For Sachem East, every game is important.
Whether it's the first contest of the season or Friday night's Suffolk overall championship game, the goal is to respect every opponent.
That point was evident as Class AA girls basketball champion Sachem East needed a strong effort late in the fourth quarter to hold off feisty Class B champion Southampton, 54-42, at Ward Melville.
