When will Suffolk section xi ask teams like Middle Country and Half Hollow Hills to play with the proverbial big girls and actually play as two HS instead of One? Sidelines last year seem to support enough players...it's time. Imagine if some of the other districts in Suffolk could combine.

West Islip and West Babylon will do well this year in Suffolk.

ESM for B Schools.

Mt. Sinai will be tough to beat for the C schools.

Manhasset has a very fast/athletic junior class and will be a force. GC is always strong.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2014 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 02/27/14 03:29 AM
Ward melville will be a stretch. They lost a lot of talent with last years grad class and thier coach doesn't know which end of the stick to use.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2014 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 03/04/14 04:00 AM
Spoken like a true Ward Melville parent. Comment about which end of the stock, is accurate. The team will be very good as usual in spite of the coach.

And the worst coach award goes to , John Glenn. Seriously 25-1 . The funny thing is you would think the Glenn coach would be sympathetic considering his team has stunk for years. Be proud coach.

This is why I hate how SectionXI does the divisions and scheduling. I feel that 85% of all games are blowouts. That's pointless for both sides. And yes, shame on Glenn, although not surprised they did it. smirk

Makes no difference how you do the schedules in this case, Southampton is a first year varsity program playing one of the lowest seeded programs in the county, they have to play someone.I do not care what Glenn says that is poor sportsmanship,they were scoring at a rate of 1 goal every 2 minutes. Atleast pass it around and kill some time.
Does Nassau schedule differently? IDK and too lazy to look.

Totally agree about Glenn. There are other options than running up the score. Although I know on our HS team when we're up by a lot and the coach says to stop scoring there are still those who go to goal. Some of it is uncoachability (I may have made that word up) but most of it is about running up their numbers. Our coach pulls them though, IDK what Glenn's excuse is.

To bad Lax can't have a league like girls soccer does where the lower level teams can play each other with the best teams out of that league moving up the following season. They can have the teams with the four worst records in both leagues play in this league and have those 8 teams have a home and home with each of the other teams. You would also need to factor in teams that are first yeat lax programs also into the mix; but you get the idea.

The problem with Glenn and Bellport (the same day or the day before) is that they don't get the chance to whoop anyone so they took advantage of the opportunity. Like someone else made refernece to; Karma is a [lacrosse]
I certainly prefer the soccer model over the lacrosse model of league alignment.

Can anyone explain why it's different? I've heard it's because there are fewer lax teams but then why not just have fewer leagues?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2014 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 03/22/14 09:09 PM
Glenn is ussually on the other end of blowouts. they lose by 10 15 goals quite often. They wanted to see how it feels to actually be on the winning side of a blowout.

All the programs are ranked at the beginning of the season and divisions are made based off the rankings regardless of Class (A,B,C). Typically makes for more competitive league games throughout the season.

How are teams that make the playoffs determined ,obviously teams in the same class will be playing completely different teams during the regular season.

There are 5 conferences. All the teams in the first conference make the playoffs in their respective Class. Conf II gets a certain amount of teams based on record and strength of schedule. That formula continues for Conf III - V.

Look at Newsday to see how they are setup.

Smithtown 19-0 over cop , at least they did not cross into the 20 zone but to have 1 ball hog kid get 11 points is ridiculous. Another poor job of coaching , obviously did not need 1 kid to score that many , but I guarantee that kids mommy and daddy are so proud .

Lets see if that girls is able to put up numbers like that aginst Bayshore, West Islip, and West Babylon next week!

The poster has a point - did Smithtown empty its bench? If so, when? Or did they play their starters most of this nailbiter of a game?

Please be sure you specify Smithtown East played Copaigue...West played Brentwood and cleared their bench early.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2014 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 03/27/14 12:03 PM
Yes, a lot of dislike for the players and coaches who allow the players to be stat builders in blowout games so the can be on Newsdays point leaders board .No possible reason for Smithtown to even keep that kid in the game long enough to get 11 points. I have no problem w a player scoring the majority of its teams goals if its in the context of winning a game, obviously not the case here .

This is not surprising. It is a shame this what newsday creates,it has been going on for years. Unfortunately this is not the end of this. Hopefully the coaches control these players and in their write ups for the game instead of always putting all the acalades and attention to the kid who continues to chase the points maybe write about the kid who is the team player.

What do you do with a coach that always blames the kids for losses and never accepts any of the responsibility themselves? Besides blaming the kids, the coach demeans them both privately and publicly. The head coach is also a teacher. Supposedly the coach has been spoken to in the past but nothing has changed.

I love the sport but I hate what the recruiting and travel teams have created. Way to much me me me these days. And the way the travel kids are pitted against the non travel school teammates makes me crazy. There are some very good players that don't play Topguns liberty YJ wave etc. FYI - travel prents, they are not lepers. Question, when was the last time any of the travel programs made sizeable cuts... not often so that means most everyone makes a travel team.

I wouldn't place all the blame on the travel programs. Blame the coaches who let it happen.

Also, I haven't seen any "pitting" of travel players against non-travel players on any of my kids' teams.

No, not nice, but reality. In HS varsity stats are important. In the classroom kids don't answer questions wrong because they don't want to embarrass their classmates who are not as bright. The other teams coach could always forfeit. I'm not saying I agree with it, but we live in a very competitive world, and that does not always bring out the compassionate side of people!

YJ's try to blow everybody out every game, doesn't matter whether its summer or meaningless winter game. It's good for business, never let up. It carry's over with those girls when they play school ball, hard checks and late goals regardless of the score. It just isn't sporting behavior and its not just them. But I get it, on this board I know I am in the minority.

Its called competitive sports. You do what you can to win. Be aggressive, give it your all every minute. We come to win! These girls work extremely hard and most are looking to play in college. There it will be even more competitive! Same thing happens on the boys side. What is all this crying about? If you can't take the heat, get out of the pan! These athletes should not hold them selves back in fear of hurting someones feelings. They are in HS now. This is varsity sports! Please stop!

You do realize that a win is a win right? You think its ok to beat a HS team by 20 reagardless of their ability just because they are in HS right? Thats ok sportsmanship ? You sound like one of the travel parents that most despise. As long as your kid gets her goals screw everyone else. Nice!

Actually, it's happened to my kids both ways! We live and learn! Sports is about winning, that's the way it is. It sucks losing by double digits but sometimes a team is that good! I also know that what comes around goes around. You may win by a lot today, and tomorrow get schooled. You have to learn from it and try to get better. Not whine and feel sorry for yourself. Varsity sports are very competitive with a lot on the line, it's not a place for every kid!

No, not nice, but reality. In HS varsity stats are important. In the classroom kids don't answer questions wrong because they don't want to embarrass their classmates who are not as bright. The other teams coach could always forfeit. I'm not saying I agree with it, but we live in a very competitive world, and that does not always bring out the compassionate side of people!
YJ's try to blow everybody out every game, doesn't matter whether its summer or meaningless winter game. It's good for business, never let up. It carry's over with those girls when they play school ball, hard checks and late goals regardless of the score. It just isn't sporting behavior and its not just them. But I get it, on this board I know I am in the minority.


Its called competitive sports. You do what you can to win. Be aggressive, give it your all every minute. We come to win! These girls work extremely hard and most are looking to play in college. There it will be even more competitive! Same thing happens on the boys side. What is all this crying about? If you can't take the heat, get out of the pan! These athletes should not hold them selves back in fear of hurting someones feelings. They are in HS now. This is varsity sports! Please stop!
You do realize that a win is a win right? You think its ok to beat a HS team by 20 reagardless of their ability just because they are in HS right? Thats ok sportsmanship ? You sound like one of the travel parents that most despise. As long as your kid gets her goals screw everyone else. Nice!


Actually, it's happened to my kids both ways! We live and learn! Sports is about winning, that's the way it is. It sucks losing by double digits but sometimes a team is that good! I also know that what comes around goes around. You may win by a lot today, and tomorrow get schooled. You have to learn from it and try to get better. Not whine and feel sorry for yourself. Varsity sports are very competitive with a lot on the line, it's not a place for every kid!
Only a TOOL tries to justify bad sportsmanship. My kid is just too good, me and the coach can't stop her I'm sorry the other team is so weak but that's not our problem

That's why Duke's calling:) Sorry, it can't be everyone. That's why they call it competitive athletics. The cream rises to the top, and doors open. That's why we invested 1000's
I don't think anyone wants games to not be competitive, but I also don't think there is any good reason (other than blowing up your stats) to play such lopsided games. Neither side benefits.

from what I understand is the Smith e coach is new this year, in the past the coach would never allow this to happen. and yes the 2 top players played all but n3-5 minutes of the game and there were girls that did not see any playing time on the smithtown bench

this is not about a girl or even a whole team of girls this is on the coaches for allowing his/her teams to run up the score on lesser skilled opponents. there are plenty of ways to play the game, and win the game without embarrassing the other team. empty the bench, work on your stall, don't double, work your zone, get your goalie involved on the clear, shoot over the top, reverse the ball on the clear. these and many other things can be done in a way that it will not embarrass your opponent. As to the poster that said this is "competitive High School Lacrosse" 9-8,10-6,20-15 is competitive.19-0 is uncalled for. The most "competitive programs" will not embarrass a lesser opponent unless it is warranted for some reason. Take a look at ST Anthonys,who some believe to be the most "competitive" team around,and you will find that in the last couple of years they may have beaten an opponent by 15 or more once. Competition is about the win not the score. Have no dog in the fight just an observation

Great athletes no question, but you would think that a great athlete would be smart enough to know games like these are decided before they get off teh bus. How about the great athlete work in some of my friends and teammates and spread the wealth and gain some respect. But NO, gotta get MINE thats what my parents and travel coach says. Its just a sad and selfish game sometimes and thats unfortunate.

You have no idea what you are talking about. Check the stats from the last 2 years, each year there one girl that chased the points on this team. Both have since graduated, a different girl each of those years. What is funny is both years this team should have made the playoffs and did not because of lack of team play. It was one player each of those years trying to showcase themselves and nobody stepped in to stop it.

Are you saying this girl isn't chasing points? It seems as though she is. And if so, it's going to be a long 4 years for her teammates.

People are entitled to their opinions. In this particular I have read chapter and verse on this board about how CR seems to treat people and that she uses bullying tactics. Speaking from personal experience she did try exactly those tactics on me. So from my own direct personal experience I can attribute credibility to what many are writing here.

I may have to to a YJ game and introduce myself to CR. I am always happy to make new friends.

If she were that good she would have enough self confidence to not score 11 points against Cop., your better players would be embarrassed. Again there are games that are competitive and you need your better players to take control , this was not one of them. If you can say they would not have won that game without her I would get it but obviously not the case.

You lose all credibility when you blame her travel coach. Tell her high school coach to do the right thing , her travel coach has nothing to do with it.

No coach should be allowed to demean their players. What school is this? Nassau or Suffolk?

I disagree, If mommy and daddy tell her on every car ride "get yours" and northwestern will be calling and then the travel coach reinforces that same message "we need to kill everyone" because CR says its good for her business you think a HS coach is going to reel that kid in? Selfish is selfish doesnt go on and off like a switch. You kool aid drinkers think poor sportsmanship can be justified because of competitivness and uncontrollable skill. It never can be especially in school sports. You want to act that way in summer go ahead that is what you have chosen and pay for. But show some class on the school fields. Be humble

Same in PAL its starting younger and younger. We win 17 - 5 and the girl in the middle has 12 goals. But when you have 8th graders committing to college its only going to get worse. Unfortunate for the rest of us.

That's my take, too, not specific to Smithtown because I don't know them but the numbers-players all around. I've heard it firsthand, "How many goals did you get? Who scored?" And those parents are the ones checking the scoring leaders on Newsday every day. When they aren't at a game, they call and ask those questions. Not, "What's the score? How are we doing?" but "Who scored?"

First of all read carefully I didn't say they couldn't get jobs what I said was "struggle" to get jobs. What I am getting at is some schools have stronger alumni base contacts than others Ivies, Dukes, Notre Dames of the world as opposed to the Florida's, Towsons and UMasses of the world. So keep running up the scores in High School games and some will try and keep running there to better academic institutions.

You have no way of knowing who will struugle to get/keep a job following college. You are looking for some angle to put a graet player down. Like I said, jealousy! Do you complain when Melo scores 40pts in a bball game? Ballhog, right?

Check the stats on all the other teams and see the scores run up in other games.
Unless you were there to see Smithtown having a catch and practicing plays and cuts during the game, you should keep quiet. Team points are important in case you don't understand how it works. In addition, I am a friend of that girl ,and she had just as many assists As goals. Those assists obviously could have been goals as well. Jealousy rears its ugly face.

Be careful with your "Dukes, Notre Dames and Ivys" they are giving you very little, if any, money. You will rack up a quarter million in debt for a kid that has the potential of meeting the man of her dreams at one of these prestigious institutions and never utilizing those strong alumni contacts... Have your daughter get the best education possible without incurring huge debt! If she plays lax too, that's great.

Jealous fool! Worry about why your own kid isn't scoring!

I love It ! Bandana dad and double wide trailer Smithtown East crew getting slapped around on BOTC. What goes around comes around!


And where is your daughter committed? Oh, nowhere, cause she can't score any goals!

If she were that good she would have enough self confidence to not score 11 points against Cop., your better players would be embarrassed. Again there are games that are competitive and you need your better players to take control , this was not one of them. If you can say they would not have won that game without her I would get it but obviously not the case.

It's the nutty parents who are chirping in the daughters ear, they have worn out there welcome in Smithtown and on the YJ team, it's all about "me me me me" and look at what little "star" did today. Womens Lax ends after college, so go to that subpar academic college but a great lax program and than struggle to get a job. All the fan fair will end morons!


