Cage Sage I am new to girls high school lacrosse maybe you or someone on this site can answer my questions? First are divisions ability based or school population? Can you list both the girls divisions for 2013 for both Nassau and Suffolk, I have heard that there was a realignment but have only been able to locate the boys. Is there somewhere I can locate this information on the web, it's not available on Sportspak. Thanks for the help in advance.

They play in the power conference during the year and then they go back to size classifications for the playoffs.

Our BOTC take has always been that such edicts are more a sign of weak coaching than anything else.

What's the name of this "Knut Rockne" of lacrosse? Maybe we need to do some investigative checks on "coach" and request appropriate FOIL data?

Can they have you arrested if you go? Maye bench your daughter?
I think my district has banned parents from a first scrimmage, too. Not lax, I don't think (bad memory!), but basketball. Stupid, although in reality a scrimmage is supposed to be akin to a practice and we wouldn't attend a practice... I think some parents went and didn't get the boot, though, if that's useful info. YMMV

. Just an FYI- any one can attend a practice/scrimmage/ game held in or at a NYS public school unless the district has banned them as a result of a violation such as breach of spectator code of conduct policy. A phone call to the BOE sounds like it may be necessary.

not in either district but have gone to W.M. games and I can understand why parents are not allowed. Some parents are very belligerent , I have seen parents punch fences, kick chairs yell obscenities at coaches and refs. I felt unsafe around them and actually moved away from them.

I heard from a parent in the district that the 3 village district had budget cuts and the adopted budget does not include security persons for scrimmages. Any truth to that? Sounds believable because the boys V and JV also had games and no spectators were allowed either. Let us know 3 village people or BOTC.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 03/15/13 11:15 PM
That appears to be the reason.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 03/16/13 02:16 PM
That is the reason. The original budget did not pass. In order to keep sports programs intact, security guards could not be hired for scrimmages. Doing this had the least impact on the kids. Hopefully, our budget will pass this year so next year this won't be an issue.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 03/16/13 08:47 PM
Multi million dollar budget , couple hundred for security..please....the school district is playing you parents. When will you realize that.

It's called emotional blackmail, athletics and all other extracurricular activities (which amount to nothing in the grand scheme of things) are always the first to go. From local school districts to the whitehouse, that's how the game is played...

Beating a team this year should have more weight than beating a team last year , who knows how many kids each team lost

The poster was not knocking the player, they were knocking the coach. I must agree if you are such a good program then why do you need your best player to put up those numbers.

Actually CR was a class act and took them all out for second half. Her star scored all that in the first half looser. They only scored three goals in the second half. That game could have 40-0

It is nice to say that now, come back 4/27. Lets see where you stand then. Better yet, what teams do you think can stay 'Close" to them, who are your biggest challenges?

How does the roster stack up for next year, and the year after that. Ive been hearing about this team for so long, it is so refreshing to hear all of this; yet some how some other team/s you dont hear much about come along and win more.

I would think that Bayshore is the team to beat. More and more parity every year in Section XI. For some of the stronger teams it is becoming more like "any given Sunday." I wouldn't count out WM, WB or WI either. Plus, Northport has a history of choking and doesn't really play as a team.
Saturday, March 30th Results

North Babylon over Mattituck, 16-12
North Shore overtimes Sacred Heart, 14-13
Massapequa edges East Islip, 12-11
West Islip over Rocky Point, 13-10

Highlights

North Shore scored two in the second half of overtime to overcome a one goal deficit for their 14-13 win. Carlee Janelli scored her fourth goal of the game with 22 seconds left in the second overtime period to win it for North Shore (2-1) in a non-conference game.

Kristin Yevoli scored the winning goal for Massapequa (2-1) off an assist from Colleen Bourgal with 25 seconds left in the non-conference game. Massapequa maintained possession for the final three minutes until going on the attack when Yevoli took a pass in front of the crease and finished for the game-winner.

Now that is refreshing, it is early and yes it is "Any Given Sunday" . Sit back and watch them play, one particular lose or win will not make a season until Mid May.

It will be very interesting to see how the teams are doing by 4/27 and who will be rooting for whom (especially those they just rooted against the week prior).

Good luck ladies. Remember win with grace and if you lose, lose with class.

Has anyone seen Bay Shore play this year yet? I have not seen any box scores. West Islip had a nice win over Rocky Point so they must be improved.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 03/31/13 04:40 PM
That statment might be premature because they have not played (Their 1st game against smithtown canceled - but I am quite sure you knew that).

But that scrimmage a few weeks ago was a good indication of how good they are.

How do you define "parity"? Early in the season where non-league action or local towns play preseason league matches, you will see blowouts more often than you will during the regular season. That said, the move to an "ability based league" has emerged on the Nassau (Section VIII) side with the so-called Powerhouse Division.

April1, 2013 Newsday
Girls who run this world: Suffolk lacrosse players of the week

Cortney Fortunato, Northport - Well, Cort-Fort wasted exactly zero time. The All-American had seven goals and two assists over Sachem North.

Hailey Wagner, Bellport - Wagner, only a sophomore, had seven goals and one assist, in a win over Hampton Bays. Shoutout to teammate Courtney Pabst, also a sophomore, who had five and three.

Shelby Fredericks, Babylon - It's entirely possible Fredericks plays lacrosse in God mode. The junior had six goals and six assists over East Hampton.

Nicolette Tortorici, Deer Park - Six goals, four assists...all in a day's work against Islip.

Shannon Abernethy, Rocky Point - There is simply not enough goalie love in the world. Abernethy stopped 15 shots against Floyd...and only three. (Insert Pink Floyd "The Wall" joke here.)

Jamie Ortega, Middle Country - Ortega, an eighth-grader, scored the game-winner against West Babylon and finished with five goals and one assist. It runs in the family: sister Nikki Ortega had five goals and four assists in the same game.

Ashley Gugliuzzo, Connetquot - Gugliuzzo made a stop on on a free position shot with 11 seconds left to defeat North Babylon and finished with 12 saves.

(Canandiagua was last year's NYS Class B Finalists and returned their entire starting core for this season. Certainly, they will be one of the key teams in the Class B title chase this season.)

They are on a whole different level... Unfair to compare them to Public School program anywhere in the US.

Is it true that St. Anthonys lost to Vero beach who had already lost to a Georgia team as well as McDonogh?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/04/13 08:45 PM
St. Anthonys is not the top team, they lost to Vero Beach. Who is not even a top 30 team. Vero Beach graduated a ton of seniors from their team, they lost to Milton Georia whom they have beaten every year.

St Anthonys was far and beyond the best team last year. They will be good this year but not the same. They graduated too much talent. However, I am not sure that there is a dominant team on Long Island this year.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/04/13 08:55 PM
McDonogh is not the same team as last year. They were incredible and would dismantle any team. St. Anthonys was very good, but they are not the same. They just lost to Vero Beach who already has 4 losses.

Some reading regarding McDonogh (Maryland) : National Record - 74th Straight Win as of March 25th. This was followed by a victory over Canandaigua from upstate New [lacrosse]. This team is probably the most traveled "school team" in the United States and certainly have asserted their claim for their #1 ranking.

Let's see how Newsday and the various national ranking polls adjust their settings during the upcoming week. Remember that Newsday is looking at Long Island High School Varsity programs and the loss to Vero Beach might not impose a downward spiral in the local rankings.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/04/13 11:24 PM
It would be crazy for Newsday to not take into account a loss to Vero Beach. Vero Beach has already loss 4 games so it is not like they are a top team.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/04/13 11:40 PM
One thing that you can say about McDonogh is that it is a program. They graduated unbelievable talent and yet they are still the best team. They play a great league schedule and are willing to take on all comers from a non league perspective.

Can anyone confirm if St Anthonys really lost to Vero Beach /florida. I see it posted here that they did lose, but could not find it in Newsday or on any site. Please confirm either way. Seems hard to believe as Vero Beach was supposed to have had its weakest team in years. thanks

News 12 actually covered this game (by luck) with video tape on last night's news - Bay Shore was behind twice in the late second half and again in overtime - came back both times and eventually netted the game winner on a shot from in-close along the right hand side. From the video, it appeared that the players were actually too tired to jump-on the winning scorer!

St Anthonys vs Vero Beach. Heard from one of the St Anthonys parents. Vero Beach was not that good. St Anthonys was up, Vero came back and they got rattled. Vero had two very good players. Coaches did not know what to do. Vero played a great second half and St Anthonys did not have answers. St Anthonys dominated draws and groundballs. M Bill played unbelievably almost single handedly winning the game.

I was at the Boys Bay Shore game today and heard people saying that Bay Shore girls are without a few kids out sick. I do not know which kids but it sounded like they were upperclassman. Anyone have any clue what the deal is? Bay Shore boys won a close one, good game to watch.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/05/13 11:26 PM
It will certainly determine who is better out of those two teams. Not sure what else it will show. Ward Melville already lost to Sayville and Northport aint losing to them this year!

Bill had 7 schools, great player. Vero was done by two came back and owned the second half.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/06/13 11:25 AM
Think there was a typo and you meant 7 goals. Hard to believe that St Anthonys lost. Also from reading that they were up, controlled the draws, and still lost?

Regarding Vero Beach and their four losses thus far this season, take a look at the competition level and the scores of those games.

1. McDonogh, Maryland : Lost 12-6
2. Milton, Georgia : Lost 14-13
3. Conestoga, Pennsylvania : Lost 11-9 in Overtime
4. Georgetown Visitation, DC : Lost 19-18

This roster looks like a team that has been all over the east coast playing or hosting solid competition.

Highlights

Colleen Lovett scored five for Wantagh including the game winner with three minutes remaining in a 14-13 Conference I win over Massapequa.

Micheala Lynch scored the game winner for South Side with four minutes remaining.
Prior to St Anthonys losing, I do not think Vero Beach did anything. The games that lost are not a statement of accomplishment. Losing by 6 in McDonogh's first game and the rest of the teams are typically not top teams.

I thought St. Anthonys had too much talent to lose to a Vero Beach. No idea what went wrong.

Certainly, you can't tell anything about a team unless you know who they played to get both wins and losses. A 20 -0 record and worth a thing if your not playing stiff competition and it goes the other way too.

That makes sense. St Anthonys lost to Vero Beach and win you look at who they played, there are a lot of questions. Vero Beach kills a bunch of weak teams. Loses to Milton who is decent, loses to Conestoga who is not good, and gets beaten up by McDonogh.

In fairness, to use the same logic with St Anthonys it is too early to judge them. They do not play anyone in their league but they do play manhasset, garden city, and SSA. St Anthonys might have fell apart against Vero, but they will rebound as they are better than that. They also have an advantage, when you only have to way about 3 games the entire year it makes it easy to rest kids, work on things, and focus in on the important games.

Garden City scored two in the second half over overtime to stage a comeback win against Darien, CT. Kerry Defliese scored the game-winner with eight seconds left in the second overtime. Jackie Jahelka tied the game at 11 with 2:24 left in the second overtime. Tara DeAngelo's goal with 2:19 left in the second half sent the game into overtime.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/07/13 12:07 PM
I agree with the prior poster. Maybe Conestoga is great this year, they have not been in the past. Last year they had 9 losses and played one top team who easily handled them. Things can definitely change year to year. Unfortunately, Conestoga does not play a top team this year to really judge that improvement. I saw Vero Beach play this year and last year. Without question they were a lot better last year, so were we. It was our first game. We are getting better every week. I can tell you that the Vero parents did not think they were going to beat St Anthonys. They thought that they could beat Milton and Conestoga, but did not think it would be easy as they lost a lot from last year.
Is Darien that good? Or did GC have an off day. Would have expected GC to win by a few. Heard Darien was up almost the entire game.
I'm sure Vero's parents thought they would beat Conestoga and Milton based on last year and pre season but the team is a year older and loaded with top D1 players... That was Conestoga's first game of the year as well. As far as other National competition the team will play Radnor #19 in US right now who just lost 10-9 to Georgetown Visitation yesterday and at the end of the Stoga season they will play Moorestown NJ...Last years #2 team and currently #5 or #6 in the US
Who are the top 5 teams on Long Island this year.

It is done in Nassau County for Girls Lax. 4 Divisions based on strengh of the program and not school size. Look at the scores from Nassau and you will see competitive games throughout.

