Dan Koehler scored two of his four goals in a pivotal third quarter as No. 2 Sayville defeated No. 1 Comsewogue, 12-5, in the Suffolk Class B boys lacrosse final Wednesday night at Stony Brook University's LaValle Stadium. It is the second county title for Sayville (15-3), which plays Garden City, the No. 1 team in the country, in the Long Island championship at 6 p.m. Saturday at Hofstra.

Jake Sichenzia (three goals, two assists) scored his second goal to make it 9-3 with 8:12 to go as Sayville scored three goals in the opening 3:48 of the fourth to put the game out of reach.

Koehler's third goal made it 6-3 with 1:03 left in the third after Comsewogue failed to score on a pair of shots moments earlier. Pat Fleming made 14 saves for Sayville, including several key stops in the third quarter to help the Golden Flashes preserve their lead.

Kenny Scotland scored both of his goals in the second quarter for Comsewogue (16-2), the second tying the score at 3 with 5:43 to go in the half. Sichenzia scored with 45 seconds to go in the half to give Sayville a 4-3 lead at the break.

Andrew Gonzalez (three goals) scored two goals in the first quarter to help Sayville take a 3-0 lead after one.
