Vikings Football Plays Homecoming Game
The Port Washington Vikings Varsity Football team lost the homecoming game to Oceanside on Saturday afternoon by the score of 18-7. The loss was quite a disappointment to the Vikings, who battled the much higher ranked Oceanside team the entire game. Port's defense, led by senior captain Matt Ferraro, effectively shut down the Oceanside attack after giving up 15 points in the first quarter when Oceanside managed to score after two unfortunate Port turnovers. Oceanside's only other points came on a field goal late in the fourth quarter. Port's only score came on a 22-yard touchdown run by senior Eddie Hepp who followed a huge block by junior Harry Jung.
On The Bay
Thomas L. Stark could be called one of our "own" for he grew up in Port Washington, learned to sail at the Knickcerbocker YC, and is still a member there although he lives in Riverside, CT. Stark distinguished himself in the international sailing scene recently when he came in third in the inaugural Swan 45 Gold Cup in Capri, Italy. It must have been very exciting over in Capri last week, for the racing was competitive and the ultimate title up for grabs until the very last race. In a final day that brought torrential rain and light, shifty winds that delayed the start of the final windward-leeward race, the race finally was finished in a light 9 knots of breeze.