If the high school coaches in Suffolk had any class they would not pile on Cop. and let the younger kids play. It serves no purpose to shut a high school team out when these kids are trying to learn how to play and don't have the youth program that other towns have or the propensity to play travel ball. it kills me to see scores of 17-0
Go play Northport, Bay Shore and Ward Melville before you pound your chest in victory.

But they refuse to do that in Suffolk. My daughters team plays Copaigue this week. And they are saying: "let's score 30 on them." The coach also told the team: " this is the game that your families should attend." Seriously???? How about against Hauppauge or one of the better teams in the league? Copaigue may lack talent; but heart and desire are indeed present. It is indeed a shame when a coach will condone such unsportsmanlike behavior.

Well said! At least the above mentioned teams won't play against the lower echelon of the league.

We all know that the better way is to build competitive Varsity League brackets based on the previous season with any huge exceptions noted by the High School Coaches.

Some readers might say that this would encourage a Varsity coach to sandbag a season - to "play down" in a lower bracket.

This is where the Nassau (Section VIII) ability based system is a huge step forward. Not only are the league games competitively balanced, but fewer playoff spots are available as you move down the division tables. If the Varsity coach's goal is playoff success, which it should be, a higher league bracket will increase the chances for a playoff berth.

Rather than forcing a .500 record or better for a playoff berth, you could play in a tougher division and still get several playoff victories against lower ranking teams.

BOTC normally just allows the games to play out and we report the results, but the Copiague program is worthy of commentary. So far this season, the results this season stand thus : 18-0, 18-0, 17-2, 17-0, and 17-0. If you follow these scores back into 2012, you will see similar results. Walking into any of these matches, a team knows that Copiague will struggle to score before taking the field. Clearly, what we need to do as a lacrosse community is help Copiague raise their game.

Despite this fairly obvious call, some Varsity programs will just pound the scores as evidenced above. What is the goal? To have Copiague drop the girls program? To put those players into some type of afternoon limbo? Have them miss out on another activity that might add to a college application? Look, these are not going to be Division I lacrosse players, but these might be contributors to a college campus in many other ways.

The Suffolk County lacrosse community should be thinking of ways to help the Copiague program. Since these games are over by halftime according to the scoreboard, how about the other Suffolk County Varsity programs running training drills along with Copiague players to help them elevate their game?

There are some purists that will say "Hey, this is Varsity and it is time to put the diapers away". BOTC understands that perspective.

However, if you want to teach sportsmanship ... if you want your sophomores and juniors to have a college essay topic that truly means something to a community ... if you want to teach what leadership truly means ... now is the time to do something different.

Our question : Which coach will take the challenge? Which Varsity Team Captain will encourage their team to skip the stats padding and help another team?

It won't happen tomorrow; as blood is being smelled. Look at the unmentioned team's last three games. And yet they want to put up 30 on them.

There is a union teacher/ie.Athletic Director who should have to answer the reason why the team is not progressing!!!! Probably since the AD is tenured, and in no way is his performance threatened he either doesn't care or isn't up to the job !!!! The union/school district will protect his job at the expense of the kids trying to learn the game.

Im sure the coach is having no problem cashing the $6,000+ for coaching the team and sleeps fine every night.

That's the problem. I believed that athletics is supposed to be an extension of the classroom. Maybe true lacrosse coaches should coach; not some tenured teacher who was on the third line of JV!

Most of the girls on Copaigue's team are picking up a stick for the first time. It's hard for them to catch up with teams whose girls have been playing since 2nd grade. And yes; the union will protect the job of the coach.

How do you know? Who says that any team wants to humiliate anyone else? Are you parents at practice to hear such nonsense. I doubt it? Would any of you also stop the bench players that never get in from scoring a goal when they finally get a chance?

If I were coach and if the score were as lopsided as Sage stated; the scoring would be done with. Simple as that. No need to humiliate an opponent.

Teenage girls cannot keep anything to themselves. Any respectable coach would not allow his/her team to embarrass an opponent. As karma will eventually occur.

Some of these coaches are friends off of the field. And if one of my friends got embarrassed by a team that my team could embarrass; guess what the outcome would be?

I am a parent of a copiague varsity player and I apreciate the support as it has been a rough year. The copiague girls do not stop when they are down they wasnt to play. A few comments the program is in jeopardy with the school district but why do the boys teams have multiple coaches at the middle school and high school level but the girls get one coach. Copiague also does not have a youth league lacrosse program for the girls (it has been attempted).
As for the 30-0 desire by some teams, it starts with the parents. We recently played riverhead and lost 20-0 the last 5 minutes of the game a parent in the stands was yelling to the girls they should have 25 on the board.

I will posit that stopping the scoring is just as humiliating. Everyone knows what's going on and it becomes a long and boring game of keep-away. An idea I like better is for the winning team to play with their non-dominant hand, switch up the offense and defense so they get a feel for the other position, and clear the bench. Any combination of those things.

This drives me crazy, we have to put in a mercy rule to save coaches from themselves? A game against a lesser opponent where you know you can win by 20 should start off by only scoring lefty that would slow it down just a bit. then play your weaker kids and guess what winning by 10 isnt so bad. Lax coaches are the worst in running up scores always have been always will be. Its not tolerated or done as often in other HS sports.

I truly feel your pain. Title IX will not allow the district to disband the girls program. Call the district on it.

Situations like this make me respect the Northports, Bayshores and WM's of the world as they wouldn't play the lower ranked teams. It really stinks when the "runts" of the league decide to take out their frustration on a program such as Copiague. Tell the girls to keep the faith and continue to strive to achieve. Not every girl will play in college. But this should be an enjoyable experience despite the lack of wins. Wish your daughter good luck in her game this afternoon.

Respect and honoring the game is truly lacking here.

I do not blame the coaches as the copiague varsity and JV coaches have played for very good college teams.The coaches are trying to do alot of work with little support. In copiague it is a variety of issues. No youth league lacrosse. Limited resources for coaches. Coaches send information to parents regarding camps and clinics and only 1 or 2 athletes attend.

I truly feel your pain. I have witnessed your daughter's over the past two seasons. And despite getting the win; they play hard from horn to horn. What really gets me is: the "runts" of the league acting like bullies. Put up 30 on Northport or WM. Oh yeah; they won't play you! This is indeed disrespecting the game. Good luck to your daughter and her teammates.

HS lacrosse is to be enjoyed. Not to be used as a status symbol or fodder to be a braggart. Teams in the lower echelon who act as bullies will indeed get theirs. Leave the foolishness for the club circuit! Oh; I was at the US Lacrosse convention earlier this year. Did not see any representation of any of the "runts" of the league. At least the coaches should have attended.

I agree, start your weaker players and do other things to slow down scoring. mercy rule means weaker team will not get all players in the game. I hear parents say the reason they are scoring so much is college coaches wasnt to see stats (B.S.). As my daughters travel coach states in all his years coaching he has never had a college coach ask for stats and alot of his girls went on to some great colleges. coaches look for alot of different things and belive me humiliating a team or a player is a quality they do not look for.

Thanks for the in-game update. Eventually, one team in Suffolk will rise above the noise and do the right thing. Again, this is not about $6000.00 stipends nor wins-and-losses. This is about helping a community join the ranks of girls lacrosse programs.

If US Lacrosse on Long Island can help launch New [lacrosse] City lacrosse programs to help the game grow, wouldn't you think that Suffolk County's programs and Section XI in general would take up this challenge to do the right thing?

Seriously you take comments meant to support a weaker team and turn it into a rant about the runts of the league. Maybe those runts are running the score up because that is what they have learned from your precious WM teams that are too good to play the runts.IGNORANT

really?

You have such a tough schedule why say such things to make it harder. But go ahead, who else aint you losing to. Looks like it may be tough to get a win in April.

Calling someone ignorant is a feeble attempt to deflect from the fact. The lesser teams are using Copiague as an esteem booster. Many of these teams are one or two players away of being Copiague; so why act as you are a powerhouse? Especially if you are a less than .500 and are 0-fer in league play.

Longwood does get somewhat of a pass. As the coach gave his two collegiate bound players limited minutes and cleared his bench.

I truly feel your pain. I have witnessed your daughter's over the past two seasons. And despite getting the win; they play hard from horn to horn. What really gets me is: the "runts" of the league acting like bullies. Put up 30 on Northport or WM. Oh yeah; they won't play you! This is indeed disrespecting the game. Good luck to your daughter and her teammates.

HS lacrosse is to be enjoyed. Not to be used as a status symbol or fodder to be a braggart. Teams in the lower echelon who act as bullies will indeed get theirs. Leave the foolishness for the club circuit! Oh; I was at the US Lacrosse convention earlier this year. Did not see any representation of any of the "runts" of the league. At least the coaches should have attended.


Seriously you take comments meant to support a weaker team and turn it into a rant about the runts of the league. Maybe those runts are running the score up because that is what they have learned from your precious WM teams that are too good to play the runts.IGNORANT


Calling someone ignorant is a feeble attempt to deflect from the fact. The lesser teams are using Copiague as an esteem booster. Many of these teams are one or two players away of being Copiague; so why act as you are a powerhouse? Especially if you are a less than .500 and are 0-fer in league play.


Are you really this challenged. Your so called powerhouse teams run it up on teams every year yet you continue to have an attitude toward the struggling teams. You sound like someone who's kid is on one of these powerhouse teams but is definately a bench warmer so you get jealous because some kids who you consider lesser than yours get playing time.Many of these powerhouse teams are a couple players away from being middle of the road at best and ride on the backs of their one or two superstars.

Hilarious! Not falling for that bait. You are the one who is literally challenged. I actually feel for the struggling teams. This isn't D1 football or basketball; where six figure checks are cut for cupcake games. There is always going to be large gap between the good and not so good teams. But to be a not so good team and beat up on Copiague is disgraceful. That's my point.

Northport vs. Ward Melville, both teams played excellent yesterday. Melville dominated the first half running all over Northport. Good thing for them they did, Northport took advantage of early second half turnoers by Melville in their offensive end and dominated the half. Melville finally regroups with about eight minutes left. Both Goalies played great in the second half, the Northport goalie made some big stops, but the Melville goalie came up big as well. Stopping three point blank shots by 15 and 22 of Northport in a three minute span. Northport made great adjustments after the first half and almost came back to win. Both teams are very good.

You can't blame the Copiague MS, JV and varsity coaches or the A.D. The root cause for having a very week girls lacrosse program is the lack of a youth league plain and simple. They can't compete against other high schools that have a well run youth program, which also feeds the travel programs. Even with a youth program, if the majority of girls don't play travel, then it's hard to compete against the NP, WM, and Bayshore teams that have 12 plus girls who all have been playing since 1st or 2nd grade and also play travel.

What your density will not let you understand is it's wrong when a team is clearly overmatched yet the better team runs the score up regardless of the strength of the better team.You clearly seem to think that it's more disgraceful when in your words a runt of the league runs the score up compared to one of your so called powerhouse teams.Get off your high horse and you may realize it's equally disgraceful.Your attitude calling teams runts of the league is the same attitude that makes these teams run the score up.That's my point.

two big games yesterday, Melville over Northport and Bay Shore over West Islip. Bay Shore had West Islip 6-1 at half. Always a fun battle to watch.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/11/13 10:03 PM
Ok so I had to see what all this talk about Copiague was about and I was quite surprised at how well they played, listening to the talk on this board you would think they were physically challenged. The Copiague goalie was awesome!!she let up 16 or 17 nut had as many amazing saves. Copiague is a few players short of changing peoples opinions. They need to play as a team number 12 is good but really needs to rely on team mates when there is a 3 on 1, 2 players are open. it was nice to actually hear parents that I believe were from Smithtown W. actually congratulate the (COP) goalie for a great game. Even the Smithtown coaches recognized her talent. This team has talent but they need to be a team. I wish tem well for the rest of the season.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/11/13 11:13 PM
I dont think West Islip is overrated, I think they have some good talent. They need to get out with a strong start so they can play WI lacrosse. East Islip is a very good team and I would not be surprised to see them take out Northport again and Ward Melville. The next week some things will shake out. Some great match ups next week.

How many games do the Md. and Fla. teams play in a season? the Md teams already have 11 games complete and the Fla. team has played 16... could they play over 20 in a season?? if so that goes a long way in building a program and continued success.

