The South Fork boys lacrosse team used back-to-back penalties, which cost William Floyd its starting and backup goalkeepers Saturday, to pull within one goal, and tied the game when both teams were at full strength, but it was as close as the Islanders would come in a 16-9 loss to the Colonials Saturday, April 27, at Sachem North High School. The game was part of Sachem’s Lax For Autism series.
Floyd jumped to a quick 3-0 lead early in the first quarter, but two straight unsportsmanlike calls cost the Colonials their goalkeepers, which resulted in easy goal seconds into the two-man down situation. Logan Gurney fired a shot from the right side of the goal 20 yards out and scored to make it a one-goal game with 55.1 seconds left in the first, and four minutes into the second, Jackson Marcincuk scored on an empty-netter, despite the teams being back at full strength to tie the game. Floyd scored three straight once more before Gurney broke the streak. The Colonials ended up ahead 8-4 by halftime.

Kings Park Beat Hurricanes
Tyler Nolan had two goals and two assists, and Jaden Alfano St. John, Peter Traina, and Jack Gilbride each added a goal, but peppering the scoreboard across all four quarters didn’t do it, as Westhampton dropped a 9-5 contest to Kings Park April 27.
