Siobhan Merrill was racing to the goal with no one to stop her, except Elwood/John Glenn goalie Sylvanna Polito. An excellent scoring chance beckoned.

With Polito at her mercy, though, Merrill stunned observers by darting an unexpected pass to a Bishop McGann-Mercy teammate sliding in from the left side. The teammate missed the ball and groans could be heard on the McGann-Mercy sideline.

Excitement was in the air. Spirits were high. And why not? The weather was surprisingly warm — with temperatures in the mid-60s around game time — and a brilliant blue sky provided the setting as the Mattituck/Greenport/Southold high school girls lacrosse team was up for its season opener on Wednesday.