Bay Shore is certainly one of the teams to watch as we head into the heart of the season. Expectations will start increasing as we head towards this year's playoffs. Good luck to their program.

BOTC Editorial : Seriously Powderfinger, we are amazed that a twenty goal win would ever appear on the results board in a High School Varsity game.

While Section XI scheduling has proven to be a complete failure, how does any program not respect the game and their opponents? We both know that the unspoken rule from Bayport to Plainedge was six goals in soccer.

What is the limit in lacrosse? When the defense walks off the field? When the keeper vacates the cage?

Odd part here is you will have YJ parents backing up the shannigans going on at northport. Post any comeback you need to help you sleep at night, but there is no justification for the shear lack of sportsmanship, it's what she teaches.

BOTC Editorial : Seriously Powderfinger, we are amazed that a twenty goal win would ever appear on the results board in a High School Varsity game.

While Section XI scheduling has proven to be a complete failure, how does any program not respect the game and their opponents? We both know that the unspoken rule from Bayport to Plainedge was six goals in soccer.

What is the limit in lacrosse? When the defense walks off the field? When the keeper vacates the cage?



Time for Section XI to create a developmental league; just as the PSAL in the city has one. The teams within that league will play against each other only; be ineligible for Sec XI playoffs and will be subject to an annual review of the program.

And for the less than tactful coach; who stated to his team: " you played like Copiague;" after a loss today; totally disgusting.

According to the New [lacrosse] State Public High School Athletics Association (NYSPHSAA), a season may consist of 16 games. A team is required to have 8 practices before the first scrimmage and ten practices prior to the first seasonal game.

A coach got suspended then replaced a few years ago for scheduling one too many. Blame should be on AD as well.

Why would you post individual point totals as most of those goals and assists are in meaningless games against inferior opponents. Why not list groundballs, draw controls and caused turnovers etc... ?

Happy to post those statistics - you have them available? Please send them to us at cagesage@backofthecage.com or post them as a response to this note. (Translation : You can only post the statistics that are available and maintained.

The point was why bother publishing meaningless statistics? No girl would get 8 goals /6 assists in a game between Bayshore vs Northport. Most of these stats happen in very lopsided games.

It looks like no undefeated team in either league in Suffolk has a girl among the points leaders. Looks like balanced scoring works!

Cage ,too funny you post something which most would look at like a nice thing to recogognize some of the girls who are off to a quick start and you will always have people come on and try to tear them down. To the girls on the list keep up the good work and dont let the negative people out there get you down.

High School coaches, field staff, and sectional representatives have absolutely no interest in recording defensive (non-goalie) saves, ground balls, and similar. Both Varsity Soccer and Lacrosse suffer from the lack of defensive statistical recognition.

BOTC thinks that this defensive statistics void is due to the continuing action after a defenseman makes a play. When a keeper makes a save, the transition game goes into effect and a scorekeeper can log that save. When a goal is scored, the players reset at the center of the field. There are natural breaks in the running-clock action.

However, defensive transitions typically do not afford that break in the action. That might explain why defensive stats are just not logged.

As comfort to the parents of defensively positioned student-athletes, we can only offer the old sports axiom : "Offense sells tickets, defense wins championships".

[Linked Image]From our perspective (non-coach, non-parent, non-player), the Power Conference concept has been a complete success.

If you look at the overall records, every team is .500 or above playing outside of these Top 10 Nassau County teams.

That is a clear indication that the competition inside the conference really has some of the strongest talent playing one another.

BOTC would be interested in hearing from parents with players participating in the Power Conference for their perspectives.

With regards to points leaders, how come no one from Garden City, Manhasset,BAyshore, SWR , Sayville is represented on this list? Plenty of great players on those teams.

And as a parent of a defensively positioned student athlete....it is hard to explain to her when a middie gets the accolades over her. Fortunately for my daughter; her team keep track of ground balls.

It's cold comfort when you see your attack/midfield teammates get post-season awards and your skilled defender gets nothing. Not to mention she doesn't get to add that stuff to her athletic resume either. Kudos from the coaches are nice but some official recognition would be welcome, too.

FWIW, I'm trying to track my kid's GBs, CTO's, etc. myself now, just so we have something to put on her resume. Thing is, I don't have the knack. crazy
I forget I'm doing it, or plays happen in a crush of girls so I can't see what happened, and so forth. Asking my player after the game has not proved useful because she's not tracking that stuff in her head, she's busy defending.

This is great lacrosse. The girls become better players. Most games are close, some teams are very strong this season some are not as strong as last year but the level of play has been good. It works that way with coaches also. PLEASE DO NOT GO BACK TO SCHOOL SIZE SO COACHES CAN GET EASY WINS!!!

I've seen in the past blurbs that SWR gives credit to the defenders, so credit to them for doing that. It's a good thing.

Look at Newsdays stats today for the games that are posted so far. Two girls each scored 9 goals, three scored 7, four scored 6, and two scored 5. One game had a 3 goal differential, but two had a 9 goal diff, one had a 10 goal diff and there's EI with a 13 goal differential. Someone explain how that is necessary.

I was at the swr esm game and thought it was a great game. It was 6-6 for a while with no scoring from either side until the last ten minutes of game when swr scored while esm was down a player. Defense was great on both sides. To whomever posted about parents complaining about other players-is this really shocking? happens all the time at every sideline, you probably were in within earshot of an overly boisterous parent as opposed to the mutterings usually under parent's breath. Either way, in light of the boston tragedy, who cares? there are some really wonderful young ladies on the esm team so your comment about apple not falling far from the tree is really uncalled for. great job to all the young ladies that were fortunate to play this wonderful sport today.

Shocking? No; but still inappropriate anyway. If one feels the need to speak in that fashion, save it for home. It gets back to the kids and coach and can affect team cohesion. By the way; speak of someone else's child as you would like your's to be spoken of. It's a matter of respect; an element that is indeed lacking.

As for the matter of respect; coaches can be the biggest violators. Coaches expect and demand total and absolute respect of both players and their parents; yet refuse to reciprocate. A coach does not want a parent to overrule his/her coaching; but will insist that parents "dont' know anything." Or even worse; allow one of his captains to curse ad nauseam during games, at him and his assistant and at players. And to top it off; no action is taken as respective coach is fearful of retribution from the captain's parent. This is not how you command respect at all. Coaches set the tone and climate of a program.

Good luck to all the ladies who are competing today.

Guess again. See my post above about a 13 goal differential. I see this thread as not being club-team based, because <ahem> it is the 2013 HS Varsity thread. Stop trying to stir up that seemingly endless TG vs. YJ crap over here.

Lets talk Girls high school lacrosse. We have some great games this week. Let's focus on teams and players that helped their teams win big games. That is all that matters. It doesnt matter if it's on the offensive side of the ball or the defensive side of the ball. Save the YJ or TG trash talking for another post. High School season is short, lets enjoy it. what are the big games this week in Suffolk and Nassau? I know Northport is playing Hauppauge at 6pm tonight which could be competitive. Bay shore is playing Middle Country which could be interesting but I heard Bay Shore now has everyone back from injury. Ward Melville? East Islip? West Islip? They are your contenders in Division 1. How about Division 2? I hear people talking about Lindenhurst but they haven't played the big guns yet.

Bad job by both coach and director. As far as wannabes, that is a silly statement, any player can play for either club if they "wannabe" a YJ or TG they can be either, very few, if any kids with a check get turned away.

It is obvious that this system of one or two girls doing all the scoring for the team does not work, look at the top 10 teams only one listed has a girl on the leading scorer board. I blame the coaches for this, there are plenty of talented players that can be utilized/ included in the scoring if only plays were set up and the proper time was taken to practice them. It is just easier for these coaches to just sit back and let their leading girl run wild. Another problem with this is unlike club ball you can not switch teams if you are unhappy so you have to suck it up and live with it.

One of the reasons you want to get out of intramurals and get to school ball is to get away from coaches that let a few kids dominate. You hope that the school coach does a better job of working more kids into the offense. Club ball doesnt help this either, everybody is looking out for their own stats these days

Spread the shots out is a great plan but you need multiple high skill level girls to get it done. Let's face it, for some of these players (not all cases) passing the ball away to another player who can't get the job done is not a great option. The good players will pass anyway but many teams do not have more than one or two girls who can take to goal for real. Every team has many willing to go to to goal, [lacrosse] bent, only to get a weak, ill advised, dribble of a shot off in non free space, when well defended (doubled and tripled even). Set plays with cutters and feeders is great lacrosse, but you need multiple players with crisp skills to do it, that leaves many coaches conceding to go to goal mentality. Point is, don't always blame the coach.

But woudn't the perfect time to develop those players be when there is a huge point spread? Why keep the skilled players in, racking up the points, when the win is already in the bag? Who does that benefit? Oh yeah, the player who wants to be the Newsday point leader. Isn't part of the coach's job to develop the players?

I agree. Why is that good teams like GArden City, SWR,Mt.Sinai,Farmingdale, Ward Melville etc... dont have single individuals with high point totals. Maybe they do it becayse they believe in the team concept.... What a novel idea !!!

You have combined two different things here. Someone made a point that all the top point getters were not on the top teams. The thinking would go along that the games are close, and even in a 15 to 10 loss in a winless season, a girl on the losing team can rack up the stats. Your point is certainly valid, hate to see those games where they pour it on, sorta how and where the disussion started going back to Coupaige on one side taking it on the chin and EI and Northport on the other side running the scores up.

Agreed, players and parents think unless they are getting 5+ a game its not enough. Unfortunatly lacrosse which is a beautiful game can also be a very selfish one. The landscape has never been more competitive and that is driving some bad behavier by clubs, players and coaches. Got to get mine...

How about holding Coaches accountable ? The stronger programs are strong for a few reasons. many play travel and many play longer than just the school spring season. Too many of these Coaches ( Connetquot ) don't take the time to develop players on any level. They talk about travel ball, and then back off the actual coaching during games. I witnessed the Connetquot team take a beating yesterday. Many of the school players are on various travel teams. The head coach, who has been there for years, did not coach thru the game. It was a free for all with no team play, no set plays being run and no positive actions from the coach. To maintain your coaching position shouldn't the coach have to meet any standards. Year after year of losing records with no justification is really paying for a losing season. The coach gets paid to stand on the sideline and do as little as possible. Just my opinion

I do not think that any single way is the best way, you have to go with what you have, some very successful teams in the past have ridden on the backs of their best players to win championships while others have used more of a team concept.Watching Garden City last year they relied mainly on a few players, so did west babylon not too long ago.The team concept is great when you have a full team of descent players but when you do not sometimes you need to rely more on your stronger players.If I had Shannon Smith on my team in high school I would have told her to take it to the goal until they prove they can stop you. That being said running the scores up is poor sportsmanship and should not be done, the question is how many goals up in girls lacrosse is safe ? I would say a team should never win by 15 or more and in general if you are 10 goals up its time to put the breaks on.

The idea that a person gets the job to coach because they are a teacher in the district is wrong. There are districts that the teachers have it in their contracts that they get priority for a coaching position over someone who is not a teacher in the district, this is a joke and in no way helps our girls, this should be changed. The better coach should get the job.

I would agree with 10. There is already an "indication" in the rules...the clock runs non-stop with 10 goal differential.
Seems reaonable to me.

Rocky Point for many years had the strongarm on long island to compete against the top 10 rated teams and stay in the top 10 bracket themselves throughout the season , Now they beat up on non competetive teams pound their chest that they have a great roster , and get beat up by the top 10 . The program commitment level just fell off the map and the bad decision making will eventually force another bad season outcome !

They should give the jobs to all the paid coaches and directors of the travel clubs, then they can make it mandatory to pay and play for their travel club or sit on the bench. Oh wait, that's been done.

No, maybe just give the job to someone that has a clue on what they are doing and actually cares. Not the math teacher thats just there to collect some extra money and got the job because they have it in their contract.

The games turned out to be highly non-competitive with Bay Shore taking an 11-4 halftime lead into a 16-6 final score.

Who else aint you losing to? You havnt beaten a ranked opponent. One final question was winning 24-4 worth it?

4/26
That West Islip game is looking very important for you; called it a few weeks ago.


