The result was a 1-1 draw in the Suffolk County League VII opener for both teams in Southold.

There has been a lot of smiling and laughing by the players on the Southold/Greenport and Riverhead high school girls tennis teams this season. It’s just the wins that have been lacking, but that hasn’t kept either team from enjoying itself.

BLUE WAVES 6, CLIPPERS 1

The last day of the high school girls tennis regular season brought one last chance for Riverhead and Southold/Greenport to win — something they haven’t done a lot this fall. In search of a rare victory, the two bottom teams in Suffolk County League VIII that began the day with only one win between them, were in for a surprise.

When the teams arrived in Peconic for Thursday’s match, they found the four courts at Robert W. Tasker Memorial Park unavailable because of maintenance work being done to the courts. That meant that all seven of the individual matches had to be played on the three courts across the street at Jean W. Cochran Park. Southold/Greenport usually uses the courts at both of the parks for their home matches.

With less than three hours of daylight to work with (the courts are not lighted), both Riverhead coach Jerry Duvall and Southold/Greenport coach Howie Geismar agreed that each match would be a pro set, with the first to win eight games the winner.

It worked out well for Riverhead, which snapped a five-match losing streak and finished its season on a winning note thanks to a 6-1 result. It was the Blue Waves’ first win since they defeated the Clippers by the same score on Sept. 19. (more…)

MONARCHS 3, CLIPPERS 3 (OT)

A spirited contest between two improved high school girls soccer teams brought what could be considered a just result. It could be said that neither Bishop McGann-Mercy or Southold/Greenport deserved to lose in their Suffolk County League VII game on Tuesday, and neither team did, thanks to Siobhan Merrill.

Merrill, a sophomore center midfielder, rescued McGann-Mercy from what would have been its first loss of the season by scoring the tying goal with 4 minutes 10 seconds left in the second overtime period of a 3-3 draw at Southold High School. (more…)

Dylan Stromski had a choice to make before the high school boys tennis season started. The Southold/Greenport senior, who was an All-County doubles player last year along with Will Richter, had the choice of remaining at doubles or switching to singles. Doubles would have been the safe pick, but Stromski opted to play singles for the first time since he was a freshman.  (more…)
