The East Hampton Football Club continued its winning streak at the Ross School Sunday by defeating Brishna, a tough men’s soccer team from Queens whose players are of Afghan ancestry, 4-3, thanks largely to three goals by the elusive Luis (Piri) Correa.
The game had particular importance inasmuch as it was a third-round contest in the State Cup, a tournament that will continue in the spring.
Despite the cold weather on Thanksgiving Day (in contrast to recent years), which probably persuaded a number of runners not to come, the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot 3 and 6-milers in Montauk drew a big crowd.
There were 445 finishers in the 3-miler, which was won in 16 minutes and 46.6 seconds by Nicholas Berglin, 16, of Hampton Bays, and 55 in the 6-miler, which was won by 25-year-old Daniel Widlowski in 34:46.9.
“I think they may have had the better of it,” Howard Wood, who coaches East Hampton High School’s girls basketball team, said following Saturday morning’s scrimmage here with Pierson-Bridgehampton.
As a bitter northwest wind swept across the field, the East Hampton Football Club swept through its opponent, O.F.I. Crete, of Astoria, Queens, 8-0 in a men’s soccer game played at the Ross School Sunday afternoon.
The rout of the West Division’s runner-up team improved East Hampton’s record in the Long Island Soccer Football League’s third division to 7-0-0. John Romero’s powerful squad has outscored its opponents 38-4 since its first season of play in the L.I.S.F.L. began.
Marina Preiss capped an eventful East Hampton High School career with seventh-place finishes in the state’s girls swim meet’s 50 and 100-yard races in Ithaca Saturday.
John McGeehan, East Hampton’s coach, said on his way back from Ithaca that Preiss had swum the 100 in 51.76 seconds in a preliminary heat on Friday. “That 51.76,” he said, “was a best-ever time for her in that event, which seeded her third in the finals.”
