MONARCHS 78, TUCKERS 67
First came the punch, and then came the virtual knockout.
An intense high school boys basketball game, played at a frantic pace, with one Bishop McGann-Mercy player ejected for punching a Mattituck player, all but dashed Mattituck’s playoff hopes.
McGann-Mercy, already eliminated from playoff contention, dealt a severe blow to Mattituck’s chances. The Monarchs punctuated their Senior Night by outscoring Mattituck, 27-16, in the fourth quarter for a 78-67 victory on Tuesday night.

TUCKERS 66, MONARCHS 58
More than a few eyebrows may have been raised over how Bishop McGann-Mercy was taking it to Mattituck in the first half of Tuesday night’s high school boys basketball game. The Tuckers were having trouble guarding McGann-Mercy’s Kevin Santacroce. They never held the lead in the opening 16 minutes, trailing virtually the entire half. An upset was in the making.
Or so it seemed. (more…)

CLASS B PLAYOFFS | TUCKERS 3, MONARCHS 2
Mattituck coach Malynda Nichol presented freshman Jane DiGregorio two options early this season.
One would be to stay on the junior varsity, where as a quick, talented forward, she would undoubtedly score plenty of goals. The second option was to join the varsity, where her playing time would be limited, but she could experience the big club. (more…)

TUCKERS 4, MONARCHS 3
When the top two high school girls tennis teams in Suffolk County League VII lined up to exchange postmatch high fives, it was the Mattituck Tuckers who were wearing smiles on their faces. They had a lot to smile about.
That is because the Tuckers withstood what could be seen as the last major obstacle to a second straight league championship. Drew Hahn’s victory at fourth singles completed a sweep of all four singles matches for the Tuckers and clinched a 4-3 triumph over Bishop McGann-Mercy on Friday at Mattituck High School. With three matches remaining, the Tuckers (10-1, 9-0) can clinch at least a share of the league title with a win over Southold/Greenport on Monday. An automatic playoff spot also comes with the league crown. (more…)