That Ward Melville Bay Shore game, like last year, will not mean much outside of the locker room. Who cares who is 1 or 2. But I hope both of them stay on the same track.

It's true, I just read this on newsday.com

Bay Shore takes over first place in Division I

8:23 PM By Doric Sam

Bay Shore defeated Northport 16-6 on Thursday to remain undefeated in Division I. The Marauders (7-0) jumped out to an 11-4 lead at halftime and never looked back.
“We played hard throughout the game,” Bay Shore coach Allison Pfeffer said. “Our gameplan was to jump out and take the lead so we can control the ball. Northport has a very good attack and we didn’t want them to have the ball.”
Bay Shore now takes over sole possession of first place in the division after Ward Melville lost to West Islip, 12-8.
Kyra Harney led the way, scoring four of her five goals in the first half. Kaitlyn Arnold added three goals and two assists as seven different players scored a goal for the Marauders.
“We were balanced everywhere on the field, on offense, in the midfield and on defense,” Pfeffer said. “We had been struggling to put two halves together and we were able to put a whole game together today.”
The Marauders did a great job on defense, especially in holding Courtney Fortunado to one assist as she entered the game as the tenth leading scorer on Long Island. Dylan Teitelbaum had six saves, and Pfeffer said defenders Perri Baker, Casey Taggart, Allie Dolder and Corinne Schmidt all played well.

I think this was someone stirring. It is nice they are off to a 6 win 1 loss start, but every win you look at who they played and 6 and 1 doesn't look so impressive. They did play one decent team that accouunted for the loss and it was a blowout.

Nike/US Lacrosse Northeast Region Report
by Tom Peace

1. Garden City (N.Y.), 8-0

2. St. Anthony's (N.Y.), 7-1

Even though the Friars suffered an early season loss to Vero Beach (Fla.), St. Anthony's has compiled some impressive out-of-conference wins. Defeating Bryn Mawr (Md.), No. 7 Notre Dame Academy (Mass.) and New Jersey power, Chatham. The Friars have another crucial game on April 27 against national No. 2, St. Stephens & St. Agnes (Va.).

3. Manhasset (N.Y.), 7-1

The Indians took Garden City to overtime, but came up short and the loss drops them in the standings this week. Manhasset still deserves Top 5 status with an 11-8 win over Summit (N.J) and faces St. Stephen's & St. Agnes on April 26. Lindsey Ronbeck has been Manhasset's leading scorer in the past three wins with a total of 12 goals.

5. Farmingdale (N.Y.), 6-1

8. Bay Shore (N.Y.), 9-0

The Marauders earn their way into the Top 10 this week with impressive wins over former No. 6 Northport and Wantagh. Bay Shore is a complete team running on all cylinders right now. The Marauders are looking to get back into the state title picture. In the last four games Kyra Harney has put up monster numbers with 22 combined points.

9. Shoreham-Wading River (N.Y.), 6-1

Notre Dame ran into a buzz saw of a team on April 16, losing 19-9 to St. Anthony's (N.Y.). The Cougars have a date against Westwood on April 30 to try in stay in the Top 10.

News and Notes
Long Island's best take on Virginia's best

On April 26 and 27 the No. 2 team in the country, St. Stephen's and St. Agnes (Va.), goes head-to-head with the Farmingdale (N.Y.) and St. Anthony's (N.Y.).

The Saints are riding a 17-0 record this season and will try to keep the streak going against New [lacrosse]'s best.

The Friars are ranked eighth and the Dalers are 17th in the latest Nike/US Lacrosse National Top 25.

Bay Shore is making the case for Top 10 status

The Bay Shore girls' lacrosse team has picked up from where they left off last season — winning. The Marauders, who are the 2012 Long Island and Suffolk County champions, have been making a strong case to be in the Northeast Region Top 10 with an 9-0 record and a recent win over Northport (N.Y.).

Bay Shore is averaging 12 goals a game so far and hasn't allowed opponents to score double-digit points.

"We always have high expectations and the girls work very hard to meet them," said head coach Allison Pfeffer.

Bay Shore went 19-2 in 2012, though the Marauders came up short in the state playoffs, losing to West Genesee 10-9.

The Marauders have huge goals for 2013, and they are to be a NYS Scholar-All Athlete team, Suffolk champions and of course state champions.

"I always stress [that] hard work pays off in the classroom and on the field," said Pfeffer, who has been coaching at Bay Shore alongside her husband, John, since 1991 when the program started.

The Marauders are coming off a huge victory on April 20 when Bay Shore defeated a tough Wantagh (N.Y.) team 11-7. Bay Shore had three players with hat tricks: seniors Kaitlyn Arnold (Fairfield) and Cynthia Delcore (USC) and junior midfielder Kyra Harney (Duke). Goalie Dylan Teitelbaum (Frostburg State) had nine saves.

Other players to keep tabs on this season are senior defenders Perri Baker (Colorado) and Casey Taggart (San Diego State), junior defenders Allie Dolder (Penn State) and Corinne Schmidt (James Madison). Senior midfielder Amanda Voges (Tampa) and junior attackers Kristen Brigagliano (Colgate), Carly Cox (Colorado) and Katie Kirk (Hofstra).

Bay Shore has high expectations in 2013 and looks to continue to have a winning season with huge upcoming games against Suffolk rival Ward Melville (N.Y.) on April 26 and on May 13 against Shoreham Wading River at St. Joseph's College.

BOO WHOO , we were missing players the refs were against us, the sun was in our eyes Northprt and Yellow Jackets, always an excuse for a loss. How about Bay Shore is a great team and they crushed you. Even if you had all your players you would have lost

Bay Shore crushed NPT and NPT had their full team playing. West Islip beat NPT without the prodigy playing...others had to step up but didn't. Next year will definitely be interesting in NPT.

Why do you obsessive people need to turn everything about YJ, get over it this is about high school lacrosse.Bayshore has been great and in my opinion does not get the respect they deserve in any of the rankings. How do you make it about travel when most of the better teams have kids from multiple travel teams.When it comes to the teams and individual players at least try to keep it positive.

There is not a single player from NPT that plays for another club, to try to distance NPT or CR from the Jackets is impossible , they are linked either for the good or bad so long as CR runs both, No one has said anything negative about any player on either team so stop being overly dramatic. To be perfectly honest NPT/YJ parents always seem to have an excuse for losses, when the truth is Bay Shore is just a better team with a better coach.

The person above was not referring to the Bayshore/Northport game but the Northport/West Bab game and the fact that two key players were out. Pay attention. You would be a fool to count Npt out now. Besides Bayshore the top 6 teams are going to change around before season's over

If you feel YJ must be included in the conversation about high school lacrosse then I would say Bayshores best player is a YJ.

Northport program is going to take a step backwards in the future, they do not have as many playing and will not be able to replace some of the better players who are aging out.

Last time I looked Bay Shore has 5 or 6 players that are/were Yellow Jackets. 3 out of 4 top scorers are/were Yellow Jackets. Harney,Arnold,Cox so not sure what the noise is all about. By the way, if you talk to any of the Bay Shore kids they have tremendous respect for Northport. They also have a number of starters that play for Top Guns, including Kirk, Vogess, Baker, Dolder and another top scorer in Delcore. Goalie is a YJ and so is another starting defender. Not sure about subs. Looks like a pretty good balance. Put the YJ vs Top Gun discussion to bed and talk high school girls lax.

Where did the yj v tg come from? Only mention I see here is from you. I agree someone brought up YJ into the northport loss discussion, which yes, drop club talk on this school ball thread.

That West Islip game is looking very important for you; called it a few weeks ago.


That Ward Melville Bay Shore game, like last year, will not mean much outside of the locker room. Who cares who is 1 or 2. But I hope both of them stay on the same track.

Highlights

Smithtown West 16, Arlington 7: In non-league, regional action, Mackenzie Heldberg scored with 2:31 remaining in the first half to give Smithtown West a 10-2 lead. Heldberg scored seven goals in the win. Jess Meyers made 12 saves for Smithtown West (6-5).

Goes to show you what those rankings are worth. Did you look at the rankings that US Lacrosse mag has in this months issue? It's a total joke and the same can be said of ESPN and MSG Varsity (though MSG is a little better), most if not all those are based on phone calls to a handful of people and they all have an agenda

As most of us were not there, what was the perception of the tryouts, has it been improved, were multiple points of view represented ( ie. evaluators from different clubs)

There were at least 8-10 coaches from all different high schools and club programs. A lot of stations and scrimmages to evaluate the girls. I thing schools and club programs well represented for all teams chosen.

Cage Sage,

Do you have any information how playoffs will be run in Nassau County this year? Does creation of "Super Conf." change things?

Thanks in advance

My daughter went for the 1rst time so cannot compare to previous years. She said it was the most complete try-out she has been to in terms of extent of drills and felt everyone was given multiple chances to show what they can do.She also said it was a long tiring day.I know on the team she made their are girls from several travel clubs and many different high schools.She did say that the club that was most represented was YJ. As far as evaluators she said she thought she recognized YJ, TG, Liberty, Suffolk All-stars and multiple high schools but again felt YJ had the most representation.

Every team in Conference I, the Power Conference, will make the playoffs regardless of their in-conference record. There will be a decreasing number of teams for each conference as you walk down the grid - meaning, for example, seven from Conference II, five from Conference III, and so forth.

Tuesday, April 30th Results

Our Lady of Mercy over Archbishop Molloy, 11-0 (11-0 Halftime)
Sachem North over Copiague, 17-1 (11-1 Halftime)
Sachem East over Floyd, 16-7
North Babylon edges Longwood, 9-8
West Islip over Smithtown East, 15-11
Locust Valley over Friends Academy, 16-9
Bay Shore over Connetquot, 19-1 (15-0 Halftime)
Elmont over West Hempstead, 11-7
Wheatley over Great Neck North, 11-6
Sewanhaka over Valley Stream District, 11-7
Ward Melville over Lindenhurst, 9-4
Half Hollow Hills over Middle Country, 9-6
Island Trees over Clarke, 17-13
South Side over Oceanside, 9-6
Northport over Smithtown West, 16-3
Baldwin over Lynbrook, 12-8
Whitman over Brentwood, 13-2
Eastport-South Manor over Sacred Heart, 8-3
Hauppauge over East Islip, 6-5
West Babylon over Commack, 17-7
Patchogue-Medford over Riverhead, 17-8

Lowlights

This is our first lowlight in some time, but did Bay Shore really need to rack-up fifteen goals in their first half against Connetquot? Was the result of the game somehow in doubt? BOTC appreciates that Bay Shore has not been getting some of the respect that the team might deserve in regional polls until recently. However, we think that while Bay Shore has made the transition to being a top team this season, they also need to control the offense against outgunned opponents. Playoffs are two weeks away - they will have more than enough time to unload offensively come playoff time.

Highlights

West Islip 15, Smithtown East 11: Vanessa Constantino scored five goals and had five assists in the win. Cara Douglas added three goals for West Islip (9-2) in Division I.

You can add sachem north in your low lights category. Sachem North coach nice job considering your team knows what that type of beat down feels like.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/01/13 01:40 PM
They emptied the bench in the first half and coach was instructing girls to pass the ball around which they did for 30 minutes. You are going down the wrong road with Bay Shore, it has nothing to do with stats.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/01/13 01:42 PM
you guys praise individual girls who score 10 goals...look at box score. Very spreadout. Not about stats.

I am not the poster of the original comment and I am not from Bayshore. Be careful about criticizing these young ladies and coaches, especially if you didn't see the game (which I didn't either). First off they only scored 4 in the second half, so obviously they called off the dogs. Connetquot isn't a brand new program and actually has some legit D-1 players. Furthermore what no one seems to take into account is that the better teams usually have some good players on the bench that don't see the field that much. When they get a chance to play they are going to want to show what they can do and have practiced all year for that right. I am in no way advocating embarrassing anyone , but if they took their starters out in a reasonable amount of time and let the subs play and they happened to play well then so be it. They kept the score under 20.

You people are ridiculous , no one said its about stats, but an 18 goal margin of victory is wrong . Try to justify it all you want but its poor sportmanship .When a lower level to mid level team beats up on a beginner team everyone jumps all over them but now that your precious Bayshore team wins by 19 you justify it by saying they did it with back-up players,now thats class.Winning by 15 or more is poor sportmanship no matter how its done or who its done against. Even more pathetic is people coming on here trying to justify it.

