Ward Melville hasn’t scored less than 14 goals in a game yet this season, and that’s a fact Garden City coach Steve Finnell knows all too well heading into Saturday’s matchup.
“You look at this on paper, and they’re better than us,” said Finnell.
Ward Melville’s Jack Bruckner, Danny Bucaro and Christian Mazzone each have scored more than 20 goals with 10 assists so far this season. Garden...Read more »
Bay Shore defeated Northport,16-6, Thursday to remain undefeated in Division I. The Marauders (7-0) jumped out to an 11-4 lead at halftime and never looked back.
“We played hard throughout the game,” Bay Shore coach Allison Pfeffer said. “Our gameplan was to jump out and take the lead so we could control the ball. Northport has a very good attack and we didn’t want them to have the ball.”

And it’s the return of the “Manager shout-out” posts. During Wednesday’s Freeport vs. Roslyn girls lacrosse game, I was compelled to bring it back and give kudus to Alanna Gordon and Helena Pearlmutter.
Those two, players out with injuries, did the scorebooks for their respective teams and were very helpful and pleasant.
If you’re unfamiliar or don’t remember the manager shout-outs from...Read more »
Despite trailing by two goals with a minute left in regulation, Farmingdale pulled out a 7-6 victory in overtime on Wednesday over Hicksville — without winning any of the last three faceoffs during the comeback.
“We’ve been getting killed on faceoffs all year,” said Farmingdale boys lacrosse coach Bob Hartranft, who added that John Ragno’s injuries over the past two seasons has impacted the...Read more »
Ok, it wasn't that much of an upset, considering we're dealing with the Suffolk Class B champs, here. But you have to admit ESM's prospects weren't looking good after this past month. Want proof?

After winning the CHSAA winter intersectional championships, St. Anthony’s looks poised for another strong season in spring. A second place finish at the Knight-Time Invitational, held last Saturday at Uniondale High School, featured a number of strong performances from some of the same athletes that made the Friars’ winter season so special.
Melissa June won the 100 meters in 12.42 seconds,...Read more »
Nassau boys lacrosse top performers for the period April 9-15:
1. Tim Muller, Chaminade
After Chaminade’s win against Manhasset last week, coach Jack Moran said, “People sitting in the stands look for stats, but our kids know they get to play on offense because we’re really good on the other end.”
Senior Tim Muller is a big reason why. He held Manhasset’s top scorer, Mike Fahey,...Read more »
Some shakeup in our rankings this week after Ward Melville belted Smithtown West on Monday, 13-4. West Islip isn’t done yet, either, as its 7-6 comeback victory over previously unbeaten Northport demonstrated.

And here goes another batch of awesome – this week’s installment of Players of the Week. A tribute to the girls who made us “Ring the Alarm” and admire the way they’ve managed to “Upgrade” their teams. (For real, this might be the last week of the Beyonce theme. I’m running out of song titles to pun.)
As always, feel free to hit us up via e-mail or on Twitter (@StephenHaynes4 and @AlbaneseLaura)...Read more »
1. Garden City (6-0) They're at it again, silencing the doubts. The 6-0 start with wins over Manhasset and Massapequa earns them the top spot. 2. Manhasset (4-1) A week ago, the Indians looked a team capable of running the table. One loss doesn't change everything - certainly not a 10-9 defeat in overtime - but their standing does take a hit. 3. Farmingdale (4-0) The Dalers have quietly gone about...Read more »
