Frustrating Week For Lady Bonackers


It was a week of frustration for the East Hampton softball team.

The Lady Bonackers (3-7 in League IV) first saw a scheduled game against last-place Elwood/John Glenn rained out on Wednesday, April 16, before a bizarre set of circumstances on Saturday. East Hampton was slated to host Sayville for an 11 a.m. game, but no umpires or officials showed up for the game. After both coaches put in calls to their respective athletic directors and to Section XI, the governing body of high school athletics in Suffolk County, they were finally informed at around 1:30 p.m. that umpires had never been assigned for the game by Section XI. The coaches of both teams decided to scrimmage for a few innings before Sayville got back on the bus to head home.

Both the Glenn and Sayville games still needed to be rescheduled as of Monday.

On Monday, the Lady Bonackers finally got on the field for a game, but were dominated in a 14-0 loss at the hands of Miller Place (8-2) at home. East Hampton had only two hits in the loss, and didn’t have any answers for the Lady Panthers defensively either.

“They’re a good team,” East Hampton head coach Lou Reale said. “They were better in every position than we were, and we didn’t play well on top of that.”

ON THE SCHEDULE: Thursday, 4/24, at Westhampton Beach, 4:30 p.m.; Saturday, 4/26, at Rocky Point, noon; Wednesday, 4/30, vs. Mount Sinai, 4:30 p.m.
