The North Shore Mens Lacrosse team went 1and 1 this week, bringing their overall record to 3 and 4. The week began with a game against top-ranked Manhasset. Despite five goals from senior attack man Chris Dellavecchia, the Vikings were unable to overcome the high-powered Manhasset offense and eventually fell to the Indians 14-5. North Shore did bounce right back two days later with a convincing 14-7 win over Bellmore J.F.K. High School. The Vikings got off to a quick start leading 4-1 after the first quarter. But the Kennedy Cougars fought back and were able to even the score at four a piece going into halftime. North Shore was able to pull away in the second half behind the scoring of Dellavecchia and fellow senior attack man Tommy Kilderry. Both players finished the game with six goals. Adding two goals of his own and controlling the ball at the face-off X was senior Robbie Grabher. Helping North Shore hold J.F.K. to only three goals in the second half was sophomore goalie Alec Volpe, sophomore defenseman Nick Caparelli, and senior midfielder Paul Faglione.
The Girl's Lacrosse Team is 6-3 overall (3-3 League) midway through the season. The Vikings stacked up wins against Carle Place, Calhoun, and East Meadow. In the upcoming weeks, the team will see Division, Port Washington and Cold Spring Harbor. Freshman Laura Wefer scored her first goal of the season midway through the first half of the Calhoun game. Cara Dellavecchia, Denise Kilderry and Danielle Valasiadis managed the defense throughout the week putting a halt on Massapequa's top players. Although the Vikings did not come up with the win, the team put on an extraordinary performance. Goalie Karli Portnoy has 40 saves in 4 games and has been a tremendous threat to her opponents.
