The event, a series of four high school girls lacrosse games at Rocky Point High School, was called Rumble for a Cure, a fundraiser in the fight against breast cancer. It could have been called Freeze for a Cure, given the bone-chilling weather conditions, biting wind and all.

Of course, that didn’t stop Mattituck/Greenport/Southold coach Matt Maloney, whose team played in the second of those games Saturday afternoon, from adhering to his custom of wearing shorts. “No, you got to go with shorts every game,” he said.

It came across as a revelation. About halfway through the last high school girls lacrosse season, Shoreham-Wading River coach Brittany Davis heard one of her players exclaim, “Oh my God, we’re good!”

If the Wildcats didn’t know how good they were at the beginning of last season, they sure do now. An overtime loss to Mount Sinai — its second one-goal defeat to the Mustangs in 2016 — is all that kept Shoreham from reaching the Suffolk County Class C championship game.

In the early stages of the girls lacrosse program at Mattituck, it may have seemed far fetched to imagine that a few years later, the high school would be represented on the sport’s grand stage: the Under Armour All-America game.  READ

Riverhead will have to wait until another day to complete its quest of reaching the Suffolk County high school girls lacrosse playoffs for the first time.

The Blue Waves came close to taking a giant step toward the postseason, but dropped a heart-breaking 10-9 Division I decision at Commack High School Monday afternoon.

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.

With 16 of its players having made a recent class trip to Italy, the Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School girls lacrosse team had not practiced in two weeks. On top of that, the Monarchs are short on precious experience.

As if all of that didn’t augur well for the Monarchs, Elwood/John Glenn was in town to play them in their season opener. John Glenn is a good team, with talents like Victoria Tsangaris and draw expert Amelia Biancardi. READ

Seeing is believing. What the Shoreham-Wading River Wildcats saw through the raindrops on Saturday made them true believers — in themselves.

If the Wildcats were suffering from lagging self-confidence, they certainly received a significant boost that may be worth even more than the power-rating points they earned with their 11-7 victory over Mattituck/Greenport/Southold in a girls lacrosse game at Thomas Cutinella Memorial Field in Shoreham.
