Most notably, Sayville edged Connetquot 14-13 and Oceanside outlasted Hewlett 13-11 on Saturday in boys action and Locust Valley pulled away for a 17-4 victory against Bethpage in a girls game.

  2. LI Guy says:

    Both final scores…

    Lindenhurst 14, Islip 13

    Mineola 12, Glen Cove 7

    Can we please not put scrimmage, repeat, scrimmage scores out. Describe the game if you like but it seems petty for Iona to do that. Win in the regular season when it counts. Scrimmages are when coaches mess around with plays, lines, etc.
