There should be no question about these players!


Best LSM - Sal Pascarella Hills East

GOALS 18
ASSISTS 9
POINTS 27



GOALS ASSISTS AND POINTS FOR AN LSM??? HOW MANY CTO's and GB's? Talk to me about his wing play and defensive prowess not offense, that's the last thing i would use as a barometer for LSM talent.

Congratulations to West Islip on a hard fought & well earned win over Bay Shore today. They did a better job of capitalizing on a few Bay Shore mistakes in the third to mount a comeback and take control of the game. Could argue Bay Shore was the better team for most of the game. Bay Shore controlled the first half 3-1 but could not maintain their focus in the second half with a few consecutive sloppy clears that led to WI goals. Both defenses looked strong throughout the game & both goalies were very good. WI offense found just enough while the Bay Shore attack (2 out of 3 anyway) could not create or finish anything...Good season for Bay Shore, but in the end, and throughout the season; just could not make enough plays, or avoid costly mistakes, in the big moments against the good teams... Good luck to all those teams still playing.

Many play Club my 2019 son has played with 6 of them over the years. Many play on 91 and Express


Most 2020 kids are with express and 91 for Chaminade and St As. These two teams are the best on Long Island, always in the top 10 in the country, some of the best players in the country. If they play 10 times it would be 5-5. Great games for the little guys to watch and learn.


The talent out there for this game was just incredible for High School lacrosse. Fun to watch. After watching many MIAAA games this year. The only MIAA team that would give StA or Chaminade a good game would be Calvert Hall, the rest would be blowouts. .

Plus stats alone do not tell the story of the game & are too easily manipulated. A player tallying 8 points against a weak team in garbage time is not equal to those who perform when needed, or late and close. It would be great to have a service that did stats for all games; some teams are extremely generous with assists and also keep starters in just to pad their numbers.



a "friendemy" of mine would always say stats are always inflated for a certain boy. I would shoo him away as crazy as he is a fanatic. He would say one game he'd get 1 extra goal or assist. Another game game he'd get an extra goal and assist. Many times these points were at the expense of another child, other times just simply phantom stats.

So I was given the videos of the games. WOW, what I saw would be in many schools a fireable offense. So I went to their Whitman game and a playoff game Yesterday, I watched both games first hand and said player (with inflated states) was a non factor and then when I saw Newsday stats. Once again phantom and stolen stats strike agian.

If said player gets 1.5 free stats a game that's 24 points in a season wrong. Some kids dont even get that and this is handed to one kid.

As many may say who cares, we all do. The teacher who taught the kid, who got robbed the stat, will never see his name in the paper and get that feeling of pride when she read the paper wont see . The 4th grader looking at the paper because his mom said read and erroneously sees one kid as a star when it is far from the truth. Or worst when a kid wants to see his name in the paper, because he has only scored once this year but gets robbed. I wouldnt be as bad if it was random kids in random weeks but the same kid every game.

Shady very shady

(I think these two posts are the same team)

Let's also not forget the 3 goals that were taken away from Bay Shore from the referees. If those goals were allowed Bay Shore would have won. It's sad when refs make decisions that cost a team a win. Good job to West Islip and good luck against Smithtown West.

Every game has their issues but Bay Shore once again gets a game stolen from them (Northport and almost Smithtown). It wasn't only the goals which made a difference. There were 2 big calls that still abffle me and video shows it even more so. The biggest shift in momentum came in the 3rd qtr with a phantom interference call on Bay Shore, then still in 3rd at 7:39, the ref's doubled down on bad calls, with a "keep it in" call. They called "Keep it in" less then 1 minute after BS #23 hits the pipe. WHAT REFS CALLS THAT. THAT IS INEXCUSABLE!!!

As for the goals, 2 of the goals were good, one didnt really matter, you scored on the man up! But that BTB shot to end the half, should have counted and would have been big. To end the half, the ball is in the air before the horn blasts, only with the aide of video technology and slow motion can you tell. Still doesnt make it right.

The late 4th qtr goal that was overturned wasnt close. Undisciplined play by the middie took away a goal by the attackman, but had the other plays mentioned not been called the way they were things should have been different.

On Bay Shore goals that were waived off, first on at end of half was so tough to tell in person if shot beat the horn. Refs don’t have luxury of video so it’s tough to fault them on that one. 2nd one in 4th they clearly blew as per Newsday picture, but they ended up scoring right after so it really only cost them 20 seconds or so. And the last one in 4th that was waved off the Bay Shore cutter ran right thru the crease before shot, wasn’t even close. Bottom line is Bay Shore didn’t capitalize on many of their chances and West Islip did on their back half of 3rd qtr. But it wasn’t like refs blatantly robbed BS.

Regarding the dad who thinks his son has been robbed of points every year, you do realize Newsday stats are dependent on winning team calling in stats kept usually by kids doing the score book at scorers table. So if your son lost yesterday, it was the winning teams score girls who you have a problem with and not your sons coach. And I’m sure all the teachers involved in teaching your son will take pride in other attributes your son may have and really couldn’t care less about the about the box score in Newsday. Nor will the 4th grader, trust me. Might be time to rearrange priorities.

Sure is! Just ask Maryland. Incompetent Refs have no place in the game! So Blatant in HS lacrosse. Too many just don’t understand the rules! Terrible!

The disallowed goals were bang bang. If that game was at BS would they have gotten the call? Did BS capitalize no they did not and that is why they lost. So on the push if it was a goal is the push waved off?

As far as a dad who year in and out gets robbed, I know who that is too. It is frustrating and depressing. As a teacher, I always beam with pride when I see my past students get in the paper. As a mom I wished my son's points were "announced" properly.

Bottom line, Bay Shore lost a game against a talented West Islip team. Both schools had their chances, West Islip capitalized on their chances.

As far as stays, yes winning team is responsible for the numbers you see in the papers or websites. But a coach from each team is responsible for signing off the winning teams book, correct?

The dad you mention is passionate for all the boys not just his own. Let's not go there. Had it been him and you know him he would have be steamming about another issue. Many are upset about the issue not the kid. It's very unsportsmanlike and on coaches.
