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. The goalkeeping on both sides was exceptional. Through the first three quarters, the only two-goal lead was Bellport’s at 7-5.
The question of which was more annoying, the Mattituck/Greenport/Southold boys lacrosse uniforms with the digital camo numbers that were difficult to read from a distance or the tiny insects flying around in the still, humid air, was up for debate.
The start was a little too bumpy for Mattituck/Greenport/Southold’s liking, but before long the Tuckers smoothed things out.
