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.)

Say, Manhasset, how you doin’?

Coming off Monday’s huge win over Farmingdale, it had to be wondered: How much momentum do they take from this? And how far does that momentum go?” The answer: far enough.

Cassie Perettine scored the winner with 1:41 left as Farmingdale edged Garden City, 13-12, on Tuesday in a highly-anticipated non-league matchup.

You ever look at those LaxPower, MaxPreps and ESPN Rise national rankings and think, "OK, but it's kind of arbitrary"? They are a pretty good gauge - and the best we've got on a national scope - but without those teams playing each other there's always room for debate. We've all heard or made some form of despite-the-rankings argument: "___ has played tougher competition" or...

How's that for an attention-grabbing statement?

Truth is, not many teams can stand toe-to-toe with the six-time Class B state champions (an NYS record), but after falling to Garden City in the Long Island championships last year, coach Abby Zeltmann thinks her squad can entertain the possibility.
