June 23, 2021 — Monthly lacrosse top 10 for games played through June 20

So, because we’ve been interleaving our field hockey awards this season on Tuesdays and Fridays, we’ve decided we’ll do our third-week lacrosse feature items a day later this week. You’ll therefore see our lacrosse Statwatch on Saturday this week.

We’ve had a number of tremendous closeout results over the weekend, and we will also have some epic results coming out of the handful of state championships yet to be identified.

Our honorary No. 11 Team of the Month is Eldersburg Liberty (Md.), which managed a 10-9 win over Fallston to give the school its first state championship in its first trip to the state final in 21 years.

1. Northport (N.Y.) 18-0
Season complete: Tigers beat Massapequa 10-6 last Saturday in the Long Island championship, but their major test was the Section XI title match, rallying from four goals down to beat Smithtown (N.Y.) East 9-8

2. Brooklandville St. Paul’s (Md.) 15-1
Season complete: Gators have not just one, but two wins over long-time powerhouse Owings Mills McDonogh (Md.), including last weekend’s 17-8 win in the IAAM Class “A” final

8. Darien (Conn.) 12-0

10. East Chapel Hill (N.C.) 13-0
Season complete: Wildcats beat Matthews Weddington (N.C.) in the final of the NCHSAA tournament

11. Eldersburg Liberty (Md.) 9-4
The Lions were able to get the win thanks to a pair of sophomores. Riley Matthiesen scored five goals, and Jenna Evans took center draws in the second half and won many of them, including one in the final two minutes when her side was serving a two-minute yellow card
