  1. Bernie says:

    Nisky! Baby! proud of the capital region representing vs the big boys!

  2. Curt says:

    GC playing their best lacrosse right now but Nisky still too much for them. Nisky by 2.

  3. Old Rugger says:

    Game will start out tight and at half will be close but as someone posted earlier that Nisky defense adjusts and wearrs you down and now Nisky has an offense. I’ll say 12-8 Nisky.

    • Doctordoom says:

      GC is peaking at the right time. Defense is nasty. Goaltending is solid. Offense can wear you down with its methodical but precise play calling. But the real factor hear is at the X. Sully is the man. it will come down to possessions, and w Sullivan at the X you can count on 75%+ FO wins. Go Trojans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • slacrosse says:

      Yeah always thought Nisky could be really nasty if they had a top O to go with their traditionally strong D–almost happened last season with that close game vs West Islip. Now they have one!

  4. Nisky will dominate and win the State Championship!

  5. Justlaxin says:

    Nisky will be A next year anyway. Congrats to GC.

  6. RiseUp says:

    CANNOT be mad at GC for stalling. That is part of the game. They watched Nisky burn a fantastic Yorktown team by letting them run and gun. It’s all about your game plan and GC had a better one last night. Nisky is a fantastic team and they play that game 100 times they probably split 50/50. Great job, but you can’t complain about stalling.

    • slacrosse says:

      Agree only because its part of the present rules.

      What’s needed is a change of rules to bring in a shot clock like college lax, high school/college basketball and football for getting off a play—it really works as we all know.
