  2. slacrosse says:

    Got to hand it to Lakeland Panas today. They’re taking on one heck of a team from the MIAA in Loyola-Blakefield who only lost to Garden City by 1 goal. Will make LP a better team.

  3. lax4 says:

    St. Anthony’s barely beats St. John the Baptist, 8-7. Amazing game by St. John the Baptist who was leading the game in the 4th quarter 7-5.

  4. slacrosse says:

    4-3 Greeley over Rye after 2

  5. slacrosse says:

    5-4 Greeley end 3

  6. LaxLessons.com says:

    Final: Loyola-Blakefield 9, Lakeland/Panas 2

  7. LaxLessons.com says:

    Final: Somers 13, Brewster 8

  8. slacrosse says:

    7-5 Rye wins- 1 empty net

  9. slacrosse says:

    Nice for Rye to get that opening season win. Rusty is all phases but probably more so on D with some missed slides after 1st defender was beat. Also felt Rye shot selection not great (partial credit to Greeley D) but got better as te ame progressed. Fortunately for Rye their goalie White had an MVP game including a couple of almost point blank saves.

    Greeley is well coached and definitely in the mix for being one of the stronger Class B teams and to be reckoned with for anyone this season. Some strong players and a very good goalie.

  10. hanson says:

    11-4 Kennedy beats Edgemont.
