T-Birds win on Senior Night


BOHEMIA—In May, the Connetquot High School boys lacrosse team took on conference rival Patchogue-Medford High School, under the lights, as the community recognized the program’s graduating seniors.    

The T-Birds then took an early lead against a determined Pat-Med team. Connetquot’s aggressive defense and poise on offense would result in an impressive 11-7 win.  The T-Birds improve to 7-6 and move to ninth place of 23 teams in Suffolk County’s Division 1.

Leading scorers for Connetquot were Derek Walter (3), Tyler Cordes (3) and Tyler McCarthy (2).  Michael Ballinger, Zach Pizzimenti and Kyle Strayer each scored once against Patchogue-Medford.  Connetquot goalie Jack McAteer was credited with eight saves in the Connetquot home win.
