  • SPORTS: Sports Beat

    Two losses, back-to-back, is not a good way to start a new basketball season. Last Saturday, the Vikings were unable to rebound from their opening round loss to St. Mary's 86-61 and also lost the consolation game to Friends Academy 71-65. In the annual Fritz Muller Tourney played at Manhasset HS, the double loss was reminiscent of last year's double loss in the same tournament. After shaking off those two losses, the Vikings went on to have their best season in over 15 years and made it to the conference playoffs. Hopefully the Vikings will rebound as they did last year and improve on those achievements. This week the Vikings are on the road again and will participate in the Bethpage Tourney. The first round game is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 16, at 6 p.m. Port will play Division in the opening round. Depending on the results of thast game, Port will play on Friday at either 6 ot 8 p.m. On Saturday, Dec. 17, Port travels to St. Dominic's for a non-league game and on Dec. 22 Port hosts Great Neck North at 7 p.m. FULL STORY
