Great game today. West Islip was leading most of the game. Early on up 4-0 in first quarter. Outstanding performance by both teams especially West Islip. Considering SWR's 1st and 2nd lines are all going D1. WI lost vast majority of faceoffs today. Above everything else this was the difference in the game and cost WI a win. WI looked better as a team, but almost every faceoff they lost. SWR is a stellar team, but I think they were incredibly surprised at how good West Islip is. Many of the kids on WI have been overlooked and are extremely talented players. One thing which was very disappointing was the fact that SWR's security made all West Islip fans leave the visitors stand because "they were too loud" cheering for their team. There was no cursing, etc just good old fashioned cheering. I believe SWR was being spiteful and childish because at that point in the game WI was up 4-0. So apparently if you play SWR on their field dont cheer too loudly because you will be asked to keep it quiet and move off the visitors stand. I think the fans support of WI was definitely making a difference and SWR wanted to remove that advantage, but what can you expect in a world where people are now too soft to hear words they deem "not nice". The old sticks and stones saying no longer applies, especially in SWR. In any event, great game and look forward to the playoffs.

SWR should be ashamed of themselves, not the players but whoever allowed that to happen.

are you saying they threw the WI parent out of the game? or they asked you to move to a different section of the stands?

No sour grapes at all. Both teams played great. I didn’t criticize the game play of SWR at all. I applauded their play. Close game and they won. The decision to remove the fans is a separate issue. If you don’t see a problem with it then that’s a shame. I suppose there are some like yourself who are much more susceptible to being hurt by words than others and prefer living in a police state where people are immediately silenced for voicing an unpopular opinion or cheering for the wrong side.

Surprised WI kept the game that close. SWR is the best team in Suffolk this year. Not a SWR parent (thankfully).

They said if WI fans didn't leave the stands they would be escorted out. They told WI fans to go to the opposite side of the field (away from SWR players) to the left of the main stands. Most were standing next to the home team stands to avoid any conflict with SWR fans. They said the loud cheering was disruptive to their team. For some reason SWR players were on the same side as WI players. Usually on opposite sides of the field from each other. Just to be clear, SWR is an absolutely incredible team. Played a great game. SWR fans, parents, family were also great. No issues. But asking WI fans to leave the way they did was really sad. There were only a handful of WI fans anyway. Very strange.

Must've been the first lacrosse game you've ever watched. Players are always along the same sideline, split by the midfield line. The lone substitution box is there.
Lacrosse, teams are never on opposite sidelines.... NEVER

how obvious can you make it that you are SWR Mom. comical but I will play along. BBP is the best in Suffolk, ESM is 2nd despite the Sayville loss but for now I got to say ESM 3 and Sayville 2
SWR is NOT even in the conversation

In the end doesn’t make a difference in regard to removing fans

Um, so fans were not removed they were simply directed to relocate to different bleachers? What's the problem with that? Big difference between being relocated and removed.

BBP...stop

I am a Nassau parent, not a SWR mom.

I'll accept your opinion that SWR may not be the top team, but to say not even in the conversation is foolish and discredits any legitimacy to your knowledge of the Suffolk landscape.

I’m not making a big deal out of it. The West Islip fans were moved to a different area much further away from the teams because the cheering was impacting the game. West Islip fans cheering was making a big difference in the game and charging up the Lions. I was simply saying that it was a very sad and petty thing to do. Especially when they threatened two expel elderly grandparents if they didn’t leave the stands. If you don’t see a problem with it then that’s your opinion. Perhaps if it was done to your town team you will have a different view.

Why were the parents and grandparents (I can only assume that is who would attend an away game) being so raucous?? These are young adults who have been practicing and competing in a good lacrosse program. If parents need to be "charging up" the team for them to perform, West Islip has a bigger problem on their hands

Maybe the West Islip fans were excited because SWR has been hyped up to be the best team on LI, with national and state rankings, and they have a large number of kids on newsdays top 100 boys lax players. They were excited because they were beating mighty SWR 5-0 in the first quarter. Your asking why they were so raucous? Come on man......its exciting stuff. If the SWR grounds crew needed to move them because things could have gotten a little testy in the shared stands.....good move by them.