I truly feel your pain. Title IX will not allow the district to disband the girls program. Call the district on it.

Situations like this make me respect the Northports, Bayshores and WM's of the world as they wouldn't play the lower ranked teams. It really stinks when the "runts" of the league decide to take out their frustration on a program such as Copiague. Tell the girls to keep the faith and continue to strive to achieve. Not every girl will play in college. But this should be an enjoyable experience despite the lack of wins. Wish your daughter good luck in her game this afternoon.

Respect and honoring the game is truly lacking here.



Where is your outrage toward Bayshore now.

I have none. Connetquot cannot compare to Copaigue. Their program is well represented throughout the club circuit. Bayshore is just that good.

Oh; and I'm a parent of one of the "runts" that I mentioned. And that was truly pitiful of you to bring Copaigue into this.

Didn't see the game but if the above post was right and the coach cleared the bench (in the first half) and instructed the players to pass the ball around... what would you suggest, the refs calling the game... or maybe your that wiseguy parent that would say they should have played 3 girls down for practice.

To honor the game is to play the game, there is a fine balance of shoving it someone's face and playing/honoring the game.

Bay Shore has had a fine reputation of playing hard nosed girls lacrosse. Something they worked hard to build. They respect the game, honor their legacy and hold a high standard for their academic achievements.

Anyone not from BS that was there feel free to chime in.

Nothing wrong with the above statement; I wish my daughter's program had those qualities. But no; they are looking forward to the senior game. A game of which they will probably lose and finish the season at 4-12. Which will make at least the fourth consecutive year with at least 10 losses.

TU, best of luck in these last few games for your seniors and the rest of the squad.

YW. Good luck to you and your ladies as well. Reclaim that State Championship for Long Island.

My question to all of you; how can a program embrace such a culture ineptitude? And with the current state of affairs; the losing will continue. And yes; this is varsity level, where the emphasis is based on winning versus losing.

Sometimes not "playing" the game as intended is more disrespectful to the other team. Winning by 20 will always appear to be running up the score, but you always have to consider the following:

1. Back-ups, bench players and junior players will always want to impress the coach, their teammates, friends and the other team (you would too). They should be told to slow it down, but they are going to shoot eventually.

2. Holding the ball for enormous periods of time tells the other team you are pitying them (and that is far worse than getting beat badly).

3. Any coach will tell you that it is their defense's job to stop the other offense -- it is not the job of the other team's offense to stop itself.

So, is winning by 15+ goals bad sportsmanship, or not? Depends on the game, and the teams involved. I suspect that if a team wins by 15 or more, they probably could have won by 20 or more. If they were passing a lot, cleared the bench and slowed it down, then they showed good sportsmanship regardless of the final score. I am sure the losing team would agree.

In my district, I lay the blame on the hiring practices. Any teacher, with or without experience, will get the job over a non-district employee regardless of the outsider's experience or track record. Then the AD turns a blind eye to the losses piling up season after season. We just came off a season similar to what is referenced above, albeit a different sport. It is completely disheartening, and talk about a bunch of players counting down the minutes until the end of the season. SMH

How about some hard passes to the goalie, she makes the save and then you work on your transition and defensive game?

My daughters team has been on both ends of the score. What makes me crazy is in the games where we have a big lead, the coach puts in players and then tells them not to score so that we don't run up the score. Why not put them in when we have a decent lead so that they can score a little and if the game starts getting closer, put the starters back in!
Wednesday, May 1st Results

Hicksville over Hewlett, 17-11
Mineola over New Hyde Park, 17-15
Glen Cove over Great Neck South, 15-8
Glenn over Center Moriches, 9-7
Malverne/East Rockaway over West Hempstead, 16-8
Manhasset over Massapequa, 14-8
St. John the Baptist over Kellenberg, 10-6
Floral Park over East Meadow, 11-10, Overtime
Portledge over Chapin, 15-6
Calhoun over Carle Place, 14-7
Division over Bethpage, 14-7
MacArthur over Herricks, 8-4
Babylon over Mattituck, 16-5

Highlights

Manhasset 14, Massapequa 8: Lindsey Ronbeck had three goals to lead Manhasset (7-1) in Conference I.

Floral Park 11, East Meadow 10: Jocelyn Penteck scored with 12 seconds left in the second overtime. Kayla Buzzeo scored with 49 seconds left in the first overtime to tie the game at 10. Penteck sent the game to overtime with a goal with under a minute left in regulation. Penteck scored six goals for Floral Park (5-3) in Conference III.

My daughter's team started planning the tribute to the seniors during the pre-season. Most knew that the season was going to be bad and began going through the motions. Things are truly bad when half of the team shows up to practice. The coach should turn over his stipend. Three of the girls; who have been on varsity since grade nine will have endured seasons with losses of 15,14,11 and possibly 12 respectively. And the losses will pile up. And no one seems to care. There was a time that an athlete was proud of their membership. But with this team; pasta parties and twitter foolishness. Maybe there will be a turnaround ; I doubt it though. As long as the incompetence within the coaching staff and backstabbing parents remain; the program will languish in the bottom of the standings.

Give me a break , get your head out of Bay Shores back end. Playing / honoring the game ,please who do you think you are. All you morons try to comprehend a semi bad team crushes a very bad team by 18 is the same as a very good team crushing an okay team by 18 .Bayshore holds a high standard for academic achievements , seriously are you that clueless, compare your academic standards to Ward Melville or cold spring harbor.Any team that wins by 18 is just plain poor sportsmanship ,if the coach could not tell they had a complete mismatch on their hands at 5-0 then they are clueless, or just a jack---.

Hear, hear! Nothing worse than a blowout, no matter which end you're on. Those games are like watching paint dry. Painful paint because it's not easy to watch.

What I've been selling for years (and no one is buying) is to have the girls play their non-dominant hand (everyone needs work on that), and/or switch up the offense and the defense (go ahead, see how the other half lives). That way the winning team is still working and the playing field becomes more level. You can always revert back to your starting lineup and positions if the game gets too close for comfort.

So you call people morons and jack*** and we are suppose to give some credability to what you say. I am sure the person was refering to the coach holding the kids to high academic standards and if you knew anything about the coaches, you would know they put more emphasis on the classromm then the playing fields. What other coach in Suffolk or Nassau looks at the kids daily progress reports and makes everyone of her players go to extra help until they have an A average. keep you comments to yourself.....loser! By the way, I coach.

They need to reorganzie like Nassau did. There is no way you should have top teams playing teams that struggle. Its not good for either team. This is just as bad in the B and C divisions. Babylon playing Hampton Bays? Really??

I will start with maybe you SHOULD try to Honor the game and it players and maybe then this will all make sense to you; until then I will not judge you, that is not my job. (that is who I think I am).

I say good on ya' and congratulations to BS WM and CSH (and any other team) which holds high regard to their academic standards.

The AD's fear the union. What they forgot is; that a coach's won- loss record can be used as cause. Fire the bums and let the union whine. Funny thing is; there are coaches who truly believe that they are good at their craft, but the losses pile up and have the audacity to blame the players.

How about you going to coaching clinics, reading a few books, etc. But your stubbornness will continue to hinder the growth of your team; especially with the ladies who aspire to play in college. Coaches like this need to step away and never look back. Go work at Walmart if you need extra income.

Bay Shore has had a fine reputation of playing hard nosed girls lacrosse. Something they worked hard to build. They respect the game, honor their legacy and hold a high standard for their academic achievements.

Anyone not from BS that was there feel free to chime in.

And your point of this rant is? You are acting like the nouns that you used.

Folks like you are what bring a negative light on lacrosse....especially on the girls' side. None of our ladies are going pro as players....so chill out. "Book money" isn't worth the stress.

Two huge Suffolk Class A games today..

1) BAyshore at East Islip

2) Northport at Half Hollow Hills

Both should be great games...

Bay Shore has had a fine reputation of playing hard nosed girls lacrosse. Something they worked hard to build. They respect the game, honor their legacy and hold a high standard for their academic achievements.

Anyone not from BS that was there feel free to chime in.

Give me a break , get your head out of Bay Shores back end. Playing / honoring the game ,please who do you think you are. All you morons try to comprehend a semi bad team crushes a very bad team by 18 is the same as a very good team crushing an okay team by 18 .Bayshore holds a high standard for academic achievements , seriously are you that clueless, compare your academic standards to Ward Melville or cold spring harbor.Any team that wins by 18 is just plain poor sportsmanship ,if the coach could not tell they had a complete mismatch on their hands at 5-0 then they are clueless, or just a jack---.


And your point of this rant is? You are acting like the nouns that you used.

Folks like you are what bring a negative light on lacrosse....especially on the girls' side. None of our ladies are going pro as players....so chill out. "Book money" isn't worth the stress.


I believe the point is that winning games by 15 or more against obviously overmatched teams is poor sportsmanship and I happen to agree.

Who are you to arbitrarily decide that 15 goals is poor sportsmanship? So 14 goals is OK? How about 11? I am sure people out there would say 8 goals is bad. My point is you can't just pick a number. It really does depend on the game. A coach can play his starters for five minutes, and then play all her reserves for the remaining half, accumulate a huge double digit lead, and then instruct the kids to not even go to goal in the second half. Is that bad sportsmanship, to actually let the reserves play a good part of the first half, and then completely shut it down in the second half? I don't think so. Again, it depends on each game

Unless and until some governing body decides to step in and rule on this, it is anybody's opinion what constitutes running up the score. That poster choosing 15 is not wrong, it is her/his opinion. I think the situation you cite is pretty unlikely and I'd rather err on the side of probability than not when choosing a number, therefore I agree that 15-up qualifies as running up the score. My opinion.

I kid you not----coaches have accused other coaches of bad sportsmanship when coaches work the ball around to avoid running up the score. You just can't win.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/04/13 12:23 PM
ok, I have no outrage against Bay Shore they are a great team and when my daughters Copiague team played them in middle school it was a good game and yes we lost but were not embarrassed. I personally went over to the coach and complimented him and his team on the class they had and made it a respectable coach. From that day I have been a Bay Shore fan. I believe sometimes you can not stop a player from scoring.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/04/13 12:33 PM
it is a double edged sword. Why doesn't a coach start his weaker players and rest the good ones when he knows the other team is weaker. I believe Walt Whitman did that against Copiague this year they still won but it really did not look that lopsided and weaker players got to score and improve their game time skills.

Correct me if I'm wrong....but isn't and stick to head contact warrant a card? I and most of us here know the answer is yes.

With that said....the official at Longwood v Smithtown West game who called a charge on the Longwood player....when it was clear to all that the SW player made stick to head contact....then had the audacity to threaten to card the LW player when she questioned your call whilr holding her head.....you should have your certification revoked. Personal agendas are not part of an official's job description.

Stick to head contact does not always warrant a card as in when the offense player gets called for a charge and the offensive player initiated the contact. For a long wood parent to come on here and complain about aggressive play is comical

I have no problem with a kid scoring all they can if it is in the context of helping there team win but when done in a blowout that coach should be talked to by the AD .That being said I have seen that team before and they have way more goals than assists and barely work as a team.

You are one of the parents who make going to the games both sad and comical, yelling at the refs about calls when you clearly have no idea what you are talking about.Are you that stupid that you thought I meant a player would intentionally initiate head to stick contact, so with your logic the SW player must have intentionally hit the LW player in the head with her stick and actually deserved a red card.Sometimes the offensive player forces their way thru defenders sticks and or body at which time stick to head contact can happen and a charge gets called. In my opinion they do not call enough charges and make playing defense in the girls game difficult at best.

Yes the coach is mostly to blame but give me a break any kid who has the maturity to play varsity lacrosse knows that for a player to continuously go to goal in such a lopsided game is ridiculous and I guarantee the other kids on the team thought it ridiculous also.If her parents were at the game they should have told her enough is enough and if I were a parent at that game I would have had no problem letting them know that it's poor sportsmanship.

