Three Village Patch’s Top 10 Moments of 2010

January 1, 2011

The girls’ soccer team earned a spot in the top 10 with their 4th straight County Title

The Three Village Patch unveiled its top ten athletic moments of 2010 from the Three Village area. Among the memorable accomplishments was Stony Brook University men’s lacrosse team’s near upset over the University of Virginia in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament, the Stony Brook University basketball team’s appearance in the NIT, and the Ward Melville fencing team’s incredible 128-game winning streak. The Bears nabbed two of the ten spots. Here is what the Patch had to say:

As 2010 winds down, let’s take a look at the best moments in Three Village sports from the past year, in chronological order.

March 9 – Stony Brook Doesn’t Make Friends: It was a defensive struggle with one of the lowest final scores you’ll see in a basketball game, but the Stony Brook School’s boys’ basketball team beat Friends Academy, 35-29, to win its first Long Island Class C championship. The Bears allowed only four points in the first quarter and 12 in the first half, but the Quakers would make it a game. Leading by three with one minute left, Tim Pandolfi scored two of his game-high 16 points with a layup that sealed the game.

November 5 – The Bears are Kings: Winning a County Championship is a tremendous achievement for a school, but on this day, the Stony Brook School took home an almost unheard-of three titles. The girls’ soccer team, gunning for its fourth straight title, faced off against local rival Port Jefferson. With 2:17 left in the second overtime of a scoreless game, Michelle Hennessy blasted in a goal to start the celebration. The boys’ cross country team also needed a tiebreaker to secure their title. After losing to Southold earlier in the year, they raced to a 28-28 tie in the championship. The tiebreaker was awarded to the Bears, who have won the Suffolk title for the fourth time in the last five years. The girls’ cross country was in a similar situation: losing to Southold and having to face them again in the County Championships. There was no need for a tiebreak in this one as Stony Brook outran their rivals, 24-31.
