This is it, peoples. The last Top 10 of the regular season. I'm not exactly sure how it's going to work from here on out, but I promise that I'll keep you updated. If you want more info on the playoffs, check out the post below. There'll be no Suffolk games till <gasp> May 18. Until then, let this tide you over. It's been an honor to list stuff for you.

We're almost there, folks. Most teams have two games left in the regular season before it's time to duke it out for best of the best and my precious, precious rankings will be moot. I'll be honest: it tends to get a little more arbitrary the farther down you go on the list, only because it's a mess of who's beaten who (Team A beat Team B, Team C beat Team A, but Team B beat Team C...In other words,...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 »
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 »
We're heading into the home stretch and the picture is getting a lot clearer in Suffolk girls lacrosse. Hauppauge and Ward Melville continue to stand out in their respective divisions, while Mount Sinai wins a huge statement game against Shoreham-Wading River. It's the top 10, and things just got serious...

How much a week can change. Big losses by big teams reshuffled the Top 10 and, frankly, it’s a free-for-all up in here. Any team can take a crack at Suffolk elite and, it’s in that spirit that we welcome East Islip and Kings Park to the proceedings. As for the spots up top, Hauppauge seems to be the only powerhouse immune to shuffle, while Ward Melville solidifies its hold on No. 2. Meanwhile, Bay...Read more »
Here it is, boys and girls the game you all have been waiting for. And by "you all," I mean "me." What happens when an immovable object (that ole Ward Melville 'D') meets an unstoppable force (Northport's explosive offense, led by Cortney Fortunato)?
The short answer, at least this week, is "a whole lotta awesomeness." The longer story is an impeccably played...Read more »
It’s Week Two of Girls on Fire and, despite getting limited chances to shine in the shortened schedule, some players still managed to put a little extra oomph into their performances.
It’s attack of the juniors…
Floyd junior Courtney Murphy scored a career-high 10 goals against Smithtown East. But that wasn’t all. Not by a long shot. Two of them came in the first...Read more »
‘Twas a short week and hey, this is my second day off in a row (this rarely happens, give me a moment to bask)…so I present to you, the Suffolk Top 10, with an abridged introduction. No worries. I’ll overwrite next week, when I have more games to look at. The top of the rankings hold steady, while the bottom half goes through some seismic shifts. Check it out, laxers.

Yup. You read that headline right.
West Babylon defeated the Class A state champions, 11-8, behind five goals from Northwestern-bound Christina Esposito. Cortney Fortunato, the No. 1 recruit in the country, was held to one goal in what I'm gonna go ahead and call a Herculean effort by defender Madison Vasquez. Vasquez, a sophomore, has only been playing lacrosse for two years.
