BY JAKE WHITE Underdog South Side showed speed and determination in last Friday night’s Nassau Class B lacrosse quarterfinals at Hofstra’s soccer complex, but a strong second half performance lifted Garden City to a 15- 7 victory and a semifinal match with Long Beach on May 23. The winner of that game will move on to the Nassau Class B Championship against the Manhasset-Wantagh winner, scheduled for Tuesday, May 29 at Hofstra’s Shuart Stadium at 8 p.m. Goals by Devin Dwyer, Patric Berkery, Justin Guterding and Rob Savage gave the Trojans a 4-2 lead after a quarter. The same foursome scored again in the second period to put their team ahead, 8-3, in what looked as if it might be a rout, but South Side fought back with two late goals. The last came after a Trojan give-away with 17 seconds left forced goalie Dan Marino to make a brilliant save. Undeterred, the Cyclones hit the net as the horn sounded to end the half. Trailing 8-5, momentum seemed to have swung to the underdogs. But just as they have all year, the Trojans (17-0) owned the second half. Senior playmaker Devin Dwyer took over the game in the third quarter with two goals and two assists, giving him eight points on the day. GC’s lead was stretched to 13-6 and they coasted home as Liam Kennedy and Jack Worstell hit the nets for the final margin. “Give South Side credit,” said Garden City coach Steve Finnell. “They played very hard and showed excellent quickness at times. I’m glad we settled down and played our game in the second half.” Goalie Dan Marino showed no signs of the ankle injury that hampered him after the Manhasset game. He recorded nine saves, several of them spectacular, before leaving with a 14-6 lead. Middies James Sullivan and Rob Savage won 15 of 23 faceoffs against South Side which features Sean Kenny, regarded as one of the best in Nassau. The semifinal opponent, Long Beach, trounced Plainedge, 20-7. The Marines have a lot of firepower and some fine athletes. Garden City won the earlier meeting in April, 13-8. LAX NOTES: The Trojans’ 17th straight win is the second longest active winning streak in the state. Upstate Class C power Cazenovia has won 33 in a row....Dwyer’s four assists against South Side raised his career total to 199. His season totals are 32-57-89. Guterding has 36-34-70 and Kennedy 46-7-53 through the quarterfinals. Quite a high scoring attack.... Berkery leads the middies with 16-8-24.....GC earned its 28th trip to the “final four” in 29 years and is the six-time defending county champ.
