Girls lax uses home-field advantage


Last week, the Sayville girls varsity lacrosse team used their leverage of home-field advantage while hosting Harborfields. 

Erin Schaeffer christened the Sayville offense by scoring very early in the first half. Not long after, Brooke Hoss and Bella Graziano each threw one into the net for 1 point each. Harborfields struck with 15:41 remaining in the first 25 to get on the board, cutting Sayville's lead to 3-1. 

Sayville poured it on with five more goals, two for No. 19 Meg McLaughlin, and after 25 minutes of play, Sayville had by far the upper hand leading by a score of 8-1. With more dominance in the second half, the Golden Flashes scored five more times, including another for Hoss with 11:17 remaining, and No. 8 Bridget Manning shot one between the pipes with eight minutes to go. 

Harborfields scored two at the tail end, but it was not enough as the Golden Flashes ran away with a double-digit win. Sayville defeated Harborfields 13-4. No. 28 Jess Harclerode was as tough as they come in her goaltending duties to contribute to the victory, remaining undefeated. 

At just past the midway point in the season, Sayville varsity lacrosse holds a strong record of 7-1, having since beaten Center Moriches, Rocky Point and West Islip, and took their first L of the year as West Babylon had the upper hand in an 8-7 contest on Wednesday. Sayville beat Comsewogue 17-8 on Friday night.
