Husband Arrested in Manhasset Murder
Manhasset residents had turned out in force to see a lacrosse game under the lights on Saturday night, May 4. They got more excitement than they bargained for. A little after 8:30 p.m. police cars began to arrive on Manhasset Avenue and a police helicopter hovered overhead. The word was spread that there had been a shooting at 95 Manhasset Avenue, just over the LIRR bridge from the field. The homeowner, Nikolaos Kotsopoulos, called 911 and said that there had been a shooting. He told authorities that a masked man had broken into his house, which is guarded by floodlights, surveillance cameras and a German shepherd. He said that the man fired one shot at his wife, Carol, 41, and fled. Nikolaos Kotsopoulos told authorities that he tried, but failed, to tackle the intruder. At the time the couple's two young sons, George and Nikolaos, were playing in the basement. The police arrived within minutes but found no trace of the gunman. Mrs. Kotsopoulos was transported to North Shore University Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 10:47 p.m.

Manhasset Blitz Downs Port
Huge comeback for the Manhasset Blitz allowed Bitter-Coleman's 4th Graders bragging rights. Sunday, May 5 was the day that two of Long Island's elite fourth-grade teams faced off at O'Connell-Molloy field. The 2-1 Manhasset Blitz (Bitter-Coleman) faced off against the 3-0-1 Port Washington team for possible division bragging rights on the North Shore. Port got off to a fast 2-0 lead that surely concerned the Blitz coaches. "It was two, very well-run plays that indicated the skills of the Port players early in the game," said Coach Bitter. "When I saw how well they looked to pass I called a time out to shut of their passing lanes." What is great about our fourth grade players is they understand how this game is played. The 4th grade players know they must first play defense before they can control the ball, score and hopefully win the game.