Stick in the sphere is supposed to be an automatic yellow- not on a charge- I have seen so many sticks to the head that it is ridiculous. Girls are going to get hurt. Refs this season have been horrible. One of the worst head hacking team has been WHB- they start losing and want to injure people

An intentional stick to head should be a red, redding girls game is not easy
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/05/13 02:17 PM
You really think a coach is going to do that after suffering their first loss of the year against Melville. Please, you are not thinkning logically. They came out running and gunning and then shut it down. Enough said on this topic, lets focus on the other games. Perhaps your rant should be about Bay Shore playing 2 players down for almost the entire second half and 3 players down at one point. Watched the game on MSG varsity, I was not there, 2 of the 6 yellow cards were legit, the rest were bs. By the way, my niece plays for West Bablyon so I want nothing more then to see us beat them. But you need to be objective. West Babylon will surprise in the playoffs. By the way Cage sage....you started this whoel thing...Northport hammers HHH and Firtunato has 12 points, at what point is she on the side line? Just a point.

Funny how it always comes back to Northport...and Apuzzo (since we are naming players apparently) had 12 goals during their beat down of Floyd , no assists mind you, it's all about the goals... But that's alright I guess...at least Fortunato has assists. It's a team sport isn't it?

I have been to numerous sporting events of all sorts....and fans and parents alike will often have an issue with officiating. Why is it that Women's/Girl's have such a problem with such. I have never seen an official reverse a call due to the fans are riding him or her.

And calling me stupid is really mature of you. And cowardly.

twice my daughter has taken a stick to the head and I hate it!!. The first time no card was given and she was called for a charge as much as I hated the call the ref was correct as My daughter went in for the goal which was a charge, she was not happy but after the game the referee explained it to her and she told me that she was wrong after his explanation. The second time was last year against riverhead which was blatant and she had to be helped off the field. The riverhead coach went to the penalty area and high fived the player and said you stopped her from scoring. I was mortified and told the coach how I felt. After the game the ref advised me if he had heard that the coach would have been removed from the game. The refs have a lot to pay attention to and sometime se see things differently. I can see why you were upset over stick to the head but if you charge it is an offensive mistake. I just hope the player is OK. some rules my need to be reviewed

Got Loose!!!???
If there were no knots on the strings and she had them heavily greased I don't think that they could get that loose.

Almost every game this season I have seen stick to head with just a "go behind". In the last game we played the other team kept swinging sticks over head trying to check from behind. Unfortunately they arent going to call it until they knock a girl down. Refs dont understand if player gets away with it they will continue to do so. if you make penalties for sticks to head tougher maybe girls will re-think it.

She is fine. I understand if there is additional contact, then a charge can be called. But in this case; the only contact was stick to head. The good thing about all of this is.....two more games then off to college....at least stick to heads are taken more seriously there!

Katherine Zisis, Nassau girls lax Players of the Week

Monday May 6, 2013 2:57 PM By Stephen Haynes

Photo credit: Steve Pfost | Roslyn's Katherine Zisis (May 4, 2013)

As always, email me or @StephenHaynes4. Now, let's get right to it.

Katherine Zisis, Roslyn: In one of the more touching sports-related scenes you’ll see, Zisis, a senior with pulmonary stenosis and development disability, scored a goal in her first varsity appearance on Saturday. Zisis has been the Bulldogs’ manager for four years and, in Roslyn’s last home game this season, she was cleared to play. She entered the game at low attack and scored in Roslyn’s 13-8 win over Wheatley. Kudos to Wheatley, too, for being classy and compassionate.

(Note: An additional +5 to Zisis for throwing the deuces up all swag-like during the player intros.)


Morgan Jaycox, St. John the Baptist: Technically, not a Nassau team, but I can break my own rules... She had six goals, four assists and four draw controls in leading St. John the Baptist to the program’s first ever win over Sacred Heart, 18-7, on Friday. Hard to imagine that they’d never beaten them before, especially since they’re in the same league and play each other so often, and SJB coach Janine Pirone said the Cougars have had girls lacrosse for “at least 12 years.” That's something.


Colleen Lovett, Wantagh: Lovett’s been doing what she does, but a performance like this makes ‘em take notice: she had 28 points in three games last week, including eight goals and three assists in a 20-13 win over Plainedge on Thursday. When, in a high-scoring game, you contribute to as many goals as the opponent totaled, that’s not bad.


North Shore’s defense and Alexis Greene: The Vikings defense was stifling and goalie Alexis Greene made 12 saves in a 12-3 win over Long Beach on Thursday. Any time a defense can hold a girls lacrosse team to three goals – a Conference I team that isn’t a pushover, at that – it deserves to be commended.


Julia LoRusso, St. Dominic: In her first game in three weeks, LoRusso had four goals and three assists and scored the tying goal with 31 seconds left, and the winner 20 seconds later in a 22-21 victory over Carle Place last Monday. She also had three goals and three assists in an 11-8 win over St. Mary’s on Friday.


Jocelyn Penteck, Floral Park: She had 12 points in two games, including six goals in a win over East Meadow. Penteck scored the tying goal with 49 seconds left in regulation and the winner with 12 seconds left in the second overtime of the 11-10 victory.


Jackie Jahelka, Garden City: The senior excelled last week, despite coping with the loss of her grandfather. Jahelka scored three goals, including the winner in a 13-12 overtime thriller against Farmingdale on Thursday. Saturday, after attending the funeral, she had four goals and an assist in helping lead the Trojans to a 19-15 overtime win over Cold Spring Harbor.


Erin Vaughan-Ware, Sam Santeramo and Caitlyn Buckley, MacArthur: The Generals have been on a nice run of late. Vaughan-Ware, an eighth-grader, scored three goals in both of the Generals’ wins last week, and the freshman Buckley had three goals and an assist in an 8-4 win over previously undefeated Herricks. Santeramo had 12 saves in a 10-9 overtime win over Mepham, and 15 saves in the win over Herricks.


Cate Soccodato, Our Lady of Mercy: She’s still going. The sophomore attack had 19 points in two games, including five goals and eight assists in a 16-4 win over two-time defending CHSAA Class A champ St. Dominic. That’s a statement performance in a statement game.


Gabby Morrocu, Glen Cove: She’s been scorching the net lately. The senior has scored 24 goals in Glen Cove’s last three games, including a career-high nine in its 15-8 win over Great Neck South
[lacrosse] has frozen over, North Shore's defense was mentioned as a player of the week. Nameless, but mentioned. Progress!

Yes Westhampton did crush Hampton Bays but at least it seems the coach or kids themselves did impose some limits on individuals . Still not sure if the 20 goal margin is needed but IMO as long as its not a few kids running up the score then what are you supposed to do.

A question....do you believe Whitman locked up the 12 seed with the win yesterday....or can they be taken by Smithtown E. with a loss?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/10/13 09:14 PM
Great question being they play each other monday... but even a win will be difficult for SE. According to points a good SE win will probably have them end up with about 109 and WW 110. So it will be close.

Good luck to both schools.

Hey Islip you should be very proud, your team is bad so you run it up on a team that is even worse. Even more ridiculous is you have a couple of accomplished players who run it up to pad their stats, nice sportsmanship ,your program ,your coaches and your better players should be real proud of themselves, and the parents of those players should have pulled their own kids off the field.

Two points of interest:

1: The dirty tactics on defense are out of control. Players are using butt ends of their crosse, using their hips and legs to slow attackers down, and pushing in the back until they get called for it. I know the officials can't see everything; but one should at the minimum observe off ball play. Some players just lack the skill to play cleanly; fault of coaches to develop players.

2: Thin skinned officials. Emotions will run high during this seasonal point. Someone has to be logical. To card the coaching staff this late in the season makes no sense. A stern warning should have been suffice.

Good luck to Whitman on Monday and in the playoffs. Your goalie is a beast(in a good athletic way!)

Sure. A parent should start screaming at their own kid during the game while the kid is playing and force the kid to stop playing. Please. Get off your high horse or soap box or whatever your standing on because you sound ridiculous.

If the coach specifically was running up the score, blame the coach.

Stop with the nonsense, kids who play varsity lacrosse should know better , when you are crushing a team who is clearly out of their league you should not have your best players running the score up. Little kids playing pal even know this.It's about time some of these superstars show some good sportsmanship on their own and stop blaming the coach,22-3 is "ridiculous" and even more "ridiculous " is that your better players scored the majority of your goals. Let me guess some of the goals were show off unnecessary behind the back type shots. If your coach does not teach your kids good sportsmanship maybe you should.

Poor game by officials who only called 1 charge on the girl who continued to dangerously run through defense with extended stick. Way to keep the integrity of the game Joe.

we have same problem in suffolk, kids scoring 9, 10 goals against very weak opponents. when they play a competitve team they score 2 or 3. they pad there stats against weak teams to stay in top ten in scoring. and look at there stats 80 goals and 5 assists. this is bad sportmanship, selfishness and bad coaching when you beat a team by 10 and have a kid score 10.
Saturday, May 11th Results

It's not nonsense. The scores have been lopsided across the board all season and we are all sick of it. We want alignments like Section 8.

Even worse when there are no consequences by coaches for those who completely ignore them. No team chemistry is what occurs when there is no passing. Is that what you want coaches?? My daughter is a junior and has accepted that year after year nothing changes with the chosen few who play the whole game. Coaches yell and the girls smirk at each other and dismiss them because they know they won't be pulled off the field . A disgrace to the girls who work hard and pass the ball. Try to teach a little integrity and humiliation to them! Try going over a tape against the team younare facing instead of nonsense conditioning! Play your hungry players who PASS the ball and sit the chargers or put them on defense! Make a difference this year with the new talent and watch what happens. I have been around long enough to see from an official point of view you have some young smart players-now use them! Good luck Generals, from an old guy who hopes things will finally get better.

This is insane- all I keep hearing about is keeping integrity of the girls game but clearly hs coaches dont realize [lacrosse] some families laugh at them for their inability to bench selfish players!

Too funny ,some of these kids who are on the list for most goals scored have under 10 assists.They should have an award for the kid that has the worst ratio of goals scored to assists, the award can be called daddy's girl.

If they are laughing it is only because the only other option for them is to CRY. The system is broken. The AD doesnt care and until people are hired for coaching postions because they are the best candidate and not employees of the district this will continue. The coaching in girls high school lacrosse is terrible, most parents feel if these were club teams they would switch teams, but we are stuck with these teams and these coaches.

You have kids on the list with essentially a 12 to 1 ratio of goals scored to assists.I can only imagine what those games are like , we have a player like that, if you pass the ball to her you can be sure you will not get it back.These kids lead their teams in goals and charge calls ,lol.Amazes me that any coach would tolerate this or for that matter other kids on the team would tolerate.

Same nonsense in Girls HS Soccer. Wasteful practice sessions on "conditioning" where they should be working on game strategy, positioning/spacing and the game of possession.

It is an embaressment to see opponents pass the ball like a team and our coach allow the same 2 girls charge the net every time they get the ball. We will lose our playoff game Wednesday as a result of bad coaching- Its sad when they laugh about the coaches in school and talk about not passing the ball because they know nothing will change.

I have seen this coach on a couple of occasions. If past experience is an indicator, he most likely deserved it. The time of season is irrelevant. With this time off he can study his rule book!

Reread what I wrote.....coach was defending the dirty play of the opposing defender against his attacker. I was at the game and one certain defender did and has engaged in dirty play all season long....so this coach's rant was warranted. Tuck in the RABBIT EARS and play on!

Simple. Finish the season ranked thirteenth in Division I in a playoff system with only twelve seeded spots. If that formula holds, they are the odd-man out.

Whitman has not beaten one playoff team and they are still on the bubble with 9 wins. The best team they beat had 6 wins, all the rest had 4, 3, 2 , 1 or 0 wins. Its not their fault however if they did play a more difficult schedule they would not be anywhere near the playoffs. They are doing what has to be done, they are beating teams they have to beat.

Teams that dont have much talent, have to play aggressively, only way they have a shot, so the coaches are maximing the ability of the team.

I am not sure if Smithtown East beats them today, if they have enough points to edge Whitman out, but they do have more quality wins than Whitman.

My guess is Whitman loses, still makes the playoffs, which leaves everyone wondering if the system works. Unfortunately Whitman will lose by 15 in the playoffs if they make it.

