Column: Playing in the now

As a sports fan, sometimes I think my biggest gripe is there’s never enough time to gloat over a big win. Last week, after trailing the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, the New York Rangers pulled out an improbable upset, winning three straight games to send the Pens packing and advance to […]

Huguenots win league

By MIKE SMITH With an extra-inning win over Mamaroneck on May 8, the New Rochelle Huguenots secured sole possession of the 2014 league II-B championship.

Huskies clip Eagles

By MIKE SMITH The Eastchester lacrosse season may have come to an end on May 16, but second-year coach Steve Lennon said the Eagles’ success in 2014 is proof the program is headed in the right direction.

By VIDAL SERFATY The Eastchester Eagles lacrosse team hosted the Fox Lane Foxes in the first round of the Section I girls lacrosse playoffs on May 15 at Tuckahoe High School.

Huskies reach semis

By MIKE SMITH Through the first two rounds of the Class A lacrosse playoffs, Harrison hasn’t exactly played to the level of a traditional 13-seed. With two straight decisive wins over higher-seeds though, a now-healthy Huskies squad is showing it might be better than its regular season record suggests. With a 9-4 win over Eastchester on […]

Cruz remains perfect

On May 16, lightweight boxer Bryant “Pee Wee” Cruz kept his perfect record intact with a unanimous decision win over Osnel Charles at Foxwoods Resort Casino, improving his professional mark to 11-0. Although Cruz wasn’t perfect against the hard-charging Charles (10-8-1), his trainer, Ryan O’Leary, said the one-sided decision was a testament to his charge’s […]

Garnets bounced from playoffs

After playing their way into the Class B semifinals, the Garnets season came to an end on May 20 when they fell to a powerful Yorktown team 14-5 on the Huskers home turf. The Huskers were able to spread the scoring around, as Sydney Stern led her squad with three goals and an assist. Stern’s […]

Rye celebrates damp G-Day

By MIKE SMITH Rain may have washed out some of the events scheduled for Rye’s annual G-Day event on May 10, but the nascent celebration of the Garnets’ school spirit is alive and well in its second year and should be a staple on the Rye athletic calendar for years to come. In 2013, the […]

Tigers beat White Plains

By MIKE SMITH Mamaroneck’s softball team might not have a ton of veterans on the roster this year, but what it lacks in experience, the team more than makes up in good old-fashioned moxie. On May 9, behind a strong effort from hurler Jen Gottfried, the Tigers shut down their rivals from White Plains to […]

Tigers edge Broncos

Brianna Steigerwald’s four-goal day helped push Mamaroneck past Bronxville on May 8, as the Tigers beat the Broncos 12-11 in a thriller at Chambers field. It was Mamaroneck’s second win over a strong Bronxville team this season, although neither game was decided by more than a goal. Bronxville’s Mason Warble matched Steigerwald goal for goal, […]
