NY Boulders Playoff Run Comes to an End, Lose Wild Card to Ottawa, 8-2
The New York Boulders hosted the Ottawa Titans for the Frontier League’s Eastern Division Wild Card single-elimination game last night in Pomona. The Boulders’ bats were pretty quiet most of the game, in their quest for 13 wins in a row. With two out in the bottom of the ninth, second baseman Gabriel Garcia came to the plate to try and get things going…
And that was “Bryant Avenue” Bob Trivero of “The Doo Wop Dream Machine” — heard on WRCR AM 1700 and WRCR.com on Friday nights — with the call from section 107 at Clover Stadium. The Boulders lost, 8-2, and for them the season is done.

North Rockland Starts Varsity Football Season Saturday with New Coach
North Rockland’s varsity football team has a new coach for the first time in a decade. That’s when Coach Joseph Casarella was replaced by Tom Lynch. James Hickey was the team’s quarterback when he was a North Rockland student at the beginning of the century, and worked under Tom Lynch, who passed away last December. Hickey is now the 2004 graduate-turned-head coach. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kris Felicello says Coach Lynch’s spirit will live on in Coach Hickey…
Prior to joining North Rockland, Hickey coached at William Paterson University and at Don Bosco Prep and Randolph High School in New Jersey. He also played college football at C.W. Post and Bryant. The team’s opener tomorrow is a home, non-conference game against Monroe-Woodbury at 1pm.
