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

Reaching the Suffolk County Class C final for the first time last year was an exciting thing for the Mattituck/Greenport/Southold boys lacrosse team. However, the Tuckers were looking for more this time around when they returned to the title game on Wednesday. One gets the sense that losing to Babylon in the county final for the second straight year is already getting old for them.

It can also serve as motivation for next year. READ
