BLUE WAVES 18, EAGLES 1
The scenario set up like a playoff: One game left in the season. Win or go home.
The Riverhead Blue Waves, after narrowly missing the postseason a year ago, needed a win Saturday in the final game of the regular season to keep their season alive. It took only a few minutes after the opening whistle for the outcome to become inevitable. (more…)

WILDCATS 11, PANTHERS 7
Mike Taylor saw firsthand in 2010 the Shoreham-Wading River Lax Out Cancer event. That year, the boys lacrosse team played the annual fundraiser event, which started in 2008, at Dowling Sports Complex where Taylor was a coach.
When he became the Wildcats’ varsity coach this season, he knew carrying on that tradition was an important part of his new job.

BLUE WAVES 11, TUCKERS 5
The difference in skill level between Leagues II and IV in Suffolk County high school boys lacrosse was clearly spelled out on Monday. Riverhead, described as a middle-of-the-pack team in League II by its coach, Vic Guadagnino, gave League IV Mattituck/Greenport/Southold all it can handle and more in a non-league game.
After scoring the game’s first six goals (two by Austin Fitzpatrick), Riverhead maintained at least a four-goal lead the rest of the way and posted an 11-5 win at Mattituck High School. It was the Tuckers’ first loss of the season. (more…)

TUCKERS 17, MONARCHS 1
His playing time is limited to brief, sporadic appearances on the lacrosse field. Then, once his job is done, he quickly scoots off the field for a substitute, and waits on the sideline until his skills are called for again. And while he is not asked to produce goals or assists, his value to the team is unquestioned.
The face-off man is the ultimate specialist. His job is to win possessions for his team. Nothing else.
Dylan Marlborough does his job quite well, sometimes exceedingly well. Friday was one of those times. (more…)
