This past Saturday, the Great Neck Jaguars participated in the State Cup’s semifinals against a very competitive team from Commack. The game was very tightly played, leaving the score at a lock of 0 - 0 up until the final 10 minutes. It was at this point that Lauren Reiss made a spectacular play. The ball was being controlled by Commack’s defender in the far corner of the goalie box when Lauren, seemingly out of nowhere and with a lot of energy and speed, came from the other side of the box to behind the defender, stole the ball, and simultaneously kicked it toward the goal. Her shot sent the ball spinning and curving into the corner of goal, shocking not only the Commack goalie but all the players and spectators. Julia Steiner, the team’s star goalie, secured the win. She was absolutely amazing with more than a dozen saves. Everyone was impressed with her complete control and command of the net and box throughout the game.

The Great Neck P.A.L. boys 5th/6th grade team gave their mothers a great gift this past weekend. After a string of close games and ties, they won their first game of the season against a tough East Meadow team. On a sunny Mother’s Day, this group of boys, who are playing lacrosse together for the first time, won a hard fought 3-2 contest.
Great Neck played a solid and consistent four quarters, which allowed the boys to stay composed even when East Meadow had a last ditch shot with one second left in the game. Goalie Max Gal made many saves and initiated countless clears from deep in the defensive zone. The defensive unit of Brad Goodstein, Andrew Abrudescu and Karan Thadhani shut down the high powered offense of East Meadow with many well timed stick checks, slides and body checks.