Sounds like jealousy! Did you know that people get jobs coming out off all colleges, including Suffolk Community!

First of all read carefully I didn't say they couldn't get jobs what I said was "struggle" to get jobs. What I am getting at is some schools have stronger alumni base contacts than others Ivies, Dukes, Notre Dames of the world as opposed to the Florida's, Towsons and UMasses of the world. So keep running up the scores in High School games and some will try and keep running there to better academic institutions.

Please tell us the Ivy League school your daughter will be attending.

Completely agree. Some people need to grow up. Maybe if they took the time to actually get to know her they would realize her only interest is in the kids!!!!

So pathetically transparent ,lets run up our points total by getting a lot of assists against an inferior team and hope people think she is a team player because of it. The coach must be afraid to do the right thing out of fear the loud mouth parents will complain because there is no way the coach wants kids running up their stats in games like that .Even funnier the kid has already knows where she is going but has such an ego she needs to feed the monster. Good luck getting on the field in college as the other Long Island kids heading south are better players and teammates at this point.

Great point on these kids -plural across many many teams - knowing where they are going and still not being able to do the right thing. These parents and travel lacrosse have created SELFISH MONSTERS. I have paid my 20 grand in so I am deserving and my poor sportsmanship should be accepted. Keep your competitive game my kid can do it and yours can't blah blah blah to yourselves. Bad is bad.

Too funny an anonymous poster bashing anonymous posts, what exactly do you mean "if your sideline antics are bad enough". Try using comprehensible sentences. It's a legitimate discussion , at what point do these teams cross over into poor sportsmanship . Why do the coaches allow it. My daughters coach in non competitive games places limits on the girls no more than 3 goals and 3 assists for any one girl, if you are up by more than 10 if you have scored you do not score again , etc.

Pathetic comment. Some of these players are the way they are thanks to their coaches and parents. Teams running up scores and not looking to their benches for substitution, parents yelling at their girls to be more physical on the field when does it end. I saw scores this week that were ridiculous and my daughter plays for a team that suffered one of those deep score losses to a top team in the county. Sadly it happens we are building a program and they focuses on scoring and not subbing...one day some of these aggressive score running up teams will have it back in their faces bc they focus on 12 and the others on the bench don't get acknowledged...section xi in my opinion needs to do more then run the clock when the score is 10 more then another they should force a coach to play their bench and pull off starters. And as far as aggression goes I thought after a certain number of cards there is a punishment. My daughter is an 8th grader I'm not even thinking about college like some of you I just want her to be able to play in a game where the other coach cares enough to make it fair after they are up by 10

These things happen in all sport and are unfortunate.Mercy rules should be invoked at some point.There are mercy rules in softball,wresting has the technical fall,maybe one day the 15 goal differential in lax will end a game.
In reguards to aggressive play, players who are club players play a college style of lacrosse.Its not dirty , its the way it is.The most aggressive kids draw fouls in all sport,the rules are there to protect and it is up to the official to control the contest.
Power rated divisions are supposed to protect the lower seeded teams and for the most part do,however in girls lacrosse there aren't enough teams and the bottom of the division still draws the mid to upper middle.At times there are mismatches.Unfortunate situation.
I hope everyone has a great HS and club experience this year.Try to stay in the positive folks.

Agree 100%. It's out of control. When the game is essentially over and you have girls taking tomahawk swings at girls heads it's an issue. I hold their coaches responsible first and the refs second.

Good Post but a Mercy Rule is put in place to control idiot coaches and selfish players. Earlier posters have said it, in the travel big bucks lacrosse world of today nobody blinks at 15+ goal margins. They immediately ask who scored like when you win by 20 that matters? Shouldn't need mercy rules when common sense should prevail especially in school sports. Kill each other over the summer this way you can feel like you are getting your monies worth

I have witnessed so much good out there that these bad situations are the exception and not the rule. I have witnessed officials and timers turning score-boards off and using running time .I have seen winter and club games where jerseys were exchanged and teams were balanced for a quality game. I have seen HS games handled in similar ways....I agree that common sense has to prevail but without leadership stepping in and fostering that approach it will not improve. ADs need to attend games and make sure they have a feel for whats going on. They are accountable for making sure a coach can handle the good and the bad of those HS situations. Over the years I have often felt the game against an inferior opponent is a lose=lose situation for everyone. If schools have a plan going into those contests we can make it a win-win situation. HS sports teach more than just winning. Empathy and compassion have a place as well and I have seen it first hand. Look to the leadership to help insure that future situations are handled more appropriately. ADs should have more hands on these situations at the HS and middle school level.

These ridiculous conversations would never happen on the boys varsity thread! The high scoring boys just get their pics in Newsday and calls will roll in from college coaches!

Stop babying these girls and let them play and score.

I suspect you are upset and jealous because your daughter is not scoring

Exactly. Some games are just not going to be competitive but there are ways of making it something other than a chance for someone to blow up her numbers. Have the winning team start using their non-dominant hand, for instance. Switch up the offense and the defense. Clear the bench.

Does not happen to the same extent in boys lax and when it does you usually hear the " put him down" calls from the losing team parents.

Just a quick heads up to everyone that the rules changed this year.There is absolutely no horizontal stick-play in HS girls lacrosse. This is going to lead to and has already led to a lot of whistles.Players ,coaches and spectators are going to be frustrated. Lets hope for good weather this week because lax is better in the sunshine...have a great week folks and try to accentuate the positive..Life is too short.

What does that even mean? You cab't run with one hand on the stick and pump down field with the other? We played 4 games and the refs were fine w it, if that's what you mean?

No it is on the defensive side any contact to the body when the cross is below 10 oclock 2 oclock will be considered horizontal and the defense will be called as a major foul.

LOL , talking about defensively , cannot turn your stick horizontal at all when playing defense. I think it's a bad rule change , it's hard enough to play defense in girls lacrosse as is.

It is concerning making stick to body contact while the stick is being held in a horizontal position. Officials are being instructed to strictly enforce this during the season.

The way it was explained to me is think crosschecking in hockey. Once the stick drops down below 10 and 4 creating defensive width it will be called. they want that stick straight up and down more in a wind shield wiper fashion. IS THIS CORRECT?

Rules committee made the rule interpretation changes to minimize HS girls w/ arm, shoulder and back injuries due to rough stick play on D and in the midfield.

I agree ball hogs and coaches who create them should not be tolerated in games that have a more then 10 goal lead. Some of us pay big bucks during the summer to play competive lax and some of us don't. Should the girl who doesn't be punished and demoralized by another team and their coach just so these superstars can have higher stats. And what's even more demoralizing is when another team is ahead of your team and that coach is yelling and screaming and carrying on as if they are losing...it needs to end.

What is weird is that you have no idea what the difference between girls and boys lacrosse is supposed to be and thus your ignorant comments. Horizontal stick position while defending is the direct result of all knowing lacrosse dads who teach their girls to play defense like a boy. Obviously you have never seen the welts and black and blues on a girls arm from receiving cross checks. Not overly attractive. Defense can be played, and played effectively with the stick vertically, feet movement, and well timed slides. The game does not need to be played out of control but it is because girls are taught incorrectly at an early age.

My little Shannon is that good and should be allowed to score as many as she can get.I love sharing sidelines with people like this.

I Hope " little Shannon is fictional " if not it is very disturbing that we as adults,(an assumption)have to pick on 14 yr old children to make our points. As for blowouts and ball hogs that should and must be controlled by the coach. If the girl is good enough to score 11 points, what the [lacrosse] is she even doing on the field long enough to score like that. Anyone associated with games like this know the result on the bus ride over. why let it get to 19-0 final or even 10-0 in the first. Coaches,parents and players need to show a little more respect for their opponents in all competition.

I think that there are too many girls playing varsity lacrosse that should not be. You people are blaming girls for being too good! This is rediculus. Some of us have invested years of money and time to get our girls to this position. We are hoping for college scholarships. In college it will be even more intense. As Varsity players, Stats matter. If you have to complain about girls scoring too many points, or being too rough, your daughter should not play. Find a non-contact sport like swimming and try not to complain if your daughter gets splashed!

Smart Post. All the complainers should read this, it may help them understand what is going on, and stop blaming the exceptional players for being.....exceptional!


You really are a moron , that post in no way supported ball hog kids running up their stats against inferior teams.Exceptional , get over yourself mom.


I agree ball hogs and coaches who create them should not be tolerated in games that have a more then 10 goal lead. Some of us pay big bucks during the summer to play competive lax and some of us don't.

In Nassau league play is based on the skill level of teams . All of the best teams without regard to school size play each other. I would think this set up would help clear up the blowout wins by 15 or more. Middle level teams play schools of equal skill and so on. However when the playoffs start everyone has to play in their correct division based upon the schools student population.

What does that even mean? You cab't run with one hand on the stick and pump down field with the other? We played 4 games and the refs were fine w it, if that's what you mean?[/quote]

It is concerning making stick to body contact while the stick is being held in a horizontal position. Officials are being instructed to strictly enforce this during the season. [/quote]

Why, because they magically decided that this was the problem with girls lax? weird [/quote]

What is weird is that you have no idea what the difference between girls and boys lacrosse is supposed to be and thus your ignorant comments. Horizontal stick position while defending is the direct result of all knowing lacrosse dads who teach their girls to play defense like a boy. Obviously you have never seen the welts and black and blues on a girls arm from receiving cross checks. Not overly attractive. Defense can be played, and played effectively with the stick vertically, feet movement, and well timed slides. The game does not need to be played out of control but it is because girls are taught incorrectly at an early age. [/quote]

Whats amazing is what a moron you are. The attractiveness of bruises has no part in the discussion.Teaching them wrong at an early age , its a new rule this year so you have issues with kids playing according to the rules in the past? Go watch a college game , all the defenders play with their sticks horizontal at times but of course your daughter has better technique than the best collegiate defenders in the nation.Let me know what team your daughter plays defense for so I can watch a kid who has been trained by the master.

First, you are 100% correct. College kids are taught and play with the stick horizontal because it is not a major foul at that level. The 2014 rule changes are specific to High School and Youth Leagues. The link below should be of use to you. Try reading it then opine on the topic.

http://www.uslacrosse.org/rules/girls-rules.aspx

Most likely this rule will eventually be adopted at the collegiate level as well but I have no facts to back that up. It is just my opinion.


Next, you are also 100% correct that bruises have nothing to do with the discusssion but player safety has everything to do with the discussion. The bruises are the direct result of players using the crosse to cross-check. You eliminate the horizontal crosse as a way to defend and enforce (and teach) the rules as written then players are less likely to be injured.

Lastly, my daughters (who play attack and defense) have had to change their technique to defend because of the rule change. So no, their technique is not better than the best collegiate players but it is different based on the rules with which they play. It is being taught to them at the high school and club level. It started this winter and continues through the spring/summer.

I guess I will know who your daughter is because she will be the one standing 4 meters behind my daughter as she gets ready to take a free position shot.

Moron?!?! That's funny...

Again you show what a moron you are, not a major foul , nor is it a minor foul at the collegiate level to play defense with your stick horizontal. The fact that your daughter has needed to change her defensive technique due to the new rules shows you must have been one of those all knowing lacrosse dads.The only correct thing you said was you have no facts to back anything up. Not worried about your daughter getting a free position shot as I am sure your expertise have resulted in many an easy save by countless goalies. Sorry your poor defenseless daughter has been cross checked , which has always been illegal, by those poorly coached defenders.

Every other sport seems to be able to be accepting and inclusive. Only travel lacrosse parents drive that wedge between players of different abilities telling everyone else that if they can't keep up to find another sport. My daughters school basketball team with some aau players, no issue. Softball with some travel kids, no issue. Premier soccer players, no issue. Good sportsmanship all around. Only travel lacrosse parents try to justify bad behavior, selfish play and running up scores

USL clearly states that girls lacrosse is a non contact sport.

Then your lucky with the teams you have found in other sports because I have found the same exact thing in basketball and soccer. We have been on both sides of the argument and I have no problem at all with kids dominating one sport or another, good for them.

I think is it's not so much the lacrosse parents but the division breakouts. In soccer and basketball there are leagues with 8 or so teams in each, and these generally more closely aligned in ability so the chances of a blowout are lessened. I'd much rather see lacrosse ditch the 2 division grouping with its wildly disparate teams and have league play. I've been told that lacrosse groups and schedules as it does because there are fewer teams than the other sports but IDK, that seems less and less valid as the lacrosse community grows.

Now I get it,when your superstar wife and her "all American friends" have been involved in coaching a kid defense its easy for that kid but for all the other kids out there its not so easy.All that was said is playing defense in girls lacrosse is not easy , the rules and the way officials call the game make playing defense difficult at best.Most who have watched the game realize this much the way playing defense in the NFL has become more difficult.The officials need to start calling more charges etc., and this comes from a parent who has an attack player as a daughter.

In our town kids are quiting PAL in droves. We had a strong program and now are struggling at almost every grade. Only travel is growing by leaps and bounds and new travel clubs are popping up weekly. Lots of money to be made. If you arent willing to play all summer and write big checks you are being left behind. Still need 20 girls or so for teams coaches need to remember that.

What Parents seem to forget is that PAL helps develop the girls and establish a sense of Community. When these girls who play Travel Only reach High school the team will suffer.
I know I will here about it but PAL is about learning the game and having [b][/b]FUN. They are children they are suppose to enjoy themselves. Travel is more demanding and requires dedication a child can do both. Parents just have to separate the expectations depending on where the child is playing and their abilities. Everyone develops at a different pace.

