1. Garden City (17-0)
We'd presume that with every dominating performance the Trojans put forth - each another step toward Cortland - the tension builds among the Class B teams upstate thinking, "Please, someone beat them." Hasn't happened yet. Garden City defeated South Side, 16-7, in the county semifinals and will face Manhasset in the final at 3 p.m. Wednesday at Hofstra.
2. Farmingdale (15-1)
Kim Kolodny scored six goals and Kelly McPartland had four goals and three assists as the Dalers beat Baldwin, 18-6, in the Nassau Class A semifinals. Farmingdale has seemingly gotten better as the season progressed, and they've done it without star midfielder Maegan "Peg" Meritz, who was lost early to a torn ACL. They'll face longtime rival Massapequa in the final - for the seventh straight year - in the nightcap Wednesday at Hofstra. (The Massapequa & Farmingdale boys teams will also square off in counties.)
3. Manhasset (14-3)
The Indians topped Wantagh, 11-7, in the semifinals to set the stage for Wood Stick II: Girls Edition. Manhasset will take on Garden City for the Class B county title - a matchup that parallels the boys'. The Trojans won the previous meeting, 13-6, on May 4 but Manhasset is closer to full strength now with Kerri Fleishhacker back from injury.
4. Wantagh (13-4)
The Warriors played well defensively in the second half against Manhasset in the semifinal, holding them to just a goal. But a poor first half (in which they trailed 10-5) did them in. Still, Wantagh had an impressive season and clearly was among the top teams.
5. Massapequa (12-4)
The Chiefs held high-scoring Port Washington to 10 goals in a 15-10 victory in the Class A semifinals. Kelsey O'Brien and Maddie Pimental each scored four goals in the win.
6. South Side (10-5)
The Cyclones lost to Garden City in the semifinals (Ain't no shame in that). But South Side did go 10-5 and finished thre regular season 3-3 in a tough Conference B-I.
7. Port Washington (13-3)
The Vikings fell to Massapequa, 15-10, in the semifinals. They finished the season 13-4 and cousins Alexa (105 points) and Jackie Froccaro (95) finished third and seventh in scoring in Nassau.
8. North Shore (12-4)
The senior stars stood out in the Vikings' 18-4 win over Seaford in the Class C semifinals. Amanda Johansen had five goals and three assists, Lauren Janelli had four goals and three assists and Jennie Berglin made 17 saves for No. 2 North Shore. They'll take on Locust Valley in the final on Wednesday.
9. Cold Spring Harbor (11-5)
The Seahakws entered as the top seed in Class C, but were upset, 13-12, in the semifinals by No. 4 Locust Valley. Taylor Bleistein's goal 34 seconds into sudden death won it for the Falcons. Bairre Reilly's goal as time expired tied it at 12. Victoria Kotowski had tied it at 11 with 22 seconds left in regulation for CSH.
10. Locust Valley (12-5) and Baldwin (11-6)
Yep, we've got a tie here. Locust Valley makes its first appearance in the top 10 by virture of its upsetting Cold Spring Harbor in the semifinals... and that 12-5 record isn't shabby. The Falcons have a small roster, but they're getting the most out of it.
The The Bruins lost to Farmingdale (Ain't no shame in that) in the semifinals, ending a season in which they went 11-6 and held their own in Conference A-I.
