The Warriors (15-3) played by far their best game of the season to upset the Indians, 17-11, setting up a rematch with Garden City in the finals. It is the first time...

That opened the door for West Islip to move into a familiar position – the top spot. The Lions’ only loss was by one goal to Chaminade early in the season and they have now won 11 in a row. West Islip wraps up the regular season with winnable games against...

Suffolk Slant: The Top 10

Not exactly a news flash, but West Islip is at it again.

The Lions, who edged Smithtown West, 7-6, on April 19, won another low-scoring thriller against another chief Division I competitor on Thursday. This time it was rival Ward Melville, but the script was different.