The problem with all the travel programs is not all girls are up to travel. As these new programs will find out in a hurry when they play any real tournament. Only 3 or 4 programs from the island can handle themselves at these legit tournaments and that is only the top team or two from the age group. The 5th and 6th team from these clubs don't belong at the tournaments either.Lets face it, all the good varsity programs are driven by club produced talent, period.

THere are more than a handful of Nassau JV teams that have folded or can barely field because of low player numbers. You have the hyper motivated and then the rest who have left the game after not having a great experience. I get the fact that GC probably has 75% of their squad playing club but what about the schools where its only a handful? A storm is brewing

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2014 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/02/14 12:52 AM
The HS Girls programs are direct reflections of their Youth PAL programs. The towns that balance their teams and include all levels of players from K-8th grade are the Towns putting quality Varsity and JV teams on the field year in and out. They may lose at the PAL level but when it all comes together at he HS level the winning happens. In my town many of the girls play on travel programs and the town travel teams up till 9th & 10th grade. If the Town youth directors would put more effort into keeping the girls playing together and developing the Town Program which includes having balanced PAL teams the HS program would benefit. The problem is that many PAL coaches are only interested in getting their daughters on Varsity and winning meaningless PAL games.

Everything is the problem my kid is playing basketball, lacrosse and soccer this spring. There aren't enough days in the week but at a young age how do you choose one over the other? And everthing is starting by kindergarten or 1st grade trying to lock the kids up


This the 2014 High School thread. If your daughter is playing varsity lacrosse, she should not be playing those other sports while in season.

The problem with all the travel programs is not all girls are up to travel. As these new programs will find out in a hurry when they play any real tournament. Only 3 or 4 programs from the island can handle themselves at these legit tournaments and that is only the top team or two from the age group. The 5th and 6th team from these clubs don't belong at the tournaments either.Lets face it, all the good varsity programs are driven by club produced talent, period. [/quote]

THere are more than a handful of Nassau JV teams that have folded or can barely field because of low player numbers. You have the hyper motivated and then the rest who have left the game after not having a great experience. I get the fact that GC probably has 75% of their squad playing club but what about the schools where its only a handful? A storm is brewing [/quote]

GC kids have to play travel. The PAL program is awful. It's run by one guy and a bunch of self proclaimed board members who only care about advancing their own mediocre kids.

The difference is no kid appears to have been left in the game to be a stat builder, Longwood did not have a single kid score over 3 goals or 3 assists which makes it seem as if the coach put limits on the kids. Your precious SE team had one kid virtually score as many as the top 2 Longwood kids combined.

you are absolutely correct. but cant watch for every game that girls or teams run up scores. the teams that run up the scores like that are teams that arent that good (weak), just trying to get recognition for beating up a very weak team.

Islip, Longwood, Westhampton, Elwood/john glenn, center moriches, connetquot, Kings park, smith east, bellport, are some of these teams. weak, never won anything, never will, have history of being badddddddddddddddddddddd.

What kind of coach allows that? Isn't that demoralizing to the rest of the team?

That raises an interesting question....As a sub on a team with depth and obvious top line starters, what is the benefit of staying on the team, especially as a freshman or Sophmore? Wouldn't it be more beneficial to play for JV and possibly play every day, more reps, more exposure, etc!
Particularly at certain positions such as attack, goalie, etc. The only way to get better is to play in games and live action. All too often, I see parents make a stink and accept nothing less than having their kids on the "better" team, yet they don't play. This in no way helps the player better their skills and develop as a player.

All the crazies want to say their kid was a 4 year varsity player, we have people that actually want to be 5 year players coming up from 8th grade even if they don't play. Makes for great personal player resume stuff. No one wants to go to travel practice and be the only 9th or 10th grader not playing varsity GOT TO KEEP UP. If lacrosse keeps driving out the non travel player you will see more and more younger players playing varsity out of a need for bodies.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2014 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/04/14 02:48 PM
Bottom line is the player that plays more will improve in skills. That being said, not everyone is at the same starting point. By keeping a player on a team as a spectator from the sidelines, the risk of being surpassed by someone the next year or less skilled or even younger but playing every day is possible as that player gets more exposure and reps. Than what? The player that doesn't play now will never see the field in the future either.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2014 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/04/14 03:45 PM
Another way to look at it is if the JV program has a lot of girls on it and except for the few girls who did not make varsity it is not too strong. It may help a player to practice with better players every day then practice and play with a lower level. Just a thought

Disagree....
There is far less "live" game action and pressure only practicing. You cannot replace real pressure situations in real games. Playing everyday will expose the player to pressure situations and decision making opportunities every game. At the outside chance an opportunity comes up that the player plays on the "better" team, it will most likely be when the score is extremely lopsided one way or the other. No pressure situations. How does that help develop the player?
Playing on the "lower" team will provide challenges and improve the player for the future.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2014 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/04/14 04:14 PM
Makes Great sense ,Just be realistic with yourselves if your daughter is on the bubble between Varsity and JV don't push the envelope of having her play Varsity so you can sit in the stands and pound your chest that your daughter is wearing a varsity uniform at a younger age 7/8/9/10th grade such is like the majority of the parents we know that have their kids playing up on the big V and have turned into a total monster , like instances "without their daughter on this team" syndrome becomes unbearable , when they hardly are on the field or there was no other choice but to take that particular player do to a positional drought. You want as much playtime for your daughter as possible in game situations , but keep one thing in mind that 90% of your daughters skill advancement is from practicing not from games which at that time they need to apply what they learned from practicing against resistance . This can all be done at the age appropriate bracket , when they get into the Varsity level chances are they will supercede the ones who been there all along with minimal playtime.

The best is when a 9th grader is called up and then the parents [lacrosse] and moan complaining about their kid not playing. How dare the coach? Doesn't he know my daughter plays on the Super Real Blue YJ team? CR tells me my child is the best! Why do all these seniors have to play? Why do they have senior day? Why are the seniors captains? Doesn't the coach see that my daughter wears YJ gear everyday and not her school colors? How can our coach not fear the bee?

Allot of parents actually believe in their daughters imaginary D1 bound world that the reason they are playing up is because the team relies on that specific player , and more so the parents dictate to the coaches on where their daughter should be playing !

You want as much playtime for your daughter as possible in game situations , but keep one thing in mind that 90% of your daughters skill advancement is from practicing not from games which at that time they need to apply what they learned from practicing against resistance . This can all be done at the age appropriate bracket , when they get into the Varsity level chances are they will supercede the ones who been there all along with minimal playtime.

All too often, I see parents make a stink and accept nothing less than having their kids on the "better" team, yet they don't play. This in no way helps the player better their skills and develop as a player.

Those Islip sisters are good kids and very talented lacrosse players. Islip doesn't win a game without them. Shame on you for picking on a couple of high school kids. You and this site suck.

Maybe I'm naive, but I would never call the AD or coach at my daughters HS in any sport and lobby for her to be on varsity. I've heard stories that this goes on everywhere but don't know what to believe. Anyone?

I agree, but they do produce, or else they would never be able to field 6 teams. It will be my younger daughters first year on YJ. We chose this team because of their record and reputation of being the best, kind of like choosing 91 or express for boys.

In many towns younger girls are brought up to Varsity so they can scrimage full field. That kid is a practice body nothing more. If your daughter is brought up and starts or is first or second sub in the game then that kid is legit. Every town has girls on both sides. Its the parents that are delusional and its always the coach or AD's fault never the kids talent level.

I agree, my daughter was not chosen for varsity in 9th grade as she was away at an academic event and was upset that girls in her grade were chosen for varsity of the same level of play as her. mid season she was aproached by varsity coach to move up. I am proud to say her answer to the coach was I will move up to varsity if I get playing time but if you want to fill a bench position i will stay on JV as I like to play not watch. I was told this by JV coach not by my daughter. She is not one of the greats from other school district but loves to play. BTW her high school team has never had a win but she and her team mates never give up. let the girls have fun and enjoy

Towns do pull up kids to fill out rosters. Kids that would never be pulled up if lacrosse was holding their player numbers. In our town we have way too many 8th graders on JV and 9th graders on varsity. Kids are up due to need not ability

Her response or yours? Doubt a 9th grader uses terminology like "bench position" unless she has been riding it!

In most age groups they field teams that are extremely competitive, those used to be called the blue teams. In order to bamboozle unwary consumers, they dropped the team color codes and ,amed the teams after coaches so that kids on the forth or fifth teams have no idea what team they are on, makes it much easier to get people to comit. So if you chose this club because you were playing for the top team , then you are getting your moneys worth and you are correct that the reputation of being one of the best is correct. The yj, just like the boys clubs you mentioned are cashing in on their top team reputations, especially when you get three four teams out, but who the [lacrosse] even knows what team is what anymore, kinda genius.

Actually in our school district if a kid is going to be moved up it is only done if that kid is expected to get significant playing time ie 50 percent of game or they do not get moved up. If you were even vaguely aware of the recommendations by the state in regard to selection classification that almost all schools have adopted you would know that they expressly forbid teams from moving kids up just to fill out rosters.You seem like one of those cowards that like to try and knock kids , coaches, other parents behind their backs but too much of a wimp to express your concerns directly to them. The funny thing those people who you whine too know what a coward you are.

And your competition is....7th and 8th graders also brought up so they are the best in that age group. Good for them.

Every coach will have their own philosophy on this. My daughter was brought up and has played every minute of every game, I know other deserving girls not brought up or limited playing time in other district. Every program will treat this differently.

What is your opinion on a good ratio for assists to goals so you aren't deemed a black hole of a ball hog? Seems some leading scorers assist 30% of the time but some are close to single digits.

I would love to see 50% since it is a team sport but we play on a team where everyone has to pass except the chosen one or as you said the black hole. She doesn't think anyone else is capable of scoring so she will do it herself. When she does pass its to just a few girls. The rest run around as decoys.

50% are you kdding me. there are scorers and there are feeders depending on your schools style. top goal scorers are at 5% assists, that coach would like to see it, but it never happens. he would also like to see his team win all its games, lol. if he made a comment like that, he probably at the bottom of the pack, if you know what i mean

Black Holes SUCK THE LIFE OUT OF TEAMS, especially if the team is losing. Only one happy in that scenario is the parents of the "one" because you know, she gotta get hers so she can sign that letter of intent.

I think 1 assist for every 2 goals is ideal for a "scoring Middie..a feeding attack player would have the numbers reversed.

Does your team have a dynamic feeder? It is possible to have two players who work very well together, one who plays well off ball and one who looks to feed.

I would like to have one "ball hog" one "feeder" and a bunch of well balanced players who understand the game. Oh yea, a very athletic defense and a decent goalie wouldn't hurt.

Our balanced players are losing patience with our ball hog. We all get the fact that she is D1 bound, but its painful for everyone else around her both players and parents

Brine is a waste of time and money!!! College coaches do not show up like they advertise. And the ones that do are there for the boy. It's like everything else almost every kid makes the team. Long Island picks their team and the rest of the girls go into a pool of players to fill rosters for teams who didn't get enough. My daughter played for LI a few years ago but her friend was on New England...both from Long Island. Don't be fooled into believing it's like under armour bc it's not and it's usually the same time that Under Armour is going on just an FYI...SAVE your $$

The middle school tryouts were a joke, the people doing the evaluations were barely paying attention, some kids got into the scrimmages only at the end, while others were out there almost the whole time. Watching the one on one area you had some groups were kids trying out for middie played defense the whole time while other kids trying out for middie played offense the whole time.For 90 or so dollars you could at least have 3 full hours of tryouts a few more evaluaters who pay attention.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2014 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/07/14 04:31 PM
There are also many college camps the same week as the Brine Classic, so it might be a better decision to send your daughter to a camp at the college she may be interested in attending....she will get more looks and would be a more productive way to spend her time.

Additionally, if Brine tryouts were run the same way as last year....that would mean that Team Elevate will be representing LI again in Maryland! I do hope for those of you that attended that they had impartial coaches evaluating this year?

I agree with the above poster send your daughter to a college camp that's money better spent. Compare some of the camps with the week of the games two years ago they were all almost the same time or close to it. The reality being that the college coaches are not there. If ever there was a money maker Brine is it. Yes they have a long list of college commits but not because of their games it's because most of those girls play travel and emailed the directors when they committed to college. My daughter being one of them.

The middle school tryouts were a joke, the people doing the evaluations were barely paying attention, some kids got into the scrimmages only at the end, while others were out there almost the whole time. Watching the one on one area you had some groups were kids trying out for middie played defense the whole time while other kids trying out for middie played offense the whole time.For 90 or so dollars you could at least have 3 full hours of tryouts a few more evaluaters who pay attention.


Opted my daughters out this year and glad I did. Sending them to a few college camps instead. Better use of money I feel. Daughter did attend Brine last year, but wanted something else this year.

Funny heard totally different scenario , we know a several girls who went last year and had a great experience and met up with plenty of college coaches who actually one of the girls were recruited from Brine. Chances are the ones knocking it are the ones who didn't make the cut (SOUR GRAPES)! There was a big turnout at yesterdays tryouts , For each his/her own , Good luck trying out for the UA , its a YJ nation out there! Congrats to all the girls who are in the running.

No Sour grapes here, just not interested in attending again. If it is not a money maker than why are they asking girls to pay an additional $$$ (over 100) to come play a game so the final decision may be made for cuts. That's over $250 for tryout cost then the additional cost for the 3 days. Sorry, made right decision in not attending this year.

