Old Forge got two hits apiece from John Gaffney, Parker Clemans, and Griffin Kleps, with Clemans and Tyler McGough each knocking in a run on Monday, May 7 in a game the team lost at home to New York Mills.

Also adding hits were PJ Perkins, Garrett Pavlus, McGough and Tecwyn Williams.

Garrett Pavlus started on the mound for Old Forge, and over five innings he struck out nine while walking just one.

Greg Hunkins took over in the sixth, allowing just one run.

“We played fairly well and stayed pretty close throughout. New York Mills is a pretty good team—they always are year in and year out.”

Still, Old Forge had some chances in the bottom of the last inning when the team loaded the bases with no outs.

“We weren’t able to deliver the runs, but we played well and certainly made opportunities for ourselves,” Riedman said. Continue reading

Hoops: Varsity squad starts season with impressive tourney win Basketball… basketball… EVERYWHERE! Well, not exactly everywhere. Not yet, anyways. But college hoops are well under way, with Syracuse, currently ranked third in the nation, poised for a great run.

Meanwhile, the NBA owners and players finally figured out how to divvy up approximately four billion in revenue. Must be rough.

While most of us are trying to stay afloat, these guys took their sweet time splitting up a king’s ransom, making sure to hit the airwaves with a full slate of games on Christmas Day. Ho-Ho-Ho.

And, locally, our high school hardwood enthusiasts are heating things up, starting with an appearance in the holiday weekend Remsen Tip-Off Tournament. How did they fare? Read on, and see for yourself. Continue reading

Boys varsity team rises to post season challenge

Coach Louie Ehrensbeck prepares the team just before taking the field.

It’s been a historic week for the Old Forge Boys Varsity Soccer squad and, while the results weren’t thoroughly positive, hindsight will undoubtedly prove that there’s little to complain about.

It’s kind of like the old joke that starts out with a doctor telling his patient that he’s got some good news and some bad news, then asking which one he should deliver first.

Invariably, the answer is, “Gimme’ the good news.” Of course, the bad news always negates the good, leading to a hearty chuckle for all.

Well, Sectional games are no laughing matter and, in this case, the “bummer” part isn’t really so horrible, while the uplifting part is truly over the top.

So, let’s get the not-so-much-fun element out of the way, and save the best for last.

Trevor Godemann outpaces a Ram to the ball.

On Tuesday, November 8, the guys boarded a bus headed for Sauquoit to take on the mighty Hamilton Emerald Knights for the Section III Class D Championship.

That’s the same team that had defeated Old Forge twice during the regular season, by scores of 3-0 and 3-1.

They’re also a team that has been State-ranked all season.

And, finally, they’re the same team that has played in New York State’s Final Four the last three seasons. Pretty heady stuff. Continue reading
