Very true, college coaches do not want to go back to coaching high school LOL

So you are admitting you are a disgruntled parent and by all means, please name the coaches.

What coaches have done more with less talent? Seems to me all the teams that have advanced are pretty talented.

Do you have a suitable replacement ? Maybe a coach who was in Syosset's Conference for a few years and now coaches in Suffolk. If you think the nepotism and friends of family at Manhasset is bad Syosset would become a cesspool if that ever happened. So maybe you can clarify who you have in mind.

Keith Cromwell would have taken Syosset all the way with that offense.

When I saw the bleached- headed coaching staff, I immediately thought, is this a team building chemistry thing or do we want to be one of the boys? I know WM's defense is awesome but one goal the first half? Then, after halftime, they come out and can't get anything but outside shots. Their last two goals were at the end of the 4th where the outcome was determined.
I thought the Syosset defense would pressure the ball more and take more chances late 3rd into 4th, being down as much as they were. Try to force a turnover and unsettled situations. WM turned the ball over a bunch and still they couldn't capitalize.

If you take away one player, Syosset scores one goal. You can't win a NYS championship without being balanced on both ends of the field.

Still, many coaches have done much more with much less talent. This guy is way below average. The empty state trophy case speaks for itself.

So the great talent can't get over medicre coaching? Nope team sport try again, talent not as good as you think.

The WM goalie got in their heads early. They only got outside shots because that's what a zone defense gives you. WM was better on ground balls. I'd say the offenses were evenly matched. Syosset's only edge was at the faceoff X. I think sometimes coaches get lulled into a false sense of what there team is when they steamroll everyone. Good teams seem reluctant to use the pick game to get their best players free, because they didn't need to all season. I wasn't overly impressed with Syossets halftime adjustments, if there were any. Also, the goalie staring at a ball during timeouts I felt was silly. Didn't seem to help much.

Calabria can visit Pequa or Farmingdale to hold the State championship trophy. If he wants to wear a ring he can borrow the one OBrien won with Pequa

Enough people! Game over WM was the better team LAST NIGHT! Let's leave the coaches alone and move on! For those graduating seniors - good luck! Good luck to Ward Melville as they head into the semis.

And now they can't seem to process what everybody else had already known. I would have loved to have been at Hofstra just to see the meltdown of the Manhasset parent faces during the last 10 minutes. Delicious.


not very nice or fair of you to be so seemingly jealous of a team with a very grand winning tradition.

Not from that town but i know many of the players and parents. they are very supportive of the game and are just frustrated. that team is loaded with top level D1 talent. clearly the formula is missing an ingredient or the chef needs remediation; but dont attack players or parents or town. There is no need for that


D1 "recruits" that can't get it done in high school. Hmmm...maybe not as "D1" talented as they need to be. Sorry, not buying it. When you look at the list of failures to produce in big spots against better competition, those supposed D1 kids consistently failed to show up. Nothing wrong with the system or coach, the kids just didn't put the big numbers up against the better teams when Cherry needed them to. If they couldn't do it against GC, will be interesting to see if they can do it against Duke, Virginia et. al.


In all honesty if your going to blame the kids, Can you explain what this "system" is?


The same "system" that has resulted in multiple state championships or state final appearances over the past 7 or 8 years. Cherry just didn't have the horses this year. He's working with self centered overhyped kids who have been told how wonderful they are their whole lives and during the meaningless summer circuit but have no real results to back it up. There was no real leadership or toughness on this team - it was all talk by the players and parents before the season even began they were talking smack about a state title - only because Victor had moved up to A. But, when a team like GC or Darien stepped up and punched these over hyped little bullies in the mouth, they fell apart as quickly as I've ever seen. Even if they had gotten by GC, they would have never survived gritty teams like SWR, Yorktown or any tough blue collar team from upstate. Oh well, at least they have their graduation gift beemers waiting for them in the school parking lot.

What's gritty and blue collar about SWR and Yorktown? Don't recall any Stella mills in either place. Just upper middle class good lacrosse towns. Like every other top tier team.

But we're Syosset. If we don't win, there must be someone to blame!

I was tailgating with some friends last night waiting for the class A game to start. The SWR lax team had finished celebrating with their parents and friends and were ready to head home. They walked past the Garden City tailgate and the GC parents started to clap, congratulate them and wish them luck. With all the negative comments posted on here about Towns, parents, coaches, teams etc., I thought it was worth mentioning something positive. Nice job Garden City and good luck to all the LI teams moving on.
