The Whitman lacrosse team, leading 5 to 1 in the 3rd quarter, ran out of gas and lost to Commack by a score to 11 to 5. The
Cougars scored 8 goals in the 4 quarter. Whitman was unable to answer back and dropped this non-league decision to its
cross town rival from Commack. The Cougars are to be complemented on their spirited play and excellent hustle.
The Walt Whitman Lacrosse team scored its first victory of the season over Longwood. The score was 8 to 7. Whitman was
ahead 7 to 2 and Longwood staged a terrific comeback and closed it to 7 to 6. Nick Woll took the next faceoff and scored the
winning goal with 40 seconds to go. Longwood came back and closed it to 8 to 7 but with only 10 seconds remaining Whitman
gained possession and the game was over. Both teams displayed periods of good lacrosse and periods when inexperience
was quite apparent. Both teams played hard and for an early game displayed some good potential for the coming season.
