As soon as the whistle blew on the first face off of the game, the Manhasset Indians dominated this game and never looked back. Manhasset was coming off a double overtime thrilling victory over Garden City, and the momentum they gained in that game continued in the LIC.
Manhasset jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first quarter, and were up 7-2 at the half.They came out like a bat out of hell by scoring 6 goals in the third quarter, and Harborfields had no answer for the Indians as they came out on top to win, 16-3.
Like Massapequa in the Class A LIC, Manhasset controlled the pace of the game. They played fast and with a ton of energy. Marc Psyllos was the catalyst at the faceoff X and created opportunities for the offense for the entire game. Psyllos even had a goal and an assist. Michael Farrell had the hot hand on offense as he scored 3 goals, along with, Chris Glynn, who had 2 goal and an assist. Freshman, Joseph Terenzi continued to tear it up in the 2019 playoffs after scoring the game winning goal against Garden City in double overtime. Terenzi had 2 goals and an assist and is making a name for himself in Long Island lacrosse. Manhasset is firing on all cylinders right now and they look ready to call themselves state champions.
Harborfields had no answer for the Manhasset Indians, and they could not get anything going in this game. Coming into the 2019 season, Harborfields graduated a ton of talent from the 2018 Suffolk County class B championship team. Head Coach Glenn Lavey did a great job developing his players, and it payed off as they can called themselves Suffolk County champs again. Looking into 2020, losing leading point scorer Thomas Sangiovanni is going to be a critical loss, but Harborfields had a lot of juniors and sophomores who stepped up this season and filled the void of the 2018 class. Nicholas Caccamo is an absolute stud, and he did it all for the Tornadoes from the faceoff X, scooping up ground balls, and contributing on offense. Danny Alnwick, Jonathan Osmun, and Ian McGullam all had strong 2019 Campaigns, and they will be the leaders in the effort for Harborfields’ quest to win the Class B Suffolk County championship in 2020.
