Shoreham-Wading River hit the high school football playoffs running. Literally.
The second-seeded Wildcats ran for 481 yards and ran up a 60-14 thumping of No. 7 Port Jefferson in a Suffolk County Division IV playoff qualifier Friday night at Thomas Cutinella Memorial Field in Shoreham. It’s the most points SWR has scored in a game this season. READ
Boy, it was cold inside.
That would be inside the Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School gym. And it had nothing to do with the temperature. It had to do with shooting percentages. READ
Whenever a player on the Bishop McGann-Mercy softball team gets a new bat, good things seem to happen. On Wednesday it was junior Kate Wilkie’s turn.
Wilkie christened her new bat by socking her first career home run, a three-run job that sent the Monarchs on the way to an 11-9 win over Port Jefferson in Riverhead. The game was played in raw conditions, with rain beginning to fall about halfway through and the temperatures in the mid-40s.
The streak now stands at one.
The Shoreham-Wading River football team may no longer be carrying the weight of two undefeated seasons on its shoulders, but the goal remains the same: to climb back atop the Division IV mountain. READ
Playing a man down in lacrosse is tough. It’s even tougher still when a high school team plays shorthanded for an entire 48-minute game.
Life is good for Shoreham-Wading River High School football these days.
The Wildcats just keep winning. It’s a good habit to get into.
“Things are going well,” agreed Shoreham’s coach, Matt Millheiser.
The 6-0 Wildcats maintained their undefeated record Saturday with a 35-0 blanking of host Port Jefferson in a Suffolk County Division IV game. It was their third shutout of the season. The Wildcats have outscored the six teams they have played by 228-28. READ

The Port Jefferson girls soccer team wasn’t beaten by Miley Cyrus, but the actress/singer sure didn’t help.
While some of the Port Jefferson players attended a Cyrus concert at Jones Beach, the Royals were left with only eight players for their Town of Brookhaven Summer League small school semifinal against Shoreham-Wading River on Friday evening.
It wasn’t enough.
