Annie Heagerty, St. Anthony's She had five goals and two assists in the Friars' 14-9 win over Garden City on Saturday. Heagerty scored two goals in the first minute, helping set the tone and take control early. She had three goals and an assist in each of the two games (John Carroll and Sacred Heart) - both wins - before that showdown. Kerri Baum, Bellmore JFK The junior had 13 points, including...Read more »
The season is rushing to a close and we're getting a much clearer picture of what the playoffs are going to be like. And me? Well, I'm just trying to keep up with all the upsets. My poor, bedraggled coworkers have all left, but here I am, doing the top 10. Why? Because I care. But mostly because I forgot to post this on Sunday. My bad, guys. My bad. Drop me down a few rankings. Also, they're vacuuming....Read more »
1. St. Anthony's (9-1) The Friars had about as good a week as is possible, coming off the crushing loss to Maryland's Bryn Mawr. St. Anthony's beat John Carroll (Md.), handled CHSAA archrival Sacred Heart, and topped Garden City - all nationally-ranked teams - last week. Annie Heagerty totaled 15 points and Tori Holland made 36 saves in the wins. St. Anthony's is now ranked third in the LaxPower...Read more »
Random thoughts: Gosh, there a lot of teams called the Vikings... "Gone with the Wind" isn't bad. It's one of those movies that I tried watching once as a kid (because it came on TV so often), then I'd get bored and fall asleep five minutes into it. Last night I made it through 2 1/2 hours before falling asleep. Not from boredom, but because I'd decided for whatever reason to watch a four-hour...Read more »
Yep-yep! We’ve gone a step farther with the manager props, including a photo on this one. This comes from the St. Anthony’s vs. Garden City game on Saturday. The Friars won, 14-9, but you can read about all that here.
This post is about giving kudos to the folks doing the books and helping us needy reporters out.
Louisa Boliver and Gabby Giannone kept the book for Garden City (with an...Read more »
We told y'all we were gonna keep it up with the manager shout-outs.
Here's the thing, the managers (or, as we and the coaches call them - "the girls doing the book") are generally, universally awesome. They're informative, they're usually nice and, when we're not there, they're the reporters on the lax field. As it so happens, when I covered Glenn/Mattituck, I got double the helpfulness...Read more »
Meg Gulmi, Syosset There was the 19-save performance in a 12-6 win over Calhoun, the 10 saves in a 10-9 victory over East Meadow. Then Gulmi outdid herself on Saturday, making a season-high 22 saves in a 14-5 win over Mineola. Natalie Sulmonte, Island Trees The freshman had career highs with eight goals and five assists in Island Trees' 18-13 win over Carle Place on Monday. She scored four goals...Read more »
1. St. Anthony's (7-1) The Friars lost to Baltimore's Bryn Mawr, 15-7, on Saturday in the New York-Maryland Challenge. They bounced back on Sunday with a 13-3 win over John Carroll (Md.) in which Darcy Messina and Annie Heagerty each scored three goals and Tori Holland made 13 saves. St. Anthony's has another tough week ahead, facing Sacred Heart and Garden City.
(Useless note: Bryn Mawr's...Read more »
1. Garden City (7-2) The Trojans had their 55-game win streak snapped in a 20-9 loss to McDonogh (Md.) on Saturday and followed that with an 8-3 defeat at the hands of Bryn Mawr (Md.) on Sunday. The NY-MD Challenge didn't go as Garden City had hoped, to say the least, and their national rankings will take a hit as a result. Still, they maintain hold of Nassau's top spot. The Trojans have another...Read more »
We got career-highs, we got eight-goal games, we got....Girls on Fire.
Erika Flowers, Patchogue-Medford - I don't know if anyone had a batter week than her. Flowers scored six goals in a 16-15 OT win over North Babylon (including one to help overcome a two-goal deficit in the first overtime) and scored scored five consecutive goals in a 7-3 second half to key Pat-Med in a 10-9...Read more »
