FINAL SCORE: GARDEN CITY 20, WANTAGH 13
As GC ran out the clock the ball was passed around, when goalie Kelly Weis got the ball a cheer rose up from the GC bleacher and with three seconds left, Weis tossed the ball downfield.

One week of girls lacrosse playoffs are in the books in Nassau County, leaving four teams in each class to battle it out for the county crowns. As expected, the defending champions and runners-up are still alive and favored for their next matchups. But don’t count out upsets. Last round, three lower seeds advanced.
Each class comes with intrigue. Class A pits two upstarts against two...Read more »
After wholesale changes in last week's girls lacrosse top 10, there are no changes in this week's rankings, because the 10 teams listed below went a combined 13-0 last week.

After no changes in last week's girls lacrosse top 10, there are quite a few changes in this week's rankings due to some surprising upsets in Suffolk.
Northport lost its first game of the season on Friday, 9-8 at Ward Melville (scroll down), but remains the No. 2 team on the list because it was playing without Suffolk's leading scorer Shannon Gilroy, who was nursing a hamstring injury. Gilroy...Read more »
Hate to be unoriginal, but there's no change in this week's girls lacrosse top 10.
Why? Because everyone who lost, lost to a higher ranked team. Shoreham-Wading River lost to No. 1 Garden City, but the third-ranked Wildcats earned a close victory at No. 4 Rocky Point. St. Anthony's lost to New Jersey powerhouse Moorestown, while the Nos. 6-10 teams all went undefeated last week, including...Read more »
As the challengers keep falling, the cream is rising to the top.
Garden City, the top girls lacrosse team for the entire spring season thus far, remains at No. 2 in Week 5 of the spring edition of the Big 10, behind a seemingly unstoppable Bay Shore softball team. On Saturday, the Trojans avenged an overtime loss to Manhasset last year with a 19-9 demolition of the Indians (more on this game...Read more »

Gregg Sarra believes Garden City may have an edge over Farmingdale, as he states in this MSG Varsity video, but he deferred to us...Read more »
Quick, who’s the patron deity of Wantagh? Ok, weird question. But how about Janus, the Roman god of beginning and endings? Janus, also the namesake of January, is usually depicted with two heads, one looking ahead one looking behind.
Just like Wantagh girls lacrosse.
The Warriors have reached five straight county championship games, falling to Garden City each time. It would be...Read more »
