With just a handful of games left, the Hicksville boys lacrosse team finds themselves “in the mix” and a “second-tier team” according to Assistant Coach Tom Kinsella.

They currently stand at 5-5 overall (2-3 in division play) and will certainly have the ability to control their own destiny as the season is dwindling to its finale. They could be in much better position had it not been for an uncanny amount of misfortune. They have lost their five games by a total of six goals. Their largest defeat was 10-8 at the hands of Cold Spring Harbor.

JV Baseball Falls To Massapequa

Written by Vinny Messana, hicksville@antonnews.com Thursday, 24 April 2014 09:42

Every once in a while you just tip your cap to the opposition. That was the type of game it was for Hicksville’s JV baseball team in their 3-0 loss to Massapequa. The starting pitcher for the Massapequa Chiefs, Patrick Clyne threw a complete game shutout, while allowing three hits, walking none and striking out four.

Clyne was forced to pitch under duress only one time and that was in the third inning with the game still scoreless. He allowed a two-out single to opposing pitcher Terrence Wong. The next two batters followed with infield hits to load the bases. He was able to make a big pitch, however, to end the threat and keep the Comets off the board.
