The Bay Shore girls’ lacrosse team, coming off its first loss of the season, made a statement Friday afternoon by defeating host Northport, 10-7 in Suffolk County Division I action.
Senior midfielder Caroline deLyra led the Marauders with four goals and an assist and goalkeeper Dylan Teitelbaum made nine saves, many of them from point blank range, to help the Marauders move to 9-1 on the season.
“This was a huge win for us,” said deLyra, “We knew that we couldn’t lose because we couldn’t get kicked out of the second spot after losing the first spot.”
“On defense we had great ground balls, great picks, picking off the ball, everything was great. Our season has been great so far’ this is one of the best teams we’ve had since I’ve been here.”
Bay Shore – coming off a tough loss a week ago to Ward Melville – came out aggressive, scoring three goals before the 17 minute mark in the first half. Cynthia DelCore had two goals and two assists and Carly Cox added two goals.
The game was also a rematch of the last two class A Suffolk County championships. The Marauders pulled the upset in 2010 and Northport came out victorious in 2011.
“It’s always a very big game against Northport,” said Bay Shore head coach Allison Pfeffer. “They are so well coached.
“So far our season is going pretty good, but there is always room for improvement.”
Bay Shore managed to slow down the pace of the game and keep Northport junior standout Cortney Fortunato in check. Teitelbaum was called upon to make some big saves throughout the game.
“I think she did an excellent job and she was on today,” Pfeffer said of her goalkeeper. “She was very sharp and she was determined to play a good game.”
Northport (8-3) was able to pull within two with 13:36 remaining in the second half, but could not get any closer. Fortunato and Ali Pavinelli each scored three goals.
“All we did was turn over the ball today,” said Northport head coach Carol Rose. “Our season has been disappointing; we have a lot of great players who haven’t put it together yet.”
Northport drops to 8-3 in league play and is preparing for a key game against West Islip on May 3.
