The Riverhead Blue Waves weren’t singing in the rain, but there might have been some dancing going on.

Certainly, there was plenty of smiling and laughing on the Riverhead side as its girls lacrosse team celebrated the first Suffolk County quarterfinal win in the team’s eight-year history Saturday afternoon. Delu Rizzo’s goal off a return pass from Lauren Kenny with 30 seconds left in the second half snapped a tie, giving Riverhead a thrilling 13-12 victory over Middle Country at Nick DeCillis Field in Selden. With that, the fifth-seeded Blue Waves (11-5) move on to the Suffolk Class A semifinals against the Division I champion and No. 1 seed, Northport (17-0), on Wednesday. READ

Spring has sprung and a new season has begun.

Not that it felt or looked like spring. Banks of snow were piled along the sides of the girls lacrosse field at the Pulaski Sports Complex in Riverhead (with the promise of more snow to come) and temperatures were in the mid-30s. Just a few hours after spring officially arrived, Mattituck/Southold and Riverhead ushered in their own season with Tuesday’s non-league game. READ
