The news was largely good for East Hampton's girls lacrosse team last week. Joe DiGirolomo's squad improved to 2-7 as the result of wins over Hampton Bays and Southampton before losing 10-9 to Hauppauge on Saturday. Melina Sarlo, who is to play the sport at Hofstra, scored seven goals in the 16-9 win over Southampton. East Hampton defeated Hampton Bays 9-7.

The boys team, the South Fork Islanders, which is based at Southampton High School, honored four seniors from East Hampton -- Joe Scully, Nick Cordone, Cooper Ceva, and J.P. Amaden -- and one from Pierson, Ike Fagin, before Saturday morning's game here with the league's undefeated leader, Ward Melville.

It was a wretched day, rainy and cold, not good for spectating, though the players were undaunted. East Hampton, with goals by Charlie Corwin and Amaden, and with four point-blank saves by Ceva, kept pace with the visitors in the first quarter, which ended with the Patriots up 4-2, but were shut out 5-0 in the second on the way to a 14-6 final. Thus Ward Melville improved to 10-0 and South Fork dropped to 5-5 in league play. 

As of Monday, the Islanders had games left with Sachem East, Northport, William Floyd, and Patchogue-Medford. Sachem East was 6-4 as of Monday, Northport was 8-2, William Floyd was 4-6, and Patchogue-Medford was 5-5.
