Say this about the Bellport and Mattituck/Greenport/Southold high school boys lacrosse teams: They make a good match for each other.

When the two Suffolk County Division II teams with similar records played on Thursday, it was intense and spellbinding. One team would score, then the other would reply with a goal of its own in a captivating, back-and-forth contest. The lead changed hands six times and the score was tied nine times.

It can also serve as motivation for next year. READ

In Suffolk County boys lacrosse, the road to a Class C championship runs squarely through Babylon. With previous champions like Shoreham-Wading River, Mount Sinai and John Glenn bumped up to Class B, it has been the Panthers feasting on the remaining competition.  READ
