The video above is the latest episode of This Week in Lacrosse, the weekly news show that LaxRecords does on YouTube. This week it highlights the GEICO Lacrosse Showcase, which involves several teams from the Northeast Region: Darien (Conn.), Lincoln-Sudbury (Mass.), St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) and Ward Melville (N.Y.).
LaxRecords Founder Mike Loveday is attending Saturday and will have photos and a recap of the event as part of next week’s This Week in Lacrosse.
Joey Spallina from Mt. Sinai (N.Y.) already has 82 points this season through 11 games and leads Suffolk County in scoring. The 2022 player has almost matched his season totals from his 8th-grade year in which he totaled 84 points. And he’s done it in six fewer games.
The attackman is averaging 7.45 points per game this season and already has 166 career points in 28 games. Of the players in New York that have played five seasons on the varsity team, several of them have scored at least 500 career points.
Former West Islip (N.Y.) star Nick Galasso is the leading scorer in Long Island history with 500 career points. LaxRecords has been unable to secure Galasso’s 8th grade and freshman-year stats, but the future Orange scored 272 points over his final two seasons. Depending on how many games Mt. Sinai plays, it could give Spallina the chance to become the leading scorer in Long Island history.
Spallina is the son of New York Lizards head coach and 91 Crush head coach Joe Spallina.
Upset of the Week
Sal Miccio from Northport (N.Y.) scored four goals to help Northport pull a 7-5 upset win over Ward Melville (N.Y.). The senior scored with three minutes left in the second quarter to give the Tigers a 4-2 lead at halftime, then scored as part of a 3-0 run in the second half to extend the lead.
Ryan McCarthy had three points on two assists and a goal and goalie Declan Noonan made 11 saves to lead the Tigers.
Chaminade (N.Y.) trailed St. Ignatius Prep (Calif.) 6-0 after the first quarter in a battle of coastal powers. St. Ignatius Prep was looking for its first East Coast win of the year, but Chaminade stormed back in the second, outscoring the Wildcats 7-0 and take the lead for good.
Tom Rogan led the Flyers with five points while six others each scored two. Goalie Liam Entenmann made seven saves in the victory.
Lincoln-Sudbury (Mass.) exacted some revenge for Hingham (Mass.) defeating them in last year’s semifinals with a 12-9 win in the 2019 Coaches Challenge Cup. Matt Ward scored six goals and an assist to help the Warriors improve to 7-0 and end Hingham’s undefeated season.
