Patience is not only a virtue, but to play winning lacrosse, it just may be a necessity.

Both coaches clearly understood that, spending a good deal of their time on the sideline Saturday morning, reminding their players to remain patient when they had the ball. Mount Sinai’s Al Bertolone repeatedly yelled out the “p” word. “Patience! Patience!” he implored. “Stay patient!” READ

Nowadays, the Mattituck/Southold girls lacrosse players can chuckle at the memory. Once upon a time, though — not all that long ago, really — the Tuckers lost a lot. Wins were hard to come by for the developing team as it struggled to find its way. So when one of the players spoke about how nice it would be to win a state championship one day, laughter would follow, as if to say, it’s never going to happen.

Or is it? READ

It could have been mistaken for a playoff game, if not for the biting wind and cold or the fact that these two high school girls lacrosse teams will not meet in the playoffs, being in two separate classes.

The level of play, however, was playoff caliber, and that had to warm the hearts of both coaches, Mattituck/Southold’s Matt Maloney and Eastport-South Manor’s Becky Thorn, on this raw Tuesday morning. READ

Spring has sprung and a new season has begun.

Not that it felt or looked like spring. Banks of snow were piled along the sides of the girls lacrosse field at the Pulaski Sports Complex in Riverhead (with the promise of more snow to come) and temperatures were in the mid-30s. Just a few hours after spring officially arrived, Mattituck/Southold and Riverhead ushered in their own season with Tuesday’s non-league game. READ

Perhaps it was predestined that Chelsea Marlborough would be headed to Harvard University.

It was a sign of things to come three years ago, the summer before her freshman year, when a North Carolina coach kidded Marlborough for purchasing a Harvard lacrosse shirt at a camp store. As Marlborough recalled, the store offered only Harvard gear. READ

College signing ceremonies don’t always go in threes, but lacrosse players Alex Beebe, Ashley Burns and Jane DiGregorio wouldn’t have it any other way.

The three Mattituck High School seniors are close friends, have risen through the ranks together and played on the same teams for years, so it seemed only natural to them. Why not put pen to paper and sign their national letters of intent together at the same time and place? READ

Scanning down the Mattituck/Southold girls lacrosse team’s 28-player roster, two things stand out. They would be the Tuckers’ only two seniors. And one of them, goalie Emily Perry, sat out the entire season with an injury.

The only starting player from this year’s team that the Tuckers lose to graduation is defender Corinne Reda.

Things had started well for Mattituck/Southold, just not well enough. That was the sticking point.

Chelsea Marlborough won the game’s first seven draws, helping the Tuckers to a 4-2 lead in their first state girls lacrosse semifinal. Bronxville, however, won the next five draws, and with it the momentum that brought the Broncos their first state championship in the Class D final at SUNY/Cortland today.
