume you are either leaving me or you have joined the armed services and if that’s the ...

What More Can Murphy Do?

June 21, 2018

In his letter “Murphy should address gun laws” (June 14), Bernard Lipsy praises Sen. Terrence Murphy and then condemns him for not keeping guns away from people that shouldn’t have them. I was wondering just what new laws he would propose? How many more laws are needed? How about enforcing the numerous laws already on the books, which, by the way, isn’t being done?
