From a neutral spectator’s point of view, the Long Island Class D boys lacrosse final wasn’t much to look at. From Mattituck/Southold’s standpoint, though, it was a thing of beauty.
Mattituck certainly held up its end of things and couldn’t be faulted for the one-sided nature of Saturday’s game. All that counted to the Tuckers was that they had claimed a second straight Long Island championship with their 16-6 hammering of Oyster Bay at Hofstra University’s James M. Shuart Stadium. READ
It could be said that Center Moriches stole the Suffolk County Class B boys basketball championship.
Not that the Red Devils didn’t earn every bit of their 88-66 defeat of Mattituck Saturday, from every single one of Micah Snowden’s 34 points to every one of the 19 steals Center Moriches made to every one of the 28 turnovers it forced Mattituck into committing.
It was pilfery at its best. READ
Mattituck might have looked at its penultimate regular-season boys basketball game as a slam dunk, but Ryan Seifert took things to a different level.
Seifert, who had never dunked in a game before, was presented with a golden opportunity 5 minutes, 26 seconds into Monday night’s Suffolk County League VI game at Port Jefferson High School. Xavier Allen set him up and Seifert took care of the rest. The 6-3 senior slammed down a right-handed dunk. READ
By no means did Mattituck expect its playoff game at Babylon High School to be a walk in the park. Even so, the Tuckers couldn’t have expected an orange crush.
A high school boys basketball game typically goes for 32 minutes, but it took only the opening few minutes for Babylon to essentially win the Suffolk County Class B outbracket game on Saturday. READ
Nothing is easy.
Not in Suffolk County League VII boys basketball, anyway. READ