Its a complete money grab and anyone who went to the tryouts this year knows it.Prior to tryouts had heard that it is but thought we would give it a try anyway, big mistake. My daughter was selected to attend the next tryout but no thanks, another 150 dollars to play in 1 game so they can make a final decision, what a joke. BOC , I am surprised you are not all over this , a 250 dollar try-out fee and its not like the kids get any instruction out of it.From what I have seen you get to pay 250 dollars to get evaluaters that barely pay attention .

Brine was ridiculous and everyone there knows it. What they have to realize as they steal our money is they play with the minds of children. There were times nobody paid any attention to play. I have a daughter who had the worst tryout and she was selected. And I see a 2021 kid??? is that 2021 kid better then kids not selected. come on.

They did not take a couple of the best 2019 kids but took a 2021 kid who would have no chance playing against those 2019 kids. They took what 3 defenders , so I guess the position you try out for means very little they will just take a couple middies and make them defenders I guess.

1/2 the kids at the 2017 tryout were from Elevate and a bunch of them didn't make it. If you're looking for drama about the roster for the 2017 tryout, there may be some but you missed the mark.

Went to the tryout , daughter was selected but not going. Not paying another tryout fee only to pay again to go to a camp. Why another tryout fee?? $250 just to tryout. Just another money grab. Looked into it. It;s not even run by Brine. It;s run by some sports business. Have fun without me.

The Brine classic is for high school students and belongs on this thread. I think it is helpful to future players to have this info. It is a money grab and the evaluators are biased towards one club in particular.....I for one would have liked this info last year when my daughter went to the $80-$100 tryout.....Last year there were many high caliber players there who were not chosen or even made alternates.....it was all about team elevate. These boards, as much as there is so much crap and whining on them can be very helpful to kids coming up if they have this info in hand. I personally believe the tryout numbers were way way lower this year because this info was disseminated to the lax community last year....so sorry you are bothered by something that does not interest you....but I hope the info helps others! Wishing all LI players a great rest of the HS season and a great summer season!

should be an interesting week , Islip has games against two of the weakest teams out there( two first year varsity programs). My guess the under over for the sisters is 40 points total in the two games. Any takers on that bet.Hey Islip coach how about a little sportsmanship, maybe let the stat builders get a tatste of how it feels to play defense for a whole game.

I just took a look at the stats from Islip's two losses and the girls seem to put up consistent numbers. Most teams are carried by two or three goal scorers they just happen to be sisters. As long as they balance the scoring the kids should be able to continue at the pace they are on. Wouldn't hurt to look to have more assists than goals when they go against weaker teams .

Who cares if they put up consistant numbers mom,I get it when they need to put up those numbers when trying to win a game but to do so in games that they are going to win easily without them is bad sportsmanship and being a bad teammate.Look at Shorehams last game 17-1 with 1 kid scoring 6 goals, did she need to do that to win the game or was it more to make mommy and daddy feel good.In the end it comes down to the coaches and if they let these stat builder ball hogs do it then its on them.How about being good teammates and trying to get the kids that don't usually score much a few goals.

Pass certain girls the ball on most teams and everyone else can stop running because its never getting passed back - FACT!

So true!! The coaches in my HS let the seniors just pass to each other, they never pull them off even though they see they are not passing to open players. So annoying!

Let's be honest Islip coach is not the only one clearly running up stats. Take a look at some of the score of some of the other games. Huntington, BPBP, Mt Sinai, ESM and WestHampton just to name a few double digit wins with large margins almost all season. Watched the ESM vs SWR game yesterday not one player came off the bench for ESM even with a big lead if that's not a stat building move I don't know what is. The game and coaches have changed so much this year it seems to have become all about the stats and percentages vs the development of an entire program for most of these coaches.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2014 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/10/14 01:09 PM
Too funny the Islip coach called in his stats but did not put in the assists, was this an accident or done on purpose because he realizes what a tool he will look like when the are added in the the stat builders sisters numbers. The West hampton team has become the team of get your numbers because if you pass it to any number of black holes you will never see the ball again, the coach who used to be there never would have allowed it. Girls at Westhampton , go ahead keep feeding the monsters, you know who they are.

Often the very best players on the field don't show well in goals scored all the time. Some girls have huge impacts on the field in CT, GB, assists, pressure etc..... Many times the best player on the field is not the leading goal scorer. You will often see one girl completely control a game and walk away with only a goal or two. This is the reason college coaches go to games. Don't be jealous of the goal scorers, who cares. If these girls play well rounded lacrosse, good for them, if they are a one trick pony ( go to goal with three or four fan penetration attempts without a pass) and are true black hole that is unfortunate.

All I will say is that our High School Yellow Jackets Players are black holes and when they do pass, they only pass to each other. I am sure it is true of other travel program kids but we only have YJ's that I know of. They are very good players, but so are many other girls on the team who don't play club. Very hard to root for them and its sad. Makes for a divided bench and a divided parents sideline. High School is not the same as the summer travel circuit.

Amen...


All I will say is that our High School Yellow Jackets Players are black holes and when they do pass, they only pass to each other. I am sure it is true of other travel program kids but we only have YJ's that I know of. They are very good players, but so are many other girls on the team who don't play club. Very hard to root for them and its sad. Makes for a divided bench and a divided parents sideline. High School is not the same as the summer travel circuit.


I agree that sometimes the best players are not the goal scorers. What sucks is that that's who gets the recognition in print and at award time. That's where the burn is.

I'm not a big fan of the YJ franchise but in defense of the above global statement, it's not like that on our HS team. Our YJs do a good amount of feeding to other players. We have, I think, four different clubs on our team and it's all good. We have a few black hole players but they're from different clubs, and even one or two who don't play club, they just don't feel the need to see the field and deliver a pass. <rolling eyes> That said, our coach is not affiliated with any club teams and that is a blessing.

The awards usually go to the big time point getters so it feeds into the selfish play. Its unfortunate but with the big money and year round club play it is an evil that is here to stay. I don't know if my stomach van take watching much more

Its not all the girls, some of the very best girls playing varsity are pages down on the goal list. What's annoying is that msg list the girls in order of most goals with no regards to assists or total points. NCAA tracks all stats and gives a much better view of the true story. We have a go to goal girl on our team who likely leads team in scoring, goal stats would suggest that she is best player on team but she is far from that. Very poor stick skills/speed/vision, but if you go to goal every single time you get the ball and never pass, you end up shooting 10-20 shots a game and even with a horrible goal percentage, she ends up with a fair amount of goals. It is ugly lacrosse that a good coach would correct. Seems to make mom happy.

Couldn't agree more, with everything you said, right down to the YJ coaches, playing favorites. It's ridiculous, and we keep reminding ourselves that it really doesn't mean anything, like you said - it's crap. Wish we could go back too, when the 7th & 8th graders played middle school, and 9th & most 10th played JV. It's getting out of hand!

We have YJ parents bitching and moaning that their 8th grader wasn't called up to varsity because her other YJ friends in other districts were and they need to keep up you know. Its all about them and not the district or the team. I think I just saw a 7th grader commit lol. These 8th and 9th graders aren't ready to hang around with seniors and shouldn't be rushing it

You people are such a bunch of blind morons. Coaches want to win and will play the kids who give them the best chance at doing so. You are the typical parents that always feel your kid is being unfairly treated when in reality your kid is not that good. If these YJ kids were as bad as you say with better kids sitting on the bench then why do sonny YJ kids get committed to so many good schools and start at sonny top level programs. Stop blaming YJ because your kid cannot catch the ball.

My daughter goes to a school where only juniors and seniors play varsity and the occasional sophomore gets called up only if there is a positional need. So, they will never win a championship because they don't always have their best players on varsity, but you know that going in and shouldn't complain about it. Personally I like it. Its not all about winning. And...they have numerous college commits on their team, so its clearly not always about playing varsity as a 9th grader.

You are the perfect example of why parents of girls on other club teams dislike YJ parents in general. My daughter can catch the ball - even a bad pass - and is committed. And believe it or not, she doesn't play for YJ smile

You have no idea what you're talking about, OR maybe you're daughter is one of the girls getting the special treatment. My school doesn't have this problem, but I'm smart enough to understand that it does happen, but not everywhere. Some parents complain, when yes, they're kids might be on the bench because they're not as good. But for you to say that ALL varsity coaches are always putting the best players on the field, shows that you don't know what you're talking about. There are many coaches that definitely have favorites, for various reasons. Each school is different, so you can't generalize, like you just ignorantly did. If anyone's a blind moron here, it's you (not to mention immature, and classless).

Agreed. Defenders are completely ignored by MSG. Coaches don't keep track of any stats past goals, assists and saves. You can cause all the turnovers and get all the ground balls and you get a "good game," a pat on the back, and nothing else while the kid with tunnel vision who can't even go lefty gets her name in the paper, again. It's frustrating.

Yes, if most kids below 10th grade played JV, there would be way less cut throat behavior (mostly from parents), and kids worried about not making varsity with their friends, or girls they're in competition with. It would take so much pressure off, and let these YOUNG girls develop appropriately. Some of these girls are dying to make varsity, just for the status, and to avoid humiliation. They'd rather make varsity and not play, then play a ton on JV, and get valuable experience. They're too young to understand how to make that decision, and the parents are too crazy and caught up, to make it for them!

Any sophomore, freshmen, etc. on a Varsity team that does not play is wasting their time. It is a poor decision by the parents to have their girls stand on the sidelines when they could be playing, or starting, on JV. Playing competitive, live games against an opponent far out ways development from just practicing. Beware of the girls who are now on JV, playing every day, taking your position next year. Then your high school career ends up being completely unfulfilled.

"You have no idea what you're talking about, OR maybe you're daughter is one of the girls getting the special treatment. My school doesn't have this problem, but I'm smart enough to understand that it does happen, but not everywhere. Some parents complain, when yes, they're kids might be on the bench because they're not as good. But for you to say that ALL varsity coaches are always putting the best players on the field, shows that you don't know what you're talking about. There are many coaches that definitely have favorites, for various reasons. Each school is different, so you can't generalize, like you just ignorantly did. If anyone's a blind moron here, it's you (not to mention immature, and classless)."


Who is the moron, where does it say ALL varsity coaches,if you are going to put a word in caps that you claim someone posted make sure they actually did.I have yet to see the varsity coach that does not want to win a game just because they don't agree with mommy that her daughter is a starter does not mean they want to lose. Name the coach that does not want to win and also name the coach that does not play favorites , they all do. Hey moron any coach that puts starters on the field is playing favorites.

Why is it when my daughter is asked what colleges she is applying to she smiles and gives you a list but when you ask a travel player (while playing for HS team) they are so secretive? Another reason it hard to root for them. Very sad

Not for nothing but clubs tell the families not to broadcast from where their looks are coming from. Probably to reduce friction.

In my own experience, in another sport, my daughter had a coach coming here to see her play and her "friend" all of a sudden was contacting that coach to see her (the friend) play as well despite having no prior interest in that school. Ie., jumping on our bandwagon because it was convenient (and possibly another direct challenge to my kid, because that was going on as well). I did not appreciate that at all. The other parents even violated NCAA guidelines regarding contact when I was playing by the rules. In the end, neither girl chose that school but the whole experience put a nail in coffin of that friendship. So yeah, since then I've played my cards closer.

Don't be sorry that you are so clueless, understand your kid is not very good and you need to blame politics as to why she does not play. The reason she does not play is you tell her it's unfair that she is sitting on the bench when what you should be telling her is too learn how to use her left hand , work harder, stop making excuses and most importantly stop listening to you .

Again, no idea what you're talking about. I'm not blaming politics, or anything else. We were talking about how some of the HS coaches don't always play the best players, due to various reasons. If you disagree with that, you're clueless. This has nothing to do with my daughter, who's a lefty moron...your posts tell me how ignorant you are, and you're not even really understanding the issue, so never mind. I'm done with you.

Younger girls playing up means they share the field with the older girls, it doesn't mean they magically turn into upper classmen. The coach should control the environment at games/practice, on the bus and in the locker room, parents should control social activities outside of lacrosse. In a properly controlled program there should be no issues with younger girls playing up. If there are issues it falls on the coaches and the parents failure to monitor and control the situation.

Obviously every situation is different. This will depend hugely on the kid. Some kids will always do the right thing in nearly all situations. If your kid is physically up to the task and you feel comfortable with them playing up, that's awesome, do it. Obviously some people don't feel comfortable with it, don't do it. I'm sure not all the cases of girls playing up are ideal, but don't try to generalize and say no girls should play up, many of them end up being the best players on the team, with none of the negative stuff people are worried about ever happening.

It's very sad and obvious that all you parents talking about these amazing athletes are jealous and your kids clearly are trailing the pack athletically.
These committed athletes train all year round and are dedicated to being the best. I am sure that if your kid was called by a top D1 school you would all be singing a different tune. Grow up and stop being pathetic jealous parents with nothing better to do than talk about innocent kids. Focus on your kids training they obviously need some. Lots of luck, clearly you need it.

It's very sad to hear you pathetic jealous parents talking about innocent kids. LOSERS! These are exceptional, smart athletes that train all year long to strive to play the very best they can. Good for them if they are committed to college early. You are obviously bitter because your so called "athletes " are not exactly athletes. Maybe your kids should train harder. It's just so sad how jealous you all sound, especially of the "yellow jackets" which by the way are the best players in the country. So don't hate.....TRAIN YOUR KIDS!

So says the ball hogs mom . Everyone knows this kid is building her stats against weaker teams ,scoring tons of points in games her team does not need her to do so. Teamates , parents, coaches from high school and her travel teams know that the kid is all about getting hers if it helps the team or not she does not care. On a semi positive note her parents are very upfront that they believe she is the best player in her age and are not shy about letting people know everything should go thru her in their minds, at least they are honest about it.