Just looking at their schedule/results... Losses to Commack, Lindy and WH and not beating any of the "top echelon" teams hurt them. They had to win all the games they were supposed to plus at least one other significant win... My estimation, Commack loss is the big reason their season ends today.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/13/13 08:33 PM
look at netplay there are points are on their under standings. I haven't seen a 10 point swing in a contest where the winner received 5 quality points and the loser lost 5 points.

I guess we will have to wait until manana.

Some clarification with regards to the Whitman coaches red cards. After the Whitman player received her red card (she was being roughed up without calls, but no excuse for her rage) the assistant coach received a red card. That's it. No other cards issued.

However, when an assistant coach gets a red card, the head coach must leave also. Both coaches must sit out the next game. I clarified that with the referee after the game.

The assistant who got the red card is the most mild mannered man. he tried to protect his player and walked on the field. Red card. There was no bad language, poor sportsmanship at all. He walked onto the field. The head coach was not directly involved at all.

This is this coaching staff's first year. I'm not sure what "past experience" you are alluding to.

I have to say this system is wrong if Whitman makes the playoffs and Smithtown East is left out. Smithtown has 2 wins against what are now considered playoff teams (Sachem East and Whitman) while Whitman has NOT beat anyone in the playoffs. East beat Whitman yesterday which should put them in front and in playoff position. Yes Smithtown lost to Commack a non playoff team, but if that is what is keeping them out, Whitman lost to East which as of now is not in the playoffs.

Middle school coach got a red card last week and coached the next game. District knew about it and it was all over social media sites. Varsity no different, my older daughter angry the coach uses the same girl who never wins a draw and 2 defenders from last year are now on offense where they should not be. Sad for the girls that take it seriosly

Pitfalls of an unbalanced schedule. League I is too big. Split into sub divisions and go with a straight record.

They got the benefit of a good bounce this year, last year they didnt. It all works out in the end. Good for them they made the playoffs, should have in fairness been Smithtown East, but Whitman did all th teams they should have beaten and East had a bad performance or 2 mixed into some better results.

They may be in the playoffs, but they still are not the Force that the Sachem faithful boasted about at the start of the season. They were handled quite easily by Ward Melville yesterday.

Maybe so. Not sure where you were getting the 13th place. It was never an issue that they wouldn't make the playoffs. Don't see them going too far.

What makes me think they can beat a playoff team? They already did during the season, 2 to be exact. Can the same be said for Whitman?

ok really why pick Commack , they beat Copiague easily but had enough class to not shove it in their face. The Commack coaches and players have a lot of class unlike the riverheads in LAX or any other sport. Kudos to the Copiague girls it was a tough season but they at least played hard all game every game. I want teams like Bay shore and Whitman to have success the players on those teams have class and if Commack was in playoffs I would wish them well also

Bay Shore? Are you joking? Dirtiest team on LI. Illegal sticks galore. Illegal stick, head and body checks galore. I hope whoever plays them calls for stick checks and is lucky enough to have a decent ref...fat chance!

Bay Shore lost to Ward Melville in great part due to seven yellow cards which let them play two girls down for over 13 minutes.

They're taught to play that way. It all falls on the coach.

you guys are kidding me with the Bay Shore and Yellow Card comments. Watch the tape, two of the cards were legit. two were for shooting infractions only one was from a defensive player. It is laughable how its easy to hate a winner. Focus on the positive and how to get better not on why the dominant teams continue to play hard and win. MT Sinai, Shoreham, Bay Shore, West Islip, Northport, Ward Melville, East Islip, ESM are all teams that play hard and play to win. I bet you tie your kids shoe laces too....

By the way, if you knew the Bay Shore coaches, you would not say that. They coach with class and follow the rules.

they lost in great part because they engage in a style of play that deserves these multiple cards.

I think I have found a winner in the I do not pass the ball award.Actually curious but there is a player who I have been told by teamates dad that when she gets the ball rarely passes.He made it seem so bad I looked up her numbers and found her to have a ratio of over 12 goals for every assist.Is there justification for this type ratio, ie. she is a crease player.Granted my research has not been much but that ratio seems way out of line with a team sport.Not a very good team so should that type of selfish play be accepted by the coaches.I realize college coaches do most of their recruiting in the summer but knowing those numbers is that something they want to see or not.

Very easy to see: look at scoring leaders on Newsday.com compare total points to goals and you will see right away...believe me college coaches are not impressed with those kind of stats. They want to see a nice ratio of goals to assists.

And college coaches who take a risk on these types of players regret it. There was actually a study done on this 4-5 years ago and many do not make it past freshman year.

not trying to knock any team or style of play but a team does not have to play as physical as has been suggested here to be dominant. I have had the oppurtunity to watch a team that many believe to be the best on the island play 4 times this season and did not witness the pushing and stick swinging that goes on in other games.

I looked. Eye opening. Of the top 15 goal scorers, only 6 were on the assist list. The top 3 goal scorers were not listed.

As an intersting side note, I saw what I presume are sisters listed, two sets where one is the goal scorer and one is the assister, but no way of knowing if the assister is feeding her sister. I would imagine yes.

As for what a college coach is looking for, a hard-nosed goal-scorer or a more rounded team player willing to assist as well a score, beats the [lacrosse] out of me. I'd like to believe the latter. I'd be curious what the more experienced lax parents have to say from their experiences.

That said, it is also true that a team with less talent might up the checks, bumps, pushes, etc. I've seen that happen, too.

Big difference between being physical and swinging sticks. I have no problem with being physical. Sometimes lesser talented girls swing (overhead, windmill style swings) and you you don't see that with more talented girls.

Again, I disagree. Some of the top teams are known for late checks, butts to ribs, knuckle slashes and even the tomahawk swing. That's dirty play in my book.

There will always be a showboat or ball hog on every team. In my experience a player we have who is unselfish and passes more than takes it does not get points for assists because the player its passed to does not score three quarters of the time. She is a high scorer on the team and is encouraged to take the shots by parents and coaches. points/stats do not always determine the player.

This is this coaching staff's first year. I'm not sure what "past experience" you are alluding to.


Something still missing here. Coaches step on the field all the time without even getting a yellow card.

Also, were three players removed from the field at that point?

Not sure I get your point but if you have a kid with over a 12 to 1 ratio of goals to assists , that kid would be a nightmare to play with .There is no possible way the kids on her team would enjoy playing with a kid like that. I understand some kids are better finishers than others but to me the best players make the other kids on their team better and a player like that does not.

Sounds like my daughters team which got their asses handed to them by Farmindale last night. The only enjoyable part was watching the team nightmare get shut down when she tried charging through the defense. The above poster is correct- coaches allowed it just like they do every year, glad my kid is out but sad for the program because they do have talent and potential.

Whitman played West Babylon tough during the season; late goals inflated the score. Two collegiate bound players and a lot of athletes on the team. West Babylon likely to win but 12 seeds have nothing to lose.

Looking forward to these match-ups.
West Bab v East Islip
Northport v West Islip
To meet up with Bay Shore and Ward Melville.

I would still like to see LI and Suffolk Sweep states not sure about "B" though.

Outclassed, nothing you can do about it, WB was just better. The 2 college bound players, are playing D3, no athletic scholarships. I dont want that to diminish their accomplishment, but lets put it in perspective, Whitman had good athletes and they should be proud of making the playoffs.

One of the Whitman players turned down D1 offers because she had her sights set on a prestigious school; really smart kid so I'm sure she got her money.

One girl is going to Hamilton. The NESCAC could beat 60% of D1 schools. She must also be intelligent. In perspective, that's not bad.

I applaud her if that's the case. But money is an issue today for a lot of families. Sometimes a kid goes to the wrong school because that is where the most money is.

"neither could beat any of the teams left in A".

What are you smoking? The B's and C's best can definitely play with anyone in the A. Ask Ward Melville how they did against Sayville? The C schools faired better in league play against the B's. Bigger doesn't always mean better! You definitely need a reality check!!

The careful reader will notice that we covered one game, arguably the more interesting matchup, in each of the four divisions that saw play yesterdsy. Each day during the season, we picked games to feature that included a close match (one goal or overtime in most cases), a personal best, a rvialry match, a noteworthy achievement, or other conference/league based impacts. As for the write-ups, these are submitted by the coaches themselves.

Yes, there is. Those matches will be played for the most part next week after Memorial Day. BOTC will have the coverage.

While we call them the Long Island Championships, these Long Island finals are actually one of the four quarterfinals in the NYSPHSAA (State) Playoffs heading to the final four.

If you are so passionate about St. John the Baptist's semifinal win, you are welcomed to post the details of the game.

The cold hard truth is that the girls CHSAA playoffs are generally not competitively balanced. If St. John the Baptist manages to keep the final game within six goals, thereby improving by three goals on their May 6th 20-11 loss to St. Anthony's, it will be a major achievement - not a win, but an achievement. However, my sense is that the Friars will pull out all of the stops and the final score will be more like the 18-4 match from April 19th.

In closing, be sure of one thing. While you might like to think that MSG Varsity "staffs" these write-ups, you are very mistaken. These write-ups have been provided long before MSG Varsity existed.

The St Anthony's girls really have no one to play; at least the boys have Chaminade. I would love to see a Catholic school entrant in the overall state playoff system but I know it's not going to happen.

I was able to catch East Islip/Bay Shore yesterday. First time I have seen either team play. My hats off to East Islip; they did not have the talent of Bay Shore but played a good system. My hats off to the coaching as well.

Bay Shore blitzed them to begin the second half, which was the difference. But Bay Shore's play was uneven at best and the goaltending very questionable. Should be a great game against Ward Melville.

Anyone else at either the Ward Melville or Bayshore game?? I'm interested in 1st person accounts. the write-ups in Newsday always leave something to be desired.

I kind of heard there was a suspect call by ref at the end of the Ward melville - Northport game.. almost an OT game
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/23/13 05:27 PM
I have seen those BS girls play many times. I was definitely impressed by EI while BS looked flat and disjointed at many crucial times. Credit EI for some of that BS play, but I would say it just may be what the coaches needed to prove you need to work hard and play fundamentally sound lacrosse the rest of the way.

Taking nothing away from BS they are still a very talented team. I wish them luck. Preparation for the remaining games will be key for both the staff and players.


BTW nice stick check call. I was impressed the player kept the ball in her stick while getting slammed in the fan. Sometimes, just sometimes, that takes skill not an illegal stick.

At BS/EI game. EI played a great game. BS did not play well in the first half but came out halftime fired up; scored at least three goals in two minutes. Overall not the best game by BS but too much talent there. Goaltending not good for BS; could be a problem moving forward.

Anyone know the call the writer is referring to?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/23/13 07:51 PM
was there a change of possession call (a charge or dangerous shot) with about a minute to go, that may have nullified the tying goal? thus allowing WM to run out most of the remaining clock. I wasn't there... if you were was it a good call or not?

semi-final, game less than a minute left in a close game should the ref hold the whistle and let them play or make the call?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2013 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/23/13 08:35 PM
There was questionable calls throughout the entire WM/Northport game. Depending on who you are rooting for is the version you will get of whether it was a good or bad call. What I was most shocked about is the way parents conducted themselves even after the final buzzer. You can't win them all.

Late Charge call. Player had already shot ball and had it picked up by teammate behind net then call of charge. Girl had spilt the defenders. Brutal call. After a game of a lot of suspect or no calls with that little time ref should let them play.

That is a tough call. I think you can swallow the whistle for a charge unless it is really obvious--but don't call a block either. You can't have the players just railroading each other at the end of games. A dangerous shot has to be called.

Can someone help out a Suffolk County resident? How does Nassau County Section VIII breakdown the teams? I see four conferences but then three classes for the playoffs.

semi-final, game less than a minute left in a close game should the ref hold the whistle and let them play or make the call?

Late Charge call. Player had already shot ball and had it picked up by teammate behind net then call of charge. Girl had spilt the defenders. Brutal call. After a game of a lot of suspect or no calls with that little time ref should let them play.


Any video that someone can post on YouTube? I would love to see what happened.

Calls should be made consistently throughout the game regardless of time on the clock.

I was at EI/BS game, no interest in either team. Spectators from both teams complained consistently when calls didn't go their way.

So- one, two or twenty responses to your inquiry don't mean much as all are subjective. Get over it and move on.

Simply stated, all playoffs, Long Island Championships, and State Competitions take place along the Class lines.

A High School's class is determined by the number of students attending the individual High School and the numbers for each Class are handed down by the state.

