Recapping the week of April 15-21 in Long Island girls lacrosse, starting with a major shutout and finishing with other notables from a shortened week. All information is current as of Monday, April 22, at noon.
Bayport-Blue Point shuts out Mount Sinai
Shutouts are rare in girls lacrosse. Shutouts are rarer against nationally ranked teams. That didn’t matter to Bayport-Blue Point.
The Phantoms dominated Mount Sinai, 8-0, on Wednesday behind two goals and one assist from both Ailish Kelly and Megan Brockbank. Madison Grazidei made four saves
Off to a 7-1 start, the Phantoms reinforced their standing as one of the top teams in Suffolk Class C along with Westhampton and Mount Sinai. BBP's zone has confounded teams this spring, holding teams in its seven wins to 4.85 goals per game. Eastport-South Manor netted 11 in BBP’s only loss.
As a result of the win, the Phantoms shot up the Newsday rankings this week. Their next big tests come on Thursday against West Babylon and Saturday against Riverhead.