That's quite a blanket statement for yj players. Maybe the top half dozen from blue and one or two from fake blue would be considered among the top in country. Many of the lower team kids still can't catch/ throw, and will never progress to that point. Seriously some of the best and some of the worst players on our town and school teams are yj, same goes for TG. It is funny when a group of opposing girls show up all decked out head to toe in YJ gear, used to be scarey, now you don't know what you'll get.

Look for the players on the field who can't throw, catch, shoot, pass, defend, dodge, switch hands, run, and you will know who the non club players are. Oh wait, the clubs have become so diluted that half of them can't play either. Many of these players are skulled beyond mommy comprehension.

This starts in PAL. Club girls thinking they are already the best, don't pass to anyone but another club kid, force it to goal and lose the ball. It starts with the parents thinking just cause they play club they are better and they teach that to there kids.

Yeah, but the flip side is some of those PAL players literally can't catch or throw, they are just there for the social aspect. Okay, fine, but it does create a situation of very mismatched skillsets. And woe betide any PAL coaches who try to create an A team and a B team, our lax community went ballistic when that was attempted.

2 teams in a PAL age group? Our towns PAL program is dying after being mis managed and catering to the club kids. Lots of good athletes are walking away

Town kids who participate in travel greatly enhance many teams. Any and every good team I can think of is littered with travel kids. That certainly doesn't mean all the travel girls are good, some are horrible. It also doesn't mean the girls who don't play travel are necessarily bad, but just like anything else in life, those who spend more time doing something at a higher level often makes them better at it than those who do not.

I think that non-travel parents are frustrated with the travel kids because on average, they are much better that non-travel (there are exceptions!)
Remember these kids invested countless hours and dollars on training. There families sacrificed vacations and other luxuries to get there girls to this point. It's ok that some don't want to make that kind of investment, but you can't be mad that your daughter isn't playing if you don't make lacrosse a priority in your life. It works this way with most things in life!

Sounds like it was more about a vacation than competition. KIds probably had a pick in the destination and vetoed the poconos when they could have been with the family in the cayman islands

Had a chance to watch St. Anthony's play a very over matched Holy Trinity Team today and was very impressed with how the friars won with dignity and class. Game was14-3 at halftime and ended 15-3 ,starters were out by half way thru the first and coaching staff managed to not embarrass their opponent. Also kudos to their goalie for for a very sportsmen like gesture when she knelt to see if an injured girl was ok.

st Anthonys should be ashamed of themselves for only beating a town team ( Farmingdale by 1 goal). You are a select team from every town on Long Island. shame on you ... Go Dalers

Total class. This new coach is impressive with her lacrosse acumen and the way she carries herself. She is a great role model to these high school girls.

ashamed of themselves? They won against a strong team (farmingdale).

Why do some of these town teams have such an issue with St Anthony girls team?

Farmingdale, Manhasset, GC are all great teams too, so just enjoy the local high--end competition.

Its essentially a summer travel team vs a summer town team argument. Also some of these coaches have spent countless hours developing kids only to have them leave the program. I could see the frustration of a coach who brings a kid with a lot of potential up in 8th grade and works them into games etc, only to have them leave.That being said who cares its not like St.Anthony is standing in your way of a state championship.

We see it on our team, when one girl gets hot, the other travel girls start pressing and their parents start pacing! Nothing worse than losing and watching selfish play. If you are going to go down, go with good team chemistry and a nice parents sideline.

What eventually happens is the other kids on the team both travel and high school end up knowing the kid is only out to get hers and just stop passing to her.

You talk about pathetic jealous parents talking about "innocent kids", the go on to say your "athletes" are not exactly athletes and "train your kids". What about the "innocent kids" who's parents can't afford or have the time to take their kids all the camps, clinics, private lessons, and travel programs. I guess they can't play for their school team either, no one will ever pass them the ball. The days of just trying out for a sport/team she enjoys are over. Lacrosse has turned into a sport for the middle to upper class, where you can buy skill.

I'm calling bs on that comment. My kid is from a middle class family that goes paycheck to paycheck. When she was in 4th grade I took her to the local school 3 days a week and had her play wall ball for 45 min . It was free and has made her into a kid with great stick skills . All for free.

especially of the "yellow jackets" which by the way are the best players in the country.


at what age are they the best in the country? I think some other teams have won the championships in Florida the last couple years, not the yellow jackets. where do you get your facts?

So says the ball hogs mom . Everyone knows this kid is building her stats against weaker teams ,scoring tons of points in games her team does not need her to do so. Teamates , parents, coaches from high school and her travel teams know that the kid is all about getting hers if it helps the team or not she does not care. On a semi positive note her parents are very upfront that they believe she is the best player in her age and are not shy about letting people know everything should go thru her in their minds, at least they are honest about it.

This poster hit right on the head! Parents get into the kids ear and the kid does what mommy and daddy say. Very selfish on this families part, the let me get mine mentality has spilled into our community that's why people don't care for you and what you are bringing to our high school "TEAM". It is my understanding that the sentiment has also rolled over to her YJ team as well, too good to attend all of the "YJ" tourneys "why waste my time". What happened stick it out until all of your "YJ" teammates get recruited. CR better tighten up her ship


What eventually happens is the other kids on the team both travel and high school end up knowing the kid is only out to get hers and just stop passing to her. In the end it all hurts the team but that is what you get when one kid is all about herself and the coaches allow it. look at the leader board for scoring you have kids with 10x more goals than assists,sorry but kids with that ratio are ball hogs.The best kids are great players who make the kids around them better.

Unless you are at every game for a particular school you do not really have any right to call any individual a ball hog based off numbers you see on Newsday. Are you taking into consideration shot %? Or how about whether or not the goals they score are assisted on? Just because someone is high on goals, doesn't mean they are hogging the ball. If they are getting open and putting the ball away, then good on them! There are many more stats that need to be taken into consideration. Is the team winning? Are they competing with the top teams in the division? We all need to stop being so black and white. In the game of lacrosse, there is a lot of gray area.

On our team we now have pissed off upper classman YJ's with underclassman YJ's. When the uppers came through the last couple of years we all had to eat it. Now they are eating it and they aren't happy. See we told you it didn't feel too good.

And that pretty much is not going to happen when playing a higher level team. It's pretty darn rare for anyone to get through a good defense. This is why the numbers-girls run up their stats while playing weaker teams, because they can't when they're playing the stronger teams.

Not sure of many age groups but YJ has the best players in the 2016 age group. They have beaten TG 2016 every time they have played (4-5 times), they have beaten MD the last 4-5 times they have played, beaten Heroes every time. Yes they have not won the Florida tournament so if you want to say TG is best U15 team based on that one tournament go ahead , the only issue is that is not an actual team that plays together ever again.

I guess they can't play for their school team either, no one will ever pass them the ball. The days of just trying out for a sport/team she enjoys are over. Lacrosse has turned into a sport for the middle to upper class, where you can buy skill.


I'm calling bs on that comment. My kid is from a middle class family that goes paycheck to paycheck. When she was in 4th grade I took her to the local school 3 days a week and had her play wall ball for 45 min . It was free and has made her into a kid with great stick skills . All for free.

I agree in what your saying however the fact remains true most coaches, especially the ones who coach yello Jackets during the summer and then coach high school teams as well. DO not give their non travel p[layers a second glance or chance. In our district if the YJ girl who is on the blue team screws up the coach doesnt even look to pul;l that kid out, but if the non YJ player or the non blue player screws up she pretty much doesnt see the field at all ever again. I think that high school ADs should start going back to the day where it was a conflict of interest to coach travel over the summer and then your high school team. It is forces people to feel like they need to participate or there kid will be left behind. My daughter chose to work out on her own and sat the bench all four years on her high school varsity team. Even as a committed senior she watched freshman coming and going on the field but never touched it. SHe attended summer camps for the schools she was interested in both academically and athletically and was recruited. SHe currently plays at a middle of the bunch D1 school and is getting more playing time then some of the travel players who spent thousands of dollars getting the same looks. Too much emphasis on the travel programs and the winning at all costs in high school. A girl who loves the sport and is in her junior of college playing and getting a great education at one point almost walked away from the sport becaue a high school coach wouldnt give her the chance.

Winning by 2 goals is not beating up anyone a TG U-15 Parent

Thanks for your encouragement, my daughter loves the sport and wants to play in college, but is not playing much on varsity as the younger girls are getting lots of time. While my daughter does play travel which she is very happy with, she is not on YJ and our varsity coach is a YJ coach, and definitely favors the YJ girls. The coach asked my daughter who her travel coach was and laughed at her when she said the name, very condescending. And I agree with you the YJ girls make mistakes and never get pulled as other girls do, and never get back in the game. I still don't understand why they don't substitute much, but I'm hearing that's with a lot of girls varsity coaches. It's a big field, girls are winded, jogging, leaning on their sticks and don't get taken out. They need a break, there are plenty of subs, it's not a big dropoff.

Did anyone ask about TG moron? Yes YJ 2016 has beaten TG in some close games some by 1 goal some by more the point is they have beaten them every time . Yes the TG U15 team won the Florida tournament so they get the U15 championship, still does not change the fact that YJ 2016 has beaten TG 2016 5 x in a row and every game they have ever played.

Oh... I didn't know it was appropriate to call out specific CHILDREN on here. But since we are, if you have seen HER play, the kid puts away almost every shot she takes. Her % has to be 80 or above. From when we have seen her, she is quick and gets open ALOT. Her teammates look for her cause she puts it away consistently. I've seen her go to goal off transition but only when people don't slide to her. Has she forced shots? I'm sure she probably has, but who doesn't at some point?

Looking at scores, and seeing some of those games myself, padding stats would be if they were killing every team by a ton and she was the only one shooting. Not the case with them or her this year. Most of their games were close at half time and even the stronger teams have not shut her down. Give a consistent shooter some credit.

Whether you choose to believe this or not… I have no children in the division at all. I do however, break down a lot of video for various coaches, which is how I have seen some of their games (they have played many of the top teams towards beginning of season). I was directed towards these forums due to the entertainment value and wanted to take the opp to stand up for all the players that should not be brought into any discussion in a negative way.

I choose not to believe it because my kid plays on that team and she has never met a shot she will not take, shoots from outside the 8 meter consistently .Only involved in the offense when shooting otherwise just runs around in the 8 meter clogging it up for everyone else and when that does not work pop out and shoot from way outside. You can guarantee when she touches it she shoots it.

haha. ok then. What is her shot percentage then? how often do her teammates give her the ball. And has she caused her team to lose any game by hogging the ball? Food for thought. I can't give you those answers since I am not related, nor have I seen every single game. If you are a parent (which I doubt you are) I think it is sad that you are talking about someone from your community and on your daughters team. The downfall of many teams is the parents that cannot seem to get along and are in more competition with each other, then the actual children. I can only hope your daughter is able to talk out her frustrations in person and not behind an online forum. (if in fact your daughter is actually on that team)

I do have a comment. Sometimes teams have a lopsided offense. Perhaps the high scoring girl DOES attempt to feed her teammates and they just can't finish. Without the finishing goal, there is no assist stat. Also, if the same player has an awesome finish, everyone of her teammates can rack up assists because they know if they feed her, she will score. So, I do not believe that a disproportionate ratio of goals and assists automatically deems a player the tag "selfish".

define "disproportionate ratio". If there is an issue the girls and folks know what is what

Exactly, just because someone has alot of goals doesnt mean they arent passing. Player cant have the assist and goal someone has to convert the pass.

True, In addition, so many goals are scored off free positions. Some great assists go unrecognized in this game because of shooting space and fouls in the 8m.

Is this a joke , the high school game is too easy for her, then why has Westhampton lost so many close games. If the game is so easy for this kid she should have thought about challenging herself more at the next level. Dont fool yourselves , go watch any of these kids who have such a high goals to assist ratio and you will find a ball hog, look at Westhamptons stats and there is not alot of pass, catch , shot going on. That being said I do not blame the kid for being a ball hog , maybe the coach tells her to do so, maybe there are few other offensive options on that team. When we played them the kid is a good solid player who has a sister on the team clearly looking to pass to her, if it works I would tell them to continue, 80 % shooting , not even close in our game .High school game too easy for her , not even remotely close.

Exactly right. Also, an assit is recorded if there is little or no steps taken before the shot. Maybe the high scorer is in fact feeding to her teammates and they are scoring "unassisted goals". There would be no documented credit for that play.
So you really can't assume selfishness by stats alone

Most of their games were close at half time and even the stronger teams have not shut her down. Give a consistent shooter some credit.


Ok Mom


Whether you choose to believe this or not… I have no children in the division at all. I do however, break down a lot of video for various coaches, which is how I have seen some of their games (they have played many of the top teams towards beginning of season). I was directed towards these forums due to the entertainment value and wanted to take the opp to stand up for all the players that should not be brought into any discussion in a negative way.


Uh......yeah right.

The difference is no kid appears to have been left in the game to be a stat builder,.


talk about Stat Builders..the sisters on Islip combined for 23 points in a 19-7 victory over Deer Park.. with one sister accounting for 15 points

The Ball Hog sisters accounted for 17 points tonight against Hampton Bays. Hey coach you should be so proud , grow a set and do what's right. Hey mom and dad if the coach won't do what's right maybe you should . So your ball hog kids scored 17 points against essentially a JV team , any parent who actually believed in their kids abilities would not allow this. Hopefully the Islip AD is not as impotent as the Islip coach , putting up 22 against Hampton Bays , Islip pride at its best.

