It hurt Shoreham-Wading River to drop two games from its three-game Suffolk County League VII baseball series with Mount Sinai, but what was much more painful was watching Vincent Uzzi clutching his right knee in obvious agony after tumbling to the ground.

Peter Lucas of Aquebogue drove to Wading River Monday to see his longtime physician for blood work.

But when he arrived at Dr. Robert Bernard’s office on Route 25A, he was turned away by 10 signs taped up around the building advising patients that the office is closed and warning that “trespassers will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Premises under 24-hour surveillance.”

Mr. Lucas, 66, is one of several patients who reached out to the Riverhead News-Review in recent days searching for answers after the sudden closure of the local doctor’s practice, Family Care Medical Center.  (more…)

Size isn’t everything for a basketball team, but it sure is nice to have.

Certainly, height can be overrated, but when that height is accompanied by talent, it can make a difference. That is something the Shoreham-Wading River High School boys basketball team can appreciate. (more…)

SUFFOLK COUNTY CLASS C TOURNAMENT | MUSTANGS 8, WILDCATS 4

About an hour before game time, when the players on the Mount Sinai High School girls lacrosse team marched toward their field for pregame warmups on Tuesday, there was not a single smile on their faces. On the contrary, they looked all business, wearing deadly serious looks. One might even say they appeared downright angry, as if resentful that someone was going to dare try to take something away from them that they had worked hard for.

The fact that they were facing Shoreham-Wading River may have only made them more determined. The two teams, whose schools are separated by only eight miles, are fierce rivals, after all.

“It’s Army-Navy,” said Mount Sinai coach Al Bertolone. (more…)

MUSTANGS 13, WILDCATS 0 (5 INNINGS)

What will the Shoreham-Wading River High School softball coach, Christina Shiffman, recall when she looks back on her team’s recently concluded season?

“Honestly, I’m remembering how great they can look in one moment, you know,” she said. “Sometimes I’m in awe at some of the plays that they make.” (more…)

The title said Class C county championship. But the game may as well have been for a state championship.

The two top-ranked teams in the state squared off Tuesday afternoon at Dowling Sports Complex and when it was over, the Mount Sinai Mustangs kept their perfect record intact. The Mustangs led start to finish in a 7-3 win over defending state champion Shoreham-Wading River.

The Wildcats lost their first Class C playoff game since 2006. And it dropped their overall playoff record since that time to 29-3.

The Mustangs won their second county championship in program history and first with Shoreham also in Class C. Mount Sinai lost in the 2011 state finals while Shoreham was in Class B.

Shoreham had been 5-0 in county championship games against Mount Sinai before today.

Caroline Fitzgerald and Kasey Mitchell each scored two goals for the Mustangs. The only Shoreham goals were scored by Jessica Angerman, Shannon Rosati and Paulina Constant.

Mount Sinai advances to the Long Island championship, which will be Saturday or Sunday.
