Catherine McTiernan scored a season-high six goals to lead Garden City in a 17-5 win over Long Beach on Wednesday in a Nassau Class B semifinal at Adelphi.
(Again, if I ever start an article like that – so bland – anyone mentioned in said article has my permission to slap me.)
“It’s do-or-die time,” McTiernan said of her motivation. She scored five of her goals in a 12-3 first half....Read more »
Eastport-South Manor made program history on Tuesday, advancing to the county final for the first time with an 8-7 win over Sayville in a Suffolk Class B semifinal.

The stage is set once again… Sacred Heart vs. St. Anthony’s in the CHSAA Class AA championship game.
That will be because this was: The Spartans defeated Kellenberg, 18-8, in a semifinal at Cantiague Park in Hicksville on Friday. (If I ever go with a lead this bland in an article, you have my permission to slap me.)

It’s the return of “Leftovers.” Yesterday’s article on Shoreham-Wading River’s 13-11 win over Sacred Heart was shorter than usual – that was because we covered a bunch of games and the space in the section was limited.