I choose not to believe it because my kid plays on that team and she has never met a shot she will not take, shoots from outside the 8 meter consistently .Only involved in the offense when shooting otherwise just runs around in the 8 meter clogging it up for everyone else and when that does not work pop out and shoot from way outside. You can guarantee when she touches it she shoots it.


haha. ok then. What is her shot percentage then? how often do her teammates give her the ball. And has she caused her team to lose any game by hogging the ball? Food for thought. I can't give you those answers since I am not related, nor have I seen every single game. If you are a parent (which I doubt you are) I think it is sad that you are talking about someone from your community and on your daughters team. The downfall of many teams is the parents that cannot seem to get along and are in more competition with each other, then the actual children. I can only hope your daughter is able to talk out her frustrations in person and not behind an online forum. (if in fact your daughter is actually on that team)


"Not related" I don't think so , seems to be a little Freudian slip.

You're right, but YJ director might take it easy on YJ coach, and not embarrass him. For some reason, Connetquot girls are never a contender...

The stat padding discussion was not about Islip. Maybe go take a Valium and relax. Sometimes stronger teams will score alot when playing very weak teams. Been happening since the beginning of time. If your daughter wants the ball she should go get it......not you but her. SHE needs to step up and challenge the Alpha kids. Maybe she doesn't want to and is comfortable being a role player. Either way you need to take it easy and stop bashing these girls. Or maybe we should look at you and criticize your accomplishments because I'm sure you bypassed someone along the way to gain success. Maybe you should have let them get the promotion or better grade etc... That's only fair right?

Why the need to be so derogatory towards such sweet girls. The reality is that this team is never making the counties and the games are the only opportunity for them to be recognizes, which they should be. Stop being jealous and immature and respect the fact that they are doing everything they can to get a medicos team to win.

Is this a joke, there team would have beat HB if they were not even there so that excuse is just BS. Respect for the team you are playing starts w having self respect and when you have kids like this it seems obvious they are not confident in themselves , very much like kids that are bullies.As far as being recognized they are being recognized for the ball hogs they are. We played them earlier in the year w a team that basically would struggle at the JV level, shooting behing their back and laughing at their opponent while up by over 10 and the game obviously not going to be competitive, was not impressive just pathetic.

Islip beat the teams they should have beat and their three losses were against two teams better than them (BBP and Say) and a team with good talent but bad coaching (MP). The sisters do look like they score against all teams but I don't think they have enough supporting talent. I have one girl playing lax but when my sons played on the same team, they did have a tendency to look to each other to pass the ball to.
Still don't totally get the power point thing (or whatever it's called) but Islip has three games left that they could possibly win to make the playoffs...let them get the last seed and have ESM give them a beating!

The point is they have played against several teams who are terrible and there is no need for the two ball hogs to score 17 points in games they would win by 10 plus if they didn't. It's poor sportsmanship plain and simple , add in the shooting behind your back crap and it just goes to show the coach of Islip is afraid to teach the kids the right thing to do.

Smithtown West and the Middle County Girls Varsity was the worst officiated game ever. I have seen some bad games before but this takes the cake. It really makes me believe that the Officials wanted Middle County to win at all cost.

I will overlook the fact the calls were one sided and the minor fouls were against Smithtown West, But this takes the cake. One Middle County parent yelled out offside. When I heard that I looked at the West girls and found all 4 girls back from the line than the whistle blew. The Ref stop play and looked at the closest girl to the restraining line and told her she was offside and gave possession to Middle County. When play started again the ball move down field some 40 to 50 yards down field the same Ref stop play and handed out a Red card to a West player some 30 yard behind him for language. Keep in mind the Ref was running with the ball watching play and could not see who said what. Now with that said if the Ref didn’t know who said what? Don’t you think the appropriate response was to hand out a yellow to the coach as a warning? No what the Ref did was target one of West best players for draw control and took her out of the game which gave Middle County a 9 point lead at half. Turns out the west player who got the Red card did not say a thing it was and second west player who admitted she was the one with the language problem and all she said was F*** Me it wasn’t directed to anyone.

I am not condoning bad language it has no place on the field, but it happens! However in this case it was not directed to any officials. A red card was not warranted. Interestedly enough in all three games that Smithtown West was carded we lost and all those games we had the Ref as an official.

Something to think about??????

Refs want to to get in, get out, get paid all without getting screamed at. If you think they care who wins you are crazy. Only thing that might not help with the next call is if your coach is all over them verbally.

Not true at all. There is one ref in Nassau that makes every game about him. Other refs change the way they call the game when they work with him.

The guy is a complete clown, does not know the rules ,is overly confrontational, actually roots for certain teams and players while he is reffing.He clearly has little man syndrome , every coach I have spoken with knows he is a clown and consistenly give him a low rating yet he is still allowed to be out there. Almost every game the guy is involved with becomes dangerous .

manhasset wasn't there it was Northport. And sadly although a good game lost to Darien.

Northport lost to Wilton. Manhasset beat Darien 17-6. All in all a dominant showing by Strong Island!

Keep in mind the Ref was running with the ball watching play and could not see who said what. Now with that said if the Ref didn’t know who said what? Don’t you think the appropriate response was to hand out a yellow to the coach as a warning? No what the Ref did was target one of West best players for draw control and took her out of the game which gave Middle County a 9 point lead at half. Turns out the west player who got the Red card did not say a thing it was and second west player who admitted she was the one with the language problem and all she said was F*** Me it wasn’t directed to anyone.

I am not condoning bad language it has no place on the field, but it happens! However in this case it was not directed to any officials. A red card was not warranted. Interestedly enough in all three games that Smithtown West was carded we lost and all those games we had the Ref as an official.


So that girl should not have played in today's game correct? After getting a ref card she should not be able to play today correct?



Something to think about??????


Please no distraction to the issue of the officials. This has nothing to do with splitting Middle County.

How do they determine who makes the playoffs in Div II. The Section XI bracket shows 7 teams and that makes no sense to me; why not 8? I thought this was asked before, but is this like girls soccer or bb where you make the playoffs if you have a .500 record or better of do other factors come into play where you can miss the playoffs even if you have a .500 record or better in your Div? Thanks for any info anyone can share.

Taken from US lacrosse Women's rule book;

Ejection/Suspension
Section 34. The official has the power to eject without any previous warning any
player guilty of flagrant or repeated violation of the rules, dissent, misconduct, or
abusive language. This immediate ejection will be noted by issuing a red card. Any
player receiving a red card (ejected) must leave the field and enter the penalty area
for four minutes of elapsed playing time and no substitute may take her place during
that four-minute period. Any player receiving a second yellow card (suspended) must
leave the field and enter the penalty area for two minutes of elapsed playing time and
no substitute may take her place during that two-minute period. Once the full penalty
time has been served, the team may substitute another player for the player who has
been ejected or suspended. Anyone receiving two yellow cards (suspended) or a red
card (ejected) in the game will not be eligible for further participation in that game.
Any ejected player receiving a red card will be prohibited from participating in the team’s next game. An ejected player must serve her next-game suspension in her team’s bench area for the entire game including on-field pre-game, game or postgame activities. The ejected player may not be dressed in her game uniform.

Glad to see West Babylon "stud" rack up the points today against Commack. When will these coaches get a clue? Stop padding stats!!

Look at West Islip - they spread the scoring and that is why they are 11-0. But the Newsday lax reporter will keep reporting and tweeting about girls who "put up big numbers' even if they are against weak opponents. Same guy picks the best players. Joke!

Top seven teams by power rating. Top team gets a bye. Great scramble for that last spot. First six teams look set.

No, officials carry three cards, one red, one yellow, and one green. They are instructed to separate them when issuing a card so there's no confusion.

The players are read sportsmanship rules by officials at the beginning of each game issued by NYSPHSAA. The rules specifically addresses negative statements and actions. It also states that a penalty will be assessed and officials are "instructed not to give warnings."

First off a past president with continued involvement in my book would qualify in my book as a big wig. Second to say no interaction with the boys officiating is just ignorant. Third the fact that you choose not to address the point that the guy is a horrendous ref is telling. The guy is a clown at best who acts like a smart --- while he is reffing and a coward while not reffing.Speak to the other officials and even they will tell you he is a clown and hate being assigned with the guy. He is an angry little man because he feels his superstar daughter was slighted years ago because she was on team 2 or 3 and he thought she should be on the US team. A bad ref is one thing a bad ref who is biased, has a horrible attitude,and has an agenda is unacceptable and this clown should be removed.

Amen! Long over due!
If transfers can't play how has the girl from Huntington played in 11 games?


That is a good question - is the rule different when player transfers form public to catholic (St. A's player) versus catholic to public (Huntington)?

7-7 may not be enough with the strength of schedule . They have to play and beat the upper half of the division to make it. Maybe with a little help from others & if they go 8-6.I hope you make it!

I heard Connetquot lost their goalie for remainder of the year due to a concusion he got from the coach warming him up

Look at the other 5-5 teams Bayshore is 19 points higher in the power rankings due to their strength of schedule.

Green is some sort of warning, like if a girl has earrings in. I don't know what happens past that though with a green card.

if the transfers weren't phenomenal players that your team will be playing against real soon , would you really care about transfer rules? amazing how this transfer rule talk comes up from different directions just a couple of weeks before the biggest rivalry games of the season . Coincidence ?

Issuance of Cards
Delay of Game
Section 28. Timeout must be called to administer a delay of game card. The first
violation should be followed by a green card which shall be recorded in the scorebook
against the offending team. A change of possession takes place if applicable for the
minor foul.
On the next delay of game the official will show a green and yellow card to the
offending player and award the appropriate penalty (major foul). The offending player
may remain in the game.
Any subsequent delay of game offenses will result in a green and red card being
given to the offending player and award the appropriate penalty (major foul). The
player receiving the green/red card must leave the field and enter the penalty area for
2 minutes of elapsed playing time, which will carry over to the second half or overtime
if necessary. A substitute must take her place. The official timer will be responsible for
timing the 2 minutes and indicating to the scorer when the player may return.

Definitely not alone, classic example of a teacher in the district maintaining a coaching position without developing the program thru involvemnet with the youth. In addition, not being held to any standard.
Coach has had many pass thru this program

I believe that is a Catholic school league rule and was designed to prevent people from transferring in solely for sports. If a player transfers in, they are inlegible to play in league games that next season or year (not sure which)

You are alone , just same anonymous coward posting about a coach who's team is unsuccessful because the kids are not very good, they will be good in a couple years as they have talented youth teams


but aren't you posting anonymously, and insulting people too? and he's a coward?


The difference [lacrosse] is I am posting about an anonymous person he is not, if you do not see the difference your also a moron

I can personally say my daughter was coached by coach P for YJ and he is by far a great coach.

[Tte=Anonymous]from what I understand is the Smith e coach is new this year, in the past the coach would never allow this to happen. and yes the 2 top players played all but n3-5 minutes of the game and there were girls that did not see any playing time on the smithtown bench [/quote]
I can't believe that people have this much time on their hands to even post about this! The bench was in fact cleared and every other team in the league has beat them by the same amount. As for the "the players", get used to it...they are talented!

enough with beating up on Smithtown east. It was one player, her own team mates were embarrassed she kept scoring. East has a strong team and classy players please do not define this team from the actions of one player and a coach with an EGO

OK so a few comments about the Copiague team you all like to trash. The one thing I see about these girls is they do not give up they will play there hearts out till the end of the game. Thank you west Islip for stepping up and trying to help get younger girls involved. The Coaches are dedicated as there is only one for varsity, JV and middle school. Shame on AD for not knowing fields are different for girls lacrosse and had girls practice field lined for boys lacrosse. It is hard to get good practice when fields are incorrect. also shame on the union building and grounds staff that sat around and could not get the fields lined for the girls. everyone loves to blame the coaches but the fact is the district has failed.

As another season winds down, what's everyone's thought after the 2nd year of the D1 super conference that combined small and large schools during the season and then sends them all back to their division by size for the playoffs?

When teams run about the score, it is ALWAYS the coach's fault. He or she can easily bench kids or provide instruction to limit goals. Coaches should be embarrassed when they pummel a clearly overmatched squad.

Wantagh beats farmingdale and TW gets a yellow card. She runs up an down the sidelines yelling and screaming throughout the entire game. She attempts to intimidate the refs as well as the opposing players. Someone should get this women under control. Hey TW, shut your mouth and let the girls on the field decide the game! And to the other coaches, players, and fans of Farmimgdale thank you for a great lax game that was enjoyable to watch. Players on both sides were a pleasure to watch play. Good luck to both teams in the playoffs.

Stop exaggerating , there are rules to how far a coach can go toward the opposing teams bench area and they cannot get very close. If she were not following the rules then it would be up to the refs to enforce and your coach to remind her and the refs.

This is not new for her, she does in most games. She did it last year in a game we played against her and she did it again this year. Throw her out of the game already.

This weeks complete tool award goes to the Bellport coach. One of the worst teams out there puts a 20-0 beat down on a team who is really a middle school team and should not be playing. I get it , you got kids to score who probably never have before but you and your team should understand more than most what it feels like to be on the other end of that beating.

THE "COME ON MAN" AWARD goes to Bellport. come on man you couldnt shut the scoring down at 12 or 13 in game against Southhampton/Ross (0 - 6). Did you have to put up 20. And 19 against Copaigue ( 0 - 11). You team is going nowhere. You lost to Mattituck by 8 goals. and Huntington by 11 and SWR by 10. They could have put up 30 on you if they wanted.

More like a development league (sorry brentwood) but lets let the lower competing teams have some good LAX. Do you really think Lindy, N. bab and the smithtown teams like these blowouts against Copiague. Honesstly how do you stop a player from scoring against copiague when the player never sees playing time and wants th coach to play them

Just a Tip that people forget !

