SMITHTOWN WEST BOYS LACROSSE

With two of Long Island's leading scorers on the Bulls squad, the team's offense is special. However, its defense might be even better. Matt Smidt continues to be key in net for the Bulls. The Ohio State-bound goalkeeper had seven saves in a 7-3 win against Whitman.

CHAMINADE BOYS LACROSSE

Sean Cerrone might be having the best season at the midfield position on Long Island. The senior scored the game-winning goal with 6.3 seconds left as the Flyers edged Iona Prep, 14-13, in CHSAA. The Flyers will host rival St. Anthony's on Thursday.

EAST MEADOW SOFTBALL

Only one game for the defending Long Island champions, but it was another dominant victory. The Jets defeated Baldwin, 13-1, behind Kristen Lindquist, who went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBIs, and Crista San Antonio, who went 2-for-2 with two RBIs.

MACARTHUR BASEBALL

Generals' pitching hasn't allowed more than three runs in one game and is averaging 1.25 runs allowed per game. This week, MacArthur proved it has what it takes in the clutch, scoring four runs in the sixth behind Paul DeMartino and Kevin Curtis to come from behind and defeat Baldwin, 4-1.

Sarah McKeveny was dominant at the plate, 5-for-5 with four RBIs in an 11-5 win over Sachem East. She also was dominant in the circle, a three-hit shutout with 10 strikeouts in a 11-0 win over Ward Melville, as the Thunderbirds remained the lone unbeaten team in League I.

MANHASSET GIRLS LACROSSE

The Indians suffered their first loss to Maryland's Notre Dame Prep. Abby Kucharczyk scored a dramatic tying goal with 18 seconds left, but Notre Dame answered 13 seconds later to pull off a 6-5 upset. Manhasset now ranks 20th in the country.

ST. DOMINIC BASEBALL

The Bayhawks completed a three-game sweep over St. Mary's. Brady Renner tossed a 12-strikeout, one-hitter in a 9-0 win. They got timely hitting as Brendan Harkin's two-out, seventh inning RBI won Game 3, 5-4.
