Garden City - 2015 Eighth Grade Cherokee Conference Champions

The Garden City 8th Grade team defended their 2014 Seventh Grade Division Championship by defeating an outstanding Smithtown team, 10-8, in the 2015 Championship game of the Eighth Grade Cherokee Conference, LISGYLL's premier conference. In 2014, the team went undefeated and this year they did it again, finishing 8-0, to go 17-0 over two years. In 2014 the team went 8-0 to win the Seventh Grade West Conference and then defeated the East Conference Champion, Connetquot, in the Division Championship game.  An impressive team and accomplishment to say the least over their two year run in LISGYLL. Congratulations to the teams players and coaches.
The Mohawk Eighth Grade Conference Championship saw Rockville Centre (4-2-1) playing Farmingdale (2-4-1) for the third time this season.  Farmingdale earned their way into the championship game with a tremendous upset win in the semis over the top seeded Huntington team who had been 5-1 at the time. RVC had beaten Oyster Bay in the semis. In the two previous games played between Farmingdale and RVC they had tied in their first meeting and then in the second meeting Farmingdale won by a single end of the game goal. It was no different in the championship game.  The two teams were tied at halftime 3-3 and then at the end of the second half they were still tied 6-6 for over time. Neither team scored in the first 6 minute over time period so they went into sudden victory.  With a minute and a half left in the first sudden victory period and Farmingdale down a player, due to a yellow card, the Dalers scored to win the Championship.  It just does not get much better than that. A great game between two very good and competitively balanced teams.  Congratulations to Farmingdale. 

The Cold Spring Harbor seventh grade team, who were the East Conference Champs, won the 2015 Long Island Senior Girls Youth Lacrosse Seventh Grade Division Championship in an exciting well played win over the West Conference Champions, Garden City.  CSH had defeated West Islip and Garden City had beaten Manhasset Orange in the semis in order to get to this final game.  Cold Spring Harbor got off to an early lead and led at half time 6-1.  However Garden City came back strong in the second half outscoring CSH 3-1 but ultimately fell short loosing to the excellent CSH team 7-4. Congratulations to Cold Spring Harbor, as well as Garden City, and the League looks forward to both teams coming back in 2016 to compete for the 8th grade Championship.

The Wantagh 8th grade LISGYLL team won a dramatic and exciting 2013 Eighth Grade Conference A Championship against an extremely excellent Cold Spring Harbor team in the final game of the season.  Cold Spring entered the game undefeated having won their semi final game against a good Port Washington 8th grade team.  Wantagh entered the Championship game with a 6-2 record and having won their semi final game against the always tough and competitive Harborfields team.  In the second week of the season Cold Spring Harbor had pulled out a regular season victory over Wantagh by the score of 7-5.  In the outstanding championship game the two teams went to overtime and Wantagh came out on the plus side this time out.  Both teams are marvelously coached and play the game as well as anyone around.  Congratulations to both teams for two outstanding seasons and years in LISGYLL.  The League wishes both teams the best of luck as they move onto High School.