Walt Whitman had a playoff team last year (10-6) and played W Babylon tough in its playoff game. But that senior class was a bunch of athletes. Three players went on to play in college, one a NESCAC team. This year they have D2 bound senior and a very good junior and nothing else. They have no youth program and weak coaching.

Lindenhurst was also a playoff team last year. Produced a stellar goalie.

Some school programs will have their up and downs without promoting the sport at youth levels.

Why isn't suffolk structured like Nassau? Then all the padding points issues go away and it would be better for comparing points on long island.

Be careful of power rankings as it has a lot to do with who you play. Having said that, Mt Sinai would do just fine against any team in Suffolk.

your a joke by saying who cares. Just because a school is D2 doesn't make it a bad program. I'm sure with of these schools could give any of the top D1 teams a run for their money ESM has a crazy amount of D1 committed players and All Americans and Westhampton has the same. I'm sure you think Mt Sinai is weak too!! They could beat any of the D1 schools it's just about school size people not about talent so get over the fact that D2 and 3 mean nothing bc more top college players are out of 2/3 then 1 this year!!

You are either ignorant or arrogant! Either way you are clueless! Suffolk D1 out of conference record is 19W 20L's. many of the losses coming to Suffolk D 2 (class C and B) teams. Suffolk Division 2's out of conference record is 21-9!! Are there good teams in D1? Yes, but there are probably more strong teams in D2! BTW lax power thinks so too!

Doesn't matter who they played. Using the formula that ranks all teams in the division, they were a playoff team. That is all that counts.

My question is the Developmental Division. You can't base it on the prior year. How do you establish this division?

thats more like LIJ soccer...Section XI already has a developmental league for soccer and it includes schools of all size.
This might be an oversimplification but I would take the four lowest teams from Div 1 and 2 and put them in the league. They would play each other twice for a total of 14 league games and I would take the best 2 D1 and D2 teams and move them back and take the worst 2 Div 1/2 teams in the regular league and move them to this league on a yearly basis I don't think size of the school matter but the quality of the lacrosse does.

How come Farmingdale (D1 school ) lost to Darien while Manhasset D2 school beat them. So much for the theory of D2 being weaker then 1

you can include Bayport to that list! BTW they beat EI pretty soundly!
that's a pretty fun quote Bayport being included in this list for beating a 4-7 team soundly...by 4 goals!! Nice try Bayport parent when you beat teams like Sayville, Mt Sinai, West Hampton and ESM then you can maybe be considered


Not to knock Bayport here, they are a decent team, but EI seems to have fallen off a cliff!

I think you are underestimating BBP a little. That said, here are the B division tiers

ESM
Huntington

didn't play Huntington but the results speak for themselves

Say
BBP

good teams; not as good as the top 2


WH
ISl
MP
RP

3 of them should make the playoffs but any of them could beat the other one on a given day but all four would have a very tough time against the top 2 and a tough time against the next 2

I don't want to come across as a moto but thats the way B division shapes up

You are either ignorant or arrogant! Either way you are clueless! Suffolk D1 out of conference record is 19W 20L's. many of the losses coming to Suffolk D 2 (class C and B) teams. Suffolk Division 2's out of conference record is 21-9!! Are there good teams in D1? Yes, but there are probably more strong teams in D2! BTW lax power thinks so too!

How long did it take you to figure that out you moron
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2014 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/06/14 01:15 AM
My question is the Developmental Division. You can't base it on the prior year. How do you establish this division?
why not? you cant base it on next year either. But you can put Bayport in the Developmental Division

Beat down #1 tomorrow at Mt Sinai. could be by 10 plus over SWR.

Another Beat down #2 at ESM. Bayport you have 0 chance . will be by 10 plus.

And yet another #3 at Sayville. Huntington over Sayville large. Sayville Goalie will keep them in the game for a while.

agree with the first two but not sure about Huntington coming out on top over sayville. We played both and I think Sayville will come out on top. Should be a great game either way. And btw who is the moron saying BP stands a chance against ESM somewhere on this thread, although ESM is plagued with injuries you couldn't tell the depth on their bench is pretty strong. I watched them play vs WH on Saturday several standing on the sidelines injured, from what I heard all D1 commits and yet even with typical non starters they looked solid. So good luck BP the score might not be by 10 but ESM will come out on top. Mt Sinai will prob have their third string in by half time against SWR...what the heck is going on w that program this year???

I disagree on all three of these predictions-don't discount any of these teams. I think bbp Esm will be closer - they have some injuries that might hurt Esm. They barely best WHB - a weaker team than BBP in my opinion

Sayville is an athletic team and very good and can hold its own with Huntington.

Mt Sinai is unstoppable but even they don't take any team for granted

Disagree on all but mount Sinai game. These games will be much closer. Team dynamics have changed due to injuries. ESM missing three key players. Bayport very strong this year

St Anthony's, are you kidding me? I was at the game yesterday against Kellenberg because we play Anthony's later this week. Are you so insecure in yourselves as a team that you can't report the Kellenberg goalie's saves. She had an awesome game against you and yet nothing was reported. Try doing the right thing, or heaven forbid, the catholic thing, and acknowledge good play when it happens. That's pathetic. Karma may just come back to bite you in the butt. You killed them in the game, isn't that enough?

Bayport descent this year, very strong not really. ESM has injury issues with several key girls out, now have 7-8 th graders starting so BBP may give them a game, BBP will struggle to score but so will ESM. Look at West Bab with a key player out they are not even remotely the same team .

I hope your scouting went well. why so interested in goalie save percentage?
st a's did nothing wrong. They do everything they can to avoid complete beat downs of weaker teams in their conference, everyone know this, in fact someone commented how they did good on taking it easy on trinity, I wish other teams on long island called off the dogs when up big

to think they on purpose deflated an opposing goalie's stats because it would look bad on them if the goalie showed more saves is just laint out weird. how could this look bad on them and who would it look bad to? sratching my head here

let the haters hate. stay the course, St anthonys. good luck on your game at the end of the week.

"Come On Man" for Kings Park (5 - 8). a poor team that has 8 losses and has beaten NOBODY decides to beat up on Southhampton (0 - 9). i THINK THE SCORE WAS 20 - 0 ..You should lose every game you play FOR NOW ON, to bad your not even making the playoffs. again. Your sportmanship is the WORST. The Kings Park AD should get a call about this game. I hope Sayville hears about this, so they beat you as bad, you know they could. like Mt sinai beat u by 8, ESM beat you by 10 Smith East beat you by 8. Lets go Sayville, throw them a beat down.....
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2014 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/07/14 12:00 AM
Kings Park ,,,, nobody should beat anybody 20 to 0 . You should be ashamed of yourselfs. I don't care who scored what or when and how many girls scored. it should never happen, even if the other team didn't have a goalie. period. you will get yours . GO SAYVILLE.

One score in.... ESM over BBP... would have been much worse if ESM didnt have injuries, main players did not play.

Was a good game but I would have to say that the ESM sideline looks like a waiting room in the ER. 2 wheelchairs a set of crutches. Three with knee braces. An All American wrapped like she's just returning from war. If ESM doesn't get healthy they threepeat for counties may not happen. With three key players out and from the looks of it two key players on the field playing through knee pain this could be the end of their reign. On the bright side their 7/8th graders held their own in the game I commend the coach for putting them in and giving them the experience it's going to make the program that much stronger down the road. BP really didn't have anything special some lucky calls to control the ball was about all I saw!!

exactly opposite of what I heard; that ESM had 14 players on the field,ie. the refs. ESM goalie came out of her circle multiple times to block bbp shooters and no shooting space was called. As of injuries, bbp has a couple of staters out with injuries as well.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2014 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/07/14 01:49 AM
This thread does supply entertainment value; if nothing else!

1-you can say what you want, but you are still not giving BBP enough credit you can only put your team out and play against whomever the other team puts out 1st someone says they will lose by 10 and when they lose by 1; it's because of the injuries you can't have it both ways.

2-KP might have won 20-0, but they had 13 girls score with no girl having more than three goals... I thought 20 was the magic number in lax, much like 5 is in soccer. It's not like when Islip or Bellport played these teams and have their stat padders score again and again.

My daughters team (a playoff contention team) not only puts in 2nd and 3rd line attack and middies in these games, they also bring in second tier defense to give them game situations; thats part of why the scores don't seem so bad and they get their team blasted all over back of the cage
A developmental league, much like they have in girls soccer, would benefit these teams.

You're kidding, right? Pretty sure BBP had most of the calls but whatever makes you feel better. Key players from BBP out? Ok

And what happened with the MS SWR beatdown? Three goals does not constitute a beatdown and it's not like MS lets up, especially against SWR. Me thinks Mr prognosticator hopefully has another line of employement!

This was a great game-always is with these two teams. Last year it was the same close game. The comment about the refs is ridiculous-there were bad calls both ways as there usually are. Keep it classy and call it what it was-a good game. The excuses make you sound like a sore loser. Not sure who BBP is out due to injuries-ESM missing four D1 players and injured players playing on the field plus 7th and 8th graders or I'm sure this game is not nearly as close.

Must agree on the sportsmanship, or lack thereof, of Kings Park. They went through a handshake line saying, "Thank the ref, thank the ref," to their opponents after losing a game. Low class.

Get over yourself , there are plenty of teams who do not run up the score , maybe they are annoyed that you add saves to your goalies stats but take saves from opposing teams .

ESM has only given up 60 goals all season. The least out of any team in any division I think. Excellent team.

thats because every other team the coach plays the entire bench so when they are in need of someone from the bench they all know what to do and arent clueless. ESM plays only certain players and never even looks to the bench. I have witnessed more girls crying after an ESM win then any other team because of this. SO glad my child doesnt go there because how can you prepare a kid to play in college or for that matter in a game in case someone gets hurt if you NEVER look to your bench for subs. I am sure this will change when the golden goalie graduates but then again who knows bc she has younger siblings coming through...after all they are the stat keepers for the team!!!

Your post makes no sense. The post was regarding the defense and the goalie, what does your post even mean. There are players hurt and the coach has put players in. Sorry if it's not who you think it should be. You're not on the team but have seen girls crying after games?

SO glad my child doesnt go there because how can you prepare a kid to play in college or for that matter in a game in case someone gets hurt if you NEVER look to your bench for subs. I am sure this will change when the golden goalie graduates but then again who knows bc she has younger siblings coming through...after all they are the stat keepers for the team!!!


Your post makes no sense. The post was regarding the defense and the goalie, what does your post even mean. There are players hurt and the coach has put players in. Sorry if it's not who you think it should be. You're not on the team but have seen girls crying after games?
ESM has three great defenders 22, 33, &7 that make up a solid crew in front of #21 the goalie. These girls are top notch in the county Im sorry no matter what anyone says they deserve praise!!

ESM has only given up 60 goals all season. The least out of any team in any division I think. Excellent team.

This wasn't my post, but I know for a fact that ESM girls cry after wins, due to no subbing, politics, coach berating them, etc

Does anyone know how the Suffolk County gilrs lacrosse playoff teams are determined. By record or total points from the Section XI standings. Does everyone qualify with a even record as in the past?

You people talking about a high school girl are such a bunch of cowards . You think her stats are padded yet you will say nothing because your a coward . My guess your own kids are embarrassed of you because you rant at home about how unfair it is and they cheat at the stats yet you are too much of a coward to do anything about it . My kid has played against her before and she is a top notch goalie and my daughter is looking forward to playing with her at school girls.Now stop being such a coward and say something if you feel there is an injustice being done otherwise shut your mouth and stop embarrassing your kid.

someone hit a nerve if your kid has never played for ESM or BT then you personally should shut your mouth!! She is a great person who cares very much for her kids. She makes mistakes like every other coach but at the end of the day all the girls love her?! So move on talk about something else

anyone who does not think becky thorn is a amazing coach after the success she brought her yellow jacket girls and high school team is stupid. the kids that don't play do not put in the off season work and there stick work proves it. sam is a outstanding goalie and to all that would like to disagrees its probably because your child got stuffed by her and shut down by esm's defense which is probably best on long island

Wow ,now I know why people think the parents of ESM players are dense, the post you are responding to was sticking up for the ESM goalie and said nothing about the coach

You people have no idea what you're saying. Samantha is an amazing goalie and I wouldn't want to have any other one. I have 2 of the greatest coaches. As for the crying we can do what ever we want. So back off!

Girls Lax Playoffs

Looks like Class A and Class C teams are all set, except for positioning.

Class B is almost set with the winner of Rocky Point Miller Place tomorrow in and the loser fighting it out with Kings Park and Bellport for the last spot; I think.

I have a novel idea...lets keep the playoff talk positive!

Points are determined by strength of schedule. The higher ranked teams from last year play the top 2/3 of the division and the bottom of the division plays the lower 2/3 of it. It is done to keep Suffolk D1 competitive and avoid the blowouts. So a middle of the road bottom half of the division team with a top 13 record most likely will not make the playoffs due to the weak teams they beat .

Today my friends Kings Park gets there's. Pay back is a b****. Sayville will spank Kings Park like a little baby. and they deserve it for putting up 20 on a 0 - 9 team.

Mt Sinai over Islip by 12, will never be close.
BBP over Harborfields large
Babylon over Comsewog by 4
ESM over Matt/Gpt large
Rocky Point over Miller Place by 2
Huntington trashes West Hampton.

someone hit a nerve if your kid has never played for ESM or BT then you personally should shut your mouth!! She is a great person who cares very much for her kids. She makes mistakes like every other coach but at the end of the day all the girls love her?! So move on talk about something else


Many of the girls definitely DO NOT love her!! That's a ridiculous statement!


Yes they do. We are the ones supporting her on here and laughing at all of you parents who have nothing better to do with your lives. Our team group chat is pretty funny talking about all of you. Best coach best team! Fact! Fact! We love you BT!!!!