Conferences, divisions, or leagues are typically the designated names for the league brackets followed during the season. Classes can be mixed into different leagues based on either location, rivalry matchups, or competitive level.

In Nassau, there were four conferences with the top conference referred to this season as the Power Conference based on competitive selections. In Suffolk, the two divisions were arranged based on class structure with Division I being all Class A and Division II being Class B and C.

Dude relax, as I stated above I wasn't there, ( you can read into that, that I had no rooting interest in either team, or I would have been there)

My point was to start a rational discussion with people who were there, and hear first hand accounts and opinions on whether a whistle/change of possession at the late stage of this game were warranted.

if you want we can yell at each other and talk about CR, SS, YJ and TG

"splitting the defenders" quite often is "forcing through", which is an offensive foul.

You may not watch much college lax but splitting defenders is an art that requires a player with stick skills. Forcing is the ball hog that tries to run through/ over the defenders

CHSAA Class AA Championship

St. Anthony's (1) over St. John the Baptist, 16-6

The cold hard truth is that the girls CHSAA playoffs are generally not competitively balanced. If St. John the Baptist manages to keep the final game within six goals, thereby improving by three goals on their May 6th 20-11 loss to St. Anthony's, it will be a major achievement - not a win, but an achievement. However, my sense is that the Friars will pull out all of the stops and the final score will be more like the 18-4 match from April 19th.
... And that was that.

Lied about what? BOTC stated that the game write-ups themselves are authored by the varsity coaches themselves, not from the staff writers at MSG Varsity or Newsday. MSG Varsity/Newsday act as information gatherers in addition to their own reporting. Similarly, BOTC does publish our own game write-ups in addition to those supplied via other public sources.

Given that we have provided the results for more than 2,000 boys and girls lacrosse games this season, BOTC has done an exceptional job keeping the lacrosse community informed on records, key matchups, and results throughout this season.

You posted something and it didn't make it to the message board? Really? We'll have to check on that.

You can also feel free to post your own write-up of the CHSAA Class AA Final if you wish.

As far as you keeping the lacrosse community informed, I beg to differ. MSG does that. you give people a place to vent, and complain, learn the difference. If you informed you would be a reporter, and you would know the difference between using a source and ripping off someones hard work.

And let me end with this - the girls at SJB work way harder than you do, and for you to dismiss them with a simple "that is that" is insulting to there hard work, and proves you to be a hack

Thank you Cage for your write ups this year. My daughters h.s. team has 2 coaches who never write anything except the score. Other teams have highlights and give accolades to players who stand out in games , pathetic that our gitrls get ignored year after year and our athletic director does nothing.

If you do not want to be a part of the BOTC Community, just don't visit. There are certainly other sites that would surely welcome your company.

You are very welcome - we think that our coverage has been balanced and we have pulled together daily results, standings, playoff brackets, and more to make navigating the post season in both Nassau and Suffolk easier to navigate.

Our coverage will continue straight into the county championships this upcoming week and into the state playoffs opening with the Long Island Championships.

Again, thank you for your note.

I will say this. Shoreham knew how to win as proven by their incredible run and did it with class. Mt Sinai needs to learn that quality. Mt Sinai coach calling time out with 56 seconds left in a 7-3 game and parents directly heckling Shoreham players at the end of the game and cheering when players get hurt is exactly what gives you all a bad name. So be it if you want it that way but acting like trailer trash is not what winners do. Being a winner is more than what the score board reads.

Tuesday, May 28th Results

Suffolk Class C Championship

Mount Sinai (1) over Shoreham-Wading River (2), 7-3

Or perhaps it was a classic Al Bertolone move showing some of that Yellow Jackets blood allowing his players to savor the victory while rubbing the image of the loss into the minds of the dominant SWR program? Four goal leads with less than a minute remaining and the leading coach calls the timeout?

Every year posters chime in with this. For those who may think class C talent is somewhat not on par with other classes as the poster claims I suggest going to Newsday, sports, High School, Girls lacrosse. Click on Mt. Sinai. Clearly they beat EVERY Class B school they played including BOTH B TEAMS CURRENTLY IN THE B FINALS (ESM AND SAYVILLE). SWR beat several Bs as well including ESM (B Finalist), Rocky Point, BBP, Harborfields etc.. and lost to Class A Garden City by only 1 goal. Hope this clears it up for ya! Good Luck Mt. Sinai in the States!!

Watch last years finals (you can see it on MSG Varsity) and see what the Mt Sinai players did toward the end of the game. They were as classless in defeat as they are in victory. But that's what the lax community already knows about Mt Sinai. Congratulations.

I don't know why this surprises anyone. They are taught as YJ's to play like thugs and have very little respect for the other teams. It trickles down the ladder to people like Bertolone who is usually a pretty classy guy. Whenever you have parents with no class, stemming from a tremendously talented but classless Club program, this is what you'll get. Have you ever once in your life seen a guy like Pete Mitchell carry himself with enough class to actually care what effect his decisions have on the other team. Never and I hope the people of Mt Sinai like it because that's the name they're making for themselves.

True. No one likes to play Mt. Sinai because of the parents, and that goes for sports other than lacrosse as well, and I'm going back years now. It's the way they roll, I guess, but it's unpleasant whether they win or lose.

I am not from Mt.Sinai, but I was at the game. As far as the time out, the Mt Sinai girl took at least 5 hacks from the Shoreham girls. It appeared the coach was trying to protect his player. I am not sure what any of this has to do with club. These are 2 very competitive towns with a big rivalry. I did not see or hear any heckling of the Shoreham players from the MT Sinai contingent. In fact there were many clapping for the Shoreham girls when they came to the sideline after the game. It was a hard played game by both teams. It is a shame that in these contests there always has to be mud slinging on this site. If you ask me, that is classless! Tip your hat and move on!

No, I wasn't at the SWR game, but I was at the game when a Mt. Sinai parent heckled my daughter a few weeks back. That would be the same game where a player dropped her hand on the handshake line and shouldered my daughter instead. So I am not a fan of Mt. Sinai's act.

Have you ever once in your life seen a guy like Pete Mitchell carry himself with enough class to actually care what effect his decisions have on the other team. Never and I hope the people of Mt Sinai like it because that's the name they're making for themselves.


I am not from Mt.Sinai, but I was at the game. As far as the time out, the Mt Sinai girl took at least 5 hacks from the Shoreham girls. It appeared the coach was trying to protect his player. I am not sure what any of this has to do with club. These are 2 very competitive towns with a big rivalry. I did not see or hear any heckling of the Shoreham players from the MT Sinai contingent. In fact there were many clapping for the Shoreham girls when they came to the sideline after the game. It was a hard played game by both teams. It is a shame that in these contests there always has to be mud slinging on this site. If you ask me, that is classless! Tip your hat and move on!


Well I WAS at the game and all the behavior described by those parents DID happen. You should not claim to be someone your not. The comments are not mud slinging but instead unfortunate facts regarding the sad Mt Sinai program and culture. The entire Island hates you guys and it's not cause your winners (AND THAT'S ONLY BEEN FOR LIKE FIVE MINUTES) it's cause your classless.

I will say this. Shoreham knew how to win as proven by their incredible run and did it with class. Mt Sinai needs to learn that quality. Mt Sinai coach calling time out with 56 seconds left in a 7-3 game and parents directly heckling Shoreham players at the end of the game and cheering when players get hurt is exactly what gives you all a bad name. So be it if you want it that way but acting like trailer trash is not what winners do. Being a winner is more than what the score board reads.


True. No one likes to play Mt. Sinai because of the parents, and that goes for sports other than lacrosse as well, and I'm going back years now. It's the way they roll, I guess, but it's unpleasant whether they win or lose.


True? Were you there? No one heckled any Shoreham player. Stop feeding into the pot stirrers. There was no Drama, just the garbage that is being poste here.


I was there and the accounts are right on. Every team Mt Sinai played will have a similar story of classless behavior either by the players or the parents. Too bad L.I. has to be represented up state by this team and these parents. Embarrassing really.

Anyone think it's ridiculous how Mt Sinai girls take acting classes in the off season. I saw a large bug fly near one of their heads and the player grabbed her head, fell to the ground and asked the ref for a yellow card. AND THE REF GAVE THE BUG A CARD...LOL.

Hey I was not at the game, but I will say this congrats to Mt Sinai and also to SWR, two very solid programs. I would love to see them play the other teams in Suffolk to determine a true suffolk county champion. Forget going to states, have all these great teams battle it out for a Suffolk Championship and than a LI championship and than have that team play the Catholic School champs. No one would have to travel, we get to see all the kids we know and we are left with one LI Champion!!!!
Who would it be, Garden City,Manhasset, Ward Melville, Bay Shore, Mt Sinai, SWR, ESM, Sayville, St Anthonys.....why spend all the money traveling, have it right here at Hofstra, Stony Brook or Adelphi.

you people hide on this web site and talk about coaches and the girls that play the sport. I was at the game yesterday and switched side at half time because my daughter playes attack there was no attack or heckling by either team it was a hard fought game both teams played hard it was mount sinais turn thats all you all can learn something from the girls from both teams because they left it on the field the way it should be.

This is true. That would be great! and the winner plays McDonough (or Maryland Champ). I echo the congrats to both Mt. Sinai and Shoreham! Both programs have very hard working talented girls!

Unfortunately for all you haters Mt.Sinai will be very tuff to beat for the next couple of years , hopefully they schedule some games against the other top programs on the island.The good news for you haters is that in 2016 they will come crashing back to earth and be average at best.

i was at the game too and did not hear any inappropriate comments from either side. Both teams played well and it was Mt. Sinai's time to win. why make such hatred out of a win? the girls were fine, many are friends, and all the mount sinai parents were applauding when shoreham left the stadium. if you want to make hatred out of this, go ahead but its the sore loser parents doing it, not the girls.

It's real simple. EVERY team has issues with Mt Sinai and their culture. Is every one wrong? Should everyone just "move on" after having to tolerate that behavior? Should a kid be told it's OK to lower your hand and shoulder a player during the post game hand shake? OBVIOUSLY THE ANSWER IS NO AND THIS GOES WAY BEYOND ONE GAME. ITS A CULTURE OF UNSPORTSMANLIKE BEHAVIOR THAT PERMEATES THIS PROGRAM FROM THE PARENTS TO THE PLAYERS TO THE COACH.
Let's see how many people will share their personal Mt Sinai experiences.
In Nassau Girls Class C, North Shore (2) is leading Cold Spring Harbor (1), 9-8, at halftime. North Shore scored on their opening possession in the second half to extend the lead to 10-8.
North Shore (2) has extended their lead to 17-10 over Cold Spring Harbor (1) with less than seven minutes remaining in the match.

Cold Spring Harbor coach chokes again in another big game. Can't win the big one.

Manhasset finally gets over the hump and gets the GC monkey off their back.

Farmingdale escapes a close one with Massapequa.

How have the refs been at playoff games this year???
I have been to a couple games and have seen some pretty bad calls or missed calls going both ways. Not much to affect the games outcome. Did see one call at very end of game where a girl from the winning team was issued a red card for a mid field illegal check/push, no stick contact and mild looking. It deserved a foul, place her 3 yards behind, blow whistle, continue play. With seconds left, bad call takes her off field and has her sitting for championship game. This unwarrented call may very well affect the outcome of that game. I saw the same exact foul get called at least a dozen times in the same game. For the most part I don't have problems with the calls refs make as long as they are consistant both ways, this was not.

whose "everyone"? thats such an immature statememt!! maybe your an immature sore loser, but dont start speaking for "everyone" I happen to know many SWR parents and they dont seem to have the problem that you have with MS. So patheric that your trying to get "everyone" to take your bait and start trashing a team just because they beat you. There are many very nice SWR parents whose kids play together on travel {yes, even some SWR kids play for YJ!!} and they tell me what idiot parents they have on their own team. I think "everyone" would agree that its you!

Bay Shore handled Ward Melville easily tonight. Too much talent on Bay Shore squad. Some yellow cards but more frustration than anything else. Actually a pretty clean game. If Bay Shore has flaws it is in the draw and goal.

Don't think the coaching had much to do with it, very sloppy play and ball handling led to many, many turn overs for sayville and they flat out could not exec
