Shoreham-Wading River’s entry into the Suffolk County Class A baseball finals was, in a word, grand.

With a place in the finals within its grasp, Shoreham-Wading River came out swinging and left no doubt about the outcome. The Wildcats scored 14 runs from 13 hits in the first two innings alone Saturday. That included a 10-run explosion in the second inning, which was highlighted by grand slams from Dean Stalzer and Brian Morrell. For Morrell, it was already his second home run of the game and sixth of the year as the top-seeded Wildcats eliminated No. 4 Mount Sinai from the double-elimination tournament, 16-4, at Kevin Williams Memorial Field in Shoreham. Mount Sinai’s other playoff loss also came to Shoreham, 3-2, on Wednesday.

Following a foul by Huntington with 13 seconds left in the game, Riverhead midfielder Kayla Kielbasa had the ball in the pocket of her lacrosse stick while she raced diagonally toward the right side of the field with Huntington players desperately chasing after her.

It wasn’t long after the playoffs had begun for the Riverhead High School boys lacrosse team when it was all over.

It was a tale of two halves as Riverhead was able to go toe to toe with visiting Northport through two quarters of play. Tied at six goals apiece to begin the second half, Northport shut out Riverhead in the third quarter and allowed just two goals in the fourth to cruise to a 13-8 victory Tuesday in a Suffolk County Class A Tournament outbracket game at the Pulaski Sports Complex in Riverhead.