Let me guess you're last name starts with an H
ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS IF YOU DONT LIVE IN OUR TOWN MIND YOUR BUSINESS NO ONE ASKS YOUR OPINION NOR DO WE WANT IT..END OF STORY!!! OUR GIRLS ARE THE TRUE DEFINITION OF FAMILY AND STAND BY EACH OTHER NO MATTER WHAT. IF THEY ARE STARTERS OR SECOND STRING THE AMOUNT THEY CARE FOR EACH OTHER IS WHAT MATTERS MOST. MOVE ON TO OTHER THINGS...PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR OWN CHILDREN!!


It's not ridiculous, and I do live in "your" town. This is an open forum, which is why you don't need to ask my opinion, and you don't decide when it's end of story.

The winning percentage of the teams that Bellport beat in D2 is .194 (14-58) plus they had Copaigue as a non league game They got an easy schedule this year because they sucked last year. They will have to put their big girl pants on next year as the competition will be tougher but they will return their big two ball hogs and I believe their third ball hog.

Bellport is playing the sister ball hog team in their last game; you know, the team that was made famous by newsday!

Mt Sinai over Islip by 12, will never be close. Spot on!
BBP over Harborfields large BBP by 2
Babylon over Comsewog by 4 Bab by 1 still winning but missing their star
ESM over Matt/Gpt large by a touchdown
Rocky Point over Miller Place by 2 Miller Place by 5
Huntington trashes West Hampton.
Hunt by 3

Every game right except for the Miller Place Win over Rocky Point and that was the closest game on paper but the spankings you envisioned did not materialize maybe because of the weather?

Forget the Newday rankings, I figured out how to truly rate all the top girls on Long Island. Come on this thread and look at the players that everyone keeps bringing up and bashing as stat ladder, ballhogs etc....... These are the top rank players. They should also include a jealousy power ranking, so you parents feel like you helped contributed to something.

You are a fool if you think someone will sign their name to a true yet damaging post. You are also a fool if you believe everything you read.

Where there is smoke there is usually fire... And every story has at least 3 sides, sometimes even more!

Drop the details so we can evaluate the situation. For those of you who say hiding behind a post is cowardly... I say your statement are bully like. This is the new age with constant media. We all need to learn how to deal and process the information.

Playoffs look to be as follows for B

ESM # 1.. did enough early on to get the seed even with one more game left

# 2 and # 3: Sayville and Huntington (either combination depending on last game of season)

#4 and # 5: Islip and WH

# 6 seems to be set for Miller Place with a win against RP

# 7 seems to be Rocky Point with EH coming in at # 8

West Islip has beaten everyone in D1. They haven't blown away the top teams but have beaten them all. Hauppauge has a couple of losses (to Sachem East and Northport) which makes you question where they really are. But they have some impressive wins (vs CSH, Bayshore and West Bab) which also makes you question where they really are... Should be an exciting game.

My daughters team is in the slot that could either play Huntington or Sayville. It doesn't matter to them, but I would stay away from Huntington.
Hate to take the chalk but it looks like a ESM Hunt final

C playoffs teams are set with MS 1 Baby/BBP 2/3 SWR 4 and Matt 5 they should count MS as having a loss if they win by less than 5 goals!

A playoff teams are set but there is still jockeying for position; I'll let someone with more knowledge of these teams do the handicapping as I only know some the girls from travel.

Some DI schools fading due to injuries to key players - West Bab and Sachem East. Others are getting their key players back in the game - Bay Shore and Northport. Playoffs should be interesting with West Islip and Middle County surging, although if one of the two sisters on MC gets hurt, there goes their season - like over at Sachem East.Toast. Northport and Hauppauge can't be ignored. NP and their Florida commit has to stay healthy now. Lets see what Hauppaupe does vs. WI today.

Section XI website says 13, but it does say "tentative". With dates and times associated with the seedings I would guess 13. Not sure where the 12 is coming from.

couldn't give them just a few minutes and if the game looked tougher than expected make a quick sub. Sad way to end their varsity years
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2014 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/09/14 10:24 PM
Any successful program always plays their starters and only substitues when necessarry and the substitues or playing time has nothing to do with politics. If you're child is not getting enough playing time they clearly don't meet the expectations, don't put enough effort in, or just simply shouldn't be on the team. At a highschool level nobody cares about making a player happy by putting them in the game to lift up their self esteem when it puts the game at risk. Every coach wants to win. If you're child is upset because they are not playing then they are in for a rude awakening at the college level if they even make it. Go ahead and be "SO glad" youre child doesn't go to ESM i'm sure they'll make it far if they're babied. ESM has a successful program and have made it to LIC's the past two years. Facts don't lie. You can't take anything from that program and the coaching is clearly working with the success they've been having. In the end, the parents complaining and being immature need to stop because you're not changing anything and in the real world this doesn't get you anywhere but trouble and you're setting a bad example for your children.

Was at West Islip High yesterday and caught the girls game vs. Hauppauge. What a game! West Islip has a fantastic team, but was gifted the game yesterday by the refs. The refs disallowed the winning goal by a girl from Hauppauge. What was so surprising to us was how the refs did the stick check, after the go-ahead goal by Hauppauge, with seconds left on the clock. He jammed the ball into the pocket of her stick, in full view of everyone, with so much force, ANY girls stick would've failed. I went there to enjoy Senior Day, and I did. Exciting game, but unfortunately the refs dictated the outcome of the game, not the girls. Good luck to both teams in the playoffs. Congrats to all the Seniors for West Islip. Great job by the students yesterday, giving the game a real playoff atmosphere.

How can you say that about EI How many did you graduate last year. And how many of them were over 5'10". Makes a difference.

Yes you had a wicked 5 game slide with the best teams. Didn't hear about the coaching back then.

Your wins came to teams with losing records. The teams you beat had 15 wins in total. Yes you were in some games but your season was like your last two games. Bayshore a power house now that they are healthy showed you can't hang with the top teams. Commack who has beaten teams with 19 wins and lost to all the power teams lately is not a feather in your cap.

They might as well skip the Long Island championship and just go to states. They have 1 more year to dominate in the C division then they fall off a cliff .

West Islip has beaten everyone in D1. They haven't blown away the top teams but have beaten them all. Hauppauge has a couple of losses (to Sachem East and Northport) which makes you question where they really are. But they have some impressive wins (vs CSH, Bayshore and West Bab) which also makes you question where they really are... Should be an exciting game.


Heard from several spectators that this was best lax game they had ever seen. Crazy back and forth affair. Clean and physical (only one or two cards issued). Four period OT affair with WI pulling out the victory after illegal stick took away what would have been game winning goal at end of regulation for Hauppauge. (What a set of Lax Balls on those officials for calling that!!!)

This week's games and Playoffs should be exciting!

LI All-American Showcase: My daughter just got her invitation to play in this showcase. We went online to check it out and it appears that every single coach of the teams playing is a former YJ player. So if every coach is a former YJ player is this showcase a "true showcase" or is it a YJ showcase? What colleges are registered to come?

Not sure which Smithtown East poster put themselves above Bay Shore. SE has Brentwood no quality Points and then West. BS has HHH then WM. I think the Brentwood game leaves East behind Bay Shore.

And based on the 2015 roster, it's heavily weighted with YJ players. Does anyone know of 2017 and 2017 Nassau invites went out?

Believe it or not smith east vs smith west in a non league game. doesnt count towards points.

West Islip
Northport
Middle Country
Hauppauge

Smithtown West
West Babylon
Bay Shore
Ward Melville
Sachem East
Smithtown East
Sachem North
Longwood

Sachem N beats North Bab and Longwood loses to Haypauge, so they will flip spots sachem north gets #11 and Longwood gets #12..

Bayshore beats Ward Melville and moves up 2 spots because Sachem East also loses to Northport . so Bayshore # 7, Ward Melville #8 and Sachem East #9 ... Everybody else stands.

I'm not really sure if this what you're looking for, but if you go to SectionXI and look under sports placements you will see the populations of the school districts. Elsewhere on that site are the class breakdowns.

It looks like a lot of fire-power. ONE defender. Okay, two, but one is listed as injured so presumably won't be taking the field. Which offensive powerhouse is going to defend the goal? confused

Dz MC game vs WI have any impact on seeding? MC seems to be peaking at the right time and they have a solid young team. Could be a sleeper in playoffs.

99% of the girls listed on the 2015 roster are already commited.. Why would any college coach even make the effort come to watch?? maybe to verify there offer but that seems like a stretch

Dz MC game vs WI have any impact on seeding? MC seems to be peaking at the right time and they have a solid young team. Could be a sleeper in playoffs.


West Islip to far ahead, even if they lose to MC they will stay in 1st

West Islip has beaten everyone in D1. They haven't blown away the top teams but have beaten them all. Hauppauge has a couple of losses (to Sachem East and Northport) which makes you question where they really are. But they have some impressive wins (vs CSH, Bayshore and West Bab) which also makes you question where they really are... Should be an exciting game.


Heard from several spectators that this was best lax game they had ever seen. Crazy back and forth affair. Clean and physical (only one or two cards issued). Four period OT affair with WI pulling out the victory after illegal stick took away what would have been game winning goal at end of regulation for Hauppauge. (What a set of Lax Balls on those officials for calling that!!!)

This week's games and Playoffs should be exciting!


Div 1 seedings will be determined after today and Wednesday's games. What are the final regular season predictions??


West Islip

Hauppauge
Middle Country
West Babylon

Not sure which Smithtown East poster put themselves above Bay Shore. SE has Brentwood no quality Points and then West. BS has HHH then WM. I think the Brentwood game leaves East behind Bay Shore.


smithtown east not geting any points if they beat brentwood and games against smith west is non league so they wont get amy for that game either

Top four teams are teams to beat, bottom 8 need to go through them in 2nd round.
WI versus MC this week, will tell a lot.
http://www.laxpower.com/update14/bingrl/rating63.php - different view of top 12.

Should be fun...

What year are your daughters?


It looks like a lot of fire-power. ONE defender. Okay, two, but one is listed as injured so presumably won't be taking the field. Which offensive powerhouse is going to defend the goal? confused


Last girls lax game I watched, Middies played defense about half the game... The team should be able to muddle through...

Four period OT affair with WI pulling out the victory after illegal stick took away what would have been game winning goal at end of regulation for Hauppauge. (What a set of Lax Balls on those officials for calling that!!!)

Hey if the coach asks for a stick check, and the stick is illegal, what is the ref to do. He has to call off the goal.

Bottom line is the stick was illegal....could have been for most of the game.

How would that work? There are ten spots in round 1. Once those games are played, if you are correct, then that would make nine teams for the second round. Who would the 9th team play?

Doesn't add up.

Maybe top twelve and three get a bye..

I'll type slowly for you. Go here - www.sectionxi.org - and click on "brackets" at the top, then select Girls Lacrosse from the drop down menu. Division I shows how it will work if there are 13 playoff teams. If there are only 12 teams, as some posters have stated, there is no A13 team and A4 slides forward to the next round (getting the 4th bye). For those who still don't understand, wait a couple more days and it will all be set.

Enjoyed your post!

With all the talk of how many teams make the bracket I'm surprised there has been no contact by Back of the Cage to clarify. The D1 coaches I spoke with all think its 13 yet some, who claim to have contacted Section XI, say it's 12. Yet the Section XI website has a 13 team bracket.

I guess we wait until later in the week when the bracket is posted. But why the mystery?

Anyone remember the Syracuse/Florida semi-final game at SUNY Stony Brook a couple of years back? Stick check cost Florida the game--in OT.

It really won't affect anything once the seeding is set except that the #13 team doesn't make the playoffs. It just takes them out of the equation. It saves the #4 seed from having to play/beat the #13 seed. The #4 will play the winner of the #5 v #12 game on Monday.

The problem/issue was the way the referee checked the players stick. A previous poster stated that ANY girls stick would have been illegal the way this referee checked it. I was not an immediate decision by this referee. He handled the stick and the ball for quite awhile before making his decision to take away a goal.

I would not say best goalie but she played good. ESM injuries really affecting their defense. Definitely weak spots on D now but their goalie is great!! I still see an ESM vs Huntington County Game let's hope ESM can put four solid defenders on field instead of 2 otherwise Huntington may take it again!!!

Not only does it keep them in, it bumps them up to 6th at least. Which actually could be a curse because Huntington will overtake 2nd with their win at Sayville and could line up a Sayville Rocky Point rematch

both teams played GREAT but if either coach thinks they can win a state championship without substituting at the midfield they are crazy!!! The midfield from both ends were barely functioning by game end!!! Manhasset subs every few minutes at the midfield position fresh legs means more stamina

I have noticed that many LI high school teams do not sub out midfielders. Not sure why--lack of confidence in the talent? This is not just top tier teams but mid-level teams as well. These middies are in for a shock at the next level.

Huntington--17 saves ESM--13 saves Per MSG varsity.

both teams played GREAT but if either coach thinks they can win a state championship without substituting at the midfield they are crazy!!! The midfield from both ends were barely functioning by game end!!! Manhasset subs every few minutes at the midfield position fresh legs means more stamina

ESM - Huntington
put these 2 teams together and they wont beat Manhaset.

ESM still has one of the best defenses on the island , there not lacking spots , only letting up 11 goals as the most in a game in the last two years ? That's amazing , they need to look past this lost and get stronger from it , I believe they will be a three time county champ

Talk about getting by with there skin of there teeth Rocky Point does not have a chance of competing any further . You cant win games relying on a quarter of a roster . Its called create discipline to create teamwork !! and that's something that should have been established before the season !
