Johns Hopkins and Duke had a week to get ready for Sunday's NCAA quarterfinal matchup at Delaware Stadium. But for Duke midfielder Myles Jones and Hopkins long-stick midfielder Michael Pellegrino, whether they knew it or not, their preparation began seven years ago as freshman high schoolers on Long Island. Jones graduated from Walt Whitman High in Huntington Station, N.Y., while Pellegrino played less than 20 miles away at Connetquot. Pellegrino came out on top in three of their four prep matchups, but Jones got even Sunday in Newark.

I know we have become a nation of such short attention spans and long-term addiction to instant gratification that asking viewers to spend even an hour with a documentary that could change the way they see the world is probably a fool's errand. But this fool is asking -- no begging -- you to see "Hard Times: Lost on Long Island," an HBO documentary premiering at 9 Monday night and repeating throughout the month on HBO and HBO2. I have not seen anything on-air, online or in print that so deftly nails one of the most important and least reported stories of our economic and political lives in this presidential election year.

• On a Notre Dame men's lacrosse team where everyone contributes, Clarksville's Jim Marlatt has grabbed the spotlight. The River Hill grad had a career-high five-point day in the NCAA first-round win over Yale. But it's depth that has been the key: 19 different players have hit the back of the net for the Irish, who play Virginia on Sunday in the NCAA quarterfinals. "We're just looking for the opening guy and whoever that guys is at the end of the play is going to get the goal," said Marlatt, a 2012 Big East Conference first-team honoree.

As I've said before, I'm an "Accidental Hamptonite. " I belong more in the "land of genteel decay," as a colleague once described Roland Park, than in a summer playground of the rich and sometimes-famous. That said, I have just returned from my 10th summer visit to Long Island, N.Y. Again I visited close college friends and their families. One has a house in East Hampton; the other is in Sagaponack, near the site of the Hampton Classic, where she and her daughter ride each year.

RIVERHEAD, N.Y. -- One of the constants of life on Long Island for the last half-century has been the steady swallowing up of farmland. Suburban development, roaring east from New York City, changed the quality of the air and water, overwhelmed old patterns of transportation and transformed the connections between people and the land. But now, here on the island's east end, there is a plot twist. To Ed Harbes, it is called opportunity. Harbes, a fifth-generation Long Island farmer, is doing quite well and wants to expand his acreage.

After scoring five goals in the first eight minutes Saturday, the Chesapeake Bayhawks offense was ice cold the rest of the way, dropping a 15-8 game to the Long Island Lizards on a sweltering night in Annapolis. The Bayhawks (5-4) took a 5-1 lead with 7:37 to go in the first quarter, but they only scored three times in the game's final 52:37. The Lizards scored 14 times in that span to blow the game open in front of 7,793 fans at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. "We didn't play smart lacrosse," Bayhawks coach Brendan Kelly said.
