Get the scoop on the Long Island girls lacrosse scene from Newsday
There must be something to having Mass. appeal. After all, there seems to be an impending Mass. exodus in regards to girls lacrosse.

Farmingdale’s Samantha Brescia last week made a verbal commitment to UMass, joining a slew of other Long Island girls who have chosen to play lacrosse at Massachusetts.
Brescia, a defender/midfielder entering her junior year...Read more »

Farmingdale was a gracious (and victorious) host for Saturday’s Long Island Challenge. The event featured four games, Suffolk vs. Nassau, with Farmingdale’s 8:30 p.m. matchup with Eastport-South Manor being the nightcap.
The event went smoothly (‘least as far as I know) and it was a festive atmosphere. Props to Barbara Brescia (Samantha’s mother) and Laurie Kolodny (Kim’s mother), who helped...Read more »
It was all on the table for Farmingdale – with one win, the opportunity to prove exactly what this 2012 group is capable of; to make itself a large blip on the national radar; to muzzle the mouths of any doubters – and the Dalers cleaned up.
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.

Here are some of the quotes from after tonight's Class A girls lacrosse championship between Northport and Farmingdale.
Northport coach Carol Rose:Seven years between championships, how does it feel to be back in this spot?It feels great. I’m just fortunate to be with all these awesome kids. I knew our season wasn’t over because they love coming to practice, playing lacrosse and...Read more »
Because space is limited in the paper – which doesn’t always jibe with my verbosity – the newspaper version that’ll run in the morning is going to be shorter than I’d like.

Stuff said that didn’t make the paper following Farmingdale’s 14-9 win over Massapequa on Wednesday.
Of note: It was Senior Day at Massapequa and they held a nice pre-game ceremony that included the seniors being called up one-by-one, presented a box by teammates (sources tell me each had gifts from Build-A-Bear) and met at midfield by their parents. Props to the Chiefs for that,...Read more »
