The postseason drought for Lindenhurst has been a long one. Lindenhurst hasn't made the playoffs since 1993, according to third-year coach Greg Flynn. Lindenhurst is 38-156 in the last 11 years, but with one win in its final two games, the Bulldogs will reach the playoffs. They play at Connetquot on Wednesday and host Bay Shore on Feb. 9. Lindenhurst defeated Central Islip, 43-39, Saturday to improve to 5-5 in League II. A record of .500 or better gets you into the postseason.
