The Hampton Bays girls lacrosse team picked up its first victory of the season, 9-8, at home over Mercy on April 14.
Down a player on defense due to a penalty, Colette Levine made a save for the Lady Baymen and cleared the ball to Alex Maitland-Ward, who pushed the fast break. Maitland-Ward eventually passed the ball to an open Jean Louise Catena, who scored to give Hampton Bays the one-goal lead with 3.6 seconds remaining in regulation. It was Catena’s third goal of the game.
The Lady Baymen suffered a 20-5 loss at Bellport on Thursday, April 16. Last week’s win and loss brings the Lady Baymen’s record to 1-6 in Division II.
The Baymen lost, 15-5, at Mattituck/Greenport/Southold on Friday to fall to 2-3 in League IV play. Mattituck/Greenport/Southold held an 8-2 lead after the first quarter and that was all it needed for the victory.
The Lady Baymen found themselves in the midst of a three-game winning streak, as of Tuesday morning.
After winning, 5-3, at Pierson on April 15, which snapped a two-game losing streak, Hampton Bays won, 14-3, at Southold/Greenport on Friday, then won a non-league game at home over East Hampton, 11-0, on Saturday.
Part of the resurgence for Hampton Bays (4-2 League VI, 5-2 overall) could be linked to the return of starting pitcher Marley Tyler, who had sat out the first few weeks of the season with a leg injury. She was back in the circle against Pierson and pitched a complete game with seven strikeouts, five walks and six hits. And all three runs she allowed came in the last inning. Mackenzie Tyler, Marley’s younger sister, had a bases-clearing triple in the fifth inning that broke a scoreless tie and helped lead the Lady Baymen to victory.
Marley Tyler also pitched well against Southold/Greenport, allowing two unearned runs on two hits in five innings of work. But it was the offense that powered Hampton Bays in that game. Rebecca Harris went 3 for 4 with two triples, three RBIs and three runs scored. Mackenzie Tyler also went 3 for 4, with two RBIs and two runs. Sarah Jiudice had a 3-for-5 day at the plate and scored two runs.
Marley Tyler pitched five innings of one-hit, shut-out ball against East Hampton on Saturday. She struck out five. Emma Candelaria came in and pitched well in her two innings of work, allowing just one hit while striking out four. Taylor Dunn had an RBI triple in the first and Hannah Reed went 2 for 3 and scored a run.
After losing their first four matches of the season, the Baymen got in the win column with a 4-3 victory at Riverhead on Saturday. Evan Signorelli and Felipe Salazar were the big winners for Hampton Bays. Signorelli won his first singles match, 6-1, 6-3, while Salazar won his third singles match, 6-2, 6-2.
Hampton Bays lost, 6-1, at Eastport South Manor on Thursday, April 16, and lost, 7-0, at William Floyd the previous day. The Baymen are 1-4 in League VIII play.
