It was North Fork vs. South Fork yesterday in Mattituck, where the Mattituck/Greenport/Southold boys lacrosse team took on the South Fork (East Hampton/Bridgehampton/Southampton/Pierson/Ross) team.

Mattituck set the tone early as they scored one minute into the game. They capitalized on their speed and quick passing to keep the tempo of the game at a fast pace. It continued into the second quarter, as they continued to score, but South Fork had begun to find holes in the defense and tallied a few goals. By the half, it was 9-3 Mattituck.

At the start of second half Mattituck was kind of quiet and allowed South Fork to get a couple more goals on some careless penalties. By the fourth quarter, Mattituck regrouped and poured it on to finish the game with a 19-7 win.

With yesterday’s win, Mattituck/Greenport/Southold improved to 5-4-0 in D-II, 6-5-0 overall. The boys’ next home game is Tuesday, May 2 against Eastport/South Manor. Game time: 5 p.m.
