Jack Schirtzer didn’t do anything odd, like accidentally walk into the Shoreham-Wading River huddle. Still, it had to feel strange for Schirtzer, now a member of the Mount Sinai boys lacrosse team, to line up against SWR, a team he had played for less than a year ago.
As he walked onto the field before Tuesday’s high school boys lacrosse game, Mike Taylor was asked if he was ready for the season. “We’ll find out in about an hour,” he said with a grin.
That grin turned into a full-fledged smile by the time it was all over and Taylor’s Shoreham-Wading River team had executed a commanding 13-4 victory in its season opener and Sayville’s home opener. Tim Cairo struck for five goals and one assist and Xavier Arline had two goals (from 13 shots) to go with four assists for Shoreham in the Suffolk County Division II game. READ
